When there is a conversation between the narrator and an ex-doctor in chapter 7 of Invisible Man, the ex-doctor says that the narrator should “be his own father,” and to “remember that the world is possibility if only it is discovered,” but also to “leave the Mr. Nortons alone,” (156) in the process. In the story, Mr. Norton betrays the narrator by eventually getting him kicked out of college even though Mr. Norton promised him not to do such thing. So, when allegory is used with Mr. Norton, he, in this case, represents white people and the idea how they betray people of color. This quote suggests that for this reason all “Mr. Nortons” should be left alone so that they don’t end up betraying black people and confuse them about their identities in the aftermath of events.
At the start where Raleigh joined the company the relationship between himself and Stanhope as we can see gets off to a bad start and eventually gets even worse throughout the play. The biggest temper outburst for Stanhope was when Raleigh is going to send a letter back home, it happened because he was scared that Raleigh would tell his sister about how much he has changed and the drinking problem is one of the reasons that Stanhope had fear that Raleigh is going to tell his sister, which is shown in the line “Don’t Dennis me! Stanhope’s my name! You’re not at school! Go and inspect your rifles!”.

In the short story, Emily’s father is proven to have been oppressive to her after running off every young gentleman that came around looking to court Miss. Emily. “Colonel Sartoris invented an involved tale to the effect that Miss Emily's father had loaned money to the town, which the town, as a matter of business, preferred this way of repaying” (Faulkner Page 1). Because of Emily’s father loaning money to the town, Emily was not supposed to have to pay taxes as long as she lives. This is an example of Miss Emily being sheltered by her father, which later on, leads to him oppressing her.
I believe a difficult moment for her was when her mother and Lori went away for the summer and left her in charge to pay the bills and feed the kids.

This trip entailed her practically being sold to a man for sex by her own father. She kept thinking that her father would stop this man or that her father would come save her if anything were to happen.

This whole ceremony generates disapproval and disgust from Hamlet who is still grieving the recent death of his father. He finds that the wedding came too soon and he scornfully tells Horatio that they were able to use the leftover food from the funeral for the wedding. Hamlet’s negative feelings are clearly shown through his first soliloquy where Richard Levin, author of Gertrude's Elusive Libido and Shakespeare's Unreliable Narrators, states that, ”Hamlet's principal grievance in the first soliloquy is Gertrude's hasty remarriage, which he feels has made his life unbearable” (Levin 1). In this soliloquy, Hamlet

Equality 7-2521 starts the novel as misguided, who has just never understood that he is not quite the same as everyone around him. When Equality 7-2521 incidentally returns late to the Home of the Street Sweepers, he postponed to tell his Home Council where he has been, and is thrown into the Palace of Corrective Detention, where he 's beaten. "Take our brother Equality 7-2521 to the Palace of Corrective Detention. Lash them until they tell" (64). The refusal to account for himself, based on how the Elders treated him and his lightbulb , was strengthening the thought of "self", which until this minute was truly not understood.
