Another way Mrs.Dubose is courageous is “I wanted you to see what real courage is ...see it through no matter what”(Lee 149). That takes courage and bravery to know she would willingly suffer just to be addiction free. All the time Jem was reading to her, she probably never heard a single word because she was focused on the clock and craving for morphine.So this is why I think her courageous and brave because she did not take the easy way out, she took the hard way and suffered, but she died a happy person because she achieved her goal to get rid of her addiction before she died. Jem and Scout did not know anything that she was going through they just thought she was some foul and mean person that disrespected their dad. But only understood when Atticus explained what she went through and the pain and
Elizabeth is known for her truthfulness and whenever she lies straight to the face of two judges it sort of causes chaos. While John Proctor is trying to overthrow the court, he admits to his affair with Abigail. The court does not believe John and so he tells the court to have Elizabeth tell them what actually has been happening since she never lies. What throws the whole court off is that whenever they ask her about the incident, she lies. Elizabeth tells them that Proctor never had an affair.
As Katherine Callen King says, “...Antigone as she is lead to her death in punishment for disobeying her uncle’s order”. (Katherine King, The Women’s Review of Books), anything that happened to herself was by her own doing. A tragic hero is supposed to realize their flaw and consequences, while suffering a deep pain. She never acknowleges her flaw, she remains self righteous, and never suffers loss by her own doing, because she releases herself from the world through
When you zoom into the quote you will also see a ellipses in the quote which shows the tension and anger which Curley 's Wife would never show to the other men. Steinbeck may have used this language to emphasise the villain in herself. Which tells us that if she had more power she would use it in a negative way. You can also tell that Curley 's Wife is releasing her anger towards Crooks since he is one of the only
Because she let her emotions control her, it resulted in bad decisions and the killing of her own husband. She 's possessive in that way because she didn 't want to accept that Mr. Maloney was going to leave her. Another key point to think about is how she lies. How DOES she lie? Simple, she hides behind her own excuses "¨(as) she sat down before the mirror (and) tidied her hair... she tried a smile.
Antoinette had never hit Marie nor Charlotte before, so at this point in the book, it was very heartbreaking knowing that Antoinette is so blinded by Emile that she would turn against her own family in order to defend him. Marie tried her best to change Antoinette's mind but with no luck until she would discover his guilt on her own accord. When Antoinette does have the realization that Emile was guilty, she knew that she needed to reconcile her relationship with Marie and apologize. She rekindled with her sister as well as bringing balance to their lives once more. The power of their love may have been harsh but it had brought them together and remained as so for the many years to
As she was a middle class mom, who was arrested and charged with her husband’s brother, she consciously did not mention her crime because this may divert the attention of readers and they may start focusing on other details that are rather unimportant. Another reason for not discussing her own circumstances may be that it may make the opinion of readers biased towards her. So whether she was innocent or not, but her purpose of writing was to focus on the lives of those women who are forgotten by society as well the policy makers. Erin George made a fair attempt to make higher officials think about improvements in correctional system for women and highlighted the areas which need many improvements and can be improved if higher authorities consider them
The Femme Fatale was represented by the character Veda. She was the innocent sweetheart initially, but had an alter ego as a murderer. Veda was misconceiving to both Mildred and Monte, and as she aged became an opportunist. During the investigation of the murder, she would rather use her mother as a scapegoat, instead of taking the responsibility for her actions. Her mother gave her everything she desired, but still she wanted more.
The reason why she let the bullies win was because she did talk in court when she had the chance. Another reason Ivy was in over her head was because she didn't seem to care. Ivy didn't seem to care about the trial and how Ann, Sophie, and Benita were winning the court battle. Inside Ivy wanted the girls to stop picking on her but it's more of Ivys fault for not standing up for herself. That is how Ivy was in over her head and let the bullies
A woman labeled with various nicknames by her husband may not seem like nothing to an outsider. Two women attempting to locate clues regarding their neighbor and a malicious crime is something that any friend would do. Both stories appear to be nothing out of the ordinary. That is, until these females decide to do what they feel is best and are antagonized for stepping foot in the direction of their choice rather than one that is laid out for them to follow. Nora, Mrs. Peters and Mrs. Hale are all women that appear as being feeble minded and docile as opposed to the male characters within the plays.
