Ammu begins to look for ways to regain control over her own life, such as her relationship with Velutha. However, because of the events that transpire from the relationship, she begins to resent her children even more, once even shouting at them that “If it wasn 't for you I wouldn 't be here! I would have been free!" (240).

“Why modern women develop high levels of stress.” Normally, stress is what we feel when we have to respond to a demand for our energy. According to Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety, (2000). “Stress is a natural part of life and occurs when there are important changes in our lives, whether positive or negative. It is believed that some stress is okay but when stress occurs in amounts that individuals cannot handle with, both mental and physical changes may occur.” Although, stress is a growing concern in the current centuries, where women gradually face conditions of overwork, insecurity, low levels of satisfaction, and lack of independence.

His world's perspective is being influenced by the confusion he has with his mother's behaviour. The queen, Gertrude, once "... Followed [Hamlet's] father's body, like Niobe, all tears ... would have mourned longer - married with [Hamlet's] uncle" (I.ii.150). Hamlet compares her mother to Niobe who cried for a very long time for her children's death that she turned into stone. Gertrude does a similar act towards her husband's death but only for a short period of time.
The “Story of an Hour,” by Kate Chopin, is a short story that centers around Mrs. Mallard. Mrs. Mallard’s character changes from learning that her husband is dead to finding out that he is actually alive. In the beginning Mrs. Mallard is described as a faint-hearted wife so the news of her husband’s death had to be given gently.

In the first chapter Orleanna is the narrator who describes the setting and talks about a ruin that is so bad that it does not seem possible that it could have happened. She also goes on to foreshadow the death of her youngest child, Ruth May. She also asks for forgiveness and discusses the reasons for why it took her so long to leave her husband. In the last chapter it seems as though Ruth May is the narrator who is responding to her mother.
