She was sexual asssulted “(insert text evidence)”. She did not fit in and was an outcast because of being sexual assulted. But, she overcame her situation and realized that she cannot be tied down any longer. Some ways that she handled her conflict healthy was by telling the truth and telling Andy(Andy is the rapist)to stop. She also helped every girl that could have been affected by Andy.
This caused Medea to be vengeful and go out on a rampage. Not only did this hurt Jason, but it also hurt the Corinthian king,his daughter and many more. Medea felt justified in her homicidal acts because she had given up so much to be with Jason. Medea’s nurse explained how the main character abandoned her life for a man she believed she loved, “Sometimes she turns to look away, to call out for her father, her country and home: all abandoned and betrayed for a man who now abandons her, betrays her honor and her love. She has learned the hard way what it is to be an exile to had given up everything” ( lines 29-36.)
The communication in fact escalated the conflict as Judith left and faced consequences as explained earlier. The other conflict I will be discussing is the internal conflict or the correct term being the intrapersonal conflict that Judith had with herself. This happened after she left her husband and went with Harley and got contracted with HIV. This conflict reached the stalemate/ hurting period and stayed there because she regretted what she did and it was evident that the conflict stayed at that period because years after she was still telling the story thus regretting the actions she took having to suffer such harsh consequences. This conflict with herself was resolved well because I felt she accepted her mistake and some conflicts are meant to stay at the hurting period as I learnt and I am seeing that evident here.
The Bulgar captain decides her fate for her by taking her as a prisoner of the war; he thought her “pretty as well as useful” (41). However, after he had run out of money and “had grown tired of [her] he sold [her] to Don Issachar” (41). Men who lived during the 18th century were clearly able to do as they please with women without a care for their feelings. Voltaire brings this issue up an abounding number of times in order to raise awareness to those living in his time period about the oppression of women. He attempts to make the public realize that the popular saying, “women are to be seen and not heard,” is not acceptable because women do have feelings and thoughts that get trapped in the 18th century
Nyasha is a passionate person and since it is self-evident to her that she should be able to have a fun night out with her friends, rebellion against a surely unjust punishment comes natural to her. Her emotional, provocative and passionate side comes alive every time she feels persecuted by society’s norms or her culture’s patriarchal views. Another example of Nyasha rebelling against her life situation is when she is arguing with Maiguru, her mother, over a seemingly inappropriate book that her mother stole from her. Babamukuru orders Nyasha to sit down, to stop talking back to her mother and to eat up but “instead of sitting down she walked out of the dining-room.”(85). Nyasha is a strong-headed person and she does not tolerate someone taking away her rights.
She was shocked by the news and showed sad feelings in the story. However, when I was reading through the story, I could infer that Mallard had a terrible marriage life with her husband because the story later said that Mallard was happy because she had freedom. In the beginning of the story, she was shocked and sad but later on, she was happy because of in dependence. These evidences prove that she is a dynamic character. Round character in the story definitely would be Louise Mallard because she is fully developed and has a lot of emotions throughout the story.
In “Pretty Hurts” sang by Beyonce, the speaker was taught from a young age to care about appearances. Throughout the story the speaker struggles with herself, and she thinks she is not good enough. In the end she comes to realization, and shes says she is finally happy with herself. Between these two sources, the theme; ‘Everybody needs to learn that you are beautiful in your own way, and don’t need to live up to beauty standards’ is shown between the dynamic character of the speaker in “Pretty Hurts” and the motif/symbol of the two Barbies in “Barbie”. The themes of these sources are practically the same and revolve around the base idea of ‘beauty standards not defining us, and you are beautiful in your own way.
''At that age, if one’s name is changed, one develops a curious form of dual personality'' (Rau, 1951). Dumas and Rau both had to cope with a dual life; Dumas lived a hard life growing up because of her name while Rau faced racism because of her race (Indian). People couldn't pronounce or remember Dumas' name and sometimes they made fun of her by calling her funny/offensive names that's when she decided she had enough of this and took the decision in changing her name to Julie because it sounded American and was easier for everyone to remember and pronounce. At first she was enjoying being Julie and having everyone say Hi to her, talking to her with no difficulties in remembering her name, and having lots of friends but then they started talking bad about her people, iranians, infront if her because they thought she was American. When Dumas started going to college she went back to using her original but then she gradauted and started looking fo jobs unfortunately no one hired her because of her foreign name so she went back to naming herself Julie.
