“Gaslighting” is a term to describe the gradual manipulation and abuse used to make another person feel as though they are going crazy. While it is inherently manipulative, it still can often go unnoticed to both parties, and the vicious cycle causes the victim to actually go crazy. The term originally applied this to a husband and wife relationship, which is the main relationship seen within “The Yellow Wallpaper.” The narrator in this is seen to be going crazy throughout the story, and the husband is seen as another victim trying his best to help her. Gilman uses their relationship and dialogue throughout the plot to showcase the consequences of gaslighting, and warn women of this “hidden” form of abuse. Gaslighting literally describes a movie in which the husband slowly dims the gaslight more and more, and convinces the wife that it is all in her imagination when she starts to notice.

First of all, at the very beginning, Keaton lost his patience with the critic and speak to her in an unsurprisingly insulting way to her. The way he said it, expressed how often he uses profanity. He said it with a lot of pauses, which enhanced the drama the viewer could feel while he carve his own tomb. But as the critic respond to him, the sense of his doom starts to be felt, particularly when she says ‘I’m gonna kill your play’ while putting a flower in his hand. With the way he throws the flower, it can be sensed that he wants not to care about that threat.

Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51). Andy Evans, the senior who raped her, made her feel worthless. This situation is much like the one in the novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.

Overall, A Streetcar Named Desire is showing the downfalls of not expressing sexuality while doing the rare thing of showcasing sexuality in the context of a society that dismissed and condemned it. Tennessee Williams was a gay man who knew the frustration of living in a time period that demanded his sexuality be repressed. Through the play, he communicates how high a price individuals had to pay for expressing their desires. In Blanche’s case, her expression of sexuality led to her being committed to a mental institute, and in Allen Grey’s case death. Despite this Williams also imparts to his audience the negative impacts of disguising one 's sexuality behind the guise of what is considered normal and proper.
Misogyny remains a key feature in Mailer’s writings with the Naked and the dead being no exception, portraying women as little more than sexual objects to fulfil male desire, being placed at the bottom of gender structure. It was not uncommon for men to mistrust their wives while they were away fighting and Mailer presents this fear the men maintain through Brown as he explains what his actions would be if he found out his wife had been cheating on him, claiming to beat her and throw he out, viewing women as sexual objects which are disposable and yet it is the fear that the males possess of this occurring which leads them to respond like this, women maintain an unusual sense of power within a largely patriarchal society. Later, in the Chorus
This is an example of her usual thought process; people are evil based on superficial things like rumours, judging people without even speaking to them. She perceives everything he does as harmful or furtive; “‘Hee hee,” said Mr. Raymond, evidently taking delight in corrupting a child” (267). Even though all Mr. Raymond did was laugh, she takes it as something evil and conniving. When she learns that it is not whisky that he drinks, but coke, her thoughts about him begin to be mixed. This is her first time perceiving someone as neither 100 percent good or bad.
