Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband. This gives the impression to the reader that Manon is always negative and is harsh towards her husband, making people believe she is not loving towards him. However, the narrator’s restricted viewpoint could lead us to believe that she is biased and unreliable because she is narrating only from her point of view. Also, at the beginning of the games, Manon has a sympathetic tone towards the slaves and feels sorry for them because she says, “I couldn’t watch anymore.” This suggests that Manon feels ashamed of what she is letting her husband do to the slaves and that she feels sadness building up inside of her towards the slaves being treated horrifically. The dynamic verb of “watch” shows to the reader that Manon feels a little bit of pain towards the slaves and that she feels that they are only being used for torture.
She is classified as an outsider, portraying that she is inadequate in having the ability to interact with others. Also, she blocks the ‘’rectangle of sunshine’’ - Steinbeck does this intentionally in order to allow the reader to pursue a sense of social misfit; as the men think she causes trouble and other than Curley, she has no other engaging connection with any of the other men. This produces the fact that Curley’s wife is marginalized and disempowered from society overall and has no relationship with others as she is seen as an ownership of Curley. Paragraph 2 Paragraph 3 Paragraph 4 Paragraph 5 Paragraph 6 The importance of Curley’s wife in the novel is how she is revolves around the novels main themes such as dreams. Curley’s wife is excluded from female roles as she is seen as a possession of Curley and is often found in search for companionship, as her newly found husband doesn’t provide her with the affection she desires.
This is also the main part of the novella as it leads to Lennies death which was previously foreshadowed by the death of Candy’s dog. Curley's wife does not have a name because she does not have her own identity. She is just Curley's wife. She does not fit in with the men on the ranch as she isn’t allowed to speak to anyone but her husband. She has no friends therefore has a lonely existence.
Racism is constantly flowing throughout the texts during many scenes in which Jim, an African American, is constantly degraded. Twain is also criticized for his depiction of the character’s morals in the novel. Huck’s caretakers, Miss Watson and Widow Douglass are portrayed as benevolent women, but they are really hypocrites whose actions do not align with their articulated beliefs. The women claim to be actively religious, while practicing slavery at the same time. Twain’s representation of certain characters and the dialect of the time has angered many readers.
A lack of this fundamental building block in a relationship can cause many disagreements and arguments. In “Say Yes”, by Tobias Wolff, the relationship between the two people has gone astray partly due to their ineffective communication: “Sometimes his wife got this look where she pinched her brows together and bit her lower lip and started down at something. When he saw her like this he knew he should keep his mouth shut, but he never did. Actually it made him talk more” (74). From here, the couple proceeded to get into quite the argument, showing that their communication habits are, indeed, unhealthy because the husband continued to talk, even though he knew it would lead to a disagreement.
Curley’s Wife Curley's wife is the most pathetic of the outsiders: unlike the others, even Lennie, she seems not to understand her limitations - or she refuses to admit them. She still dreams of what might have been, seeing herself as a potential film-star .Desperate for companionship which she doesn’t get from Curley, she flirts with the ranch-hands. They are uneasy about this, as they think her to be seriously promiscuous, and are fearful of Curley's reaction. She is misunderstood and the way she is introduced by Steinbeck is from the point of view of the workers so her image is marred and the audience have a slight dislike for her already. She is constantly objectified by the ranch workers who see her as nothing but a sexual object which we see as she is the target of name-calling from the ranch workers, being referred to as a “tart”, “loulou” and “tramp”.
She has to go everywhere we go.” When John Wesley was asked by the grandmother what he would do if confronted by the Misfit his reply was, “I’d smack his face.” But in the end we find this to be very untrue. The Misfit’s character is again the result of the breakdown in humanity, family values and all of the values that have been lost in today’s culture. The Misfit may have some social graces because he responds respectfully and apologizes to the grandmother for Bailey’s harsh comment, but there is some uneasiness about the morals his own father had as a role model. There is a hint that the Misfit’s father had a darker side and had some run-ins with the authorities. The Misfit explained to the grandmother, “Daddy was a card himself.
Lefroy did not want to be at his aunt’s home in the first place and so he was bitter to the residents of that area from the time he arrived. He had an attitude about him that suggested he was better than those who lived there. Austen disfavored him because at their first encounter he belittled her and her work. Throughout their time spent together, Austen and Lefroy find themselves falling in love. They are both passionate, as shown in his choice of novels he suggests Austen to read, and her for utter love of the literature.
Brady uses irony in her essay by saying she wants a wife when she already has a husband. This is ironic because women usually want a husband and men are the one’s asking for a wife. She was also being ironic by saying she wanted a wife when she could have just asked for a maid. Of course if she used maid instead of wife it would have defeated the purpose of the essay, but it is still ironic. Brady’s tone seems to be sarcastic.
In fact he becomes so angry that he tells Ophelia that he never loved her and that instead of marrying she should go to a nunnery rather then pass on her genes to children. At this point in the story, Hamlet makes it seem as if he is not interested in women anymore. For the readers perspective at this point in the story they are clue less as to the true feelings of Hamlet. Hamlet also does not have very much respect for his mother anymore. This may be why he has such a difficult time getting along with women.
