This could be assumed, due to human nature. The Puritans might believe in perfection but it is definite that, even though she might have thought differently before, Hester does not believe that everybody is perfect. Hester not only gains intuition on strangers but also on the ones closest to her. Throughout her daughter’s life, Hester notices Pearl’s demonic traits. They are not necessarily traits of Pearls, but rather a state of being.
Ts’ai Yen and Maxine have similar stories and Maxine notes that “It translated well”(209). ‘Translating’ is taking an idea from one language, or culture, and moving it to another language or culture without losing the idea’s meaning. The story of Ts’ai Yen was a translation of Maxine’s struggle. Both Maxine and Ts’ai Yen lived in culture that was not their own. As a result, they grew lonely and lost their sense of identity.
She constantly seeks reassurance and acceptance of her two navels. Yet she understands how most people find this idea unnatural and repulsive, attempting to arrange for an operation to get one of her navels removed, but stops, realizing that living in her illusion provided her with more “safety and happiness” than what living in reality did. She initially resolves to permanently live in her illusions: in the context of escaping reality and the troubles that come with it, Connie continues to evade the problems that chase her (her mother Concha and her husband Macho). It is worth noting though, that Connie succeeds in escaping her problems, as in the time span of the novel, Connie never physically meets Concha or Macho, the two major sources of her problems. This then corroborates Connie’s idea of escaping reality as an effective solution (at face value) to dealing with her
Maxine Hong Kingston's use of talk stories in The Woman Warrior emphasizes that individuals will find a more fulfilling life if they defy the traditional gender norms place on them by society. While contemplating beauty standards in Chinese society in “No Name Woman” Maxine Kingston thinks, “Sister used to sit on their beds and cry together… as their mothers or their slaves removed the bandages for a few minutes each night and let the blood gush back into their veins” (9). From a young age girls are expected to be binding their feet and are told that it is to look beautiful, but in reality that is not why. When a womans feet are bound they are restrained and silenced. These girls could be free and happy but they are restrained by men through this binding.
Men also assumed women were not smart enough to work in government. Men brainwashed women into thinking that they were not eligible (smart enough) to work in government. They feared that women politicians would make make a bias vote against all the men to vote them out. They feared that women’s votes
Women have always been seen as inferior and the fact that men only see them as a way for pleasure, they’re seen as inferior. Milkman once respected his mother, and he saw her as much more, but then he fell into the way it “should be”. Women are weak; women aren’t capable of much. There’s no such thing as a strong independent woman. At least that’s what it was thought to be.
By giving Luna the credit over Cho, it is shown that there are white gaze among Harry Potter world. Cho Chang was definitely not a fan favourite. On the other hand Luna is this quirky girl that’s always there to help Harry, and she’s one of the most loved character in Harry Potter. By Rowling’s Decision to push away Cho Chang, she makes Cho look useless and making many more people dislike her. By comparing her and Luna we can see that when she is compared to Luna, she is much more worthless to Harry than her.
Because her life is uneventful, she lives vicariously through books lets her imagination run free with the stories in them. She creates her own reality with these works of fiction, which puts a barrier between her and actual reality. She ends the list of quotes by saying “That a young woman in love always looks “like Patience on a monument ‘Smiling at Grief’” (18). This portrays Catherine’s tendency to shape the words to her liking, regardless of what the actual meaning is behind the text. She shows a lack of understanding of the metaphors and language, yet she simultaneously over thinks the work by taking it and applying it to her own life.
This is important and ties back to feminism because they state that women are less of men and could not overtake them. When detectives asked her questions, she stated her alibi and an officer went to the grocer. The grocer stated, “...acted quite normal… very cheerful...wanted to give him a good supper... peas...cheesecake...impossible that she…” (Dahl 7).
After watching the video Art 21. I deeply agree with Wodiczko’s comment on how people feel more comfortable talking to strangers through the beauty of art, than to talk to love one’s about personal and painful experiences in person. The idea of sharing your story through a monument is an amazing idea because it allows people to speak out and express themselves about the several issues that we as a society are afraid to talk about for the fear of being judged, treated differently or even harassed by the media. One projection that stood out to me was the Tijuana projection that gave a deep insight on what young girls go through in their culture and the emotional pain each and one of them go through. These girls were brave enough to shared their stories with an audience that was interesting in listening to their pain and suffering behind a monument that gave them the courage to speak out.
She thought that he mad at her for not giving birth to more children, even though that wasn’t what he was mad about it still made her feel bad. She couldn’t buy anything to make her give birth, however, he could get something to bear more children, another women. 7. “It is useless for you to beat the lad as you do. I have seen this thing come upon the young lords in the courts of the great house, and it came on them melancholy, and when it came the old lord found slaves for them if they had not found any for themselves and the thing passed easily…
She laugh’s it off when her kids disrespect her, and her husband is not there half the time Callie , on the other hand is poor, and her kids have some mental problem. Her son was on medication but she didn’t like him being on it because it makes him violent, so she indulges him, letting
In the passage “Fish Cheeks” by Amy Tan she talks about her Chinese heritage and her love life. The theme of this story is no matter how much a person tries to change how they are viewed on the outside, they will always be the same person on the inside. They have to be proud of what and who they are. So many things can make a narrative interesting and entertaining to a reader. This piece mostly contained concrete imagery.
Flirting is like a game of chess, one wrong move and it is all over. Just like Curley’s wife who does not really think through what she is getting into. In this novel, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck; Curley’s wife has really beautiful looks and wears makeup and at the ranch she is always causing trouble. She is an outcast in the ranch, and she is desperate to get attention.
