McMurphy had free will and ask why instead of just going with her orders. This caused the other patients to follow McMurphy and begin to stand out and question Ms Ratched Theory. Nurse Ratched Totalitarian System was then in danger. Anyone who apposed her was deemed disobedient and was sent to the disturbed section of the ward. The Nurse then reacted to the actions with multiple treatments of shock therapy.
Upon the introduction of the main character Jane in “Jane Eyre” we can automatically comprehend that she is an intelligent and mature young girl. Jane is depicted as a child way beyond her years through the way that she expresses herself and behaves. For example in the first chapter Jane narrates: “I never liked long walks, especially on chilly afternoons: dreadful to me was the coming home in the raw twilight, with nipped fingers and toes, and a heart saddened by the chidings of Bessie, the nurse, and humbled by the consciousness of my physical inferiority to Eliza, John, and Georgiana Reed” (Bronte, 11). The same can be said for Briony Tallis in “Atonement”, who finds enjoyment in reading and creating stories as opposed to most girls her age. The novel begins with her creating an in-depth tale of fiction titled The Trials of Arabella, which she takes very seriously.
Due to the nonexistence of a higher authority or family member at Bly, the governess in the Turn of the Screw by virtue of Victorian society was the primary caretaker of the children and the household. The information the prologue provides about the governess depicts the predisposition that she could be vulnerable as she is a “flattered anxious girl … With no previous experience”. However, she may be in awe of Harley Street and the grand estate of Bly, overwhelmed by her surroundings, she may not necessarily be too frightened to tell her story reliably. James’s style of writing in the novella creates room for the readers to view the governess as frightened and vulnerable whilst on the other hand certain and confident. The governess’s adoration of the uncle after visiting him at Harley Street and her belief that he needed her reflects the governess’s naivety.
This, in my opinion, is one of her greatest achievement. All her life she was dependent on someone, and her success in being independent has been her lifelong struggle. Although Janie has already begun to find her voice, Tea Cake encourages her to continue to grow by treating her as an individual. Although Phoebe does not play a key part in the growth of Janie, it is because of her Janie is telling her story. The characters are what keep
The lack of paragraphing and indentation gives the work a sense of being rushed to finish before this day becomes tomorrow. This lack of format contributes to the reader understanding how overwhelmed the daughter in the story must be. It also invokes a sense of the speaker’s life, experiences and daily responsibilities. It also allows the reader to be able to empathize with both mother and daughter through the reader’s personal experience with societal judgment and demands for conformation. By contrast, ee Cummings shows a larger picture of societal conformation.
His sisters, First Corinthians and Lena, whom author Toni Morrison keeps in the background of the novel’s main events, are suddenly transformed into deep, complex characters. The two sisters, who have spent their lives in Dr. Foster’s parlor making fake roses, refuse to be aristocratic sweatshop workers any longer. The fact Corinthians works as a maid even though she has acquired a college degree does not make her feel inferior but rather it liberates her socially. Furthermore, the fact that she finds true love outside of her upper class social status shows that Morrison is making an attack on class consciousness. Lena’s revolt comes out during her confrontation with Milkman.
In the novel, In the Time of the Butterflies, Maria Teresa Mirabal, the youngest of the four sisters, matures from a little, naïve girl into a young woman, who takes part in a revolutionary movement. By the end of the passage, Patria stands in awe, wondering when her little sister had grown up so quickly. While everyone believes in her growth – and indeed she has grown as she is working – the reality remains that Maria Teresa’s work restrains her from fully becoming independent as she is literally in the home, doing traditional women’s work. At first, Maria Teresa does not understand why her sister, Minerva, would ever want to force anyone out of power, even if he is a dictator. The way she speaks displays her childishness.
Her ability to stand up to her father and forgive him the way she forgave her mother unquestionably shows her growth and development as a young woman. The Secret Life of Bees is a perfect illustration of coming- of- age and Sue Monk Kidd ends the novel with Lily Owens well on her way to becoming a woman and taking control of her life. She realizes that she had a mother in August and her community all
There were three types of characters in this story; Dee was the static character who remained unchanged throughout the story, Mama was the dynamic character who caused a change in others, while Maggie was the dynamic character who changed during the story. The fact that Mama knows the inner thoughts of her daughters makes her a limited omniscient narrator. She begins telling the readers that she and Maggie will wait in their comfortable clean yard for “Her” to come. By using the word her to describe the character before stating her name, Mama makes her larger than life; someone other worldly of a higher status. Mama then goes on to describe how nervous Maggie will be until her sister leaves, “standing hopelessly in corners”, “eyeing her sister with a mixture of envy and awe.” She then goes onto reminisce about a dream she had in which she and her daughter Dee, were reunited on a talk show.
Imagery in Fiction Writing Authors often use imagery as a powerful tool for describing and delivering their main point in fiction writing. Imagery can hint at an underlying meaning, let the reader know character traits, describe the setting, and has a host of other uses. As such it is one of the most important literary devices. Two excellent examples of how to use imagery properly are Kate Chopin’s “Desiree’s Baby” and Raymond Carver’s “Cathedral”. In both of these stories the authors use imagery to help drive home their main points, although in a somewhat different manner.
