As she refuses to talk to anybody, the child created her own imaginary world being unwilling to look at the reality: “Why couldn't he understand that if he kept quiet, if all of them kept quiet, her parents would hear her and come to take her home?” (47).

In this way, Walls goes from a starry-eyed child who blindly worships her father to an adult who sees the true nature of the people surrounding her. An example of this is when she admits to her father that he will never build the glass castle and that even if he did, she would not be around to live in it. In this way, Jeannette learns to take control of life and choose her own path. Walls’s ability to tell her own story is transcendental in the very sense that she breaks free from the preexisting narrative paths that most stories are told from and tells the truth of her life regardless of the criticism it may be met
She is very caring and gentle with her husband. A demonstration of this is that she refuses to abandon him when he goes blind, despite the risk of infection. This not only shows her love for her husband but also demonstrates her lack of fear or her courage at the prospect of turning blind. This is foreshadowing, as later in the novel the inmates discuss what made them go blind. An anonymous voice states “fear struck us blind, fear will keep us blind.” This links back to the fearlessness the wife displayed.

The mother may be the birth mother and be related by blood but she sure doesn’t show any love toward her handicapped daughter that she abandoned. The dull and tasteless tone/style of the story express the love between Linda and her adopted and birth family. The tone never really changes; it always stays in a slightly sad and depressing language. Through out the whole paper there is very little description. When Linda is talking about how clean her mother Betty tried the kids and how dirty the dad always got them, she just says exactly that and nothing more; “Betty was always trying to keep us clean, and Albert was always getting us
When the day finnaly came, no one said goodbye. All that was said was, “do not disgrace us” When Lindo arrived, she wasn’t given a celebration or anything. She went straight to the kithchen and started to work. Even though Lindo really missed her family, she knew that she had to stay and keeo her parent’s honor. This still shows that she was brave, that she is not a selfish girl.
The police reassured her that everything is fine which makes her totally isolated from any kind of help. Krueger gets to his victims through their dream which is the even scarier part for these teens. There are role reversals throughout the movie as well such as Nancy’s relationship with her mother. Her mother is the one who becomes vulnerable while Nancy should be able to feel secure around her but that is not the case. For a lot of teens this instance in these movies resonates with life in
Daisy remarks to Nick when recounting the birth of her girl 'that's the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool'. This is a very important part of the film because it underlines one of the main themes: women's rights. Daisy says this but she doesn't really believe it and although she knows that this is attitude is wrong; she doesn't do anything about it. This shows the weak part of her nature and how she is not willing to stand up against what is not right. Later in the film, Daisy rebels against the lack of women's rights but she does not succeed and then loses all hope and becomes a 'beautiful little fool'.
Nora is the most admirable character in the whole play. Back in the day when it takes place, it was unthinkable that a woman could leave her husband to obtain freedom. However, Nora had the courage to take the step forward and abandon the man she no longer loved. She chose to support herself and educate herself to be a better person. The marriage between her and Torvald was not a true marriage; they never understood each other and never talked about serious matters.
”My sister’s the one who’s always had to imagine life without me”. Kate was selfless to come up with a plan so that her sister could live a normal life. Sara Fitzgerald is also brave because she never gave up with everything going wrong in her life she continued on strong. I agree with her decision throughout the book; I too would have done anything to keep my loved one alive. “My daughter has leukemia and needs a bone marrow transplant; the hospital explained that our insurance company needs to sign off on coverage.” Sara is desperately trying to get her daughter the help she needs but no one is trying to help her.
