The whispering had reach Paul's ears and as he was in his rocking horse swing and fro disturb him very much.

As I read the story with out a doubt in mind the story clearly manifests a serious lack of love in the family.

D. H. Lawrence’s fable of materialism, affluence and a broken mother/son bond echoes greedy transgression. His writings are well-known for delving into human nature and he does an excellent job demonstrating the trait of materialism, morally questioning the value of love versus the hazard of greed. This upper-class family is shattered by avarice; their eventual downfall comes, despite the overwhelming effort of keeping up appearances. The mother’s misplaced affection for her children illustrates the negative results that wealth, destiny, and lack of love will produce -- the dehumanization of society as a whole. “They lived in a pleasant house, with a garden, and they had discreet servants, and felt themselves superior to anyone in the neighborhood.
This is an expression of her love for money, which is greater than her love for her children. The children can tell that Hester does not love them, since she lacks the will to show them their much needed attention. Although Hester tries to put on an act as if she does adore her children in front of company that she wishes to impress. The two girls and one son, Paul, realize her want for money by the house’s occasional moan saying, “There must be more money” (Lawrence 525). The phrase is emphasized throughout the story to show that the parents have the constant need and want for money to support the kids.
Paul asks his mother, “Is luck money, mother?” (Kennedy & Gioia pg. 174). Because his mother demonstrates that she is not happy without material things, her son believes that to make the house stop whispering he must provide her with the money to satisfy her materialistic values. Paul knew that when his mother looks at him she “the felt the center of her heart go hard” (Kennedy & Gioia pg. 174).
(407) Hester describes her husband as an "unlucky husband" (408). Through this expression, it is easy to see that Hester does not love her husband, and blames him for his incapability of making money. Lawrence uses this expression to demonstrate Hester's inability to love, and implies that her dissatisfaction with life is what turns her love to "dust" and causes the failure of her marriage. Through the descriptions of Hester's attitudes towards her husband and children, Lawrence paints a vivid imag... ... middle of paper ... ...n irony. Even though he rides the rocking horse, a young boy's toy, as Paul starts gambling, gradually he loses his innocence as a child.
She knows that her heart has a “hard little place that could not feel love...” (Lawrence, 750). In order to cover up this flaw she pretends as though she loves her children so the other parents within her social circle believe that she is a great mother. This artificial love manifests itself in the form of expensive gifts, servants, and a nurse (or nanny). However, in the privacy of their own home she is cold and distant from her children, and they know of her stone heart. Despite being briefly mentioned, the knowledge of t... ... middle of paper ... ...tunate and wealthy through some type of hardship or quest.
1a) Jane is an angry, insecure, confused teenage girl who resents her parents. She is a more reserved person and is trying to find her way through her early life. As most typical American middle class teenager, she values her appearance more than anything; a jealous individual, though she may be a reserved individual, her feelings of jealousy are made apparent throughout the movie and seem to be a root to her anger. Due to her insecurities she doesn’t consider herself attractive enough and is considering going through breast augmentation surgery. Jane seems to be seeking outside approval be it from anyone due to the parental neglect that she faces as well as the envy she feels towards her, “prettier” amateur model, best friend Angela.
By embracing money and refusing love, Mrs. Hammond denies her soul the greatest treasure on Earth. Lucy Hammond, "the very counterpart of her mother, both in person and mind" (6), also loves to emphasize the importance of being comforted by material pleasures and being socially accepted in the wealthy class. She reveals her shallowness when considering who to marry: her only concern is his financial stature. Walsingham attracts Lucy with his impeccable social graces and costumes and, most of all, his wealth. Likewise, Walsingham does not marry Lucy because he appreciates her intellect or creativity: his main concern is her... ... middle of paper ... ... is based on money.
Hamlets reply was one full of grief, anxiety and anger. He begins to tell his mother of what he knows and what he expects from her. Not to share her bed with Claudius as well as take part in any more corruption. Gertrude then begins to see that her son is not mad with sickness, but is more mad with anger over her stupidity. Hamlet has let his mother become his main role model for all women in the world and that is why he is so negative towards women.
One of the main symbols in Lawrence’s short story is Hester. She is the mother of Paul and both are main characters. Hester is a good representation of greed, selfishness and being materialistic. She values money more than her children “She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them” (Lawrence, 295).
