In this novel, Of Mice and Men by John Steinbeck, Curley’s wife is portrayed as a troublemaking, licentious, and desolate character. One example showing Curley’s wife being a troublemaker is when George first met her, he was very cautious. He said, “She’s gonna make a mess. They’s gonna be a bad mess about her.

(page 4, paragraph 3)” Mrs. Strangeworth has completely changed personalities and is now known as a disrespectful, awful women who starts rumors. At the end of the story, it states, “She began to cry silently for the wickedness of the world when she red the words: Look out at what used to be your roses.

Mrs. Strangeworth changed from the sweet, loving woman she was in the beginning to the secretive, anonymous rumor starter in the end.
Lily then consequently comes to find that the tables are turned and that her mother is the one who is in need of forgiveness. She shows her struggle by saying, “people in general would rather die than forgive” (Kidd 277). Capriciously, she contemplates the situation thinking for one moment “it is over and done,” but in the next she “would be picturing her in the pink house, or out by the wailing wall” (Kidd 278). Ultimately, after her entire debacle, with thrown honey jars as well as many headaches, Lily comes to learn that “you have to find a mother inside yourself” (Kidd 288). This idea sets Lily at ease giving her the knowledge that everything is going to be peaceful from this moment on and that she can take the time to learn to forgive others, just as she has to learn to forgive

Throughout the play, she faces peer pressure, which affects her behavior. Abigail and Mercy quickly silence Mary’s urges to ‘tattle’ in Act I, and Mary is convinced otherwise. Later, Mary goes to court with full intentions of judging people fairly, but realizes they are doing “God’s work.” She begins to justify the hangings. Furthermore, she only tells the truth about the poppet because Proctor pressures her to do so. Once in court, the other girls accuse her of witchcraft, and she quickly changes her mind, pledging her allegiance to God, and calling Proctor the Devil’s man.
Birthmarks could be like magic stones that can grant wishes. In the story (The Birthmark) Aylmer who is described as a brilliant scientist his wife after a couple days of their marriage has she ever thought about removing the birthmark on her cheek. Aylmer immediately upsets his beautiful wife by saying “dearest Georgiana, you came so nearly perfect from the hand of Nature that this slightest possible defect, which we hesitate whether to term a defect or a beauty, shocks me, as being the visible mark of earthly imperfection”(Hawthorne 340).

She despises what she’s done, and hates herself for it every day. Her sleepwalking is a form of punishment for her sins.

Not to mention, the details of her death, as told by Queen Gertrude, are questionable and leave the reader in the shadows regarding the nature of her passing. However, it is arguable that Ophelia committed suicide due to her unstable mental state and overwhelming grief. The death of a loved one can really take a toll on a person’s mental and physical health. After Polonius was slain by Hamlet, Ophelia was consumed by grief.
