    Please, could you write down different interpretations of these quotes?:
    "You have no power to make me change my mind"
    "As if a girl of that sort would ever refuse money"
    "I blame the young man who was the father of the child"
    "naturally, that was one of the things that prejudiced me against her case"
    "I used my influence to have it refused"
    "Find this young man and then make sure he is compelled to confess in public his responsibility."
    Thank you!!

    Euphemistic language demonstrates that she feels ashamed when saying Eva- perhaps trying to hide her guilt.

    'i blame the young man...'
    She is oblivious that Eric is the father of the child; this demonstrates that the older generation were oblivious to the struggles of the poor and what what happening at the time- socialist movements.
