72, l. 9) with father referring to his uncle. Anything that Hamlet did against his uncle his mother took that as an attack on her as well. This was her new husband after all and whatever he felt she felt with him. This attack was a way of him hurting his mother but in more of an indirect way. Even though it was not directly against her, it still hurt her and that was still against the wishes of the ghost of his father.
Shockingly, she walks downstairs after fleeing from her friends’ horrible news, and her husband walks in the door. As he walks in, Josephine screams and falls down dead; the happiness that she had felt was too much for her weak heart. Likewise, “A Rose for Emily,” written by William Faulkner, opens on a woman, Emily Grierson, except this time the woman is already dead. The story is told from the perspective of the townspeople, a collective “we.” They recount when she was exempted from her taxes, and then when she refused to pay them after the death of the person who remitted her. Then, the townspeople go back further to a time when Emily’s house had a stench so foul, a judge was consulted about what to do; it was decided that a few townspeople would stealthily sprinkle lime about her property in order to not confront her and seem discourteous.
He uses the same underlying temperament with Desiree, “her face the picture of fright… presently her husband enter[s] the room”, showing his ability to frighten those that love him most (5). Although, his cruelest way to punish Desiree was through cold indifference, not even willing himself to look at her. “When he spoke to her, it was with avert[ing] eyes,” because of the grave injustice she has unconsciously done to him and his name. The shame that Armand impresses upon Desiree is what brings her to take their baby into the bayou and never come
Since there were so many “young men her father had driven away,” it can be inferred that Emily’s father was a very unwelcoming man who did not believe any male was good enough to meet the Grierson standards (Faulkner 55). As stated by Victor Strandberg, “driving away her suitors so as to keep her housekeeping services for himself, Emily 's father has ruined her chances for a normal life” (par. 3). After the death of Mr. Grierson, all that Emily had left was herself and the house because of the seclusion her father created. However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her.
Opening Sentences… Widely considered her most celebrated book of poems, the posthumous Ariel exposes Plath’s twisted physiological torment. Perhaps its most well known work, “Lady Lazarus” unambiguously examines suicide and death. It cloaks its reader in the solitude that weighs so heavily on its author. In this poem, Plath alludes to Lazarus, a man who Jesus resurrects from the dead. Plath is in fact the female foil to this biblical figure, and through the chaos and loneliness her husband, father, and friends cultivate, she is ultimately driven to suicide.
Emily tries to hold on to old opportunity granted to her family in more wealthiest times. Meanwhile, the town around her develop and changes. Falkner presents Emily as a symbol of a dying culture, namely the medieval South. Before the Civil War, the South was
Tennessee Williams opens Orpheus Descending Depicting Lady Torrance in a miserable marriage to a horrible husband who is on his death-bed.

Although, her husband never physically abused her, she has been mentally abused by the killing of her father which has frightened her from leaving her husband. A young man by the name of Val enters in to the small southern town. Williams gives a jazzy vibe of a guy that 's been on a rough past but seems to want to turn his life around.
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls is a perfect example of inherently good people making poor choices and hurting others because of the things that have impacted them. From the start of the book, readers learn about the neglect and behavior of the alcoholic father, Rex. Some of his behavior is explained when the family stays with Rex’s mother, Erma, in his hometown of Welch. You quickly learn how cold Erma is, and how creepy she is. When the parents leave the children with Erma, she sexually assaults Jeanette 's brother Brian.
Another way familial corruption is caused by the absence of fathers is portrayed by Shakespeare and Williams is through the characterization of the family members left behind. In The Glass Menagerie, Amanda Wingfield lives in the shadow of her past and is obsessed with the idea of gentlemen callers for her daughter. This concern for her daughter is rooted more in Amanda’s own interest, however, and has a detrimental effect on their relationship. “Once we analyse how Amanda manipulates maternity, a factor more fundamental than nostalgia will begin to emerge. This principle is self-consciousness.” (Levy).
"Ghost" emphasis her child and how he is gone and it hasn 't hit her yet. Death in war is such a recurring scene in the poems, like "war photographer", which is described to be in war and also describes the death of men, women and children in war, "spools of suffering set out in ordered rows", ordered rows means the graves of humans that lost their lives in war, also "blood stained into foreign dust" which is a metaphor to describe the impact this war and all the other wars affect these countries and their people. "Mother in a refugee camp" also links to death in war, which affected her personally by the death of her son, because of their presence in a refugee camp; we must assume that they were displaced and that what might have caused the death of her only
