They found Homer lying in the bed decayed. Everyone then realizes that was the awful smell coming from house. If there was a missing person now, the people in the town would have been more suspicious and notified the police.

After frightening Flora away from Bly, who was accompanied by Mrs. Grose, the governess is left alone with the young boy Miles, who has been causing a lot of mischief around the home. In the middle of their conversation, the governess sees Quint peering through the windows of the house, yet Miles does not see him (116). The governess becomes enraged, leading Miles to ask “Is she here?”, which arguably is his moment of admittance and recognition of Miss Jessel’s ghostly presence (122). The governess replies that it is not Miss Jessel but instead the “coward horror”, causing Miles to look in the direction of Quint (122). This scene escalates quickly and is left very vague, allowing for different interpretations of who they are referring to in their conversation.
In a way, Shakespeare is implying that when women are allowed to make their own decisions and do what they want, it never results in anything beneficial. Gertrude chose her new king and in the process contributed immensely to the downfall of her son, Hamlet. On the other hand, Ophelia, Hamlet’s lover, is the perfect model for a young lady in those days. When her father advises her to steer clear of Hamlet, she immediately obeys him. She does what she is told, not questioning why, but accepting that that is the way that things are to be.
Though the men believe her to be the murderer, the women are trying their best to hide the evidence that will prove it. The mess of a kitchen, the poorly sewn quilt, and the dead bird make a solid case to convict Mrs. Wright for her husband's death, but the men are oblivious
Thus, unlike the characters around her, such as the sneaky minister or the greedy lovers, Hester is the one character who lives by reality instead of appearance. The best example of this is her lifestyle before and after she is shunned. Before her exile, Hester recognizes the unjust nature of the laws around her. She refuses to follow them and present a façade of perfection and happiness. When Dimmesdale demands that she name her baby’s father and promises that her sentence will be lightened as a reward, Hester steadfastly refuses (Hawthorne, 1850).
Another reason why Scout’s saviour is Atticus is related with her acknowledgement over the superficiality and restrictions of being a Southern female, for example when Mrs. Dubose tells Scout: “You should be in a dress and camisole, young lady! You 'll grow up waiting on tables if somebody doesn 't change your ways ...” (page 135; To Kill a Mockingbird). Meaning that if Scout does not ‘woman’ up she will forever be rejected.This quote is one of many illustrations in the novel where our narrator communicates to us Lee 's criticism of Southern women and their ignorance concerning gender roles. Even Atticus the man how abides by no social conventions, ridicules the women 's attitudes. There are multiple examples of this; one were he tells Alexandra that he prefers “Southern womanhood as much as anybody, but not for preserving polite fiction at the expense of human life” (page 196; To Kill a Mockingbird).
Gileadean laws were only intact because of the Aunts’ enforcement. “But whose fault was it? Aunt Helena says, holding up one plump finger.

You wasn’t no good. You ain’t no good now, you lousy tart” (95). In other words, Curley 's wife does not even have to be alive to cause trouble, and her death alone exhibits enough power to create distress. In addition, Candy is implying that Curley’s wife has had the ability to cause trouble all along. For example, George saw that the first time Lennie was introduced to Curley’s wife he immediately fell under her spell, which caused George to continue to warn Lennie about her since her knew what she was capable of.
