First, she has some extremely bad habits such as cutting herself, smoking weed, and overdosing on pills. Her reason for doing this is that she believes it will solve all of her problems. Although Natalie has two older sisters as great role models, she is the complete opposite of them. When her older sisters have problems, they always decide to talk to someone to get it out of their mind. On the other hand, when Natalie has a problem, she either does drugs, cuts herself, or runs away and makes bad choices with older men.

I saw you. It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223) This differs greatly from Jane, who begins to sympathize with the plight of all domestic women through her experience with the woman behind the yellow wallpaper. Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.
Literary Critique In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” written by Sharon Flake, I Felt the author expressed the scene very well by bringing the situation to life through the characters actions. In the story ”Who Am I Without Him” the main Character was bad because that is who she is, and she thought to herself if there is something wrong with being herself.

One subject they tend to talk about often is motherhood. Larsen continues her use of character foiling through the contrasting of Irene’s and Clare’s feelings about motherhood to emphasize how their contrasting situations influence their feelings. Clare does not enjoy being a mother. She believes that it is too much pressure, especially because she doesn’t want her daughter’s skin to reveal that she has a black parent. She says, “I nearly died of terror the whole nine months before Margery was born for fear she might be dark.
Through Curley’s wife, Crooks, and Candy, John Steinbeck had used his way to state how those characters had endured their loneliness throughout the book “Of Mice and Men”. Curley’s wife would not be a pleasant character in many ways. As a wife of manager’s son, she was described as a charming and flirty woman and treated others with scorn. However, her appearances later had shown actually she was just an immature, innocent and lonely woman who missed her chance to be a successful movie star in Hollywood and compelled to marry Curley. “If I’d went, I wouldn’t be livin’ like this, you bet” (Steinbeck 84) Accordingly, she felt unfair for her life and doesn’t want to get stuck on the ranch but she knew she could do nothing about it.
Some of the music selection was also weak. In particular the string music when Lisa returns home from the club felt misplaced. A few other smaller issues that I had wit the film include: Lisa’s anger, which was not at the level it should have been given the given her circumstances of exploitation ; the choice to have Lisa smoke, it looked so unnatural almost to the point of humor and it served no narrative purpose; and, finally, Lisa’s necklace looks cheap, which was particularly distracting because it is so prominent in the film. It did not appear to have the value that it should
