Consequently, he refers to her as “frail” (Act 1, Scene 2, line 146). It is apparent that Hamlet would have preferred to make decisions for his mother just because she is a woman. He does not trust her mother to make wise decisions even though she has been queen for quite some time. Ophelia, on the other hand, bears the brunt of male chauvinism as she is not allowed to choose for herself who she should love. Her father prohibits her from having a love relationship with Hamlet.
This cant be answered unless you know the events Janie had to overcome during her childhood. The movie does a great job of showing Janie's disgust for Logan Killicks. Although Janie has absolutely no interest in Logan, she ends up marrying him. There was no love in their relationship, the only reason Janie's nanny made her marry was because she was scared, scared that she would die and Janie would be left alone with nothing. Nanny wanted to feel like Janie was stable, so she could rest in peace.
When the townspeople discover the remains of Homer Barron locked away in Miss Emily’s bedroom after her death, we see that Miss Emily ultimately rejected the values of her culture. This is true not only in rejecting its values on dating or marriage but also those disdaining murder. In this way Miss Emily rejects the rigid values that have ruled most of her life. As Dilworth (1999) maintains, “By entering a love affair with Homer Barron, Emily briefly rebelled against southern values and then, by ending her affair with him, at least as far as the townspeople were concerned, she conformed again to those values” (p. 251). In contrast, the narrator does not want to shoot the elephant but ultimately does.
After her awakening after the swim, Edna began to neglect her motherly and wifely duties more so than before. Before the awakening, Edna did not attend to her children the way a nurturing mother would. Her husband noticed that she was not as tentative to the children as she should have been, “he reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children”, (p. 7 paragraph 4). After her husband left for his trip, Edna allowed the children’s grandmother to take them in. She became rebellious towards her husband and she no longer submitted to his commands.
She does not care how others view her; she just wants a better view of herself. Addie’s point of view on life is “the reason for living was to get ready to stay dead a long time” (169). Throughout the novel, she despises Anse so much that she has an affair with a preacher named Whitfield to prove a point to Anse. Addie once says, "He did not know that he was dead” (173). She means that he is dead to her.
Emily’s Denial People develop a defense mechanism known as denial when “a fact conflicts with our wishes, or a feeling conflicts with our values and so we deny it.” (After Psychotherapy by Joseph Burgo, PhD. ).Through this defense mechanism, we refuse to recognize what we actually know to be true. In William Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily”, we meet our main character Emily Grierson who exhibits such defense mechanism as a way of coping with her fear of loneliness and homeless. Due to her fear of being alone and without a roof over her head, Emily developed a denial mechanism as a means to avoid dealing with the fact that owed much tax on her house, she was now alone after her father’s death, and would be alone again if Homer walked away from her or died.
So the true causes of evil are her father trapping her and keeping her away from people and men so long that she literally ends up crazy. Her father was apparently a cruel old man who never wanted his daughter to find true love and move away from him. “None of the young men were quite good enough for Miss Emily and such.” (48) “So when she got to be thirty and was still single, we were not pleased exactly, but vindicated; even with insanity in the family she wouldn't have turned down all of her chances if they had really materialized.” (49, 50) These two quotes show that her father was a real evil man who never saw any man well enough for his daughter and by the time she was thirty she was still single and really did not have a clue what she had been through and that she
Joseph Strorm is one of these hippocrates who does not believe in the rights of the deviations, who had forced his sister, Harriet, to basically never to come in contact with him because she had a deviation of her own. "Send her away. Tell her to leave the house - and take that with her." (p.71) - No one had wanted to be apart of someone who had been a mutant; they had been completely excluded from family and friends. Some positivity in this book includes strong characters who are very accepting, and who are religious, like Aunt Harriet.
He is completely matter-of-fact about the situation surrounding his mother’s death, and he gives her an excuse. Instead of explaining that she was depressed about her life and her son’s estrangement, he states: “Apparently, my mother had always refused to eat fugu, but on this particular occasion she had made an exception, having been invited by an old schoolfriend whom she was anxious not to offend.” He gives his mother a reason for death, as opposed to the real reason. The young girl in “The Moths” refuses to accept the death of her grandmother as well, but for different reasons. Her family is cruel to her, and she is an outcast. She fights with her sisters who call her “bull hands” and are very mean.
The id being, “the dark, inaccessible part of our personality” ("New Introductory Lectures"), clearly proves how someone in Sarah’s life would be unable to completely understand her due to the fact that she hid her sorrowful past. Sarah was alone in the world even though she had both a loving husband and son because she would not share her feelings with
