Myrtle ended up cheating on Wilson because Tom had the money that Wilson lacked, she felt like she deserved more than she was getting. Fitzgerald’s Novel The Great Gatsby shows how Gatsby and Wilson lied to their women about how much money they had. No matter the efforts, they were not the person that their partners fell in love with. So Wilson ends up with an unhappy marriage and Gatsby is only used as a tool for Daisy to get her husband
One comment that stood out to me was “women are used to worrying over trifles.” The words trifles means something of little value or importance, by Mr Hale stating women are used to worrying over unimportant items, it shows he doesn’t truly care about women’s thoughts. Sheriff Peters isn’t considered oppressive, but he is extremely dismissive of his wife’s thoughts and concerns. He is also quite prejudiced towards Minnie in the fact that she killed her husband. The final Man in this story is Mr Wright. Although he is dead and he never speaks, we do
Through all this reconnecting they really didn’t care about how Tom felt. Even though that was Daisy’s husband most of her attention was on James Gatsby. This led Tom to become Gina Gonzalez Hour 1 May 5, 2016 jealous and wanting to get Gatsby out of the picture once and for all. Tom only had his way of looking at things. So he really didn’t care that he was cheating on Daisy with Myrtle however he didn’t like the fact that Daisy was getting comfortable with James Gatsby.
Once Slim tells George about Curley’s wife, and how she is always eyeing the men, George feels nothing but hostility towards her, calling her a tart. He warns Lennie about her, telling him to “keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat-trap...” (Steinbeck 32). George does not really know anything about Curley’s wife, but he just makes assumptions based on what he sees and what people tell him. He has a premonition that something will happen if Lennie does not stay away from Curly’s wife, which Steinbeck uses to foreshadow events to come in his novella. Not only does George judge Curly’s wife for what kind of person she appears to be, but in a way, Curly himself does, too.
We can also contrast these wrong moral attitudes with Eva/Daisy’s refusal took take the money Eric stole from his father 's firm which shows a character of quality. Paragraph 8 Both Curly 's wife and Daisy/Eva die but the first is just through a terrible accident but the second was forced on her by the behaviour of those who could have helped her and therefore bear the infinitely greater guilt. Conclusion the above paragraphs show that there are some aspects of these two texts regarding women which are the same but others are very
Another thing that led the narrator close to insanity was basically being isolated in the house. She spoke many times about wanting to see cousin Henry and Julia but John said he would only let her see them when she gets well and anytime before that he would rather "put fireworks in her pillowcase" than let her see those "stimulating people." After awhile she thought it was "discouraging not to have any advice and companionship." John spent most of his time in town because of serious cases and Jennie let her be alone when ever she wanted to be. When she was alone she said she would always cry I 've nothing and started to imagine things is the wallpaper.
In the novel one of the men, Carlson is annoyed by Curley’s outburst of trying to look for his wife and complains, “Whyn’t you tell her to stay the hell home where she belongs?” (62). Men didn’t like the idea that women could have the same rights as them and go around to places instead of staying at home. They believe that since women are meant to be housewives, they should stay in the house. From this quote, the reader perhaps, mistakenly agrees with Carlson, thinking that Curley’s wife is just a rebellious woman who isn’t there for her husband. This distinguishes of how the readers can misunderstand Curley’s wife characterization by reason of the lack of historical context.
In the movie, Daisy is seen as weak and needy, she also is more romantic with Gatsby. She is less shallow, when her and Gatsby are in his home, she cries over how beautiful the shirts are, however Nick tells the audience that her real reason was because of the time she has missed with Gatsby.. In the book Tom Book is a jerk, he consistently is making racist and sexist comments causing those around him to dislike him. Although he is a bad guy, he does not tell Wilson that Gatsby is the reason his wife Myrle is dead after hitting him with his car. In the movie Tom is still a jerk, but the racist and sexist jokes were removed because they are considered not socially acceptable in today’s time period.
Well, I met another bad driver didn’t I? I mean it was careless of me to make such a wrong guess. I thought you were rather an honest, straightforward person.” (177). Furthermore, Jordan is extremely hypocritical of Nick, and brushes him lazily aside. Daisy is also careless with her relationships after discovering of Gatsby’s existence nearby; as she bounces between Gatsby and Tom claiming to love both until a conflict is reached and she is forced to choose.
Roald Dahl answers these questions by demonstrating how innocent people can unconsciously let their emotions take control when Mary Maloney kills her husband. Mary Maloney does not mean to kill her husband; she loses control after being emotionally hurt and then hits him. The chaos all starts when Mary’s husband arrives home in an exhausted, uninterested mood, and confesses to her something that would be “a bit of a shock” (Dahl 2). Dahl is not specific with what the husband
