If I were Lucy, I would likely imagine that because I had told her such secrets in confidence, she wouldn’t go out and share them with the world. And then, as Suellen and Ann both say in their literary works: “That was my

One night, Tom lands himself in the hospital after a DUI accident causing Lucy to argue with Willie about ending his bad habits once and for all. Some of the strategies the couple used in this particular argument were advantageous while others could use improvement. For example, Lucy does a good job using the future tense in her argument when she states to Willie “‘you will ruin him,’” if he keeps up his influence on Tom (Warren 345).

She also displays a good sense of volume control as she keeps her voice “quiet and even” throughout the argument while Willie lets out his anger too early by exclaiming derogatory statements like “Don’t be a fool!” (Warren 345).

This can be seen when she fees free in a confined room, or how her weak heart sets her free from her husband through death. The author also sets up a subtle melancholy tone to the story that leaves the reader thinking and analyzing the sad events that occurred in the hour. She also use her tone to point out the cruelty idea of marriage at the time and how Mrs. Mallard thought it was a crime which left her powerless because she was a woman.
