First, Jason being so austere, can lead to Vivian being scared of death. However Susie is very compassionate which can lead to Vivian being comfortable and able to accept her mortality. Both Susie’s and Jason’s attitudes towards Vivian stay consistent throughout the play. The playwright uses both of the characters to impact Vivian in different ways. Although Vivian never comes out and says it, it is understood by the reader that both Jason and Susie’s attitudes impacted her under tragic
Maybe it was the lack of connection or affection with her mother that caused Jeannette to include the parts she did. She tells more stories about her dad doing more positive things than negative, so when he did good things they stood out substantially. I think that some of the negative situations with Jeannette’s mother traumatized her as a child, so she clings onto those memories, rather than the good ones. Most students in my class agree with me, while some have their different
In conclusion I fully believe that that abuse and bullying have a lot to do with how a person reacts. Ultimately it would be the argument Nature vs Nurture. While I don’t believe that abuse is the only thing that leads to actions like this is does have a major effect on many notorious serial killers. So in the case of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein it would make sense that people 's reactions and treatment of the creature could lead to the cause of the actions the creature took in the
She acts in a caring manner to everyone’s face, but when she is alone, she becomes a heartless woman, determined to reveal what she knows. Miss Strangeworth is the one causing the distress in her community, yet she acts oblivious as to what is bothering everyone. She shows her extreme deceitfulness by attempting to ease Helen Crane’s concern about her child by saying “Nonsense… some of them develop… more quickly than others” (Jackson, 1941, p. 167). This is deceitful because she is aware that there is something different about the child and instead of voicing that, she consoles the mother, only to subsequently shatter her in an anonymous letter. Additionally, Miss Strangeworth cleverly utilizes the most common paper and envelops all townspeople use for her letters.
The trials, society’s beliefs, and the killing of innocent people all cause The Crucible to get its name. The people’s different beliefs were the main cause for these severe trials to happen. Sadly, there are still other “crucibles” going on in our world today that have caused beliefs to become severe events. With all the events in the play, Arthur Miller was able to show the real meaning of a
She has also lied about many things on multiple occasions in which causes an extreme amount of suspicion. For example, Abigail harshly threatens the girls with the fact that she is capable of killing them. The group of girls, deciding that keeping quiet is far better than being murdered,
Either way, Louise knows that she should be upset. At first, she does start crying, but after having some time to herself, she begins to whisper “Free!” (Chopin 426). Louise understands that she has this new-found freedom from the oppression of Brently, and that is why she seems both happy and upset. Even though he loved her, he still oppressed her. This leads to the conclusion that even though Brently was kind with his “tender hands” (Chopin 426) he still had the ability to oppress his wife even if he did not mean to.
Murder is highly regarded as one of man’s greatest sins, but nonetheless has been extremely prevalent throughout human history. There are many different reasons one might kill someone, such as for pleasure, with malice, or even as a punishment. In some instances it occurs on a large scale, such as the Jewish Holocaust or in cases of war. Despite how commonplace murder seems in human society, the vast majority believe it is undeniably wrong and that only someone who is mentally ill could commit such a disturbing crime. In Edgar Allan Poe’s A Cask of Amontillado and William Faulkner’s A Rose for Emily, the reader is shown how both main characters Montresor (A Cask of Amontillado) and Emily (A Rose for Emily) commit homicide and how the story
This is the case with Susanna, who is the autobiographical main character of the book. She provides a perfect reason as to why it is important that mental illness must be talked about more. Susanna is admitted to the McLean Hospital after she attempts suicide and is then diagnosed with borderline personality disorder. She is at first convinced that there is nothing wrong for her, which is something that many patients go through, and is one of the important reasons that mental illness should be discussed more. Susanna says “I was trying to explain my situation to myself.
Postpartum depression takes a toll on many new mothers and suffer from this illness at many different degrees. In Charlotte Gilman’s short story “The Yellow Wallpaper,” the speaker in the poem suffers from the depression but her husband does not think much of it so her condition proceeds to get worse. In the “Yellow Wallpaper,” the speaker portrays that postpartum depression, is not taken seriously back in the late nineteenth century and not understood in full capacity, until recently. Back in the late nineteenth century, postpartum depression was not much of a concern to physicians. The speaker’s husband, John is a doctor that doesn’t think much of his wife’s condition.
Have you ever seen horror movies that introduce scary, and crazy serial Killers? When you think about it, murderers don’t just kill to kill, there is a reason to their acts. Most have a traumatic backstory that changed their life. The content the authors decided to use for the theme of the stories are how isolation affect people, the society against mental illnesses, and the mistreatment of women.

many times, these “abnormal" people repeat their actions, not only because they might enjoy their actions, but also mental problem block them understanding how horrible and extreme their actions really are. In the stories “The Cask of Amontillado” by Edgar Allen Poe and “A Rose for Emily” by William Faulkner, both Montresor and Emily they killed a man without significant reasons. In both stories, the main characters can easily be classified as psychotic, from their disturbing behavior patterns and the actions committed by both individuals. In the story of "Emily Rose".

However, in many ways, Harper Lee failed. There are still many examples of racism long after her book was written. In the article, The Need for Change, it states, “In 1957 the town of Tuskegee gerrymandered black residents outside the city limits to make them ineligible to vote.” While it is obvious that Harper Lee’s novel, To Kill a Mockingbird, made a giant impact on today’s society, recent history says that it didn’t make enough of one. Despite everything so many inspirational people have said and done throughout history, society continues to display blatant and hidden examples of racism and discrimination. It is highly controversial whether or not Harper Lee achieved her goal when writing her novel, with valid arguments on either side.
Emily’s Mental Deterioration After getting over the initial shock of finding out that the mysterious woman that everyone was talking about was going to sleep each night with a decaying body next to her, it makes sense for the reader to question her mental state. If the reader took a closer look at the town’s description of her, they will realize that as time went on, Emily’s will power began to deteriorate. When she was young, she was the topic of everybody’s conversation, however, she did not let that bother her and walked down the streets with her head held high. Emily took over the old house after her father’s death and kept a few servants around to keep the house tidy, nonetheless, the outside of the house was not kept in the best of conditions. She had someone who took care of her plants, but other than that, the rest of the house was peeling and the once white paint that encircled her house began to turn yellow.

She does not accept her fathers death for three days; she also refuses to pay taxes to the town of Jefferson . With the changes to the newly added sidewalk brings Homer Barron’s company to the town. Also in “A Rose for Emily,” Emily is a symbolic figure of how old southern traditions are slowing dying off and yet
