Her role as the disciplinarian shows that unlike most family archetypes she plays the more fatherly role. Joe, on the other hand, is often more gentle and treats Pip in motherly fashion. When Mrs. Joe comes home enraged because Pip has been gone from home, due to his run-in with the convict, Joe tells Pip that she is mad and has her cane, The Tickler, in an attempt to protect him from Mrs. Joe. Dickens states Pip’s view on Joe, “I always treated him as a larger species of child, and as no more than my equal” (7). Pip and Joe have a mother equal and caring relationship, like a mother and a child.

When ever she messed up she told the kids they “should forgive her the same way [they] always forgave Dad for is drink”(174).

From the beginning of the book, it is shown that Huck is forced to conform to what others think is best for him. Huckleberry was taken in by Widow Douglas because his dad wasn’t a part of his life anymore and he needed a parent figure. “The Widow Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would civilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn’t stand it any longer I lit out” (11). By trying to civilize Huckleberry, Widow Douglas was imposing what she assumed was best for him and wasn’t listening to what he thought or wanted.

He doesn’t quite like the story that the Wife of Bath tells about women who desire sovereignty over their husbands and his story responds to hers with an opposing view of a woman who is completely submissive and loyal to her husband. The Clerk shows his strong moral values through his speech. “Filled with moral virtue was his speech; / and gladly would he learn and gladly teach”(309). In his tale, the clerk reflects these virtues through Griselda. Griselda, just like the Clerk, wasn’t wealthy and she grew up working hard and she was taught well.
