The monster uses sympathy as a means of manipulation because at first we sympathise with the creature but later shifts when we hear the creature's views.

When Lizabeth became a woman her first realization was that one cannot have both compassion and innocence. Compassion is showing pity for another’s sufferings. Just like Lizabeth was able to have compassion for Miss Lottie after hearing her father’s cry and tearing her garden up. She finally understood what Miss Lottie was going through and why she planted the marigolds. The marigolds symbolized hope for the Great Depression to soon end.

The short story" On Compassion" by Barbara Lazear appeared after her book " Playing After Dark (1986)". This short story argues that people are not born with compassion. Throughout the book Lazear gave examples to determine if the situation was out of compassion or fear. The author also, gives information about the Greeks and she states how it can be a possibilities the Greeks had compassion within a society to teach people to have sympathy for people suffering. Although, other's may voice their opinion to being born with compassion, I initiate to include evidence from the text to prove that compassion needs to be taught to people and there is no possible way that they are born with compassion.
This short story wrote by Barbara Lazear Ascher a woman who describes with explicit details her thoughts and feelings of the participants in the streets of New York. The author uses rhetoric elements such as Pathos, Logos and Ethos to convince her audience that compassion is not a characteristic trait, it is developed within ourselves.

The short story ”Marigolds” follows the narrator, a 14 year-old-girl living in extreme poverty during the Depression, as she transitions from the innocence of childhood to the raised consciousness of adulthood. Lizabeth has been poor for a long time, and her story describes her battle with feelings of frustration and hopelessness at being trapped in such a desperate situation. I believe one theme of “Marigolds” is the idea that as we grow up, the innocence of childhood is replaced by compassion. We see this in Lizabeth’s emotional state after she taunts Miss Lottie, when she ruins Miss Lottie’s marigolds, and finally in her reflection at the end of the story.
In the essay, “On Compassion”, writer Barbara Lazear Ascher used resources style and rhetoric to convey her attitude such as the use of questions, ethos, pathos and logos, figurative language, imagery, and tone. This way, Ascher’s writing was well organized and well put together meanwhile giving the readers a chance to analyze and comprehend the text and understand Ascher’s views. Ascher begins her essay in Upper East Side, Manhattan, New York; a place known to be where the wealth lives and idea of compassion falls. Yet as a typical New Yorker (Barbara Ascher), random acts of compassion can be seen but are not enough given awareness. This is where Ascher’s thesis falls in.
Literature that stimulates the feeling of pity, sympathy and sorrow is Pathos. The two pieces of literature express pathos in different lights, showcasing a rollercoaster of emotions for the reader.

To Suffer or Not to Suffer As human beings, we try to eschew from the suffering and adversities that plague human morality. Nonetheless, society remains drawn to the surplus of tragedies in plays, movies, and literary works. Not only do these works provide an escape from our own hardships, but suffering and tragedy is a significant aspect to the development of human society. Personally, I have experienced my own share of sorrow, trauma, and difficulties in life. While they may not be as severe as those faced by the characters in A Doll’s House and Never Let Me Go, a pervasive theme still manifests in the presence of suffering.
In Edgar Allan Poe’s short story “The Cask of Amontillado” and Zora Neale Hurston’s short story “Sweat” the two characters are consistently belittled by the antagonist in the stories. In “Sweat” Delia is an average housewife, but unfortunately she is in an abusive relationship with her husband named Sykes, who has a tendency to degrade Delia. Throughout the story, Sykes treats Delia horribly and towards the end of the story, Delia finally realizes that she has had enough of her abusive husband because he makes her feel as if she is not worth anything. Due to Sykes’ tendency to degrade her, Delia is considered to be a sympathetic character. The same kind of conflict affects the narrator in Edgar Allan Poe’s story “The Cask of Amontillado.”
Unsurprisingly, this article discusses the emotions in Kate Chopin’s “The Story of an Hour.” S.S. Jamil shows the irony in stereotyping women as overemotional, when the conventional roles Louise Mallard lives in force her to suppress her emotions.

The self-assertion that Louise discovers is permission to be herself, since emotions are a substantial part of who we are. The narrative of this article paints Louise as the victim and society as the culprit.
