However, he also admits that his wife gave him more information than necessary. He confessed to it when his wife gave him details of how the Robert’s hand felt when it touched her face, details that he feels were not necessary (Carver 2368) . All the while, he narrates purely by using her wife’s words. Furthermore, he explains how his wife used to write poems to him, but he silently reacts by saying that poetry is not something that he turns to when reading a newspaper (2368). In this part of the story, he does not sympathize with the wife.
And how Nea deals with this events. This story is written with the immature and unreliable 12-year old perspective. These two sisters have grown together all through their life’s, creating a strong bound, and the fact that her family and a “old guy” is taking away her sister is something she can’t stand. In the end Nea believes that she is saving Sourdi from Mr.Chhay and her mother. However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.
In “Bedecked”, Redel raises attention about the different approaches to parenting in a situation when a parent’s son is more flamboyant than society would deem acceptable. Redel can handle the criticism and “other mothers looking”, but wanted none of it to change the purity of how her son “loves a beautiful thing not for what it means- / this way or that”(16-17). She ends her poem by asking readers if their “heart was ever once that brave”, for going against social norms and not confining to them (21-20). In addition to the older woman and younger man double standard, Calbert's “In Praise of My Young Husband” lists examples of the world’s different romances to note that there is not just one single type: “young lovers like to drink too much / and make a drunken, careless love, / why couples always cook so much” (19-22). Romance comes in all different forms and sizes, and Calbert understands that along with these she apprends why people fall in and out of love.
The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald and “The Glass Menagerie” by Tennessee Williams both feature a character who is unwilling to let go of the past. In The Great Gatsby, we see that Gatsby, the main character’s neighbor, longs for the love that he used to have with a girl he met before going off to war, Daisy. In “The Glass Menagerie” Amanda Wingfield, the mother of the Tom Wingfield the main character, is always rambling on about the past relationships she had. She only knew how to talk about that, and so it was the focus of each conversation she had. We see both, Gatsby and Amanda, not being able to move on from something that they cherished so much but that is long gone now.
She also let herself open up to the idea of having a new perspective of him. She learns to love and respect Darcy out of her own free will, despite what her family thinks.

Elizabeth wanted to marry someone that she loved. Darcy is looked down upon for admiring Elizabeth but is so strong in his opinion that he does not let others influence him.
She had no intention of reading the book, since she saw it as a symbol. It represented the last time she saw her mother (because she was sent away to a foster family) and her brother. When her foster father, Hans Huberman, discovered the book she had brought with her, he decided to help her become literate. Together they spent hours learning the how to read as a way to comfort her when she had one of her frequent nightmares. That helped Liesel forget her fears when she had a nightmare, formed a lasting bond between the new family, and also helped her realize her thirst for words.
For example, when Miranda herself says, “Sir, are not you my father?” (1.2.69), she comes to the realization that she may have been lied to on many occasions for quite some time. This realization provided me with was the inspiration to subtweet Prospero. Although Miranda would never speak to her father in this manner, the pain she immediately felt would lead her to distance herself from him and say something like this. Due to the fact Miranda never imagined herself in this situation, she addresses it by speaking about Prospero in a way she never imagined she would. As Miranda debuts from this situation, she feels neglected so in effort to lighten the mood, the hashtags are used to bring a smile
That is proven through a quote from the book, “Write about what disturbs you, particularly if it bothers no one else” (Stockett 83). This quote wasn’t said by Skeeter herself, but it was advice from Mrs. Stein to write about what bothers her. This quote proves that she cares about the maids, because she is bothered by how they are treated. It is through her compassion for the colored maids and her father’s colored field hands that she feels the need to sit down and write the book. Not only, does the book display Skeeter’s love and compassion, but it brings out Aibileen’s and Minny’s.
Her husband, Henry, has the ranch to give him a sense of accomplishment; however, Elisa only has her chrysanthemums. This is why towards the end of the story the author states, “She tried not to look as they passed it, but her eyes would not obey. She whispered to herself sadly, He might have thrown them off the road. That wouldn’t have been much trouble, not very much. But he kept the pot, she explained.
I expected Calixta to be guilty after her affair, or to act uneasy around her husband, but instead she seems jubilant, giving her husband a, “...smacking kiss on the cheek that resounded” (547). She seems as though she is rejuvenated, ready to fulfill the task of being a mother and a wife. It is as though through fulfilling a need of hers, she can fulfill the needs of her family. Even Alcee takes time to write to his wife, Clarisse. The author even describes that he misses his wife and children.
