In Go Set a Watchman, by Harper Lee, twenty-six-year-old Jean Louise Finch returns home from New York City to visit her father, Atticus. Jean Louise experiences extreme amounts of disillusionment throughout her homecoming when she discovers that her father, who she completely adored throughout her entire childhood, is not who she thought he was. To elaborate, as a child, Jean Louise took Atticus 's word for gospel and idolized everything about him. At one point in the novel, Jean Louise describes Atticus as “the only human being she had ever fully and wholeheartedly trusted.” (Lee 113) When Jean Louise returns to Maycomb, she discovers that her father has is far from perfect, as he uses derogatory terms about colored people and attends citizens council meetings that are dedicated to preserving white supremacy. Upon realizing this, Jean Louis must learn how to separate herself from her father 's ideas and think on her own.

These three points were how DSS handled the case, denial and blame, and family secrets. The issue with how DSS handled the case of the Stands Over Bull children seemed rushed and somewhat negligent. The way the documentary presented it, she did not exert much attention to finding someone to take these children within their own community. Instead, she crossed several state lines to find a couple to adopt these children, in which this family already had six children. It is great that she found a way to keep these siblings together, but in circumstances where a culture is so different from outside cultures, it seems best to look inside their own culture first.
Meeting Homer Barron was her biggest change from her old self, because her father did not allow her be in any relationships, but she went out in public with Homer “driving in the yellow-wheeled buggy and the matched team of bays from the livery stable” (454). Consequently, this was only because she was living in her own reality and believed that Homer would be the one to marry her. Homer was “not a marrying man” (454) and would not marry Emily, but she refused to accept the denial of marriage from him, so she killed him to keep him with her forever. She stayed within her house to keep herself in the Old South. When she told the men to see Colonel Sartoris, she was not aware that “Colonel Sartoris had been dead for almost ten years” (452) at that point.
With this imperfection Anne has a low self esteem and confidence which meant she was afraid to do anything to upset her parents further. When she had the opportunity to do her part in the war she took in in hopes of proving herself to her parents that she is worth more than just someone to be married. Anne shows us that through determination and hard work, things may not end up with the happy ending you expected but instead can finish in something completely different but just as good.
She has no respect for her husband and doesn’t show any concern for him. It is further proof that they do not have a true relationship. However, it goes both ways as Curley doesn’t trust his wife at all. He automatically assumes that she is making romantic advances on Slim when he can’t find her around the ranch (pg 54, p6). Without even thinking twice about it, Curley believes the worst of his wife and that she has no devotion at all.
Even though she is continuously stating “‘I don`t understand...’” (345) no answer is given to her. Not by her parents and not by their siblings. Rather they draw her back into their shallow superficial behavior and distract her: “At the sight of him Laura remembered the accident again. She wanted to tell him... ‘My word, Laura! You do look stunning,’ said Laurie... and didn`t tell him tell him after all.”
However, the letter finds its way into Heloise’s hands, which causes her to reach out to Abelard, causing a series of passionate letters between them. At first Heloise is longing and reminiscing about their past. Later she tries to say she has gotten over her love for Abelard, but comes out saying that she cannot rod him from her mind. Abelard admits he still loves and thinks about Heloise, but he is sorrowful over their sinful past. He wants what is best for Heloise, and wants her to focus on her spiritual life and be the best abbess she can be.
One of the reasons that Adeline 's is so depressed is because the first thing is the fact that Adeline never gets any mail from anyone because her parents have forbiddened anyone from getting any mail. When she goes she was very small and then when she was older her parents never got here any new clothes and then she became known as the referee. She had made friends at her school but then her parents had have enough so then they had sent her to an orphanage. Finally no one cares about Adeline because if someone did then she would not feel like she is nothing and then she would have felt better about her self and then she probably would have had a better thought about herself and maybe about her friends. That is why I think that Chinese Cinderella is a depressing story.
What is the culture in the novel, too rigorous? To disciplined? The story shows what happens when a special person comes into our life and how the person’s present and future is changed. The story is more concentrated on Shinji’s’s and Hatsue’s’s love life. How they fell in love and later what were the consequences they had to face, how over serene Shinji’s’s life was before he fell in love with Hatsue’s and then it became unpleasant and in the end how they got each other.
Valerie must face complications with her family, old friends, and the girl whose life she saved. Can Valerie survive her senior year of High School and let go of the past? I think that the “Hate List” was an outstanding book. I thought the book had a fantastic plot which made the book have many great themes to learn from and also caused the book to get very intense at some moments. Also, the book had many interesting characters with all different stories and backgrounds to help enhance the story.
By doing this she explains how working-class parents were afraid for their child to enter the real world because they felt they might grow to be ashamed of their background, or they wouldn’t want to return home, or only come home to prove that their life will be better than their parents. “Class realities separated me from fellow students” (Hooks 419). In most class meetings, class disparity was not a topic of discussion and Hooks never discussed how she began to feel a sense of guilt when she thought about the brown skin Filipina women who got paid to clean the college living areas or how she tried to make an effort to send money home to help her mother out. Even though Hooks knew she would be receiving a good education she also knew she had the option to rebel at any
The first or major event that jumpstarted Janie’s life was perhaps when Nanny convinced Janie that she should marry Logan, which wasn’t all for the right reasons. Nanny wanted her to marry him because he had money and he could provide for her and keep her financially stable. Their relationship was brittle and dry. Logan just expected her to clean up, make the food and basically be a house slave. There was no love in that relationship and it was mentally draining Janie.
