In the historical fiction novel, Anna of Byzantium, written by Tracy Barrett, the author acknowledges that the grandmother, Anna Dalassena, influences Anna Commena in the way she acts and thinks. The author demonstrates this influence in the following quote, “I’m sorry mother,” I said. “I will need my grandmother to help me rule when I become empress” (Barrett 54). In the novel, the grandmother and the mother force Anna to choose either the grandmother or the mother, and Anna ultimately goes with the grandmother. During grandmother’s teachings, she overwhelms Anna with the fantasies of wealth and power and instills a growing influence in Anna.
Within the book, “The Back Door of Midnight”, the effects of syntax can be seen throughout the entirety of the novel. Firstly, the author, Elizabeth Chandler, uses italic to emphasize the narrator’s, Anna O’Neill Kirkpatrick, thoughts. The first example can be found in her first out-of-body experience when she yells “Please stop!” within her mind. This is used to emphasize when the main character is actually thinking versus her normal narration of the events, and helps the reader gain a greater understanding of the character. Secondly, she uses dashes to accentuate new and important information, juxtapose the connecting sentence, and add information to develop Chandler’s character, Anna, further.
Jacques de Vitry believed that Mary of Oignies actions and devotions were a more amazing feat than that of a man, because of the extreme asceticism she performed even as a woman, and her feminine qualities overall.

He expressed that she was going to give herself as a sacrifice on Holy Thursday but left because she could not control her tears like the priest had asked her to (370). Although, she prays to God
The universal fact of feminism is “the struggle to end sexist oppression” (hooks) in all forms. The time period in which Kate Chopin wrote “Story of an Hour”was during the same time the Women’s Rights Movement (1840 - 1920) was happening. During this time, women were paving a way towards a more independent future, so that they may make their own choices and be treated as equals. Chopin uses symbolism to showcase how an open window can express freedom and self-discovery within a woman. The use of an open window in “Story of an Hour” can be compared to how the Women’s Rights Movement was like a gateway for independence.
In this world where humans are creatures of habit, it is much easier to conform to a crowd and follow everyone else’s lead. One is much more likely to be judged and chastised for expressing individuality than for remaining a follower who does not think for him or herself. In The Awakening, as Edna Pontellier makes her way through the process of discovering herself through a spiritual awakening, she goes against the social norms and expectations that she is accustomed to, which ultimately leads to her alienating herself from all of the people around her. During the time in which The Awakening was published, women were still for the most part expected to be seen and not heard. A woman’s job in life was to be a good mother and a good wife, period.

Sometimes means not all the time, but often. Anne used to get mad at her mother all the time, but now, it happens less. Another sentence in this entry showed me that Anne’s relationship with her mother is improving. “.... It is certainly understandable that she snapped at me.” That shows that Anne understood why her mother snapped at her.
On the other hand, Kate Chopin’s protagonist Edna Pontellier undergoes a dramatic journey to find herself through an inner awakening, amidst the atmospheres of New Orleans and Grand Isle.
