It was difficult to watch the parents struggle, and it frustrated me that there was no discipline or punishment whatsoever; every one of the parents’ responses were passive. I thought it was very interesting to see how Child A’s sister was calm when she first came in with the parents, but as soon as they sat down and Child A began getting rowdy, she followed his every move. Unless the parents change their way of teaching, Child A would not be a great role model for his sister to follow. His loud and disruptive behavior is a definite example of the external behavior, and it would not surprise me if the child grew up to be very aggressive and possibly violent. As I watched the family, it reminded me greatly of that clip you linked in our module about the Supernanny.
They think that it’s the “traditions”, but it’s because people are uneducated and ignorant. I loved how Sonita rebelled against her family and their traditions. It rarely when a girl goes against her family. She didn’t gave up on her dream, which is to be rapper. I also loved the friendly relationship between the director and Sonita.
Unlike Mayella, Bob despises negroes. He constantly calls negroes the “N” word and harassed both Tom and his wife. If it were not for the color of their skin, he would never have done this. Another difference between the two characters is that Bob stays bitter towards the people of Maycomb after the trial, but Mayella does not. The audience knows that Mayella does not stay bitter, as it is never said that she was or that she acted on it at all.
I never did anything wrong to you in my life. I never loved Cassio, except with the pure love that I feel for humankind. I never gave him any token of romantic love.” (Othello lines 73-76 pg 241). It is clear that Othello is still trying to implicate Desdemona for cheating on him with Cassio, but she denies and pours out her love for him. Desdemona could have easily left him because of how much he accused her of cheating, but Desdemona truly loved him and truly wanted to be with
Hester changed her attire to a plain, darkshade, with no designs, which corresponded to her emotions. There was nothing she could accomplish to reduce the pain of the guilt since the truth was known by everyone in her hometown. As time went on, Hester regained some purport in her town. The townspeople demanded Hester for her skills and soon she did not need to wear the scarlet letter anymore, but she thought she deserved it. Whether the sin was committed in secrecy or not, both Hester and Dimmesdale went through similar consequences.
Gatsby as well as most of the characters in the book know that Tom is not good for her and she would be better off with Jay. Daisy is selfish, she doesn 't wait for Gatsby to get back from war. She thinks it 's better for women to be controlled and not have minds of their own. Most of the times she does not make her own choices, and when she does her actions are mindless and only help her needs. Jay is very generous and tries to help people throughout the book.
The reason for that is that she doesn't like to talk about herself but she is willing to listen to all their stories and confessions on themselves. However, despite this success and despite the fact that her husband is very proud of her, Hanna is not very happy. She feels that she is just playing a role like other women and that no one knows what she really thinks and wants.
This aids the lack of empathy that Stanley has towards her. Stanley is always questionable about her situation and does not get “swindled” by her methods of seduction or her lies. This resilience to Blanche allows Stanley to remain the “king around here”. During a majority of the play, Blanche attempts to break Stanley’s resilience to her slutty character by flirting with him. Stanley only once breaks this resilience of her sexual tendencies by raping her.
The wish was not literally granted but had some restrictions. Pecola didn’t literally receive blue eyes but she thought she did, and so it was a mind game. He lead “Pecola to lies, self-delusion and madness”, not a great quality of a pastor (Edmund 2). These blue eyes that she saw, were supposed to fix everything and change “the evil to good”. On the contrary and to her disappointment, these blue eyes did nothing that she dreamed of but made the people around her continue to think worse of her.
There does not seem to be any similarities between her and her husband as there are completely different people. She never fights back and gets angry whenever there seems to be trouble. Instead she is the one that keeps the peace around the family and holds it all
They also give reasons such as there are no bruises on her face, they never saw them argue, and why didn 't she leave. These stereotypes are used against all battered women however, most abusers choose parts of body that are covered and no one can see and they are really nice around other people, but very cruel to their wife. Also, one of victim 's Sister in-law said there was a car and she could have left when he was away, but Shirley insist he chained her in the basement when he leaves. This stereotypes about battered women make Shirley and many other women who are battered not to press charges and when they do nobody believes them.
Throughout the novel, Hester’s treatment is obvious, and she makes many efforts to not let her choice, and her illegitimate child Pearl, define her. She vows to never reveal the name of Pearl’s father, however it is later revealed that he is the ever-so-respected town Reverend Arthur Dimmesdale. Hester is more than aware of her exclusion from the groups of the colony, even though she was working to rebuild her name by working and keeping busy, “In all her intercourse with society, however, there was nothing that made her feel as if she belonged to it. Every gesture, every word, and even the silence of those with whom she came in contact, implied, and often expressed, that she was banished, and as much alone as if she had inhabited another sphere, or communicated with the common nature by other organs than the rest of human kind” (page 108). The judgmental community that Hester is a part of, ceases to affect her actions.
Rinni is quite shy and reserved around other people, but turns to her 'loud ' and 'energetic ' side once she begins to warm up to them. In addition to this, she usually keeps a level head as there’s rarely anything that sets her off. It takes a while before she could recognize the sarcastic tone in the words of others, but she doesn’t pay much thought to insults either way. She tries her best to speak and act 'smart ' in public, using the words her brother had taught her, but this fails most of the time due to her speech defects. Despite not finishing her studies, she is very eager to learn.
It says “she could scarcely refrain, yet always did refrain, from covering the symbol with her hand.” Although she feels some humiliation from other members of society, she is strong enough to not cover up the letter in shame from the beginning of the novel. She wears the letter with pride and accepts her punishment without guilt for her actions. She exhibits self-determination by not submitting to the strict standards of her society. Dimmesdale, on the other hand, does not begin and end the story with the same sense of self as Hester. He does not own up to his actions,
