The Glory Days Two stories can have different meanings, but can show a common central theme. Flannery O’ Connor’s, “A Good Man is Hard to Find” and “Everything that Rises Must Converge”, are two good examples on completely different stories that have a common central themes. Both stories show two female characters glorifying their past. In “A God Man is Hard to find”, the grandmother talks a lot about how in her days everyone was much more respectful. “Everything that Rises Must Converge”, Bailey’s mother tells her son how back then, her life was much better when her family was wealthy.
Playful in the opening, Sheila is suspicious about Gerald who never came near her “last summer,” suggesting that Sheila isn’t as naïve and shallow as she first appeared. Her character begins to change when she hears of her father’s treatment of Eva Smith - the working-class girl who commits suicide with detergent - in “An Inspector Calls.” Like all of the Birlings, Sheila was partly responsible for the death of Eva; Sheila was jealous of this pretty girl who worked innocently in a store and Sheila reported Eva for slight, meaning once again this young Miss Smith was fired, sending her into a spiral of depression. Sheila is a perceptive person. When Inspector Goole mentions the name Daisy Renton and the investigation into the death, Sheila notices Gerald’s reaction and she is the first to realise Eric’s part in the story. She is also the first to wonder whom Goole really is by suggesting he is some sort of impostor.Curiosity killed the cat and Sheila Birling is a curious person who needs to know about the part Gerald plays.
When Shug is introduced in this story, she thinks she is better than everyone else; she treats Celie almost as though she is her servant. She doesn’t even care that she has intercourse with Mr.____ knowing that Celie is his wife. Shug’s personality is like this because of the glamorous lifestyle she leads as a singer. Towards the middle of the story Shug becomes a lot more understanding. She realizes that Mr._____ has been beating Celie.
[Pathos] Deepest part of advertisement is seeing Taylor Swift’s created emotions towards the campaign. I believe the marketers have made a wise choice to use her in their ad. As most people see Taylor, she appears to be wholesome and down to earth. Therefor parents don’t mind for their daughters to claim her as a role model. It’s kind of funny how celebrities effect society and always have because it seems that people cannot think for themselves.
She sees Paul as just someone looking for a place to fit into and becomes intrigue in learning all about him. Paul is very intelligent and knowledgeable about the life style of the wealthy as this is how he has survived in life looking for the next mark. The Kittredge’s did not initially suspect that Paul was cunning them. Paul treats the couple like regular people and they think of him as family.

Julia Prest ELMIRE AND THE EROTICS OE THE MENAGE A TROIS IN MOLIÈRE'S TARTUFFE A t first sight, the character of Elmire in Molière's Tartuffe appears to have much to commend her, and modern critics and theatergoers generally warm to her: she is attractive, stylish, independent, smart, resourceful, in many ways a modern woman.' Even older, more patriarchally inclined critics have generally been slow to condemn her,^ yet I would like to argue that rather than being a female exemplar who helps resolve the Tartuffe situation as is often stated, her function within the play is in many ways a disruptive one; she is a catalyst to the disintegration of the Orgon household and in practice contributes little toward the resolution of a plot that teeters on the brink of a
The generosity of the pioneer generation shows that the rich of the pioneer generation were not greedy; their goal was not just to make a profit but also to do what was fair and honest. His relationship with Mrs. Forrester is very complicated because the captain does know that his wife is cheating on him but he expected this too happen because she is a very beautiful woman with many needs. Niel even thinks that Mr. Forrester knows Mrs. Forrester better than herself. “The longer Niel was with Captain Forrester in those peaceful closing days of his life, the more he felt that the Captain knew his wife better even than she knew herself; and that, knowing her, he, to use one of his own expressions valued her” (72) Mr. Forrester knows what Mrs. Forrester needs and was always able to do it until he had his fall in the mountains. This fall encumbered him only to sit around and do almost nothing so they did not visit Colorado Springs anymore.
He mentions what kind of drinks and orderves his family might serve compared to the girls who walk in. What Updike does stress is how opinionated Sammy is by judging these girls. He is not really less of a hero for wanting the girls to notice. At his age he is very interested in impressing girls, and by taking the position of the hero he thinks that he will have a chance. 3.
Finally, the people who walk away from Omelas are the ones that believe in justice. Omelas is shown as perfect. The author uses a lot of time from the story to try to prove that it is possible to be happy. “They were not simple folk, you see, though they were happy.” Then, she shows “happiness, the beauty of their city, the tenderness of friendships, the health of their children, the wisdom of their scholars, the skill of their makers”. It represents the possibility of a perfect, ordinary place where people can be happy.
She seems like the doting wife, who loves taking care of her children and her husband. We also see she has a childish air about her, that most things do not concern her. The pattern between the three women is they all have been living off someone usually a father figure, and have never been independent for themselves. Every other conversation has her laughing off or shaking her hand like what ever trifle at the time does not mean anything. Because she has a carefree manner, she uses her feminism to attract things that she wants or to get out of trouble.
