Miss Caroline should be a liked character with the occasional times where we are not fond of her. The time where she might not be as likeable is when she told Scout,”…to tell [her] father not to teach [her] as it would interfere with [her] reading. “(Lee 12). Even though this is a sign of inferiority toward Scout, we have to remember Miss Caroline is teaching a class of first graders. Miss Caroline, in
The theme of the Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls is forgiveness and unequivocal love in light of fact regardless of what her parents have done and what they put her through, she still adores them and wants to enable them to carry with a superior life. Parenting is a standout amongst the essential things in a kid 's life. It helps guides them through troublesome choice, deterrent and demonstrates to them the security the kids will aside from between a parent and kid, however, the Walls children did not experience that. On the other hand, they experience neglect, unsanitary living condition and hunger and poverty. Neglect was one of the key issues addressed in the memoir.

Scout wants to be herself and wear what she feels comfortable in. Scout finds in Miss Maudie a kinder spirit than Aunt Alexandra and it helps her make sense of being a female and helps her develop tolerance. Miss Maudie treats Scout in an adult manner unlike Aunt Alexandra, who treats Scout as if she doesn’t know anything about being a woman. It is almost certain that we are supposed to have tolerance towards other people’s values, even if we don’t
Jamaica Kincaid’s “Girl” is a very interesting story. In short it is about an unspecified guardian giving life advice to a young girl; the range of this advice varies from dress and grooming to medicinal recipes. The older woman, also referred to as the “guardian”, is not censored about this advice either. While people may think that “Girl” is a minor tale of verbal abuse, I prefer to think of it as story of tough love as well as hope that the girl will do better in life then the adult. At the outset the “guardian” starts spouting off their list of what seems like chores.
However, when she and Peeta unite later in the Games she displays more of a feminine and motherly caring role. Although, Katniss still provides both for Peeta and herself, encouraging the masculine role, she takes care of Peeta like a mother would their sick child. She lets her guard down around Peeta, and she plays up the showmance. Another example of Katniss’s femininity exposes itself when she decides to ally with Rue, the female tribute from District Eleven. Katniss takes on the protector role,
Atticus said: “She’s a faithful member of this family and you’ll have to simply accept things the way they are” (Lee 182), this reveals Atticus’ courage because he kept Calpurnia even though there are controversies of having an African American house member as shown by Alexandra. Another example of courage is that Atticus continues to read to Scout even with the disapproval of her teacher, Miss Fisher, this shows Atticus’ ability and courage to keep a strong bond with his children by reading despite the teacher saying that his ways of teaching was
(Mrs. Dubose in To Kill a Mockingbird is another character that is not who everyone thinks she is). Scout and Jem do not like Mrs. Dubose she yells and screams at them when they walk by her house: “Jem and I hated her. If she was on the porch when we passed, we would be ranked by her wrathful gaze” (132). Mrs. Dubose always had an angry tone and harsh remarks to say to the kids came into her view. A couple months after Jem’s punishment of reading to Mrs. Dubose ended, Atticus tells Jem that Mrs. Dubose has died.
Helen didn't respect Annie, she would throw spoons, eat off other’s plates, and try escaping, hiding, biting,stabbing her with a sewing needle. Annie had to try and not hit her back even though she did horrible things to her. Helen when her mom brought a new baby home she didn’t realize that the baby crate was there where it was sound asleep, and she knocked it over and it knocked the baby out of it and the crate landed on top of the baby. Her dad yelled at her and the other nanny grab helen and gave her a doll. Helen starts crying because her nanny throws her to show her what it feels like and picks her back up to comfort her.
Reacting in a way we’d expect someone her age to react when some one hurts you is stereotypical. Displaying anger and hurt when betrayed is a realistic response. Maryam is a static and realistic character. Journeying along side the girls she makes no major decisions, consistently acting as the stable mother figure. Eager to see the narrators’ mother at the beginning of the story, she responds with tears of happiness.
One more reason Calpurnia is a better mother figure is because she brings Jem and Scout up just a little harder than a mother would. Atticus says to Aunt Alexandra, “she’s never let them get away with anything, she’s never indulged them the way most colored nurses do. She tried to bring them up according to her lights, and Cal’s lights are pretty good” (Lee 183). This statement shows that by not letting them get away with anything she is trying to help form them into contributing members of society. This statement also shows Atticus’s trust in her raising his kids right, which is another reason why she is a good mother figure.
One examples of this is Aunt Alexandra. Aunt Alexandra hides her true self by nagging people and being strict. Even though she hides her true self, a few people like Atticus knows that she actually cares about her family more than nagging people and being strict. In the following quote, it will show how Aunt Alexandra was before she showed her true self to Miss Maudie and Scout. “She never lets a chance escape her to point out the shortcomings of other tribal groups to the greater glory of our own …” (page 172) In this quote, Scout is talking about how Aunt Alexandra doesn’t ever let a chance to nag people about how pure her family is and how impure their families are.
Overall, even though Scout and Skeeter’s moral beliefs contradict what other people think, they are not afraid to stand up and speak their minds. Both Scout and Skeeter are faced with discrimination against themselves and other people in their communities. Also both Scout and Skeeter have different views than the people around them. Skeeter is different from Scout because she has more control of her actions, as Scout is just a small girl and learning the right and wrong ways to handle things. Scout is faced with being on Tom Robinson’s side or the side of the rest of the town.
Not only is this quote beautiful and produces a strong emotional connection with James’ mother, it reveals a theme in the book. The theme that injustice will not prevail. And though James’ mother was aware that injustice existed, she did not accept it and become resentful, she instead valued her children and all the shades of color they contained, and relived her life through them. She was an old wooden table that
In To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee, Scout matures throughout the book as she matures her innocent nature is gradually lost and she realizes how senseless and brutal people can be. In the beginning she has still not seen any of the bad things people do in the world. Her innocence at is first shown when Dill asks Scout to marry him because they don’t now what marriage really is they both go along with it and say that they are married from then on. Another example of Scout’s innocence is when after she goes to school and gets in trouble she comes home and tells Atticus that she does not want to go to school anymore. She says that Burris Ewell only comes one day then goes home lie it would be a good thing to be a Ewell because you would not
