Through this metaphor Harwood insinuates that all of the woman’s passion has been lost through her obligation to household chores such as scouring out crusted milk. Another notable inclusion in the poem is two children that the woman has no control over as she is too busy chasing lost dreams. Her performances are not even worth listening to according to Rubinstein, presumably one of the children. In fact her performances are so mundane that they would rather “caper round a sprung mousetrap” than listen to her perform. As she wraps the dead mouse in a paper we are notified of the words “Tasty dishes from stale bread”, symbolic of her vain attempts to resurrect something that is already lost.
Even with complete strangers Miss Schwartz is being taken advantage of. When she goes to buy her wedding dress the story says the salesgirl speaks “sarcastically.” Lena did not stand up for herself, instead she h kept her mouth shut. Besides the salesgirl speaking rudely she also is not helpful when Miss Schwartz needs help finding he perfect dress. This girl is being paid to offer suggestions and give advice to Miss Schwartz, so the employee needs to give Lena the respect she deserves. Miss Schwartz is a people pleaser, and she must learn to treat herself with dignity.
This is used in the last line of the poem ‘Bide you with death and sin’; this symbolised her outrage at her sister and her hope that she will pay by going to hell after death. The word ‘Bide’ implies that she will have to live with what she has done, even after death. In contrast, Farmers Bride uses sibilance to emphasise that there are few good point about their relationship; ‘sweet as the wild violets, she, /To her wild self’ this symbolises his love and admiration for her, which is short lived as je cannot get near her. The word ‘wild’ has connotations of unspoilt freedom and rejection of people suggesting that she would rather be with nature than with another person, particularly a male. In sister Maude juxtaposition is used to show the emotion change from one stanza to the next.
Kattrin is portrayed as a character that is different from the others, as she is the only character of pure intentions, but all the more, she is disadvantaged and still suffers a similar fate as her siblings, as revealed in proceeding scenes. The “Song of the Great Solus of this Earth” also reveals Brecht’s mockery of the practice of virtues during war, revealing virtues’ fatality to their possessors. In scene 9, the Cook tells Mother Courage that he has a small inn back in Utrecht, where she can join him. However, he also states “if [mother courage] is bringing [Kattrin], it’s all off”, because the “customers don’t like having something like that always before their eyes” (97). Unfortunately, Kattrin hears them, as “[she] has her head out of the back of the wagon” (97), and decides to save her mother the trouble of deciding, and “clambers out of the wagon with a bundle.
“To comb your noodle with a three-legged stool, and paint your face, and use it like a fool.” (1.1.64) Katherina says this to Gremio and Hortensio after they insulted her; this is not acceptable for a young woman to say to a man. However and the end of the play, after Pertruchio has spend time with her, her behavior is completely different. Katherina never portrays any shrewish characteristics ever again but when Pertruchio calls for her at the end of the play, Katherina comes and asks politely why she was called, “What is your will, sir, that you send me for?” (5. 2. 101) This is an example that Pertruchio has been able to change Katherina’s attitude and that he has tamed her.
At 00.08.23 minutes she still remains hesitant (fig.7 image 3). Chihiro is therefore far more wary, trusting intuition over the security of her parents, thus avoiding Yubaba’s consequence for greed, which was to turn the parents into the universally symbolic, greedy animal of a pig. Chihiro proves contrary to Yubaba’s initial assumption that she was a “lazy, spoiled, crybaby,” (00.37.47) by repeatedly bowing to others, a common Japanese
She thinks that she is far better off marrying him and she is very jealous. Mrs Sparsit wants to be part of the family, like a wife to Mr Bounderby, so she can still boss him around. But the awkward thing is, is that Mr Bounderby only thinks of Mrs Sparsit as a maid, and a useful lady around the house, and nothing more! Mrs Sparsit calls Louisa ‘Mrs Gradgrind.’ This is after her fathers name, because she doesn’t think that Louisa is worthy of Bounderby’s name. One point of imagery that Dickens uses is Mrs Sparsit’s staircase, where she imagines that Louisa is at the top of a staircase, and each time she takes a step down, it is one step closer to having an affair with Hearthouse, and cheating on Mr Bounderby.
Because Mrs. Jones is compassionate her motherly instinct arises and treats Roger like he is her own son, even after he makes an effort to rob her. Langston Hughes exercises three different points in Thank You Ma’am to show this; Mrs. Jones makes Roger wash his face, she feeds Roger dinner, and trusts Roger enough to be left unattended, recognizing that he could steal money and run away. A way she shows mother-like acts towards Roger is she takes him back to her house after he attempts to robber her. The first thing she does is scold him to wash his face. That sounds like something a mother would say.
After she denied Tita and her love, Pedro’s marriage she gave the chance pour man to marry Rosaura, thus breaking Tita’s heart. However, her cruelty is reinforced by forcing Tita to cook the food for this sudden wedding. "I won't have disobedience," she tells her daughter "not am I going to let you ruin your sister's wedding, with you acting like a victim. You're in charge of all the preparations starting now, and don't ever let me catch you with a single tear on your long face, do you hear?" Tita suffered as a victim under her mother’s hand which looks kind of male brutality.
They simply would not want the same to happen on themselves. This will give them an idea and teach them on the morality of child abandon as it is a common and serious social problem nowadays. The second important didactic value appears in when they found a house made of sweets and started eating it without questioning and got caught by an old woman which “although her behavior was so kind, was a wicked witch” (cite) whom planned to eat them when they grew fatter. This part showed that children should learn that there is never free lunch existing in the real world, everything has to pay off in order to archive what is wanted. The last important didactic value is that through out the whole story, Hansel and Gretel showed caring of each other.
