That is why I think that Chinese Cinderella is a depressing story. My whole essay shows that how Adeline is mentally and physically abused by most of her family. The reason that I chose this is because that during her lifetime she never got any love from her parents especially Naing when she married father so then she got even less respect.

‘His unlooked for return was enough to make her heart sink.’() Austen uses dictation to describe Catherine’s despondency, often using derogatory terms with negative prefixes such as, ‘discomposed’, ‘disappointment’, displeasure, distressed’. In contrast, she uses complimentary terms to describe Catherine and Eleanor’s burgeoning friendship, like ‘joyfully, thankfully, and happiness. ‘How joyfully, how thankfully on my side!’ Principally, Austen increases reader interest in the novel through her use of rhetorical techniques, like satire, and irony. Written in third person limited omniscient, filtered predominantly through Catherine, the unknown narrator slips effortlessly into free indirect disclosure, which effectively adopts the tone, and inflection, of the individual characters voice. This technique allows the narrator to intrude into the narrative to offer advice, or to foreshadow the characters.
