Atypical behaviour for a first time encounter, Sylvia the protagonist of "The Living Library" by Linda McCleardy, self-sabotages her meeting through her personal presentation and lack of boundaries. Disclosing questionable information from one 's personal life and creating an uncomfortable situation for a professional seems detrimental when seeking their guidance. However, nonchalantly, avoiding social cues and lacking insight, the 25-year-old woman flounders through her conversation, surprisingly unaware of the resulting projected effect caused by her behaviour. With an impressive lack of insight and a tendency to ignore social cues, Sylvia is a complex character who due to her traits, is unable to develop throughout the text in order
But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over” (Hurston 72). Janie figures out that Joe is not the man she had married when the “image of Jody tumbled down” she begins to understand that Joe was not at all significant to her because he never cared for her and instead he was a bad influence. Janie figures out that he “never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams” the life she desires of with Joe Starks, is an allusion and Janie’s dreams are once again crushed. Janie is deceived by Joe because he represents empty dreams for Janie, he was a “drape [for] her dreams” Joe took advantage of Janie and manipulates her to do excessive labour for him in the store and constantly silences her.
Sonnet II explicitly disagrees with this theory relating love and time because the speaker solemnly states, “Time does not bring relief” (1). It has failed to “ease [her] of [her] pain!” (2). Time has aged her lover and taken him away, and it shows no sympathy for her either. To help heal herself, she removed herself from everywhere “fell his foot or shone his face” (12) in order to forget him and their gutted love. Regardless of her efforts, she is unable to do so, leaving her “stricken” (14).

For example, Laura was unable to attend business school because of her crippling shyness, and she was equally unable to tell Amanda about her breakdown in front of the class.

Firstly, with regard to Do, the narrator mentions that “she will never my [her] mother”, not “even when my [her] elder brother tries to rape her”, or “even when her wages stop being paid” (Duras 70). The narrator expresses a somewhat implicit, tacit resentment toward Do’s meek submissiveness, which she presumably, understandably from a cultural standpoint, sees as a characteristic or at least expected behavioral trait of females in such a patriarchal setting. Secondly, I could argue that Hélène’s not attending high school due to her being “not capable of it”, which, as Günther states, implies her “suffering from learning difficulties” (90), in addition to her act of “crying” in front of the narrator (Duras 71, 72) paint a similar image of female debilitation and inertia. In furtherance of the latter assumption, Hélène’s last name, Lagonelle, can be construed as symbolic of her passivity and submissiveness, as the the prefix “Lagon” resembles the French word “lagun”, which means “lagoon”, while the suffix “elle” translates in English into the pronoun “she”. The image conjured up by the image of a lake, in conjunction with its being gendered as female, can be seen as signifying Hélène’s exhibition of certain “quintessentially” female attributes, such as a kind of phlegmatic meekness and obedience.
She then wish her “babe had ne’er been born”, this phrase suggests how regretful and sorrowful the woman is as she was unable to work, and no welfare was provided at the time. She also couldn’t ask her friends for help as the society was very rejecting towards single mothers. Instead she needs to weep and beg “on a stranger’s knee”. However, the main reason she regrets having the child is due to the state and condition she is currently in. The child would not be be nurtured in a decent living standard and may be harmful to the child’s childhood.
Smith refused to provide accommodations. While Ms. Howard believed she was acting in the best interest of the student, she failed to contact Keesha’s parents about what had happened in the science classroom. Thus, Keesha’s parents were not given the opportunity to advocate on the behalf of their child (Weishaar and Scott, 2006, p. 72). If they had the opportunity, the parents could have filed a formal complaint or discussed this issue with the special education director of the district (PACER, 2005). Moreover, these events placed an unnecessary negative strain on Keesha’s emotional state (Weishaar and Scott, 2006, p.
