She oftens talks about Everett and how saintly he is because he is the only white person that will go near them. On the other hand, she does not treat the blacks in her town nicely and tries forgiving them although they did not do anything. Also, Mrs. Merriweather makes a comment saying "at least we don’t have the deceit to say to ‘em yes you’re as good as we are but stay away from us. Down here we just say you live your way and we’ll live ours”(149). What Mrs. Merriweather doesn't know is that blacks can't just go about their way of life in Maycomb.
Faulkner’s story demonstrates totally different plot: there is an own main character, her mental disorder and its consequences for the society. In the case of Emily Grierson the problem appeared to be in the inherited disorder, as “people in our town, remembering how old lady Wyatt, her great-aunt, had gone completely crazy at last” (Faulkner 4); and the citizens’ attitude. Miss Emily felt a pressure from people because of own origins and behavior; and these conditions finally made her to kill Homer Barron, an only potential opportunity for marriage after her father’s death. After the crime Miss Emily was not able to get rid of the body and continued to live with it until her own death. It looked like Baron became the only victim of the character’s madness here.
It is obvious to the reader that Fowler is attempting to build credibility utilizing outdated information. This lends the reader to believe there is a lack of current evidence to support Fowler’s claims, therefore, she loses credibility she might have had (Fowler, 2016, p. S9). Furthermore, when Fowler (2016) utilizes evidence such as “the 1926 “suggested code” it leaves her readers confused as to how Fowler has any relevance (p.S9). None of her readers can view her as credible because she never cites any of the current ethics policy. The lack of up to date information ultimately is a detriment to Fowler’s article, thus leaving her audience
To give one example of manipulation, Flannery O'Connor, Georgia State author of "A Good Man Is Hard to Find", writes that "You wouldn't shoot a lady, would you?"(421). The grandmother is trying to make the misfit vulnerable, even though he has already killed everyone but her. She's begging the misfit for her life. Every one of those people would still be alive if it was not for the grandmother. She did not have much hope left anyways for her life because she annoyed the misfit with her ugly and selfish ways.
And the jury being white means he has no chance at winning, it’s truly sad, but during the time of the trial that 's just how society works. But, nevertheless this is how the times are and a black person never really has a chance in the court system, because they weren’t treated the same as white people. Another time that it is very clear that people don’t treat Tom the same as white people is when people refer to him as a “nigger.” The first example of this is at the Finch landing on Christmas when Scout and Cousin Francis get into a fight after Francis says something to Scout about Atticus, “He’s nothin’ but a nigger-lover” (Lee 83). This quote very clearly shows that people treat Tom differently when Cousin Francis says
From the beginning of the story, Moira has strong beliefs against everything that Gilead stands for and escapes the Center because of her disapproval of the system.

Lady Macbeth was feeble and let her guilt drive her to the point of insanity and suicide, unlike her husband, who was determined to die fighting. As Macbeth fights Macduff in the final battle, he cowardly says he does not want to fight him because he already killed his family, “But get thee back; my soul is too much charged/With blood of thine already.”
Hakim doesn’t immediately pick up on Maggie’s behavior and continues trying to make unwelcome advances. Maggie’s personality is one of apprehension and suspicion toward anyone but her mother. The mood stays the same as Dee, Mama, Maggie and Hakim-a-barber sit down together to talk and Dee announces to the family that she has changed her name to Wangero Leewanika Kemanjo with the reasoning that she refuses to have the name of the people who oppressed her. Mama doesn’t know how to react and is slightly puzzled because her daughter is throwing away her family name. When Dee (Wangero) began taking things that belonged to her mother in order to decorate her new house, the mood changed quickly from bewilderment to acrimony when Dee finally went too far.
She decides to travel to locate her son who she gave up when she was younger. She does not know where her son was sent by the nuns, after being forced into signing the adoption papers. Her travels lead her closer to an epiphany whereas Evelyn’s travels bring her back into her reality.

She is very different to Laura and Evelyn in the way that she is dependent on Martin.
Similarly to Lennie, Curley’s wife also feels left out and different from everyone else. She is not considered a “normal” wife, or have a “normal” hope for her future. Most people during this time hoped to get married and become a housewife; Curley 's wife aspired to be an actress and only married Curley when it did not work out. Curley’s wife told Lennie, “I ast her if she stole it, too, an’ she said no. So I married Curley (Steinbeck 88).” She thought her mom had stole the letter she was waiting for from an agent who could get her into her career; she assumed her mom stole it because she thought her mom would have wanted her daughter to do what “normal” women do.
The reason she had a very big impact on this tragedy, is because she went to the Friar and got a sleeping drug. It made everyone think she was dead. It especially made Romeo very sad, he thought about killing his self. The next character in the book “Romeo and Juliet” that also had a very devastating impact on the tragedy was Romeo. He thought that Juliet was dead,(which she wasn’t) so Romeo stabbed and killed himself.
