Slaves faced extreme brutality and Morrison focuses on rape and sexual assault as the most terrifying form of abuse. It is because of this abuse that Morrison’s characters are trapped in their pasts, unable to move on from the psychological damages that they have endured. “Morrison revises the conventional slave narrative by insisting on the primacy of sexual assault over other experiences of brutality” (Barnett 420). For telling Mrs. Garner what they had done, she was badly beaten by them, leaving a “chokecherry tree” (16) on her back. But that was not the overriding issue.
Our film, Psyche, is about a teenage girl, Deirdre, who is being physically and emotionally abused by a family friend, a man named Channing. Channing has been sexually assaulting Deirdre as well as causing her to have bruises on her body. Deirdre’s family does not help her in her situation, thus she feels that she has no way of escaping her trauma. This is made worse when she discovers that she is pregnant with Channing’s baby, and this drives her to believe suicide is her only option to be free of her pain. The editing theories that I am going to be using in my editing of the short film Psyche are as follows: From Ken Dancyger’s The Technique Of Film Video Editing: History, Theory and Practice:
Bev had been trained by Tom to not smoke cigarettes after he told her of his disdain for the nasty habit by punching her in the face.

Tom saw this as open defiance against him and it didn’t help that Bev immediately went to go back her bag to leave. Tom got his belt

Another instance of sexual abuse in The Glass Castle is when Walls’ Uncle Stanley touches Jeannette inappropriately. After telling her mother of this incident, Jeannette receives no sympathy. In fact, Rose Mary ends up giving her sorrow to Stanley, claiming that she feels bad for him because he is “lonely.” Rose Mary also states that sexual assault is a “crime of perception.” This dismissal and victim-shaming is prevalent in today’s world.
In Nora’s case, she subconsciously feels guilt for lying to Torvald so she works hard to be the perfect wife towards him. Her guilt does not affect her conscious until Torvald mentions hypocritical mothers. He states, “Nearly all young criminals have had mothers who lied.” [Ibsen 1136]. This guilt causes doubt in Nora’s mind as she begins to believe that she is no longer a perfect mother.

He would lie to Rachel, blaming her for all the things he had done, just to make her feel guilty, weak, and worthless. Just how Andy had made Melinda feel after he raped her. With this connection, I can better understand Melinda’s character through Rachel’s in The Girl on the Train, which I read and enjoyed before I read

Psychoanalytic Criticism may also be applied, as her actions and thought patterns were heavily influenced by her sickness, "Better in body perhaps--" I began, and stopped short, for he sat up straight and looked at me with such a stern, reproachful look that I could not say another word.

There is nothing so dangerous, so fascinating, to a temperament like yours. It is a false
