The movie and the book were both about women being saved from a place they felt undesirable. One fell in love after prostitution while the other never felt love. Now, with that in mind, The Postman Always Rings Twice is more realistic because Cora’s life explains the outcome of a prostitute that readers can relate to unlike Vivian from the movie Pretty Woman whose life is not a realistic outcome that readers can relate to. First, Cora, the femme fatale, and Vivian, the fallen Woman, lived unscrupulous lives. They both were conceived as prostitutes where they were un... ... middle of paper ... ... love for her husband and once she got rid of him she never ended up moving on from her past, she wanted to keep making additional changes to her life, like she was never satisfied.
Woman who did not marry could really only look forward to living with her relatives as a dependent so that marriage is pretty much the only way of ever getting out from under the parental control. “Women married because they had a lack of options; they were not formerly educated, and were only instructed in domestic duties. They needed someone to support them, and were encouraged to marry and have children” (Ziegenfuss). If a woman were to remain single she would be contempt and pitied by the community she lives in. The rules for women were so strict it’s like she had to be a slave to her husband.
An alcoholic mother abused by her younger lover, leaving New York to start a new life in this shithole; a good person but not a good mother; mother of nihilistic, drug-addicted and hardcore loving vegetarian anarchist, called Audrey Midnight as a joke, with a simple Farrell at the end – a surname after her so called mom, as she doesn’t want to remember her father’s face. Not like I didn’t know the truth. All I ever was – a side effect of her good paid job. Ellen used to be a prostitute – the known as Nina.

The fact that her drinking and her attempt at suicide are spread throughout the whole town places a cloud of remorse and shame over her. She paid a great deal for her mistakes and learned from them. I think her mom could be considered a static-flat character. Here her daughter is trying to grow up and get a boyfriend, going to high school, and babysitting on the side and her mother still does not want to see her daughter as “gentleman material.” She has this fixed idea that her daughter will marry some person who cant make a living. By the end of the story, the narrator gets over him and goes on with her life, which I’m sure her mother is appalled.
A girl!” 46 Wang Lung wasn’t any exception to the rule with girl children. He just wanted to have male children because girls just caused a whole lot of trouble in his eyes. 5 “I would sell this girl for you-to take you back to the land.’” 83 O’lan was willing to sell her daughter so that her family could go back to their home and their land. Wang Lung did not think that it was right to do so. O’lan thought that it was ok because she was sold into slavery when her parents needed money 6 “‘My mother did not bind them, since I was sold so young.
An example of this is Sally, who is a young girl from Mango Street who was being abused by her father and in order to escape this tragedy she went ahead and got married, and she hadn't even got to the eighth grade yet. “She says she is in love, but I think she did it to escape” (Linoleum Roses ¶1), was what Esperanza thought of Sally’s sudden venture into the world of adulthood at such a young age. In T.H.O.M.S marriage is a gilded concept, because the women are blinded by the pretty house and the new title and the freedom, however, when they've actually experienced it, they come to a realization that they are enslaved with no getaway. For example, Rafaela Who Drinks Coconut & Papaya Juice on Tuesdays, who “gets locked indoors because her husband is afraid Rafaela will run away since she is too beautiful to look at” (Rafaela Who Drinks Coc... ... middle of paper ... ...” (Marin ¶5). These women are sitting by their windows waiting on someone to come and rescue them, but this might never happen, because they have given in to this lifestyle of hurt, physical and emotional pain, and imprisonment.
However this did not happen this way because Beloved came back to haunt the family which resulted in her two boys leaving because they could not stand the pressure of living in a haunted house. So, again motherhood was inhibited because with out any children there is no mother hood and this is all because of slavery. Although Sethe prevented her children from being put back into the evil forces of slavery, there is a greater question of importance. Can Sethe be thought of as a heroine for releasing them from slavery or is it murder? These questions must also be related back to the real-life character Margaret Garner.
When she threatened to no longer have free will due to blackmail from the Judge, Hedda felt that is was more important to remain free and under the influence of no one than continue her life. Another controversial topic from the play is whether she was pregnant. Many women did not like Hedda to begin with because of how manipulative and deceiving she was; she was a femme fatale from 1890. When the play hinted that she might be pregnant, the ending of Hedda killing herself, and ultimately her baby, did not sit well with women. The fact that she could have been pregnant and never gave that baby a chance to live made her decision to kill herself even more selfish that it already was.
This woman is very selfish and does not agree with the plans that her son has made for their relaxing getaway. When her grandson tells her that she should say home if she does not want to go to Florida, the witty granddaughter named June Star replies, " `She wouldn't stay home to be queen for a day' " (385). This shows that the grandmother always has to put her two cents into everything. In addition to the grandmother's idea of running into the Misfit, who has escaped from the penitentiary she states, " `I wouldn't take my children in any direction with a criminal like that aloose in it. ... ... middle of paper ... ..., is asked to take the mother and June Star to the woods.
He claims that, ". . .through no fault of mine but through changes in the office [I lost my place], and then I did touch it [alcohol]!" He attempted to educate his daughter, but what little knowledge she has amounts to nothing when she cannot even collect money from Ivan Ivanitch Klopstock, a man she sewed six shirts for.
