The desperation of the hunt is the desperation of economical survival (301). This would be the case of the Bennet family. Due to the misfortune of only having daughters, Mr. and Mrs. Bennet have to try to marry their daughters to respectable young men to survive. Elizabeth knows the importance of being married to a fortunate man, but she also wonders about the happiness the marriage will bring. She knew that if she had accepted Mr. Collins proposal it would bring unhappiness to both “you couldn’t make me happy, and I am convince that I am the last women in the world to make you so” (73).
The DeRosier’s were also the ones who shattered her dreams of a perfect family by saying “We take you in because your parents don’t want you"(35). The DeRosier’s left April with a shame of her background and an even deeper shame for her parents. Even though the DeRosier’s did so much bad for April and her identity, they still did some good for her. They made such an horrible environment but April stayed strong and grew as a person. She even said “I could let the DeRosier’s suck out my dignity for now and I could pretend they had me where they wanted me.
Medea is hurting other people by trying to get revenge on Jason. I believe Medea causes more damage to other characters then Jason. Medea is the antagonist because she betrays her family to go live with Jason. Medea’s nurse wishes she never met Jason because she would have never betrayed her family or left anyone behind “She would never have seen Jason nor loved and saves him, nor cut herself off from home to come with him.”(Euripides 85) If Medea didn’t meet Jason she would not have fell in love with him, left her family behind, and caused damage to the people Jason loved. Medea wouldn’t cause damage to others if she had no motivation to.
Each class was clearly defined with unofficially enforced boundaries, and members of the system knew their place. A Woman’s Place Women in Victorian society were given very limited roles. Before the industrial revolution, women used to be seen as just accessories to their husbands’ success and had to be ever-supportive of the men in their lives. They
She is the perfect example of how women of her level of society were supposed to act in her day. The circumstances surrounding Gatsby and Daisy's relationship kept them eternally apart. For Daisy to have been with Gatsby would have been forbidden, due to the fact that she was married. Marriage at the time was all about finding a suitable match, not about finding the one you truly loved. This means that even society makes love unobtainable and we can see that through the fact that Daisy’s mum wasn’t even supportive of her love for Gatsby when she had found her “packing her
Alina is constantly watching herself making sure that she doesn’t get on Mrs. Kong’s bad side, which would be horrible because she could end up getting fired and after that she will get deported and then she will have nothing to offer her family. On top of that her daughter doesn’t recognize who she is and as for her husband who knows what he could be doing so far away. Later on in the story Mr. Kong also comes out with the truth and end up telling Alina how madly in love he is with her and of course although that is her boss she would not allow him to continue and try to kiss her, so she end up going to jail. After being in jail assuming that is basically the end for her, Mrs. Kong comes out of nowhere and bails
“The picture of that girl, the fact that she had lived neighbor to that girl for twenty years, and had let her die for lack of life, was suddenly more than [Mrs. Hale] could bear” (194). She feels responsible and blames herself for what has happened to Minnie. She believes that the reason that she stayed away - “because it weren’t cheerful” (192) was the very reason she should have gone to see Minnie. She reacts to her refusal to visit Minnie as a crime in itself. “Oh, I wish I’d come over here once in a while!” she cried.
From the beginning when we were first introduced to Dee, we find that she has changed her name to Wangero saying that Dee is “dead” because she didn’t think her name, Dicie, had any cultural significance and so she choice a name she felt suited her more. She says she couldn’t bear being named after people who oppress her. She has no connection or respect with her family. This is sad because she doesn’t like who she once was. Although she has learned a lot from her schooling and has a better knowledge than her mom & sister, I feel she possesses this know-it-all attitude about what heritage really is.
If looking from a business mind the firing her is quite adequate, although looking at her personal issues then this was more than likely unfair in here eyes. Although Birling did fire her and leave her jobless, is this a reason to put the blame on him? I think not. As I mentioned before previous decision relating to Evas life cant be directly associated to why she chose to take her own life. Many things many have contributed but firing her
In “Little Women: Alcott’s Civil War” (1979), Judith Fetterly argues that the four sisters of Alcott’s Little Women (1868) are denied their dreams because “Little women marry, however, not only because they lack economic options, but because they lack emotional options as well. Old maidhood obliterates little womanhood and the fear of being an old maid is a motivating force in becoming a little woman” (377). I conclude that these strong women chose their life outcomes due to their own maturation. Maturation is realizing things we wanted before aren’t always what we will want in the end, a trait Meg exhibits when she comes to realization about loving Mr. Brooke. Meg’s dream was to be rich so that she would not have to work, with “a lovely house, full of all sorts of luxurious things; nice food, pretty clothes, handsome furniture, pleasant people, and heaps on money”(140).
