She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him. I’ll not have you around him, picking up bad habits and learning Lord-knows-what” (Lee 301).

Rex Walls made Jeannette’s life scary and eventful, but she continued to love him and keep him on a pedestal. Jeannette 's mother, on the other hand, came across more negatively according to my classmates and I. While there are some extreme situations in the book that are absolutely horrible for a child to experience, many of the situations with her mom were the worst. Sure she was starving and that was bad, but it was the mother who was mentioned more, not the fact that Jeannette was hungry.

In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles). Although Emilia does not ever say these powerful words out loud, she is still willing to not follow her husbands commands despite his strong character. Emilia proves again that she has powerful thoughts when she stated that,”Let husbands know, Their wives have sense like them; they see and smell, And have their palates both for sweet and sour As husbands have’ (Othello IV.3.92-5) Emilia contends that women are physically the same to men,they both get distraught and have issues that trouble each other, they should treat each other similarly. Women can still analyze literature about the inequality and rights for women through many of the injustices that are modern today.
As the title suggests, pride and prejudice collide in this scene. Even during the proposal, Mr. Darcy kept mentioning Elizabeth’s social rank and family status, which she only saw as his pride to tell her that he liked her against will, reason, and even against character.

This chapter is critical because two protagonists with pride and prejudice are directly confronted by one another, for the first time in the novel, which in a sense is violent yet an honest and truthful moment to further establish the relationship between

The bible in the book of Ephesian states “Wives, submit to your husbands as to the Lord.
The knife! Damn all of them! And the monster who invented them!” (6). She reminds the Bridegroom that his father and oldest brother both died at the hands of men who used weapons. They are things “that can cut into a man’s body!” (6), symbolizing death and destruction.
