Although she has to keep this joy private, she tries her best to hide this contentment, Her resistance to her true feelings show how forbidden her emotions are and that society would never accept Louise’s true emotions. Another theme that is present is the theme of freedom. At first, she does not have much freedom at all and throughout the duration of they story she is confined in her home. Her newfound freedom gave her much joy but as she left her room, it was cut much too short due to her untimely death. The Story of an Hour has many structural, stylistic, and literary approaches that make it a very powerful
She viewed Laila as her own daughter, and she wasn’t going to let anyone hurt her daughter. She knew how much of an abomination killing her husband would be to society, but she loved Laila enough to risk the punishment. Instead of running away from Kabul with Laila, Mariam stayed behind so that Laila would never get in trouble for killing Rasheed. She was then arrested and later shot for murder (371). Mariam sacrificed her own life so that Laila could marry Tariq and live happily and freely with her family.
Cecilia neglects the fact that she suffers from this, but throughout the book, it’s very obvious that she suffers from some minor effects of OCD. “Normally I can’t leave the house unless everything is perfect. I know I’m ridiculous.” Page 203. This quote is significant because it shows how much she suffers from OCD and the fact that she laughs it off by saying she’s ridiculous, seems as if she’s denying the fact that she suffers from any disorder. Her OCD also relates to how she lives her life because reading the book, some parts showed that she tried to maintain the ‘perfect’ personality such as in areas like her daughter’s school by being a leader for the parent teacher meetings and organizing everything by
This theme is subtly shown throughout the story, but becomes more apparent after the main event, the slaughter. After Date Bed is presumed missing, Mud, despite the fact that she is not of She-S blood, shows concern for her friend and adopted family member throughout the story – “It is just as well that Mud’s thoughts can’t be heard because what she is thinking is, “I’m the one who loves her. None of you loves her as I do,” and the uselessness of her love arouses her to such a pitch of anguish that she thinks of returning to the plain and searching for Date Bed on her own” (Gowdy, 105). The other She-S’s feel the same way as well – She-Snorts states, “I would not go to The Safe Place…knowing that Date Bed might still be alive and lost” (Gowdy, 249). If the She-S’s didn’t care for their family as much, they would have abandoned all thought of Date Bed and wouldn’t bother searching for her.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.

Antoinette had never hit Marie nor Charlotte before, so at this point in the book, it was very heartbreaking knowing that Antoinette is so blinded by Emile that she would turn against her own family in order to defend him. Marie tried her best to change Antoinette's mind but with no luck until she would discover his guilt on her own accord. When Antoinette does have the realization that Emile was guilty, she knew that she needed to reconcile her relationship with Marie and apologize. She rekindled with her sister as well as bringing balance to their lives once more. The power of their love may have been harsh but it had brought them together and remained as so for the many years to
In conclusion, the novel “Their Eyes Were Watching God” presents the theme of love and that being in a relationship hinders independence but in an unique way. Hurston uses symbolism like Janie’s head rag which stifled her independence and when burned, made her feel free. She also uses the motif of communities, which are ever present throughout the book, using specific examples such as when Janie isn't allowed to go to the funeral, which hinders her independence because she isn't making choices for herself and isn't doing
That it was me, Ida, who had to leave in shame. That it was me, Ida, who came back here alone with a baby the image of my father. That it was me, Ida, who’s raised her every day”(Dorris, 336). Ida who is Christine’s sister wanted the best for her which is why she faked legal papers to solve the conundrum of Clara selling Christine to a rich family. Family relationships are shown here because she tried to protect her.
Also, this book didn’t really have any action, obviously because the book was historical fiction. And honestly I wouldn’t really recommend this as a fun read unless someone had to read a historical fiction book. 3. Describe your reading experience. Was it a fun read?
If people didn’t get bothered than they would be happy and not know what to expect, because if no one in the entire world got bothered they wouldn 't have the knowing of how to be an actual human. In the book Fahrenheit 451 I am pretty sure that all the characters got bothered so when something happened they were use to it and didn’t get that worked up over it. So when Millie left Montag he was sad but later found out that he did not want anything to do with her. Therefore if people do get bothered they will so figure out what they don 't need and why the thing that happened is a good thing, that no one can change. You just have to keep living you life and see things on the positive side.

Reading Lupe 's story, I was impressed by how she kept trying even after she was put down so many times. Not everyone can turn rejection into motivation, but Lupe kept going in hopes of making a better future for her family. Unfortunately, even today in this country non-English speakers/people who struggle with English are often seen as uneducated and less than. I 'd ask Lupe what advice she could give to people who, unlike her, feel they have no motivation to keep trying to succeed in a system that seems set up for them to
However, it’s a bit odd that he has known for years about her history; it’s challenging to believe this and has mentioned the purpose isn’t clear. Unfortunately, the villagers and the character of Masibi do not fully engage. One reason is because they don’t challenge Beth as a character. They all like her and follow her directions without questions. The dialogue or the dialect of the villagers also isn’t appealing, “Now ain’t you the handsome one,” and “You’re kinda cute, too, girl.” Overall, they add nothing exciting to the main
