Coffee grounds serve no purpose after making coffee. Dead flowers were beautiful, but are now wilted and don’t do anything. The dust in the can is showing the death of Catherine’s baby in the scenes following that. The can was a symbol for Catherine’s womb, and the objects
However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her. Instead, she “went out very little” (Faulkner 53). Because Emily made the choice to stay hidden from the townspeople even though her father’s presence was long gone, she was creating an antagonist upon herself. According to Ray B. West, Jr., “when as in A Rose For Emily, the world depicted is a confusion between the past and the present, the atmosphere is one of distortion-of unreality” (par.3).
She does not care about the consequences her choices have on other people. In the beginning she endangers the other girls who were in the woods by turning the dancing into witchcraft when she drinks chicken’s blood and does not warn them of what she was going to do. Even so, compared to her following actions, that one would seem almost innocent. She has a complete disregard of the sanctity of life or any Christian values that she had been taught. She accuses or witnesses how innocent after innocent is sentenced to death or to a long time in prison.
Courage is not strength or skill, it’s simply standing up for what you believe in and what is right. This is the theme that was enrolled after Jem destroys Mrs.Dubose’s camellias and after she died in chapter 11. This passage also reveals Jem’s coming of age moment. After using conflict, symbolism, and point of view, Harper Lee was able to connect the theme with Jems coming of age moment. The external and internal conflict in this passage is put in picture by Scout and Jem.
She takes no part in, and mostly ignores the movement for an independent and just Congo, despite living there. Rachel’s adult life consists of benefiting from other people’s pain and hard work. She says so herself, at the novel’s conclusion: “That’s my advice; Let others do the pushing and shoving, and you just ride along. In the end, the neck you save will be your own.” (516.) While some readers consider Rachel Price’s static character nothing more than a pointless trope, it is clear that Kingsolver has carefully crafted Rachel’s accounts of her experiences in the village of Kilanga to subtly illuminate the deeply engrained racism present in the minds of the white missionaries living in Congo at the time, a result of hundreds of years of European colonization and degradation of Sub-Saharan
'In light of present circumstances, in any occasion now you know how terrible it feels and you will abstain from drinking, ' she said" (Moore 62). As opposed to giving some sort of teach, or despite sitting Wes down and bantering with him about his substance use, Mary gets over the condition. Mary neglected Wes ' substance misuse because she didn

But looking at it she saw that it never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams. Just something she had grabbed up to drape her dreams over” (Hurston 72). Janie figures out that Joe is not the man she had married when the “image of Jody tumbled down” she begins to understand that Joe was not at all significant to her because he never cared for her and instead he was a bad influence. Janie figures out that he “never was the flesh and blood figure of her dreams” the life she desires of with Joe Starks, is an allusion and Janie’s dreams are once again crushed. Janie is deceived by Joe because he represents empty dreams for Janie, he was a “drape [for] her dreams” Joe took advantage of Janie and manipulates her to do excessive labour for him in the store and constantly silences her.
Gorrow is faced with a dilemma -- does he abandon his village to the raids of evil minions, or does he attempt to defend it? Or could he disappear completely? *** I took a day’s break from Camelot after the fall of the city and all the intensity afterwards, but all the time I was away, I kept thinking of my village -- Silver Drift. So as soon as I got time, here I am again. I stand by my limestone tower on the moorland and look west to the lowlands where the city that was Camelot now glows black and evil.
Woodson said, “we’d be warned to stay away from the small patch of poison ivy that grew around the base of the one tree in my grandparents’ backyard” pg 2. What Woodson is essentially trying to convey in this quote is how her grandparents tried to protect her from poison ivy, as well as racism and racist people. This supports my argument because it shows how eventually, as one grows older, they can no longer be protected from certain people or in this case, poisonous
