Austen reveals Elizabeth’s character as an example about how she wanted to have her own self independence during that time period. Elizabeth is very out spoken for a young lady as herself, most of the ladies during that time period wasn’t fond of Elizabeth and her wild manner, as she wasn’t fond of people in the upper class behavior towards those in a different class. Mr. Darcy in the beginning of the novel was referred as a “bitterness of spirit...and shockingly [rude]”pg. 15 chapter 3. Mrs. Bennet thinks “[Elizabeth] does not lose much suiting his fancy; for he is a most disagreeable, horrid man, not at all worth pleasing” pg.
Miss Bingley is jealous of Elizabeth, she feels threatened by her and fears that she will loose Darcy and his affections will focus more onto Elizabeth. "When dinner was over, she (Elizabeth) returned directly to Jane, and Miss Bingley began abusing her as soon as she was out of the room. Her manners were pronounced to be very bad indeed, a mixture of pride and impertinence; she had no conversation, no stile, no taste, no beauty." Again in this sentence Miss Bingley uses short pauses in what she is saying, she pauses
The sooner people accept that we are all human, the better. Moving on, the author’s style was unusual, criticizing, and degrading, and the tone was less than likeable. However, it was a direct approach to displaying human faults and how people turn the other way rather than acknowledge them. Lady Montagu, clearly took offense to Swift’s poem and so, wrote her own riposte to put him down for writing such an unflattering poem. She certainly did not “pass in silence without matching wits”(292) with Swift.
Also, Blanche is always rudely telling Stella how she lives is wrong and constantly criticizing her relationship with Stanley. Blanche does not understand why Stella would lower herself for someone like him, and when Blanche asks why she is with him and loves him, Stella
Her unsupportive argument is not to prove the misconceptions of what makes a woman a woman, really her arguments about her own anger and aggression towards her past. She can’t get over it and carries those feelings and judges everyone, like they are all out to hurt
The ideal of beauty has become a form of oppression by men and also self-oppression. This makes women feel inferior because they can never achieve the perfect image. Women are always disapproving every part of their bodies, scrutinizing every imperfection. Women are looked at by the different parts of their bodies while men are looked at as a whole. For example, the word “butterface”, which means overall the woman is attractive “but her face”.
Flaws and Fallacies In Mark Twain’s essay, “The Damned Human Race,” many flaws appear within his abundant use of analogies. One flaw stems from his use of Hasty Generalization. Twain supports this by writing that “the earl wantonly destroys what he has no use for…” which, according to Twain suggests “..that the earl was descended from the anaconda.” (Twain 28). This is a Hasty Generalization, for Twain is basing his conclusion on one result that does not represent the whole population. Since his argument is based on a common fallacy, his essay appears unreasonable and flawed.
As if you were able to stop them! I like this quotes in particular as I feel it sums up blanches haunted and complex feelings in this scene, as it appears as something she is. Infect just saying to herself, it's quite a way through the monolouge when, she's "really got into it" (her spiralling pity, a little exaggerated and theatrical) this quotes also seems particularly haunting as if she's re, in acting/remembering her exact thoughts at the time, that someone said this too her and shows us Her confusion/vulnerability/ helplessness her feelings of uselessness and incompetence in that situation and her lack of control which contrasts with her manner of manipulation and managing everyone around
