He places her in the nursery of the colonial mansion, despite her requests to be placed otherwise, “I don 't like our room a bit. I wanted one downstairs... but John would not hear of it” (Gilman, 2). The narrator’s husband dictates all aspects of her life to the point where she internalizes her husband 's authority, accepting his dominance over her, “I sometimes fancy that in my condition if I had less opposition and more society and stimulus—but John says the very worst thing I can do is think about my condition, and I confess it always makes me feel bad,” (Gilman, 2). Even though the narrator knows what she needs is to be active surrounded by people instead of cooped up alone in a house out in the countryside, she abruptly stops her train of thought as she remembers John’s instructions to not think about her condition. Connie and the narrator in “The Yellow Wallpaper” are both vulnerable and victims of circumstance.
Valencia portrays the average housewife and the general unhappiness of married couples. Edgar Derby shows how wars bring out the worst in people, and Bertram Rumfoord is symbolic of the apatheticness of officials who hold power. They are indifferent to how the consequences of their actions affect helpless citizens, and do not view the masses as ‘human’. Vonnegut’s intent in adding these symbolic roles is to deepen the meaning of the novel and to further carry the message of the theme to the reader. Valencia, who epitomizes the average housewife, also represents the unexpressed discontentment of many married couples.
To begin, the lack of financial stability in the Walls family has always been problematic, however as the mother of her children, Rose Mary never contributed much to the family income due to her stubbornness and free-spirited nature. A prime example of Rose Mary not providing for her family is a constant lack of food in the house. The children’s hunger is apparent when Jeannette says, “We did eat less. Once we lost our credit at the commissary, we quickly ran out of food. Sometimes Dad’s odd jobs would come through, or he’d win some money gambling, and we’d eat for a few days.
She also got on Mr. Dussell’s nerves by taking too much time in their room and not letting him in. Compare Anne and Margot. Do their differences ever cause
The major flaw Beowulf showed in the movie was that he slept with Grendel’s mother. I think that because Beowulf slept with someone it lessened his standing as a hero, in my mind. Another flaw that Beowulf showed was that he was arrogant in the movie. I can overlook the fact that a hero is not perfectly sculpted or good looking. I think to be a hero you cannot have personality flaws like being self-centered or conceited.
Montag feels so terribly sad and feels that books might help and Mildred is appalled by this. They think completely different on this subject showing the contrast between the two. Finally, when Montag shows up at his house when on a the job with Beatty he asks “was it my wife turned in the alarm?” (Bradbury 62). Beatty tells him that this is true showing how differently this couple thinks. If Mildred can turn in her husband for books, she does not get how he thinks at all showing their vast differences.

Harding feels inferior by his wife’s bosoms. In the movie OFOTCN, when Nurse Ratched brought up an issue about his wife during the one of group meetings Dale used very deep words where the Acutes didn’t understand any of it. The Acutes mocked him for saying such big words. The Acutes also teased him about his sexuality. For the inside out project, I decided to divide the page into two pieces.
Her husband was Claudius’ brother, so that act was seemed very weird at that time by the people; they believed that was an act of incest. So it’s understandable why Hamlet was very upset at the first moments, even reading several times the play we don’t know if she knows the plan that killed her husband, but there’s a little information to declare that. Some readers can see Gertrude as a silly women Shakespeare(1514) and citing Hamlet she is a “most pernicious woman’’(p.130) with no loyalty towards his father’s memory and lack of selflessness, which by the way at Shakespeare time were seen as the precise qualities that a perfect wife must possess. But I wonder myself that was attitude was due to the patriarchal
He makes rude comments of the blind man's dead wife, their life, and how pathetic it is to have a partner blind. The narrator continues to ignore what the blind man is saying and refuses to see the man’s position. He states: “ Finally, when I thought he was beginning to run down, I got up and turned on the TV. My wife looked at me with irritation” (Carver 7). The narrator is trying to an effort but he is simply not interested in the blind man and wife wants the narrator to consider for her
