As she struggles to find her identity, teenage Connie cannot resist checking her appearance whenever she can.

He becomes too busy working to make pleasantries with the villagers and his sick mother stops speaking; Ethan becomes confined to a "temporal silence” as a coping mechanism to environmental disturbances. He experiences a brief hiatus when Zeena the Nurse arrives to care for his dying mother; but after his mother's death and his successive marriage to Zeena, she falls silent just as silent as his mother. Communication between the couple is minimal, artificial, shallow. After Mattie's arrival, Zeena forces a smothering silence on her as well with her "fault-finding (that is) of the silent kind"(pg. 37).
There were times when I felt completely fed up with him; especially when it came to making the lunches because he would always wake up late despite me telling him to wake up earlier to help. My experience is similar to the story since in both cases, women are expected to cook food for the rest of the family. Also, in both cases, the person we relied on left the house and the rest of the family was exposed to a new situation and had to figure out a way to continue through their daily lives without the help of the person that left. After that, we gain a sense that we should not always take someone’s actions for granted and we should show more gratitude to the person who has done many things for us.

I was obviously confused with the situation that I was being placed in at that time, but I knew that I could trust them. She told me that I had come earlier that day and complained of a headache and was told to lie down. I took a nap and missed some of my next class.
It soon proved to be the latter, because as the novel progressed he loses his spirit and he even became more selfish and “went home half ‘piped’” (Sinclair, 134). The workers, in their misery, sometimes seemed to forget about the others that relied on them, even ceasing to speak with each other. For example, in On Child Labor, Andrew Carnegie reveals that even children in a breaker room who should be joyful “were bending over till their spines were curved, never saying a word all the live long day”. These children never had the time to think of anything but work, so even if they had some other talent they would not even know. The workers were stripped of their personality as quickly as meat was
