We can see this demonstrated when Steinbeck says “She went on with her story quickly before she could be interrupted.” This quote portrays her desire to finally let out her story and to be listened to. Furthermore, we can deduce, from the quote, that maybe Curley’s Wife could be quite impatient, evidence of this “she went on with her story quickly.” In addition, we can clearly see that Curley’s Wife is lonely due to the fact of her reputation, in the book she is known as “Curley’s Wife” which implies she is so disrespected and disregarded she doesn’t even deserve a name. This piles on to maybe she doesn’t have a name because she has never spoken to anymore meaning that no one would ever have had to call her by her real name. Secondly, Steinbeck informs us of an event in Curley’s Wife’s past which leads on to the events of the present. This is her dream of becoming a huge star in the movies.
Death Paragraph quotes: “Writhed” gives the reader the image that she is helplessly struggling like a small animal and compares her to the mouse and dog that Lennie has killed. “Curley came suddenly to life” are the words Steinbeck uses to depict when Curley realizes who has killed his wife. This makes us feel sorry for Curley’s Wife because it suggests that her husband is more excited that he will be able to take his revenge on Lennie than he is upset that his wife is dead. The fact that even her own husband does not show that he misses her to any significance also make us feel sympathetic towards Curely’s Wife because we realize that she will also not be missed by any of the other characters in the book. Never achieving her dreams paragraph quotes: Steinbeck inevitably brings out the reader’s sympathy towards Curley’s Wife when she dies in the book.

She also utilizes imagery to emphasize and exaggerate her pleas. The language Lady Anne uses is appropriate for this scene which is set during the funeral process of King Henry VI. The end-stopped lines slows down her speech and this emphasizes how in pain and agony she is over the death of the king. The quote where Lady Anne states “If ever he have wife, let her be made.
Raluca Gherzan 211571395 firstname.lastname@example.org Stephanie Hart EN 1001: Introduction to Literary Study November 17, 2011 Rebelling against Societal Restraints The two female protagonists in Scorched and Antigone are given the archetype of the madwoman—Nawal as a cause of her silence and Antigone because of her “crazy death wish” of wanting to bury her brother. The two women feel that they have been wronged and in the end, find an escape. In a patriarchal society where men rule over women, the only choice the two female protagonists see, which could potentially lead others to empathize with them, would be to rebel against societal norms and to disregard human laws. Their motives for rebellion are explored in their character portrayal, as well as through the themes of identity and fate versus free will. The first motive for the protagonists’ rebellion is expressed through the theme of identity.
Haley Muggy Basuli SURVEY WOMENS LIT ENGL315A SEC 001 3/14/13 Option #2 The Yellow Wallpaper and its’ Relation to Sandra Fluke From the very beginning of “The Yellow Wallpaper”, written by Charlotte Perkins Gillman, it is clear that the main character is being oppressed and demeaned by her husband John. “John laughs at me, of course, but one expects that in marriage,” she writes about her husbands’ reaction to her questions about their future summer home. The fact that she says that being mocked is expected in marriage is a sad thought, and makes me hope that we have come a long way when it comes to marital relationships since this story was written. This story is set in the 19th century, and was written to draw attention to the need for women’s physical and mental health to be taken more seriously. “Hysteria” was a common diagnosis seen in only women for hundreds of years in Western Europe.
