In this scene Ofelia is seen to be doing wrong in the eyes of her Mother and the Captain, but in her eyes she feels to be doing no wrong because she refuses to call someone who is not her dad, father. She even portrays this message to the Captain’s maid, Mercedes when she says, “ The Captain-he's not my father. My father was a tailor. He died in the war. The Captain’s not my father.” Ofelia makes it known that the Captain is not her father.
Alice's parents tell her who she is permitted to see. They also instruct her how to dress, and of course how not to. It is through experiences such as Alice's younger sister falling off the bed, under her watch, that Alice's parents have a crucial influence on her self-discovery. Specifically, Alice's relatives influence her self-discovery journey by not being supportive. As Alice had to grow up basically looking after her self and her younger siblings she learned that even if you do not have support you still need to follow your dreams and live you life.
In “A Sorrowful Woman” I found it appealing of the lengths that the husband took to nurture his wife the passage that states “With great care he rearranged his life.” (41) shows his dedication to her and making sure she had what she wanted. While it was appealing to see his love for her, it also did not appeal to me to see that instead of trying to get her help she needed, he just placated to her depression until it overtook her. 3. The two women’s attitudes toward family life differ because while Faye is upset because she does not have a child and desperately want to give one to Kai, Godwin’s unnamed wife is upset and desperately trying to escape from the child and husband and life as a mother she already has. The problem for Faye is being able to realize that she
This makes the reader feel as though Monsieur Azaire does not respect his wife because he does not call her by her name. The first time Stephen and Isabelle communicate with each other is when her step son, Gregoire, asks Stephen the question “How old are you?” to which Isabelle shouts Gregoire’s name. This makes Isabelle seem as though she likes things to be done properly and for each person to know their place in society. Faulks has done this to help the reader but also Stephen so that they can start to see what Isabelle’s character is like. Faulks reveals a significant aspect of the Azaires’ marriage when Stephen hears her being beaten by Azaire.
She does anything in her power such as lying just manipulate to get her way, she purposely says something false to ensure the children will persuade their dad, "’There was a secret panel in this house,’ she said craftily, not telling the truth but wishing that she were, ‘and the story went that all the family silver was hidden in it when Sherman came through but it was never found . . .’" (282). As seen since the beginning of the story, the grandmother tries to use her skill to manipulate The Misfit in sparing her life. "You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?"
As a writer Cisneros had to go through many tough experiences. The character in the story also learns greatly from them as she grows more mature and responsible. One tragic experience she had learned from was the death of her grandfather. In the text she says “And I think if my own papa died what would I do. I hold my papa in my arms.
As a devoted family member, she wasn’t scared to let everyone know about her going to bury her brother, as her sister said: “ That I will not tell a word to anyone, but to keep it quiet.” But her sister simply responded: “Tell everyone you know.” Showing that she cares no less than what people think that her own family values. However, she knew there would be a high risk for it, although Creon was her uncle, from her family and he still had to follow the laws of those who break it. Knowing that she had broken a law, Creon was to put her to death. Sadly, Antigone couldn’t bear of this happening, so she killer herself instead, by hanging. This kind of punishment was necessary; it’s worth dying for; it’s your family, the ones that have always been there for you and made you to what you have become now.
And also by cutting short the time he spends with Hanna to be with Sophie and the rest of his friends. But most importantly he is mostly guilty when he doesn’t save Hanna’s life when he could have reveled about her illiteracy. But he does not, which leads to Hanna’s eventual death. Even in the roles of husband and father Michael is charged with guilt. “(he) could never stop comparing the way it was with Gertrude and the way it had been with Hanna.” (pg.171) but does not tell her what he expects of her.
King Lear says to his daughters ‘if it be you that stirs these daughters’ hearts against their father’ which shows how he feels betrayed: a feeling he may have not felt if he had not been so foolish to dismiss Cordelia for her honesty. Cordelia, however, plays a smaller role in the first few Acts of the play as she is disowned by her father and is not visited. Gonerill and Regan are both cruel father and do not have the same loyalty we get the impression as Cordelia does. Cordelia says at the beginning of the play ‘what shall Cordelia speak, love and be silent’ which shows that she loves her father however doesn’t feel she should lie about how much she loves her father. This truthfulness however lands her in a bad place as she is disowned by her father for not professing her love.
Iago was constantly persuading me to steal it from my Lady and I denied his request every single time but yesterday, opportunity presented itself and I did not think twice about taking it. I had hoped that by presenting the handkerchief, he would be kinder and more loving towards me and that night, I got what I wanted but the affection and love I received was a reward and not a gift. I observed Othello and my Lady together. His touches are sincere and gentle, his voice loving and sweet and they are not a reward, but a gift. My husband is not and will never be like that and because of this, I am regretting my thievery immediately for I fear that he will use the handkerchief to destroy the amorous bond my Lady and Othello has developed.
