In this step, the murder is doing something to the body so that when they see it, they remember the murder. In remembrance of the murderers "feeling of power and control," they may use body parts "as mementos and souvenirs"(Dolan 54). To add, the murderer may have the victim "buried in isolated spots to which the killer might return"(Dolan 55). Clearly, after the murder, the murderer will want to remember the killing of their victim and they remember with what they do with the victims remains. Similarly, in "The Landlady" the lady remembered her victims in the same ways as talked about in Serial Murder.
The suspect, their own daughter, Lizzie Borden. For the duration of her trial Lizzie Borden was seen as a bane, a murderer, and would be treated like one for the rest of her life. Sarah Miller recognized the wrong in this and aspired to give Lizzie another chance to clear her name by giving nothing but the facts about the case since, during her trial, evidence was left out or overlooked. In her book “The Borden Murders: Lizzie Borden and the
Holden loves his sister very much and has never said that she was a phony. She always gave him some hope in the world and he was most likely hanging onto his life using that hope. On one hand, I agree that Holden would have used Phoebe as a reason to live. But, on the other hand, I still insist that what he was going through would have become too much for him to handle. After Holden found James Castle’s body when he committed suicide, Mr. Antolini warned Holden not to die nobly for an unworthy cause, but Holden might think otherwise.
In As I Lay Dying by William Faulkner, the conflicting attitudes Cora Tull and Addie Bundren hold towards language and action determine their views on motherhood, marriage, and religion and how they choose to live their lives accordingly. Cora welcomes her role as mother, believes her duty is to her husband, and relies on the intensity of her faith. On the other hand, Addie despises being a mother, thinks love is meaningless, and concludes religion is solely a matter of words. But Faulkner uses his characters to show that neither language nor action is stronger than the other or mutually exclusive. Cora: A Woman’s Duty is to Her Family Cora Tull fits the typical mold and expectations of a woman.
Hooper interacts with his plighted wife, Elizabeth. Elizabeth is the only one of the townspeople that is brave enough to ask Mr.Hooper about the reason behind wearing the veil. She had a simple request, "Lift the veil but once, and look me in the face (12)", but Mr. Hooper persisted it must never come off. She assumes that he has decided to wear the veil only because he is hiding some secret sin or crime. "Beloved and respected as you are, there may be whispers that you hide your face under the consciousness of secret sin.
With this phrase, she gives the idea that she does not care about any other love rather than her husbands and even makes us think that she loves her husband more than she loves God and that this love was distracting her from her commitment to him. Anne’s marriage should have been centered in worshiping God not only their love. She desires her husband so much that not even “rivers can quench” that thirst (Bradstreet, 7). Anne believes that God will pay her husband for his love towards her. She suggests that the big love she and her husband share is the pathway for eternal life.
Her need to have her father’s approval and her brother’s rejection based on gender alone only added emphasis to gender politics and the necessity to realize her dreams of education and independence. She overcame exclusion, rejection and discrimination in her own family, to acquire prestige and recognition with publishers and universities—the small aside of professional and financial accomplishments in the essay. Most of all, she came to accept herself and erase the pervasive gender polarization in her family to finally receive acceptance from her
Pilate grew up without much parental support, but the fact that this lack of meaningful relationships did not cause her “real misery” emphasizes just how much she cares about her daughters.The immeasurable love Pilate has for her daughter greatly contrasts the nearly invisible feelings Milkman has for his own close family, yet it would lead one to believe that she would at least gain something over Milkman for her selflessness. Indeed, this selflessness is brought up once again at the climax of the book as Pilate lays dying in Milkman’s arms, telling him to, “watch Reba for [her]”, then adding on, “I wish I’d a knowed more people. I would of loved ‘em all,” as if it was an afterthought (Morrison 336). Even as she lay dying, Pilate’s thoughts are elsewhere, concerning the welfare of her only remaining daughter, instead of acknowledging her own physical state. A majority of society would agree that these numerous acts of selflessness would justify a reward or salvation; yet in this case, Pilate simply
Mama wants her family to feel safe. It is for this reason that some may argue that Mama is still yearning to complete stage 2 of Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs. Mama is also in this stage because she adheres to what her husband used to say: “Seem like God didn’t see fit to give the black man nothing but dreams- but He did give us children to make them dreams seem worth while” (Hansberry 46). Though some members of her family are acclimated to white culture, Mama sees that they are still viewed down upon. She also realizes that Black people sometimes put themselves down because they think they are worthless, and therefore wants Walter to understand that just because he is Black doesn’t make him any less of a person.
