Williams’ definition of a crisis apparition, “appears to a witness at a time when the person whose apparition is seen experiencing a state of crisis” (Williams 2), provides context to the theory that The Governess saw Peter Quint because of high levels of anxiety that she didn’t know how to control. Williams quotes from The Gift, a book written by Dr. Sally Rhine Feather and Michael Schmicker, and tells the story of a woman had undergone the hardship of moving halfway across the country with her daughter and leaving her father behind when he was extremely ill. The Governess was experiencing a similar stress level as the woman in the article. The Governess had received “disturbing letters from home, where things were not going well” (James 33).

When she was 20, she decided to leave the house and run away from home to live with someone else. I felt a massive amount of cognitive dissonance because her behaviors were not associated with the Stephanie I grew up with in my childhood. I felt uncomfortable with the fact that she left the house for no apparent reason, and it felt unusual to me that she would go and do this. She never seemed like she was going to leave the house and disappear from my life for a month. She also never wanted to be away from my younger sister and me.
The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
In third grade, she begged her mother for dance classes and was running off the bus in hopes that she wasn’t going to get beat up on the way home. In 6th grade, Laverne Cox attempted suicide because of her fear that she was disappointing her religious, late grandmother by thinking of such a sin. As you read through my paper, you will get a feel of what it might have been for Laverne growing up as Rodrick Laverne Cox to how she feels now that she is comfortable in the body she feels she belongs in. I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I enjoyed writing
Her parents died by a large earthquake in the movie, but in the book they both died along with other people in their kingdom from cholera, and that is why Mary had to go stay with her uncle Mr. Craven. I don’t think the way her parents died really affected the story; it just changed the reason why she had to go live at Misselwaite Manor. When Mary was going to meet Mrs. Medlock at the train station,
