This shows her level of intelligence was high. Not only is she one of the smartest, but she also showed dedication to her education. Like Angelou, Pruitt-Martin also showed that she was intelligent. As Nikole Hannah Jones described, Pruitt-Martin “[was] a star student” (“The Problem”). This means that Pruitt-Martin was a high achieving, intelligent student.
It is safe to say that the both of them were made mad by lovesickness, based on the way they acted. Crying about and lamenting their fates, sobbing helplessly. After the nurse and Friar Lawrence arranged a meeting the both of them reach a somewhat clearer state of mind, getting better to the point that they can both continue their love-talk. Romeo eventually has to leave, as dawn breaks and Juliet’s mother comes looking for her. At this point, Juliet still hasn’t told her mother that she loves Romeo, leave alone that she actually married him already.
Denver therefore bears the brunt of Sethe’s communal alienation. Only an infant when her sister is killed by her mother, Denver is sheltered from reality. Never having endured the life of a slave, Denver undergoes a secondary oppression at the hands of the matriarchal characters in her family. Denver’s forced isolation leads to a naïveté that has troubling consequences on the development of her own individuality: having been made a pariah by a community yet only learning the reason for her alienation at a later age leads to Denver’s inability to cope with reality and her subsequent withdrawal into the safety of isolation. Despite representing Sethe’s life after slavery, Sethe’s inability to both forgive and release herself from her guilt sees her desperate attempts to veil it with a love for Denver that Paul D claims is “too thick” (Morrison, 2007: 203).
The two kids never did anything against their mother, but she holds are grudge that stands firm while she drowns. In an essay, Suzanne Green describes Edna's state of mind at the end of the novel as, "incensed that her husband and children presumed that they could “drag her into the soul's slavery for the rest of her days."". (Green) Green writes that Edna is "incensed" with her children, and quotes that Edna believed the kids were holding her soul as a slave. Edna was doomed to unhappiness from the beginning of her children's lives because of these thoughts. She holds an intense anger for the children and is convinced that they were keeping her in bondage and wasting her life.
Every Time she would appear in the novel she would always say something like ¨Why can't i talk to you? I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely¨ ( Steinbeck 86). Also, when she was talking to lennie before he had murdered her, she was telling him how she doesnt like curley at all and how she thinks he's a mean guy. Once again another character that just wanted someone new to talk to.
Throughout her life span irrational decisions strained her path to Hollywood fame. Curley’s wife was vulnerable due to the strict guidelines set in place by her mother. These guidelines caused Curley's wife to make the sporadic decision to marry him and escape her mother's discouragement, “I always thought my ol' lady stole it. Well, I wasn't gonna stay no place where I couldn't get nowhere or make something of myself, an' where they stole your letters, I ast her if she stole it, too, an' she says no. So I married Curley.”(Curley's wife 88).
You have lost all hope. You feel like there is no way you are getting back up, and you wish you didn’t have to suffer anymore. Would you get up and try again or accept your fate? For Katniss in the dystopian novel The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins, she had lost everything, but got back up every time to keep her family safe. For Tris in the dystopian novel Insurgent by Veronica Roth, she gave up entirely and wished she was dead, but in both of these stories, the authors used the mood of the reader and the protagonists’ actions to show that you shouldn’t let negative emotions control you.
