“Why don’t you keep your room cleaned like your sister? How’ve you got your hair fixed – what the hell stinks? Hair spray? You don’t see your sister using that junk (Oats 899).” Connie and her father did not have the best relationship either because her father “didn’t bother talking much to them (899).” Even to an extent Connie “wished her mother was dead and she herself was dead and it was all over (899).” So it is easy to think that her personal feeling to her family and her suicidal thoughts could influence her dream in which Arnold Friend threatens to kill her family and ultimately to kill Connie. Arnold Friend was mentioned early in the book when Connie was hanging out with a boy she had just met and hooked up with for the night.
Excerpt Analysis "You're afraid that I might find the happiness that you never had" (27) This is a quote from the beginning part of the novel. Mariam says this to Nana, her mom, when she is leaving to the city to see her father Jalil. This is an important quote because Mariam was leaving and her mother told her she would die if Mariam left her. Mariam took it to be an empty threat, and ranted about how her mother never tried to be happy, and didn't want her to be happy either. It's a turning point for Mariam because she finally decides to leave, and go more than 100 yards away.
Both Dora and Jane are quiet young when they first encounter some kind of hysteria, or symptoms of hysteria. In Jane’s case her first encounter would we the incident at the Red Room (Bronte 12). The Red Room incident is perhaps most important in establishing the rigid structure of patriarchy because we see that the image that appears before her in the ghostly pale moonlight as she imagines is that of her dead uncle, Mr. Reed (Bronte 12). We see earlier in the story that Jane is being punished by Aunt, for “misbehaving” with her cousin John (Bronte 10). The idea that her aunt would lock her away in the Red Room, the place where her husband had lain before his death, shows us what kind of fear her aunt wants to invoke in the child.
Though Charlotte Bronte’s novel Jane Eyre is meant to be a feminist novel which challenges the status of women during the Victorian Age, Bronte puts women in a degraded position, through the portrayal of Jane and her relationships with John Reed, Mr. Brocklehurst, Mr. Rochester and St. John Rivers. At a young age, Jane’s parents died and left her in the care of her Uncle Reed, the brother of Jane’s mother. Jane’s mother was hated by almost everyone of her family, other than her dear brother, because of her marriage to a poor man by the name of Eyre. As the only one who cared for her mother, Uncle Reed adopted Jane Eyre and gave her the best care possible until he died. Afterwards, Jane received only the worst, most pernicious treatment possible from Mrs. Reed, her daughters Georgiana and Eliza, and her son, John.
Blanche blames her sister for leaving her alone to take care of things herself in Belle Reeve which is emphasized by the short sentences used when she says ‘I let the place go! Where were you! In bed with your –Polack!’.
