A gender bias is not implied clearly in the text although there are clear suggestions towards certain perceptions of the sexes. There seems to be some qualities that guide the development of characters based on whether they are female or male. The gender roles and identities reflect an image that is very typical in the Western world in the early 20th century which makes the text well suited for its time. The context of time explains the perception of Loretta as a weak and sensitive woman while the men, especially Ned Bashford, are portrayed as educated and intellectually intelligent which creates a traditional division between femininity and masculinity. Loretta is continuously described as uncertain and sensitive to emotions and affections
She is violent and resentful of humans and wishes to live her own life, but later starts to care for humans. Ruth Bradley as D.S. Karen Voss, police partner of D.S. Pete Drummond.

The novel opens with a scenario following shortly after the epiphany that the protagonist had upon realizing that he is invisible. The story is narrated by him in retrospect whereby the idea of a first-person narrator which links to an invisible storyteller highlights the man’s invisibility. Furthermore, the protagonist’s name is never revealed in the novel which would suggest that we are receiving the information from a third party outsider. The narrator seems to have no personal investment in the words he speaks yet they are spoken by him. The prologue starts with the sentence “I am an invisible man” which links to the sentence in the Epilogue that states “I am an invisible man and it has placed me in a hole”.
Bec, the unstable and irresponsible college student that Kate hires to be her caretaker is seen like a wild, careless free spirit, but becomes a strong independent woman with values. Slowly the audience notices her physical changes that largely compare to the decrease in intensity of makeup used and the cleanliness of her clothing. Her hair well done into a braid, clean clothing, and almost a natural face emphasize her new persona’s changes. Unlike, in the beginning, Bec would unintentionally comment how she would Kate and question how she had to help Kate, but after the first scene in the shower they have, there seems to be a shift of perspective in Bec. She empathizes with Kate’s pain after she falls from attempting to go down the stairs on her own.
As people age, they may change due to situations that have an influence on their lives. Through life’s journey, people often face many important decisions in their search for their true identities. During this process, the decisions people are required to make help to define one’s personality and overall character. As people search for a sense of contentment, other people as well as one’s own internal feelings may alter the path that one takes, unexpectedly leading them to their true identities. In The Bicycle and The Metaphor, by Jillian Horton and Budge Wilson, respectively, both authors use characters who show how internal and external influences such as peer pressure, authority from parental figures, and guilt have the potential to alter Hannah and Charlotte’s desires and the choices they make to develop their true identities.
This realistic portrayal of adolescence sets the film apart from many others in its genre because Samantha is nothing like the one-dimensional teen characters found in many movies. ANTAGONIST - An antagonist who does an amazing job as the "evil villian" is Jesse Eisenberg, as Lex Luthor in Batman VS Superman: Dawn of Justice, directed by Zack Snyder. Lex Luthor has been Superman 's archenemy for most of Superman 's existence. He has also been envisioned as Superman 's dual opposite; morally depraved and relying on intellect over strength. STATIC - A character I find pretty static throught the whole movie is Neo from The Matrix, played by Keanu Reeves, directed by Lilly Wachowski and Lana Wachowski.

What do you think of the novel’s structure? How does each woman’s individual voice reinforce the novel’s themes as a whole? The Women of Brewster Place, by Gloria Naylor, is a novel that takes a unique approach in telling the narratives of the inhabitants of a community known as Brewster Place. Throughout the story, the narrator’s perspective is shifted between 7 of these people, with the last chapter coming from the perspective of the community as a whole during a neighborhood block party. I believe the structure Naylor used to tell her story - having each person’s background, one after another, told without disruption - is appropriate for it does not disrupt the flow, as it would if the perspectives were alternated between the characters a multitude of times.
It is not surprising to see that many people are unwilling to help others, whether they are strangers, close friends or family, when they are too occupied dealing with minor or major problems in their own life. However, in An Invisible Thread by Laura Schroff, the main characters Laura and Maurice demonstrate a completely different type of thinking. Their lives have not been easy, but they still try to give and assist, despite the circumstances they are in at that moment. This shows the readers that unlike the majority of the population, there are still some people who’d be happy to put others in front of themselves. The chances of actually noticing something you are used to seeing everyday and changing your actions is very slim.
