In the climax of the novel Dimple feels’ “something had torn loose and was hanging, in space”(208). Thus Dimple has been portrayed free and rebelling throughout the novel. She has no inhibition in expressing whatever she feels. Her husband Amit’s murder signifies how an innocent, duty conscious husband falls a prey to the neurotic madness of his wife.

In the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, Charlotte Perkins Gilman represents how wretchedness is overlooked and changed into blended sentiments that eventually result in a significantly more profound enduring incongruity. The Yellow Wallpaper utilizes striking mental and psychoanalytical symbolism and an effective women's activist message to present a topic of women' have to escape from detainment by their male centric culture. In the story, the narrator's better half adds to the generalization individuals put on the rationally sick as he confines his significant other from social circumstances and keeps her in an isolated house.

But Jill is still stereotyped in the series in general. In Resident Evil 5 for a brief quarter of the game Jill is the antagonist, the damsel and the tough “action girl”. As she represents several tropes at once, her message as a character becomes convoluted, as anyone can be a victim, in her case as a damsel and antagonist, and a women can overcome death as explained through the game. Jill Valentine is consistently sexualized through her appearance, character dialogue and weakened by her damsel situations. However, there is hope when a new television series called, Kim Possible is introduced in
Charlotte Gilman chose unreliable first person point of view for the story “The Yellow Wallpaper” because it is the best way to truly explain what the protagonist saw and felt. “The Yellow Wallpaper” is a collection of journal entries written by a hysteric woman whose treatment includes being locked in a room by her husband. First person narrative is the best way to watch her break from reality unfold before your eyes. The journal entries allow the reader to have an inside look at her insanity. First person point of view brings the reader directly into the protagonist’s thoughts and actions.
Technology brainwashed Mildred and the lack of social skills she contains with others is completely appropriate in her society. Mildred is so fixated with her TV family to the point where she tells Montag she wants him to put in a fourth wall-TV. This is similar to The Handmaid’s Tale, where technology is used only by the regime of Gilead. At the beginning of the novel, Offred explains her fear of being observed at all times, not only by the commander, but by everyone else in the regime. Throughout the article, the readers see that the fear of “the most complete violation of humanity would be the replacement of the human with machine in perfect conformity with the system which created it.”
As Helen Cixous suggests, Gilman “breaks up truth with laughter.” (11) Although it was written hundred years ago yet it has so much relevance in the contemporary world. By strongly criticizing the culture and tradition of outside world, Gilman has brought this imaginary world with a feminist perspective. She has presented in her novel that, gender difference, suppression and oppression of women, sexual harassment, rape, will continue throughout the years. Gilman’s works are strongly embedded and connected with women like Women and Economics, Concerning Children, The home: Its work and Influence and many more. Herland depicts the breakdown of isolated society and expresses the changed ideas and the conflict between the outside world and their world.
A typical Narayan story may begin in a variety of ways. The endings of Narayan’s short stories show a strong influence of O. Henry’s celebrated technique of the trick finale. All the stories in which irony, either comic or tragic plays a shaping role naturally have a surprise ending like in Engine Trouble. The setting for most of Narayan’s stories is Malgudi. His stories appear to be, by and large, a museum of minor motifs.
