We see an example of this arrogance towards Gerald when she says ‘Go on Gerald – just you object!’, and the stage directions that it should be said with mock aggressiveness. This is one example of the many things that she says to Gerald with stage directions of such a manner. She doesn’t seem to say anything normally but has some sort of sarcastic tone to say it in when she is talking to Gerald. When the inspector comes, Sheila is very honest and open about everything that she did wrong and is genuinely apologetic about everything that she has done to contribute to the death of Eva Smith but she doesn’t want to take all the blame so she is very persistent that everyone admits to their involvement to the death of Eva Smith. She doesn’t want all the blame on her so she insists that the rest of the family says what they have done so she doesn’t feel so bad because they also ‘helped to kill this girl’ as Gerald says.
Moreover is she not only unpopular at school, she is also a diabetic child. “And we laughed at her because she was a chubby, diabetic child …” 1.4. Celia is now introduced as the exposed girl, and we are now guessing that the headline is referred to her. Even though she is being laughed at, she wants to be a part of them so desperately, that she follows them every day till and from school, but she is being ignored. We are introduced to just a few people in the text, other than Celia.
For the most part, she has a pessimistic explanatory style. She attributes her situation to an internal cause; she believes that she is not a strong enough person to stand up for what she believes in. She tells V that she thinks she is not as brave as her parents, and therefore cannot fight back against the government as they did. She declares: “I wish I wasn’t afraid all of the time, but I am.” Evey assumes that the conditions she lives under are stable; she doesn’t think that they are going to get any better. Also, she makes global attributions for the decisions that she and others have to make.
I have sympathy for both sisters for very different reasons. Most of this sympathy is towards Dee. My reason is simple; I feel she has a superficial view on heritage. She is arrogant and I find her to be condescending and a little disrespectful. From the beginning when we were first introduced to Dee, we find that she has changed her name to Wangero saying that Dee is “dead” because she didn’t think her name, Dicie, had any cultural significance and so she choice a name she felt suited her more.
They were the stereotypical toys of the girl, and help to create the image of the stereotypical “girlchild” in the mind. This then continued into when it described how the classmate described her “great big nose and fat legs.” This helps to create the picture that she is no longer the little girlchild that was perfect in every way in the view of society. Instead, she has become different, because she has features that go against the stereotypical definition of beauty that is defined by today’s modern culture. The fact
The story gained a lot of information and it wasn’t as scornful as the way Dee is towards Maggie. If Dee was to tell her point of view, it would be full of lies and she would be full of judgmental comments especially towards Maggie. You would notice in the end how scornful and judgmental she was to Maggie by saying that she ought to make something of herself too. The narrator of the story admires her daughter Dee and all her good ways but also points out her selfish and patronizing ways. Dee’s attitude towards her family
Sue clearly didn’t want to take the time to help Betsy learn anything and resented the time it was going to take to do so. I think when someone has a negative attitude it will come through in their speech, actions, behaviorisms and can translate to those around them. Betsy could have been sensitive to these negative feelings coming from sue and in turn set off some negative emotions. 2. Clearly there are abuse issues: 1.
“Four Directions” Essay In “Four Directions,” Waverly is crippled by her mother Lindo’s criticism. Waverly cannot follow her desires because she is under the impression that her mother is trying to cause her harm. However, Waverly soon realizes that it is not because of her mother that she cannot follow her desires, but because of Waverly’s own lack of self-confidence and direction. When one lacks self-confidence, one is vulnerable to criticism and therefore loses one’s direction, becoming unable to follow one’s desires and to control one’s destiny. Without self-confidence, one is defenseless in the face of criticism, causing one to lose one’s direction.
I don't want to sound conceited in any way, but I've experienced this before. It doesn't feel the best either. It seems like we can't do anything in our society anymore, if you don't have the figure of Beyoncé or the face of Megan Fox your not beautiful. Every woman thinks if they don't look ideal they aren't happy with them selves, leading to plastic surgery, or even self
Ibsen, faithfully, wrote the play as a way to criticize Europe society at the times when people were not interested in any technologies and truths. The ignorance people, in truth, would not regard what is right or wrong. They seem to believe what the majority believe without any consideration. Dangerously, people, in the play, seem to not care about having rights and allow their superior (might) to control anything even the truth. In the conversation between Dr. Stockman and his wife, as an example, Dr. Stockman says that ‘Yes, but I have right on mine!’ His Wife, Mrs. Stockman immediately reposes to his saying that ‘Right!
