Some of Edna’s most obvious decisions immediately question her weakness to handle pressure. Edna’s inability to show compassion and care for her children challenge this normalcy for a mother of the time period; Edna considered her children “like antagonists who had overcome her; who had overpowered and sought to drag her into the soul's slavery for the rest of her days” (Chopin 115). The children almost seemed like a burden, or a detriment to her. Edna’s doctor visit nearly foreshadows this mindset, where the doctor notes that
She drinks and lie’s because of her past, with her consciously knowing that she is responsible for the death of allan, and also being responsible for being fired as a teacher; she has to find a way to cope with everything going on in her head. Blanche’s way of coping is lying, her lying becomes part of her reality. “Blanches part in her husband 's death is neither gentile nor loving.” (Phillip 305) She Feels guilty for her actions, but there is little remorse shown from blanche.
It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223)
Foreshadowing shows the existence of betrayal by Laura. Besides this, her behavior with betrayal is shown before the story. Katherine Anne Porter explains to the reader how Braggioni, the suitor, brought out Laura’s betrayal act. Told in “Flowering Judas,”But she cannot help feeling that she has been betrayed irreparably by the disunion between her way of living and her feeling of what life should be, and at times she is almost contented to rest in this sense of grievance as a private store of consolation.” (Porter 311).
However, her perseverance only extends to her plans for death. She furthers this by describing her "whorish heart". Her usage of "whorish" signifies frequent thoughts of death as a desirable outcome, though she still views it as an imperfect solution. Due to its substantial negative connotation, “whorish” also implies infidelity and irrational thought. Accordingly, the woman’s heart is the site of all her emotions, and holds great anguish due to being “ripped out” when the boy was born.
Reading The Great Gatsby has opened my eyes to see the truth behind people’s actions and how to see the characters beyond the page. Not only do we see Daisy transform from a cynical, depressed wife, to a life-loving women, we also see that your happiness can not depend on who you are around but it does affect your thoughts, words, and deeds. We learn throughout the novel that Daisy is a conniving, deceitful, cowardly woman afraid of her own shadow, but we also learn that she doesn’t know how to be anything else because of the way she was raised. Daisy incapability of learning to let go and be who she wants to be, is the reason why Gatsby, the man she loves, and Wilson, the husband of Myrtle, die. In the novel, Daisy is the villain, she takes people’s lives, turns them upside down, blames it on someone else, and walks away unharmed and unscathed.
The decision of Romeo and Juliet reflect much the same as me and my sister. My younger sister asked for my opinion on her art, and being in an upset mood at the time. I told her its was horrible, which lead her to throw it out and believe that she cannot not draw. Leaving me with guilt and disgust of how i made her believe her amazing art was horrible. Together these facts validate that impulsive decision can lead to the harm of others and themselves.
She describes the emotions that she felt by comparing herself to Boo Radley from To Kill a Mockingbird (Stockett 414). This comparison is likely to be made because people are afraid of what is unknown, so they create false stories or spread comments of hate thus adding to the ignorance which is being passed down as if it were a family tradition. Eugenia had also been avoiding these people as though she was frightened by their way of rejecting people and being unaccepting to change. Eugenia uses this hatred as motivation and perseveres through meeting with the help and working on her book. The only way the lives of others will change for the better is if Eugenia seeks self-improvement and others follow in her footsteps of
