They’re still not quite sure with what had happened to this meal to make the family sick, but in The Fall River Tragedy: A History of the Borden Murders, the family thinks they have been poisoned, which is entirely possible (Porter 108). Because it is stated that Lizzie tried purchasing arsenic and prussic acid. Back in the “Trial of Lizzie Borden” it mentions how during the murder, Mrs. Borden was on her way to work on the guest room, and it was there that she was murdered. An hour after Mrs. Borden was murdered, Mr. Borden finally returned home, and Mr. Borden wasn’t feeling too well, so he went to take a nap (Pearson 20/22). Then, Bridget, the house maid, went up to her room and also fell asleep.
Leah was the first one of the Price sister to notice their sister being bitten by seeing “Ruth May’s bare left shoulder, where two rd puncture wounds stood out.” (Kingsolver 364) Rachel’s reaction to the death of her sister says a lot about the character she developed into here in the Congos. When her sister passed, she thought about what would happen when she got home. The only thing that really got her feelings in a twist is how she believes she will be seen as the “girl they’d duck their eyes from and whisper about as tragic.” (Kingsolver 367) She was sad at first but just cared about what others back home thought of home. Selfishness is in full force in Rachel at this moment. When a kid dies in Congo, the mother and whole
Her father was repairing something and he fell of a ladder, broke his neck, and died. Matilda and her family slowly begin to hear about the fever and that it is affecting more and more people daily.

For example in Chapter 5, when Lennie is in the barn, getting all flustered and frustrated because he had just killed the pup on accident because he was play fighting with him, Curley’s Wife came in, and started bothering him. On page 90, Curley's wife said “ When I do my hair sometimes, I jus’ set an’ stroke it ‘cause its so soft.” To show this she did it, she ran her fingers over the top of her head. “Some people have coarse hair.” She said this, not knowing that Lennie likes to pet soft things. Then she had let him touch her hair, causing him to grab on and him basically killing her. My feelings about her throughout the book did not change, I didn’t like her at all from the beginning.
In The Wide Window, for example, he makes fun of the old wives’ tales of things like reading in the dark can ruin eyesight, or waiting to go in the water after eating. The main new character in this book is a widow that fears everything, for example never cooking anything on the stove for fear of it bursting into flames, or that the refrigerator will fall on her. Furthermore, the lake she lives on his inhabited by leeches that will eat humans if they smell food, meaning that if one goes into the water less than an hour after eating, the leeches will eat the person, eventually the ironic demise of the woman. This is a very dark, yet ironic take on old wives’ tales that also shows how willing Handler is to make fun of things that adults say. In fact, Handler himself talks about becoming suspicious of the phrases and proverbs that adults say to children, “and that to me feels like the journey of childhood, that you have many authority figures telling you that the world is one way, and you begin to suspect that the world is another way and your own mind and your own morality are guiding you on this path in a world where everyone else seems lost.
The film begins with the main character, Hannah Stern, being indecisive about what tattoo she should get with her friends. Before she can decide, she is obligated to leave the tattoo parlor for her family’s Passover dinner. Hannah despises the dinner every year due to her being disinterested and embarrassed by her Jewish relatives and heritage. She is also constantly reminded of how much she looks like her Aunt Ava’s cousin who she was named after, which irritates her. During the dinner, Hannah is asked to open the door as part of the Seder feast.
After many years she realizes that marriage didn’t work out either, after Jodies dies she meets a man called TeaCake who she falls for and runs away with. A bad storm hits them one day and a dog with rabies bites Teacake. He didn’t know the dog had rabies and ends up crazy and almost shot Janie but she did before he could. In the other story, The Great
For example when a young boy (“Teapot”) comes to her house and falls down the steps, the mother of the child blamed Sula for the boy’s injuries and then starting taking care of the child for the first time. Here once again we are shown how Sula is made into the scapegoat. Later after Sula’s death the women no longer cherish and want to take care of their children so they abandon them once again. (Morrison, page. 113-115, 117) In the case of Sula, this ironically replicates the sexual shaming of African American women in slavery.
