The Fault in our Stars Held prisoner by the cancer flooding her lungs with fluid Hazel has lost her ability to interact with people, Hazel is lost to her books and herself, feeling guilty. She is aware that there is nothing she did to cause the cancer but she only tries to decrease the pain she believes that she is somehow causing her family. She gives in to death and gives up rather than make a profound impact on the people around her. She begins to explain this as she narrates “Late in the winter of my seventeenth year, my mother decided I was depressed, presumably because I rarely left the house, spent quite a lot of time in bed, read the same book over and over, ate infrequently, and devoted quite a bit of my abundant free time thinking about death,” Green, p.78. She realizes that she spends precious time obsessing about death, she is wasting her life grieving about something she cannot control, predict or change.

The fact that she “never get[s] to talk to nobody” (Steinbeck 86) and gets “awful lonely” (86) implies that she lives a lonely existence.

No matter how hard she tries to appeal to the ranch hands, they will always see her as the ranch whore, nothing more or less.
Throughout the entire story, there is no mention of Magda’s father, Rosa’s family, or anybody else Rosa could possibly love, other than Stella; however, Rosa seems to hate Stella: she felt no pity for her, she was sure that “Stella was waiting for Magda to die so she could put her teeth into the little thighs,” and she “saw that Stella’s heart was cold.” Rosa felt no compassion for her own distrustful and cold-hearted niece, for several possible reasons, including that Stella was not her biological daughter or that Stella was passed the age of 12, which is the age when Jewish women are considered to be adults. However, the most likely explanation is that because Stella, who is jealous and selfish, does not partake in Rosa’s sacrificial love for Magda, Rosa only fundamentally loves
She refused that her father died and became mad. She isolated herself from the rest of the town causing them to wonder if she’ll ever leave home again. Like the story “A Worn Path” Phoenix too had her own issues which people have seen as mad. She believes that her grandson is still alive. Although the difference between the two would be the type of character they are.
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
To make matters worse, the widow had “lived there alone, with her son.” Since he was murdered, she was left with nothing.

In a patriarchal society, women lie at the bottom of the social hierarchy. A patriarchy judges women for their beauty and innocence rather than merit and intelligence. Throughout the twenty-four books of The Odyssey as well as Game of Thrones, a modern day rendition of medieval society written by George. R. R. Martin, women struggle for power in society. Most of the women in these two plots are mothers and seductresses.
