With Reference in ways Steinbeck presents the death of Curley’s wife, Show how the characters react in different ways. The first two Characters to find Curley’s wife were Candy and George. Steinbeck uses imagery to portray how Candy reacts when he finds her, “his face was hard and tight as wood, and his eyes were hard” this gives us the idea that he is angry and is trying to bottle up his anger. We realise by the way Candy reacts that he cares about Lennie and George and doesn’t want either of them getting hurt, “sure george, sure, ill do that” he tries to protect George from the rest of the ranch workers. Whenever George leaves Candy, his calm and reassuring ways turn into anger and sorrow, “You god damn trap”.
He is talking about Curley’s wife with the clear intention of discrediting her to George. This displays him to be a heedful rumourmonger amongst the other itinerant workers: “Well, I think Curley’s married a tart.” In addition, another language device that Steinbeck uses in this passage to present Candy is adjectives. There are a wide variety of adjectives used such as, “reassured” and, “safe” which also describe Candy’s inner thoughts and feelings. The fact that Candy feels secure when taking to George implies that he is reluctant to talk to any of the other ranch hands because they usually disrespect him and exclude him for who he is: a disabled individual. However, “reassured” may suggest a sense of caution and perceptiveness about Candy, and suggests that initially he did not trust George and Lenny.
On the contrary, these short stories depict few differences in the event of their unfolding. The settings are of not only different eras, but different locations as well. John Updike’s “A&P” and James Joyce’s “Araby” are stories that contain both many parallels and variances. The ideology of youthful love amongst the protagonists is a main similarity for “A&P” and “Araby”. In these stories, the boys are flummoxed by the beauty of two girls and struggle to find a way to communicate with these striking young ladies.
Tartuffe, on the other hand, takes advantage of Orgon’s naivety and ignorance. Orgon welcomes him with open arms into his house not knowing what this religious hypocrite had planned to do him and his family. The other family members were aware of his hypocrisy and were not happy about this. In fact, Tartuffe was seducing his friend’s second wife without shame. On one occasion, they set him up, but Orgon did not believe anything that was said until he himself saw that Orgon was making passes at his wife.
However, she seems to get intimidated by Chillingworth during their conversation. Her sudden change of personality gives the reader an insight on
When the men in the work place make sexual advances towards Clare or degrade women and each other nothing seems out of the ordinary in fact it seems natural for such masculine based behaviors to be presented. However, when anyone, male or female, shows signs of any female oriented ideal or emotion they are immediately condoned for it and made to feel ashamed. For instance, when Mary begins to cry her boss cracks a joke about women not being able to hold their water. This statement devalues the emotion presented making it appear to be a sign of weakness that only women are capable of and ultimately feeds back into the patriarchy mentality of the dominance of the men over the submissive female. This sense of empowerment given to men in the work force again delivers them the benefit of feeling safe with their ‘authoritative’ actions and behaviors making them feel more at ease within GameaVision.
He enjoyed the change of scenery they had provided with their presence, but from a moral standpoint, he was neither here nor there. Things quickly took a change for the worse when Lengel confronted Queenie, and Sammy noticed the change in Queenie’s disposition from cool to upset. The unjust treatment of Queenie created an environment that was uncomfortable for Sammy and forced him to make a move, even if it was for the wrong and the wrong choice. Sammy quit his job and didn’t get the recognition from the girls he was so desperately
Although Lengel gives him the opportunity to change his mind, Sammy folds his apron and leaves it on the counter with the bow tie on top. Leaving the store, Sammy “look[ed] around for [his] girls” (82), but they were already gone. Without being rewarded for his heroic gesture, Sammy is left to deal with the consequences of his actions. He then begins to grasp harsh reality of being an adult and “how hard the world was going to be” (82). In “A&P” John Updike described how quickly a person can
While he feels that speaking out in defense of the girls with the underlying hope that they will hear him and be waiting outside for him after he quits, it is both immature, naïve, and will have a negative impact on his future. Sammy’s immaturity and desire to gain the attention of the girls clouds his judgment, in a sense blinding him of seeing the blatant trouble that awaits him if he quits his job and confronts his boss. His innocence is another factor that effects his judgment in the store. His growing desire for the girls grows more as he fawns over their every move, This desire, coupled with his lack of experience with women clouds his judgment and makes them into something he really has no proof that they are. A less innocent/ naive individual would have seen the situation in a different light and come to a more intelligent decision rather than making a rash choice that only someone as inexperienced as Sammy would do.
He goes on to talk about how much she hates her for being a faker and plans on saying, “…Marla, you big fake, you get out” (Palahniuk 24). This shows the irony that he wants her to leave for being a faker although he is just as much at fault. This can be related to men being angry that women were coming in and competing for jobs even though it was a completely reasonable thing to
