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.
She saw it as “broken”, “fractured” or “limited” English. “I was ashamed of her English.” she said. However, what she considered as “broken” English began revealing its own charm for the other thing. In other words, the author started to look at her mother’s English with different perspective. She had this feeling that behind her mother’s imperfect English resides a wonderful expression of beauty, a beauty she wondered at.
The short story: ‘A Warm Golden Brown’ written by Alexander Reid explores the important theme of racial prejudice. Two young and innocent children playing contentedly together, but the overhang of racism still shines though. Mrs Preedy, Ben’s mother is a very racist woman and forbids Ben from playing with Daisy. Mrs Preedy is conveyed to be a racist tyrant, but also hypocritical as she covers her skin in fake tan to darken her skin tone. Reid’s effective title has positive connotations, the words ‘‘warm’’ and ‘’golden’’ suggest that Reid likes the colour of Daisy’s skin tone and shows empathy towards the coloured community.
Probably the most destructive ideas in the history of human thought. Both originated in envy, thrived in insecurity, and ended in disillusion.” This quote ties in all the themes of the Bluest Eyes, love, beauty, and an un-escapable fall into despair while chasing the first two. The image of Shirley Temple and white baby dolls are central to the meaning of the novel. Adults don’t try to undermine the power that Shirley Temple has on the girls of this novel. Instead they show praise towards her and her whiteness by buying white baby dolls, even for black girls.
She is like no other individual, different in every way, making her more complex and captivating. Jane Eyre appeals to me because although she is not beautiful, she is intelligent; she is not sweet but forgiving; and she is not affectionate but faithful. She goes forward even when all odds are against her. In Cinderella, Cinderella is a poor, unfortunate girl who has nothing; however, when she goes to the ball and sees the prince, he falls in love with her because of her beauty. Like Cinderella Jane is a poor, unfortunate girl when growing up.
Ariel is a revolutionary. She’s an unapologetic rebel with her own feelings and desires which separates her from other princesses such as Cinderella, Snow white and Sleeping beauty. Thirdly, Ariel and her crush Prince Eric. Ariel is a sixteen year old girl who is bad at making good decisions about love. Also, Why doesn’t Prince Eric marry her soon of the bat?
Reality theme that prevails thoughout Charles Dickens's classic novel. From the first meeting of Pip with Estella, Pip falls victim to believing in appearances. The beautiful, haughty girl whose name means "star" is elevated in Pip's esteem simply because she lives with the rich Miss Havisham and is dressed in lovely clothes and speaks in a deprecating way to him, calling him "common." Immediately, because this vision of superior loveliness who speaks properly has termed him "common," Pip experiences a humiliation. But, despite her cruel ways, Pip falls hopelessly in love with the beautiful Estella, perhaps even because she is unattainable.
A Lack of Female Friendships In Jane Eyre, Charlotte Bronte uses Jane’s dislike of the traditional female role in society, her dissent against the Evangelical model of submissive women, and her seeking of a homo-power relationship as a psychological representation of a type of woman in the 19th century Victorian society to criticize the negative effect society had on women like Jane. In spite of Jane’s many attempts to gain her version of an ideal female friendship, Jane is largely unable to have the long-lasting, intense relationship that she finds with Rochester at the end, with any female characters. It appears that the reason for this absence of female relationships is Jane’s active seeking of confrontation, which shows her rebelliousness against the traditional role of women in Victorian society and her non-submissive, masculine personality and explains the failures of her relationships with Mary, Diana and Miss. Temple. Through this, Charlotte Bronte implies that the women who rebelled against their role in society had a hard time finding people to relate to or be friends with.
It's no accident that Browning uses the word "fall": that word has some pretty negative connotations. For one, the word implies sin (Victorian moralists referred to women who had sex outside of marriage as "fallen women"). So maybe Porphyria's free, "fallen" hair symbolizes the irrevocable step she's taken in coming, alone, to see her lover? * Line 18: This is the first time the speaker describes the color of Porphyria's hair: "yellow." Blondness is often associated with angelic purity and with children.
She was innocent, happy, and so opposed to marriage that she "shunned / The wealthy curled darlings of our nation" (1.2.68). Brabantio is a little scornful of the "darlings," but to him it seems natural that Desdemona would be attracted to them. (After all, this is an age in which men wore lace and used curling irons on their long hair, so everyone thought an attractive man had the sort of juvenile sweetness that inspires American 13-year old girls to say "really, really, cute!") But it's unnatural, says Brabantio to Othello, for Desdemona to run from her home "to the sooty bosom / Of such a thing as thou -- to fear, not to delight" (1.2.70-71). [Scene Summary] ________________________________________ In the Senate chamber, after Brabantio has charged Othello with using drugs and magic on Desdemona, First Senator has a crucial question for Othello: "Did you by indirect and forced courses / Subdue and poison this young maid's affections?
