I approve of Grace Ann because even though she’s Fran’s little sister, she helps out Fran more than she notices and she’s there ready to defend Fran whenever she needs it. I also approve of Mike Riordan for the reason that Fran decided to tell him the truth about her even though she didn’t know him very well at that time and he was very understanding and caring about the whole situation. Then further into the book, Fran and him know that they are attracted to each other, but Fran kept on pushing him away and he just waited for her to be ready, so he was really patient and it paid off because Fran and him get married and have a daughter. The characters I most disliked are Bobby Benedetto and Patty Bancroft, who helped Fran and Robert leave.
In the story, “Psyche’s Art”, it states, “But being very much in earnest about doing her duty, not because it was her duty, but as a means toward an end, Psyche fell to work with a will, hoping to serve both masters at once... Psyche found duties and desires desperately antagonistic.” (Alcott 2177). She wanted to do both, but it wasn’t working. To be devoted to the household work didn’t allow her to have time for her art work and vice versa.
Jane goes against the expected type by “refusing subservience, disagreeing with her superiors, standing up for her rights, and venturing creative thoughts” (Margaret, 1997, p. 325-346). She is not only successful in terms of wealth and position, but more importantly, in terms of family and love. These two needs that have evaded Jane for so long are finally hers. Adding to her victory is her ability to enjoy both without losing her hard-won independence. Everybody has the rights to pursue happiness, to pursue the true spirit of life, which can be seen from Jane Eyre’s struggle for independence and equality.
As Taylor begins this new chapter in her life she becomes selfless and more loving. Her new selflessness allows for Taylor to grow and change as she lives this new chapter in her life. Taylor care about herself about she also cares about Lou Ann just as much. Lou Ann is always putting herself down and is very insecure about her image. Taylor always tries “to be positive with her, although I’d learned that even compliments” seemed to be insulting to Lou Ann (103).
And this is what makes Glinda a more relatable character than what is seen on the surface. Her internal journey is revealed over the course of this song. This responsibility of having to pretend that she is against the “Wicked Witch” when she clearly knows the truth scares her more than actual wickedness because she knows she has to face her true self and not the persona she puts out there for people to see. Throughout the song Glinda is constantly trying to convince herself that she is happy and content with the way things have played out but it is only when she is left all alone that we truly see how making the choice of not leaving with Elphaba, the choice of doing what is expected of her and not what she truly wants, has completely destroyed
Initially Sophie was consumed by self standards that prohibited her from making any advancements in life. For example in the opening scene Sophie isn't as interested in Howl's Castle but more determined to make Pat. The determination towards her ambition are harmful when looking at her happiness, which later on Effexor mental stability. However the spell that is casted on her serve the purpose of removing the stigma of the supposedly eldest daughter. It's her a great person.
It captures beautiful preparations for the party, it is tiring, but the end of the result gives all delights. These are beautiful feelings and expectations of the final outcome of major planning.’ [..] she loved having to arrange things; she always felt she could do it so much better than anybody else.’ (Clay, 1984: 246) Laura is the one who likes to take all the responsibility.
Shug’s strong mind and independent attitude results in her assuming many roles for Celie. She is her confidant and takes on the maternal role for her. She even stands up to Mr.___ for her, depicting another example of where a character in this novel goes against the traditional patriarchal rules. Her courage to help and stand up for Celie is arguably one of the main influences for Celie’s transformation. She not only teachers Celie to love herself and others, but to realise that she does not have to accept to treatment she is given by men.
Hagar’s way of thinking about independence, personal goals and the capabilities of a woman were very innovative for the time. Being an educated and opinionated woman during this period was a threat that needed to be shut down by the dominant man. There was no place for an independent woman in society. Even though Hagar knew she could thrive on her own, constantly being told that she needed to be dependant on a man by not only her inner circle, but her society caused Hagar to feel inadequate or lost without a man to properly guide her. Eventually forcing woman like Hagar to become good house wives and live lives that they did not necessarily want for
Poverty deeply impacted Francie’s experiences as she matured, as it prevented her from having the nourishment that she needed. Her womanhood also brought difficulties that men were not faced with, resulting in Francie’s agonizing realization that her world was a man’s world. Her need for love as she grew was also influenced, because her parents, in truth, were not the guardians that she required. However, when faced with challenges, she persevered, and eventually achieved her dream of attending college. Francie’s story is one to be admired, for her determination to succeed, despite having the world turned against
As stated by Brent, “When I found that my master had actually begun to build the lonely cottage, other feelings mixed with those I have described” (Brent, A Perilous Passage in The Slave Girl’s Life). She was hinting at an occurrence between Dr. Flint and herself, where it seems that he was pressuring her into giving him her purity. It was hard for anyone to stay pure if they were always coerced or even forced to engage in any sexual
Macaul Mellor Many women decided to work in Mills in the 1900’s in order to gain wealth and give to their family. The ideas of the Mills gave a reassuring balance of work, opportunity, and pay to all the women, yet, these ideas were not always fulfilled. Many workers were unhappy with their working condition and the money they were granted. Each different statement reflects a different emotional voice: “Orestes Brownson Questions the Lowell System portrays pathos, “A Lowell Worker Defends the System portrays logos, and “A Worker’s Memories of the Mills” portrays ethos. Ethos gives the strongest voice because it gives the reader liability and experience in the Mills that is needed to truly understand the argument in which, “A worker’s Memories
Her “ache for attention” emphasized her need for attention was so strong it hurt her. Even in death Curley didn’t care for her, he wanted revenge more for his hand than his wife, dehumanising her as Lulu evoked more emotion when she died. She hurt because her dream was deemed insignificant from the beginning. Dreams give people’s lives meaning and without them life has no purpose. She’s always “heavily made up” as it gives her hope and allows her to cling on to her dream.
Also another thing that did not meet her expections are the passion and sexual freedom she was seeking. She pines for Robert and her dream of becoming an artist is short lived. Her new life is shattering every time she turns around. Even after leaving her duties of being a mother and wife society still controls her and what she can accomplish
