He is a coach and a Language Arts teacher. Redmond had not allowed Shelly on the basketball team because she was too aggressive. Shelly’s caseworker, Jim Avery, helped Shelly by going up against Redmond. He tried to get Redmond to reconsider politely at first, but Redmond wasn’t going to allow this. While Shelly was describing this to Bo, she said: “Redmond said that after he saw how willing I was to mix it up, he had requested my records and decided he couldn’t afford to have someone poisoning the team’s morale…” (140) This made her have an emotional break down, steal her mother’s car, and drive one hundred miles an hour down the freeway before it flipped over and rolled off the road.
In the play The Crucible, the character John Proctor has a conflict with himself of maintaining his reputation and not ruining his own name. To begin, in act 1 John Proctor had a conversation with Abigail where she remembered him the affair but Proctor tried to maintain a position saying “I will cut off my hand before I’ll ever reach you again”(Miller 23) and when she kept talking about Proctor’s wife, he got upset and end with a “do you looking for whippin?”(Miller 24). This shows us that Proctor doesn’t want to remember this event that could ruin his reputation or relationship with his wife. Second, in Act 2 Elizabeth told Proctor to go testify against Abigail and prove that they were lying ,Proctor just answered with a “I’ll think on it”(Miller 53) and admitting
The House on Mango Street shows that the basis of violence and poverty are social inequality. This social inequality limits lower class from getting employed. The neighbourhood in the novel is impoverished because of the inequality in their society. The House on Mango Street shows that women are sexually abused, not having the opportunity to receive the same amount of education as men and have unequal contributions to the workforce.
Giles knew his reputation would be shattered if he gave up one or more of his friends for his own safety. Cory’s dignity and pride also would not allow him to respond yes or no to an accusation saying he practiced witchcraft. Giles decided not to give the court any satisfaction for his arrest by giving in to the accusations or denying them and hanging for it. Either way he could have answered would have killed him, morally or physically, so he didn’t answer. He knew good and well that his actions would land him with a
That’s not to even clarify the action of him hurting Alice because all she could say is no. This was only the beginning of the wrath to come in the next decade. Yet, people knew about how he felt towards Alice and nobody stood up for her due to her skin color and her classification at the time to be “property.” Consequently, shouldn’t property—land, human being, whatever—be kept to the best of our abilities. We don’t treat brand new BMW’s like an off road vehicle because the car isn’t made for off-roading and we sure as hell do not rape a teacher because we feel like we can take better care of her than her husband; brutally
But as soon as he quit his job and walked out side they were gone. “There wasn’t anybody but some young married screaming with her children about some candy they didn’t get by the door of a powder-blue Falcon station wagon,” said Sammy in Updike’s text. No one or nobody would want to disrespect their parents… besides Sammy. Lastly, Sammy disrespected his parents and his boss Lengel. He disrespected his boss because when he quit he left his boss to be the cashier.
Society forcefully imposes their misogynistic views upon every citizen so that there may be order and structure. Creole norms give no leeway for actions so that there remains no uncertainty concerning acceptable actions. “The Doctor would have like during the course of conversation to ask, ‘Is there any man in the case?’ but he knew his Creole too well to make such a blunder as that” (Chopin 64). The doctor does not dare to question Edna’s faithfulness because Creole norms demand women remain faithful to their husbands, as they do not have the right to divorce.
Within the book, there are instances which state that women can’t/won’t do a certain task/thing because of reason/excuse. One example of this is when Scout asked Atticus, the Finch’s father, about why people in Maycomb couldn’t sit in the jury stand and mentioned Miss Maudie, a gentle woman who never lets others forget her thorns, Atticus replied, “For one thing, Miss Maudie can't serve on a jury because she's a woman-" (188). He says the reason for this is, “I guess it's to protect our frail ladies from sordid cases like Tom's. "(188) and also that he, “...doubt(s) if we'd ever get a complete case tried—the ladies'd be interrupting to ask questions. "(188).
While the prostitutes may look like Pecola, they do not think like her. Pecola’s family “wore their ugliness, put it on, so to speak, although it did not belong to them” (38). Her whole family falls victim to the mask of ugliness placed upon them by their economic status and race. Her parents accept their ugliness and teach it to Pecola, who accepts her ugliness without question. Pecola “hid behind hers.
So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported. To sum it all up, Esperanza went from riches to rags, bratty to well behaved, and from not working at all to working very hard thanks to her experiences throughout the book. Looks like being poor was more beneficial than being rich. I think kids nowadays could learn a thing or two from Esperanza about working hard, not having an attitude, and respecting/ helping people not as wealthy as
“Your Excellency, I only said she were reading books, sir, and they come and take her out of my house for.” Giles won’t tell the name of who told him the information that the girls are lying, because he doesn’t want to cause them to go to jail or be hanged. “I cannot give you no name, sir, I cannot.” Giles is not wanting to be responsible for his family losing the family land and belongings Elizabeth is saying. “He were not hanged.
In fact, he never even met his father. And not trying to go out of line here, but I imagine his mother was probably a prostitute, because back in those days it was frowned upon to fornicate before marriage. People were still very religious. In 1775 the American Revolution had begun, and Jackson was prone to violence. He despised the British Empire.
While this is hypothetical, it fits with the concept of the utilitarian approach as the “potential good” becomes the focus of the argument as proponents argue for a reduction in guns through gun
Joe goes as far as to ordering her what to wear when he says,” Her hair was NOT going to show in the store. It didn’t seem sensible at all. That was because Joe never told Janie how jealous he was”(55).Joe is concerned about other men admiring his wife because he is afraid that Janie will no longer listen to him, and then leave him. It is very important to Joe that he possesses complete ownership and dominance over Janie, so when Janie resists, Joe becomes worried. When Joe couldn’t find the order for the pig’s feet, he says, ”You ain’t put it where Ah told yuh tuh.
The conflict in the story is that when the Walls meet up at their grandmother’s house and their dad gets in a lot of verbal fights with her. Another conflict is that they are running away from the government. The Walls were traveling because there dad (even though he was really smart) did not keep jobs well, so they moved and tried to find gold. Their dad
