However, when a women is looked at just as herself and not as a rich man’s daughter she is not seen a colleague to men but as an object that is to be pitied.

It takes everything he has just to look at her, but at the same time he can not turn away and escape the look in her eye (Lawrence 463). This creates a sympathetic mood because Dr. Ferguson feels bad for Maybel who has just become poor and attempted to kill herself.
man conflict with his teacher. In the beginning of the book when Matt receives a teacher, he finally gets fed up with her enough that he, “grabbed Teacher’s carefully arranged apples and hurled them every which way” (Farmer 73).

This brings it to the next part of the spectrum: the fear of breaking the norm. A prime example of this is Josephine as she attempted to push herself away from chocolate only to avoid being beaten by her husband Serge. During her encounter with Vianne at the bar, Josephine hesitantly asks if her husband knows about the sudden appearance. In this same scene, she speaks of the mayor as if she was against what he says but could not bring herself to challenge his power. Theorists of conflict and symbolic interactionism would suggest that this interaction is one of the effects from the patriarchal concept of women being subordinate to men.
The type of conflict used in this novel to add depth and complexity to the story as well as the character of Henry Fleming is Man versus Self. This is shown through his issues with masculinity, courage, and self image. Lastly, and decidedly the hardest to detect conflict in the novel is Man versus Nature. Nature is used not the conventional way, but to show the power human nature has on a person’s thoughts and actions.

To see how dire their situation was, one must must only have to read A Midsummer Night’s Dream. While fictitious, this story does show one bit of truth, the way women were being treated during this era.
The Horse Dealer’s Daughter “The Horse Dealer’s Daughter” by D.H. Lawrence describes the life of Mabel and her current situation after the passing of her father. Mabel and her three brothers, Joe, Fred, and Malcom all took a seat around the table after their father’s demise, which had left them all in major debt. (Pg. 506, Paragraph 2) Mable’s Brother’s are able to leave and find labor, while Mabel is in a delimma on what to do. “Well Mabel, and what are you going to do with yourself?” (506 Paragraph 1) All she had ever known was taking care of the house and gratifying that role that their servants once had when they were once not poor.

A feminist analysis could reveal what behavior was expected and accepted for men and women. For example, one may point out that when Matilda discovered the “‘unlady-like’” habit of swearing, the focus was not that her father taught her the habit, but that a female was swearing (51). Although this is an excellent way to analyze this story, it is limited, as the gender roles in this story are outdated. Although men and women are expected to act a certain way in modern times, it is more accepted if one does not follow these unwritten rules. Granted, it can be argued that modern society does not perceive men and women equally.
