Based on the descriptions of The Misfit, he symbolizes death; the author forces the entire family to face death because of the grandmother. Upon discussing Jesus, The Misfit conveys his moral fortitude with the proposal that “…He shouldn’t have [raised the dead] … He threw everything off balance…then it’s nothing for you to go away and follow Him, then if He didn’t, then it’s nothing for [enjoy your last minutes] …by killing someone…no pleasure but meanness (O’Connor 244). Unlike the grandmother, The Misfit, seems sure of his moral beliefs. While it is true that the misfit is a murderer, he maintains strong moral beliefs.
Julia was the main reason why Edouard was spilling more about Sarah. First of all, Edouard’s father had been living with this guilt for what had happened to Sarah’s family from when it happened to when he had died. Edouard promised his “ father on his deathbed, that he would not tell my children or his wife” (160). Once, Julia found out who had previously lived in her house, she had to get all noisy and find who this family was and what had happened to them. Edouard had broken a commitment to his father on not telling anyone what had happened to the little girl ”Sarah” which puts Edouard in a lot of guilt since he obeyed his father’s last wishes.

They are placed in these stories to show the importance in individuality, and all the beauty that comes along with it. Everyone in both stories are “equal” or their idea of equal. Ayn Rand shows this in the story when everyone is told to wear the same color clothing while in Anthem they are forced to always forced into wear handicaps to hid their beauty, strength, and even their intelligence. Not only are they forced to wear certain clothing with no choice but in both stories the people are punished for just being who they are. The reason for all the same clothing just leads back to the individuality part of everything.
“The eyes of our brothers are dull, and never do they look one another in the eyes. The shoulders of our brothers are hunched, and their bodies were shrinking and wished to shrink out of sight” (Rand 46). This quote gives the idea that they feel some sort of fear or uneasiness but can’t seem to express their feelings because it’s against the law. That feeling is felt throughout the entire book except the ending when Equality finds the meaning of life which is one’s self.
Not only women here have the gender roles. Macduff's family is killed and it is looked down on when men cry, yet here it is more emotionally taken by the audience than when Lady Macbeth gender roles are flipped. Having Macduff be manly man yet cry at the death of his family makes him more of a ‘well rounded character’ and lady macbeth's character is more ‘damaged’. The end of Lady Macbeth's power left so broken he had little response to it.

Harriet Beecher Stowe is most famously regarded as being the author of anti-slavery novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. However, before publishing this famous novel, she started off writing short stories and newspaper articles that were not nearly of the same caliber as Uncle Tom’s Cabin. When she was still just known as Harriet Elizabeth Beecher, she was inspired to become a writer by the vibrant literary culture in her hometown of Litchfield, Connecticut (Joan D. Hedrick "Stowe 's Life and Uncle Tom 's Cabin" par. 3). At the age of 21, Harriet Beecher and her large family relocated to Cincinnati, Ohio, due to her father’s new role as president of Lane Theological Seminary, a training school for Presbyterian ministers (“Lyman Beecher”).
