He goes as far as to buy a house across the bay just so she would notice him. He also seems to not care that she is still married to Tom, and gets frustrated when she doesn 't comply with his request for her to ditch him. Nick on the other hand has a strong attraction for Jordan Baker. Both of them are on the same social status but, Jordan cannot make her own decisions and is controlled financially by her Aunt. Nick seems to altogether disregard her passion of cheating lying and being uninterested in other people and gets disappointed when she could care less about Myrtle 's death.
This is not true because Conrad is raising some gender biases by portraying women as an inferior character and minor character. He rarely mentions any woman character in his novel, however the role given to them is insignificant. For example, in this novel Marlow’s aunt is referred to as a caricature. Especially when Marlow says, “They live in the world of their own, and there had never been anything like it, and never can be” (Conrad, 2015, p.22).It shows us Conrad’s strong believe in women’s inferiority. The words such as “world of their own”, is more like women’s lack of contribution towards practical world and women lost in their fantasy.
Mildred does not think of her relationship as being anything worth remembering; She doesn’t care about it. The only thing she cares about is how this relationship brings her more material objects. (SIP-B) Mildred’s friends also show this lack of compassion, through how they treat their children as well as each other. (STEWE-1) When
It’s all [she’s] left with” (Atwood 294). She is so desperate by this point because failing to stand up to her beliefs has left with no other option. She depended on her friend Moira to fix everything, but since Moira has stopped fighting, they are now both in less than ideal situations. By making her internal beliefs clear and then depicting her conforming to and participating in the society that she so strongly opposed, Atwood demonstrates Offred taking actions that contradict her beliefs because she is afraid to directly defy the society. Consequently, Atwood shows the negative impacts of not protesting when Offred is taken by the van.
I would say it is because of the way she sees the relationship. She states that the relationship will not last long (p.1 l.12) which could lead to her indifference about the relationship. We can also tell that she does not feel that he is always there for her, for example, “Whenever she got very sad, which happened sometimes, Jon acted as if leaving her alone was the best thing.” (p.4 l.139-140). We can also tell from the way the sentence is structured how she does not like the fact that he leaves her alone. “Jon acted as if..” the word acted can also be used in a negative sense, which makes the most sense in the context.
Hulga fits all of those categories in a way, she had a limp because she did not have a leg, she was not physically ugly, but the way she thought of herself was, and she was undesirable because she did not take care of herself properly. “One of her major triumphs was that her mother had not been able to turn her dust into Joy…” (O 'Connor 484), this could mean that with name decision Hulga had made her mother could not turn it into something positive, because once something is dust you can not turn it back into its original form. Hulga’s name change symbolized that she was not the same girl she once was or she would be. In addition, the author inserts Vulcans name to compare him to Hulga’s
However, her mother genuinely disproves of her philosophical beliefs (implied). Mrs. Hopewell 's will to see good in everyone, and to essentially identify others as 'good country people ' is a beneficial factor in Hulga 's name change. Hulga does not necessarily understand, or care for the identification of who is considered a 'good country [person] ' or not because she believes that people are merely people. 2) Mrs. Freeman 's flaw is that she can never admit when she is wrong. This is very similar to Joy/Hulga 's flaw, which is her failure to realize beauty in the world.
Her father was not so bad” (20). The passive tense creates an unsure tone, which shows her ignorance because she is so innocent she tries to convince herself against actuality. She continually tries to convince herself life with her father is manageable, but it is not. Eveline works so much, but has to deal with paternal and financial issues because her father says, “she used to squander the money, that she had no head, that he wasn’t going to give her his hard-earned money to throw about the streets” (21) which “had begun to weary her unspeakably” (20). She does not accept her life at home is sad, even if she has to deal with chaos which she cannot even describe.
Peace and Happiness, these two words are so simple, yet in this world we live in today, it is so hard to attain. Probably because, it is something that cannot be bought with money, and money is what people care about these days, it is like the most important thing in the world now. No one knows where peace and happiness can be found, simply because they keep on looking for them so hard in different places, little did they know it can actually only be found within them, but once they find out where it is, their next problem would be how to get it, and that is the most difficult part. It might take them a year, a decade, no one exactly knows, but if you truly want to attain it, then you can try doing the following. “Happiness is a choice, not a result.
Connie’s relationship with her mother is not one she particularly values. Connie is a pretty girl, and “her mother had been pretty once too”, but she is not so much anymore and almost anything Connie does aggravates her (Oates 369). This rigid relationship pushes Connie further away the older she gets. Everything about Connie has “two sides to it,” her shirt “would look one way at home and one way when she was away from home”, she was not fully herself anywhere she went (370). This act shows the way Connie lacks a sense of self.
