Henry Lafayette Dubose shows both how the racism in Maycomb was very present and how it was normalized too. She normalizes racism when she called Atticus a “nigger lover”. Her using this phrase shows that she saw it as shameful to treat coloured folks equally, and she is very comfortable with saying it. Her racism is also clear when she says “Your father's no better than the niggers and trash that he works for!” [Lee 110]. She is showing how present racism is in Maycomb because she thinks that coloured people ranks as “trash” and that she is better than them.
He is mainly focused in the relationship between Stellas sister, Blanche and the environment of the raffish charm city, New Orleans. In the beginning of the play, Blanche and New Orleans are anticipated as totally incongruous together. The reason why this controversy is created between Stellas sister and New Orleans, is that Blanche comes from Belle Reve, a completely different city, and she is not used to the life in the place where Stella has settled down, as she is described as a highbrow person, from an elevated social class who is well refined and very delicate. Her character is also noticed from the fluffy bodice clothes and the white gloves that she is wearing, as well as the cultural language that Blanche uses to communicate with the others. On the other hand, New Orleans is a small city, with old white painted houses with rickety stairs, with an atmosphere of decay, full of bars where the loud disturbing sound of the tinny piano is heard, and people that behave differently from what Blanche expected.
Each conflict allows there to be understanding as to why the conflict took place and how it got as destructive as it did. To begin, power is the main reason for conflict in this film. Regina has distributive power because she has power over everyone in the school (Hocker & Wilmot,
The first paragraph of “English Con Salsa” by Gina Valdes is crucial to the reader’s understanding of the title. She eloquently and humorously, states her frustration of forced assimilation to our culture. She takes a jab at the racial stereotypes, and what English they will be able to say such as “More coffee”? (Line7). It is evident that she is mocking the expectations of her English class and will omit leaving behind the rich culture she speaks fondly of.
The tone is the element that brings the entire plot together, driving home the theme of the story by forcing the reader to digest the aspects of the story it amplifies. The voice of the story is overwhelmingly sympathetic in favor of Blanche, causing the audience to have pity on her even in times when they theoretically should not. When Blanche arrives at her sister’s residence, she comes across pretty distraught and nervous, seeming wracked by some horror or another, even saying outright that she couldn’t be alone because she wasn't very well while "her voice drops and her look is frightened” (Williams 17). Right off the bat, the audience is bound to feel sorry for her and even worried for her well-being, a sense of distress and even embarrassment sweeping over the audience just by the state that she entered the stage with and the overwhelming anxiety and pain that seems to swarm
Lastly, Tybalt is the most to blame for the events that occur in Romeo and Juliet because of the the first events he caused leading to the suicides of Romeo and Juliet. The confirmation that Tybalt is the cause of the terrible events in Romeo and Juliet is shown in the play “Romeo and Juliet” when Romeo says, “Is it even so? then I defy you, stars! Thou know 'st my lodging: get me ink and paper, and hire post-horses; I will hence tonight.” when he finds out that Juliet is dead, but doesn’t know she faked her death. Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man.
Introduction Inspector Goole said to Sheila and Gerald, “You see, we have to share something. If there’s nothing else, we’ll have to share our guilt.” (page 29). An Inspector Calls is a play with the main theme being the constant shift of blame surrounding a young girl 's suicide in 1912 Brumley, due to the series of events instigated by the Birling family and their associates. Although all of the characters in ‘An Inspector Calls’ played a part in the suicide of the soon to be mother Eva Smith, the three that are subject to greater blame are: Arthur Birling, Eric Birling, and Gerald Croft, due to what they have done and what they have said. Arthur Birling is the first suspect, although not the guiltiest character in the play.
In the Puritan faith, the men are generally flawed while the women are morally pure in most regards. In the short stories by Nathaniel Hawthorne, “The Birthmark” and “Rappaccini’s Daughter,” Georgiana and Beatrice are, in their respective short stories, pure because they each have one flaw. Also, in their respective short stories, Aylmer and Giovanni are flawed in their obsession with the one imperfection in their woman of interest. In “The Birthmark,” Aylmer wishes to rid Georgiana of her birthmark, which is a red, handprint-shaped birthmark on her face. In “Rappaccini’s Daughter,” Giovanni sees and becomes interested in Beatrice who has a poisonous touch that prevents them from truly being together.
Throughout the novel, lies like the death of David's new born baby, Phoebe, have an impact on every main character f, as they see their lives turned around for the worst. Whether it is the fact that lying affected David's character, or that it ended Carolines's young life short, or even ended David's relationship with Norah, lying always ends up affecting someone in the end of it. The secret David withholds from Norah about Phoebe, affects Davids relationships and characters with the loved ones closest to him.
In this case, many of the characters have died due to murder or suicide. These continuous deaths heighten the tension, as the suspense and mystery revolving around who would die next, magnifies the sense of anticipation in the audience. These deaths occur gradually, with King Hamlet being the first, as he had died before the play even started. This is followed by Polonius’ death by Hamlet in Act 3, Scene 4. As a result of her father’s death, Ophelia had reached a mental decline and resorted to committing suicide by drowning herself in Act 4, Scene 7.
A Streetcar Named Desire is no exception, for Williams produces two characters, Stanley Kowalski and Blanche DuBois, whose wants and needs are worlds apart. DuBois, on one hand, is a broken women. Due to her disturbing past, she is unsure of herself and others and is troubled by haunting recollections of her past. As Stella Kowalski describes, DuBois was once naïve and trusting of both herself and others. However, men and women took advantage of her amicability as evil people often do and made her close herself off by becoming callas, unfeeling, and protective of her already torn heart.
Blanche’s suppression begins after Allen’s death. For Blanche his death opened up a floodgate of fear and desire which she could not manage. After Allen’s death Blanche was filled with fear, fear that she would end up alone and become a spinster. This panic "drove [her] from one [man] to another, hunting for some protection”(117). As well Blanche states that when she met her husband, she “made the discovery-love.
We can look at Blanche’s husband death as a cause of her mental illness because she is haunted by the scene of Allan’s death in the entire play. And that’s how her grip on reality seems to slip from herself. She uses fantasy as magic that protects from reality’s harsh blow. Tennessee William uses Blanche’s fantasy to contrast
