The restaurant is usually open until 10 p.m. during the week and 11 p.m. on the weekend, so 8:15 p.m. was a fairly decent time to arrive at the restaurant for supper. No one greeted them at the door and after 10 minutes, they walked to the bar to attract the attention of the bartender to ask for a hostess to seat them. The hostess arrived and was clearly unpleasant and un- thoughtful as she tried to seat the family in an upper seating area. The family had a discussion with the hostess because the father is an amputee on crutches and cannot sit in an upper seating area, due to his disability. She then brought the family to another area, sat them with the lunch menus and no children’s menus.
Her father doesn’t help the situation because he shields her from the outside world and “chases away potential suitors because none of them are good enough for his daughter” (p.6”A Rose for Emily”). Her father is very controlling of her and this contributes to her being a little off down the road. When she does find a man that she does like in Homer Barron she goes crazy over him despite him being gay. This causes him to kill him when is he is to say that he is not a marrying man. Sarty is
Candy explains this by saying that Curly is “like a lot of little guys. He hates big guys…he’s mad at ‘em because he ain’t a big guy,” (Steinbeck, Page 26). He is unable to seek reassurance from the other men on the ranch because they are, in a way, afraid of him because of the power he holds over them by being the boss’s son. Curly is lonely as he cannot socialize with the men in a carefree way, nor can he be entirely comfortable with his wife, who was never truly in love with him. However, the reader is never asked to sympathize with Curly, nor does the author ever portray his disappointment in a straightforward way, opting instead to make him angry and confrontational to show that
He eventually pities her featherless body rather than finding a pure beauty within it; wishing he could give her some of his feathers instead. The husband never comes to terms with his jealousy, and rather distances himself from it, therefore making him a static character. There is both internal and external conflict in this short story. As the husband refuses to tell his wife how he felt before he died and lets his pride become the best of him, he struggles with
Janie didn’t like that and refused to work and “worship” him for the sixty acres that he had. She threatened to leave him because of his lack of compassion for her and because she wanted better for herself. “You don’t need mah help out dere, Logan. Youse in yo’ place and Ah’m in mine” (31). This shows Janie standing up for herself against Logan because she feels that she doesn’t have to work if she doesn’t want to.
Baba never discusses her with Amir, and he doesn’t appreciate the qualities she passed down to her son “That was how I escaped my father's aloofness, in my dead mother's books” this being a disgrace to baba as he wished for a masculine son "Real men didn't read poetry-and God forbid they should ever write it!” this effectively showing baba’s disinterest in Amir as Baba believes a real man is interested in sports. One interpretation to explain his lack of conformity to the ideal model of manhood could be due to his mother as she feminizes him even though she's almost
When Holden was about thirteen, Allie passed away; causing him to become incredibly distant and angry (39). Holden pushes people away, and never allows them to get close to him because he's afraid to loose them like he lost Allie. This phobia of relationships is also partially the reason he is consistently getting kicked out of schools. He doesn't want to become to familiar with the places or the people; thus, protecting himself from another painful loss. Similarly, in-order to protect himself, Will doesn't allow people to get too close to him.
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.
He did not even think of his wife when his monster declare, “I shall be with you on your wedding night “ He actually ignores her while busy while busy with his monster or anything else and gives little or no attention to her all through the novel. The women of Frankenstein are portrayed as powerless. Victor does not trust Elizabeth with the secret of his creation. He thinks that she will not believe it is possible for him to have done such a thing. Women are also being presented as passive and then dies.
