At first it might seem as if Faye’s problem is more dire than the mother in “A Sorrowful Woman”, but it soon becomes clear that that is not the case. While Faye struggles with the fact that she cannot have children, the mother in the second piece already has a child but has become unable to handle and love him like she should. These are both problems that occur in people’s lives and are usually not spoken about openly, yet the author of “A Sorrowful Woman” really goes in depth about the mother’s deep seeded depression and want to withdraw from life while it seems like Faye’s problem is just as upsetting, yet seems to be glossed over and goes immediate to the solution to make the issue disappear, and fast forwards to their happy
The American experience is often corrupted and hard to achieve: this corruption is based on how loyalty, family dynamics, and the presence or absence of role models in life. Loyalty is a subject often betrayed in literature, as it shows a characters’ vulnerability, as they are unable to keep themselves content enough to stay with their families they have promised and dedicated their lives to, no matter for how long or to who. Rose considers this vulnerability, and chooses to repel from her instinct to leave. She believes that if something isn’t working, they should try to fix it before they abandon everything they once viewed as irreplaceable, “Don’t you think I ever wanted other things? Don’t you think I had dreams and hopes?
The impression we get of Matt’s mother is generally very negative. She shows little to no interest in her son, and when she does, it is mostly forced. She also barely shows him any kind of affection and she prioritizes her needs and her relationships with men over him. ‘’I liked to kid myself she would stop me if I didn’t sneak out of the house.’’ (P. 1, l. 10) Here it is very clear that Matt feels like this about his mother too. He is very aware of the fact that she does not care much about him, and he expresses that by mentioning that she probably would not care if he wandered off in the middle of the night with her being fully aware of it, which is very unusual since a considerate and loving mother would care.
This closure is not met from solving the mystery nor did it resolve the relationship struggle, but it was instead resolved by the extinction of deceit surrounding him and his mother. The main cause of the family struggle in the Schell family was due to the deceitful actions by Oskar and his mother, and the inability to express emotions and feeling between Grandma Schell and Thomas Sr. Within the finale of the novel, the reader witnesses a beginning to the fixed relationship between Oskar and his mother, but also the separation of a failed relationship between Grandma and Thomas. Even though one relationship was not able to survive through the trauma, the relationship between Oskar and his mother is fixed with truth and also implied that their
Relationship Analysis Personally The relationship between my sister and I has been challenging primarily due to us never being able to understand each other’s perspectives. I have never been able to understand why she makes decision that hindered her. I felt as though I failed my sister based on the decisions she made in her life. I understood my role as an older sibling which is why I tried to be cautious about my life decisions. So it is hard to watch her make unnecessary mistakes in her life that could have been prevented if she would have listened to me.

Jane Eyre is a strong and individualist character. As well as Rochester, Jane carries some traits of a Byronic hero. Apart from Fanny who bears her unhappy childhood with suppleness and suffers silently, Jane rebels and defies and is ‘excluded from the Reed family group in the drawing room, because she is not a ‘contented, happy little child’ – excluded, that is, from ‘normal’ society […]’ While growing up in Lowood, Jane opposes to the injustice and authority and also doubts Christian faith and therefore as typical the Romantic hero questions the authorities and institutions. As a mature woman, she is discontent with her situation and longs for freedom and adventure. With Rochester she experiences a passionate but unfortunate love as it is revealed
Because of this “puppeteering” of the characters mentioned above, Nora, Didi and Gogo, in turn, are used to the habit of leaving matters in the hands of other people and the time, hence, living a purposeless life in purposeless time. Nora, being a wife treated as perfect doll, lived not for improving herself as a human being but as a person responding to the impositions of her husband. Because of this, she has grown to blindly embody other people’s opinions (esp. His father) and doesn’t construct her own ones. She did not learn how to live by the principle of “Knowing Thyself” (Socrates) and stand by her own perspectives.
Goldman’s childhood strongly lacked any support from her family; her father did not approve of her individual goals and saw her as a failure due to her being a female. Her mother and most of her siblings were distant from her because of her rebellious nature. In addition, her family’s unsuccessful businesses lead her to live in poverty, the events that Goldman saw in the ghetto caused emotional trauma that caused her to conform to the strong belief in women’s right. Often, the past experiences in one’s life shape the way a person becomes in the future. One might argue that Emma Goldman’s daunting past propels her to share her ideology that
