In my novel, “Uglies” the protagonist is Tally. Near the beginning of the story she shares her desperate wants of being a pretty, and even more so because she feels all alone without her best friend. She even breaks one of the most important rules, which is to stay inside Uglyville, but she can’t help her desire to see Peris again. Fortunately she didn’t get caught The antagonists in my novel, is a group called Special Circumstances. In the dystopia, they are the ones that perform the surgeries on the uglies on their 16th birthday.
Tally, an almost 16 year old girl is given the choice to have something that she has always wanted but will she take it at, even if its at her friends expense. Uglies by Scott Westerfeld demonstrates that sometimes you betray and lie to the ones that care and trust you to get what you desire most. In the beginning of the book Tally says this to her friend Shay, “ You’re the one who’s running away” (p.86) The author is showing that Tally is agitated that Shay has decided to run away from her problems instead of confronting them. This shows betrayal because Shay is betraying Tally, who trusted her to do the right thing, by running away and leaving her alone. Tally is feeling betrayed and abandoned by Shay especially since she trusted her and
Even if that means killing her own baby she would do it. She then states “Pronounce it for me ,sir, to all our friends, For my heart speaks they are welcome”(III.IV.7-8).

n the play Medea by Euripides we are presented with a woman who is about to go into exile with her two children. Her husband has left her for another and now Medea wants revenge. She does this by way of gifts and their destructiveness is conveyed through the fact that she destroys everything that ties her to Jason except Jason himself. The biggest sacrifice Medea had to make was killing her children. She knew that she would not be able to win Gluace over on her side if she was to present the gifts, but her children would be much more appealing as they are a symbol of a new relationship due to their inability of causing harm.
The fear for his safety not only physically isolated him, but emotionally scarred him. The monster is even “terrified” of his own reflection, suggesting there is no hope of acceptance from humankind since he cannot even accept himself (Shelley 121). The monster later comments that he was “drivest from joy for no misdeed” (Shelley 105). People were too quick to judge the monster’s image instead of

To add on, Antigone feels she has no free will as “the curse arising from a mother’s marriage bed” (361) seals her fate. She purposely defies Creon’s word, but her punishment was a harsh, unmerited death as the God’s need to each Creon a lesson. Antigone is not fully responsible for her fate. She just happens to be under the ruling of a bad King that stops her from what she thinks is most important in life; burying her brother. As shown, the themes of the play develop just as the characters reveal their true intentions.

Consequently, Johnny who ‘was as committed to the things that mattered to him as anyone could possibly be’ (p211) transformed into a victim of selfish ambition when his commitment towards recuperating
This short story is an embellishment to illustrate the impact of the Rest Cure. “The story is not intended to drive people crazy, but to save people from being driven crazy, and it worked,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman declared (Siegel, 2008). Similar to Lauren Hale, countless women are able to resonate with Gilman and “The Yellow Wallpaper” (2008). Lauren Hale explains being able to identify with the main character due to her own journey of motherhood and insanity thereafter. Charlotte Perkins Gilman successfully incorporated a realistic insanity into the main character of the short story as well as exposing the mental health diagnoses and cures for the 19th century.
