Washington Square :: Essays Papers

Washington SquareIm depressed. Well, how could I not be? I just finished reading Washington Square. Im happy its over, but Im not happy I finished it. No, that doesnt make sense does it? Lets just say, I had a feeling how it was going to end up I just hoped that I would be wrong. Unfortunately the one time I didnt want to be right I was. Isnt that the way it always works? I guess so. Catherine, dear plain old, Catherine. Poor girl, father thinks shes plain, she thinks shes plain, her aunty thinks shes plain, even the humankind who she thinks loves her thinks shes plain. Although James erases this thought in the beginning of the book I still believe it, plain equals ugly. I feel so bad for her but I guess you had to have what happened to her happen, or else we wouldnt have such a depressing story. I spot you though, Im glad my daddy isnt rich or I would swear off guys as well. I felt so solemn when I knew before her what Morris was like.Which brings me to Morris Towns end. Hes a rat, I smelt a rat from the beginning but I figured it was just because for me guys for the closely(prenominal) 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 theory that women are gold diggers.James makes the reader dislike Catherines father. He makes him seem like an insensitive uncaring prick, but I really dont think he is. Yes I know parents are supposed to think that their child is the most beautiful thing in the world but hey, that theorys over rated. Its not that he didnt love his missy he just knew the truth. He was realistic about the entire idea of this strikingly handsome man falling head over heals in love with his daughter who isnt the greatest looking chick in the world. Something doesnt quite fit.
