“ She appeared to have fainted… she was lying on the kitchen floor under a heavy guilt, trying to connect the pain.. with the face of her mother looking over her.” (161) Thus we see that Pecola eventually gets pregnant by her father, but later on delivers a premature child who eventually dies. At the end the baby dies, Cholly Breedlove dies and the innocence of the girls is also dead. Claudia reminicizes that their marigold seeds had not sprouted because- “we had dropped our seeds in our own little plot of black dirt just as Pecola’s father had dropped his seeds in his own plot of black dirt.”(fragment 2) Claudia felt the need that someone should want the baby to live. Since the adults will not consider the circumstances, as such Pecola ' s innocence is destroyed. The girls had planned to save Pecola not by direct intervention but rather indirectly planting flower seeds in their backyard.

She was raised by her stepmother and her father, who treated her very poorly, and had to grow up with two beautiful but evil stepsisters.

One day, there is a king’s ball in the palace for the prince to find a wife and every eligible lady is to attend, but not poor Cinderella.

Shockingly, she walks downstairs after fleeing from her friends’ horrible news, and her husband walks in the door. As he walks in, Josephine screams and falls down dead; the happiness that she had felt was too much for her weak heart. Likewise, “A Rose for Emily,” written by William Faulkner, opens on a woman, Emily Grierson, except this time the woman is already dead. The story is told from the perspective of the townspeople, a collective “we.” They recount when she was exempted from her taxes, and then when she refused to pay them after the death of the person who remitted her. Then, the townspeople go back further to a time when Emily’s house had a stench so foul, a judge was consulted about what to do; it was decided that a few townspeople would stealthily sprinkle lime about her property in order to not confront her and seem discourteous.

Her parents died by a large earthquake in the movie, but in the book they both died along with other people in their kingdom from cholera, and that is why Mary had to go stay with her uncle Mr. Craven. I don’t think the way her parents died really affected the story; it just changed the reason why she had to go live at Misselwaite Manor. When Mary was going to meet Mrs. Medlock at the train station,
You can see the full extent of her suffering when she sobbed the truth to August “It was my fault she died. I killed her” (241) and when she torments herself with thinking that she is unlovable.

Pamela relates to labeling theory because once she is labeled and diagnosed with schizophrenia the people in her life see her behavior as deviant. Carolyn can also relate to this theory because she also sees her twin sisters behavior as deviant. In the book, Carolyn states, “I’m worn out trying to find reasons for Pammy to stay alive” (p. 263). Carolyn was having a hard time calming her sister down and then realized that she doesn’t want to live her life alone without her twin. According to Stress theory, Carolyn should have been the one to have an onset of mental illness.
The first successive scene I would like to point out is one towards the beginning of the film. Eve was talking to her sister Cesily about how she saw her father and Mrs Maddie (another woman) having sex in the shed while her mother, family and friends were inside the house. Eve was clearly distraught and emotional, telling her sister what she saw and Cisely stops her and says no that 's not what you saw or what happened. The camera then pans from them and goes back in time to the incident. It 's almost as if paned and move in a lazy Susan type of motion.
