Father Flynn then goes and talks to Sister James separately to talk with her about the accusations. By talking to Sister James alone, Father Flynn not only broke the rules but also seems suspicious.
Emotional limitations cause discontent when our ailments control our decisions and hold us back. In Elizabeth Bishop’s poem, “The Man-Moth” and in Tennessee Williams's, The Glass Menagerie, the male protagonists in both stories face limitations. These emotional limitations drive The Glass Menagerie’s Tom to make irrational choices that were made when the dissatisfaction became too much to bear; this similar situation is found with “The Man-Moth’s” Man-Moth. The negative effect and discontent caused by emotional restriction found in Tom’s life are comparable to the hardships the Man-Moth faces as the result of his personal limitations. This causes these two men to live with discomfort, which leads them to become irrational and cloistered.

Over the course of his journey for self knowledge, Odysseus slowly becomes more and more aware of his fault in character.

In Poisonwood Bible and Things Fall Apart, the spearheading male characters succumb to doubts of their own validity despite being initially established as the ones with the most power. The urge to exercise this inherent power reflects an instability within the minds of the owners, creating a sort of deterrence so that outsiders don’t examine closer. If they do, they see brokenness, doubt, fear...all things that a man in power should not feel and should not have the right to feel. These perpetrators of cruelty show their weakness through their actions, as their character is not strong enough to be convincing based on values alone, and slowly chip away at them despite having the intentions of doing the opposite. Those on the receiving end, however, are the ones who benefit in the end, as they become aware of one’s true personality and realize that there is more possibility outside of the abuse.

However because of the denial of pursing football and the constant back and forth between him and Tory, he becomes very bitter just like his father.

Warren’s Profession, Shaw argues for a push towards equality for men in women which can be directly be seen within Frank’s role in the piece through the use of hyperbole and analogy to display the unfairness in the time period. Since the beginning of the play, tension has developed between Frank and Mrs. Warren given the fact that Mrs. Warren does not believe that he can provide a quality life for Vivie given his lack of skill paired with the fact that he essentially lives off of the church because of his father. Frank expresses his disdain of Mrs. Warren to Vivie by comparing her to an “old wretch” (Shaw 1812). Frank simply is appalled by not only the type of pioneering woman Mrs. Warren is but also that that she has a job that creates income for her and Vivie to live sustainably. Shaw crafts these nasty words to display how many men felt during the time period of a woman who chose to go out and make a life for herself.
