I made the mistake of reading the first Little House on the Prairie book once again after finishing the series. It was just so hard to believe that the distinguished Laura Ingalls Wilder was once a naughty five-year-old, always secondary to her flawless older sister. This transformation made me realize that in reality or literature, characters change as they grow up.

Many literary works portray growth or refinement of certain characters; physically, mentally, or emotionally.
The nature of these boarding schools was to assimilate young Native Americans into American culture, doing away with any “savageness” that they’re supposedly predisposed to have. As Bonnin remembers the first night of her stay at the school, she says “I was tucked into bed with one of the tall girls, because she talked to me in my mother tongue and seemed to soothe me” (Bonnin 325). Even at the beginning of such a traumatic journey, the author is signaling to the audience the conditioning that she was already under. Bonnin instinctively sought out something familiar, a girl who merely spoke in the same “tongue” as her. There are already so few things that she has in her immediate surroundings that help her identify who and what she is, that she must cling to the simple familiarities to bring any semblance of comfort.

Mama dreams of reconciling with Dee on a television program where she embraces her “with tears in her eyes” (494). Although Mama’s dislike of Dee grows throughout the story, she never tells lies about her. In fact, she tries to make both daughters happy in the end, giving the home-made blankets to Maggie and telling Dee to “take one or two of the others” (499). In addition, the reader gains much insight into Mama’s character when she shares her feelings before snatching the blankets from Wangero: “When I looked at her like that something hit me in the top of my head and ran down to the soles of my feet. Just like when I’m in church and the spirit of God touches me and I get happy and shout” (499).
“A Wrinkle in Time” book states, “She wasn’t usually afraid of weather.—It’s not just the weather, she thought.—It’s the weather on top of everything else. On top of me.

She had given it to her in hopes that Didion would learn to keep herself entertained and maybe it would occupy her time and it would cut down on Didion whining so much.

Didion uses flashbacks like this one throughout her article to prove to the readers that keeping a notebook is not just a recollection of what happened during our day, but rather, anything that the writer wants to put
Here, Godwin writes, "the force of the two joyful notes slipped under her door that evening pressed her into the corner of the little room. She hardly had space to breathe. As soon as possible she drank the draft "(Meyer 43). This quote talks about what the psychological state of the woman might be like and how much she needs to escape from her every one. In reading, it can be also found that Bartleby 's life and that of the woman are very impersonal, but Bartleby 's is more since the woman, at least, the woman tries to communicate with her son and her husband in order to solve it is happening to her.
