She only went to school for a few years because she had to take care of her family, so Mayella’s opportunity to learn the proper ways of a woman vanished. She never learned moral values like telling the truth, and was never treated with respect. When she was being called “ma’am” in court, she accused Atticus of making fun of her, but if she stayed in school she would have known that is how to properly address others. The flowers in Mayella’s garden symbolize how she needs beauty in her ugly life, and how caring is a positive thing, but sometimes no matter how hard you try hard, the things you care about will still die (like her relationship with Tom Robinson). Mayella grew up with an abusive father, so she never learns how actions can have consequences.

Another thing the two stories have in common is that they’re both using dramatic Irony. At the beginning of the story the narrator says that “Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble,” so the woman’s friends were very careful about telling her the news. But instead of dying of depression, she died of happiness. Unlike the last story, the mood of “The Story of an Hour” is lighter and more positive relative to “The Interlopers.” Although there are two deaths in the story, it is mainly triumphant as the woman has finally been freed from the grasp of her husband, as she didn’t like
The Lenore his love can represent someone who is very dear to us and whom when we lose them we will grieve a lot. Poe on the other hand represent the true person who has to bear the loss and go through various stages of losses from denial to anger displacement to even depression. It was very wise of the author ton leave out the suicide part since it would mean that people who grieve after the loss of a loved one will always end up in depression followed by suicide. Though many a times readers and scholars wonder what was really going through Poe’s mind as he was writing this great masterpiece, an in-depth analysis of the language, symbols and the overall theme of the poem can be deduced. These five elements show us the psychological weaknesses of the protagonist in the poem The Raven.

The grandmothers moment of grace causes a terrible reaction from The Misfit. After The Misfit kills the grandmother he says “It’s no real pleasure in life,” which I think shows that the grandmother may have had some kind of impact on him in there discussion.

Secret Life of Bees Essay “The Secret Life of Bees” by Sue Monk Kidd explores the way of life through the metaphor of a bee’s. Bees represent people and their lives within a home that no one may notice. A range of characters are developed throughout the story from a young girl who escapes a troubled home to a black woman who leads a honey company during the Civil Rights Movement. However, the character I particularly admire is May, a black woman who cares for all creatures while dealing with severe depression. May Boatright was a twin to April Boatright who sadly committed suicide years before.

In the end, Christina Guttierez was eventually dispparred, which shows her ineffectiveness in law. Also, she had many health conditions and later died, which possibly played a role in the way she performed as a lawyer. However, the prosecution side did a great job in making Adnan look bad. The state believes that Adnan’s motive was that “he became enraged, he felt betrayed,” and that was why he killed Hae.
She tired to stay keep in touch in my with my mom when a lot of people just kinda turned their backs on her, which is something that hurt her a lot. Thats something that meant a lot me personally and showed just how thoughtful she was about people. Our family probably wouldn 't be here if it wasn 't for her so we owe a lot to her. Am firm believer that major things in life are just meant to be to be that way. It 's amazing if you think about it but if it wasn 't for her life would be
