I think Ismene changed her mid because Antigone is her sister and you always stand up for family. She didn’t want to commit the crime because she was trying to talk Antigone out of doing the crime. In the end Ismene is the only one who lives and has a kind of guilt free life. She may not have family left besides Creon but at least she tried to save them. I think out all the characters she made the smarter choices and she thought about the consequences.
Hannah begs you to keep this confidential and not tell anyone especially her daughter, who she sees regularly, as her daughter will be very angry. Bi) How would you explain the term ‘confidentiality’ to Hannah? I would explain to Hannah that I do respect her wish to keep this information ‘confidential’, however due to the nature of the information she has divulged, I would have to inform management as she is putting herself at risk by throwing her medication away. This is not following her careplans and the medication has been prescribed to her for a reason and due to her regularly becoming ‘confused’ we cannot be sure that she is fully aware on what the medication is for. I would explain that we can keep certain things confidential such as opinions and beliefs but if information effects their received care or personal wellbeing/health then I have a duty of care to act upon this but only on a ‘needs to know’ basis.
By being able to understand her father without him using words shows how similar they are, and how much they understand each other. In a way, she is also categorizing her mother, and later on her sister, with the sinners, furthering her critical attribute. Another defining feature shared among the family members, is the prim and proper attitude towards everything. When the family is attempting to meet their sixty-one pound maximum requirement, Leah says even when they are “trimming” back it does not help them reach that constraint. Rather than saying, “cutting” back, as most would, she says the more gracious thing, offering insight into her upbringing as well as her parent’s parenting styles for the reader.
One observation that I made about Faye, from A Secret Sorrow, is that she is always thinking of her family members before herself. Instead of feeling sorry for herself, she is more concerned about how her condition will make Kai react. Then once the two of them adopt their three children, she takes advantage of the time she has with her them that she thought she would never have. On the other hand, the woman from A Sorrowful Woman hides herself from her family even though she knows the time she has with them will be cut short. She did not take advantage of precious time that she
Rosaleen believes that Lily should just leave the topic alone and that she may discover something she just does not want to know. Rosaleen fears that Lily will be more hurt by her discoveries in finding her past that happy and relieved, “ ‘Maybe she was. I can’t say. I just know some things are better left alone.’ ‘What do you mean? That I shouldn’t find out what I can about my own mother?’ ‘What if—’ She paused and rubbed the back of her neck, ‘What if you find out something you don’t wanna know?’ " (Kidd, 100) Another controversial view studied by Emanuel states that Lily must confront the hardship of her mother’s death head on and that it may have a
While in her mother’s eyes, she only supported her daughter and craved the absolute best for her child. Schwind-Pawlak presents this argument poorly due to her change of heart towards the end of the essay. She does not stick to her beginning argument which causes the opposition to lack stability. The two authors support their arguments by providing evidence. The supporting evidence of the two essay’s help reveal the hardships teenagers face while dealing with their parents.
He was able to help bring my mother back to her children. In the beginning it was rocky getting to trust him, but eventually I began to trust them both. Today, I have back my nurturing, loving, and God fearing mother. In conclusion, a memory of heartache and tragedy no longer has a hold on my life. Witnessing my mother going through her struggles and overcome her addiction crack to gain her life and family back has helped me to see there is a future.
Typically, a husband who can’t consummate a marriage should be abandoned without hesitation. When Bertrande is “urged by her relatives to separate from Martin, she firmly refuse[s]” (28). This decision reveals Bertrande’s “certain character traits…a concern for her reputation as a woman, a stubborn independence” (28). Bertrande cleverly calculates the advantages she possesses as a result of Martin’s incompetence. “Her refusal to have her marriage dissolved…freed her temporarily from certain wifely duties…gave her a chance to have a girlhood” (28).
Not everything in life will bring happiness, but with the help and support of loved ones, anybody should be able to find resolutions to their problems and move on with their lives. For Faye, she was on the verge of giving up hope because of extreme dissatisfaction with herself, but since she had the love and support of Kai, her worst fear ended with true
We can see that she feels guilty because she had already promised Maggie the quilt but as she feels that Dee is superior than her she also wants her to keep just to probably not having an argument with her.We Her word choice gave me the image that she might even be a little scared of her daughters Dee knowledge. While with Maggie she seems to feel equal and probably favors her in the way that she knows that she won’t let her heritage down but most importantly she would very feel embarrassed of where she came from. As dee showed whenever she was younger and would never take friends over. If it was written in any other point of view we wouldn’t be able to sense all the emotional feelings that the narrator is able to transmit by writing in first person. It would be only as if they were trying to explain what another is feeling.
