Like the Ladies League only socialized with members that were only acceptable to the president Mrs. Hilly. Though when Celia Foote came to Jackson and wanted to join the Ladies League Mrs. Hilly didn’t want her join because past situations and because of her lack of class. Everyone else in the League conformed to everything that Hilly said because they all wanted to stay in the League with out any trouble. Though Celia never really socialized after Minny started working for her because of her pregnancy. This made Minny supicious about her where abouts.
After her father’s death, all Emily had left was her house and no money. For this reason she was in denial of the fact that she owed house tax which she knew she would be unable to pay. If she is unable to pay the tax it could lead her to becoming homeless. It was easier for her to pretend the problem didn’t exist than face it then deal with the consequences. Emily believed her denial so strongly that she outwardly ignored letters as well as turned away the city’s authorities saying “(she) had no taxes in Jefferson” (145).
“For after finding out who Lio was exactly, mama had forbidden Minerva to bring him into the house” (Alvarez 75). She kept Lio away from the house but she did not stop seeing him. Lio had to leave because his name was all over the newspapers and the police were looking for him. When Lio left he said he would write Minerva every day. Lio left, Minerva was not receiving any letters and was kind of curious because he did say he would right her every day.
Ian loved not knowing a single soul when he was there. “What had struck him most forcibly was the fact that when he walked down the street he hadn’t known anyone.” Pg 20. He found it liberating. His mother must have too, because she decided she wanted to leave Struan with Ian’s geography teacher, Robert Patterson. Ian’s mother had never really been there for him.
Carver shows Claire’s isolation from Stuart through their obvious lack of communication, apparent by his failure to inform his wife of the dead body which he had stumbled upon. Newspaper reporters continually call the house seeking details. So many reporters are aware of the incident, yet Claire is ignorant and thus isolated from both her husband and the event itself. Also, by using Claire as the narrator the reader has an insight into her own thoughts and opinions, which she fails to voice aloud to Stuart. Her failure to
In the group is Alison Reynolds the misfit, Andrew Clark the jock, Brian Johnson the geek, Claire Standish the princess and John Bender the rebel. It is apparent that they all have stressed relationships with their parents, are unsure about their future and have immense pressure from their peers (Loukides, 30). Allison Reynolds is a strange, unusually silent character, who is a mystery to most people. She did not do anything to deserve detention, except that she had nothing to do on this day and decided to go into detention in order to find company. Her parents are uninvolved and ignore her.
Silent Judgment In the play “Andre’s Mother,” it is up to the character Cal to develop the character Andre’s mother. She is silent the entire play, which leaves the audience open-minded to make many opinions of her. Cal talks to Andre’s mother, but she never replies, which shows that their relationship was pretty much non-existent. The audience can assume that his mother is going through a grieving process throughout the play and that is why she is silent. Not only did Andre’s mother have communications issues with Cal but also with her own son.
He never met Connie up close and personal until almost the end of the story. He could tell her everything about herself and it scared her. I believe that Connie could have avoided that because she could have just been herself at home and with her friends. Arnold Friend was a man there to teach her a
Some would think that they will miss their families and relationships and most of all, love. But the people in Utopia have never experienced any of these. They were brought up in conditioning centers and feel that parents and family are primitive. The mere sound of the word annoys them. Monogamy is discouraged by the utopian society and considered improper “Four months of Henry Foster, without having another man…why, he’d be furious if he knew…” This restrains people from getting too emotionally involved and putting their loved one’s needs before the society’s needs.
They all knew that it had something to do with the religion that they believed in but none of them decided to explain the reasoning behind it. The only thing they really had to say is that my mom said so or it’s just a normal tradition, but no religious history behind why they acted the way they did. I believe this is a perfect example of pluralism because even though the friends sitting at the lunch table didn’t feel the need to explain or didn’t know how, the other friends didn’t judge them for what their religion’s traditions were. This example by Eboo Patel was very persuasive to me, but not as persuasive as her next
