I agree with Zizek and I believe it is not fair to say that this is a natural thing for birds. In this case, birds serve as another dimension that literally tears apart reality. The attack of birds is to prevent or trying to prevent a sexual relationship. Another example is when the mother goes to the neighbor’s house and finds him dead and his eyes where eaten by birds and she also sees the birds on the window. She tried to shout but she couldn’t; her voice was
Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters find several items that were “women things”, such as an unfinished quilt and a bird in a box with its neck snapped. These items are key symbols, not only to the play, but to the motive of the murder. Mrs. Wright never revealed that her husband had done cruel things to her, but her husband was known to be harsh at times. Mrs. Hale brings up how Mrs. Wright lived before she married, “I heard she used to wear pretty clothes and be lively, when she was Minnie Foster, one of the town girls singing in the choir. But that-oh, that was thirty years ago.” (Glaspell) After marrying to John, Minnie did not have a multitude of freedoms as before.
She is bad to the bone, and the only thing she cares about is her family. One way Nagaina stands up for what is right is when most of her family dies, she risks revenge to save the one egg. Nagaina says, “When there were no people in the bungalow, did we have any mongoose in the garden? So long as the bungalow is empty we are king and queen of the garden; and remember that as soon as our eggs in the melon bed hatch (as they may tomorrow), our children will need room and quiet,” this demonstrates how much she wants her family to be happy and have a place to grow. Another way Nagaina stood up for what was right was by saying “Give me the egg, Rikki-Tikki.
Don't blame me when he gouges your eyes out. "(pg.17) Is what Jem thinks of Boo Radley a mysterious, and isolative person who hides from everyone inside the walls of his house.Boo Radley is another character who shows courage throughout the story To Kill a Mockingbird. Such as when he saved Scout and Jem from Bob Ewell killing them. He took on a knife-wielding man when instead he could have remained behind the walls of his house, and for a person who is always hiding, it takes a lot of
Power to the Women in Susan Glaspell’s “Trifles” Susan Glaspell’s “Trifles” is an unsolved investigation that lead the readers to construe the clues for the death of Mr. Wright. His wife, Mrs. Minnie Wright, is the only suspect in the play and is therefore taken into custody due to the disbelief of her not waking up when Mr. Wright was gruesomely tortured. An exploration of the play reveals the women’s and men’s actions during the investigation. Along the lines of the play, the women are ridiculed and stereotyped while gathering the belongings of Minnie. With common humanity as reasoning for the women to knowingly conduct their own investigation, they stumble upon evidence that is valuable to the men’s investigation.
“We are spirit soul, we have been encaged within this body, so our natural aspiration is to get freedom from this encagement. As much as the bird is struggling to get freedom from the cage.”-Bhagavad-Gita 2.25. In Susan Glaspell’s “Trifles,” the bird (Canary) symbolizes Mrs. Wright, or how she used to be known as Minnie Foster and the birdcage represents her and Mr. Wright’s marriage. “Trifles” is about Mr. Wright’s mysterious death in his own home, and the only suspect in his murder is his wife, Mrs. Wright. The Court Attorney, and some other males from the town, is investing the case to see if they could find any clues and motive in the case.
However, the same birds are soon used to foreshadow the boy’s death. His mother calls him a“[p]oor bird! [who’d] never fear the net nor lime” (4.2.34). The mother says the boy does not fear things he should, using the motif of birds to both warn the boy and create a sense of foreboding. In that way, the birds warn that peace is destined to be broken.
First of all, the power that close family holds creates fear inside of Rosina when she thinks her father is lying to her. When Thomas Wentworth, Rosina’s father, calls her to his office, he tells her “”Your sister is dead, as she deserved. There will be no mourning, and no further mention of her. You may go.” His look said, as clearly as if he spoken, “Disobey me, and the same may happen to you.”...the next thing I knew, I was back in my room, possessed by a dreadful suspicion that he had caused her death.” (Harwood 117). The power and control over Rosina and her actions is portrayed by her father.
In “A Jury of Her Peers” by Susan Glaspell, the sheriff, Mr. Peters, is struggling to find a motive for Mr. Wright’s murder case due to his sexist views. However, Mrs. Hale and Mrs. Peters, the sheriff’s wife, are able to find significant clues that lead to Mrs. Wright’s motive because they relate to her living conditions. Although Mrs. Wright claims to have been asleep during her husband’s murder, the women conclude she strangled her husband, Mr. Wright, as evidenced by the slaughtered canary, the broken bird cage, and the errant quilt patch. The slaughtered canary wrapped in silk is a significant clue, which leads to Mrs. Wright’s motive. When the women unwrap the bird, Mrs. Peters notices that “somebody wrung its neck.” It does not make sense for Mrs. Wright to kill her own bird because it was the only thing that brought light into her life.
Mob justice is mentioned in Of Mice and Men in an exchange between Curley’s wife and Crooks. She tells him that she could have him lynched whenever she wanted. As well was when Curley found his wife dead, it was determined by Curley and the other migrant workers, that the misfit has killed the woman, there is no thought of legal justice to kill Lennie. The isolation and size of the ranches allowed frontier justice to prevail and influence many that thought otherwise. Not only were there mass amounts of vigilante justice, the historical events of women’s role in society were displayed throughout the
