(Gilgamesh,93).

Rose Maxson’s actions in the play Fences involving undivided faithfulness with her husband Troy had proves to be truthful and straight from the heart. Even after she found out that her husband whom she’s been with for over eighteen years, was in an affair with another woman.

This clearly states to the readers how Troy feels about Cory and the fence symbolizes their separation and division of their relationship. I believe the fence does more harm than good because it ruins relationships and love for one
If I had been caught, and something had happened to Liesel, Hans or Rosa, I don 't know what I would have done. I left my poor mother at home so I could seek safety but putting another family in danger to save my life was never my intention. When the inspector came today, I came to the terrifying realisation that everywhere I go, danger follows. I can’t bear the guilt of putting their lives at risk any longer. Although I must stay put with the Hubermann’s for now, I can definitely see myself leaving Himmel Street in the near future to secure Liesel, Rosa and Hans’ safety.
