When, the harsh words Lovato received overthrew the love that was there, she became swept up in the whirlwind.

For the modern tragic hero, the downfall occurs when her situation with bullies spiteful words started to build up inside of her until she finally can not take it anymore. For instance, Demi’s tyrants would call her “fat”, she believed them, and would soon after develop unhealthy eating disorders, anorexia, bulimia, and so much more in the future.
Macomber. Margot Macomber presents Aristotle 's example of thinking your courageous because of your own emotions. She does many things throughout the story out of being bitter and angry towards her husband, Francis. She seems to also have a very poor and moral character because of her hateful actions, which makes it very hard for readers to like her or even think of her as a courageous person. Mrs. Macomber hated the fact that her husband was a coward, yet she seemed to be the same thing herself.
Jem gets in trouble by Mrs. Dubose and is forced to read to her as a consequence; Scout understands her brother’s begrudging behaviour and tries to help by withstanding the punishment with him even though she’s afraid of the old lady, “You don’t have to go with Jem, you know” (Lee 143). Scout understands why Jem was angered by Mrs. Dubose after she insulted their father since she was upset as well and decided to join her brother through his retribution. During the trial, Scout comes to realize how lonely and sad Mayella must be since she has no friends and has not future because of her father’s ways, “...it came to me that Mayella Ewell must have been the loneliest person in the world.” (256). After thinking about how isolated Mayella must be despite having a sizeable family, Scout compares the alcoholic’s daughter to the utmost introverted neighbour, Boo Radley. After an unsafe circumstance, Scout leads Boo to his house after he saving her and her brother; she stands on his porch and recounts the past 3 years from his perspective, “It was summertime, and two children scampered down the sidewalk toward a man approaching in the distance.” (374).
In “Making Sarah Cry” the bullies judge Sarah and the main character because they look and act different. In the poem it says .”And so he gladly joined their fun Of making Sarah cry But somewhere deep within his heart, He just never knew why” this is showing that he knew that he didn’t know why he was doing it and that he could stop any day but he didn’t. Another piece of evidence is that “The funny faces that she made And the way she’d stomp her feet Whenever they mocked the way she walked Or stutter when she’d speak” This is where he is pointing out when she would do things or naming everything she would do that would trigger the bullying. This is significant because he is thinking and he knows that he does it for no reason. Even though making fun of sarah was funny but he had some doubts to begin with.
Her friends and neighbors were angry at her because she had overstepped, given too much, offended by excess” (Morrison 163). The fear within the black community is still present because they know that they could be caught and returned to the south at any moment. The love that Baby Suggs offers the community is too overwhelming because it allows them to feel too much at once. This feeling of repulsion is significant because it emphasizes the betrayal and downfall that Baby Suggs experiences. While love is the only thing that Suggs has left, no one in the community is willing to return it or even pray for her.
In the second paragraph of the story the author states that she is suffering because she doesn't have the things she wants by saying, “She suffered endlessly, feeling herself born for every delicacy and luxury. She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains.” (Guy de Maupassant 2) “She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing. And these were the only things she loved;” (Guy de Maupassant 2) The author included this to let the readers know what kind of “Poverty” Matilde was living in. Mathilde doesn't seem to love her husband as much. He thinks different about her.
The relationship between the two was so bad that Connie had homicidal and suicidal thoughts, “Connie wished her mother were dead and she herself were dead and it would all be over. “(86) Some of the harassment from the mother seemed to come from jealousy. Oates shares some insight into the mother’s past and says she was pretty at one point in time “but now her looks were gone and that was why she was always after Connie.”(85) Her relationship with her father wasn’t much better. In fact, Oates tells us that he didn’t give much thought to anyone in the family because “he didn’t bother talking much to them.” (86) He worked a lot and when he came home, he wanted to eat supper, read the paper, and go to bed. Connie’s relationship with her sister, June, was probably the most stable, although it still wasn’t very healthy.
Even though her outward appearance is comparably peculiar with respect to the appearance of typical humans, one cannot basically imply that she is a monster. As ironic as it may sound, the protagonist’s family, along with the priest and the townspeople, are the genuine monsters in this literary piece. In this short story, it was clearly seen that the protagonist was physically and psychologically isolated from her community. This abhorrence initiated within the protagonist’s own household. Her family implied that something was wrong with her—that she used to be a lovely baby and that she was cursed (263).
Grendel’s self image changes throughout the story because the effect of some characters that is taken upon Grendel’s personality. Grendel’s mother had an effect on him through the story he had a soft spot when it came to his mother.

At first Josie hated her father Michael for what he did to her mother, but then ends up opening her heart to him and accepting him into the family. She also didn’t get along with her Nonna that well at the start, but after realizing what her Nonna went through when she was her age, Josie and her Nonna started to see eye to eye. The reason Josie didn’t get along with Katia (Nonna) that well was because of the way she treated Josie’s mother. If Christina (Josie’s mother) or Josie ever did or wanted to do something Katia will always say “people will talk” and that really annoyed both of them. Josie’s relationship with her mother is a love hate relationship, one minute they love each other to bits and the next they’ll be screaming and throwing stuff at each other.
