The Gaitas each faced their own fears of unable to belong, but none so as much as Christina who dies to the loneliness of been unable to fit in. “He found her just staring into the fire” describes Raymond, illustrating how desperate his mother had been. As a result she is characterized as ‘appearing to be cheerful and vivacious’ but in truth ‘deeply depressed.’ Christina is an allusion of the displaced socialite hungry for a sense of fulfillment and security, in a place where she cannot get the acceptance she seeks; she wants to ‘fall asleep and die”. She feels geographically and culturally displaced, as a result she never settles into Frogmore. Raymond uses a series of fragmented repetitions to convey the alienation felt by Christina.
Mrs. Dubose, a sick, old lady may not be one whose courage shows on her exterior. This woman often criticized Jem and Scout and other children who passed the porch where she was confined. Mrs. Dubose suffered as a morphine-addict, whose pain-killers often led her to say nasty things to the children about anything she could think up, mostly about their father being a nigger-lover. She would also tell Scout that she shouldn’t be wearing overalls, and should dress like a lady. Her fits could be described as reaching out for attention, and fighting against the sickness that was slowly breaking down her system, however; it was also the medicine that put her in such pain and caused her to strike out at others.
Her hopes to be in "pitchers" are similar to the men on this ranch, who also have their own dreams. She represents what it means to fail and how painful it is for someone to live with this. Her last conversation with Lennie is a part of the novella where we sympathise with her as a reader and realise we all have our own dreams too. It makes sense that this would be the instant that ends up killing her, a reminder that the pain of failed dreams can be a form of death in its own way. This is also the main part of the novella as it leads to Lennies death which was previously foreshadowed by the death of Candy’s dog.
She thought that herself was the problem, which made T rye aggressive and it was her fault not T-rays. So lilies faction was to improve it by leaving her dad and taking the only person who respected her Roselyn.. Rosalyn was alway a motherly figure to her worrying about her need and never let T rye effect her negatively But she knew lilys consequences (CD). Her dads sympathy for hus daughter is very minimal because she lie is becoming rality that she was the on that mad ehis wife and lilys mom leave/die. Lilys has many influences but the strongest pushed her to leave her home and wanted her to find her own way in life because she wasn't gonna deal with her dads abuse. Lily wants to be a writer, and has this fascination with bees.
I can’t even look at that part of myself” (ANDERSON, 28). Again, Melinda is expressing her hopelessness by belittling her self worth. She is disgusted with herself because society has a way of turning the tables on victims , making them feel a sense of hopelessness in their situations. Victim blaming is no new concept, and it is tragic that it has not yet been eradicated. Melinda experiences victim blaming from her peers, no doubt because Andy Evans, the schools pride and joy, was the attacker.
The Faults in Human Nature In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird, the author Harper Lee highlights the negative aspects of human nature through the eyes of a 7-year-old girl named Scout. Throughout the novel there are situations where the people of Maycomb fall under the influence of their neighbours, leading them to bring out a repugnant side of themselves. The townsfolk were filled with prejudice against the blacks in their community simply for the fact that they did not understand the way they live. This is usually caused by heredity because children are taught from a young age only one opinion, and presume it is right. Sadly, not knowing any better, they discriminate against them, not knowing what else to do.
II. In “The Yellow Wallpaper” the author uses irony to show how ironic it is that she is so ill and is not getting the proper treatment even though john, her husband is a doctor (Charlotte Perkins Gilman) Pg 10. a. I sometimes fancy that in my condition if I had less opposition and more society and stimulus but John says the very worse thing I can so is to think about my condition, and I confess it always makes me feel bad. i. This quote from the book shows that John knows she is ill but all he says is to not think about it. ii.
“Miss Maudie’s voice was enough to shut up anybody” (51). She stands up for her beliefs and despises racism unlike many other residents in Maycomb. In other words, Miss Maudie shows independence and differs from most people because she believes in equality. Another of Miss Maudie’s bravery takes place after her house burnt down and she says “Scout don’t worry about me, there are other ways to deal with things” (79). Miss Maudie knows that life will, at some stage, contain suffering but its severity will be amplified if you do not learn to let go.
