Moments in one’s life are often labeled as good or bad. In reality, no one’s life is perfectly good or perfectly bad, rather it, life, is periods of ascension and descension, constantly fluctuating as one ages. For example, one obtaining their driving license is a moment of ascension whereas one’s first heartbreak is a period of descent. In Gustave Flaubert’s “A Simple Heart”, the main character, Felicite, is a maid to Mme Aubain, and experiences a rough life as she grows. From, “the misery of her childhood, the disappointment of her first love, the departure of her nephew, and the death of Virginie,” (Flaubert 802), through the death of Loulou, one can clearly see that Felicite’s life is one of constant descent.
Mrs. Mallard’s conflict reflect the situation of many women in that era because women in that time that was married lived under the husband identity, didn’t have much freedom, and were trap in marriage. Women in that era stayed in marriage even if they were unhappy. Even though Mrs. Mallard loved her husband it seems as she no longer cared to be in her marriage any longer. “But she saw beyond the bitter moment a long procession of years to come that would belong to her absolutely. And she opened and spread her arms out to them in welcome.” (Chopin, 1894, 16).
