You mustn’t think that,” I didn’t believe him,” (page 138). If Sal didn’t believe her father 's words then she thinks she caused her mothers miscarriage and she is probably upset about this.

Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.

Moreover, it is later revealed that” She [Betty] said the pieces had simply come away in her hand, but that was hardly to be believed” (pg. 279). The vase had been mended by Cecilia years ago, hence, it was bound to, “come away,” later. The mended vase collapsed just like Robbie and Cecilia’s love story as, “the pieces had simply come away in her [Betty’s] hand.” Briony reveals they both died in war through the epilogue of the novel which supports that the shattered vase represented Robbie and Cecilia’s broken relationship. Atonement also indicates the love Briony would never be able to maintain later in her life through the symbolism of the injured French soldier, Luc.

When she was very young, she got smallpox. This disease left her skin covered in scars- scars that she hated and wished she had never gotten. The disease also made her partially blind, and that is where she got the name Tekakwitha(meaning “she who bumps into things”).

In a way, her death had torn her away from the clutches of self-condemnation she had put herself in ever since the incident with Tom
