Get to know the person as who they really are before you start to judge. In To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee, many characters have some very misleading appearances.

After frightening Flora away from Bly, who was accompanied by Mrs. Grose, the governess is left alone with the young boy Miles, who has been causing a lot of mischief around the home. In the middle of their conversation, the governess sees Quint peering through the windows of the house, yet Miles does not see him (116). The governess becomes enraged, leading Miles to ask “Is she here?”, which arguably is his moment of admittance and recognition of Miss Jessel’s ghostly presence (122). The governess replies that it is not Miss Jessel but instead the “coward horror”, causing Miles to look in the direction of Quint (122).

Shockingly, she walks downstairs after fleeing from her friends’ horrible news, and her husband walks in the door. As he walks in, Josephine screams and falls down dead; the happiness that she had felt was too much for her weak heart. Likewise, “A Rose for Emily,” written by William Faulkner, opens on a woman, Emily Grierson, except this time the woman is already dead. The story is told from the perspective of the townspeople, a collective “we.” They recount when she was exempted from her taxes, and then when she refused to pay them after the death of the person who remitted her. Then, the townspeople go back further to a time when Emily’s house had a stench so foul, a judge was consulted about what to do; it was decided that a few townspeople would stealthily sprinkle lime about her property in order to not confront her and seem discourteous.

In The Crucible, Miller uses motifs to demonstrate how the idea of witchcraft that spread throughout Salem caused panic and chaos among the townspeople. One of the motifs that Arthur Miller uses to enhance the theme of the story is abandonment. During The Crucible, John Proctor had an affair with Abigail Williams causing Abigail to be fired from working in the Proctor’s household by Elizabeth Proctor. Because of this, Abigail has lost touch with John and he no longer has any feelings for her which has made Abigail feel abandoned. As voiced by Abigail Williams, “John - I am waiting for you every night” (Arthur Miller 1246) and stated by John Proctor, “Abby I never give you hope to wait for me.” (Arthur Miller 1246), It validated how Abigail is waiting for John to come back to her and he continues to tell her that he is never coming back and not to get her hopes

In The Yellow Wallpaper a dangerous effect of complete isolation is paranoia. It is linked in with the obsession of the wallpaper as the narrator does not want anyone else becoming interested in it. The narrator wants the wallpaper all to herself to study and becomes suspicious of John and Jennie. She claims to have “caught [John] several times looking at the wallpaper” and “caught Jennie with her hand on it” (162). This effect of isolation is dangerous because the narrator locks herself in her room and throws the key out of the window in order to free the women who are trapped in the wallpaper.
A poltergeist is said to be a spirit that harasses and torments its victims. Harassment typically includes mysterious and disturbing events such as loud sounds, moving furniture, sheets and covers being pulled of the beds , small objects inexplicably falling off shelves, stones rising off the ground and being hurled people. In a 2005 Gallup poll found that 37% of Americans believe in haunted houses and nearly half believe in ghost.
