In the passage “My Favorite Chaperone” by Jean Davies Okimoto, the characters, Maya, Nurzhan, Mama, and Papa experience challenges in a new country. These challenges include difficulty adapting to a new culture, difficulty communicating with others, and lack of respect from others. Through all of this the family members show empathy for one another, even though some don’t understand why things are done the way they are. In the passage Nurzhan is bullied by Ossie,because he has an accent and mispronounces English words. Nurzhan gets fed up with Ossie and starts to fight him.
He goes on about how he is different when it comes to discipline compared to the iron fist of Sister Aloysius. He seems almost too focused on coming up with excuses for why he is abnormally close with Donald. His actions make him seem very skeptical about his intentions and actions in regards to Donald Muller. Father Flynn then goes and talks to Sister James separately to talk with her about the accusations. By talking to Sister James alone, Father Flynn not only broke the rules but also seems suspicious.
Lastly, in both texts, the narrators have completely different views than their parents, and because of these disagreements, the narrator feels completely neglected by their parents, further fortifying any tension that had been there initially. Therefore, in Diana Lopez’s novel, Confetti Girl and Jennifer Cervantes’ novel, Tortilla Sun, the narrators have different points of view than that of their parents, causing tension when the narrator disagrees with her Father in not liking English, when Izzy claims that going to New Mexico is more of an opportunity for her Mother than for her, while her mother believes different, and when the two narrators both feel neglected by their parents because they have such different views than
Another way familial corruption is caused by the absence of fathers is portrayed by Shakespeare and Williams is through the characterization of the family members left behind. In The Glass Menagerie, Amanda Wingfield lives in the shadow of her past and is obsessed with the idea of gentlemen callers for her daughter. This concern for her daughter is rooted more in Amanda’s own interest, however, and has a detrimental effect on their relationship. “Once we analyse how Amanda manipulates maternity, a factor more fundamental than nostalgia will begin to emerge. This principle is self-consciousness.” (Levy).
Lear said awful things to his daughter about an evil child. At this point he leaves and then the next scene shows the daughters meeting and holding hands. They are allying one and another versus the king. They have the king where they want them. Lear is the one who cannot control people and other people are being very ratical with him.
Jack is trying to make sense of this new world and turns to his mother for answers; however, her answers often prove unsatisfactory to the boy. (47) Viewing the novel as only a story of psychological trauma and suffering however would be too one-dimensional a view of it. Also something all major criticism on the novel has glossed over or has not delved
For instance, she had to pledge, judge, and urge for the separation to not take place because it would affect them both equally. As evidence, “He looked now more careworn and emaciated than as we described him at the scene of Hester 's public ignominy” that indicates how Hester was put forth once again by the public for the same sin that was committed. However, the second it was far more important because she was fighting for her daughter, Pearl’s hostility. Hester is shown at a low and vulnerable position in her life once again which could quickly be mistaken for weakness, that not exactly being the case because she is known to overcome her huge opticals. To many the way, Hawthorne characterizes Hester Prynne it may be complicated, but considering that her character has gone through a lot it is made clear that the character is not being dramatic but
Sheila and Eric both feel guilty about themselves during the interrogations, when their parents tried to deny the fact that they were responsible too. This is evidently shown in Act Three, as Sheila says, “I behaved badly too. I know I did. I am ashamed of it.” The evocative verb, “ashamed” expresses Sheila’s acceptance of her responsibility of Eva Smith’s death. This shows us the contrast between the younger and older generations and their thoughts about the theme of
This also represents how the couple is acting irrational due to conflict. Since they break the flowerpot recklessly, it shows how they are not thinking about what they are doing, and do not realize the effects of their actions. This is due to the couple becoming filled with the desire of wanting the baby, they become recklessness and obliviousness. Through actions of the characters, Carver reveals significant character qualities of the mother and the father, which ultimately reveals the theme of Popular Mechanics. In an exchange between the couple, the mother “tried to hold the baby over in a corner behind the stove” and both the father and mother “grabbed for the baby’s arm” in an attempt to have the baby.
Nora is a married woman and has children to take care of. She really has little freedom because of the way Torvald treats her. She is not even I feel as if deep down she knows she is not free and wants something more in her life then to be a entertaining puppet for Torvald. She realizes at the end of the story that Torvald is not good to her because of the way he acted when she told him about forging the signature. When Torvald called her a criminal and other harsh words she realized that she had no true love from Torvald and wanted to be free from him.
She is “frightened” about how her parents start talking after they realise that this could’ve been all of a hoax. She and Eric are the only characters that really learnt a lesson throughout the play as they know that even though that this was a hoax the possibility of something like this happening again were high if they didn’t change their ways. The word “frightened” shows to the audience that she is shocked on how her parents seem to think of it all as a joke that was planned by them. Here there is a visible divide between the old and the young because the old, Mr and Mrs Birling still stuck on their arrogant and capitalistic views whereas the young, Sheila and Eric understand that there needs to be a change otherwise they would be in deep trouble. The author could’ve purposefully done this to highlight how corrupt and unhealthy the capitalistic views and families were.
Rosemary is a victim of the fluctuating views that her parents and grandparents hold because it adds to the confusion and self doubt that she possesses about her family throughout the novel. Because Rosemary gets different perspectives from two separate generations, her vision of what an American family should be comprised of is heavily disoriented. This situation primes Rosemary to have a different perspective on what her family should be, which ultimately just adds to the confusion of being raised in a different generation. The problem with being raised by two generations is that both outlooks are shared, and where they contrast with each other can lead to even further confusion. There is an inconsistent view being enforced and imposed upon
