Lastly, Huck didn’t put up with anyone telling him what to do, especially pap. Pap was racist and abusive, and Huck fought back even though he knew he’d be beat. Pap was furious that Huck was going to school and learning to write, on account of nobody else in the family being able to, saying: “You’re educated, too, they say; can read and write. You think you’re better’n your father, now, don’t you, because he can’t?
This is very different from Hawthorne’s story, Minister Hooper veiled his face though no one asked him to and that is what scared his congregation. For Hooper the veil embodied sin itself, upon exposing it, he was claiming himself guilty, but his intention was for all of his congregation to wear one, so that they too could understand the truth; judgement will come for everyone because we are all sinners. This cost Hooper dearly, he felt isolated he lost friends, Elizabeth, and the rapport he had with the children. He became lonely, a recluse, fearful of his own image. Even though he suffered in self- loathing it could also be said that he fell into the sin of pride because he could have ended his suffering and Elizabeth’s had he removed in private the veil in her presence.
It appears that a primary reason in Edna's marriage to Leonce is simply because of her father and sister’s aversion towards it (Magill 446). The class system Edna became a part of by marrying Leonce proves to be contrastingly different than her “strict Presbyterian upbringing” (Magill 446). An example of her abhorrence is when while attending church with Robert, Edna becomes conflicted and flees the scene. This is similar to when she was a child-her father read prayers to her in a “spirit of gloom”, which is what may have triggered her (Magill 447). Another suggested example of Edna's deep psychological dissonance stemming from her upbringing, is the fact that she is motherless and therefore cannot bond with Adele, the mother women, completely (Streater 411).

She hath the stones upon her, and the ducats.”” The quote delineates Shylock’s extreme lack of support for his daughter’s decision. First, an example of Shylock’s lack of support is his confusion. Though Shylock makes it appear as though his financial loss is almost as important, the loss of his daughter fleeing with a Christian seems incomprehensible to him. Another example is his outrage, which is evident throughout the passage.
“So she done it. And it was the niggers—I just expected it. She said the beautiful trip to England was most about spoiled for her; she didn 't know HOW she was ever going to be happy there, knowing the mother and the children warn 't ever going to see each other no more While Mary Jane packs her bags for England, she displays her sadness to Huck because she is distraught by the fact that the King and the Duke is selling Wilk’s slaves, separating the mother from their kids.
Moliere uses his play “Tartuffe” as a platform to openly call out the church of that day and expose them for the religious hypocrites they were. He uses an upper class family to depict each group in society, and how they can fall susceptible to the hypocrisy of the leaders, become bitter because of the misuse of power or learn to stand up and think for themselves. He uses the characters social status and gender in a way that would not conform to the social norm in that era. Women speak up and have more common sense, while the men are ignorant and their voice carries no weight within the family. Through others’ perceptions of an authority figure and the lack of people wanting to think for themselves, it was very easy for the clergy to take advantage of the common folk.

In James W. Loewen’s “The Land of Opportunity,” he states that social class affects the way children are raised.

Aging is a phenomena not only of the body, but of the mind as well. It is situational in practice, giving each journey into adulthood its own “thumbprint”. One’s trials and tribulations gain emotional weight as they are encountered, but the weight one holds at certain periods of time can differ according to their background. The novels Flight, The Joy Luck Club, and The Glass Castle; however, enlighten the possibility of resembling another’s venture into maturity, despite distinct differences in general conditions. Together, these three novels endeavor into their protagonists’ personalities, and they thematically portray coming-of-age transformation.
