To give one example of manipulation, Flannery O'Connor, Georgia State author of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find", writes that "You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?"(421). The grandmother is trying to make the misfit vulnerable, even though he has already killed everyone but her. She's begging the misfit for her life. Every one of those people would still be alive if it was not for the grandmother. She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways.
Therefore, Mary was just someone whose circumstances in life made her something which she is not : an insane woman Conflicts : Human vs. Human → Mary faces a conflict against her husband Patrick. When he tells her that she is leaving her Mary feels a bit of an insane episode because of the shock and horror at the news as the relationship is going steadily. In the text it states “......and she sat through it all,watching him with puzzled horror.” This is the scene where Patrick tells Mary he will be going away.

This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
Mayella grew up with an abusive father, so she never learns how actions can have consequences. She doesn’t know how to see the harm in what she does, and in the book it said, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed,” (page 323). Mayella destroyed one of the only things she cared about, and that’s because she didn’t learn the value of the truth. Mayella Ewell’s life is made up of many lousy things which all come together and shape her as the erroneous girl that she is. She is uneducated, has no values, and because of this, doesn’t deserve to be treated with equality.
First she tries to persuade her more reserved sister Ismene to help her. Once Antigone starts to realize her argument isn 't working she asks, “A true sister or a traitor to family?” (Sophocles et al. 190). Antigone uses a pathos or an emotional appeal here to try and convince Ismine. The appeal will help convince Ismene because no one wants to be called a traitor because it has a negative connotation.
She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
This story is about a grandmother who does all the wrong things and ends up getting herself and her family killed. In A Good Man is Hard to Find, we go through this adventure with a family that never truly makes their destination. The lies begin to build and the loose term of a good man gets thrown around one too many times. Does dressing like a lady and acting proper like a lady truly save your life? The grandmother’s moral code and values are skewed and largely self-concerning.
As for Antigone she became anger with her sister, Ismene, when she refused to help her bury their brother. Over all they are prideful individuals who withhold their stubbornness. For example when Oedipus, was not willing to yield to Liaus where the three rode 's meet and instead he decided to kill him for it and Antigone although it was the law that forbade her from burring her brother she decided to disobey and follow what was right to her. The also performed over the top self-harm; if they were not so dramatic they could of prevent their own deaths and the others around
The grandmother in “A Good Man is Hard to Find”, which name remains unknown throughout the story, is portrayed as a manipulator and exceedingly puts her family in a life or death situation.

All this time, she thought she can convince the misfit to save her family, but instead of make it worse than already is when she say “you’re the misfit.” Lastly, Grandmother, she have a good heart and wonderful person, but she is easily to deceive by peoples. She did not see clearly and she had a poor judgment about who to trust. Even though she know it’s wrong, but being selfish to do it anyway and her belief without true understands of perception that she is blind by faith. With her grace, she could’ve saved her family if she keep it to herself quietly without say that she recognized the “Misfit.” With her grace, now she think of her family before she die and realized how selfishly and manipulated person she been. I believed the story will lead to a good ending.
Not even for her ill husband would she turn off let alone turn down a program she was not even actively watching. Place higher value over an inattimate than one 's own spouse is clearly inhumane and lacks compassion. Mildred even called the actors on her program her family demonstrating just how much the characters on a show meant to her. The distraction of her so called family eventually lead to her death because “the family pratted and chatted and said her name and smiled at her and said nothing of the bomb” (Bradbury, 152). Essentially Mildred used her “family” as a distractions from her problems.
