He refers to her as “this woman” when he describes how she “rushed out at [them];” his attitude towards this person he just ran over was less than of her being a human being and more like she was some stray animal destined to be roadkill. Between these three characters, they are all part of a web that was the vision of women in the 1920s. In a particularly powerful interaction between Daisy, the typical, submissive, beautiful woman; and Jordan, the accomplished, defiant and trouble seeking woman; we see these two personas mingle on an extremely hot summer day. Daisy is whining and crying about how she sees no future in the unbelievable heat, showing her strong tendency for overreaction and her inability to see beyond now.

Rose wants readers to think of Fern as her sister and not just as a chimpanzee (Fowler 77), so she tells her story by starting in the middle of it rather than from the beginning. Fowler’s technique of organizing the events in her novel in an unchronological order helps readers to understand exactly who Rosemary is and how she overcomes the challenges in her life and learns to accept herself. As a result of being raised with a chimpanzee for the first five years of her life, Rosemary is very different from her peers. Young children tend to imitate
Later into the novel, however, Daisy’s attitudes towards actions start to unfold. As specified by Fitzgerald, Daisy’s “face was sad and lovely with bright things in it, bright eyes and a bright passionate mouth, but there was an excitement in her voice that men who had cared for her found difficult to forget” (Fitzgerald 9). Certainly, the readers can deem favorable characteristics from Daisy; she has the impression of being a lovable and
Hawthorne uses symbolism throughout the Scarlet letter to display the sin and indecency people see Hester as. The detail represents ,the deep beauty Hester has inside although most people do not see her as a beutiful women.
