Because I don’t care about me.” To which the American man responds by saying “I don’t want you to do it if you feel that way.” Jig uses this statement to manipulate the American man who clearly cares about whether she would actually like to have the abortion. She clearly cares about herself, her happiness, and desires and uses them as major deciding factors. However this manipulation is unintentional as she doesn’t say that she will not go through with the surgery which is what the man has given her the opportunity to say. As the story continues, Jig realizes that the American man is set on her having the abortion; and therefore gives up on the idea of starting a family. The man says “We can go everywhere.” To which Jig replies “No, we can’t.
Throughout their conversation, you can decipher a tone where the conversation sheds light on his feelings towards the procedure and her feelings. He says “It’s really an awfully simple operation, Jig. It’s not really an operation at all” (Hemingway 124), in an effort to persuade her to in fact have the abortion. She, on the other hand, seems silent at first, but then questions how their life will be better after this procedure. Her uncertainty shows in her responses, and in other findings “… the sensuous beauty of a love relation that is quickly deteriorating, now that she has become conscious of her lover’s selfishness” (Maynard 273).
The American’s immediate fear is him having to marry Jig to “make an honest woman of her”, if she has the baby (Hannum). So the American starts talking about his love for Jig and claiming that the abortion is “perfectly simple,” just “to let the air in.” But Jig
The narrator goes on to say “ I wish john would take me away from here… it is so hard talking with john about my case, because he is so wise, and because he loves me so.” Women were not known to have have a voice in the 1800’s they had to do what the men said most of the time. She really has been trying to get away for her mental health, but John never lets her leave in fear that she was not well yet. John pitied his wife and whenever she told him something he would try to convince her that his way was right cause he is the doctor. John says “ why darling… our lease is up in three weeks, and I can’t see how to leave before.” When she tells John how she feels, he basically goes around the question since “ John knows best.” John has most definitely depressed her even more then she was at the
He states “I hope you will believe that my delay in answering your letter could proceed only from my unwillingness to destroy any hope….”. Johnsons begins this letter using emotion tactics because he knows that it will be hard for the mother to accept the fact that he is refusing her request. By beginning the letter in such a manner he is not pampering her for the rest of the letter but also letting her down softly as possible. Oppose to accusing her of being wrong for having this feeling and attempting to change her son’s fate, Johnson defines hope as being “a pleasure immoderately enjoyed” and as an “expectations improperly
Boys only want one thing from girls and it’s not to be respectful and charming. Some guys don’t care what ends up happening after they hook up. All they care about is that they hooked up. This leaves the girl disconsolate and heartbroken because she thought he was the one. Young wanted to stay with Ronna but he thought that he owed Rob a favor back.
An abortion seems to be a difficult experience to go through and a women will need the support of her partner in crime for making her pregnant. It is clear that the American wants the abortion so that he and Jig can continue their lives as before. Their travels would now be altered because of the possibility of a child now being a part of their lives. This would hinder their adventures of aims self-gratification, “That’s all we do, isn’t it - look at things together and try new drinks.” In any type of relationship, communication is the key factor. If you have no communication then you have no relationship, just say what you feel and mean what you say.
While shes being controlled around, Jig is showing traits of feminine style communication. She is here to please the man. After listening to him basically beg for her to have the operation, she gives in softly and refuses to hear more from the man. She agrees to have the operation just for the sole purpose of his happiness, while she knows it wont fix
Easily to win over for anything yet you love him, then you need to support him stop obeying orders. In addition, Polonius tells her to stop talking and hanging out with Hamlet and instead of standing up for what you want you decide to listen. Which shows that Ophelia would rather listen to her father then protect the person she say she loves Hamlet explains your love for hamlet didn't exist only when you wanted it to. Anybody that loves there mate would go through a great deal of trouble just to see them, she just obeyed and didn't bother to make a connect with Hamlet. Meanwhile, when Polonius and the king think Hamlet does not know he is being spied on but he do that's why Hamlet acts out the way he did to Ophelia.
Macwurter, I would be in full support of her decision to go ahead with Clare’s abortion. Again, given all that have stated throughout the paper as far as the inconvenience to the family as well as the detriments to Clare herself. Clare Macwurter having the baby jus is not the best decision for the family. I would also encourage Mrs. Macwurter to push for John Macwurter to pay for the abortion, even if it is against his moral beliefs. I see it as since he is the father and it is not clear as to if he himself is going to help in the future care of the child, his main responsibility is to follow the wishes of Clare’s parents.
