In Goblin Market, the Goblin men tempt both of the sisters, Laura and Lizzie. “ Laura bowed her head to hear/ Lizzie veiled her blushes” (Rossetti 34-35.) It seems that of the two, Laura is more interested in hearing about what the Goblins have to offer. As the narrative progresses, it seems that Laura is more than just interested in the fruit. A tailed Goblin offers her a taste, “The whisk-tailed merchant bade her taste”(107.)
During that scene while Adeline was watching Sesame Street her Uncle Josh undoes his pants and rapes her. The reason I say he raped her was because she stated that, “When it’s all over he’ll have treats for me. Its Like when a dentist gives me extra suckers for not crying, not even when it hurts.” (Robinson 293). The Effects that some of these have on the story is that it shows why the reader does the things she does. It also helps explains all the ‘snapshots’ that she has.

This passage highlights Hurston’s belief in karma and what goes around comes around. I will illustrate how this passage develops __. Though Delia was once in love with Sykes she now feels mostly hatred towards him.

Aunty Jean is significant in communicating to the reader how negative Martyn’s view of authority figures is, because using his interaction with her as source material the reader can see his mistrust and hatred of Aunty Jean, therefore it is clear that Martyn views Aunty Jean in a very negative way: ‘Thought of Aunty Jean made my stomach turn.’ The verb ‘turn’ describes Martyn’s uneasiness and the fact that he feels physically unwell at the thought of having to live with Aunty Jean. We the reader are able to deduce from this, just how much Martyn’s opinion of her has been negatively impacted by his father’s views. Martyn has no reason to suspect that Aunty Jean would be cruel to him or that she would be worse to live with, all of his hatred and wariness about her stems directly from his father’s own opinion and what he has heard his father say about her. Therefore Aunty Jean is central to the reader’s understanding of Martyn’s immature outlook on adult figures, and how much living with an alcoholic father has shaped his view of authority figures. Brooks also presents her through Martyn’s perspective as evil and sub-humanly disgusted, the thought of her makes him feel physically ill, in order to show how much Martyn needs her to prove his assumptions wrong so that he can grow up and mature.
