Since in the story she clearly says that she disagrees with her husband’s ideas and her brother’s ideas, she has to keep everything to herself. Jane’s husband would never let her go out so she created a story with the character she sees in the ripped wallpaper. Women are so sensitive, and use that characteristic to get her in favor. Women today are as smart and sensitive as they were at that time, but now she has more confidence and disagrees with what is not right. In opposite, in the story she agrees that her husband is right when her husband took her in his arms and called her a blessed little goose (Gilman
Holden also is preoccupied with children because he himself has not matured, and is in the insecure stage of finding oneself. Holden can relate to children because they have a positive outlook on life, because they don't know what to expect. They haven't been molded or influenced by any evils of the real world. They aren't guarded or fake. And with Holden calling every adult or peer a "phony" the audience sees both Holden's hate for the world he has to grow into and his love for the world and bond with children-with purity.
Nevertheless Holden finds much joy seeing her in these types of environments. Because Holden has been exposed to this phony world, and cannot gain his innocence back, he feels that bringing Phoebe to a carousel ride will help preserve her childhood. Holden thinks it is important for Phoebe to keep her innocence and stay a child as long as possible because in Holden’s personal experience, he had never really showed a liking into anyone except for a small handful. He saw bad in almost everyone and viewed the world as corrupt, which is why Holden Caulfield has a fear of g... ... middle of paper ... ... museum because although life went on and things happened in the real world, he could always return to the museum and expect the same that he did the last time he was there. Yet although Holden loves this about the museums he hates the fact that with every time he comes back, he is older and more mature.
Holden’s only real love in the family is for his sister Phoebe. The bond and respect between brother and sister can not be broken no matter how far the distance between them. When Holden arrives back in New York, he immediately wanted to call someone; his sister Phoebe. "She wouldn’t’ve cared if I’d woke her up…" (Salinger 59) Many people her age would not appreciate being woken up that late at night, especially by their brother, but there is a mutual respect between Phoebe and Holden that would allow for this event to occur. Through out the whole novel, this relationship continues because she is his little sister and he would never hurt her.
She was my least favorite of all my coworkers, and if she liked me at all she never made it conspicuous. She relentlessly jaundiced me for coming to UMC and taking her best friends job. She constantly looked at my work tentatively, for any and every little mistake I might made, hoping one day there?d be one, big enough to get me fired. The rest of the group pushed past me, through the entrance, into my living room. I had tried my best to ?festivate?
Early in the story we see how vital appearance is to Mrs. Whipple. She remarks to her husband that no one should ever hear them complain (324). Her real effort to maintain a front for her neighbors, however, surrounds her "simple-minded son," who never has any identity other than "He." It seems that Mrs. Whipple fears that if those around her know He is retarded, this would reflect badly on her character. Many times, unfortunately, parents of children with any birth defect worry they have some blame to account for.
One thing that struck her as being absurd, and which she sees as my culture’s weakness, is our ability to stay in a loveless marriage, even when it hurts. She never understands the logic behind it, even when I told her our great grandmothers had to stay married once they have children for their husbands despite the sufferings. They will not want their children to suffer once they divorce their husband and he remarries. All the same, she still thinks of it as being barbaric. Grace never sees my culture getting in the way of working with me, because she knows I follow all the rules, as was laid down by our employer.
The unwavering love that her family and friends gave her soured her disposition. While on a business trip, her father told his children that they could choose any gift that they wanted. Catherine, being a good rider, “chose a whip. ';(40) When she learned that Heathcliff was the reason why she did not get her present, she responded “by grinning and spitting at the stupid little thing. ';(41) Since she was used to getting everything that she wanted, she became haughty and had no respect for other people’s feelings.
Jane continued through life when all seemed lost and was rewarded with a husband that could see again and a child. Jane Eyre was stopped at every turn in her life but persevered through everything, and because of her will to continue forward she was rewarded at the very end. Jane did not need any Fairies or Godmothers to help her, because she was an independent woman that ever gave up. The children in the poem faced despair and forfeited because they thought that getting back up would be futile. All Jane ever wanted in her life was to be important in someone’s eyes, and until that day finally came she never stopped trying.
One of the qualities that jump out first is that all three mothers are incredibly proud of their sons, even if they have no reason to be. Julian’s mother loves to tell people how her “son finished college last year. He wants to write but he’s selling typewriters until he gets started” (10). She does not care that he has not truly written anything, but that he has graduated college and that he is trying to get his life on track. She is constantly reminding him that “Rome wasn’t built in a day” (11), and she truly believes this about her son; that eventually he will go places with his writing.
