“Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed.” writer Mwai Kibaki understands how life should be runflow. Unfortunately, this is not how Salem, Massachusetts, was manageding during the first accusations of witchcraft back in the year 1692. The Crucible written by Arthur Miller shows how easily authority may be lost during witch trials when personal greed becomes a main factor once the townspeople realize what they could gain. Abby originally lied about witchcraft to bypass punishment, but eventually she became more and more consumed by her determination to get John's hand in marriage but first ending his relations with his wife Elizabeth Proctor.
In Sedgwick’s A New-England Tale, Mrs. Wilson is the classic representation of a novel’s antagonist, especially in regards to how she treats protagonist, Jane Elton. However, it is the parenting, or lack thereof that has the greatest impact on the lives of Elvira and David Wilson, who despite being prohibited from engaging in sinful behavior, do just that. Sedgwick demonstrates that Mrs. Wilson’s salvation may have given her an authority over others, but when she failed to teach her children the ways of the Lord, her responsibility abandonment led to her children’s act of sin. Hiding away in the garret, readers find that Elvira, in act of defiance against her mother’s prohibitions keeps a romantic novel in the dark corners that she reads for

Shellbe also becomes confrontational when she believes that she knows better than her foster parents.
Fear manipulated the society into thinking normal meant good and ‘’deviant’’ meant evil. Waknukians live in a “society of fear’’ which changed people’s characters and resulted in unfortunate events. This is shown when Aunt Harriet came to visit and tried to convince her sister to let her borrow Petra (Emily’s daughter) to get her deviant baby certified, but got denied by Emily (Wyndham 71). The fear of the unknown resulted in family
Her greatest fear in this struggles was the ability to lose control over the influences school versus home played in writing. She would always go back and second guess herself in making sure that her views were not conflicting with the other so much that it stood out, which would confuse her. She grew up learning that these conflicts of interest in political views should not happen. Min-Zhan Lu says “Despite my parents ' and teachers ' attempts to keep home and school discrete, the internal conflict between the two discourses continued whenever I read or wrote. Although I tried to suppress the voice of one discourse in the name of the other, having to speak aloud in the voice I had just silenced each time I crossed the boundary kept both voices active in my mind.
These rumors were a threat to what she has created in order to help her with the chaos in her life. Although she tried to build a new life with Stella, Stanley never gave in to her act and was constantly suspicious of her actions. Stanley's constant investigations and interrogations on Blanche’s old life. This is a representation of reality is starting to creep in of Blanche's newly created life. From the beginning Stanley has doubted Blanche, this is seen as he went through Blanche's things with Stella, questioning her belongings, “has she got this stuff out of teacher's pay?”(2.33).
“No your not going to have a tantrum on me! (16). This shows me that when Melody was trying to help the little boy from the toy, Melody 's mom just figured she wanted the toy and thought Melody was acting like a little brat. If I where Melody I would be extremely upset that nobody is able to understand what I was trying to say. Also when Melody was young was going to the doctor to see what was wrong with her.
She learns this from Atticus in a couple of ways. One way is when Atticus tells Scout not to judge Miss Caroline. Scout is very angry with Miss Caroline and thinks she is a mean, prissy person. Scout is told to walk around in Miss Caroline’s skin to see where she is coming from. Even though she doesn’t necessarily understand it, she later learns that she shouldn’t judge people so quickly, and applies it when she meets a new person.
I do not think playing the piano will help you come up with an escape plan, but cleaning the key might give you time to think of one. It also weird that she rebelled against the husband’s word in the first place by going into the chamber not knowing the consequence. Then, she chooses not to rebelled when husband told her to get ready for her death knowing of the consequences. Carter wrote the story making the female protagonist blindly obeying the commands of husband, which I think exaggerates the idea that older stories were written where the female had no power and needed a man to have an identity. At the beginning of the story, the main character was piano girl, and that is basically all we knew about her.
Elliott then resorted to lying and sneaking around behind his mother’s back because of his mother’s disapproval of him telling stories. This is an accurate norm that a child would demonstrate because they would not want to get into trouble. Obviously there is conflict in the home with Elliott because he makes the comment that his dad would believe him. Elliott is showing his emotional need of his father not being there with him but
She seemed like the only person who cared and payed attention to Ender. Peter was a bully to Ender, and his parents resented him because of the past they were trying to evade. Another imperative quote from chapter 3 is in the beginning when the two anonymous voices were talking. “‘He [Ender] won’t want to leave her. [Valentine]’ ‘So, what are you going to do?’ ‘Persuade him that he wants to come with us more than he wants to stay with her.’ ‘How will you do that?’ ‘I’ll lie to him.’ ‘And if that doesn’t work?’ ‘Then I’ll tell the truth.’” (Card, page 16) We can conclude that one of the voices is Colonel Graff because he’s the one who came to try to persuade Ender to go with him.
Because her parents could not afford her desires they told her that she did not need them and shamed her into not wanting them. Bell says ' ' “My desires were often made to seem worthless and stupid.” Also, she says , ' ' learned to mistrust and silence them” ( Hooks, 1) in these quotes , Hook 's mother would make her wants “seem worthless and stupid . This is
She never wanted to do what she was told by people she didn 't fully respect. She puts up the fight of her life to Aunt Alexandera because she does not want to become a lady. She does everything she can to stay away from her for a while, then she just tries to stay away from it. Atticus, Scout’s father, commented that he thought that he would have more problems with Scout, because of her fighting spunky nature, than with Jem, her older brother (120). She also would go to the court case, after her father deliberately told them to not go to town.
Her reaction to not being able to freely express her own mind was saying hurtful things to her mother, “Then I wish I weren’t your daughter, I wish you weren’t my mother, I shouted” (Tan 141-142). Tan was aware that once these things were said, they could not be taken back, but she was not done yet. Amy Tan wanted her mother to know that she did not want to be the obedient daughter her mother yearned for her to be. She wanted to see her mother’s anger explode, so she resurfaced the incident no one ever spoke of. Tan brought up the babies who had died, and said, “I wish I were dead!
