However, she could have willingly escaped this confinement because her father was no longer there to set rules for her. Instead, she “went out very little” (Faulkner 53).

Of these storytellers, Victor could possibly be debated as the most extraordinary. The qualities that make Victor pictured as this unique character, that the fact that he is a dynamic character, and that he is an unreliable narrator.
They live in short stories. Two short stories that are interesting are, "The Necklace" by Guy de Maupassant and "The Gift of the Magi" by Henry. Madame Loisel is a beautiful woman who does all she can to give back the necklace she borrowed from her friend. Della sacrifices her most valuable possession so she has the chance to give her beloved husband a nice gift for Christmas.

This theme is thoroughly explored during the novel, as well as during modern history. In A Clockwork Orange, Alex discovers how his opinion on moral choice contrasts with that of the government that he is living under. It is evident that Alex believes that the freedom to make choices for yourself determines if you are truly human or not. The purpose of A Clockwork Orange revolves around this theme of fate and free will, and how your freedom to make decisions will impact you later in life.

On the other hand, there are many striking and funny moments in this play. For instance when Gwendolen tells her mother that, she is engaged to Mr. Worthing, her mother replies “Pardon me, you are not engaged to anyone. When you do become engaged to someone,I, or your father, should his health permit him, will inform you of the fact that.An engagement should come on a young girl as a surprise, pleasant or unpleasant, as the case may be.” (Wilde, The Importance of Being Earnest Act I, P 16) That may be funny at the first sight, but though the mother seems very reasonable she dares to make her daughter engaged to someone without asking the daughter’s decision. And then the mother starts questioning Jack’s social and economical status in behalf of the husband’s masculine figure. Besides, the mother is very interested in her daughter, but she becomes happy when she learns that Jack has no parents.
