By doing so it becomes apparent that Daisy holds no desire to either compliment the child for growing up, nor pay attention to her if it had not been to show her off. F. Scott Fitzengerald create Daisy to be the perfect women from a shallow outside perspective, however he displays her as a different character that hides her true self because she feels like she is required to hide it. He shows the influence from the roaring twenties and that women are not simple housewives with one mindset, instead she differs greatly from the perfect women by the times standard and shows that women might want something else than what is given and expected of
The colorism she first faced was her grandmother inspecting her the shade of color of her skin to see if she looked more European or Indigenous (Anzaldúa 1983, 221). Colorism occurs when someone, generally darker skinned, is less desirable due to the shade of color of their skin within their own family. Anzaldúa faced this when she was called “muy prieta” and was told to stay out of the sun in order to keep her skin lighter. She was also shamed by her family for being openly sexual by being called “puta” and “jota (queer)” when she told them of her friends’ sexual orientation (Anzaldúa 1983, 227). Those labels were used to shame her for her lifestyle as well as to give power to the patriarchy and heteronormative society she resided
Jane hated that Mr. Rochester bought pretty jewelleries and dresses for her;” the more he bought me, the more my cheek burned with a sense of annoyance and degradation” (Brontë, 321). One can interpret this as Jane worries that the marriage would lessen her independence and put her at an inferior position. The fact that Mr. Rochester buys her all these things makes Jane feel objectified, and she could not tolerate it. Once again, this signals the feministic opinions that the character of Jane is associated with. Jane and Mr. Rochester does not get married during this section of the book, due to the fact that he is already in a marriage.
After reading Hibben’s critique I agree with the statements she makes. Hibben’s talks about how Tea Cake and Janie’s relationship was different from the others. When Janie was with Mister Killicks she didn’t care about his “land, and his sagging belly, and his toenails that looked like mules’ feet,” she wanted love not material things. Janie wasn’t pleased with all the nice things she could obtain from marrying Mister Killicks, she was looking for the happiness love would give her, not what Killicks had. This can also explain why Janie ran away with Joe Starks.
When Jeannette tells her mother: “I was too ashamed, Mom. I hid.” (page 5) she means this in two different ways. One being because she is ashamed to say her parents are homeless while she is not. Another is because she realizes that she felt this way during her childhood because there was a way they could have prevented it, but they chose not to. Jeannette is ashamed at times throughout The Glass Castle because of her parents lifestyle choice.
As Vivie challenge her mother, Mrs. Warren has trouble accepting Vivie’s opinion. For that reason, vivid compares herself to a poor women to demonstrate that, “Everybody has some choice, mother” (Shaw 1804). Vivie wants the choice to seek out a job to benefit herself instead her mother. Thus, Vivie challenges the female role through her behaviour when she tells her mother “I don 't want to be worthless” (Shaw 1827). She ultimately wants to have a purpose in society instead of others seeing her an object through her appearance.
In John Steinbeck’s story “The Chrysanthemums”, it details, along as follow a lady and the plant she loves to grow. Within the story a young lady expresses her love for this specific plant. She explains why she grows it and how highly she holds them. It gives her a sense of pride and ease when she takes care of them. It is a way of escape from her feeling of confinement.
Mary attempts to conform to society 's expectations of a woman, but fails in doing so. She reads books vigorously, but will not be able to think deeply about its meaning--she simply regurgitates facts without analyzing them. She strives to be what society expects of her, but it results in complete loss of personality on her part. Kitty is described as being flirtatious and gossipy, sometimes to an irritating point. She does not have an extended description, but Austen intended for readers to assume that she was consumed with matters, not of love, but lust.
Bennet being ironically overbearing is when she says, “I desire you will do no such thing. Lizzy is not a bit better than the others” (line 74-75). She’s being overbearing by trying to tell Mr. Bennet what to say to Mr. Bingley. She is telling him not to put in a good word for their daughter Lizzy, and this is ironic because previously she stated that the reason she wanted Mr. Bennet to go visit Mr. Bingley is so that Mr. Bingley might want to marry one of their daughters, so it would be assumed that she would want a good word put in for any of them. The characteristics of Mr. and Mrs. Bennet are archetypes themselves.
The role of women in this period was strictly (***********) In the unfolding of the story, Alice presents almost immediately as an individual who is outwardly displeased with the manner in which she is expected to behave. The story truly begins with Alice in a carriage with her mother en route to an event that she was unaware was in fact her engagement party. She directly challenges the social expectations imposed on females when her mother expresses her displeasure about Alice not wearing either her corset or her stockings despite knowing that she would be attending a formal affair. Alice reacts to her mother’s disapproval by asking, “who is to say what is proper?”. She implies that people blindly accept and act on what is expected of them by stating that people would likely wear a fish on their heads if suddenly it was expected to be socially pleasing to do
