Gene is alone in his thoughts as no one supports him, not even his wife. He is ridiculed, harshly judged and discriminated for both his race and his idea of freedom and equality in society during that time frame. Tessie Hutchinson has ideas that no one else in her community agree with and she is sent to her death sentence. In both cases, the main characters are criticized and at many risks for expressing their intellectual freedom; that comes to show that in these short story universes, revealing individual thoughts and actions can lead to unfortunate circumstances and disastrous
Even though she did a horrible thing, accusing an innocent man of rape and getting him killed, she did it because she was scared. Mayella Ewell deserves to have some sympathy, she is beaten, she is poor, she was compelled to lie about Tom because of her father. Bob Ewell is a very horrible and grungy man. He beats his kids, especially Mayella. There
“You don 't like anything. You are the most depressed person I 've ever met, and excuse me for saying this, but you are no fun to be around and I think you need professional help.” (Anderson 105) This example clearly shows that there is conflict between Melinda’s and Heather 's relationship. This is because Melinda wants better friends, friends who aren 't depressed and boring to be around. “I push hard enough to raise one drop of blood.” (Anderson 195) This example exhibits tension between Melinda and Andy Evans. This is because Andy Evans is trying to rape Melinda and Melinda for once fights back against her own Nightmare.
This poem is one written in a mocking tone. The speaker desires to belittle the memory of her father, as it had been the source of much anguish during her life. She wants to remove him from her memory or reduce the effect that his memory has on her life. She uses the aforementioned allusions to emphasize the extensive conflict between her and her monstrous
A similarity between the feelings he has for unoka and ojiugo is anger, at one point in the story. This tells me that okonkwo is aggressive and impatient. In the story, Okwonkwo is unsympathetic. Okwonkwo is unsympathetic because i can’t understand his reasoning for beating ojiugo. There was no good reason for him to hit her.
Niña was having a bad day, if being groped in a convenience store by an entitled white man and having your friend ask you if you “asked for it” can be called as one. What frustrated her the most was that some people still believed in the sick fetishization of the “Submissive Asian Woman” and were surprised to see her stand up for herself. No one ever defended her when perverted men were harassing her. These did not happen very often, but when they did, they usually left Niña feeling angry and hopeless. She felt tremendous rage at how women were constantly objectified by a racist patriarchal society and hopeless at a change ever occurring.
“‘I don’t like it, Atticus, I don’t like it at all,’ was Aunt Alexandra’s assessment of these events. ‘That man seems to have a permanent running grudge against everybody connected with that case. I know how that kind are about paying off grudges, but I don’t understand why he should harbor one—he had his way in court, didn’t he?’” (335) From intruding a judge’s house to humiliating and harassing Helen Robinson, Bob Ewell is consistently intimidating Maycomb. Atticus is not a perfect character because he doesn’t realize that his weakness is not believing that Bob is mistreating the town. C. Atticus underrated Bob Ewell’s animosity and his violent temper although he won the
Sometimes, truth can be so hurting that it becomes impossible to bear, especially if it carries some elements of shame and guilt. However, a responsible person should accept their mistakes and do whatever it takes to rectify the errors, and even ask for forgiveness. On the other hand, evil people will always fight truth and never want it to be revealed. Troy, in this play, is a replica of a wrong person whose actions and character has caused suffering to other people. When truth dawns upon him, he feels terrible and intensifies his acts of building fences around himself because he never gives his family a chance of knowing and understanding him.
Dimmesdale knew that his choice to step back and allow Hester to bear all the punishment was not morally just, and that choice forever ate at him until he revealed his true self. As the guilt grew stronger, he grew sicker and weaker. He was so afraid to ruin his reputation that he would rather suffer in silence. Hawthorne states, “…all the dread of public exposure, that had so long been the anguish of his life, had returned upon him; and he was already trembling at the conjunction in which- with a strange joy, nevertheless-he now found himself.”(140). Dimmesdale became lost within his identity due to the self-inflicted shame and guilt, and he finally came to the conclusion that he would be healthier if he came forward and revealed himself.
Macbeth begins to feel guilty for even imagining the murder of King Duncan when he says “heat of deeds”. Here, Macbeth’s insecurity and lacking of self-confidence display his traits of negative femininity. In fact, his feminine side gets him so emotionally fraught that he has to run off to Lady Macbeth because he is unable to finish off the plan on his own. He fully depends on Lady Macbeth for giving him confidence and telling him what to do. He lacks self-confidence because he knows
Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51). Andy Evans, the senior who raped her, made her feel worthless. This situation is much like the one in the novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.

Fern or herself. She is painted as a very restless and willful woman who is appalled by the laws that were set for her by men. Her confusion is seen in the beginning of the article when she reads about Emma Wilson, a member of her town being arrested for wearing men’s clothing, “Now, why this should be an actionable offense is past my finding out, or where’s the harm in it, I am as much at a loss to see” (Parton 1750). The reader is able to see how uncomfortable she is with the fact that this happened to Wilson and that she does not stand for the oppression of herself or the women around her. It is seen very early on that Mrs. Fern is a very non-conservative member of her community and that she yearns to make a change.
Considering the many different literary devices used in creating writing, I have chosen several distinct elements, setting, theme, point of view and characterization. These particular devices are essential elements in my toolkit. As a realistic fiction writer the four elements serve a purpose and together they should craft an interesting story. As a result, my first important foundational tool is setting. If the writer cannot capture the reader 's attention through the creative backdrop, settings, then the foundation is not buildable and my story may be weak and uninteresting.
