In the second paragraph of the story the author states that she is suffering because she doesn't have the things she wants by saying, “She suffered endlessly, feeling herself born for every delicacy and luxury. She suffered from the poorness of her house, from its mean walls, worn chairs, and ugly curtains.” (Guy de Maupassant 2) “She had no clothes, no jewels, nothing.

TKaM Notes: USE PRESENT TENSE Thesis: The most obvious form of discrimination in Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird is racism; however, there are other types of prejudice and discrimination that typify relationships among the novel’s characters. It varies between a troubled boy and his town, a lonely woman and her fellow Baptists, and two siblings against the rest of their school. Each of these stories has common ground, but specify into contrasting situations. One might say, how can discrimination cripple a person's being?

It comes natural to think that such a great mind must have lived his life luxuriously, surrounded by the love of his family and friends, but this is not the case in Leonardo’s life. The trauma of having had two different mothers who loved him so much basically chased him for his whole life. From my non-professional point of view I suppose his problems derived from a mixture of an absent father (too focused on his job and on making money) and a combination of too much love coming from the maternal side. In my opinion, having had an excessive amount of attention from his mothers and too few consideration from his father’s side, he was naturally prompted to find an additional paternal figure. These facts, together with the big success of the gay trend in Renaissance Florence, have been the reasons for his homosexual

This is shown through Francie consistently being without food due to poverty, and having to discover for herself in a very difficult way that hunger was a painfully real issue. Food is essential to a growing child and while she may have grown accustomed to hunger pains, Francie was deprived of important nutrients. When the family did have food, it was often only bread or inexpensive meat; vegetables were not by any means a staple in the Nolan’s diet, causing their immune systems to suffer. In addition to this, Francie had to work rather than continue her education, because her family desperately needed money after her father’s death. Much of Francie’s young life revolved around school and her writing, making school very meaningful to her.
