Her mother was asked to publish some of her poems in a book, but because of the arrow she live in (men were more dominant in society) Lucille's father would not let her publish her poems. In the poem it state “wife” by being an obedient wife, Lucille’s mother decided to sacrifice and give up the poems that she cherish so much by burning them in the furnace. Her “clutching hands, animal-like eyes, and her crying”, show how against she was to throwing away her work. She cherished them like “jewels”.
She admits, “Her marriage to Leonce Pontellier was purely an accident, in this respect resembling many other marriages which masquerade as the decrees of Fate…closing the portals forever behind her upon the realm of romance and dreams” (Chopin 18). In marrying Leonce, Edna abandoned her hopes for love and adventure. Although she thought that she would outgrow her childish desires, Edna still yearned for something more in her life. She did not fit her role as a housewife, “In short, Mrs. Pontellier was not a mother-woman…They were women who idolized their children, worshiped their husbands” (Chopin 10), Edna is not one of them. She is unapologetic when she chooses how to live her life.
Judy suppressed everything she felt, never confronting Danny. She played it all off, avoiding the drama she might cause. It was after a week of living with the man she most desired and his girlfriend that she finally decided she could bear it no longer.

When moments passed with no answer from her, Danny entered Judy’s room, “Her desk chair had been pulled out and right above it she swayed, hung to the ceiling.
She did not know the spells or the magic, so gave Joan all she had of care and courtesy and hard work.” (Pg. 59, 3rd paragraph) Also, she doesn’t give up and overcome obstacles.

In the book, it states, “Alyce backed out of the cottage, then turned and ran up the path to the road, she didn’t know why or where. Behind her in that cottage was disappointment and failure.
Throughout The Catcher in the Rye, by J.D Salinger, Holden does reach Watt’s central insight. Watt’s central insight is the “realization that life can never be grasped, never possessed or stand still” (Watts 75). Holden accepts Watt’s central insight when he rejects Phoebe’s offer to ride on the carousel, talking to the psychoanalyst about his thoughts, and admitting that he misses certain people in his life. The first reason that shows Holden has learned to let go is the moment he rejects Phoebe’s offer during the carousel scene. Phoebe, who is Holden’s little sister, still has innocence.
Brady’s repetition of words makes her ideas more dense and allow the argument to be shoved right into the readers face. She repeats the issues that go around in her life but in very precise detail. The repetition of words such as “I want…. food, house, wives, duties,etc.” shows what she wants and pictures a ignorant part of how men think what they believe they will receive from their beloved wives. Later Brady goes on to use
Jem and Scout are taught a very different, and more humane, way of treating people, regardless of how different the person may be, by their father, Atticus. He teaches them that “you never really understand a person… until you climb inside of his skin and walk around in it” (P 33). Scout tries to apply this as she struggles to understand the inhumanity she witnesses around her, but is largely unsuccessful until the end of the novel. Only after walking Arthur home on the night Arthur saved her life did she truly understand this; “Atticus was right. One time he said you never really know a man until you stand in his shoes and walk around in them.
Edna disagrees with society prohibiting women’s freedom, so she rebels and rejects the judgement of others. When Edna learns of Robert’s planned departure for Mexico she becomes irritable and refuses to socialize with others, although society expects her to do so. Adele fruitlessly attempts to draw Edna back to her place in society. “‘Are you not coming down? Come on, dear; it doesn’t look friendly.’ ‘No,’ said Edna” (Chopin 42).
In a sense, I believe her main theme is valid being what women most desire. Due to the constant oppression of women by their partners, many people, in addition to the Wife of Bath, believe sovereignty over their spouse is the perfect resolution to their complications. However, marriage is mostly about teamwork and support as the two people journey on through life. In the present day, it seems that we have made impressive progress as strong partnerships are much more prominent in marriages compared to the time period of the Canterbury
In the fifteen some odd years after the death of my wife, I’ve learned to replace her smiling gossip and her mascara gazes. Instead, I learned to truly focus. To question inwardly but never pry. Something told me this was just the silent solace Tim O’Brien so desperately craved. We spent long hours staring at papers, on opposite of the table, opposite sides of life.

She’s uh woman and her place is in de home.” In reality, Jody was right, Janie never cared or thought to make a speech for the public, but the fact that Jody Starks was the one to decide for her, gave Janie a “cold” (pg. 61) sensation that ran through her spine, for she knew that this change may not bring the joy and passion she once presumed. As mayor, Jody allowed those around him (including his wife) become aware of the power and authority he had over any being both mentally and economically.
