Still, listening to his classmates complain, he feels specifically responsible, as if his own work being attacked”.

When Leigh Anne looked over to find Michael sitting at the dining room table alone, she quickly set the table, moved the food onto the table and called her family over to eat all together in the dining room. Based on Sean’s, SJ’s and Collins’s reactions, it was made apparent that they usually eat their Thanksgiving lunch in the living room watching the football game. Leigh Anne demonstrated the symbolic interactionism theory here because by seeing Michael sitting alone at the table, she interpreted that Michael believed that the family should be sitting together rather than continuing their tradition of eating in the living room. She calls everyone over to eat in the dining room, not because she thought she should or wanted to, but because she thought
I remember, once, when I first put on that new dinner jacket, with the vast trousers, she clasped her hands, sank down on a chair and murmured: “Oh, Hermann….” (Nabokov, “Despair” 35-36) Hermann imagines that the murder of his double he has planned is faultless and cannot see how it can go wrong. He is either blinded by the promise of money he can get after Felix’s death or his delusional visions take over him and his thinking. It is portrayed when he talks about his future victim as if he was willing to die: “He is determined to die on his birthday” (Nabokov: “Despair” 150) Hermann is not then not only a crazy murderer, but also a person who only believes in himself, hates his wife, does not value anybody

The children have drunk English water. We’ve eaten well this evening.
Liz also attempts to achieve verisimilitude by acknowledging the existence and gains of feminism, where the movie is concerned it’s the food preparation and consumption put still the prickle in the back of every woman’s head is present which is the individuals choice to remain slender. Slender figures and controlling consumption show knowledge and putting limits whereas fatness symbolizes the lack of control and results in having downward social mobility. It is present in several scenes like where Liz and her new friends are celebrating in a restaurant in the background each ordering a cheesy dish of pasta but in the background there is a woman eating and feeding her dog salad. Also, when Liz and her Swedish friend were eating pizza and used the allusion of “bun in the oven” meaning pregnancy but in this scene it was more of the weight gained by being pregnant. On the other hand, in these scenes Liz exerts power by cooking and eating publicly and still not letting her body ooze out of control, simply enjoying the food and

Ashima and Ashok wonder, shaking their heads. But since neither of them feels comfortable pressing the issue, they have no choice but to give in”. ( Namesake 60) The irony here is that, having been born to Indians and that too to Bengali parents; Gogol has to retain a Russian name in America.

He tries to write a bit of poetry, but the postmaster is uninterested in nature and would be happy if it were replaced by the city landscape. His salary is small; he does his cooking, but he shares his food with Ratan, an orphan girl of the village, who does odd jobs for him. At night, he asks her whether she remembers her parents, learning that she has fonder memories of her father than of her mother. She can even recall a little brother. Sometimes these conversations last a long time—so long that the postmaster doesn’t cook and Ratan instead hastily prepares a light meal.
I was happy. Camp Life: The stench of rotten cheese and burnt bread wreaked from under my pillow. Saved from the previous night, I had breakfast awaiting to be scarfed down.
