Connie’s Escape Connie is fifteen and is always worried about how her appearance looks. Her mother don't like the fact she spends more time looking her self herself in the mirror then being neat and responsible like June, her older sister. Connie seems to ignores her mother’s criticisms most of the time. In order to escape her reality she opens the screen door to get away for from her family and be in some kind of fantasy. I think there were other reasons also, but the story points to this one in many places.
The book follows the story of a young girl named Tita who longs her entire life to marry her lover, Pedro, but can never have him because of her mother's upholding of the family tradition of the youngest daughter not marrying but taking care of her mother until the day she dies. Tita is only able to express herself when she cooks. I enjoyed this book because it taught me a lot about how one’s traditions can affect your life. This book goes against some beliefs that many people have because “Like Water for Chocolate” is a fiction book, it is believed fiction books cannot teach anything useful. But the lessons I learned are applicable to life and have also provided
Hair spray? (Oates 323) You don’t see your sister using that junk.” Connie hated when her mother would do this. She would say she hated her mother and wish she were dead. But when she has to make a decision on whether to jeopardize her own life or her mother’s, she chooses to put hers in jeopardy. When it came to describing her sister June, Connie thought of her as just a 24 year old secretary who still lives at home with her parents.
In O’Connor’s story the grandmother is trying to make peace with the misfit with the grace of God. “The Misfit has an opportunity to accept grace but recoils in horror at the Grandmother’s gesture” (Piedmont-Marton). In Laurence’s story the mother is constantly trying to get her daughter to be more of a “girl” instead of working with the father on the farm, “For years she has helped out her father, but that winter she realizes that her mother is expecting her to become more of a “girl” — working in the house, for instance, instead of in the fox

Jem says, "Scout, I'm telling' you for the last time, shut your trap or go home--I declare to the Lord you're getting' more like a girl every day!" Since Scout thinks being a girl sucks and always wants to keep up with her older brother. Jem saying this to her was like a slap across the face, she had no choice but to go along. 3. This tells us that Jem really wants his father to not see him as a child anymore but as an adult.
She was also taking several women studies classes and had many of her friends preach to her about their feministic views that altered her perceptions on the gender equality in her culture. One day that her father was visiting he an to speak to her that they need to create a two-year marriage plan. As absurd as it sounded to Sayeed, she could not believe that what once used to be a joke when she was a child was becoming a reality. Her father had already a candidate in mind, and she was distraught that the boy he wanted her to marry was a distant family member. She understood that her father only wanted the best for her, but she was discomforted by the idea that her dad was promoting her around and trying to recruit a husband for her.
Unsatisfied by her surly husband, she constantly sneaks around the barn, trying to make the workers conversate with her. Curley’s wife dream was to be a Hollywood actress but this dream is unreachable due to her ruling husband. She imagines how great it would be to stay in nice hotels, own lots of beautiful clothes, and have people want to take her photograph. Curly is so overprotective and will not let her do anything unless he approves it which really rarely happens. For her to reach this dream she has to have more freedom from Curly or just leave him.
She did not even want to marry Curley, and live on the ranch. "I wasn't gonna stay no place where I couldn't get no where or make something of myself. So I married Curley." Curley's wife needed an escape from her previous life which must have been extremely bad for her to marry a person she did not like. I think Curley's wife's dream is important in "Of Mice and Men," because, it shows how different people suffer.
