One day, he told her that he liked her much better then the others because she always played fair. Overall, Adeline didn’t receive the nurture from her family that she needed. Father, Niang and her siblings were cold-hearted people that didn’t know what loving and caring for each other was and only cared for themselves. This made Adeline feel unwanted and left out. Luckily, YeYe and Aunt Baba’s love and hope supported Adeline to look forward to the
Elizabeth is also often upset and embarrassed by the behaviour of her mother and of her younger sisters. Her father is a landowner, but his estate, Longbourn, is entailed away under English law from his children because he does not have a son, and upon his death, Longbourn will be inherited by his cousin, Mr. Collins, a clergyman. Within her neighbourhood, Elizabeth is considered a beauty and a charming young woman, with "fine eyes" to which Mr. Darcy is first drawn. He is later attracted more particularly to her "light and pleasing" figure, the "easy playfulness" of her manners, her mind and personality, and eventually considers her "one of the handsomest women" in his acquaintance. Pride and Prejudice primarily focuses on Elizabeth and her experiences with Mr. Darcy, a wealthy, proud man who, on their first meeting, snubs her at a public dance in her home
She did not find that a marriage service generated love; she did not enable her husband to recapture his youth through hers; nor could she compensate for that by running his home in the manner of an experienced housekeeper.” This quote illustrates that Elias Strorm was very cruel to her that she died after her second child was born. She was a beautiful, young woman who Elias turned into a very dull person. She always wanted him to be happy and be a good person, but that did not happen, he was just unfair and unpleasant to everyone. To conclude Elias Strorm’s wife is a good supporter of her husband as well as Emily Strorm. The role of women does demonstrate bystanders and supporters of their husbands and family member.
There are major and minor characters in literature as in life. Aside from the family members and friends who have been highly influential, the major character in my life is myself. As a seemingly confident individual I often mask my insecurities by not being completely honest with others and myself about how I truly feel. In this respect I can relate to Amanda in For Whom the Southern Belle Tolls who puts on an act in front of the world to make her life seemingly ideal. Extending on that, Maggie in Everyday Use does not voice her opinion due to her insecurities, which I am also guilty of.
Christine was a marter and didn’t mind taking over the project and letting Janet be a loafer. Janet eventually felt like she didn’t play a role and had no contributions to the team. Janet felt no self worth within the group and this carried on to situations at work. Janet needed the support of this group more than ever. Christine thought since the rest of the group was doing well she didn’t need to worry about one member.
What would Alice Paul and Snookie even talk about, would they become enemies or best of friends? Snookie in my opinion is weak minded and I think that Alice Paul who was an intelligent human being would probably convince Snookie to fight for women’s rights. Snookie is perceived as a drunken woman who has no respect for her body in more than one way would really discourage Alice Paul. Alice Paul would see that all of that pain and suffering she went through it all for nothing. Women still do not respect themselves especially since Snookie is so popular among viewers of television and other women want to be like Snookie.
Scarlett O’ Hara is beautiful, but spoiled, high-tempered woman. For instance, Scarlett quotes “I want them to be pea green with envy!” She always wants people to be jealous of her. Sometimes she does not care what other people care of her. In addition, Scarlett always flirts with the guys. Scarlett can be unfaithful, just how she was to her husbands in the story.
Moreover, the girl has criticized Miss Brill´s fashion; she thinks the fur looks like a dead fish. Put aside her race, Miss Brill has been awfully discriminated by the youngsters; they make fun of her age and laugh at her odd fashion style. Not quite like Miss Brill´s discrimination case, Phoenix Jackson is more pity. She is not only being discriminated for being old but is also a victim of racism. On the journey of getting medicine for her grandson, Old Phoenix has encountered numerous
“Every generation laughs at fashions but follows religiously the new.” (Henry David Thoreau) The relationship between mother and daughter is indeed a very complicated one to understand. It is even more difficult to comprehend when both are from completely different worlds; two worlds with contrasting ways of thought and clashing opinions. Amy Tan’s The Joy Luck Club is an excellent example of how mother and daughter can overcome their rough complications by setting aside differences and truly understanding each other. Although cultural differences were one of the major sources for conflicts, other obstacles included generational differences, language barriers, and personal past experiences. Culture was the source of many difficulties between each mother-daughter pair.
