He does this because he feels threatened by the fat man and feels insecurity. He feels his girlfriend has interest in another man. The fact he is being threatened by a fat man shows the weakness of their relation because any man, even with health problems, can break their relationship. The fat man interferes in the story by making the young waitress rethink her love to Rudy. She starts by describing the man’s fingers “long, thick, creamy fingers” but without showing any disgust; in the contrary she somehow adds a sexual aspect.
Farrell mentions that men are called jerks almost one-hundred percent of the time, while the term is never used for women. This is not necessarily because only men are jerks, that is just how the term has been labeled. Farrell concludes that women are so angry with men because they do not get a “prince charming” that they have dreamed about most of the time when they enter a relationship. He says that women should lower their expectations of men in order to soften their anger against them. Personal Response Overall, I found this excerpt very informative and insightful.
No matter how great he seems as a boy, you know there has to be something terribly wrong with him to make your mother like him so much. While Buddy looks great on paper, Buddy's interactions with Esther reveal him to be at times dumb, oblivious, and just plain pathetic. Buddy is constantly making Esther feel irrational and ignorant in contrast to his conceited sense of superiority and falsely confidence. When Buddy undresses in front of Esther, and Esther compares him to a "turkey gizzard", it's hard not to feel that Buddy sort of deserves to be ridiculed. The way Buddy talks about Esther I think affects her.
Edna’s husband, Leonce, often noted “…her habitual neglect of the children” (Chopin 7). Chopin uses the words “habitual neglect” to intensify how Leonce felt toward Edna’s attitudes for their children. Leonce was not pleased with Edna’s lack of care and motherly abilities. Through his diction, it is evident that he senses a change in Edna. Furthermore, Leonce “thought it very discouraging that his wife, who was the sole object of his existence, evinced so little interest in things which concerned him, and valued so little his conversation” (Chopin 6).
Tod came to Hollywood to work as a costume designer. His looks do not reveal how great talent he has. His slow and “doltish” look on his face, his large body made him look very unattractive, unprofessional, and “completely without talent”(2). His large body, and unattractive features made him look very off-putting to Faye. Once she even “…refused his friendship, or, rather, insisted on keeping it impersonal.
Holden is always searching for a new friend but he always turns away at the last moment. When Holden interacts with women in the novel, he is very different when he interacts with men. The female characters all are very important because they present and symbolize many different things. In addition, Holden is very nice to younger females but to older females he gets sexually attracted. When this happens he will do anything to get women`s attention, which leads to him being an extremely disrespectful and impolite teenager who is also very immature.
Then in addition she says “He’s tired that’s all,” showing that Tess is in denial about her father’s position. This is a common excuse to make for someone, normally for a child, and in these circumstances it makes Tess appear even more idiotic as she is trying to cover up her own beliefs which are as see through as a pane of glass. Hardy describes Tess to be a pretty girl. He makes many references to this throughout chapter two. For example the first piece of information that we learn about Tess is that “She was a fine handsome girl” The word handsome suggests that she isn’t the finest of all the ladies but that she is still very pretty.
I think this is because his family, especially his siblings Dewey Dell and Jewel, truly do not understand Darl’s positive intentions. Instead, they are just weirded out by his actions because they are too simple-minded and self centered to understand someone else’s motives who do not match their own, making him that much more subjective to be labeled as crazy. Not only do his intellectually inferior siblings misunderstand Darl, but also his own mother never liked
Two conclusions can be immediately drawn; either Arnold is a harmless jester attempting to hit on an attractive girl, or he is a menacing man with much darker motives. He has never met Connie before in his life, yet by calling her ‘baby’, he addresses her as if they are in a close and personal relationship. More disturbing than calling a complete stranger an affectionate name, is the threat that Arnold insinuates. He doesn't elaborate much on this, only saying he is going to “get” Connie. Without further explanation, this lets the reader interpret if his meaning is physical or emotional.
