The way Buddy talks about Esther I think affects her. When somebody you care about makes you feel like crap that it really takes a toll on you. You want to how much you appreciate and admire the person you care about, not have them dampen them with a lack of interest, making yourself feel better, and a misunderstanding of how to treat a woman. Esther idolizes Buddy but he never really felt the same way about her as he looked at her more as a sex partner. The novel talks about things regarding sexism by showing how Buddy's sense of manliness and superiority is built on what he thinks of himself, not who he actually is, hypocritical in a sense.

Despite the fact that he and his wife have been “mean and fought dirty” he knows they must break down these walls of anger and resentment, “no matter how much work it requires” (442).

Thirdly, Paul allowed his wife creating disturbance in the company, spreading his abnormal behavior at home and caused him in the center of attention, which also put his bosses in dilemma of how to dealing with his issue, and challenged their management credibility. Last and most important, he denied what he had done were wrong, and blamed all faults on his boss Sean Williams. He blamed William for creating the stress that prevented him from doing anything, and refused to take his responsibilities. Paul Hardy perfectly meets Zaleznik’s definition of compulsive subordinates.
Feminist Criticism of “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman In Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s short story, “The Yellow Wallpaper”, the nameless protagonist is a woman who is completely isolated and has no say in anything that regards her own life.

She has to go everywhere we go.” When John Wesley was asked by the grandmother what he would do if confronted by the Misfit his reply was, “I’d smack his face.” But in the end we find this to be very untrue. The Misfit’s character is again the result of the breakdown in humanity, family values and all of the values that have been lost in today’s culture. The Misfit may have some social graces because he responds respectfully and apologizes to the grandmother for Bailey’s harsh comment, but there is some uneasiness about the morals his own father had as a role model. There is a hint that the Misfit’s father had a darker side and had some run-ins with the authorities. The Misfit explained to the grandmother, “Daddy was a card himself.
When Mel talks about love, due to the words he uses and how he uses them, he gives off a sense that he has a solid idea of what love, even though he’s not really any closer than everyone else. Later on, as he begins to get drunk, it seems as if he is less and less sure of what he thinks it means.
