Also, Grant used to be a very hostile man and he didn't care for anything but from visiting Jefferson he started to care about his life and the things in it, he dedicated his whole self to helping Jefferson become a man and he would get into arguments defending his choices with his aunt even if she was very important to him and they never fought. This is greatly shown when Grant is on a visit with Jefferson along with his aunt, Emma and the reverend Grant talks to Jefferson and tells him how he needs him and how he is someone who can do so much while he cant, then he began to cry. This shows how Grant wants to make a change in his life. Grant is a person who goes from being miserable and only cares for himself into someone who can love other things in life and fights for
A young man entering the trade could expect to work alongside men more skilled in erecting timber than steel, and if he were not permanently disabled, he might live ten years in the trade, possibly longer if he were lucky. Since steel erection attracted only the most daring of independent men, little or no thought was given to the need for formation of an effective Union for their protection. Nevertheless, many of these eligible bachelors, admired from a distance below by the "wholesome young girls" of the Gay Nineties for their feats of courage and strength, later gave thought to such things as provisions for sickness, injury, or death to protect their families. Primarily for these reasons, thirteen delegates form
Yet his shame at having a child with a Hazara woman leads him to hide the fact that Hassan is his son. Because he cannot love Hassan openly, he is somewhat distant toward Amir and is often hard on him, though he undoubtedly loves him. Keith’s father is
Candy did however have compensation for losing his arm, which he had kept saved encase he needed it. He worried about his future on the farm, so he tried to secure a sure future caring for Lenny and George when they bought their house. Steinbeck showed in the novel how the elderly were put on the scrap heap. They were seen as less important, useless and a waste of time. This affected Curley in a negative way, making him always fearful for his future.
Because being a teacher was to be with children and teach them what was right and wrong, just like mothers. In this period, men didn’t think for one second to be a maid, nurse or teacher, because they were meant for women to do and they were too manly for those jobs. Before the war employers didn’t hire women because they believed they were jobs assigned for men (nps.gov). Most women gave up work when they married, though some women kept working after marriage because they couldn't afford to give up their jobs. Working after marriage was generally something done mainly by poor women.
The reason he doesn't go is because that is the day he visits his mother in the home she lives in, and she would never understand if he changed the day and would pick on him more than usual. He would love's the Manager’s job because then his mother would see him as more successful and maybe give him more respect. He has a sort of girlfriend whom he would like to marry but feels that he does not have much to offer her at present and anyway she might say 'No'. He comes across as a gentle man who is very aware of the feelings of others and afraid of what they might think of him. You will have assessed him as visual in modality.
Even though he loves Edna and his sons, I don’t think he is considered as a good husband since he knows very few about Edna’s true feeling. I think this because he spends slight time with them, and leaves the family behind and goes out saying that he is always busy and has to go away for business or spends more time with his friends. As my point of view, I think it is not fair for a guy to treat a wife or his family like this and it seems like he is just a selfish person to me. Since marriage during that time of period was very harsh for women I think she was able to survive by meeting people. The time period where Edna was living was in a very strict condition for the women, especially for house wives.
Walter Younger described how much he longed to be a part of the “American Dream”. His tone throughout the book suggested that he was disgusted with his lifestyle but very passionate about doing whatever it took to be well off and accepted by society so that his family wouldn’t have to struggle and be an example to his son of what a man should do for his family. Money probably meant the most to Walter because that’s all he talked about from the time he woke up at the start of the play until the end after he refuses Mr. Linder’s money. Walter works as a chauffeur for a rich white man making very little money leaving him feeling less
Walter Lee is unhappy with his job, his salary, and feels like there is so much more he could do if only someone would give him a chance. He wants to be successful and live the American dream, but feels as though no one will believe in him. This also makes him feel alienated from his family, because they don’t even believe in him. He just wants to be taken seriously but nobody does. This also undermines his masculinity, because the rest of the adults in his family which are all women don’t take
Lefroy did not want to be at his aunt’s home in the first place and so he was bitter to the residents of that area from the time he arrived. He had an attitude about him that suggested he was better than those who lived there. Austen disfavored him because at their first encounter he belittled her and her work. Throughout their time spent together, Austen and Lefroy find themselves falling in love. They are both passionate, as shown in his choice of novels he suggests Austen to read, and her for utter love of the literature.
