Bradbury’s awareness of the influence censoring had was apparent; as a result, the well-being of society is dramatically emphasized. Throughout the course of Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury vividly illustrates about the illegitimacy of censorship; this is done by referencing the reason to censor, the history during Fahrenheit 451, and the effect it has on the well being of society. First, the issue of censorship is brought to light by composing a dystopian where books are illegal and deep thoughts are disregarded. At the opening of the novel Montag is a passionate fireman, but his occupation comes with
Lastly, Sarny was unbroken, she learned to tolerate people, and she had the characteristic of understanding. In the novel the author states, “We each live in our own times...best we can”(p.92). Sarny believed that life will not always be fine, but the only we can to is to accept our time and live the best as we could. This shows that Sarny has tolerance to trouble, and the world’s evil. She understands that Miss Laura and herself have different lifestyles, different classes.
Being that each one has their own personality and individuality, means that some are more reliable than others. For example, Adah is a reliable narrator and Rachel would not be considered dependent. Ruth May, brought an innocence to storytelling because of her age and the simplicity of the things she said before she passed away. Leah, is one half of the set of twins and was almost like the perfect golden child, who was also intelligent. Leah was the one who mostly supported and followed her father, she also brings the tomboy side, with hunting aspects and wanting to hangout and do what the males do.
Mother-daughter relationships are complex and diverse. Some mothers and daughters are best friends, for they can talk through everything and share their secrets. Others have to keep a distance to avoid conflict. The relationship between La Inca and Belicia was unalike from the relationship between Belicia and Lola because La Inca was not Belicia’s mother and she raised Belicia with culpability for Belicia abusive childhood. There for, La Inca acted as a permissive parent, La Inca gave Belicia a few rules, but La Inca never unforced them.
Sophocles still included Haiman, making him seem more heroic due to the fact that he defends her and kills himself over her body. People's minds get clouded by Haiman’s “heroic” acts while in fact Antigone was the real hero. How do we start progressing to the next step? Getting rid of sexism is such a huge topic today but obviously, there is still a huge amount of steps we need to accomplish to make our goals reality. The first step to change is realization.
In Where the World Began, Laurence describes the importance of coming to terms with one’s own homeland. The final dissimilarity is how each of the stories end. Winnifred ends a changed person after witnessing the outcome of her brother’s charming, but manipulative attitude. After sternly ordering her daughter to clean up after a tantrum (which Zachary consistently avoided doing), she says to herself quietly, “Thank you, Zachary” (108 Wilson). This affirms that he changed her considerably into adulthood and remains there.
Her sense of superiority, and thereby her hierarchy that supplies her superiority, is captured within her belief that “she [could Manley Pointer’s] remorse in hand and [change] it into a deeper understanding of life” (284). Her predilection to viewing people like Manley Pointer as inferior translates into a self-isolation prior to Manley Pointer’s intrusion into her life. As described by Mrs. Hopewell, her mother, Joy-Hulga rarely tries to connect with others, or rather, to branch out from herself; Joy-Hulga seemed to grow “less like other people and more like herself--bloated, rude, and squint-eyed” (276). Distinctly, Joy-Hulga’s hierarchy is one that has no room for anyone else at the top, and it places herself at the highest tier, making her untouchable and infallible in her mind. Because of her hierarchy that lends to an isolationary sense of superiority, Joy-Hulga is actually rather unfamiliar with social interaction, and because she assumes her superior position, she is further blinded to any guile
Nettie encounters her on a voyage to England and amidst many a dinner, Doris shares her story. “She was born to great wealth… she wanted to write books… her family was against it… [and] hoped she would marry” (pg 235). Doris became a missionary to get away and write under the pen name Jared Hunt, through which she amassed a large fortune and came to own the village of Akwee. Doris’s character represents how misogyny didn’t just exist for colored women, but all women. Writing under a masculine pen name, having to leave her family to enjoy a life of freedom and happiness, Doris Baines found the power to escape what would have been a constructed lifestyle, providing Celie with another role model to inspire her to do the
