Noah and Jude hardly talked and their Father was always going out for walks, "clearing his head." The Mother's death was sudden and unexpected, as she was killed in a car accident, which was another big factor that caused the twins to lose touch, as neither of them were expecting it in any way. I know that if I experienced something so sudden and life changing like that, it would affect me dramatically, maybe even causing me to shut people out, like Jude and Noah did to most people. The guilt that ensued after the Mum's death also majorly affected the twins. Each thought that they had caused their Mums death in different ways, whether it was something they said or something they did the last time they saw her.
Her agonizing fall climaxes as Mrs. Hale realizes that “She was going to bury it (the canary) in that pretty box” (Glaspell 16), uncovering a motive for the killing of her husband. The respective protagonists were also driven into madness by their husbands and a lack of support from their friends. With the narrator of “The Yellow Wallpaper,” her husband as well as her husband’s sister were simply ignorant to her pleas for help. Minnie Wright, on the other hand, suffered from a mentally and physically abusive relationship and a lack of support from any friends at all. Despite the commonplace of men in powerful positions in each story, they are both considered feminist works as women are given a larger role and have better ideas than
Gatsby experiences all of those emotions in his attempt to be with Daisy and ultimately fails. One example of despair is when George Wilson pieces together his wife's suspicious behavior and discovers she's cheating on him, “In the sunlight his face was green”(Fitzgerald 129). The color green here shows how George Wilson is feeling when he discovers that his wife is cheating, he feels terribly. Another great example of green representing despair is when Myrtle is hit and killed on by a car. When the car was first described it was described by the color green.

He begins to panic even more, reaching a point where he screams at Rose to give him the keys. Rose suddenly breaks from her frantic search through her purse, pulling the keys out of them and giving Chris a sarcastic look, saying “You know I can’t do that.” The family attacks Chris and he then wakes up in the basement of the home, strapped to a chair. A video begins to play, and it explains the procedure that the Armitage’s are about to involuntary preform on Chris.
Many problems in Amir’s life are unwittingly caused by Hassan. For instance, in his childhood, Amir is constantly competing with Hassan for Baba’s attention and love. This leads to his lack of action when he witnesses Hassan’s rape. His regret for not interfering when it happened and hiding his misguided choice infect his mind even in his adult life six years later when he moves to America. With a few exceptions, people simultaneously embody evil and good in their life; Hosseini demonstrates this with Amir, who is convinced that he himself is evil, and spends most of the book struggling to redeem himself so he can finally realize he is not wicked after all.

Imagine a childhood being so traumatizing that it follows you into adulthood and affects your life decisions. In Sylvia Plath's poem “Daddy,” the speaker is talking about her father in an obsessive way. She is an adult looking back at her childhood and remembering all the bad things that her father has done in her life. Plath uses allusions to the historical events of the holocaust, show her victimization she felt, allusions to Greek Mythology, showing misplaced adoration from seeing him as a god and allusions to vampirism and voodoo dolls infer her vengefulness against her father. Vampirism and voodoo dolls are forms of pulp fiction and witchcraft.
In addition to Gilberts struggles there are also some diversity issues with Arnie’s mother, because of weight gain she has been laughed at and pointed at by the people in her town, that when she passed her children does not want to humiliated again so they burn the house down. I chose to focus on the lack of knowledge and empathy the people in the town had regarding Arnie and his disability, with consideration of the time era in which the movie was filmed. The way the sheriff handled Arnie while taking him into custody and also the doctor’s thoughts on Arnie’s life span. The diversity issues were present well in the film, I watched the movie when it first came out and I can say now that I have expanded my knowledge I am able to see the issues presented in the

Her disease was my disease. I would walk down the hallways and see people whispering and blatantly looking or pointing in my direction. Maybe they were talking about my mother being arrested last night, the number of times she had been thrown in jail and went to rehabilitation centers, or even how often she had been caught drunk driving. Fortunately, they did not know about the time I painfully watched my mother get tasered by the police. Watching her drop to the ground in my backyard like a shot deer, fracturing her wrist as she fell, was an event that will forever be ingrained in my memory.
Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51). Andy Evans, the senior who raped her, made her feel worthless. This situation is much like the one in the novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
