Her high school “hookup”, Eddie Oakley, is mostly an extension of her already existing feelings of isolation. Their relationship begins as a way for Rose to cope with her loneliness, after her ability destroys most of her close relationships with people (Bender 156). He continues to be her stress release but has no understanding of her emotions, calling her the “tank” because of her stoicism. There is no power dynamic here. Rather, they both use each other exclusively for their own personal gain (Bender 132).
The main character, Ethan, starts to like someone else, despite him already being married. Although he starts to have such thoughts, his intentions are understandable considering that he was never in love with his wife, Zeena. In Edith Wharton 's Ethan Frome, Ethan doesn 't come out as an admirable person because he can 't face his problems, and he always tries to run away from them. Ethan has never faced the problems between him and Zeena, and neither has he ever confronted his feelings to Mattie. Ethan doesn 't understand that running away from problems isn 't going to make them disappear.
She uses it to get what she wants which is why she tricks the reader sto think that she’s still in love with him when in reality it’s he’s money, like how she cried into Gatsby’s beautiful shirts (Fitzgerald 92). Also since Tom is always running off with another girl each night, Daisy may feel alone and in need for attention which is why she keeps sending mixed signals to Jay Gatsby in the novel. Since Daisy never admitted to Tom at the hotel about never loving him, this shows Daisy’s true colors, but Gatsby was already too deep to realize the mistakes he was making. So, that is why Daisy never attended Jay’s funeral because her true colors bursted, was afraid to ruin her reputation, and Gatsby gone means no more

In the novel Ethan Frome by Edith Wharton, the main character, Ethan, is trapped in an unsatisfying life. He falls in love with his wife’s cousin and that leads to a depressing ending for everyone. But I understand that Edith Wharton had a tough time with marriage and love, and that reflects in her writing. There are countless situations that can keep two people from being together, every romance movie ever made has proven that fact and it is impossible to recount all the obstacles fictional people must face. However, the most popular are: a class difference, financial struggle, a third party (ie: love triangle), or what I like to call the Spider-Man/Mary Jane conflict, where the hero walks away from the girl because he believes their relationship would make her a target for supervillains.

Proctor then states that there was never a relationship to begin with and she should let go of her hopes. Abigail yells in tears at Proctor stating that he has loved her and convinced her that they were in love. She also states that it is impossible to give up her love for him and that she will accept Proctor no matter what sin he commits. This scene from The Crucible reveals how the characters judge one another by their past relationships and interactions to bring out the quality of arrogance.
