When two people marry it should be because they love each other not because of money and the pressures from you family. F. Scott Fitzgerald describes the lives of Daisy and Tom Buchanan and also Daisy’s former lover, Jay Gatsby. In this novel ‘The Great Gatsby’ the conflict occurs when Daisy is about to marry Tom but finds out that Gatsby wants to resurrect their previous relationship. Family pressure, money and love are ideas presented in the passage through characterisation and symbolism and the reader is encouraged to disagree with Daisy’s actions. In many families there are conflicts or disagreements.
Lively calls her a Cottage loaf of a woman. She is very affectionate she offers the kids a “chocky” and refers to them as “ducks” Mrs Rutter’s language to Sandra is uncomfortably familiar (‘You’re a pretty girl, Sandra, pretty as they come’; ‘You’ll be courting before long yourself, I don’t doubt. Like bees round the honeypot they’ll be’; ‘Mind your pretty skirt, pull it up a bit, there’s only me to see if you’re showing a bit of bum’; ‘You’ve a lovely shape Sandra. Take care you stay that way’) which suggest to the reader that something’s not quite right about the old lady .However we then begin to see that Mrs Rutter’s language shows how cold, callous and uncaring she is: ‘He must have been a tough bastard. He was still there that evening, but in the morning he was dead.’ Kerry’s reaction is confident and mature: ‘Two bloody nights.
Curley’s wife is portrayed as being a whore – but this is only due to the way she dresses, her provocative ways and the way she acts around men, as if she is aware of her femininity. This could suggest that she is only like this because she is bored, like it is something to do – something interesting for a change. She is constantly trying to get people to notice her. But, because of Lennie’s purity and innocence, he doesn’t see her in the way other men do – a sexual object. When Steinbeck quotes “And because she had confided in him, she moved closer to Lennie and sat beside him”, it is clear to the audience that Curley’s Wife is using her sexuality as an object to create some sort of excitement for herself.
Pot bellied pigs are very unique and individualistic. Their Personalities are always one of a kind, just like dogs. Many piglets shy away from being picked up or touched very much, but this soon changes once you and your piglet bond. They usually become very affectionate and pretty much a lap “dog”. Piglets often tend to have trust issues with their new owners and that may take some time to work through.
In addition, she fed her pet dogs fancy food, including fine white bread, which was nicer than what some people had to eat (lines 146-7). Although we are told that she was of the church, there are many details in the General Prologue that lead we readers to believe that she actually had roots in the nobility. After reading the description of Madame Eglantine, the Prioresse, it’s easy to see that she is a nun, who has some noble characteristics. However, there is much more to be interpreted from the story. One example of the irony of her character is the fact that she is now a nun.
In contrast, Oates begins her version of the tale midway through the relationship. Anna does not seem to have such a negative perspective of men, rather she is just distrustful. Anna’s thoughts of me are “What did it mean to enter into a bond with another person?” (221) “No she did not really trust him; she did not really trust men” (221). From the beginning of each of the stories, both Anna and Dmitry’s distinctively different points of view of members of the opposite sex are apparent. However, through the life of the affair each of their perspectives of the opposite sex softens.
He reiterates, however, that his reasons are based on merit. He feels Sonya’s high level of enthusiasm may be a detriment to her work performance because customers may be turned off by it. He also suggests that Jacqueline would be better choice because she is married. Paul disagrees but, in the end, Robert states that they will go with Jacqueline and see how it works out. The two generate an interesting debate; however they might lose their credibility because Robert brought the fact that Jacqueline was married which is not job related and could be discriminatory to unmarried applicant while Paul he continually refer about Sonya’s enthusiasm and could be the selling point but this is not also offer any substantial reasons for her preference.
The practice of polygamy distorts the meaning of marriage. Goodman says that "defenders argue that polygamous marriages are freely entered, freely left, well protected by law or custom" (pg 90). I believe this type of marriage is wrong for the women involved and it breaks down the institution of marriage. The women are denied the intended bond they are to have with a husband. Not being able to have this bond disables her trust and intimacy with her husband, these are meant to strengthen a relationship and marriage.
It was like we were wearing the same dress to the prom. Dorothy thought her landing here was fate—that it made her special. Another girl from Kansas meant that it was just a regular occurrence and that she wasn’t special at all. Or—worse—that I was here to take her place. She loves torturing animals, and there was a scene involving a mouse that was truly painful to read.
This therefore can explain the choice of words – however it isn’t funny justified; he is also aggressive. However he may also be telling off Lennie because he likes her, but this is more of a guess; he may in a way be getting defensive, so that Lennie stops looking at her and then he can try himself. This once again proves that she is though negatively against amongst the men. Up to this point we haven’t seen much of Curley’s wife – therefore she has just been referred to as ‘Curley’s wife’; also she has only been married two weeks, so they may not have been properly introduced to her or even know her. This suggests how little respect women were given in that particular time period; Curley’s wife is a woman, and therefore not good enough to have an actual name.
