This passage shows Irene explaining to Clare why she does not want her coming to the dance. On the surface, it seems that Irene does not like Clare and that she does not want her to come to social events of the black society. However, in reality, Irene feels an attraction to Clare, and to Clare’s freedom. She cannot live without her which is why she can never refuse Clare’s demands. This is how Lasen shows the reader the difference between the surface and reality of the
Miss Lacy, Clayton Forrest’s secretary was appalled at the thought of a white girl staying with black women, referring to August as her. “‘I’m just saying it’s not natural, that you shouldn’t be ...well, lowering yourself’” (p. 198). Lily’s encounters with racism towards herself from black people and from white people as well, complicate Lily’s life. However, because of these experiences or external factors, Lily is forced to analyze her feelings towards them. By doing this, she is able to recognize her hatred and disgust for racism.
Evelina does not know the rules and is dumbfounded when she is confronted by Clement as she is dancing with Orville. …“May I know to what accident I mush attribute not having the honour of your hand?” “Accident, Sir!” repeated I, much astonished. “Yes, accident, Madam – for surely…it ought to be no common one – that should tempt a lady – so young a one too, - to be guilty of ill-manners” (27). A reader of our time would agree with Evelina and argue that, while it might be polite of the girl to dance with the gentleman who seeks her, it is not required that she do so. If the girl does dance with the man, however, it might be seen as leading him on and giving him false hope of a relationship, or whatever he intended to achieve with the dance, which is more disrespectful and embarrassing than declining the invitation in the first place.

But Jody was set on it. Her hair was NOT going to show in the store. It didn’t seem sensible at all. That was because Joe never told Janie how jealous he was...She was there in the store for him to look at, not those others” (Hurston 55). Here, Joe’s jealousy forces Janie to bind up one of her greatest displays of womanhood.
They figure out that just because you are from a different clique does not mean that you cannot get along with them. They both then figure out that they should not judge others by their social groups at school and by how they dress and act because they realize that they can be completely wrong about them. Jazz and Antonia go through some pretty bad times; when Antonia’s mom goes into the asylum to get help for depression, when Jazz quits playing piano and Mrs. Luther goes hay-wire about it. Antonia and Jazz are different, yet alike in many ways. They soon believe there is no such thing as normal because of what they have been through and what they have learned about one another.
She did this because she thought that Romeo was dead, and there was not a point in supporting that anymore. Juliet, following her heart, began to despise the nurse. The audience, who is aimed to be on Juliet's side, also does not like the Nurse. (7 points) Score 3. As Act III ends, Juliet heads off to
You don't have to think exactly like the author in terms of what exactly the theme is, everyone could have a different take. Like dance, an audience would watch something that the choreographer put together based on her life experiences but as they watch it they relate to it differently than she would, characters represent different people in their lives than the choreographers would. In A Long Way Gone, one of the main themes is; war is hell. For me, not being able to relate to being in a war or even being remotely close to one, the first thing that comes to mind is divorce. Being in the middle of a marital war between parents.
Even though she's not showing loyalty to her friends or her rules, she's showing it to herself. When she was talking to Pony, Johnny, and Two-Bit at the movies, she told them that she hated fighting, so she was trying to find a way to make sure that her friends and the greasers wouldn't fight in an unfair way or anything so bad that more people that were close to each of the groups would get
