The relationship between the two was so bad that Connie had homicidal and suicidal thoughts, “Connie wished her mother were dead and she herself were dead and it would all be over. “(86) Some of the harassment from the mother seemed to come from jealousy. Oates shares some insight into the mother’s past and says she was pretty at one point in time “but now her looks were gone and that was why she was always after Connie.”(85) Her relationship with her father wasn’t much better. In fact, Oates tells us that he didn’t give much thought to anyone in the family because “he didn’t bother talking much to them.” (86) He worked a lot and when he came home, he wanted to eat supper, read the paper, and go to bed.

In addition, the theme of misery in which was suffered by Hecabe when her family was killed during this were, having her daughter sacrificed for the Greek army, and Polydourus being killed for her treasure. Also, Agamemnon suffered as well after losing his sons because Hecabe killed them in revenge of what he stole from her.

Was this a result of her parents coming from an impoverished background or maybe her mother was also abused and instead of preventing her own child from experiencing the same traumatic event decides to turn a blind eye and instead be oblivious of the abuse occurring in her own home. Her mother picks the man over her own child’s well being and uses it as an excuse. Was her ignorance and lack of education the cause of her actions.

Any woman who lost her virginity prior to marriage or without the approval of her father was considered a dishonorable one who disgraced her family. All marriage meant was the transfer of male guardianship from a woman’s father to husband. It was a negotiation where the slightest bit of love was only hoped for.

A woman was referred to as a whore if she initiated sex, a prude for refusing it, a dangerous monster that could not be in control in literature and as a slut for being a prostitute.
According to the quote, Curley 's wife does not like her own husband! She was forced into marrying a guy she doesn 't truly love.
