It is accepted that King Ahasuerus is the Persian king Xerxes I, who ruled from 486-465 BCE (Littman 145). However, this poses problems as it is known who Xerxes was, what he did, and who he married. Records say that Xerxes was married to a woman named Amestris, and there are no records of a Vashti or an Esther (Littman 146). The story portrayed in Esther explains the origin for the holiday Purim. However, it is likely that the story is metaphorical, and the holiday was adopted from the Babylonian New Year, which celebrates the gods Marduk and Ishtar’s victory against neighboring gods (Littman 147).
Sammy empathizes with the girls by putting their lives in consideration. "I slid right down her voice into her living room. Her father and the other men were standing around in ice-cream coats and bow ties and the women were in sandals picking up herring snacks on toothpicks off a big plate and they were all holding drinks the color of water with olives and sprigs of mint in them" (Updike 19). The manager's opinion conflicts with the girls' lifestyle and he says, "Girls, this isn't the beach...That's all right...But this isn't the beach...Girls, I don't want to argue with you. After this come in here with your shoulders covered.

“The green and open spaces of his days on a golf course in Minnesota are gone, replaced by the constricting, cold, gray cement and steel skyscraper” (Flibbert). Dexter used to work as a caddy and would always be in the warm sun on the green grass where he was happiest at. But, since he moved to New York, there isn’t any bright colors or many green golf courses. Green represents hope and the color gray represents dull and emotionless. “The gates were closed, the sun was gone down, and there was no beauty, but the grey beauty of steel that withstands all time” (Fitzgerald).

There are a number of nursing homes in Europe one which I looked at was as follows; Dutch students can live in nursing homes rent-free (as long as they keep the residents company. Ninety two year old Johanna beams at the twenty year-old stepping into her room. Not a visiting grandson, but rather a housemate at her retirement home.
The role and especially age do not matter when a female should be submissive. Snow White started at the very young age of seven years old. When the dwarfs notice Snow White in their home and she told the story of why she was there, the dwarfs said, “If you will take care of our house, cook, make the beds, wash, sew, and knit, and if you will keep everything neat and clean, you can stay with us and you shall want for nothing” (252). Once again, the statement insinuates a female should have the ability to do housework and mainly focus home as the main part of their responsibility. It also shows the expectation of being told what to do, to be rewarded at the end.
Mama’s honesty about herself gains the reader’s trust. For example, she has no illusions about being pretty or feminine: “In real life I am a large, big-boned woman with rough, man-working hands. In the winter I wear flannel nightgowns to bed and overalls during the hot day” (494). Later she references her second-grade education and mentions that she “never could carry a tune” (495). Mama speaks openly about her own faults and limitations, and because of this
In Roald Dahl’s chilling tale, “The Landlady,” he uses the landlady’s character to teach the reader that when something seems too good to be true, it probably is. Roald Dahl uses the landlady to show the moral of the story where Billy is asking about the price per night to stay in her bed and breakfast, ““Five and sixpence is fine,” he answered. “I should like very much to stay here.” “I knew you would. Do come in.””. This illustrates how Billy is enthusiastic about getting to stay in a seemingly lovely bed and breakfast at a very inexpensive price; Billy doesn’t stop to think about why the price is so low for a night’s stay at the bed and breakfast.
At 44AD when I was one year old, my family moved into one of the top floor in the insulae at Rome. We only had one room and there was no sunlight and no running water, which means no bathroom (Ancient History Encyclopedia: Roman Daily Life 4). My family dreamed to live in a tabernae at Palatine Hill, and with a small pool, many bedroom, libraries, offices, kitchen, and most importantly bathroom, but only wish I had was not to be kicked out of the house we lived in and no disaster will happen (Ancient History Encyclopedia: Roman Daily Life 5). My parents always talk about their life when they lived down town, where the clean water flows and no pressure of rent, that they met each other and got married, and to earn more money our family moved in to this apartment that we had to live in fear and depress. I had beg them everyday to move back to the town and I will work for them in the field, but they always said that I have six siblings that they need to feed and told me not to be selfish.
Many of the Disney princesses often represent ideal female qualities and characteristic behaviors. In Towbins article she also states, “Men are depicted as physically aggressive, non-expressive, and as heroic saviors, particularly of women. Women are portrayed as beautiful, dependent on men, and engaged in domestic responsibilities” (Towbin). For example, in Disney’s Snow White, Snow White tidies the cottage she lives in, she cooks for the seven dwarfs, and makes sure they wash up for dinner. In Cinderella, Cinderella is responsible for cleaning, cooking, and doing the laundry for her step mother and step sisters.
