The narrator goes on to say “ I wish john would take me away from here… it is so hard talking with john about my case, because he is so wise, and because he loves me so.” Women were not known to have have a voice in the 1800’s they had to do what the men said most of the time. She really has been trying to get away for her mental health, but John never lets her leave in fear that she was not well yet. John pitied his wife and whenever she told him something he would try to convince her that his way was right cause he is the doctor. John says “ why darling… our lease is up in three weeks, and I can’t see how to leave before.” When she tells John how she feels, he basically goes around the question since “ John knows best.” John has most definitely depressed her even more then she was at the
When Sally got married she thought that she will escape from her abusive father and finally get her freedom that she had dreamed about before. Little did she know, her husband would be as protective as her father was over her, so eventually she had given up every aspect of her freedom. Looking out of the window was one of her last hopes and pleasures that she had but Sally’s husband didn’t allow her to do that either. Sally says that “She is afraid to go outside without his permission”(Cisneros, page 102). In this vignette, you could tell that Sally’s husband was the one that prevented Sally from having any freedom, which caused Sally to feel like she was trapped in some kind of a
She states that maybe all the family members are actually on the trip and the loneliness is only imagined (Sinor, 2008). She questions the reality and begins to wonder whether the expressions made by her uncle are actually the truth. I found this section quite challenging and I had to reread it several times to ensure that it was just speculation. At one point, I thought that the author’s uncle did not actually die and that this story was imagined. However, in the end, I understood that the narrator was only searching for comfort and that the realization that her uncle was dead was difficult for her to accept, hence the confusion between reality and illusion.
The treatment he suggested was rest therapy which made the matter even worse. The women listen to her husband shifts to a new house even though she did not believe in the treatment her husband has suggested for her. This paper would bring forth a concerning topic regarding gender suppression that was common during Gilman’s time. Gilman talks about the gender discrimination and dominance of male due to the norms created by the society. The narrator’s husband imposed his own thinking on his wife without even considering to take his wife wishes and opinion into account.
Her reaction leaves him puzzled, because he is not used to that from her. Later on, he wonders “if his wife were not growing a little unbalanced mentally” (ch. 19). He knew one Edna, and the way she behaves is now foreign to him; he identified her only in the role of his wife, true Edna was a stranger to him. “He could not see that she was becoming herself and daily casting aside that fictitious self which we assume like a garment with which to appear before the world” (ch.
She married her husband out of what she felt was an obligation to her husband to repay him for fighting in World War II. Even though she got two children out of the marriage, she is still not happy with her family life. Laura feels that if she were to life the life she actually wanted, the people around her would judge her and that her family would disown her. Eventually she gets so unhappy that she contemplates suicide. On page 151, the narrator says, “It is possible to die.
This realization causes her to start making changes within herself. One of these changes included finding a new sense of confidence that allows her to take a stand against her husband. ‘”Are you coming in Léonce?” she asked turning her face toward her husband.’ (Chopin, 35) Although she made such a change, Edna did not realize she was not strong enough to completely go against society and her husband. Edna is also growing tired of having to fight against society and others that are trying to take advantage of her. According to the novel, in chapter twenty-six, Alcée Arobin, one of Edna’s love affairs, starts to take advantage of her when she is too tired to fight him off and stand up for herself.
Mrs.Peters, losing her first child, understands the meaning of a loss. In addition, Mrs.Peter also understands what Mrs.Hale means when she says that women "all go through the same things" (Glaspell 1046). To sum up, the women in "Trifles" cannot be trifled with. Although Susan Glaspell wrote "Trifles" a long time ago, it continues to be similar to modern day relationships between men and women. "Trifles" feminist perspective provides a convincing case for the necessity of women to move beyond descriptive stereotypes and oppressive assumptions in order to be true to their own significant
