Like Holden, she also comes from a toxic family environment, keeping her kings in the back is a sign of possible sexual abuse from her alcoholic stepfather. Her ability to save Holden is recognized when he states metaphorically, “I don’t want you to get the idea she was a goddam icicle or something” (79). Going along with the motif of vision, Holden is unable to see that an icicle girl, who is still moving and not a frozen fish, is exactly what he needs. Nevertheless, his continued practice of never explaining himself is symbolized when he pretends he has a bullet in his guts and keeps his hand under his jacket “to keep the blood from dripping” (150). He wants to call Jane, but realizes he isn’t “much in the mood” for it (150).
Having nothing concrete has been found as the cause, it is easier to be patient declared insane. The pace soon there was nothing he could eat.

Dr. Raeburn, her physiatrist would ask about her life as he asked about her parents she responded "my father was a dick and my mother seemed to like him" then Raeburn asked about her dad and she responded "I hate my father almost as much as I hate the word dad. So, you can assume her relationship with her father was bad right then and there. One Possible reason for her behavior and mental instability. She spoke of her mother dying slowly at the hospital due to kidney failure but that she believed her father drove her away in the ambulance to die. She
Ursula initially refuses to be intimate with her husband, fearful that any child resulting from their union will have the tail of a pig, since they are cousins. Her husband nearly rapes her in his attempt to assert his manliness and control (Marquez 22). This illustrates his power over his wife in the sphere of love and relationships, after he kills a man in the village for insulting his manhood. Remedios the Beauty, on the other hand, remains a virgin throughout the novel and is portrayed as simple and unintelligent. Until she is a teenager, her mother is forced to dress and bathe her (Marquez 196).
According to Jocelyn Crawley, a graduate from Georgia State University, “... most Shakespearean romances reinforced and perpetuated male power becomes evident…” (Crawley). Due to the fact that Gertrude makes her own decision and marries Claudius, Lord Hamlet hates it, becomes distraught, and states, “By what it fed on. And yet, within a month (Let me not think on 't; frailty, thy name is woman” (Shakespeare 1.2.141-150)! Lord Hamlet believed his mother should follow his decisions and not make her own. By saying she is frail, he insinuates that she is weak and morally obligated to follow and accept his advice over her own conscious.
The reason I believe this is sad because before Ren moves to Bomont, his mother dies of cancer back in Boston, and his father is a dead beat. His mother gives him a sense of security in the old movie that he doesn't have in the new movie. Which gets made up for by his Uncle Wesley and his Aunt Vi. One scene that is relatively the same is the scene where Chuck openly abuses Ariel. He tells her to get out of the truck and she starts vandalizing the truck with a piece of steel rebar and he gets out an beats her up.
life has meaning and we grown ups know what it is ? is the universal lie that everyone is supposed to believe? (Barbery 22). In the film she describes the existence of her family by voice narration while filming them during their daily routines. Her sister is obsessed with her looks and boys her mother is hooked on antidepressants, watering expensive plants while pretending to be happy, her father is a government official career man and for herself she is contemplating suicide just to get away from it all.
Sally also shows these same trends of being forced to be a caregiver. It says on page 101 sally even gets less than that “Looking out the window is the last hope and pleasure of many of the trapped women of Mango Street, but Sally’s husband denies her even that.” The book The House on Mango Street is used in my opinion to show the impact of others around you, the impact of men on women just seems the most apparent. It shows how others before you can make you live life with such narrow vision, such little possible imagination, especially when you don't know what to imagine. Esperanza is different, that is how the author needed it, to show us that people can be different, that change is

For example, “Enrique is bewildered. Who will take care of him now that his mother is gone?” (7). This quote shows us that with the use of 3rd person omniscient POV, Enrique is hurt and broken that his mother has left him. “She slides to the floor, to her knees and prays. She vows to god she will never ask him for anything for her son” (260).
