The poet has done this on purpose to set the dark mood for the rest of the poem where Medusa talks about her anger. The disturbing physical appearance of Medusa creates a sense of horror. She is said to be ‘foul mouthed’ and ‘foul tongued’, as well as ‘yellow fanged’. The repetition of ‘foul’ creates an unpleasant image of the women and the word ‘fanged’ makes her seem monstrous. Medusa is described in a very negative manner.
“I never saw a worse paper in my life.” As the narrative develops, her later feelings start to contradict her initial emotions and her behaviour becomes more irrational. “...It is like the colour of the paper! A yellow smell.” The suggestion of the wallpaper having a smell indicates a lingering odour which is perhaps metaphoric of the woman having the wallpaper consistently on her mind. She has become so entirely absorbed by the wallpaper that she is now letting it dictate her senses. As the story develops the woman’s descent into madness can start to be seen more clearly as she reveals her obsessive and protective nature over the wallpaper.

Zachary Holland ENGL 2328 Dr. Wilson March 18, 2014 A Rose for Miss Emily This story really threw me for a loop. I really loved it and when I read the ending it was like holy crap did that just happen? Mrs. Grierson lives in her own little world of entrapment. She has been hurt so many times before by people talking bad about her behind her back and with her father leaving her so early by dying and leaving her with knowing basically nothing about life since he trapped her from the world that she feels the need to trap the last true love of her life Mr. Barron. So the true causes of evil are her father trapping her and keeping her away from people and men so long that she literally ends up crazy.
By slut shaming, the blame is actually pushed from the criminal to the victim, from the rapist to the raped, an action of victim blaming. In other words, people are actually telling the victims that it served them right for being sexually assaulted just because they wear a spaghetti strap top with a pair of shorts in a hot summer day. Through slut shaming, it is also seen as discrimination against women. Why are women always restricted but not the men? Taliban banned women from receiving proper education but men have the privilege to be educated; Women are not allowed to walk topless in public as it is considered indecent exposure, but men could always show off their defined abs without someone making a call to the police.
I went to visit my mom in Des Moines and my Aunt finally emailed her at school. She was not able to use telephones or her cell phone, so email was the only way to keep in contact with her. She was not able to get home till later that night, because the police would not let her across the Brooklyn Bridge. Then, ten days 14 days later, we got a call from her asking us to buy her a gas mask. She said it is absolutely horrible smelling because of all the dust and 6,000 rotting bodies.
Williams keys in the trash can and make her miss her doctors appointment?” She asked over and over getting the same response out of me. “I don’t even know what you’re talking about, why would I throw Mrs, Williams’ keys away? I love Mrs. Williams!” I stated over and over as my eyes began to water and eventually I lost control of my emotions. I must have been in her office for a good hour denying everything she asked me, because I knew deep down in my heart it was not me. I then proclaimed to her in tears, “All I did was hide her chalk in the flower pot!” At that point I was just ready to go back to the class because this lady was intimidating and persistent with her masculine figure yelling and screaming in my face.
It’s not easy for Connie to live with her mother, who constantly harps on the way Connie looks and how she doesn’t live up to her sister reputation. “If Connie’s name was mentioned it was in a disapproving tone.”. Every time Connie’s mother comments anything about June’s profile, it pushed Connie unconsciously to be nothing like her sister. Mother usually complained about her about habit of looking into a mirror. The narrator states the mother’s resentment of Connie’s beauty because “her looks were gone and that was why she was always after Connie.”.
