Like many people in the West, religion in the story was an escape from someone’s own sins and a safe passage to the afterlife. Death comes up a few times throughout the story and in the old western days, death wasn’t seen as an immoral entity to be afraid of. In the story, the old woman tried to commit suicide when someone she used to know saved her and said “let your death come when it comes” (pg. 611). Japanese culture sees little importance in death and most of the time they welcome it rather than ignore

One could argue that Curley's reaction displays a twisted loyalty to his deceased wife; he feels he needs to gain retribution by avenging his dead wife. Georges loyalty to Lennie is sometimes questioned in the novella he says, “ I could live so easy” George feels that Lennie is at times a burden but George exhibits a strong sense of loyalty to Lennie in the final section of the novella “his had shook violently but his face set and his hand studied. He pulled the trigger.”

Walter, believes Beneatha should give up on her dream of becoming a doctor. In the story, he states, ¨If you so crazy ´bout messing ´round with sick people- then go be a nurse like other women- or just get married and be quiet...¨(Hansberry 38). Her attitude towards his response was very fitting for the situation. She is tired of his attitude toward his dream and lets him know by telling him to give up. It seems as if Walter was the reason for Beneatha 's dream to become deferred.

Love clouds the judgement of Juliet when she considers how life could be if she stayed with her family, and she decides it would make the most sense to fake her death to live happily with him.

Nao states: “I will write down everything I know about Jiko’s life in Marcel’s book, and when I’m done, I’ll just leave it somewhere, and you will find it!”. In other words, writing deeply affected her life by it being of her great grandmother. Someone who she admired and hoped someone would find out about. This seems as something important to her, writing about her great-grandmother who was the only person that Nao really cared about and was important and interesting enough to write about. She decided to start writing about it because she knew she was going to kill herself and she owed it to Jiko to share her great life story, a memoir of someone she greatly saw as someone special to some special stranger.

After the conference, Marilla shows sympathy towards Anne as demonstrated in the last part of Scene 3.

That’s how I believe this will affect her relationship with Anne and Anne’s story about her past life caused Marilla to change her
