Upon being left by her husband during a decade-long journey, Penelope’s depressed character, like Hecuba’s character, accentuates the misery of women during that time. Once stripped of the only source of power and happiness they had—men in society—women were deemed miserable, useless, and awful in society. Penelope spent years waiting for Odysseus, and the audience watches as a beautiful, popular woman, weeps over her missing husband and lives a long, melancholy life. Penelope grows impatient and stagnantly miserable; she begins to wish for death, for life was not worth living without her husband in her life. She begs, “How I wish chaste Artemis would give me a death so soft and now I would not go on in my heart, grieving all my life and longing for love of a husband excellent in every virtue.

In like manner, Frida’s suffering throughout her life had a huge impact on her long term career. Also, “By distilling and depicting the emotions surrounding her traumatic accident and subsequent medical complications, Kahlo painted experiences that people could recognize and relate to—feeling pain, being hospitalized, and fearing isolation.” (Pain and the Paintbrush: The Life and Art of Frida Kahlo.) Moreover, her artistic output was dominated by self-portraits that often showed her suffering. This was due to Kahlo’s poor health, from illnesses like the poliomyelitis virus, which weakened and deformed her body, and chronic pain, which inevitably became prominent themes in her artwork.

Her work displays signs of overwhelming emotion; one can’t help but assume that the vivid language resembles true personal references. There were many repeated themes throughout the collection that suggested how her mental stability exposed to this imagination of her poetry, led to her suicide. It came to terms just how fragile Plath was and the depression that overcame her was the push that led to the devastating suicide during the harsh winter of 1963.

Throughout the first part of the play, Medea is suffering and crying about how hopeless she is after Jason has abandoned her. She is hysterical at times and at one-point wishes for her own death. According to the Nurse, her suffering is the consequence of being too passionately in love with Jason.

In response to these dreadful experiences, Plath begins to feel worthless and doubt herself as a writer and person. Plath’s childhood traumas and childhood relationships deeply impact her work as well as her life.

In Not Just a Death, a System Failure, author Barbara Morgan criticized the US health care system’s lack of palliative care, painful treatments, and unwillingness to face the end-of-life decision, which leads to many patients suffering the last part of their lives in discomfort. The author centers her argument on the anecdote about the dying of her late mother, who spent several months in the discomfort of intensive care until the time of her death. Moran’s point is one part valid since the treatments for serious diseases are dangerous, painful, and many times only focus on prolonging life rather than improving life. However, she neglected the fact that these treatments are optional, and patients are always open to spending the last part of their life away from the hospital. Treatments for serious diseases are known to have many side effects that deteriorate patents’ health.

Additionally, Adelina’s unusually high dependence on others had herself hit her ultimate low, causing her to internally “[spiral] downward, falling to a place where [she] can no longer pull [herself ]back up,” when discovering that the ones she loved didn’t reciprocate the same feelings. With that being said, Adelina’s search for justice could be represented as a search of finding oneself, albeit a long and dangerous
