He ain’t a nice fella” (89). Previously, we learned that she impulsively marries Curley - after knowing him for just one night- to spite her mother. In other words, Curley’s wife is responsible for her own isolation because she chose to marry a man she didn’t even like. Additionally while talking to Lennie she exclaims: “Aw, nuts! What kind of harm am I doin’ to you?
Edna has found her new found freedom by moving out of her big house she shared with her husband into a smaller house for herself. She is still trapped by her feeling s for Robert. He comes to visit her for the last time; Edna leaves Robert at her house and told him to wait for her. When she got back, Robert wasn’t there and left her a note, “I love you. Good-by –because I love you.” (Chopin, p148) which caused Edna to commit suicide because she realized she was not happy without her kids and society wouldn’t accept her because she left her husband.
Curley’s wife begins to regret living on the ranch with Curley. She starts to regret living there because of the way they treat her. And also because she could be doing better in her life instead of sitting around being bored and only being able to associate with Curley. Curley’s wife states “ I tell you I aint used to livin’ like this, I coulda made somethin’ of myself.” (Steinbeck 88). They treat her wrong because in this novella they only calls her Curley’s wife they never called her by her name so no one will ever know what it was.
Curley’s wife knew at time she was powerless. “They left all the weak ones here.”(Steinbeck 77). Curley’s wife is calling Crooks, Lennie, and Candy weak because they didn’t go off to the whorehouse with the other guys, but here she is. She is weak by default and all her pretty dresses does not make her powerful. Steinbeck created a certain image of women by portraying Curley’s wife as she is.
Offered by a human” (195). In Their Eyes Were Watching God, Janie’s grandmother Nanny makes Janie marry someone she does not love. Janie does not want to marry Logan, but she concedes to her grandmother’s demands. The grandmother merely wants Janie’s life to be secure and safe; the grandma did not want Janie to turn out like Janie’s mother. Janie holds anger for her grandma because of the grandmother’s decision, but eventually, after she matures, Janie realizes that Nanny was merely doing it
One comment that stood out to me was “women are used to worrying over trifles.” The words trifles means something of little value or importance, by Mr Hale stating women are used to worrying over unimportant items, it shows he doesn’t truly care about women’s thoughts. Sheriff Peters isn’t considered oppressive, but he is extremely dismissive of his wife’s thoughts and concerns. He is also quite prejudiced towards Minnie in the fact that she killed her husband. The final Man in this story is Mr Wright. Although he is dead and he never speaks, we do
I don’ like Curley”’. (89) She simply marries Curley in a way to get back at her mother. Another reason Curley’s wife marries Curley, is she believes that her mother ruined her dreams. Curley’s wife could have been a movie star. She has one opportunity but she did not receive a letter.
She is greatly mistreated by her family. Connie’s mother wants her to be more like her sister. Connie by not feeling wanted in her family search for love somewhere else. Connie’s mother and busy father is wrong for not loving their daughter how they should because if they did she wouldn’t/t be looking for love somewhere else. I think she wishes her mother was death because her mother doesn’t stop comparing her to her sister.
This states another good example of cruelty to women because back then women were not allowed to work they were expected to stay home and clean all day and raise there kids. Lastly, In the story her husband never lets her talk about house she feels, so she keeps it all bottled up in her head which eventually drives her crazy. As “The Yellow Wallpaper” States “It 's hard to talk to john about my case, because he loves me so. But I tried to last night” (777 Gilman). This show another great example of women cruelty because back then women were not allowed to state there own opinion and also
“After her father 's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all.” (Faulkner 517) Miss Emily was from a time where there was an expectation of what women were supposed to do and what they were expected to do. “In this case there was a young girl [Miss Emily] with a young girl’s normal aspirations to find love and then a husband, who was brow-beaten and kept down by her father, a selfish man who didn’t want her to leave home because he wanted a housekeeper” (Faulkner 523) And this expectation that Miss Emily had for herself to find a find a husband to kill Homer Barron because she did not want him to leave, her guilt for her crime is what causes her to stay mind to stay cemented in a time before Homer Barren died because excepting the passage of time would cause her to accept what she has done. “When she lost him [Homer Barren] she could see that for her this was the end of life, there was nothing except left, except to grow older, alone, solitary; she had something and she wanted to keep it” (Faulkner 523) She imprisoned not only herself to the confines of her own home but also Homer Barron, and the house became her prison and her sanctuary. She chose her home to be her prison because in her home she was free to become oblivious to the outside world, so that she may allow herself to believe that time has stood still in her home and that the passage of time has ceased to
