The narrator points out that Louise knows she will cry again for him when she sees his funeral, remembering his “kind, tender hands...the face that had never looked save with love upon her” (Chopin). Those sentiments show that her husband was not a cruel man but a kind one. With that information, it is still noted that “she had loved him—sometimes. Often she had not” (Chopin) which could mean her marriage was of convenience and not a choice. Even though this relationship may have been amicable Louise still struggles with this new emotion, that of

There was once a picture that portrayed women as insignificant. Over time, female artists have been painting over this view and creating their own image. An image that has proven that women have the ability to excel in applying their creative abilities in a positive way.

"Kahlo painted herself as the quietly suffering female. In every possible sense, the mass-culture Kahlo embodies that now-poisonous term: victim-hood. She was the victim of patriarchal culture, victim of an unfaithful husband, and simply the victim of a horrific accident. But that's probably one reason why she's so popular.” "She dramatized the pain in her paintings, while carefully cultivating a self-image as a 'heroic sufferer.'" (Mencimer, 2002) 2.

Capote uses this lyric because it foreshadows the death of Perry. Otto and Perry conclude the song by asking “won’t you give me flowers while I’m living” (Capote 117). This lyric is essential because the “lilies” and the “flowers” symbolize mercy.

Specifically, in “The Painted Door” Ann’s isolation leads to an adultery and a death of a loved one. When Steven comes to keep Ann company, her unsatisfied feelings for John, cause her to show interest in Steven, leading to an affair. While John is not present in Ann’s life, she turns to Steven when left alone: “She [is] John’s wife -she [knows]- but also she [knows] that Steven standing here was different from John” (Ross 297). Evidently, isolation causes Ann to make wrong decisions.
Nurse Ratched took a chance on his life to perform this which disrupted his mental thought process. In the end of the novel Bromdon took a chance just like Nurse Ratched and smothers McMurphy and ends his life. “As she studies the pictures, she breaks down from time to time, weeping as only a mother who has outlived a child can weep, betraying a sense of loss so huge and irreparable that the mind balks at taking its measure. Such bereavement, witnessed at close range, makes even the most eloquent apologia for high-risk activities ring fatuous and hollow. ( 132)”.
