This idea of female freedom, however, is not embraced by the male characters, who feel it threatens their masculinity: “It was they who were embarrassing us” (4). When Lengel, the “kingpin” of the A&P takes notice of the girls’ actions, he quickly steps up to protect his masculinity. In removing the girls from the A&P, he is attempting to put them back in their established place. As one critic noted, the male characters feel that “Either women were to stay in one place and allow themselves to be walked on as ‘houseslaves’ or mothers or they were to provide their sexual services when men so desired” (Douglass). The male characters expect
In Toni Morrison’s Song of Solomon, young Macon Dead the 3rd, also known as Milkman, is continuously “flying” away from his problems. With his father, Macon Dead Jr., being a man of money and greed and his mother Ruth Foster Dead being a subdued and quiet woman of a higher class, Milkman has a clear advantage than most people of color. His father and his self never truly felt connected to each other which brought conflict, and it was perceived that he didn’t respect women. At a young age his small actions were early stages of him disrespecting women, especially to his mother and sisters. As the book progresses he finds himself in the flights of people around him, and even his own.
character which you are reading, an example of this is the protagonist of “Gatsby”, Nick Caraway. Another technique of point of view that Fitzgerald uses is what is now known as “double vision”. Double Vision is “the discernment of events both as an outsider and as an insider”. One great example of this is Nick Caraway from Gatsby, he not only takes part in but also explains the novel, and he also calls himself and “entangled and then later a “watcher”. His stories also seems to convey a sort of gentleness but without any softness to it, they evoked mood, and were impressionistic, which has made his works stand the test of time.
The otherwise vague distinction between Walter Cunningham and Burris Ewell in To Kill a- Mockingbird becomes increasingly more transparent overtime as the reader begins to “read between the lines” and comprehend the actions and descriptions of both characters. Harper Lee’s way of contrasting the difference between both characters (Walter and Burris) is initially vague because the reader would usually tend to “clamp” on the fact that both are poor and relatively uneducated, though to different extents. However, the idea of this essay is to prove the alternative notion by which both characters, although similar at first glance, are entirely different through their own psychological behaviors, history, and what the foundation of their own habitual actions are (e.g. farm life, a contentious father, etc.) Concepts of medical research will be implemented to provide a source of documentation and resourcefulness to further emphasize the contrast
The author does a good job of creating a plot where a background storyline of what is happening is present to further develop the story. Overall however, the story comes across as positive from the 3rd person view of a narrator, and the backstory doesn’t overshadow the main events which keeps the reader wanting to read more. The author, Josephina Niggli, may have developed this story because of her personal connections to the feelings or events in the story. A long ago party that left her wondering if she should pursue a so-called “Bad Boy” may have caused her to transform these personal memories into a more entertaining fashion. The character Sarita could easily be a representation of Josephina herself meaning that this story would be one built on facts and emotions that should have came easy for the author to transform into a compelling tale of mysterious and romantic relations with an unknown man.
Throughout the novel, Gatsby is regarded as a self-made gentleman who doesn’t drink at his own parties due to his morals. However in this passage, through the descriptions and reflections of Nick the reader discovers how Daisy’s love had corrupted his morals. Before coming to the East, Gatsby’s aspiration was to achieve the American Dream but in this passage we discover the fact after his love with Daisy, all he ever wanted was to win Daisy as if she was an award of excellence. He keeps trying blindly as “he did not know that is was already behind him, somewhere in that vast obscurity beyond the city”. This quote supports the claim as Gatsby is being ignorant to the truth as he is not willing comprehend the fact that he could not accomplish his only goal in life.

In this article, the young woman discriminated against Staples because of what he was wearing and how he looked.

For example, he states, “I had never spoken to her, except for a few casual words, and yet her name was like a summons to all my foolish blood” (187). In other words the narrator has never talked to Mangan’s sister and therefore does not even know her name (187). Since he does not know the girls name it shows her insignificance and how the narrator actually likes the idea of Mangan’s sister but not her as a person. In reality, it is not usual to become infatuated with someone you do not know, and the fact that he is somewhat “in love” with a girl he does not know shows he is naïve. The narrator decides to go to the bazaar and contemplates on what to buy Mangan’s sister.
