Enda’s mindset is very much alike that of many women today. She’s does not see herself as, “one of Mr. Pontellier’s possessions to dispose of or not, [she] give herself as she chose (Chopin 36).” During the era in which this was written the statement quoted was very strange to hear from the mouth of a woman. The reason the reader can infer this is because of other characters in novel such as Adele and Mademoiselle Reiz. Along with the reactions these characters are given from a public stand point. The two friends of Enda each display a very different type of woman for the reader to evaluate, and compare Enda too.
Kira accepted this job since it was an honor to even touch the Singer’s Robe, and she also did it since it became her only way to survive. When Kira would weave, she would use colors for the Robe, which would put emphasis on the stories that the Robe withheld. Colors were an essential part, and Kira learned how to make every single one except blue, which was heard to be extremely rare. Not only was it hard to find, but Kira didn’t learn the recipe to create blue which was a very important color. Later in the story, she received blue from a stranger, who started to unfold the truth.
She also refers to her family as “normal”, but fails to do this for herself in order to strengthen how misplaced she feels in comparison to them. While touching on the stark contrast of Sebold’s presence compared to those around her, she also highlights the obvious lack of understanding and empathy her peers carry for her situation. After she is visited by a neighbor, Sebold recounts, “At one point she said, ‘What happened to me is nothing like what happened to you. You’re young and beautiful. No one’s interested in me that way.’” (68).
The poem, Dirge Without Music, by Edna St. Vincent Millay, is expressing that a loss of a loved one can be difficult to overcome. In this poem, the author tends to repeat the same phrase. “I am not resigned” (Millay 1.1). According to the google dictionary being resigned means “Having accepted something unpleasant that one cannot do anything about.” The narrator is vocalizing that they have not accepted what has happened to their loved one. With this repetition, the author is trying to cement the idea into the readers mind that the narrator still hasn’t gotten over this loss.
In the following passage from the novel We Were the Mulvaneys, Joyce Carol Oates laments that even though most everything in one’s surrounding is dying, not everyone has managed to find the adequate amount of maturity to accept the fact that they are not immortal, even though the idea of death is difficult to come to terms with. Oates conveys this universal idea and characterizes the narrator through the usage of a depressing tone and dismal imagery. The tone set in the passage is fairly dark and depressing. An “eleven or maybe twelve,” year old child should not be fixated on the idea that “every heart beat is past and gone.” Children should be enjoying life and dreaming of the future. Kids should be happy.

This is not true because Conrad is raising some gender biases by portraying women as an inferior character and minor character. He rarely mentions any woman character in his novel, however the role given to them is insignificant. For example, in this novel Marlow’s aunt is referred to as a caricature. Especially when Marlow says, “They live in the world of their own, and there had never been anything like it, and never can be” (Conrad, 2015, p.22).It shows us Conrad’s strong believe in women’s inferiority. The words such as “world of their own”, is more like women’s lack of contribution towards practical world and women lost in their fantasy.
