His poor treatment there is more shocking because he has been drawn as a character who had, “worked hard” and ”owed nothing to any man.” Mrs Edwards, the daughter, is confused at first by the nun’s reaction to seeing her. When the nun asks, “Is your father lighter or darker than you?” she begins to realize that he will not be admitted there. The nun sends them away and delivers the platitude, “God bless you dear”. Mrs Edwards replies “and God pity you sister”. Her father dies at home, and she has endured the agony of watching him die.
Her mother seems to be constantly taking up for her sister, Stella-Rondo. Stella –Rondo is always antagonizing Sister and lying on her to cause problems within the family. Also, Uncle Rondo seems to be the family drunk. Last but not least, Papa-Daddy seems to be an old and cranky gentleman. Her dealing with these individuals has caused her to become very resentful, bitter and jealous.
The first thing we experience as an audience is the burial controversy. Although the proper burial of her brothers body was forbidden, Antigone’s moral standards would not allow or such a thing. Her sister, Ismene warned her it is not her responsibility as a woman to “aim too high, too far.” Antigone admitted to her guilt with honesty which might just have been her tragic flaw. And she did not allow her sister to take blame neither, sparing one life. Perhaps, because she saved one life, the rest would have to fall.
Mrs. Mallard conflict started with her having health issues and finding out her husband had died. Then she doesn’t know how to feel about her husband’s death. During the story it seems that Mrs. Mallard was only at the will of her husband because her husband (society) expected her to be. When I read “Clever Manka” it left me with a sense of will to fight for what you wish for. I say this because when her husband told her to pick any one thing in the house to take with her.

Our lives aren’t furtive, just our feelings towards people like you” (50). Andre’s mother is repeatedly bashed at by Cal because of her “disapproval” on Andre’s homosexuality.

For example, her parents were racists because they did not allow their daughter to date Indians while he comes from an open-minded family who loved him dearly. For instance, Junior’s parents transferred him to Reardon because they want the best for him, but they also warn him that change will be hard. In conclusion, even though there are extreme differences between Penelope and Junior, both feel lonely
This made everyone in town think that she simply didn’t feel any remorse for her son’s death. When she actually did feel sorrow, loss, and remorse, she just didn’t want to show it. The question here is: Why doesn’t Hagar want anyone to know how she really feels? The answer is that this is her way of protecting herself. She made an emotional wall in fear of getting hurt.
The mother may be the birth mother and be related by blood but she sure doesn’t show any love toward her handicapped daughter that she abandoned. The dull and tasteless tone/style of the story express the love between Linda and her adopted and birth family. The tone never really changes; it always stays in a slightly sad and depressing language. Through out the whole paper there is very little description. When Linda is talking about how clean her mother Betty tried the kids and how dirty the dad always got them, she just says exactly that and nothing more; “Betty was always trying to keep us clean, and Albert was always getting us
He cares about her wife, Eurydice, as well because Creon wanted to suicide when he saw his son and wife died in scene 8. In the play Antigone, Creon is not a loving ruler because he is stubborn and doesn’t listen to advice and Creon doesn’t listen or believe the prophet. He only wants what he thinks is the best. He doesn’t even bother asking the people of Thebes for advice. He is a one man state and will only does what benefits the people of Thebes.
