Offred tells about how her life in a series of flashbacks and the present. In the present she describes how she wishes she could gossip with the Martha's, and tells us in a flashback about her first meeting with the Commanders Wife, Serena. Gradually through the first ten or so chapters we begin to get a picture of what life is like in this dystopian America, and we come to realize that the Handmaidens, such as Offred, have no freedom and are treated as property with the sole purpose of reproduction. We meet Nick who commits an offense by winking at Offred and who is also ignored by her due to her fear of him being a
The initial action of the story was quite mysterious as no context is given to the reader, all the reader knows is that there are two characters, Gabriella and Liam, and that Liam isin Jasper Hospital for an unknown reason. From the narration the reader develops a recognition for the type of relationship the two share, “the scent reminds her of the homemade cleaning solution she prepared at Liam’s insistence. She used the mixture for a week, until she noticed it took twice as long to remove the grime as the concrete she bought at the janitorial supply store. Liam hadn’t notice she stopped using it.” (Helgason, 71) The initial action has a great hook, the hook occurs when the reader knows that Liam is in the hospital, this raises a lot of questions, why is he injured? How did he get injured?
In the beginning of the novel, Devil’s Arithmetic, we see Hannah not really caring about the past, but as the story continues, she realizes how crucial it is to remember. “All Jewish holidays are about remembering.” (4) Hannah said this before dinner explaining how she is tired of thinking about the same things every year, every holiday. She always hears the same thing over and over again and is tired of it. However, she has a flashback at passover and sees what her family and other people had to go through. Right when she walked into the lifeless, cold concentration camp her mindset of remembering disappeared.
Judy suppressed everything she felt, never confronting Danny. She played it all off, avoiding the drama she might cause.

When moments passed with no answer from her, Danny entered Judy’s room, “Her desk chair had been pulled out and right above it she swayed, hung to the ceiling.
He knows the history of Eva Smith and the Birlings ' involvement in it, even though she had only died a few hours ago. In act two the Inspector states “She kept a rough sort of diary. And she said there that she had to go away and be quiet and remember "just to make it last longer." She felt there 'd never be anything as good again for her - so she had to make it last longer.” This is an exceptionally personal moment for the Inspector, who gives us one of the first views at Eva Smith 's personality and morals. He states that he has found the diary in Eva Smith 's room, although how would he have had time to look inside her room, much less investigate the Birlings involvement in her life.
At times, I became frustrated, feeling unappreciated and wondering why we had chosen such a lonely life. My husband was the only person I had, and yet he seemed so distant.

In the beginning of the poem written by Millay, she talks about the changes between the woman's past and present, “pity me not for beauties passed away/from field and thicket as the year goes by” (Lines 3-4). These two lines are meant to show that the wife knows her husband no longer sees her as a beautiful wife, but she does not want anyone to feel bad for her because each year that goes by, she ages and that is something she can not stop from happening. This is the first sign that she is heartbroken but too humble to let other people feel her pain. A few lines later in the poem Millay explains what is already assumed by the reader, “Nor that a man’s desire is hushed so soon,/and you no longer look with love on me” (7-8). The spouse does not desire to be with his wife anymore.
