“Instead she rummaged in her purse. In her hand appeared two bills”(Heker page 5). Rosaura thought her mom was being unfair, but she was just trying to protect her from getting hurt by receiving money. Rosaura being a mexican and in a lower class than them was a part of why she did not fit in, but she now has a way of making money. Rosaura tried to fit in with all the other girls, but no matter how hard she tried they still saw her as the maid’s daughter.
Eva Smith is the most important character in ‘An Inspector Calls’ in my opinion. She is used as a tool by Priestley, to show us how the capitalists treat others and how they don’t care about others and how they think they have power over others in the low working class. “if they didn 't get rid of that girl, I 'd never go near the place again” Sheila Birling sacked Eva Smith form her second job because she was ‘laughing at her’ this is showing us that the upper class do whatever they want because of their wealth, class and privileges. Even though Eva Smith was never on the stage play; she is still important because a working class woman like her cant do anything to the upperclass families; yet she made the Birling family (an upperclass family) feel bad and guilty about their actions and take responsibility for corrupting her life. Eva Smith is the perfect example to show the audience that you might not be affected by this but someone might be and you will be the blame for it.
Her views shift for the better throughout the novel. By the end, she feels lovingly at home with the Boatwrights and persuades T. Ray to let her stay with them. This benefited Lily in particular since she received the motherly love she’d been longing for, supporting that differing views are helpful when trying to learn about others. Additionally, as the grandfather clock in The Masque of the Red Death strikes, marking each hour closer to the guests’ demise, a wave of uneasiness passes over them as they become more and more mindful of their end. But during those few hours, they expressed their freedom through grotesque costumes (Poe, 1842).
At the end of the dinner Amy's father burped loudly as it is a sign of respect towards the cook showing gratitude for the food. After everyone had left, Amy’s mother noticed her embarrassment all night and said “You want to be the same as American girls on the outside.” She the handed Amy an early gift, It was a beige tweed colored mini skirt. After she told Amy that she must always be Chinese on the inside and to be proud of who she was, because the only shame is to be ashamed. It took Amy years to truly figure out what her mother was trying to teach her, and after she figured it out she was proud of her ethnicity.
Curley’s wife aspires to be more than a domestic housewife and claims that she “Coulda been in the movies, an’ had nice clothes”(89). She expresses her disappointment from her lack of control in her life. Similar to Crooks, she is the only woman on the ranch, so she too is treated as a minority. The men describe her as a “tart”(28), because she is very flirtatious due to Curley's neglection. She is trapped in a loveless marriage and states, “I don’t like Curley.
While the prostitutes may look like Pecola, they do not think like her. Pecola’s family “wore their ugliness, put it on, so to speak, although it did not belong to them” (38). Her whole family falls victim to the mask of ugliness placed upon them by their economic status and race. Her parents accept their ugliness and teach it to Pecola, who accepts her ugliness without question. Pecola “hid behind hers.
So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
When I told her the price she said, “That’s a little out of our price range. I’m not sure if we’ll be able to afford that.” The purse was only two hundred dollars, and that was cheap for a Michael Kors purse, but I still knew she couldn’t afford it. I was a little disappointed, but I brushed it off like it was no big deal, until a few days later, when my sister called me asking me if I would go shoe shopping with her. I told her yes because I love shopping.
A few summers ago some of my cousins, aunts, and uncles went on a road trip. We traveled to California, Nevada, Arizona, and Colorado in the span a month. While all these states are in the same country, they all have different social norms. When we went to most places people new almost right away we were from the south. One lady told us she knew we were from the south, because of the jewelry we were wearing.
