The story does not say why Miss Emily’s father died and it was clear that he had not treated her well and had denied her a relationship with any of the young men. Homer Barron had also denied her a relationship with him, and because of it he lost his life. Homer Barron had even stated to the townspeople that, “He was not a marrying man” (1107). Still, this did not stop Miss Emily and she took an extreme measure to keep him near. Maybe this is why Tobe stuck around and went to the market for her year after year.

Maybe because it’s down in a hollow and you don’t see the road. I dunno what it is, but it’s a lonesome place and always was. I wish I had come over to see Minnie Foster sometimes. I can see now- … Not having children makes less work- but it makes a quiet house, and Wright out to work all say, and no company when he did come in.” this is a prime example of the alienation that Mrs. Wright went through. Her house was away from everything, everyone and even when her husband was home it was like she was still alone.
He lives in her house for a long time, he knows what is happening with Ms. Emily and inside her house and prefers to be quiet.

They were a very loving and close-knit family and their presence in room 202 gave something for the girls to look forward to each week.
Torvald tells her that Nora has a duty as a mother and a wife but Nora tells him that “she is an individual”, showing that she is finally putting herself on par with Torvald, and no longer allowing Torvald to control her, but instead she is trying to gain independence and liberation from social norms in order to break free from the “Doll’s House.” She tells him that she must leave him, because “for eight years [she’d] been living with a stranger”, emphasising how there was never any proper communication and mutual understanding between them, and hence no proper marriage, as she didn’t actually know what his true character was like up until that night, as she was convinced all along that Torvald would be the man to take everything upon
