Hester changed her attire to a plain, darkshade, with no designs, which corresponded to her emotions. There was nothing she could accomplish to reduce the pain of the guilt since the truth was known by everyone in her hometown. As time went on, Hester regained some purport in her town. The townspeople demanded Hester for her skills and soon she did not need to wear the scarlet letter anymore, but she thought she deserved it.

Nobody stands up for the accused directly in the entire play, even if they feel really guilty about all the people dying, they still did not step up and say something (Sundstrand). Near the end of play, both Hale and Parris are sick of executing, and they try to do whatever they can to make Proctor confess, even if it’s a half-hearted one, so they would not have to see any more of the tragedy and feel guilty for
Rachel carried a grudge on Melinda for ruining the party, and she avoided confronting her to find out the real reason why Melinda called the cops. Melinda didn’t call the cops to ruin the party, she called because she was scared and didn’t know what to do after Andy raped
The pair knowing their fates is purely fate. No one choses to meet someone alone when there is a whole army surrounding them nor do people chose to know their fate. Macbeth’s wife dying is only fate, she went crazy because of her previous decisions but no one person chose to kill her. Her fate was sealed by her actions but she did not know her fate so her actions were not consciously made to advance her fate. While decisions play a role in our life many things that happen are not because of our actions or our decisions they are only guided by our
In the text, the girl does not discuss how she feels about the operation and avoids receiving any help to her situation This can be seen when the girl says "But I don't care about me. And I'll do it and then everything will be fine" (Hemingway 3). This verse shows readers how the man has pushed the girl in such a way, where she is forcing herself to go through the operation and hating herself for it. She could have avoided it all through communication with the man, instead she conceals her feelings and assumes everything will be "fine".This point is clear because the girl has concealed her emotions on the topic of abortion and it has led her to commit in something she obviously does not want to undergo and it has made her lose her sense of self worth. By saying she doesn't care for herself and assuring everything will be fine, it is obvious that the girl has a fear of abandonment.

Emily Brent was taking care of a young girl who got pregnant before marriage, which is against what Emily believes in so she kicked her out of her home, which then the young girl drowned herself. This is an awful situation, but Emily did not plan on having the girl kill herself, she didn't plan on it at all like Thomas did. Emily thought what the girl had done was wrong and she had the right to make her leave the home, it may be cruel but it doesn't deserve a punishment as severe as death. Thomas Rogers, on the other hand, does need that punishment because nothing has happened yet. ¨There was never a word against us.
She didn’t allow Eva Smith to take the aid from her Woman’s Charity Organisation because the girl took the name “Mrs Birling” as her name. This shows that the organisation is just a veneer for status and respectability rather than helping unfortunate women and shows that she has different rules for herself and the society. She denied all of her responsibilities and also blame other person:” I accept no blame for it at all.” She shows no regret at all, and she even lies to the Inspector when she said that she doesn’t know the girl from the photograph, she wants to cover up her responsibility and avoiding from potential problems for herself. She rejected to help when Eva Smith needs the most help, she was pregnant and has no money, living poorly, asking for charity was the final solution for her after being turned up and down so many time, and a rejection was what she received, lead her to make the final decision, to end up her life. Priestley had shown an even clearer point of view to the capitalistic society, that irresponsible and cold heartedness can kill a person, directly or
