Stella is resentful and angry. She does not try to escape the reality she is faced with but allows it to negatively affect her attitude towards her sister and her mother. For example Ozick explains “Then Stella took the shawl away and made Magda die. Afterward Stella said: ”I was cold.” And Afterward she was always cold, always. The cold went into her heart: Rosa saw that Stella’s heart was cold.”(300) Through this we see that Rosa has come to realize that in the dire circumstances of their situation Stella has come to really only care for herself not her family unlike Rosa.
One of the reasons that Adeline 's is so depressed is because the first thing is the fact that Adeline never gets any mail from anyone because her parents have forbiddened anyone from getting any mail. When she goes she was very small and then when she was older her parents never got here any new clothes and then she became known as the referee. She had made friends at her school but then her parents had have enough so then they had sent her to an orphanage. Finally no one cares about Adeline because if someone did then she would not feel like she is nothing and then she would have felt better about her self and then she probably would have had a better thought about herself and maybe about her friends. That is why I think that Chinese Cinderella is a depressing story.
If you tell your mom she will be heart broken and your step dad might have revenge on you. This knowledge of this happening puts you in a pickle because either you hurt your mother or you might get hurt yourself. So much knowledge can be bad for you, take into account that the monster was not raised in a family. The knowledge that he reserves in his eyes it is correct, but in the people's eyes around him it is horrifying and wrong. He was never raised in the eyes of a father or mother, he was never taught right from wrong.
Not only does place influence an individual, but the individual influences the place as well. For Nellie Pritchard and Rose Gardner, Black Mountain interacted with them as a person would. For Nellie, the mountain reflected her feelings of desperation, death, and becoming lost or a part of the land. Rose stated that "the mountain had become my home, a safe friend.." and saw it as a healer and a new beginning with Jack Allen after Hobbs' death. To Josie Clay, the mountain evoked loss and regret, as it took her daughter away and was a part of what drove her daughter to commit murder.
“When I was little, I would think of ways to kill my daddy.” (Gibbons 1.) Since the father was not a father figure and more of a warden who beats and sexually abuses her, she has never seen him as someone with power who can control it. She took care of both of her parents and anyone who was actually supposed to be her
He was admittedly abusive to women. Later, he reflects about his relationship, in particular, his twenty-fourth birthday when she shot at him five times but missed on purpose. He said, "She wanted to hurt me as only a child can be hurt by its mother,” (84). Fuckhead understood the mutually-destructive nature of his relationship with Michelle and never sought to alter or end the relationship. Fuckhead never made any changes to the way he treated women regardless of any realizations.
They both lack of sociality and romance and denial. Miss Brill and Emily Grierson both experience lonesome and rejection, and obviously neither of them know how to deal or cope with it. The way that Emily was raised with her father always pushing away anyone who tried to get involved in Emily’s life. In his eyes no one was good enough for his daughter, and this continued till the day he died. After Emily’s fathers death a man named Homer Barron walked into her life, and lest just say he wasn’t feeling the exact same way about her, or any other woman in that matter.
Through Nandana, Badami has portrayed an Indian woman brought up in an orthodox environment of restrictions where her wishes were crushed but she wanted her daughters to follow their own choices. Anita Rau Badami represents the multi-cultural society. They conceptualize cross-fertilizations between Canadian literature and intervene they thematize the ways in which the effects of environmental and economic global restructuring, along with the disintegration of received local forms of national and cultural identification, transform the microspaces of social
... get thee to church a Thursday or never after look me in the face" (Line 180, page 1068). As a parent, Capulet refused to consider Juliet's feelings and even went as far as to threaten her, putting Juliet in an overwhelming situation that made her feel helpless and desperate. When Juliet herself states that "if all else fail, myself have power to die" (Line 272, page 1070), she uses these words to show how powerless she felt and how destroying herself was the only "power" she has. The fact that Capulet could just order Juliet to get married and expect her to follow his orders proves the lack of control Juliet herself has over her life. The overwhelming feelings Juliet has for Romeo and her distress in having to marry someone else caused Juliet to make rash decisions such as going to Friar Lawrence and going along with the plan that ended up killing both Romeo and herself.

One of the things I automatically noticed when reading Laura Esquivel 's Like Water for Chocolate was the constant mentioning of hot and cold sensations that Tita experienced. This begins to appear in the book in as little as 14 pages. On this page it states, “Tita felt her body fill with a wintry chill: in one sharp, quick blast was so cold…”. The wintery chill is alluding to when Mama Elena appeared in the kitchen and brought her news of Rosaura’s agreement to marry Pedro. Stricken with sadness, Tita is left with a feeling of depression, loneliness, and hatred which is symbolized through her constant sensation of being cold.
Minerva was the second oldest and the strongest of the Mirabal sisters. “She was always into her wrong and rights” and that’s why so many people (Mostly women) honor her till this day. Trujillo was a dictator of their country who never liked anyone to go against his word and if they did he’d kill them and make it seem like the person did it him or herself . When Minerva was a kid she always looked up to him until her friend from school told her stories showing the real him, and that’s when everything began to change. After she heard those stories she never looked at him the same she hated him...literally.

George found out and goes to find Lennie before anyone else.
