Simply maybe because sometimes she would feel confident, standing up to herself at times, but also when the other persona takes control, she becomes cold, filled with anxiety or maybe even depression and frustration. The other symbol is the next part of the previous one I wrote which is “I’m meaner than my demons, I’m bigger than these bones”, the singer tries to convince herself that she can indeed defeat her inner demons, with this she compares herself to madness, which is why she calls herself a demon, as big as the demon can be, she will always be a harsher and meaner side. But as the song goes she loses this, losing control of her emotions. While this song is bursting with metaphors I shall only explain three at most. One of these metaphors is: “they send me away to find them a fortune, a chest filled with diamonds and

These intensely unpleasant and relatable images help to reinforce the narrator 's sense of oppression within her life and through society 's expectations, as they all are haunting smells and colors that seem to linger all around, unable to broken from the pattern. This paper becomes increasingly more menacing as the narrator decreases in mental instability, its pattern becoming ghostly, only seen in certain lighting, then coming to resemble bars. The narrator begins to becomes obsessive over the "paper", believing it to be some kind of text only she can and must interpret. As her obsession grows, the paper begins to resemble the shape of a desperate woman, "stooping down and creeping about" (Pg.166) and the yellow pattern becomes reminiscent of bars on a cage, which is seen confining many women as they strangle themselves attempting to escape through the bars/ pattern. In this, Gilman masterfully creates the entrapping wallpaper as a mirror to society and its entrapment of women into an "acceptable" role.

Both Gustave Flaubert’s Madame Bovary, and Wilkie Collins The Woman in White depict female characters who are under emotional and physical distress, albeit for entirely different reasons. Emma Bovary’s confinement is self-induced, she is slowly dying from unfulfilled aspirations due to her own fundamental and eventual fatal error, in that she mistakes literature for life. Subsequently, Emma is confined in a world she finds tedious and monotonous. Ultimately, her ennui (Identities, p.20) becomes so severe that nothing she does can console her craving for excitement, as Flaubert tells us “domestic mediocrity drove her to sumptuous fantasies, marital caresses to adulteress desires” (101) and nothing she does matches the ‘’felicity, passion and rapture she finds so lovely in her books “(p.33). In comparison Collins The Woman in White tells the sensationalist tale of women who are confined through no fault of their own, from the beginning of the novel we are told, “This is the story of what a Woman 's patience can endure .
Guy Montag, firefighter, husband, and a truth seeker, goes through multiple barriers trying to figure out the questions no one dares to ask. Ray Bradbury portrays determination and a destroyed culture, to show how we are just on the road to what our future could become. Technology plays a major role in Fahrenheit 451; it's all over the place and they consist of brainwashing ads and trivial content that replays over and over again. Considering Mildreds condition, it's like a drug to her brain, very addicting but bad for her wellbeing. Having
