The scarlet letter ‘A’ did not stand for “adultery” anymore. It stood for “able.” “The letter was the symbol of her calling. Such helpfulness was found in her, —so much power to do, and power to sympathize, —that many people refused to interpret the scarlet A by its original signification. They said that it meant Able; so strong was Hester Prynne, with a woman's strength.” (Ch. 13, pg 107) She had gained respect for having raised her child as a well behaved young girl, and having provided for the both of them with an honest living as a seamstress, all the while being cut off from the rest of society.
I decided that it was high time to write the essay” (20). In the women’s room, Nancy falls down, but that doesn’t make her sad or disappoint. She was free laugh, she wouldn’t laugh if she was with someone, but she was alone, so she laughs and decides to write her own story. Her disability is not something makes to laugh about, but she does. Disability is a serious ailment, but Nancy doesn’t get depressed, because her personality and her illness is not related to each other.
In the end, she was just a girl who knew way too much for her own good. McClellan made Guy Montag acknowledge and enjoy the small things in life. Before Clarisse, Guy never walked or drove slow to see the color of things. This disturbed her, she loved to catch raindrops on her tongue, and watch the world along with listen to the voices or sounds around her. For this exact reason, Clarisse would leave small surprises for Montag on his
The Marigolds at first are just something pretty amidst an ugly situation. However, later in the story, they become something much more. When Lizabeth finally sees past herself, leaving behind ignorance, she understands what they mean. For Miss.Lottie, they were the good things left in her world of squalor. “ Whatever verve was left in her, whatever was of love and beauty and joy that had not been squeezed out by life, had been there in the Marigolds she had so tenderly cared for” (Lizabeth, Lines Eventually, for Lizabeth, they signified the moment she became a woman.
They would rub dandelions on their chins to see if there was any dust, and if there was then they were in love. This was unusual in their society but she wanted to be herself no matter what. “...I tell them that sometimes I just sit and think. But I won't tell them what.” (Bradbury, 20). In this she says she thinks about things but won't tell anyone what.
Keeping to yourself can actually cause more issues than opening up. In the novel Crow Lake by Mary Lawson, Kate Morrison is a very reserved and kind character. She is reserved because for her entire childhood this is how she is brought up. She is also taught how to treat others and that makes her the kind person she is to this day. Kate proves to be kind because she really puts other peoples’ feelings into consideration when saying or doing something.
Dillard gives the insight of a girl that is imprisoned by society as a fix composition to serve her life as just one ordinary woman. This also presents the writer's purpose but it in a subtle way. "I have loved, O Lord, the beauty of thy house and the place where dwelleth thy glory." Unlike The Glass Castle, Dillard's sense of struggles was completely different yet reasonable. She protested that even though she is a girl, she can be as magnificent as the other boy were perhaps even better.
Coraline knows that she can’t be everything to her parents, but they are not everything to each other either. Everyone is an individual but they share their lives with the people around them. The material things she latches onto won’t give her the human connection she truly desires, and that she needs others to share her life with. When she reaches the end of the movie the theme of materialism has come full circle. Coraline is working in the garden she wanted in the beginning, but she is sharing it with all the people in her life.
She always manages to keep her head held i high though she learns to dance and be happy without anyone by her side. I feel like this poem was such a relatable one for me and many others who don 't have it the best. You don 't always have to have someone by your side through everything, but sure is nice to. Is was a really good one for many different reasons, the way the narrator explained how the mom wasn 't really there for her daughter and how she
She took pride in what she did, but she shared it with everyone, she was trustworthy and a great friend who Lily began to love very much. May had depression problems but found a creative way to cope, and even when people heard about it they never made fun of her because it was what helped her. June was not afraid to stand her ground against anyone, she was hard headed but kind all wrapped up in one. Rosalene showed real individuality and independence when stood up for herself to the white men. She may not have handled things in the best way but she was not afraid to stand her ground.
From the beginning to the end of this book, Rose showed that she was content with being in the cellar. This differed from every other girl in there, which was very strange. She continued to be very calm and exuberant, getting excited about small things like new outfits and yarn to knit with. “We can’t. There is no way out, so you need to get this idea out of your head now” (Preston 59).
Lamb to the Slaughter I believe that Mrs.Maloney is innocent because she was insane. She had a mental issue and when she became angry she was not able to control herself. She always was so nice to him and would never anything like this. Every Day she would greet him ask about his day and get a nice drink. She loved how he would sit loosely in the chair and the way he would walk inside and he did not talk about his tiredness.
I relate most to Cath. I feel like I can relate to Cath the most because she is shy at first, but she learns to come out to people in a positive way. I feel I am very shy at first, but when I get to know people I’m very lively and happy. I can also relate because Cath and I are not the most outgoing people - we both don’t do sports and we both would rather stay home than go out. Lastly, we both have a twin sister!
She takes care of the chrysanthemums as if they were her own children, “She spread the leaves and looked down among the close-growing stems. No aphids were there, no sowbugs or snails or cutworms. Her terrier fingers destroyed such pests before they could get started” (Steinbeck 243). We can say that she is protecting her chrysanthemums because they are the only things that she has control over. By having this sense of control we can say that this brings her joy because she does not have control of her own life.
In contrast, that playful attitude becomes an unoccupied play pattern on the playground—with her sitting by herself along the wall. When I brought her case to her teacher, Mrs. Henrietta said, “Well, she was close to Stephanie.” That made perfect sense. Stephanie was Vera’s dear friend who transferred to another school, showing that Vera’s culture may place more emphasis on “dyadic friendships,” (Chen, 2011, p. 97)—the smallest social group possible—as a comfort zone for establishing peer interaction, as compared to group involvement. Likewise, through the security from that dyadic relationship, Vera did not demonstrate “shyness,” which Western cultures view as “incompetent and immature” (Chen, 2011, p. 96). Instead, traditional Chinese culture recognizes shyness as “an indication of mastery and accomplishment” (Chen, 2011, p. 96).
