Society is a strong force that molded Edna as a woman, but through her suicide, she was finally able to escape its grasp. She wasn’t wife nor mother material, and as she became conscious of it through the development of the novel, Edna isolated herself so she could be awaken. “I could only see the stretch of grass before me, and I feel as if I must walk on forever, without coming to the end of it” (Chopin 19). Edna is beginning to see her role as a wife and mother as eternal and inescapable. So, at the birth of Adele’s child, she starts to find it quite frightening because at this point Edna is reminded to stay dedicated and devoted to her children.
She did not fit in with her culture clash and gender roles. It led her to become clairvoyant (Wagner 40). Plath wanted to fit in with everyone else but she never got the opportunity. She ended up killing herself for many reasons some were explained and some were not.

The describes how much the speaker hates waiting for their loved one, and how she wishes she could just throw all that wasted time away. The poem hints at this throughout it’s entirety and then some. One of the ways Emily Dickinson makes the theme known is by the tone/attitude of the speaker. The speaker continuously makes remarks about time itself and how she doesn't appreciate the time she spends alone “if i could see you in a year, I’d wind the months in balls and put them each in separate drawers, until their time befalls” (Dickinson, 2nd stanza) This shows that the speaker is getting desperate for the attention of the person she’s waiting for. With the amount of desperation in the speaker's voice it can be assumed that whoever she’s waiting for is special to her heart.
If it were not for her nightmares she too would have passed. However, she could not sleep so instead read and wrote while in the basement.

"The Jilting of Granny Weatherall" is an unusual narrative that tells of the last thoughts of a dying woman. With each sentence the reader can very seemingly see how the main character, Granny, starts to forget major events in her life and lose grasp of whats going on around her. As the story is in Granny 's point of view, the audience is very limited in the knowledge they have of the story, however at times when Granny has flashbacks the text changes to a third person point of view. Granny 's character is the portrayal of a strong and determined single mother who was left a widow after her husband, John, died. Despite being on her death bed Granny feels as if she just fell ill of a common cold and believes she would be better in a few days.
The poem, “Pity Me Not,” by Edna St. Vincent Millay has a theme of heartbreak. The woman the author is writing about replays in her mind how things used to be compared to how they are now. The woman realizes things will never be like they once were and she is ready to accept that. She is heartbroken over that fact that her husband no longer loves her anymore but instead of asking for sympathy, she says do not pity me. In the beginning of the poem written by Millay, she talks about the changes between the woman's past and present, “pity me not for beauties passed away/from field and thicket as the year goes by” (Lines 3-4).
No longer was she the smiling and blushing woman on the scaffold, she turned into a woman whose guilt ate her alive. Hester felt as if "no fellow-mortal was guilty like herself" (Hawthorne 95). Hester claimed that if the sins of everyone in town were announced as hers there would be more people wearing scarlet letters (Hawthorne 94), perhaps the town would have an entire alphabet of scarlet letters (Dawson 1011). Hester's situation made her lonely, she felt as if no one truly understood where she stood. The only companion Hester had was her beloved daughter, however, Pearl was a constant reminder of Hester's sin (Dawson 1011).
Didion wrote it years before John died, but after she reread it, she realized it described herself after his death. “Of course we would not need those last six notes to know what Elena’s dreams were about. Elena’s dreams were about dying. Elena’s dreams were about getting old…The point is that Elena remained remote most of all to herself, a clandestine agent who had so successfully compartmentalized her operation as to have lost access to her own cutouts” (Didion 159-160). This ties into Didion’s motif, lack of control because during this period of grief she is having dreams of not being able to save John from dying such as when he left on a plane without her and Didion is in the car watching him leave, having no way to get to him (Didion 160-161).
