In the story, “Seventh Grade,” Victor, the main character, tries to enamor a girl named Teresa, in the process he embarrasses himself but through persistence, he ultimately succeeds. For instance, the author, Gary Soto, writes in paragraph 12 that, “Victor tried a scowl, he felt foolish until in the corner of his eye he saw a girl looking at him. Ummm, he thought, maybe it does work, He scowled with greater conviction.” As the evidence concludes, Victor is flustered, because he felt foolish. Also, he still persists with the humiliating actions, even when he is getting looked at like he was weird. In addition, in paragraph 43, the text states, “Mr.
Paragraph 1: The children sucked out all the liveliness in Margot. ”He gave her a shove, but she didn’t move, rather she let herself be moved only by him and nothing else.”(pg.2) The classmates hurt her so much that when William shoved her, she just let herself be moved.

Enclosed to the four wall of this “big” room, the narrator says “the paint and paper look as if a boy’s school had used it” because “it is stripped off” indicating that males have attempted to distort women’s truth but somehow did not accomplish distorting the entire truth (Perkins Gilman, 43). When the narrator finally looked at the wall and the paint and paper on it, she was disgusted at the sight. The yellow wallpaper, she penned, secretly against the will of men, committed artistic sin and had lame uncertain curves that suddenly committed suicide when you followed them for a little distance. The narrator is forced to express her discomfort with the image to her husband, he sees it as an “excited fancy” that is provoked by the “imaginative power and habit of story making” by “a nervous weakness” like hers (Perkins Gilman, 46). Essentially, he believes that her sickness is worsening and the depth of her disease is the cause of the unexpected paranoia.
Their first conflict happened during one of these hates, where he had already been suspicious of her because he felt he saw her too often, and feared she was part of the thought police, where he glanced at her, and all his anger and hatred transferred to her face, where he fantasized about attacking her, raping her, and then cutting her throat. Later on in the novel it becomes obvious that she is only being around him because she considers herself in love with him. A sexual relationship soon after the fact follows. Following that conflict, Winston also has conflict with a character by the name of O?Brien. O?Brien is a high ranking party member which leads him to have a multitude of privileges that other citizens of Oceanic (the name of Winston?s country) do not.

Women kept rejecting him, nobody respects him, people take advantage of him, his best friend is his sister, and his crush is someone who he wants to talk to all the time but won’t because of the fear of rejection. He also gets really depressed when he sees something sad. “That’s what I liked about those nuns.
She got sore when I said that’” (Salinger 141). He says this because he 's jealous and envious of the other guy because Sally wants to hangout with him for a little. Holden makes her upset and kind of mad because the way he said it was sarcastic and rude. Holden doesn’t like him and is mad that he intruded on their date and Holden says, “...he walked about two blocks with us” (Salinger 142). He didn 't like that.
