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.
For some people it means getting in with the wrong crowd, as longs as it means they are accepted. For Mayella Ewell that meant trying to be loved by a man she didn’t love. “She was as sad, I thought, as what Jem called a mixed child: white people wouldn’t have anything to do with her because she lived among pigs; Negros wouldn’t have anything to do with her because she was white” (To Kill A Mockingbird pg 256). Mayella seems to be an outcast to everyone, including her own family.
In to kill a mockingbird I would most definitely say that racism & ignorance are just two words to describe a mad dog. They story is very exertive which makes it pop! It tells us about how someone who is inarticulate would want to have an irreproachable man killed for adultery and flaggellat an loathsome woman, with the need of satisfactory from her father. In the novel we see how the father weild his evil ways to put an immpecable man on trial.

In this chapter, it exposes the physical conditions that came with the misfortune of the DeLaceys family.
A very similar thing happens in To Kill a Mockingbird, when Bob Ewell accuses Tom Robinson of raping his daughter Mayella, but Atticus proves that it was most likely Bob who did it. Bob Ewell, Mayella’s dad, the person who should be protecting her at all costs. The most common injustice in the novel appears when the kids find the case between Tom Robinson and the Ewell family to be unfair, highly illogical, and racist. When the verdict of guilty is revealed to the town, Jem becomes upset and says, “You just can’t convict a man on evidence like that- you can’t”
When she says this, she means she does not love him as much as her sisters say they do, because it would not be fair to anyone else if she gave all her love to him and none to, for example, a husband. This is a major blow to the King, he feels entitled to all of Cordelia's love, yet is only allowed to have a portion of it. Cordelia's stance is just, for if she has no love left to give to her husband, she would not have any happiness in her life other than her own father. Lear does not see this however, and is highly offended by her lack of affection for him. This creates as awkward dynamic between the two, for the relationship he craves seems to romantic, yet Cordelia knows better than to allow this to be true.

Her father stood by the door’s path blocking Emily’s would be suitors from accessing her because he believed they were not good enough for her daughter. This sets the stage for his daughter loneliness. Throughout William Faulkner’s “a rose for Emily” he uses the house, Emily’s hair, and the rose to portray change and decay. The house in which she lives with her father embodies decay and was like a prison in which she was locked and suitor bared from accessing her.
Even though Frankie hated the fact the the Angel on the Seventh Step kept bringing babies, the suffering of his mother and the fact the his father is worthless, he still did all he could to make something out of nothing. He became a man a young age and wanted to make his mother proud. In the story Frank states, “ I’m a man now…” to indicate that he felt like a mane because he was going to make some coins (258). This reminds me of the story “The Rocking Horse Winner”, where the boy only wanted to please his mother who was just as weak minded as Frank’s mother. Angela, Frank’s mother is very weak minded.
