As the days goes by his family became more frustratuate on him. Gregor’s sister, Grete, treats him with kindness and at the end, she also was the one who confront to Mr.Samsa and Mrs. Samsa that they need to get rid of the monster that is living them. “‘Father, Mother,’ said his sister, hitting the table with her hand as introduction, ‘we can’t carry on like this. Maybe
The way her cruel and sinister stepdad treats her and her family. One of the things he does is he verbally abuses Eleanor with hurtful words he writes on her diary or notebook everyday until one day he threatened her and went too far. It made her so frightened that she had to move to her uncle’s because she didn't know what to do. And because of that, she had to leave Park too. The thing is that her mom can't divorce or do anything to him because she doesn't know where she could get money and how she’s going to make a living by herself or even what Richie would do to her.
In addition to Gilberts struggles there are also some diversity issues with Arnie’s mother, because of weight gain she has been laughed at and pointed at by the people in her town, that when she passed her children does not want to humiliated again so they burn the house down. I chose to focus on the lack of knowledge and empathy the people in the town had regarding Arnie and his disability, with consideration of the time era in which the movie was filmed. The way the sheriff handled Arnie while taking him into custody and also the doctor’s thoughts on Arnie’s life span. The diversity issues were present well in the film, I watched the movie when it first came out and I can say now that I have expanded my knowledge I am able to see the issues presented in the
Throughout her life span irrational decisions strained her path to Hollywood fame. Curley’s wife was vulnerable due to the strict guidelines set in place by her mother. These guidelines caused Curley's wife to make the sporadic decision to marry him and escape her mother's discouragement, “I always thought my ol' lady stole it. Well, I wasn't gonna stay no place where I couldn't get nowhere or make something of myself, an' where they stole your letters, I ast her if she stole it, too, an' she says no. So I married Curley.”(Curley's wife 88).
This is mostly seen through the characters of Mildred and Montag, who struggle to keep an authentic relationship above technology. In ‘The Hearth and the Salamander’, Montag says “Nobody listens anymore to each other, I can’t talk to my wife; she listens to the walls.”. In this scene, Montag is beginning to realise the depressing reality his society lives in. There are no authentic human relationships, intelligence or free will, instead, technology controls the mass of the population. Bradbury uses truncated sentences, allusions to popular culture and first-person narrative to convey this point.
A central theme that I found in the short story, “The Veldt” is that overdependence on technology negatively impacts one’s sense of purpose and motivation in life. Ray Bradbury makes this point through examples in the way Lydia, George, Wendy, and Peter feel about the house, the types of conversations they have, and the arguments they have with each other. A way the author conveys this theme is when Lydia, the mother, is feeling anxious and has a conversation with her husband, George, about how she doesn’t have enough to do around the house. In a traditional 1950’s home, the wife or mother would be the one who did all the cooking, cleaning, and comforting in the household. Lydia hasn’t been able to do any of her normal duties, which makes her feel like she doesn’t belong.
However, he does not want to marry her: “[…] [I]sn’t it a mad thing I’m saying again that you’d be asking marriage of me” (TW I. 4). Likewise, Michael’s mother does not approve of such a marriage and she says: “[…] I never knew till this day it was a black born fool I had for a son” (TW II. 34). Despite the scorn of his mother, Michael eventually decides to marry Sarah because, like a bourgeois, he has patriarchal economic reasons for tying up his woman as wife as she earns a great deal of money.

Henrik Ibsen’s “A Doll’s House” is a critique of an unequal society with its structured hierarchy of male dominance. The play seems to be a serious social commentary of the time period when it was written. The characters in the play bring four issues of power and control, ignorance and innocence, rebirth and social status. Ibsen created Nora’s character in doll’s house to represent that women of that time period was unaware of their situation in society but in play women were also taught to overcome their unawareness. As their was nurse to take care of their children so Nora was not taking care of her children so whenever she like to meet her children she meets them so Nora realizes at the end of the play that she is totally controlled by
Neglect was immensely reflected in the story, “The Metamorphosis.” When Gregor had first transformed into an insect, his mom couldn’t stand the thought of even looking at him, and when she did, she’d burst into tears as if she was disappointed. Furthermore, the father had spite for his son and after he transformed; their relationship worsened and took a turn for the worst. Gregor’s parents were never there or even cared for him, and that’s one of the ways that neglect comes through in the story. As for Gregor’s sister; she knew she would have to take on the roll as a caregiver after their parents no longer wanted anything to do with Gregor. As time passed, his sister

Witnessing my father chasing down my mother because of a pointless argument of my parents not caring about my siblings and I where abouts would be devastating to say the least. In The Glass Castle Jeannette and her siblings chose to appreciate the small things as they got older because they were not given materialistic items or a hot meal when they could afford it. Their mother made poor financial decisions and hardly ever put the kids first. For example, the mom chose to rent a piano over buying Brian a pair of male jeans. He had to suffer wearing girl clothes that did not even fit.
