So I married Curley (Steinbeck 88).” She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do. Also, she is not considered a “normal” wife; “normal” for that time meant she was supposed to stay inside and do chores and cook. Instead, she goes around, talks to the men working and hides from her husband. Curley’s wife is lonely because no one talks to her to prevent trouble. George said to Lennie, “well, you keep away from her, ‘cause she’s a rat trap if I’ve ever seen one (Steinbeck 32).” Undoubtedly, the two characters Lennie and Curley’s are very contrasting characters; nonetheless they both share the feeling of being different and alone.
Being divorced at a young age, Clara is reminiscent about her former marriage and is unable to overcome her past. She has had the same job at the same insurance company for almost two decades and remains living alone in the same house as she did when she was a child, even after her parents’ passing. Because she cannot let go of her prior life, she does not have the means or the incentives to “[make] something of herself” (Endicott 5). Clara’s need for redemption stems from her “state of mild despair” (4) as she is a middle-aged woman who has “nothing to show for [her life]” (4). Even without any burdens or financial stress, Clara feels that she is being “buried alive” (4) and constantly thinks about how “useless [she feels] in the world.” To Clara, there seemed to be some sort of “barrier between” (6) her and the world that she could not be
Not only did she already have postpartum depression, but she is basically trapped in this house for a whole summer with nothing to do so she can heal. Not following the instructions given to her by her doctor and being confined in this area has caused some sort of mental build up. The wallpaper driving her crazy, suffering a mental illness, and having such an isolated lifestyle in a house isolated from the main villages has put thoughts into her head that she believes, like being the woman in the wall. That was the effect; the cause of all of this is simply because she wanted something to do after having her whole life changed for a few months, so she went to the
This pattern of isolation had a negative effect on Jane Eyre that started at a young age for Jane Eyre and continued along with her until she experienced community and love in her marriage at Ferndean.

She discontinued her painting lessons because she did not want any relationships with the people around her. Naturally, some were offended by her standoffish attitude so they stopped sending her gifts during the holidays. Emily became so secluded, it seemed like she and everything in her house were suspended in time. Even the townspeople described her wallpaper and furniture as archaic and dust ridden when they toured her home after her death. She rarely went out and she spoke of her acquaintances as if they were alive, which shows that she was unaware of the changes and developments around
D-The arrived late to her session, but had called this writer prior. Upon meeting with the patient, her demeanor appeared to be sadden, at which this writer addressed. According to the patient as she became emotional and a bit tearful, she is now experiencing homelessness. The patient says, " My boyfriend mother 's right, they had to leave.

Milk served on a silver platter Unhappy with how her life was leading, First Corinthians was determined to give her life a purpose. After many attempts at finding a job she finally landed one as a maid of a white woman. She kept her identity a secret, and started building a life of her own. But, after revealing her concerns of Porter dropping her off closer to her house than usual, she gets reduced to a “Doll-baby,” someone artifical that does whatever their daddy tells them, when Corinthians only wanted to build an independent life for herself without losing her family in the process. But on the other side of her family, Milkman was given an identity and a purpose in life despite how immature and inappropriate he can act.
Didion wrote it years before John died, but after she reread it, she realized it described herself after his death. “Of course we would not need those last six notes to know what Elena’s dreams were about. Elena’s dreams were about dying. Elena’s dreams were about getting old…The point is that Elena remained remote most of all to herself, a clandestine agent who had so successfully compartmentalized her operation as to have lost access to her own cutouts” (Didion 159-160). This ties into Didion’s motif, lack of control because during this period of grief she is having dreams of not being able to save John from dying such as when he left on a plane without her and Didion is in the car watching him leave, having no way to get to him (Didion 160-161).
But a few years later, the narrator noticed the change in their household. Her mom no longer told her stories and used the word “plotting” to describe her mother who always had different schemes in order to keep her in the house to help with household chores. She had a suspicion that her mother did not appreciate her staying out of the house and helping her

He comes to visit her for the last time; Edna leaves Robert at her house and told him to wait for her. When she got back, Robert wasn’t there and left her a note, “I love you.

The first essay I chose to read was called I Am in Dementia Prison with My Mom, Janet had no prior knowledge or understanding as to why her mother’s health, mind, and thought process was deteriorating. She couldn’t come to terms with her mom being mental sick and when she did she had help and support from her entire family. The second was titled Transferring Mom was New, But Restlessness and Inactivity Kindled her Agitation. Against her and he husband better judgment she took her mom to the store. I believe she did this because she did not want to tell her mom no, as a caregiver, especially to a loved one sometime following your intuition and saying no can be difficult being I may feel like you are taking away their rights as a person.
