She is so out of control that she doesn’t even take care of her own self at times. When Montag was sick, she didn’t sincerely care. He asked her for help by ringing him some medicine and turning down the parlor, but that was the point she cared for them more than him, so she did not turn them down. She is only with society and does not want to change by any means. She doesn’t even realize how to be different from everyone
She replied with, “ I am careful… well other people are… They’ll keep out of my way … it takes two to make an accident.” (Fitzgerald 58) it shows how Jordan believes that her driving should only matter to her and it's no-one else’s business . Also, Jordan shows her self-centered attitude when Daisy killed Myrtle, it did not bother her and she continued on her with her daily life. Jordan being self-centered has caused her to become heartless and earn her fame and wealth
After leaving Logan and marrying Joe, she was very happy and seemed to be in love but soon after becomes a “trophy wife” and was just going through the motions of marriage. “No matter what Jody did, she said nothing. She had learned how to talk some and leave some… She got nothing from Jody except what money could buy, and she was giving away what she didn’t value”(Huston, 76). At this point Janie had fully accepted the fact that she wasn’t going to have love in her marriage, and didn’t really care. At this point Janie’s character starts to develope into a more independent woman who cared less about what he husband wanted and more about what she wanted.
She is not considered important enough to have her own name in the novel, and throughout the novel she is known as Curley’s wife (Mumford, 2013). Furthermore, unlike Lady Macbeth, Curley’s wife has no power over her husband instead she is scared of him. Curley’s wife is not respected by the men on the ranch and is considered to be someone who creates trouble. In contrast to this, Lady Macbeth is respected by men in her kingdom and no one tries to disrespect her. Since Curley’s wife does not get attention from anywhere, she tries to seek it from the only person who will listen to her and that is Lennie.
2) So, Mathilde would rather not be around or visit her good friend because when she comes home she feels sorry for herself for she does not have all the things her friend does. When she does this, she is not only affecting herself, she is affecting her husband, and her friend.

She makes multiple mistakes throughout the story, yet she blames them on other people.
Lomia says this to her son Cape after he begs her to come back and live with he and his father, following it up with a comment on her nightmares of being a widow. Disregarding the state of her husband’s health, she cares only about how she will be regarded when she becomes a widow, and so, the only way to save herself is simply to not come back. This showcases the way Lomia consistently puts herself before others, caring only for her own feelings. Perhaps, she is more afraid of the feelings that will come with losing her husband than she is of her status as widow, therefore avoiding the situation in its entirety seems to be the only viable option. Later, in the same conversation, Lomia admits to Cape that she does not feel things; “I want to, I try to feel things -- I hate it in here, in this -- thick -- pitch -- everything I do, I do to get OUT (Thompson, pg.
When Curley's wife tries to talk to Lennie he refuses to speak to her, and she says “‘Why can’t I talk to you? I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely’”(Steinbeck 86). Everybody on the ranch sees Curley’s wife as “jail bait” or bad news because she is a woman. Curley is overly protective of his wife, which causes his wife to be lonely because no one will talk to her because she is “bad news”.
From the beginning of the story to the end Nea is pigheaded and doesn’t think about the consequences of her actions. Nea misconceives Sourdi’s unavailability for being in danger and unhappiness in her marriage when in actuality she’s happy and expecting another child. Sourdi is a dynamic character because she shows growth throughout the story. Though subtle, Sourdi shows courage when she marries her much older husband not knowing what to expect, but hoping he can provide a more satisfying life. She becomes independent, no longer leaning on the support of her relatives and starts a family of her own.
Notably, Steinbeck also isolates Curley 's wife from everyone on the ranch because she has to stay at home while everyone is out working and Curly does not want his wife to talk to anybody except for him, but since he is always working, it pressures her to talk to others and be rebellionent since she gets lonely by herself. “I never get to talk to nobody. I get awful lonely” (Pg 85). “I get lonely, you can talk to people, but I can 't talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad.
This further emphasizes how women are not submissive to male, but are forced by them to be obedient. On the other hand, the play Othello demonstrates how females are obedient to male, despite their maltreatment. Desdemona craves for Othello’s affection and approval, remaining fiercely loyal to him without the constant abuse like Rasheed in A Thousand Splendid Suns.
