Her fate madness and resolved to die” (4.656-57). Madness, here, does not seem to be synonymous with insanity. Her calm plotting and planning prove that she has rational thought left, yet her judgement is quite clouded. Despair works in waves; ebbing away, it allows her to act calm, but it is still present, lurking under the surface. Then, despair strikes, and drowns her ability to see that ending her life is unnecessary.
I believe that the song “Love Myself” by Hailee Steinfield fits perfectly with the scene of the last meeting between Rose and Ted. The song talks about coping after a nasty breakup and realizing self-value and confidence. Throughout the book it is referenced that Rose is very much without courage. She believes everything her mom tells her, she is very timid, and in her marriage she lives in the shadow of Ted.
People need authentic human interaction to be truly happy. This claim is supported by the novel, Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury, the film, Pleasantville directed by Gary Ross, and the article, Why Loneliness Is Bad for Your Health by Nancy Shute. In Fahrenheit 451, people need authentic human interaction to be truly happy. This is supported with Montag and Mildred’s relationship and how Mildred says the parlor walls are “really fun” (18), but she still tried to commit suicide.

The ending result a murder scene. Is she really at blame for her actions and should she be punished? Believing that she is truly insane this would entail that she is completely innocent and therefore not to be punished. Thesis: Medea’s insanity which led her to killing her children suggests she let her emotions take control of her proving she is not at fault for her actions.
All the while, Beloved is distracted by her need for revenge on her mother, taking advantage of the attention Sethe gives her. Instead of realizing that this attention is all she really desires, Beloved takes a turn for the worse, slowly wearing her loving mother
Hale as she is seeing first-hand what has become of the once vibrant Minnie Foster. It is interesting Mrs. Hale keeps referring to Mrs. Wright by her name before she married Mr. Wright. The author does this to reinforce the differences in the kind of person Minnie Foster was and the kind of person Mrs. Wright is. Mrs. Peters is also seeing and feeling how sad and lonesome life has been for Mrs. Wright. Mrs. Hale regrets not being a better friend and is beginning to feel some culpability for the murder of Mr. Wright.
‘Unwrap me hand and foot, the big strip tease’ conveys the idea that Plath is being de-clothed, which, contextually, could be a metaphor for being stripped of any passion due to the intensity of her depression, an illness which Plath experienced all her life and ultimately led to her death. This image could be Plath emulating the feeling close to death, having nothing and being exposed. This idea of being exposed could then be linked back to the concept of a performance, where her actions are completely open, unprotected, free to be scrutinised by the public and her peers. The title ‘Lazy Lazarus’, is a biblical reference to a figure whom Jesus raised from the dead, and at the end of the poem, shown in the line ‘Out of the ash’, Plath compares herself to a Phoenix, a mythological bird typically linked with the concept of rebirth. This could suggest that her previous suicide attempts were always attempted with the knowledge that she would return, and be reborn.
From this it follows that Lady Russell is very protective of Anne and naturally only wants what is best for her in order to ensure that she has a good future. However, Lady Russell’s goodwill/favour becomes a danger to Anne’s happy ending since the best for Anne is actually what Lady Russell personally considers to be best and this view is not necessarily in accord with what would make Anne happy as the two women do not share the same basic set of beliefs: Lady Russell is presented as a wealthy (cf. Persuasion 7), “benevolent” (Persuasion 12), “charitable” (ibid.) widow (cf. Persuasion 7) who is, however, flawed in so far as she “had prejudices on the side of ancestry; she had a value for rank and consequence” (Persuasion 13).
Noy’s “Auntie” cared for as long as she could before she had to leave and eventually returned home. Years later Noy was reunited with her and still had the same attachment and love towards her, as she remembered she did in her childhood. With the passing time and maturity Noy realized her “Auntie” was her true protector as a child and attempted to shield her as much as possible. Noy wanted to express her appreciation for this but was fearful to bring it up all these years later. Noy expresses a sense of regret during her presentation, that she was unable to protect her cherished “Auntie” as she had protected her.
Feeling shunned from the moment she was placed behind those walls, her savior from this dark time was CCWP. When Samantha spoke, I felt the passion in her voice, her love for the people who granted her a second chance at life and with her family. Heartbroken, humbled, and angry all at once, I was faced with questions I’d never before contemplated. How was I not hearing about the horrors these women go through?
As the book ends Paul D returns, and finds Sethe laying down in Baby Sugg’s bed ready to die (70). Sethe cried out to Paul that she lost the most meaningful person in her life, Beloved (70). Paul D then hugged her as he told her she was the best thing to ever happen to him (70). Instead of Morrison writing about families being separated, she writes about them being sold as if they were livestock (71). Morrison chose to write about the African-American experiences during slavery (Heinze 127).
