Ruth lived a very sad life with her father, she admire the Black folks they were poor but they appeared happy. Ruth states, “If there was one thing Tateh didn’t like more than gentiles, it was black folks”(McBride 107). Tateh hated black folks so much that after Ruth married Dennis James’ father a black man, he disowned her. Keeping that a secret was better off for her kids but James wanted to know where was his mother from, who was her family, so James went to Suffolk, Virginia where his mother was raised. To find out that his grandfather was a racist, horrible person.
After eleven years of an unhappy marriage Myrtle sees her affair with Tom as an escape from the awful like she is living in. The fact that she knows so little about the upper class men and the poor judgement of her character makes her an easy target for Tom to take advantage of her. Although she finally buys everything that she desired for, she never could have Tom’s heart all to herself. Tom would rather not leave Daisy because their marriage represents a larger meaning than only love it almost a symbol that show their social status. "Daisy!
Désirée denies the accusation. Armand, scornful of Désirée, rejects her and insists that she leaves. She takes their child and walks off into a bayou, never to be seen again. Armand burns all of the letters that she had sent him during their courtship. With this bundle of letters is also one written from his mother to his father, saying, “ night and day, I thank the good God for having so arranged our lives that our dear Armand will never know that his mother, who adores him, belongs to the race that is cursed with the brand of slavery “ (5) revealing that Armand is the one who is part black, by his mother 's ancestry (Chopin).
This play takes place in 1957 where the African American society was still facing discrimination from the white population. Troy has had to endure some pretty tough situations in life and all of these events have created the personality he has today. He is a man of great pride and this is evident when Bono confronts Troy about cheating on his wife. A characteristic he most likely learned from his father who had no respect for women. Troy doesn’t want to admit it to Bono that he is cheating because in the beginning he is denying it.
The irony of this short story was that it was Armand who was of mixed raced and not his wife. He was the one who tainted the baby, he found out after fining a letter from his beloved mother that was written to his father (Chopin). Irony is a surprising interesting twist at the end on a story. I am sure that after he read this letter that he soon figured out why his father was so kind to the slaves and how it was wrong of him to treat his wife the way he did and immediately regretted his choices. Thus, she was no longer there and he could not get her back, he thought she went back to live with her stepmother, and if he goes to look for her or the stepmother went to look for her and the child they would both find that Desiree never went to her original destination.
The harsh tempo helps demonstrate how rebellious Pattyn is feeling and how fed up she is with being ignored and abused. When Pattyn is at her place of residence, she feels very alone unless she talks to her sister Jackie. No child should ever feel like they are unwanted, and their home is not a home. Thankfully her dad came to his senses and sent Pattyn to live with his sister. "I Melt" performed by Rascall Flatts (Songwriters: Joe Neil Thrasher, Jr.) (Link to
George, on the other hand, is a passionate and faithful husband to Myrtle and is crushed to learn that she was cheating on him so much so that he assassinates Gatsby whom he thinks was cheating with myrtle and murdered to get rid of the evidence of his adultery. Tom Buchanan is an arrogant, controlling man, who does what he wants not considering about how his actions influence those around him. Tom is also the earliest person to use physical violence in the book, striking Myrtle in a fit of rage when she would not stop shouting Daisy 's name. "Some time toward midnight Tom Buchanan and Mrs. Wilson stood face to face discussing, in impassioned voices, whether Mrs. Wilson had any right to mention Daisy 's name."Daisy! Daisy!
Chopin, wanted the reader to feel exactly how she felt about people being so racist. Armand, didn’t want to accept the baby because of the color of its skin, but little did he know it was because of him. He had owned a plantation in which his own mother was from. He was a part of the people that he had owned and treated like such crap. I feel like he should have
The Bluest Eye is a story about a girl named Pecola and her life story in a society where she is at the bottom of a scale. The story explains how she got impregnated by her father called the seed. Also how her baby never grew and ended up dying and also what she went through as a child never being able to reach the beauty standards of society.

For example when a young boy (“Teapot”) comes to her house and falls down the steps, the mother of the child blamed Sula for the boy’s injuries and then starting taking care of the child for the first time. Here once again we are shown how Sula is made into the scapegoat. Later after Sula’s death the women no longer cherish and want to take care of their children so they abandon them once again. (Morrison, page. 113-115, 117) In the case of Sula, this ironically replicates the sexual shaming of African American women in slavery.
In my visual, I have incorporated black silhouettes of the characters in the poem as they are unknown and we are only being told that a mother is being destroyed by the birth of her three children. “Someone she loved once passed by- too late” this quote says how she has changed to someone who only lives because of her children. Her ex- boyfriend has been lost amongst her role as a mother and she has become some different until she meets a past lover. The theme ‘loss of identity’ is explored in this stanza because this unknown woman doesn’t know who she is anymore or how to think about being a
Edna has found her new found freedom by moving out of her big house she shared with her husband into a smaller house for herself. She is still trapped by her feeling s for Robert. He comes to visit her for the last time; Edna leaves Robert at her house and told him to wait for her. When she got back, Robert wasn’t there and left her a note, “I love you. Good-by –because I love you.” (Chopin, p148) which caused Edna to commit suicide because she realized she was not happy without her kids and society wouldn’t accept her because she left her husband.
In the 26th chapter of the book, Huck and the reader know that the con-characters aren 't actually the Wilks ' missing uncle. When the con- men meet the family, the family weeps over them because they believe they are actually family. This is dramatic irony, because the family 's and the reader’s perception of the duke are very different. The white people justified slavery in America by stating that blacks did not love their family like white person can whites implying that blacks don 't have deep feelings like the whites.For example, Twain uses Jim and Pap to make his point. In addition, Pap is Huck 's real white father, but he is worst alcoholic fathers anyone can ever have.
A year after Diana’s death she was not forgotten but acknowledged in different ways. In the article Time, Anne-Marie O’Neill and Kim Hubbard published an article on A Lesson in Loss. The article quotes “Her grieving ex-husband was touched the most by her death, Charles is the one showing the effects of his loss.” Charles is now the good guy who is the single parent. He only helped Diana get famous with his cheating, but she suffered because of him. Diana’s life might have been like a soap opera because her marriage was not perfect, she had to share the husband with the mistress and the queen did nothing about it.
