girls did or they will go against her. Mary is not only scared of the girls, but she is also scared of what the judges would do if they found out what she did. Mary has to hide the truth about what really happened with the girls in order to not get killed or hurt.
“There are always stereotypes in high school. People are placed into groups. You’re a jock, you’re a cheerleader, you’re a freak, you’re into the drama department. I had a lot of trouble fitting into those groups when I was in high school because I wanted to be a part of all of them. One Tree Hill represents people who are multidimensional and who like more than one thing.” Hilarie Burton, who plays Peyton Sawyer, says it perfectly herself. One Tree Hill shows diversity among all. The use of every “stereotype” is used in this series to allow every viewer feel as though they have a place, making the show significant for young adult viewers especially. The main characters in the show are all friends, yet they all have different interests. Despite the drama, relatable for any high school viewer. While other shows place teens into certain stereotypical groups, One Tree Hill does just the opposite by allowing everyone to be themselves. Dissimilar from most shows on television and stereotypes of high school, One Tree Hill does a substantial work of portraying the diversity of all people by bringing all together.
Dahl’s use of dramatic irony during the story helps displays the actions of Mary Maloney and other characters. Mary Maloney swings the leg of the lamb to the back of the head of her husband. Dahl says, “ she swung the big frozen leg of lamb high in the air and brought it down as hard as she could on the back of his head” (Dahl 320). As a result, this quote is effective because the lamb was used as a weapon, instead of food; which shows that Mary could use anything to harm someone without her trying or when it was her attempt to hurt that someone. The story writes, “Probably right under our very noses. What you think, Jack”. In the same way as the first quote, this sets back to Mary because she sabotages the police to eat the lamb. With the police eating the lamb she is getting rid of the evidence so she does not get caught. From the use of dramatic irony in the story, Dahl's builds Mary as a character; he also uses different irony to create her.
There’s plenty of meat and stuff in the freezer, and you can have it right here and not even have to move out of the chair’’’ (2). Mary only ever want to please Patrick. She made sure everything was perfect for him and to never do anything wrong. She could not think of anything she had done to deserve such news. She immediately rejected the news and decided to pretend as if it never happened. Patrick was behaving so cruel to her while she was being nothing but nice to him. She even continued to make him dinner and he yelled at her saying not to because he is going out. This angered Mary resulting her to hit him with the leg of lamb and kill him. This shows that Mary is a sympathetic character because she was always compliant to Patrick. He had no right to disrespect her as he did.
Author also surprises readers, when he introduces conflict between a couple that used to love each other deeply. Diverting the story from love to betrayal, author develops an irony. In the story, reader sees two examples of betrayal. Ms. Maloney, while talking with her tired husband, finds out her husband no longer want to keep their marriage. Without giving any kind of reason, Patrick betrays her wife with a decision of breaking marriage. Mary shocks, when her husband, boldly, says, “ This is going to be bit shock of you”(P. Maloney) Author creates a total opposite picture of Patrick by describing him as a husband who used to give her wife surprises; he is now giving her shock in the middle of her pregnancy. Mary, who was previously shown as “anxiety less”(Dahl), with “a slow smiling air”(Dahl) and “curiously tranquil”(Dahl), had began to get upset and now inculcate her eye with a “bewildered look.” After betrayed by her husband, she, without any argue, she goes to the basement to look for frozen food. She decides to have leg of a lamb as a last dinner with her husband, but she smashes the frozen leg in to Patrick’s head with killing him. Mary betrays her husband by killing him and takes revenge of her betrayal. Later, Author confirms her as a murdered with the statement of “I’ve killed him”(Mary) from her own lips. Dahl, in the story,

Tony taught the other Wes violent defense in
Mary is very manipulative in that she is able to create the character of the poor, pregnant wife, whose husband has just been murdered. She is able to convince the police to take pity on her, to mix her a drink and then to even eat the evidence, the leg of lamb that she has left in the oven. "Why don’t you eat up that lamb that is in the oven" (Dahl, p. 17). Mary realizes that if the police find the evidence she will go to jail. Her quick thinking and manipulative character results in the police officers eathign the evidence and therefore she cannot be charged of this crime. These actions show the complex character that Mary Maloney truly is.
Mary Warren is guilty of causing hysteria in the story by fabricating and planting evidence. An example of Mary being guilty of fabricating and planting evidence is when Proctor questions her about how the poppet got into his house, Mary says “,glancing about the avid faces: Why-I made it in the court-sir and-give it to Goody Proctor.” (Miller 75) This shows that Mary is guilty of fabricating and planting evidence because she’s “glancing” at the “avid faces” before answering Proctor about the poppet with the needle in it. This shows that she knows that she is guilty of this charge. She knew that putting a needle in the poppet means that someone will get and she wanted to give it to Goody Proctor so that she’ll get framed. Another example of

As the years have passed, Janie has become totally submissive to Joe, to avoid both his physical and verbal abuse.
To start off, it can be clearly seen from the short story that Mary Maloney is guilty. She makes a conscious effort to make sure she reacts as if she has not committed this crime in the text “Lamb to Slaughter” she says, “If she finds anything unusual or terrible when she got home, then it would be a shock and she would have to react with grief and horror.”(Dahl 383) By her stating this it shows that she knows she is guilty and that she killed her husband. The main reason I chose this quote was that it shows that she knows what she is talking about and that she has to act like this otherwise she will be caught and
This is where the reader knows more then the characters, having seen the murder from Mary’s point of view and now watching the police officers discuss the crime. Also ironic, is that the police officers are doing Mary a huge favour by eating the evidence, making her practically undiscoverable. What is also special about the story, is that in the very beginning, Mary Maloney is described as a weak woman, only devoted to her husband and submissively in love with him. The reader is completely shocked when she murders her husband.
We all know what it's like to not care.” (Stanton 2:27). And by having you care, you are more devoted to the story. Miss Temptation follows the rule in two suggincatant ways. First, the story has you feel sympathetic towards Susanna after Fuller essentially slut shames her. After Fuller is done humiliating Susanna in front of everyone in the store, you additionally feel embarrassed for Susanna. Then, you get exposed to Fuller’s life once he goes home to his mom and exposes that he doesn’t have anyone in his life. Once that is presented, you can see the connection mentioned earlier in the story, which makes you feel sympathetic that he struggles with himself. But you also pity him, seeing that he had to stoop so low to insult a woman because he was lonely and was caught staring at her.
