The punishment was excessive since it was a lifelong severe punishment and it was used incorrectly because it did more than just show adultery is not acceptable. Especially in our society today the punishment most definitely was not fair. It violated her rights as an individual and forced other’s views upon her. This demonstrates the destructive effect shame can have on human lives. A real life example of shame being used incorrectly and excessively is shown in David Perry’s article, Jeb’s Medieval Politics of Shame: Upholding a Long Tradition of Keeping Women and Girls in Line, 13-year-old Izabel Laxamana was a victim of shame.
How can it be believed when Grace changes her story to fit her needs? They cannot, and therefore she is guilty. Grace Marks is a murderess, not a victim. The events that unfolded clearly she her guilt, and all the evidence points against her. It is hard to think anyone else besides McDermott and Grace performed the sinful murders, especially considering that both of their motives were based on love.
One type of abuse was the abuse directed to Jane by the Reed family. Jane’s’ aunt makes her life a misery. Jane is starved of love and affection. Mrs Reed finds fault with Jane because she wasn’t a content child. Jane says, “ She really must exclude me from privileges intended only for contented, happy little children.” Mrs Reed gives an unbelievable amount of cruel treatment to Jane; for example, Mrs Reed has a new set of rules exclusively for Jane.
One might assume with that type of environment, and the obvious neglect of advantageous relationships, I too would find it hard to sustain a healthy relationship with the opposite sex. That assumption would be correct. It was not until my step-mother came into the picture, that I understood what a normal, healthy, loving relationship looked like. However, the damage was done, the trust was gone and my heart had irrevocable damage. The lasting effects of an odious divorce on a child are rather uncanny if you ask me.
As she does not live with her mother she feels the need to rebel so that The Social Services will send her to her mother. During the story, certain events affect... ... middle of paper ... ...ings or people a chance. Gilly didn't give William Ernest or Maime Trotter a chance, she immediately thought they weren't up to her standards, but after a while she realised they were just like her. My views of the characters did change during the story. At the start, I really did not like Gilly; I thought she was really mean and a horrible person.
The exclamatory syntax of “what a good joke it will be!” indicates Lydia’s apathetic views on her family’s reputation. Her joking manner emphasizes her immaturity which prevents her from facing the consequences of her elopement. By allowing her family to fret about her lost dignity, Lydia demonstrates her lack of responsibility as a daughter and her disregard for feelings other than her own. Compared to her adolescent sister, Elizabeth regrets her prejudices towards the formidable Mr. Darcy. Once Mr. Darcy confesses his misjudgements of Jane and the truth in firing Mr. Wickham, Elizabeth “[grows] absolutely ashamed of herselfㅡOf neither Darcy nor Wickham could she think, without feeling that she had been blind, partial, prejudiced, absurd” (382).
In respect to the rights ethical framework, “people are not objects to be manipulated; it is a violation of human dignity to use people in ways they do not freely choose” (Andre 2014). It treats the victim as a “thing”, not as a person with all the value that we associate with an individual. The tactics used are inhuman and should not be subjected on anyone. The physical and psychological damage it causes is often permanent. Even if it were effective, it would still be wrong.
One could interpret the use of force positively or not but it is the grasp of the story. Saving the young girl through inappropriate manners saves a life although it destroys a reputable career. The man reveals difficulties separating two different tasks. The character of the young girl shows conflict between her personality and role as a patient. She is the reason for the instability and turmoil in the story since she is not willing to cooperate.
Satire invites critical self introspection from us in a way that no other media can. It also acts as an unbiased mirror that reflects the mirror image of the flaws of our society. This beautiful process, when unhindered and uncensored, is the epitome of western freedom of speech, which is the single most significant right that deserves to be cherished and defended. According to McClennen however, all mirror images of satire might not be beneficial. She believes that shows such as South Park and The Simpsons, which are not afraid to attack anything, do not lead to any kind of positive political discourse.
For many characters it is challenging to see through Yanna’s false appearance, but that was not the case for Sol. Sol “saw, a broken life, a frightened woman, a marriage that would bind him-however briefly-to grief” and therefore, regrets, agreeing to marry Yanna (Richler 7). Sol’s consent for marriage to Yanna causes him greater regret as his brother’s and niece’s lives are ruined as a result of this arrangement. Yanna pretends to be a loving mother and wife but truly she is not. Years later, when Ruth finally meets her mother Yanna, she finds out that her mother is also apologetic for the way her false appearance affected her first family.
