Eddie felt humiliated about where she was raised, she didn't want to be associated with the "scandals" that belonged to the shacks north of the creek. She believed that, since she grew up in the shacks, she was worth less than the next person. Edith was embarrassed by her drunken father, even though none of his actions were ever her fault. Her mother, a "hallelujah-shouting fool" who preached, but never actually went to church, was also a huge contributor to the way Eddie felt. With people tormenting her about her cousins who were teen moms, or her father who made a fool of his drunken self in public, the poor girl felt like nothing more than dirt, and she wanted to be thought of as flawless and beautiful.

It seemed like Archie was never able to make his own decisions, and that she was always the one in control. It is fate that she decided to leave him, because inevitably Archie seems like he has regained his life and is better-off. Ophelia’s whole family is also crazy and very vulgar towards Archie, blaming him for all of Ophelia’s problems. In the novel Ophelia’s grandmother was speaking and said, “…he take-a her mind, he take-a the blender, he take-a the stereo – he take-a everything except the floorboards. It make-a you sick…” (Smith 9).
In the story you almost feel bad for her because her parents really do not take her side, but then find out she is a huge drama queen. She tries to get you to be on her side by making you feel sorry for her when in fact she is a jealous person towards everyone. She is really jealous of her sister and judges her sister for all of her mistakes.” The passage above supports my thesis due to the fact that Laura Lukes believes that due to Sisters selfishness she is unable to connect with you her family. Instead of Sister embracing her sister’s homecoming she tries to cause trouble. “And I said to Stella-Rondo, ‘I think I would do well not to criticize so freely if I were you and came home with a two-year-old child I had never said a word about, and no explanation whatever about my separation.’” The way
So Victor does just that, but after it awakes, he is filled with disgust and hates his creation because in his eyes it is ugly. “But now that I had finished, the beauty of the dream vanished, and breathless horror and disgust filled my heart.” (Page 56) A true mother doesn’t care what their child looks like, they love it anyways. Next, the major theme of this novel is the women’s role in families. During Victor’s dream, he sees Elizabeth turn into the corps of his mother. This reinforces the idea that women are frail and weak.
This racial language is disgusting and should not be said by a young boy, but it goes to show that Ben has inherited some of his mother’s racism. On the other hand Daisy is extremely hurt and distressed by Ben’s language towards her. Her innocent mind cannot comprehend why Ben would say such a thing, even if he was purely influenced by his mother. Mrs Preedy is very involved in her son’s life and prevents him from making his own decisions because of her racial views. She made it impossible for him to become friends with Daisy only because of her coloured skin tone.
Mayella is rarely explained through out the novel so her background is kept short and simple, however you can see the great affect of not having a mother around has on her. Mayella consequence from not being vocal and telling the truth in To Kill a Mockingbird is one of personal growth. She does not learn how to take ownership for her actions neither does she learns how to stand up against her father. Mayella Ewell and her father Bob will always have the blood of Tom Robinson on their hands because of his abusiveness and because Mayella is complacent about her fathers angry
The tone that she uses in her piece seems to be sarcasm and this sarcasm is what leads me to the assumptions I make and the way I read her essay. She obviously wants to go to school and become economically independent and be able to support herself. I think that she is not happy with her current situation of being a mom and a wife and feels unappreciated. She stays home and does all the things she lists for her husband, but she resents this role in society that she is in. I assume that she wants a divorce from her husband but because of the role that society has placed on her, but she is unable to get one because she is very dependent on him.
Before this line, Jordan remarks that she’s “never seen a girl so mad about her husband,” it’s more like Daisy was mad with worry that her husband was off with some other woman. That’s why she would look “uneasy” when he wasn’t around, because she knew of the possibility. Daisy, entirely aware of her husband’s infidelities does nothing to stop them yet she complains that she is unhappy. She has no right to do so seeing as she had the choice of not marring Tom but
Due to Desdemona’s never ending, continuous love for Othello, she ultimately played a role in her own death. The love Desdemona feels for Othello is seen in the fact that she goes against her family and marries the man she loves, not the man that may necessarily be more suited for her. Brabantio, Desdemona’s father, believes that Othello lures Desdemona away with his witchcraft and that her life would be much better if they never married. However, Desdemona ignores her father’s instruction; despite the fact Brabantio believes their relationship is unnatural: “She [Desdemona] is abused, stol’n from me and corrupted by spells and medicines bought of mountebanks; for natures so preposterously to err, being not deficit, blind or lame of sense, sans witchcraft could not” (Othello, 1.3.60-64). At first, Brabantio believes that his daughter was tricked by Othello, that he stole her away with his magic spells and witchcraft.
