Jackson builds up suspense in the story

The earliest of his internal conflicts is when his mother married his uncle, Claudius, in such a short window of time after his father’s death. He expresses his feeling in his “heart, for I must hold my tongue” (1.2.160). This is an important quote because it is important to understand because it allows to the reader to see that Hamlet cannot speak to anyone about how he feels. As an effect to his decision of not speaking out, this allowed for rage and discomfort to grow inside him which will be one of the main reasons as to why he is legitimately going insane. With these various stressors in his life, it gives more evidence and reasoning to why he often experienced constant signs of depression and suicidal thoughts.
Authors frequently utilize antagonizing characters to drive and enhance the plot and meaning behind the story. In Of Mice and Men, John Steinbeck explains the story of two lovable main characters and their struggles to achieve their own unattainable American Dream to own property and “live off the fatta the lan’” (14). In the story, the supposed side character and antagonist, Curley’s wife, becomes the obstacle between the main characters and their American dream, ignoring her ambitions. Accidentally murdering Curley’s wife, Lennie ruins any hope of achieving his goals while creating the turning point in the story. However, through the development of Curley’s wife as a character, Steinbeck demonstrates the theme of loneliness and its deadly qualities through her struggles in life and death.
Instead of being the good teenager who always says yes or no ma’am, he went against Capulet, which didn’t do much good for him because Capulet still won. This is isn’t the only example of Tybalt or the other characters showing their rebellious side against their parents or higher authority. As the story moves along, the more the theme of rebellion shows through. The reader learns from early on in the story that there is a feud between two families, the Montagues and the Capulet’s. The two main characters, Romeo and Juliet, are from different sides of the feud, but suddenly fall in love.

I could relate to a friend in the story, such as Rhonda, that has an insight, but can’t do anything but support her friend. In this story, Draper develops one storyline, with the central conflict being that Keisha has to get over the grief of her ex, but she falls out of love to fall back in, with a grown man, that over wins her heart and persuades her to defy her parents. Andy killing himself for guilt, Keisha looking for love, and her dealing with unstable feelings by falling for Coach Hathaway are three critical events that developed the storyline. Whenever Keisha was going through this, commonsense tells me that she wanted nothing but love. When the coach “happened” to be in the same places as the protagonist.
It seems to be that her motivation is her son, as she wishes him and herself safety. However, she doesn’t know the reason of why somebody is out for her husband. What are your character’s emotions in this scene? Do they change at all? Lady Macduff’s emotions change from confused to scared for her own life.
She simultaneously loves and resents her children because, while she is their mother, she feels that they have taken away her freedom and self-purpose. As Edna journeys in her awakening, she strives to find meaning for herself as Edna, not her children's mother. To prove she is more than just a mother, she distances herself from normal motherly responsibilities. “He reproached his wife with her inattention, her habitual neglect of the children. If it was not a mother's place to look after children, whose on earth was it?”(Chopin, 15) Edna's neglect of her children stems from others expectations for her to submit to and look after her
As her cousin begins to slander Atticus, Scout loses her temper and, despite not understanding the boy, defends Atticus without considering any facts. Even lack of evidence will not deter what she believes in her young spirit. Atticus Finch considers determination as a part of life, not a choice. His son’s determination, however, comes from passion to please his dad. For Scout determination comes naturally in her fight for what she believes.
In both plays, the theme of money creates turmoil in each character’s pursuit of happiness. Although money is important, the character eventually realizes that being a family is the main source of happiness. In “A Doll House” money is constantly on each of the character’s minds. Krogstad blackmails Nora because of her forgery scheme to help her husband. The idea of blackmail comes to mind because Nora was being forced to obey Krogstad demand of keeping his job.
The conflict is probably the most important of what we have discussed so far. In “The Story of an Hour” the conflict is based on Mrs. Mallard and herself. She is fighting against the fact to be joyful about her husband’s death because she can be free; she is trying to mourn for her husband, “She was beginning to recognize this thing that was approaching to possess her, and she was striving to beat it back with her will--as powerless as her two white slender hands would have been.” (Chopin, paragraph 10, sentences 1-3). Despite that, her joy eventually consumes her, when Mr. Mallard comes home, she dies for lack of joy, or more accurately, she dies of shock, her heart is just too weak to sustain so much excitement at once. In “The Interloper” the conflict is between Ulrich and George, “The two enemies stood glaring at one another for a long silent moment.
