Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.

Although there is no clear statement that shows Louise to have an oppressive marriage, there are ambiguous statements about the marriage that show she feels caged. During the event of finding out about Brently’s death, Louise did not respond “as many women have heard the same, with a paralyzed inability to accept its significance. She wept at once, with sudden wild abandonment” (Chopin), due to Brently’s death she is finally able to let out emotions that she has held in for so many years of being a dutiful wife. Once Louise is left alone to grieve she reflects upon her feelings and her marriage. The narrator points out that Louise knows she will cry again for him when she sees his funeral, remembering his “kind, tender hands...the face that had never looked save with love upon her” (Chopin).
The biggest aspects of life a person is guaranteed to face are choices. In Kate Chopin’s story, “The Story of an Hour”, a woman receives mistaken news about the death of her husband. However, she becomes overexcited and dies due to a poor heart condition. In “Regret”, Chopin introduces an old woman who lived her life independently and alone. By the end of the story, she began to resent sacrificing major opportunities in life when she was younger.
The way Granny is used and abused throughout her long life has worn her down and brought her to a breaking point. As Granny takes her last breath she begs, "God, give a sign!" (294) and when she is given none she "...blows out the light" (294) ending her life, and thus giving up on God. Her final jilting coming from the same hand who gave her life, God himself. The irony being that God not giving her a sign, held a secret sign.
Many people identify closure as an end, a conclusion, or a resolution, when in fact it should be something that is understood, accepted, and lived with. In the chapter, “The Dew Breaker,” Anne, the wife of the dew breaker, still regrets the traumatic death of her brother at the hands of her own husband. She goes on to say, “There was no way to escape this dread anymore...this fright that the most important relationships of her life were always on the verge of being severed or lost, that the people closest to her were always disappearing... These spirits, they’d left her for good... leaving behind no corpse to bury, no trace of himself at all” (Danticat 242). This suggests that Anne may never be able to forgive her husband and obtain closure from her brother’s death.
When Soraya ran away with an Afghan man without her parents permission, her father hunted her down and dragged her back home. After being reunited with her mother it was the moment Soraya says, “I saw my mother had a stroke, the right side of her was paralyzed and… I felt so guilty. She didn’t deserve that” (173). Soraya reflects that every time she looks at her mother is what persuades her to become more docile, mannered and respectful. Despite trying to make up for her mistakes, people still spread rumors about her making her feel like she isn't good enough.
Lizzie Bordens case left the world shocked and confused. People didn't know what to believe since there was lack of forensic evidence making it harder for police to convict her of the murder. In court, A.V. Jennings (Lizzie Borden's Defense) argued, “there is not one particle of direct evidence in this case from beginning to end against Lizzie A. Borden. There is not a spot of blood, there is not a weapon they have connected with her in any way, shape or fashion.” Some people still believed she was guilty and never accepted her in the community.
December of 1918 was a brutal one for LaGrange County, Indiana. Snow and cold pushed people indoors, and the Spanish Flu spread in a pandemic wave across the undulated fields dotted with farmhouses. Nestled in a home along Route 2 in Shipshewana, the Yoder family experienced a birth and two deaths in a matter of two days. Mary Yoder, very ill with the flu, gave birth to her daughter Grace on December 27, 1918. The LaGrange County records list Grace as dying on December 27, but not as a stillbirth, which leads one to think the family might have spent a brief time with her.
Physically in Bondage, Free in Christ In times of contentment and peace, it is easy to say that one will always trust in the Lord no matter what may come. Despite this eager and somewhat overconfident approach to faith, many Christians often are found questioning the Lord when actual trial and tribulation come their way. In A Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson by Mary Rowlandson, she shows readers that even through all she faced during her eleven weeks of captivity, her faith remained unwavering. Mary Rowlandson is the colonial image bearer of what it means to trust in the undeserved mercy that God shows his children, as well as in his nature regardless of your circumstance.

Abraham Lincoln, infamously nicknamed “Honest Abe,” was an important influential person in history because of his impactful speeches, unique ideologies, and of course for being the 16th president of the United States. Lincoln’s legacy began when he was born on February 12, 1809 in Hardin County, Kentucky. He was named after his grandfather and had one older sister named Sarah and one younger brother named Thomas. Thomas died as a baby, and shortly after, Abraham’s mother died in 1818 (Lincoln was 9 years old). Growing up, Lincoln had no formal education but he taught himself through borrowing and studying books.
