In the beginning of the book, Catherine is reluctant to write in the journal, and she constantly complains about her situation.

The most used type of irony in the play was situational irony because the characters in the play did not play for any of the outcomes that will happen as the play progresses. In the play, Lady Macbeth is shown that she does not think about the consequences that may come with one’s action.

She didn 't see Sacramento the same , it wasn 't the place she grew up in anymore. As it did towards the people in san Francisco, she saw how they were worsening their situation after running away from their homes to start over in the golden land.
I don’ like Curley.” (pg. 89 Steinbeck) With this Curley 's wife attempts to explain for the first time her unhappy marriage to Curley. In The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton Cherry Valance 's relationship with Bob is portrayed similarly: Bob is always drinking and Cherry hates Bob 's personality and impulsive actions, but she seems too scared to break up with him because she might lose her status in the gang.
