She went to such extents to run away in the cold to a shabby cab so nobody see’s her. Her husband most likely worked hard so they could buy that wrap, so it was VERY rude of her. Secondly, on page 3 the text states “ It annoys me not to have a single piece of jewelry, not a single ornament, nothing to put on.” Mathilde is expressing to her husband that she would rather not go the ball at all since she has no

Since she married her new husband, she has constantly been living in the background of his shadow. Ultimately, this would be classed as pathetic fallacy because her husband was full of darkness.

Evidence to support this is: ‘I get lonely’ Curley’s wife said ‘you can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley else he gets mad’ .This quotation represents the isolation and solitude that she went through in her life.
Through the mother we can guess that Emily, when she was old enough to notice her surroundings, hated the care she was given outside of her mother. From going to her father’s relatives to daycare she changed both physically and in her demeanor. Not getting a glimpse into Emily’s head forces the reader to infer what Emily feels towards her mother and her situation based off of the descriptions noticed by her mother. No one around Emily saw the uniqueness her mother did, this leads to the assumption that she became very depressed. If the story was changed to a different perspective the emotions of the mother would get lost or forgotten.

What if you and your family got kicked out of your house, moved across the country, were forced to live in stables and fed rotten food all because you had a great grandfather who was Japanese? This is how it was for the Japanese-Americans living on the West Coast of the U.S., all because of their Japanese ancestors. How could the Japanese-Americans put an end to this outrageous disaster? How could it have been avoided? Around the 1940’s, over 120,000 Japanese-Americans were removed from their own houses to ten different internment camps across America.
Japan’s motives for world domination lead them to Pearl Harbor, where they killed thousands. First off, there are a few big details that you need to know about Pearl Harbor. to begin, this dreadful day happened on December 7, 1941(Pearl Harbor).
