This opens Hindley up to the stresses and strains of leadership, in which Heathcliff can manipulate the the suffering of Hindley. Heathcliff and Hindley gamble, and Hindley is often drunk. However, Wade Thompson writes, “Hindley 's first instinct when drunk is to kill his son, whom Nelly Dean constantly hides. At one time Heathcliff accidentally rescues Hareton from a fall, but is so incensed by the mistake that "had it been dark... he would have tried to remedy the mistake by smashing Hareton 's skull on the steps"” (Thompson, 69). At this point, Hindley is a drunken wreck.
Through the interactions between the characters, Allende is able to investigate how voyeurism can lead to social apathy and act as a desensitizer in a crisis. She also serves a point that society on a hold tends to suffer this problem when it comes to many other problem out here in the world. Allende 's "And of Clay We Are Created" describes how a host of reporters and cameramen become desensitized and lack of interest towards Azucena as she is dying a preventable death. The situation clearly characterizes the bystander effect. Studies by John Darley, a social psychologist at Princeton University, Allan I. Teger, and Lawrence D. Lewis, his colleagues,

If you were stuck having to live with a sin which everyone condemned you for, would you choose to be frail or strong? One may argue that the feeling of weakness itself has the ability to cause a great burden on them. Weakness itself can drastically affect a person physically and mentally. In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, human weakness plays a significant role due to the fact that it progressively destroys the characters Arthur Dimmesdale and Hester Prynne who both committed adultery. In the first chapter, the narrator effectively informs the reader that weakness is, in fact, a major part of this novel with the following statement: “It [rose bush] may serve, let us hope, to symbolise some sweet moral blossom that may be found along
Many times, people lead themselves to their own downfall. Their demise is often a long and arduous one where they find themselves alone at the end. This truth is frequently depicted in novels, plays and other forms of entertainment. The isolation that occurs in these narratives is one that makes any human with a beating heart fear making the same mistakes that the characters do. In Sophocles weaves this theme of alienation into the plot of his plays, Oedipus Rex and Antigone, to tell a story where both Oedipus and his daughter, Antigone, are cut off from the rest of the world because of their misdeeds.
In “A Rose for Emily,” the protagonist, Emily displays the obsession through her isolation. Equally important, the theme of obsession works as a preeminent role through the protagonist. Emily was never allowed to be autonomous growing up, and she goes beyond the lines on maintaining a strong intimacy through her isolating lifestyle. In essence, Emily develops a mental illness from severe isolation due to the actions of her father. To compare, Faulkner shares a slice of evidence as to why Emily has an uncontrollable obsession for the dead, “After her father 's death she went out very little; after her sweetheart went away, people hardly saw her at all.” (Faulkner) Given these points, her father becomes arrogant and isolates her from society, or anyone who is willing to take Miss Emily from him.

The entire colony knows of the sin that Hester committed but do not know that Dimmesdale is involved. Hester is publicly humiliated alone on the scaffold as punishment and is treated very poorly.
This symbolizes her realization of being trapped for so long, and her desire now to free herself. However, because society is cruel and who never approve of a woman so independent, she creeps around the room to hide her escape. When John arrives at the nursery-like room, he sees what has become of his wife. His wife explains she has ‘gotten out, in spite of you and Jane,’ before John faints and his wife continues to creep around the room, trying her best not to step on the fallen body. In conclusion, the narrator of the Yellow Wallpaper, is what happened to a woman in an oppressed society.
It is said, “Some people create their own storms, then get upset when it rains”. This statement implies that some people create their own problems and then are confused when it all comes back to cause them distress. It proves accurate in the notion that when others are selfish, their very own actions can, in some instances, cause increasingly worse situations than what they were complaining of. This belief is one of the most predominant themes in the three texts that are being referred to in this essay. In “The Necklace,” “The Scarlet Ibis,” and “The Golden Kite, the Silver Wind,” the consequence of the characters’ selfishness lead to their eventual demise.
Humiliation can have jarring effects on an individual, but how many would choose to impose pain upon themselves; and what is the difference in the psychological effects? Hester and Dimmesdale committing the sin of adultery created a relationship between them that was both strange and mutual; but both suffered immensely from what they had done. Hester was publically disgraced, whereas Dimmesdale created his own suffering; in which brings up the question, who suffered more? In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter, two stories are told about punishment; Hester Prynne who faces public humiliation and Arthur Dimmesdale who inflicts private shame upon himself. Arthur Dimmesdale, a young minister, approaches the scaffold, asking Hester Prynne

Another element in this novel is Melinda’s inner conflict, man vs. self. What Melinda has been through greatly affected her everyday life. She struggles with depression, dislikes her appearance, and feels ashamed of herself for something that isn 't her fault: “I want to confess everything, hand over the guilt and mistake and anger to someone else...even if I dump the memory, it will stay with me, staining me” (Anderson 51). Andy Evans, the senior who raped her, made her feel worthless. This situation is much like the one in the novel The Girl on the Train by Paula Hawkins.
