It’s not easy for Connie to live with her mother, who constantly harps on the way Connie looks and how she doesn’t live up to her sister reputation. “If Connie’s name was mentioned it was in a disapproving tone.”. Every time Connie’s mother comments anything about June’s profile, it pushed Connie unconsciously to be nothing like her sister. Mother usually complained about her about habit of looking into a mirror. The narrator states the mother’s resentment of Connie’s beauty because “her looks were gone and that was why she was always after Connie.”.
And then she was still, for Lennie had broken her neck”(100). And so, she was dead. Well, this quote “I don't like curley.

How does Martin portray the character of Manon and her attitudes up until the time of her Mother’s death? In the opening pages, Manon repeatedly refers to her husband as “him”, which is shown in the 3rd person pronoun which gives the impression that he has no respect and she has no respect for him, therefore he has not been given a name. This shows that Manon has a negative attitude towards her husband as she believes he does not deserve a name as he is unworthy due to the treatment he has given Manon. As a result, this leads people to believe that there is no love between Manon and her husband because if he was given a name it would show a loving connection. Therefore, I believe Manon hates her husband.
Most orphanages do not have a lot of meal choices so I would be eating this meal a lot and you might think that this would get tiresome, but for me it never did. I don’t really know why but I guess it is the ingredients. Plus it was better than eating just soup, which was our normal meal. When I got adopted, I thought I would never have this great meal again.

She would say something like this “"I feel like painting," answered Edna. "Perhaps I shan't always feel like it (Chopin, 2005, chap.19 para.3) Then Mr. Pontellier would act out of his normal character and get very submissive and bold with his wife with a comment such as, “Then in God's name paint! but don't let the family go to the devil.
7. In the beginning of the story, I notice a contrast between the two children, Bailey is attractive and small meanwhile Maya is fat (big), unattractive.

Mrs. Davis, Jared Davis’s wife submitted to her husband’s cruelty, drunkenness, lies, scandalous behavior and indolence. She went on about how she was not treated right by Mr. Davis. He had no compassion and no humanity towards her. He also degraded her because, he did something that all puritans thought was something dangerous, something you just don’t do, he tried and “insisted” that they have sex during her pregnancy. Mr. Davis to me had no heart and wanted his wife whenever he felt like it, to make her go through so much.
