A lesson before dying teaches a valuable lesson of becoming a man and although Jefferson does learn a lesson,Grant learns the better lesson due to the characterization that is portrayed. Grant Wiggins is a educated and sophisticated young man. He speaks very educated in terms of speaking and thinking but is very arrogant. Grant is also very selfish for example when the Reverend says “ You ever think of anybody but yourself?” Every time he visited Jefferson he came out less and less selfish and arrogant. Grant learned his lesson ultimately expressed by characterization in The lesson before dying.
To begin, masculinity is a central trait through which men try to compensate for their race and class subordination. Men use masculinity in an attempt to acquire social status and avoid being subordinated. However, among delinquent boys, masculinity is formed through negative encounters with probation officer, the police, juvenile hall, and school discipline. On the other hand, masculinities are also shaped positively by authority figures in the appropriate circumstances. Manhood is also accomplished through the subordination of women and through culture.
Compared to other and most men in the small community Jefferson is more of a man than most of them because of his ability to face his fears and not be afraid. Compared to men like Grant, Jefferson seems like a better and bigger man but to them he isn't just a bigger man but a hero. He helped him realize that in order to become a man you must face your fears and do what you want regardless of fears, and sacrifice personal pleasure for the happiness and pleasure of
Clearly there are certain expectations for men and boys grounded in masculine expectations that sort of dictate how we are supposed to act. For instance it is considered a man’s responsibility to ask a woman out and be the forerunner when it comes to being romantic. In such a scenario it is the man who has to deal with rejection and embarrassment. But of course that is just a part of being this gentleman society expects you to be. However we do feel the same emotions as women and this expectation just heaps on the pressure.
While on the one hand society applauds the man who marries, has children, and provides them with a good home and everything they might desire, on the other hand, society also displays a tremendous respect towards figures who represent none of these reliable qualities” (142). The American male is undoubtedly met with a number of expectations and may be argued to be under a “double pressure”; he is expected to successfully manage his roles in both the public and the private arenas. Not surprisingly, the public and the private role are at times in conflict with each other; more importantly, it appears that the private role as husband-father is premised on the role that man holds in the public sphere, where he is after all an independent, self-sufficient kind of a man. Hence, the famous remark made by Dodge in Shepard’s 1979 play Buried Child, “You think just because people propagate they have to love their offspring? You never seen a bitch eat her

Lord Chesterfield’s letter to his son goes far beyond what is typically expected of a parent addressing a child. The good natured advice is therefore trampled by the presumption that Chesterfield’s son simply will not live up to his potential despite the advantages he has been given through education and status. Chesterfield imposes his own morals and values by toying with the guilt of privilege, contradicting himself and making a mockery of failure, consequently, presenting his advice as the only acceptable recourse. The first paragraph is underlined by the use of irony, however the high level of writing and expertise prevents this from overwhelming the reader. Originally Chesterfield downgrades his own advice by addressing the common
Men’s Real Emotions Gender is a large part of everyone’s identify that is often defined by psychological differences between people and people like men and women. therefore, those differences are reflected in many gender stereotypes, for example, boys often like blue color and are very strong, and men rarely share their feelings, while girls usually like pink color and are very weak, and women are more emotional. From the earliest age, the boys are told “Be a man,” “Don’t cry,” or “Man up.” Those are messages that boys still get from their coaches and often from their fathers, and these words are coded to the qualities of the typical men. The film The Mask You Live In is a documentary that affects the viewers deeply. In the movie, experts, teachers, and men together with young boys, teenagers, and men who discuss their own experience with both positive and negative.
One of the greatest aspects to how a male is taught to conduct himself is through his personality. Planned Parenthood explains the basic structure that can trap some males through hypermasculinity, “They believe they’re supposed to compete with other men and dominate feminine folks by being aggressive, worldly, sexually experienced, insensitive, physically imposing, ambitious, and demanding”(Planned Parenthood). With more detail, when men are shifted towards this exaggerated way there are many more problems beyond not being themselves. When hypermasculinity takes places there is an increased chance of abuse emotionally and physically towards a women. On the other hand men have a one in six chance of being sexually abused themselves.
