Washington Square :: Essays Papers
Washington SquareIm depressed. Well, how could I not be? I just complete reading Washington Square. Im happy its everyplace, just now Im not happy I finished it. No, that doesnt make sense does it? Lets just say, I had a feeling how it was acquittance to end up I just hoped that I would be wrong. unfortunately the one time I didnt want to be adept I was. Isnt that the way it ever works? I supposal so. Catherine, dear plain old, Catherine. Poor girl, father think backs shes plain, she thinks shes plain, her aunty thinks shes plain, even the man who she thinks spangs her thinks shes plain. Although jam erases this thought in the beginning of the book I still believe it, plain equals woeful. I feel so bad for her scarce I view you had to have what happened to her happen, or else we wouldnt have such a depressing story. I tell you though, Im glad my daddy isnt abstruse or I would swear off guys as well. I felt so horrible when I knew before her what Morris w as like.Which brings me to Morris Townsend. Hes a rat, I smelt a rat from the beginning but I figured it was just because for me guys for the most part are always rats. But of course he was after her money, she was plain and her father was rich no her father wasnt rich. By god he was rich. So Catherines got a big dowry, lots of money, but shes plain. Oh, well the money will compensate. This shows you the kind of man he is. Well at least it erases the speculation that women are gold diggers.James makes the reader dislike Catherines father. He makes him seem like an unresponsive uncaring prick, but I really dont think he is. Yes I know parents are supposed to think that their barbarian is the most beautiful thing in the world but hey, that theorys over rated. Its not that he didnt love his daughter he just knew the truth. He was realistic about the ideal idea of this strikingly handsome man falling head over heals in love with his daughter who isnt the greatest looking maam in the world. Something doesnt quite fit.
