All or Nothing Lucinda Matlock and Richard Cory are round characters that display the life of a rich, educated man and a working class woman. Cory has everything that he could ever wish for, but Matlock lived an average life that was extremely rough with the deaths of her children. Both characters are intriguing because of the vivid description of the deaths the two suffered and the two opposite lives the two people lived.

Not only women here have the gender roles. Macduff's family is killed and it is looked down on when men cry, yet here it is more emotionally taken by the audience than when Lady Macbeth gender roles are flipped. Having Macduff be manly man yet cry at the death of his family makes him more of a ‘well rounded character’ and lady macbeth's character is more ‘damaged’. The end of Lady Macbeth's power left so broken he had little response to it. The doctors that found her assumes a feminine role saying, “I think, but dare not speak (5.1.69).” Lady Macbeth’s power, at that point, had become so strong that male characters were acting in ways that were expected of women.

One strong emotional reaction is when Aibileen always mentions something about her past like with her ex-husband, Clyde and her deceased son, Treelore.

It’s not fair that just because of your color that you have to be made fun of. My last strong reaction in the book in my opinion is when the maids get fired.
