Joe quickly spoke up before Jane could speak by saying, “Thank yuh fuh yo’ compliments, but mah wife don’t know nothin’ ‘bout no speech-makin’. Ah never married her for nothin’ lak dat. She’s uh woman and her place is in de home” (Hurston 43). Janie’s transformation was interrupted with being married to Joe, as she lost the voice that she had gained at the end of her marriage to Logan (Neale Hurston 's Their Eyes Were Watching God: Janie Crawford Character Analysis). While Janie still has her will power inside, Joe continued to manipulate Janie (Neale Hurston 's Their Eyes Were Watching God: Janie Crawford Character Analysis).
When citizens complained about the unpleasant smell emanating from her house, they slithered in the night to eradicate it, but did not speak to her in person. They only chose to take action because it was affecting them, not because they were concerned for her. It is evident they all saw that she was growing old, “When we next saw Miss Emily, she had grown fat and her hair was turning grey” (Faulkner, 389) however they did not attempt to help her by offering to assist her. Her servant Tobe was the only person who saw Emily for all those years she had isolated herself in her home. Had Emily’s father not been so overprotective of Emily and allowed her to choose a man for herself, she would not have felt so secluded and abandoned from society.
When Hester mounted the scaffold she refused to speak to the ministry, and she refused to tell them who the father of the baby was. By not telling the ministry who the father was Hester was being defiant and took the burden of the punishment on herself, this is another reason why the community despised Hester when she was considered an adulteress. Her strong will and silence lead the community to hate Hester, because she would not bend to the community and show weakness. The change that Hester experiences occurs through the aid of her daughter Pearl, her strong belief in transcendentalism, and her repentance of her sin through aiding the community. “…that this brook is the boundary between two worlds”(119).
Women, whom for years were starved for control and influence in their world, suddenly could exercise power over their husbands and other men. An example of these revolutionary women can be seen in Chaucer's Alison, the Wife of Bath. The Wife of Bath, a character in The Canterbury Tales, is a lusty woman who desires nothing more than sovereignty over her husbands, and she says all women desire the same thing. In the beginning of the Middle Ages, women were labeled as a threat. Society considered all women "depraved and treacherous daughters of Eve" (Brault 41).
Their opinions are not taken into consideration by their husbands. The women can cause a scene or whatever they want, and their request would still not even be thought about. Some may argue that the women were rather looking for topics to talk about, but that would be incorrect. That is because the wives are upset with their husbands for not giving them what they want. After Tom reveals to Daisy the other side of Gatsby, she begins to fear him.
She also points out how the police were very unhelpful and uncompassionate to her. The officer did not take into account that she was stunned and confused as well as physically injured from the incident. He asked her questions in an angry tone of voice and even threatened to arrest her for disorderly conduct. After the incident her life was not the same. Her jaw became dislocated, she tried to press charges but they were reduced because she did not press them on the scene, and she could not even sit through a movie with her friend.
That was really the only time Janie really said something that was disrespectful and out of the way. Watching the movie everyone should see a major change in Janie’s whole character Oprah made Janie a more outspoken, uncouth, and a gallant person who had a different personality. Janie in the book would have never been so rude to Pheoby like she acted towards her in the movie becau... ... middle of paper ... ...ld have incorporated the horizon somehow in the movie taking it out completely does not make the movie as complete. Janie and her second husband Joe Starks did not always see eye to eye some things he did for her were really sweet and compassionate. Joe knew exactly what to say to get Janie with him “De day you puts yo’ hand in mine, Ah wouldn’t let de sun go down on us single.
which is the ultimate burn to Hamlet, and Ophelia does not bother to inform Hamlet of her father’s commands, she simply leaves. All the important women in Hamlet’s life have betrayed him one way or another which gives him justification for his bitter and hostile view of women. There has been controversy over the fact that Ophelia did not have the choice whether to listen to her father or not. Some critics may argue that Ophelia is forced to reject Hamlet’s love because of her father’s orders. Shortly after Laertes finishes telling Ophelia that she should not believe what Hamlet says or does, Polonius enters the room to tell her what she needs to do, he commands, “Have you so slander any moments leisure,/ As to give words or talk with the lord Hamlet./ Look to’t, I charge you: come your ways” to which Ophelia reluctantly replies, “I shall obey my lord” (1.3.133-136).
She distastefully tells him, “ ‘I'faith, sir, you shall never need to fear. Iwis it is not halfway to her heart. But if it were, doubt not her care should be to comb your noddle with a three-legged stool and paint your face and use you like a fool’ ” (1.1.62-66). In addition to her wild behavior, she also stubbornly refuses to obey her father’s orders to stay with the suitors and leaves on her own accord. “ ‘Why, and I trust I may go too, may I not?
Catherine was also “forbidden to write to anyone without going through the College of Foreign Affairs. '; (Troyat 59). The empress continued to make life hard for Catherine by not even letting Catherine hold her child after birth or allow her to see him. Catherine said, “ my sprit was too proud, and the very idea of being unfortunate was unbearable to me. '; ( Troyat 90).
