As scholar Kay Stone notes “heroines are not allowed any defects, nor are they required to develop, since they are already perfect.” In the end, the heroine is saved by a noble Prince and gets her happy ending

In his novel, Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury challenges the boring prescribed dystopian world where there is only one approved perspective on life.

After all, she represents the scarlet letter: wild, passionate, and completely oblivious to the rules, mores, and legal statutes of the time. “But again Hawthorne, by connecting the above moral platitude and by portraying the elf child not as treacly little paragon- like little Eva- but rather as a goad as much as a comfort to her mother elevates the emotional tone of the situation so that it is hardly recognizable.”(William 3). Pearls had a individualistic passionate innocence. Hawthorne presents hypocrisy with forgiveness. Peal does not see her mother as a sinner because she has been isolated by puritan society and as a result does not have the same beliefs.

Juvenal Urbino is used to develop a new, expected pragmatism towards affection. When involved with Florentino in her youth, Fermina would give into the drives of emotion, but she now finds that reflection on her feelings leads to more rational decisions. When reminded of her past with Florentino, she is metaphorically “tormented by the phantom of guilt” and is affected by this mentally when she blames others for things they hold no responsibility for (Marquez 204). Fermina begins to have doubts about her marriage, but upon reflecting on her vow to her husband, Fermina “accomplishes what reason indicated as the most decent thing to do...she wiped away the memory of Florentino Ariza.”(Marquez 206) Marquez uses this internal conflict to eventually realize Fermina’s fears, and through her response to them, indirectly characterizes her. Her actions of using reason as opposed to emotion demonstrate to the reader how she has since gained a degree of mastery over her feelings.
In reading, it can be also found that Bartleby 's life and that of the woman are very impersonal, but Bartleby 's is more since the woman, at least, the woman tries to communicate with her son and her husband in order to solve it is happening to her. An obvious difference between the woman and Bartleby is when she realizes that she was wrong, “What has happened to me, I’m not myself anymore.” (Pg. 40) This is represented when she hit the child because of his antics. Her husband tried to help her in many times; he hired a nanny. This made the wife feel freer for a little bit.
