In the story of the Garden of Eden, Adam and Eve are banished from the garden due to their disobeying of God’s rules. By incorporating a similar language in “The Monkey Garden” one can see there is a reason for Esperanza’s banishment too. In this chapter Esperanza does not want to play with the boys, “[she says], Sally, come on, but she wouldn’t… so [she] just left” (Cisneros 96). She denies the fact that the boys have control over her and Sally, but in her society, this is not a problem. Esperanza is the only one who does not want to kiss or play with the boys; her decision to not play with them is disapproved so she is excluded.
“...She didn’t like dogs or cats or birds or flowers or nature or nice young men” (O’Connor 485), Hulga’s personality might be like this because of her wooden leg. She might have given up on herself because she is not able to do everything she will like. For example, a wooden leg is ugly, uncomfortable, and prevents you from doing certain things. Therefore, the leg is preventing Hulga from being who she really wants to be, that is why she pushes away everything that will make her happy and what define who she really is. The author does not directly mention this in the story, but by the way Hulga acts the reader can conclude that the wooden leg symbolizes her new
At one point, a young girl wanted to touch Esperanza's doll ,but Esperanza thought she was dirty so Esperanza didn't let her touch it. Her mother seemed very angry, and at the time Esperanza didn't know why. As the situation progressed Esperanza understood that what she did was wrong. When Esperanza was wealthy she didn't really think about how hard it was for the people who got deported from the camps. So she didn't really care about those people, but as Esperanza had to live the lifestyle of fear for deportation, she felt bad for the people who were deported.
Many believe that it’s Tom Buchannan to be blamed because he lies to Wilson who killed his wife Myrtle to get his revenge towards Gatsby by getting him killed for trying to take Daisy away from him. Gatsby could have prevented his own death if he didn’t lose to his own ego to claim Daisy, as his own to claim dominance over Tom would later seal his fate in a death bed. During chapter 7 things get heated when Tom and Gatsby started arguing “Your wife doesn’t love you …. she’s never loved you. She loves me”(131-7).
Even though Hester spends time helping to make clothes for the poor, they treat her badly in spite of her good intentions. She is not just an outcast, but also so low in the opinions of others that even children feel encouraged to make fun of her, even though they have not the faintest clue what she has done wrong (probably they are too young to understand). That Hester chooses to live near the woods, on the border between forest and the town, is a clear and potent metaphor for her place in limbo between the spheres of the moral and immoral. Indeed, Hester seems to be trying to live in both worlds simultaneously, which results in her further degradation and the increasingly clear fact that she will have to make a choice. Either she must assimilate to Puritan tradition and follow their laws to the letter, or she can roam free and follow her passions and instincts while losing her connection to society.

In ‘Romeo and Juliet’ the Capulets and Montage's end their feud after the tragedy itself. “O brother Montague, give me thy hand” (Shakespeare 5.3 Page 13). Capulet has realized the harm and effects of the death of the ‘star-crossed lovers’ after losing his precious treasure he felt guilt due to all the cruel words he had said to Juliet. The feud is an important aspect of the book because it was the reason for all the deaths and secrecy. “Doth with their death bury their parents' strife.” (Shakespeare Prologue page 1.)
The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne centers around the idea of shame, a controlling characteristic of life that influences every characters actions. This novel focuses on the Massachusetts Bay Colony, a strict Puritan society. When Hester Prynne commits adultery in this town, she is forced into a lifetime of public shame. This not only changes her way of life, but her daughter’s as well. Yet the man that she commits adultery with is not exposed, and instead endures his own private shame, which is arguably more brutal than if he revealed himself as her lover.
In the beginning of the book Hester Prynne had committed adultery and had a baby because of it which caused people to look down upon her and they made her wear a scarlet A on her clothes to show that she committed adultery. Hester instantly regretted the decision she made, but she never knew how this decision could impact her life for the better. She became emotionally stronger, she became a wiser and
