In Lisa Moore’s “The Lonely Goatherd” and Michael Crummey’s “Heartburn” there’s a continuous breakdown of the couples’ relationships. Repressed feelings, infidelity and the symbolism of Signal Hill and drowning, help strengthen the theme of a lack of communication between Sandy and Georgie from “Heartburn” and Carl and Anita in “The Lonely Goatherd”. Sandy struggles to express his thoughts and feelings with his wife Georgie. Carl is constantly cheating on Anita and neglecting their marriage. This communication problem causes their relationships to deteriorate, which results in great strife for the ones involved.

After Tybalt is slain Romeo states, “O, I am a fortune’s fool.”(p 49). This is his recognition of of the misfortunes that have befallen him with his cousin-in-law and best friend. The tragedy that occured in the streets of Verona clearly left romeo as emotionally injured as anyone else.
Conflicts among families and friends Conflicts among families and friends are destructive and only demolish relationships and hurt innocent people. When hateful behavior is not only accepted, but encouraged in families it can only end tragically. In the classic Shakespearian play “Romeo and Juliet” the storyline predominantly revolves around a feud between the Montagues and the Capulets. Shakespeare emphasizes the effects of hatred between families through the deaths of Romeo and Juliet, Mercutio, and Tybalt. The feud ends with numerous deaths including Romeo, Mercutio, Paris, Juliet, and Tybalt.
They didn't even care about going to the party uninvited it didn’t hurt their self-respect simply because they were careless people. The imagery in the “The Great Gatsby” also portrayed love. In one scene “he adjusted himself a little visibly. His hand took hold of hers, and as she said something low in his ear he turned toward her with a rush of emotion. I think that voice held him most, with its fluctuating, feverish warmth, because it couldn’t be over- dreamed.”(Fitzgerald pg.96) During this scene the level of love that Gatsby is feeling is unexplainable.
Being taken advantage of and naivety come together hand in hand. Therefore, in Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, the Tree is naive and being taken advantage of because she puts the Boy’s happiness and well-being ENTIRELY above her own, ultimately leading to her self destruction. The Boy also habitually returns to reap the benefits of the Tree because he is knows the Tree will not reject him, and that the Tree even feels sorry on his behalf because of his misfortune. Although some argue that the Tree and the Boy have a mother-son relationship, implying that she is willfully sacrificing for the Boy, it does not disprove that the Boy takes advantage of her, and that she lets him do it. Self care is defined by the Oxford Dictionary as “the practice of taking an active role in protecting one 's own well-being and happiness” and as “the practice of taking action to preserve or improve one 's own health.” The title character neglects this practice which every person– or in this case, every personified being, owes to their survival.
When Uncle Pio sees Camila, he sees her as a combination of his great aims in life "his passion for overseeing the lives of others, his worship of beautiful women, and his admiration for the treasures of Spanish literature." He found her when she was hardly a teenager and trained her to act and sing in the theatre, using and abusing her for her talents. Although the crowd always loved her, according to Pio nothing that she did was ever good enough. He overworked her and berated her, pushing her to the point of tears. When she did not perform to his impossible standards, he would practically torture her over it, "talk for an hour, analyzing the play…often until dawn…" (p. 76).
Only a toilet bowl, inaccessible to the eye, if not the ear, of the tenants” (Toni 34-35). This house has no positive experiences for Pecola. Her days are filled with witnessing domestic violence and the habitual drunkenness of her father. The sense of bleakness and hopelessness of this house is best described by the fact that “the only living thing in the Breedloves’ house was the coal stove, which lived independently of everything and everybody” (37). When you live with a family that think you are ugly and told you every day that you are not beautiful.
In the Novel Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, a variety of relationships, as well as the characters in them, meet a grizzly end. This is apparent in the deaths of both Lennie and Curley’s wife. Lennie’s dependency on Gerogoe led to him not being able to function and make rational decisions on his own. While Curley’s wife had no support from her husband and gave none in return leading to a lonely and loveless marriage, causing her to seek companionship wherever she could find it. Their unhealthy relationships led to their demise due to the lack of support they were receiving from their partners emotionally.
They both have dissimilar reasons for their depression, but have a single way of coping with it. Suzy’s depression is ignited by the fact her stern, cheat of a mother is having an affair with Mr. Fox—who has no acknowledgement of what could happen to others involved. Her mom’s uncaring tone used when hollering through the megaphone when it was time to eat and the book Suzy found, “The Very Troubled Child,” are clues to why she is uninterested in her mother; on top of it all, her father’s distance is what makes Suzy feel unwanted and isolated. Sam on the other hand is desolate, orphaned, and restrained. His parents are deceased and he travels from one home to another with only the pride of being a khaki scout, but not even that is enough to make him happy.

The problem that they have is that there 's some miscommunication between them. Being completely honest about a problem they dislike and
Mallard’s weakness by conveying a feeling of fright and hysteria. For example, she cries “with sudden, wild abandonment” (555) in her sister’s arms, and then feels something “creeping out of the sky” (555); she waits for it “fearfully” (555). She is afraid because she feels happiness approaching her and that is not the socially correct feeling she should be having about the report of her husband’s passing. She does not want people to realize that she feels freedom because they will criticize her for not being destroyed by the news. She is ecstatic that she will not have a “powerful will bending her” (556) actions anymore and “her fancy [is] running riot along [the] days ahead of her” (556).
The act of murder is abhorrent in itself, although even more so when it’s your own children. Medea demonstrated through these killings that she greatly lacks a sense of morality. The Nurse often commented on Medea’s practicality and logic throughout the Greek tragedy in quotes such as “[Medea] hates her sons […] I dread to think of what is hatching in her mind. (1)” and “Why make the sons share in their father 's guilt? (20-21)”.
