This is an authentic kind of courage appearing out of Chanda. She is shows us that it is more important for her brother to feel safe than let him take on the weight of doubt she carries. She does it, even though Soly doesn 't believe her. Here the reader can clearly see her courage and selflessness because she is going about putting herself of harm 's way to protect her brother. On page 186 when Chanda is talking to Mrs. Tafa about Emmanuel and the truth behind his death.
With Lilo they so intimately allowed us to identify with her loneliness and isolation, without making the movie overly depressing. The way they were able to portray what it means for an older sister to raise a younger sister, that includes the friction and fighting that occurs with this type arrangement was beautiful. To show the friction and fighting in a way that was humorous but relatable was completely genuine. Last, I found myself on the edge of my seat rooting for Nani to proving to the social worker "Mr. Bubbles" that she is fully capable of taking care of Lilo and convince him that Lilo belongs with her, not a
The mistress is proud of her sister Claire, but this doesn’t stop the mistress from taking a few shots at Claire anyway. She admires Claire’s accomplishments and even looks to Claire for approval. Claire’s view of the relationship between the mistress and her married professor is accepting. Claire says, “Just go for it, sister. If you can unhinge a marriage, it’s ripe for unhinging, it would happen sooner or later, it might as well be you.” Ironically, Claire’s lack of judgment makes her the better sister.
Charlotte Anna Perkins Gilman was an iconic feminist of her turn-of-the-century time period where she advocated for women’s rights specifically as well as having controversial, even contradictory beliefs in areas of other social reform. As an author, lecturer, and social critic of the Reconstruction to Industrial movement time period where crucial societal changes were occurring for women, she was able to speak on and revolt against the stereotypical submissive role that women played in the American household of that time, with the seemingly sole purpose of motherhood and subservience to a husband. In addition, her political standpoint was visible in her fiction and nonfiction writings, the most famous being “The Yellow Wallflower”. This short story is told from a narrative, journaled perspective that is a reflection of a true account from Gilman’s
and, as time went on, she did not only become Lady Russell’s “most dear and highly valued god-daughter, favourite and friend” but also “it was only in Anne that she could fancy the mother to revive again” (Persuasion 7), meaning she sees herself as a substitute mother. From this it follows that Lady Russell is very protective of Anne and naturally only wants what is best for her in order to ensure that she has a good future. However, Lady Russell’s goodwill/favour becomes a danger to Anne’s happy ending since the best for Anne is actually what Lady Russell personally considers to be best and this view is not necessarily in accord with what would make Anne happy as the two women do not share the same basic set of beliefs: Lady Russell is presented as a wealthy (cf. Persuasion 7), “benevolent” (Persuasion 12), “charitable” (ibid.) widow (cf.
And if “Had anyone been there with her, she’d have been still and faint and hot with chagrin, (Mairs 259).” Instead of pitying herself, Mairs is able joke about her hardships in her day-to-day life despite having physical incapabilities. She then continues with a steady, yet uplifting tone as she explains the reasoning behind why she labels herself as a “cripple”, stating that it is a “clean word, straightforward, and precise, (Mairs 260).” She believes that words like “disabled” or “handicapped” are words that are “moving [her] away from her condition, to be widening the gap between word and reality, (Mairs 260).” By using these euphemisms for her condition, people tend to view her as something she isn 't. She believes that these words characterize no one because "Society is no readier to accept crippledness than to accept death, war, sex, sweat, or wrinkles, (Mairs
Using her race, gender, and class to her advantage, even though these might appear as weaknesses at first glance. In “To Kill a Mockingbird”, the character Mayella was not a good character, but she was a great one. Even though it was a terrible situation, Mayella still took the opportunity to make the best out of it. Eventually, Mayella obtains what she wants, even at the cost of Tom Robinson and Bob Ewell, making Mayella a stone cold character who will do anything as long as her desires are what come first and
The relationship was not necessarily abusive; however, it seems as though there is some sort of strain. Perhaps, Brently keeps Louise tied down or he thinks of her a stereotypical woman. Everyone seems to believe that Louise is too fragile because of her hear. Because Louise has heart trouble, her sister, Josephine, has to break the news to her that Brently has seemed to have died from a railroad accident. Either way, Louise knows that she should be upset.
They also both contributed to the short lived contentment of Romeo and Juliet. They tried to give the lovers advice that would create a long lasting marriage that would eventually bring peace between the Montagues and Capulets; however, things began to fall apart. The marriage being hidden from both families also made things even more complicated and difficult to manage. Friar Laurence and the Nurse genuinely cared about the young couple and were convinced they could make the undercover marriage work; however, they are both to be blamed for the sudden deaths of the two star crossed lovers, because certain things could have been handled differently. Whether all of the decisions made by the two mentors we're “right” is debatable, but they wanted the absolute best for Romeo and
While Mr Brocklehurst judges Jane for no reason, Miss Temple defends her and she is the only one who wants to learn the truth about Jane’s actions before judging her. Mrs Fairfax is the one who welcomes Jane to Thornfield. Mrs Fairfax introduces Jane to her new job and supports her through her stay at Thornfield, and it is important to mention that Jane values her opinion: “Mrs Fairfax, I saw, approved me: her anxiety on my account vanished; therefore I was certain I did well” (Bronte
