The women withhold all the evidence they find, therefore getting back at them men for all the stereotypical and degrading comments they said. Thus allowing the attorney to attempt to find his own evidence and ending the play. Gaspell's play represents the misjudgment and stereotypes the women faced and how they dealt with those issues. The men's one-sided view of the women prevents them from finding the key evidence that they need. The male investigators need to find, as Mrs. Peters puts it, "'a motive; something to show anger, or--sudden feeling'" (357).
Tom always runs away from his troubles so that he will not be caught, and becomes restless so that he will not have to be confronted with his weaknesses. “Moreover he is a rude and violent person who sometimes acts boisterously and maliciously” (Tom). Tom speaks and acts very hypocritically. His harsh words towards Daisy about the affair made many people come to know him as degrading, so they avoided speaking to him if they could. Although he failed at accomplishing his American Dream, Tom bullies the people who he thinks keep him from getting closer to achieving his idea of a perfect
Because of this fight for attention between Basil Hallward and Lord Henry Wotton, Dorian Gray begins to become arrogant and careless in what he does. He has little awareness of people’s feelings and begins to use people in order to get what he wants. Although these are not the traits of monsters that haunt most people’s dreams, they are monstrous traits because of the destruction of the people around the character. Patrick Adcock in his critical evaluation of
I can’t eat! Anna retorted.” “Don’t be silly! These very hands are the ones that nursed you to a very pretty and admirable figure.” Everyone was disgusted with Anna’s sarcastic comments. Her father who rarely laid his hands on any of his child saw that this situation warrant him to punish Anna severely. He was totally moved around the bend with Anna’s insinuations and he beat her up endlessly until everyone pulled the father away because he seemed to be killing her.
The girl who was with him got into the papers, too, because her arm was broken-she was one of the chambermaids in the Santa Barbara Hotel (Fitzgerald ).” Tom is a brutal, uncaring man devoid of all sense of decency and responsibility. He has no real love for his wife in fact almost openly unfaithful (Gillespie and Naden). He feels that his money gives him the power to run around with other women, and Daisy seems to care more about his money than she does him, so he feels he has permission. Tom’s money also leads him to think he’s better than everyone else and is therefore uncaring about what happens to the little people like George & Myrtle Wilson, and is disdainful of those who try and earn... ... middle of paper ... ... Tom’s money also corrupts him because he feels superior to others and justified for his wrong acts due to this sense of superiority stemming from his inherited wealth. His ultimate act of corruption, his carelessness in destroying the lives of the Wilsons and Gatsby.
He is a very sly and cunning young man and a very good liar and knows that he has all the power but is not quite in control of everything. He constantly lies throughout the story; for example, 'You didn't really mean what you said to them'. 'Not a word of'. This is when he asked Milly to marry his last and lied about his meaning what he said. His confrontations with each woman results in putting him in a worse situation than what he was in before as he lies to them all the time.
She knows that her “husbands Social Security and a little two-bit pension” will not cover the fine (52-53). After Mrs. Reilly’s panic attack and fear of doing time, Ignatius becomes distracted by the “total perversion” that he witnesses on the television (53). Rather than strategizing on how to make up the funds to pay for the damage, Ignatius completely ignores her mother and attempts to tend h... ... middle of paper ... ...’s ego certainly makes him a character that only one can admire or ultimately despise, which appears to be the latter in most cases because of his rash comments towards people he does not like, not because of their appearance necessarily like Patrolman Mancuso, but rather for personality such as her own mother. This behavior reflected the ideals the United States practiced pre-Korean War. This behavior involved the mistreatment of African Americans, which Ignatius certainly mentions about the slow progress from the field to the factory; the global hegemony that the United States exerted during global conflicts; finally the issue with racism in the United States that retains its importance in global issues because of the social latter that Americans have created.
Until, financial catastrophe happened in the Sonnino’s family and how it ruined whole family due to his lack of consideration for others. Luca used to hate the fact about his father that why he was constantly after women, what has he done for his sons, and why he keeps on wasting money though the fact their family didn’t had any money. Bepy actually goes bankrupt when he cheats on his catholic partner of thirty-years Nanni. Luca insults his father by saying “My father shouts, taking refuge in the comforting shell of self-pity: don’t you understand, you dirty bastard, what kind of life we are living here? Every day a different creditors…….holding out colossal bills (39)”.
He even got bolder about it and soon went as often as he liked" (p. 18). I believe that separated parents can really affect so badly a family; and like in many cases, this happened in Essie Mae's. I think George Lee, who was her eight year old uncle, was one of the most negative persons during her childhood. This boy, who was supposed to take care of Essie Mae and the other kids, was a total bad model for her and that's also why she hated him. Many times this kid did hit them for any reason and he never cared about them.
Helen finally falls in love with Percy Armitage who asks for her hand in marriage but Dr Roylott "offers no position to the match." This shows his selfish personality, he only cares for himself and not his stepdaughter's happiness. He hangs about with criminal gypsies but he is in fact worse than the gypsies. "He has a baboon and cheetah which wonder freely over his grounds" This shows his weird, strange hard character. He is also quite a bully because Helen says, "for a long time we did all the work of the house" They had to do this because all the servants were afraid of being employed by him "No servants would stay with us".
