The observations that Adah makes could not have been made by any other character in the book, this occurs because while characters like Rachel and Leah have changed throughout the book it has made them change about how they saw the Congo and made them acknowledge the problems they now face. Keeping Adah 's character mostly the same makes her a special character because while her family focuses on the problems they have such as no food while she is still observing the changes that go on because she can 't help due to her disease. Finally, Adah respect the writer of the poem because she doesn 't have much to do, but reading and talking about the poems bring her hope. The hope that she gets is about her managing to get to adulthood instead of dying young, this is why Adah explains why she likes William C. William. The reason she likes William C. is because he was a poet and a doctor and it brings Adah hope that if she could get to adulthood she would like to be a doctor-poet just like him and write poems about the people she meets.

On the other hand, The Doll’s House’s Kelveys had always been outcasts and rarely spoke to others. Since they didn’t rely on other people as much and were more introverted, being made into outcasts as a family was still hard but easier to adapt to. “... she scarcely ever spoke. She went through life holding on to Lil, with a piece of Lil’s skirt screwed up in her hand. Where Lil went, Our Else followed,” (Mansfield 204).

She has no one that loves her nor people she loves. Throughout both novels, the characters shift and are transformed into stronger people who become more self-aware. Jane and Mary’s transformation is signified by the different types symbols that the authors use to illustrate the challenges and the environment around them that helps them to explore more about themselves.

This assumption causes Adah to feel separated from her family but more aware of the critical world around her. The only understanding Adah receives is from the Congo itself, for the Congo’s perception on life also differs from other places due to its condition.

But here nobody stares at Adah except just a little because she’s white...”(5). Disability is seen common in the Congo and they do not dance around her disability but call her “benduka” (Crooked Walker).
Thus, even though it appears that Nel has strength of her own, the use of the word ‘seemed’ by Morrison shows that Nel may in fact be a weak person. Another instance in which Nel shows strength is after Jude leaves her.
