From the very beginning of the novel Jane has the courage to defy her aunt when she is unfairly punished in the red room. The cultural and social context of the age must be taken into account when analyzing such behavior. At the time, Jane Eyre’s gesture of talking back to people was totally improper, because women especially poor ones were expected to meekly accept their lot in life. But she cannot keep quiet and merely accept her condition as a poor orphan, because at the end of her discourse, she feels her soul begin "to expand, to exult, with the strangest sense of freedom, of triumph, I ever felt... as if an invisible bond had burst and that I had struggled out into unhoped-for liberty". This is the beginning of a spirit that Jane carries forward into her future relationships with men, beginning with the detestable Mr.

Margery sees the similarity to her own case, becomes frightened at the possible canine consequences, and asks Sirith to bring Wilekin to her. He arrives, and Margery agrees to be his lover. The main interest of this fabliau - and the way it differs most from the French fabliaux - is in its use of direct speech and the way in which that direct speech is used for purposes of characterization. Of the 450 lines in the poem 397 are direct speech, and the personalities and the attitudes of the three characters are gradually revealed through that direct speech, so that what were stock characters in the analogues - the amorous clerk, the young wife, and the old woman - become in this poem developed characters, people who have a three-dimensional quality to them.

Though parents treat their children differently according to their genders, the constant characteristic that is sought after and admired in a child is filial piety regardless of parental treatment. In this paper I will discuss the difference in the way that male and female offspring are treated, but how despite these differences the one commonality, or shared virtue that is sought after is filial piety. Males in this memoir are praised for their scholarship, position but mostly their gender itself. The men in this story such as prince Sado and his father King Yongjo, are praised by Lady Hyegyong for their smarts and development. Lady Hyegyong discusses Sado’s quick
Students Name Teachers Name Course Date Birth Mark My reaction about the story is that the story’s final message is very good and it tells about many things that are not clearly good or bad. Nathaniel Hawthorne tells about the scientist Aylmer who is also a philosopher and that is why he always believes on his philosophy. So he uses his scientific research about the things he wants to have. Although he is a very good scientist and philosopher but he does not like his wife Georgiana the way she is. Author’s writing way of telling about Georgiana was very good, but he must have given something about her character as well.
She treated the children as if they were her own. She made sure they ate and had nice, and clean clothes to wear whenever school started. Atticus was definitely a major role model for both his children because he was a well-mannered father. From the beginning of the novel until the end, his kids were trying to make him proud of them. “I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand” is just one of the non-violent, influential lessons he told his children.

“Suddenly with a strained sound Daisy bent her head into the shirts and began to cry stormily. ‘They’re such beautiful shirts,’ she sobbed, her voice muffled in the thick folds. ‘It makes me sad because I’ve never seen such- such beautiful shirts before” (98). Often, critics have simply inferred from this quote that Daisy is incredibly materialistic, and have left their analysis of her character barely brushing the surface. Daisy cries because the man who once looked at her like she was a person and indispensable is now trying to buy her, objectifying her once more in a way she never expected him to.
