He also highlighted the fact that southern blacks were loyal workers, AND that they built the South without going on strikes and labor wars, which were common in northern industrial society. All things considered, this argument was convincing. In reality, one-third of the South’s population was black, and held an economic weight in society especially because of the emancipation of slaves.

(The Shining, 30) Danny wonders if he would leave things would get better for his parents. The parents don’t appreciate the knowledge their son possesses as it disrupts their intellectual authority over their child. As explained in ‘The Gothic Child’, ‘excess feelings of bitterness’ prevail when a child is deserted by ‘their immoral, neglectful parents’ (Georgieva: 2013, p. xi). This links directly to Danny’s relationship with his father, as the possibility of Jack’s alcoholism and aggressive tendencies resulting in divorce is ‘the greatest terror of Danny’s life’, and in the source of great anxiety for him. This is further suggested as Danny first unlocks his psychic abilities whilst sensing the extreme strain on his parents’ marriage and “desperately… concentrating to understand” (Shining 40), further reiterating the relationship between neglectful familial relationships and the child’s susceptibility to the

Louisiana in the 1800s was riddled with slavery, and it was necessary to push an image into popularity in order to hide the immorality of the slave owner’s actions. This is explored in Desiree’s Baby by Kate Chopin. In her story, she writes about Armand’s emotions toward Désirée, “Moreover he no longer loved her, because of the unconscious injury she had brought upon his home and his name” (Chopin, 3). As a social elite, the need to hold his status and keep his family in favor of others had Armand ostracizing his love for Désirée. As was expected of the time, plantation owner’s had to broadcast certain opinions about people of color.

Jeffrey, while begging his owner to buy Dorcus, used reasoning to persuade his owner to buy his love. In the text, he uses reasoning such as him loving her, both of them are great servants, he and Dorcus making good, strong children, Dorcus being healthy, and can do a lot of work in a single day. Harrison, on the other hand, used force to get out of slavery.
