Mr Birling is a very selfish man who ‘has to make his way’ and doesn’t think of anyone but himself and his family; he thinks the community is stupid. He likes to make predictions on future- the unsinkability of the titanic, the impossibility of the war and the promises of technology. Sheila is presented as a very pretty and a quite honest character. She is engaged to Gerald Croft and they have just had their engagement party. When the inspector tells Sheila about Eva Smith she showed a lot of emotion and felt that she had to tell the inspector everything that happened.
She is now just an object that he owns; which many Victorian women were to their husbands. Porphyria’s Lover starts with Porphyria appearing to have the upper hand over her lover due to the possessive title of the poem and how she takes control as soon as she enters the house “she shut the cold out and the storm” and then when she appears to assert dominance in their relationships “and made her smooth white shoulder bare”. It is clear that her lover feels as if his power is being threatened so he kills her “Three times her little throat around and strangled her”. The man’s power is restored and Porphyria is dead and powerless. Because he strangles her with her own hair the speaker infers that Porphyria brought this on herself by trying to take his power, this was her fault and not his.
The neglect from her husband causes Daisy to wilt, much like the flower if it were treated harshly. By the end of the novel, Tom’s careless behavior drives her to kill Myrtle, Tom’s mistress. Gatsby, who was in the car with her even “tried to make her stop, but she couldn’t” (145). Obviously Daisy, being a competent driver, could have kept herself from swerving into Myrtle and killing her. Fitzgerald is showing his
She is Tom’s victim for pleasure. Myrtle has an affair with Tom because he is masculine and handsome. Tom takes advantage of her and abuses her. For example, Tom and Myrtle are fighting about Daisy and Tom breaks her nose. Myrtle also becomes a victim in her own death.
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
Willy displays another fatal flaw, he is a liar to his family. Willy has an affair with a woman and even gives her the stockings that he bought for his wife Linda. This could be the reason for why Happy believes success is being with as many women as possible, and is also the destruction of any trust Biff had for Willy. Willy Loman displays many
She made an anorexic feel bad for not eating, calling her names like cow or pig. Another example of feeling no remorse was Lisa calling a burn victim in the ward, Torch, a degrading nickname. Lisa had also cut down Daisy for cutting herself and had no remorse. Another characteristic Lisa showed was callousness/lack of empathy. By making Daisy feel horrible and guilty for letting her dad rape her, and exploiting her in front of Suzanne.
Curley’s wife would always try to show more of herself, and of course the reaction of the men was to call her a “tramp” and a “rat trap”. This is also subtly changing the readers view. We can see that all the men on the Ranch feel the same way about her. Steinbeck almost puts you in the position of Lennie and George, so whenever she insults them, so also insults you, further exaggerating what you feel about Curley’s wife. For example, when she says “They left all the weak ones here” all the men ignore her to let her know that she isn’t wanted, and Crooks tells her to get out.
Furthermore, both poems betray women as bad people. For instance in Porphyria’s Lover his lover acts quite slutty around him; “and made her smooth white shoulder bare,” – this shows that she may have only been in the relationship for an arteria motive. In The Laboratory the woman wants to kill for her revenge and also kill innocent people for fun. He may portray women in this way as women were seen as a “lower-class” to men at the time that the poem was written. When writing The Laboratory Browning will have looked at what people wanted to read.
Grant Penrod essay is mainly about stereotypes, he talk about how people hated nerds and geeks. We all hate nerds because they know about everything, for others all we care about is social society and sports but the main reason we hate the smart kids is they scored high in SAT and walk out with a degree and good money. “Robert T. Kyosaki claim in his book “If you want to be Rich and Happy, Don’t Go to School”. In my opinion, celebrities and athletic is not something you can achieve easy, many people achieve things in a different ways. Anyone can hold a doctorate degree, earned more salaries of the nerds.
