She knows that he is going to be flirting with girls all night, so she allows it while she sneaks away to do a little flirting of her own with Mr. Gatsby. Daisy’s worst quality would be her snobby attitude. Daisy thinks she is so much better than anyone else. She focuses on the opinions of others before anything else. d. Daisy is a wife and mother.
“…Janie looked down on him and felt a self-crushing love. So her soul crawled out of her hiding place” (128). Hurston uses this metaphor to emphasize the fact that Janie could never really be herself and that now she finally found someone who would let her be who she wanted to be. As a reader I feel like Janie is finally content with herself and is happy enough to where she can be herself around someone. Teacake made her realize what love was all about and it opened her eyes to what love could have been like in her prior marriages with Logan and Joe.
Infidelity today is the number one killer of marriages and relationships, and can be looked at as a symptom for non-working marriages. In the novel there was a lack of love and respect in the marriages, and there wasn’t anyone trying to fix their marriages either because they were around for their spouse’s money, or cheated because they were rich and felt could get away with it. There was one couple in particular that demonstrated these examples of infidelity in the novel. The couple was Daisy and Tom. Daisy stayed married to Tom because he was buying her happiness and his money, while deep down, she was really hurt and sad about the relationship.
However he is still unhappy, not until Daisy leaves Tom. Gatsby’s striving for the American Dream has left him vulnerable to the corruption of the upper class and has decided upon his death. Daisy is Gatsby’s biggest dream, he believes that if he could win her back he will find his true happiness. However Daisy is not willing to leave her husband because of his status in the upper class society. Daisy as well as Jordan are described as innocent and pure throughout the first couple chapters of the novel – “ They were both in white, and their dresses were rippling and fluttering…”.
Logan is Janie’s first stop to becoming a strong, independent woman. She stands up to him when she leaves with Joe, taking another step to a better life. Joe’s forcing of Janie to be just an object and symbol of his political power causes Janie to rebel and spring up from her lowly position. This prepares Janie for her next husband, Tea Cake, whom she will eventually not be completely dependent on. This, in my opinion, is one of her greatest achievement.
Then she is accepted back into the community by the women, and the shame is completely gone because she earned her integrity back. In the end she kisses Dimmesdale, her true love before he finally dies after Chillingworth, stopped keeping him alive watching him suffer. So we do not learn much about Hester before the scarlet letter but I think that she is a very intelligent and courageous woman to go thru what she went thru and think in both level four and five, while not succumbing to the temptation of having the scarlet letter removed on the spot, and instead earning her integrity
Because it is an accepted practice for an older married woman and a younger man to be friends, Edna’s husband sees nothing strange about this. After a time Edna and Robert grow closer and start to feel for each other in more than just a platonic way. Though she doesn’t act on her growing feeling, this makes Edna reevaluate her life. She realized that she wasn’t happy with the way her life was going. Edna felt as if everyone had control of what she did, except herself.
Most women wouldn’t speak up against their man because then society would see them as rude, unrespectful and uncompassionate women, which then would ruin their reputation. However, Janie did not let her gender interfere with achieving her goal and after taking a prodigious amount of abuse, she finally spoke out against Jody, eventually leaving him. Her third husband, Tea Cake was a caring and loving man, who really admired Janie for who she is. He gave her many privileges that were once forcibly snatched from her. They talked a lot and were very compassionate and romantic with each other, but one day Tea Cake hit Janie to show her and everyone that he is in control and the dominant one.
Joe and Logan had a big influence on how Janie could not trust Tea Cake at first. She showed Tea Cake she had some problems by saying, “It’s all right tuh come teach me, but don’t come tuh cheat me.”(pg.96) She was showing Tea Cake that she wasn’t a rookie in the relationship game. If Tea Cake was going to try and make a fool out of Janie she wasn’t going to let that happen. Tea Cake coming along really didn’t have a effect on her self-identity at first. Tea Cake did everything differently than Joe.
