During the first soliloquy we encounter a Hamlet who feels betrayed. He is anguished by his mother’s action. His conscious mind records only the fact that Queen Gertrude, the other half of his parental figure has marries the brother of his father with, ‘the same shoes that she walked to my father’s dead body (…) and they haven’t become old yet!’ He seems to be hurting more from the wedding rather than the death of his beloved father.
D.H. Lawrence uses these archetypes to tell a story, one of a tormented family living in a financially insolvent household. He spins this tale using Hester, Paul, and Oscar. Hester represents the terrible mother, whose heartlessness and neglect damages her children, destroying them. Paul represents the sacrificial scapegoat who supplants his father’s role in the family unit and tries to win his mother’s love, only to die in the attempt. Uncle Oscar represents the anti-wise, taking advantage of Paul when he should be guiding him.

Magdalene’s comparison parallels Milkman’s actions to how Macon II simply ruins the live of his tenants carelessly. Finally, Corinthians states that she and her sister will no longer create the artificial roses and allow milkman to benefit from their labor. This shows how her disdain for her brother motivates Magdalene to stand up for herself by cutting off a toxic relationship with her brother. It is also significant that the sisters create fake roses which symbolize the lack of love and false love within the dead household. And now that the production of fake roses has ceased so has the artificial love between her and her brother.

This, in turn, caused Troy 's mother to abandon him, leaving him without love from a parent or anyone to show him the correct way to treat females, a sin that affects his relationship with Rose as an adult. His father 's treatment of Troy made Troy believe there was more to his suffering than what was humanly possible "The gal jumped and run off...and when my daddy turned to face me, I could see why the devil had never come to get him...cause he was the devil himself"(Wilson 52).This metaphor used by Troy, adds a certain weight to the gravity of his situation as a teen. His father wasn 't just cruel but was the devil, a symbol of pure hate and all evil.
When talking to Oswald she says, “When he returns from hunting, I will not speak with him. Say I am sick.” She was only ignoring her father because she felt he “…wronged her.” (Act 1 Scene III) Goneril and Regan are both married and in turn receive their father’s good graces.
In Hamlet, the women, Ophelia and Gertrude are portrayed as subordinate to the men around them and are dependent on them for their social standing, power, and influence. Hamlet is ranting on his mother 's hasty marriage to his Uncle Claudius. Ophelia laments over Hamlet leaving her in ruins, with nothing left to live for. Let me not think on 't; frailty, thy name is woman!(1.2.141-150). By Gis and by Saint Charity, Alack and fie for shame, Young men will do 't, if they come to 't; By Cock, they are to blame.
Ross and Lady Macduff are talking when she brings up her husband. She tells Ross that she doesn’t trust Macduff any longer, and believes he is a traitor.

Having for all intents and purposes nothing in like manner, they are bound by marital bonds. For Maya, opportunity is outlandish unless she uproots Gautama, her spouse. She pushes him from the parapet in an attack of rage and to transfer the albino 's prediction about death to Gautama. Anita Desai has effectively shown the transformation of a sensitive woman into a neurotic person.
Jack Finney uses Tom Benecke’s epiphany to illustrate that it is not the materialistic things in life that matter, but rather the relationships that are formed, that account for life’s greatest moments in the short story “Contents of the Dead Man’s Pockets”. An epiphany is a sudden realization that occurs in literature. In the story, Tom’s epiphany occurs to him during a near death experience in his attempt to retrieve an important piece of paper from a ledge. Short Stories for Students depicts that “Tom's epiphany occurs when he realizes that he has nothing in his pockets except for the yellow piece of paper filled with his incomprehensible notes. . . . This, in turn, leads him to the larger truth: he has been living a wasted life" (“‘Contents’”
Contrary To Popular Belief People perceive historical events in their own unique way. Many consider the roaring 20’s as a lively time in the U.S, however Fitzgerald views the people in this time period as not possessing morality, not showing concern for the poor and not achieving happiness. In his book, The Great Gatsby, Nick’s comment to Gatsby “they’re a rotten crowd” appears to sum up Fitzgerald's perspective and feel of the 20’s. Firstly, Fitzgerald evidently viewed the 20’s as a “rotten crowd” because he saw a lack of morality in that era.
