Suffering and pain, relationships and risk are major themes in Five Parts Dead and almost always explored in contemporary adolescent fiction novels because they are common topics that young adults encounter in their everyday lives. Suffering and pain occurs when you have a bad experience and hurt either physically or mentally as a result of it. There are many possible bad experiences that could result in suffering and pain, for example, in The Perks of Being a Wallflower by Stephen Choosby, the main character, Charlie experiences mental pain as a result of depression, his best friend's suicide and the memory of abuse, he says, 'there is so much pain and I don't know how to not notice it'. While Dan on the other hand in Five Parts Dead, suffers from both mental and physical pain from the car accident. Dan broke his leg in the accident and he feels 'like roofing nails are being belted into my busted foot', while he suffers mentally because he lost three of his best mates.
I believe this is not only true for the women’s stories in this book, but true for all women. It is very hard for to pick one particular story within this book that touched me the most, they were all powerful and had such interesting details. However in chapter two “Prohibition and Prostitution” they speak about how people get away with enslaving and trafficking village girls. The idea is to crush modern slavery, but for political reasons this does not always happen. It is known that crackdowns do exist and with the right help, training and rehabilitations these girls and women can feel they have purpose and worth.
He was just enslaved to drinking, watching the game of soccer and sex. She worked for her family. Manka is a clever wife. However her husband didn't allow her interfere in any of his cases at the beginning otherwise he would turn her out of his house, because Manka lived in those times when women were considered inferior to men. She solved the problems that burgomaster gave her, as well as made a game of her marriage with the burgomaster.
Also Wes had been getting into trouble, and his mother knew that needed to change. Thankfully Wes’s mother could do this with a little help from her parents, and two jobs. On the opposing side, the other Wes Moore wasn’t so lucky. His mother failed to care for his future. She was heavily involved with drugs, and Wes’s only “father figure” was his older brother.
Antigone and her sister, Ismene are together in two scenes, the prologue and the second scene. They always argue because of their different opinions. Ismene feels that although she loved her brother, he is dead, and they should respect the law and not bury him with honor. The other contrasts come between Creon and the guard and Haimon, who is Creon’s son, in the third scene. Creon and Antigone also contrast in the way they live.
This shows that although Daisy loved him she chose her family over him even though she wasn’t very happy with the decision. For many people money is an important aspect of life. Daisy found money and social status very important in order to keep her somewhat ‘happy’ by getting anything she wanted. Tom Buchanan gave Daisy lots of material things in order to do this. For example of page 74, it quotes that Daisy receives ‘a string on pearls’ the day before her wedding to Tom but also on the same say she also get a letter from her former lover Gatsby, gets drunk after reading it and has a moment where she hesitates about marrying Tom but after she sobers up she ‘squeezed it up in a wet ball……And walked out of the room, the pearls around her neck and the incident was over’ as it also quotes on pages 74 and 75.
The book The Color Purple by Alice Walker and the movie The Color Purple directed by Steven Spielberg share the same story line and characters. The novel and the movie have more similarities than differences yet they still explain the theme of womanhood. The similarities that are shared are really important and have to do mainly with the plot. For example, Celie's stepfather raped her, she had two children because of that, and they were given to Samuel and Corrine. Another similarity is that some of the dialogue is in letter form like the book.
Domestic violence is now understood to extend beyond physical violence and beyond the home. Woman’s aid and many other specialist services define domestic violence as a range of abuse, including physical, sexual, mental, emotional or psychological violence. The perpetrator may be a woman’s husband, boyfriend, cohabite, ex partner or other close family member. (www.womansaid.org.uk) In general violence may be systematic and long term, it can occur anywhere although is most likely to occur in the home, as the home is behind closed doors, away from the public eye. It is also the place where emotions run highest, for women the home offers safety, away from the pressures of the outside world.
In all of these works there are three main categories of violence that should be considered: adult verses adult, adult verses child, and child verses child. It is common knowledge that there is violence in the world. This violence takes many forms; sometimes it is physical, other times it is emotional, and even at times it is verbal violence. No age is free from violence on either end of the conflict. Adults are probably most commonly viewed as the perpetrators of violence in the world.
The media largely influences every child and teens views and judgment. So now, if children and teens are learning sexist views, most of them would be getting them from the media. Media includes everything from the music world, to what is on TV every night, to what models wear on the runway, to what the latest gossip is on the gossip magazines. Almost everything in the media defies women as an object rather then an equal to men- especially the music world. The lyrics of a lot of rap song are so sexist, they mention hurting, beating, slapping and even killing women.
