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. When her father, the only man in the world who has loved her,
Who, in comparison with his brother, has a whole different look then his brother, the story had said, “Donald was bony, grave, and obsessed with the fate of the soul”(364). Saying this, it completely adds to the fact that people couldn’t believe that these two men are brothers. As well as these two brothers looking different from one another the story also emphasizes that unlike his brother Pete, who was married and had kids, Donald is , “the younger brother, was still single”(364). This probably shows why Donald was such a carefree person because he doesn’t have any responsibilities to deal with as an adult, while his brother had many responsibilities to look over throughout his life. In addition, “He lived alone, painted houses when he found the work, and got deeper in debt to Pete when he didn’t” (364).
This story applies to the Feminist Criticism because the relationship with Emily and any male figure in her life is dependent. Also, this short story displays a society completely dominated by males. Moreover, Emily in the text is presented as isolated, a life she lives due to her father’s controlling ways, this shows her as dependent and feeble minded for continuing this unhappy way of life based on a man’s jurisdictions. Faulkner, in A Rose For Emily, states, “That was two years after her father’s death and a short time after her sweetheart— the one we believed would marry her—had deserted her. After her father’s death she went out very little; after her sweet heart went away, people hardly saw her at all.
She doesn’t know how to see the harm in what she does, and in the book it said, “Tom was a dead man the minute Mayella Ewell opened her mouth and screamed,” (page 323). Mayella destroyed one of the only things she cared about, and that’s because she didn’t learn the value of the truth. Mayella Ewell’s life is made up of many lousy things which all come together and shape her as the erroneous girl that she is. She is uneducated, has no values, and because of this, doesn’t deserve to be treated with equality. All of these things are part of the themes that make up the book, To Kill a Mockingbird, and

I believe that in this graphic novel the important character is Rorschach, also known as Walter J. Kovacs. He is very different from the other characters by the way he perceives the world, the choices he makes, and how he affects the story. First, who is Rorschach or Walter J. Kovacs? Rorschach is a repulsive, despised, and unattractive man born in New York City in 1970 to a drug-using prostitute. In the other hand, his dad, in his mental image, is a true gentleman and patriot who he never met.
Other than Gilbert and Arnie, the Grape family consisted of two sisters and a mother. Before the youngest sister was born, the Grape family faced tragedy when their father committed suicide. Following the suicide of their father, their mother, Bonnie, began to suffer from severe depression, leading to her spending all of her time in front of the television and eating. Because of this, Bonnie is a very obese woman who never leaves the house and, therefore, cannot make a living. Because of this, Gilbert had no choice but to take care of and provide for the family.

People often use the phrase “I’m cursed” to explain their bad luck. Someone might claim to be cursed because they end up nearly being killed several times or they have repeated relationship issues. We always tend to associate curses with negative events in our lives. In The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz, we are introduced to a Dominican Republic curse, Fuku. Fuku has done things to the characters in the book that many could say is bad luck, but coincidentally both of them ended up in the same situation and both of them live really miserable lives.
Within this essay, many characters are introduced. Though compared to all of them, the author's grandmother, Aho, seemed to be the most relevant. Based on his tone he shared it was seen to be admiration towards Aho. This is likely, because when Momaday mentioned, "She could tell of the Crows, whom she had never seen, and of the Black Hills, where she had never been," it revealed that he was amazed by
