Many men fell for this and in my opinion she became very powerful in a sense. I believe Cathy was a very selfish character. While reading East of Eden I thought that she might have had mental problems. I was furious that she tried to kill her baby and later on lied about why say tried to do such a thing. Then when she gave birth to her twins sons, she acted as if she did not want them and I believe that Cathy was selfish was because she shot her husband in the shoulder.
Mr Birling’s, who showed no sorrow or sympathy for a former employee's death, was ruthless in dismissing her after the strike. Accusing her of being a ringleader. Reinstating all the other employees, except her, must have been very demoralising to Ms Smith. Moreover, Mr Croft, showed nor compassion or sympathy for a former lover, despite the fact that he claimed they had separated on amicable terms. I believe that he lying and that he left this woman in a state of distress that contributed to her state of mind when she committed suicide.
I get the feeling that she was sick from before because of the fact that she killed her husband and went into hiding. I also sympathize with her because if my husband or any family member was brain dead I kind-of would’ve wanted to end their suffering too but at least stick around to do the time after, instead of running away like you planned it. Maybe while her husband was “dead” she snapped and just couldn’t take it anymore, standing around waiting for your loved one to die is just horrible, and maybe during that timing she just had a break down physiologically, and emotionally.
From this story, it is obvious that Miss Shi was wrong and had caused death upon a righteous man. Therefore, when these kinds of problems and misunderstandings happen, people started considering women as troublemakers. And from then on, women’s status in the society only gets lower. However, each individual has different personalities and not everyone is the same, people should not judge all women as the same because of examples like “Chaste Woman
Its just I cant help thinking about this girl-destroying her life so horribly.’ This shows Sheila feels commiseration and sensitivity towards Eva and her death which comes across as genuine regret when she realises she could be linked to her suicide. Mr Birling interrupts her questioning by becoming even more aggressive when trying to defend her daughter. The phrase ‘why the devil do you want to go upsetting a child like that’ that he uses shows he is more concerned that his daughter has been affected by feelings of guilt and shame for what they might have done to Eva Smith. He doesn’t realise the depth of the familys involvement and still feels able to be bitter and outspoken towards the inspector. However, this does impact the inspector at all because he continues his questioning with Sheila further.
the defense lawyer for the Sarah Good witchcraft trial, and I am pleading for you to compromise and understand the facts. Sarah Good may have been part of the lower class and was looked down upon but she was well known by some of her neighbors she had seemed to be “pleasant and friendly.” You have come up with these wild attacks on my client, has it occurred to you that all these accusations may merely be lies from the community to get rid of this innocent human. “Sarah Good what evil spirit have you familiarity with?” “The Examination of Sarah Good” Without solid evidence you try to prove my client guilty and constantly abuse your powers to harass her. From these three children you bring your judgments they are not to be trusted, they
I believe that when they first got married there was some kind of love in their relationship, but when they realized they could not conceive a child Don Elias blamed his wife. Even though it was most likely he was the infertile one, he treated her as if all she was good for was to take care of him like a maid. This is what made her a hard, bitter old woman. Dona Matilida believes it was her fault, and feels guilty about not being able to provide him with a child he so greatly desired. This caused her to turn a blind eye to what he was doing around town with other women.
The causes of her death was the buildup of guilt in her. In this quote Lady Macbeth was trying to wash off her guilt by using the word blood in comparison. She feels remorseful for her husband sin. They have killed many innocent people to cover up their past faults. Thus this was what she meant by not even the perfume of Arabia can cover up her guilty sin.
She became mean too since she was lonely and the men rejected her. Curley’s wife was so lonely that she looked like a desperate, sour woman but when she died “the meanness and the plannings and the discontent and the ache for attention were all gone from her face. She was very pretty and simple, and her face was sweet and young.” (Steinbeck109). Loneliness had affected Curley’s wife so much that the only time she looked happy and in peace when she died. Loneliness had made her so much harm in the way that she was better off dead because she did not have the lonely feeling anymore and she looked like what she was- a young sweet, pretty, simple girl.
She is a lair, manipulated her family, hypocritical and judgmental. In the end, the story suggests she died with divine grace but who can know that for sure? Did the Grandmother want forgiveness for her sins? The story does not lead us in that direction. Up until the very end the Grandmother appears to be trying to save her life any way she can.
