The steward assumed she is weak because she is a girl. Another prove that I have stated before is when the archbishop called her not a respectable woman. He stated that as if a girl dress like a soldier is something bad and new. They did not expect these kinds of attire and behavior from women. Because of the odd things Joan does, she was punished by being killed and burned to death.
Pauline believes Pecola is ugly, seeing the ugliness which she believed was in herself, in Pecola. This translates to the way she treats Pecola and in some ways, to the image that Pecola sees herself. In addition, Cholly Breedlove has his own violent backstory that leads to his anger and frustration with his life. Cholly’s own unfortunate experiences, such as being left in the trash by his
People belittle others so they don’t have to deal with themselves. Nevertheless, perception doesn’t only affect the way people deal with others, but how they act themselves, “Why-! The girl [Abigail] is murder! She must be ripped out of the world!” (Miller 72). Elizabeth’s loathing for the person she perceives Abigail to be has lead her to say things that she never would have before.
Greatest of The Guilty The character in The Crucible who was the most guilty for the events that transpired was Abigail Williams because of her sin of lechery that led to jealousy and damaged pride, her choice to lie rather than taking responsibility, and for judging good people as being hypocritical that had to be dealt with. As a result of Abigail’s lechery with John Proctor, she felt jealous towards Elizabeth Proctor and judged by the other townspeople. Her jealousy and pride made people targets during the witch trials. When talking to John she states, “She is blackening my name in the village! She is telling lies about me!
In her case, she is unrealistically evil. First, Madame Defarge lacks sympathy. When Lucie begs for Madame Defarge to show mercy and compassion towards Darnay, Madame Defarge coldly responds, “Is it likely that the trouble of one wife and mother would be much to us now?” (Dickens 249). Madame Defarge completely dismisses Lucie, denoting her utter lack of sensitivity towards anyone associated with her enemies and making it clear that she only feels hatred and animosity towards them. In addition, Madame Defarge harbors intense feelings of vengeance towards the aristocrats, especially the Evrémondes.
Therefore to Hamlet the marriage was unlawful, and he is consequently disgusted by his Mother’s actions, which he considers disloyalty to both him and his father. His revulsion towards his mother’s marriage is stressed further as in the quotation ‘She married. O most wicked speed, to post with such dexterity to incestuous sheets!’ his sibilant tongue emphasises his abhorrence towards
Europeans depict women as weaklings, so they tend to view them as “disgusting” (Walker 2). Sycorax is a prime example of this set image. The reality that Sycorax is kicked out of her home because she wants to learn, shows that women in that era were shown no respect and they still are not. Caliban utters, “This island’s mine by Sycorax” (i.ii.332), in which represents that his mother was the owner, but shown no respect, Prospero takes over. Comparably, Iram can relate to Sycorax, because according to the article, Iram was treated as a “prisoner” (Walker).
Medea’s choice of killing her children in her own home is a very heartless, harmful decision that would impose unlimited pain on both her and Jason. In order to achieve maximum possible vengeance, she must flee before her enemies can punish her for her outrage (Segal 17). Her decision to murder her children rids her of the typical motherly image society stamps on women. She portrays more masculine qualities through her behavior and actions, which are very alien traits
I wanted to know. She 's dead, Wangero said. I couldn 't bear it any longer, being named after the people who oppress me. (Walker 318) Although Wangero uses the oppression of her people as a reason to reject her roots.

“For the horrors of troy when they are the guilty ones they who destroy”(lines 30-33).Why this is relevant in our society is because people be like Eris. Because she blamed the Gods and Goddesses for her doing. Or like the “From Black Ships” “Eris,the goddess of discord, had been left out because wherever she went she brought trouble with her.” (paragraph 2).Where they didn 't invite her only because she is the goddess of discord. And that 's how people act just cause they don 't like someone or they bring a childish fight doesn 't mean they can not come. “Let us not dwell on things that are past”(lines 52-53).
