All of this gives me the idea that she is hiding something because the passage from page three shows how she saw Nancy bleeding out with Grace Kerchiet than she doesn’t tell Dr. Jordan this; she tells him something completely different. I would thing if you’re innocent you would just tell Dr. Jordan everything and not try to twist everything alike Grace does the whole story. On page 398 and those few pages when she is under hypnosis; I also holds strong to prove that she is guilty. I think on this passage when she tells Dr. Jordan that she was taken over by Mary Whitney, her friend’s spirit. I think this is just something she is trying to do to make them think so if she is guilty she can plead insanity if she would need to.
As the mother of two daughters I always want for my daughters what I feel was lacking in my life. It makes sense to me that Nanny’s idea of success and freedom is being wealthy and idle. That was what was literally beaten into Nanny. I think in real life, as with Nanny, mothers can get so blinded by their own agenda and their attempt to fulfill their own dreams through their daughter that they don’t stop to ask what their child wants. While I understand that this may not be the ideal way to handle a situation, I believe that Nanny did the best she could considering her experiences.
At birth, Pearl brought joy, to her Hester’s life; she gave Hester’s hope for a better future. But, there were times when those feeling changed due to Pearl out of the ordinary character. However, Hester never stopped loving her daughter. She gave everything up to be the best mother and paid the biggest price which was her reputation, love, community and friendship. As we see, at a chance of loosing her child Hester exclaimed, "I will not lose the child!"
.” (Ibsen. I. 387) First, the fact that Nora almost had to ask permission to hold her own child shows that she doesn’t quite view herself suitable to be a mother. Second, she refers to her child as her “little doll baby.” This makes the children seem almost like toys or props to Nora; they aren’t real, they’re just play-things. To reiterate this notion of toys, she also says, “.
Romeo and Juliet are failed by their parental figures; discuss. One theme that is represented throughout the entirety of the Shakespearian play ‘Romeo and Juliet’ is the idea of parents and children. Not only is this shown through Juliet’s relationship with her parents and Romeo’s with his, but also through their relationships with other characters who act as parental figures to them despite not being blood relations. These surrogate parent relationships are predominantly the Nurse to Juliet, and Friar Lawrence to Romeo. Different events throughout the play lead these relationships to change, and lead both Romeo and Juliet to distrust their parental figures.
I strongly agree with the Peggy Orenstein’s article. In my opinion, we have to forget the stereotypes that had been thought for years. Is a girl predisposed to play with pretty dolls wearing pink clothes? Definitely not. By only handing a girl pink playthings for the first three years of her life, she may decide pink is her favorite color because “that’s what girls like.” In fact, researchers think that parents and other social factors lead children to prefer gender-specific toys.
When Lil Bit first began being taken advantage of she didn’t know what was happening and that it wasn’t ok. She didn’t have someone like Sister A. there to tell her that she needed to be protected. Similar to the way that Father Flynn is presented as a overall good guy, Vogel attempted to create Uncle Peck as a very flawed human being, using pathos in order to try to make the reader connect with him. However its not that simple to make the audience connect with a pedophile. Lil Bit has a monologue where she pities her uncle and wonders what happened to him to make
However Lennie also has an antagonistic side to his character, mainly because of his actions throughout the novel. The fact that we have a character stating this from rumours, means that the writer is in-fact giving a biased opinion, and expressing his opinion through Candy. “… An’I seen her give Carlson the eye.” Curley’s wife has been appalled with Curley so much; her discontent is
Hester's vivid passion and beauty, her humanity, is at once her downfall and her saving grace. The ability to stand firm in the face of adversity takes a great toll, but emerging from the darkness and actively living can lead to endless possibilities. Many characters throughout the story, such as Hester, Pearl, and Dimmesdale experienced isolation, the consequence of sin In conclusion, the theme with the greatest magnitude of importance in Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter is isolation. Many characters from various parts of the story experience it. Examples like Hester’s alienation during the scaffold scene, Pearl being shunned by children, and Dimmesdale’s isolation caused by his thoughts and intentions contributed to the novel’s prestige and grandeur.
“Is your man secret? Did you ne'er hear say, ‘Two may keep counsel, putting one away’?” (2.5.185-186). By allowing and even helping Juliet to keep her marriage from her parents, the nurse digs them both into a bigger hole with each lie that passes her lips and every time she helps Romeo and Juliet instead of going to the parents. Had she told the truth the deaths of the young lovers could have easily been avoided, but the Nurse continued to feed people disinformation. In Juliet’s most time of need, she goes on to say “(Romeo) Hath not so green, so quick, so fair an eye As Paris hath.”(3.5.222-223).
