In this scene, Curley’s wife talks to Lennie about her life before she meets Curley. Lennie tells her to leave but she responds by saying, “I get lonely...You can talk to people, but I can’t talk to nobody but Curley” (Steinbeck, pg 87). Curley’s wife always feels isolated and alone because
“I must stand quite alone, if I am to understand myself and everything about me. It is for that reason that I cannot remain with you any longer” (Ibsen 58). She stands up to herself and breaks out of the gender roles society is instilling on her and decides to go away. Nora tells Torvald that after eight years of marriage this is the first time they actually have a serious talk. She also says that he never loved her he just thought it was fun to love her (Ibsen 57).
For instance, Olivia just hides from her old friends when they start to change instead of working things out with them. They came back from summer break and seemed very different from Olivia, which she didn’t like. Instead of telling the girls that she just hid from them and stops being their friend eventually. This illustrates how Olivia doesn’t know how to be a friend - and because she doesn’t have many it shows how she has a tough life. High school can be hard enough as it is without having your friends by your side to help you through it.
“I remember the darkness,” she replied. I remember all of us kids of different ages sitting for hours in one room not really knowing what was going on other than it was something bad. How about you? What comes to your mind first?,” it was no Marti’s turn to ask. She was a bit surprised by her direct question as she knew Taya always refused to go deep into the painful topic, yet it was her who brought it up in the first place.
Irony is used to portray the perspective of both the child and the parents. To depict the parents perspective they say “we never thought about ourselves” when in the end, that is all the child’s parents did. From this, the parents fail to realize that the reason she left home was that she has always been alone. In the quote, “Never thought about themselves”, is incorrect because the fact is that the parents only thought about themselves. In the poem, it says “She’s….after living alone”, which means the child felt that she was alone even though she was living with her parents.
Gathering Blue was written by a Newbery Award Winner, Lois Lowry. The book starts off with a girl named Kira, who has a broken leg. This keeps her from doing a lot of things. Unfortunately, Kira has no siblings and her mother and father died, which makes her an orphan. This created a lot of controversy, whether or not Kira should stay in the village because she has no guardians to watch her.
Lastly Ruth tries really hard to be independent and doesn't accept the help she needs from others because just like orchids need water Ruth ends up needing the help she had denied. Also, Tan shows ‘silence’ as a symbol in The Bonesetter's Daughter because after Precious Auntie's incident she is unable to speak and leads a life in silence. Also for a week each year Ruth loses her voice for an unknown reason. Finally, when Ruth breaks her arm on the playground she is given the love and affection she wants from her mother. Ruth is afraid that if she starts talking she will lose the care she wants.
This proved when the narrator’s mother always tried to get the narrator to do work that appropriate for a lady instead of outside work, however it was not something that she enjoyed. The narrator also was not considered of real helper to her father because she was a female. This proved when her father introduced the narrator as ‘his new hired hand’ to a salesman, he replied, “I thought it was only a girl” (line 76, paragraph 10).This shows how the society view girl as ‘just a girl’ at that time and it means that their roles are not really significant in the society. As being said by Alexander Pope (1688-1744), “Most women have no character at all.” (Bressler, C.E., 2011). Next, from the statement “wait till Laird gets a little bigger, then you’ll have a real help” (line 94, paragraph 12), it shows that, even though the narrator had done more work than her younger brother, she was still under appreciated and her helps seem unimportant for her father.

All these people walking through Stephen 's Green are not looking at me, they are wondering how they
Official rank? “Retired for ill health.” ”(line 9-12), the mood swifts from loneliness into a distinct air of being indignant. From “where’s my name among the poets” and “official rank” we can clearly have an image of feeling anger and helpless. Moreover, we can notice Du Fu’s direct point of view is interesting, because he asks the reader’s personal opinion, which means his poem show the desire for understanding and his longing for a place in this chaotic world. From the line “ where’s my name among the poets?
