“They surged about her, caught her up & bore her, protesting, and then pleading… back into a tunnel, a room, a closet, where they slammed & locked the door & saw it tremble from her beating & throwing herself against it… Then smiling they turned and went out & back down the tunnel, just as the teacher arrived.” (pg. 3) They don’t care what she says & they do it behind the teachers back. Therefore, she can’t do anything about it because she doesn’t know about it. The suspense at this point is tremendous. We don’t know if they will take her out of the closet in time or not to see the

These two quotes show that they were regularly hurting her, both physically and mentally. So, when they decided to let her out of the closet it was a contradiction of their past behavior. Another contradiction in the short story was when the children were enjoying and reveling in the Sun, this was a contradiction because before, the children thought the Sun was a joke. Evidence that shows this is “‘Well, don’t wait around here!’ cried the boy savagely. ‘You won’t see nothing!’ .
When Holden felt really alone, he gave Sally a buzz and they went on a date. He said “I didn't much want to see it, but I knew old Sally, the queen of the phonies, would start drooling all over the place when I told her I had tickets for that, because the Lunts were in it and all.” (116, Sallinger) for Sally. For Holden “being phony” is really poor thing. If he uses word “phony” for his date, it means he really doesn’t like her and doesn’t want to go on a date with her. He just wanted to use her for forget his loneliness.

Fiona thought, looking at her husband as he slumbered without a care in the world. She didn 't mean what she said, but when something frightened you, good manners took a turn and jumped out the window: Especially, when you could hear something outside making a racket like sandpaper on a dry surface. With no choice, but to see what it might be, Fiona propped herself up and looked over to the window. At first, she didn 't see anything, but as her eyes adjusted, becoming used to the darkness in the bedroom. She saw what looked like a silhouette shape hovering outside.
The children are dreading the change that is coming. They might not seem dreadful, and instead excited, but dread and excitement can go hand in hand, and be hard emotions to tell the difference between. They are practically glued to the windows so that they can see the sun. However, later in the story, they deny the change, and they remove Margot from the room because she will not deny it.
In The Shining one similarity in comparison to Long Day’s Journey into Night is the fact that both families have an inability to communicate. Danny is able to partly understand what is happening with his family, but fails to ever ask to talk to them about what he is suffering from. Just as Wendy and Jack both know about Danny’s intelligence and abilities, but have never discussed it or acknowledged them. The son also was first to even say the word divorce out loud in reference to his parents, even though Wendy and Jack both were considering it seriously, but they never spoke about to each other about it. While the Torrance family has a lack of conversations about topics, the Tyrone family always is conversing or arguing about something.
