Problems and Solutions Clones are viewed as “its” or “dirty animals” and are often killed for another person to survive. A clone also has no ability to learn like a human and they form in animals not humans. In the novel The House of Scorpions by Nancy Farmer, Matt is a clone and the only person that treated him fairly his whole life was his guardian Celia. Celia would be often gone at work and Matt would be home alone. When Matt met Maria she was very kind to him because she did not know he was a clone.
The Walls were in situations that the needed help, and no one was able to do anything about it.

When it comes to his family, Jason aligns his ideals with and draws his inspiration almost entirely from his mother and Julia. While certain scenes present the father in a tolerable light, the chapter ‘Souvenirs’ stands as a symbol for the discourse in their father-son relationship. Jason’s dad is actually far to similar to his son, as shown by the quickness with which he shirked from an altercation with his boss, to serve as a proper role model. In the later half of that same chapter, however, Jason recounts “I had no idea mom could be so bulletproof”(193) when depicting how she stood up to the spoiled, highschool thieves. Far more than just a juxtaposition to the father’s frailness, the mother’s action serve as an idealized metaphor for Jason’s own struggles.
The first person point of view offers the reader a look into Ellen’s emotions, enabling the reader to feel the despair and pain that Ellen must suffer through before she dies. On the other hand, The Storm’s narration is that of 3rd person omniscient. The reader is not able to get into the thoughts and feelings of Calixta. Although they are there when Calixta is worried about her husband and child being stuck in the storm and when she is being pleasured by Alcée, they do not feel those emotions with her “She was a revelation in that dim, mysterious chamber; as white as the couch she lay upon” (Chopin 2). Giving the reader the ability to experience Ellen’s emotion versus just having the reader there while Calixta is with her lover is what makes the narration of The Jilting of Granny Weatherall create such a believable

When he refuses, she runs away and leaves him to his fate with no regard to what will happen to him, only what will happen to her. The Crucible demonstrates that people will always leave anyone if it means they stay safe or get what they want.

Rough Draft 2 Throughout “Iphigenia in Aulis” and “The Outsider”, both protagonists of the short stories are treated as monsters. In “Iphigenia in Aulis”, Melanie is “strapped into the chair, and she can’t move her hands or her feet or her head” (Carey 163). This treatment and daily rituals convey a great sense of precaution, even for a little girl, from her jailers fearing her capabilities. Melanie tries to defuse the situation and put them at ease without much success. As for the unnamed narrator in “The Outsider”, which will be referred to as THE OUTSIDER, he describes his first encounter with normal civilization in which he had “scarcely had I crossed the sill when there descended upon the whole company a sudden and unheralded fear of hideous
The huts, the near cottages, and stately houses engaged my admiration … I hardly placed my foot within the door. The whole village was roused; some fled, some attacked me,until, grievously bruised by stones and many other kinds of missile weapons, I escaped to the open country ad fearfully took refuge in a low hovel.” Some may find it easy to identify with the monster, because he is a misunderstood being, led to live in isolation. This is not necessarily the case for many of the antagonists in Gothic novels such as Count Dracula and Mr Hyde, as they choose to live in isolation, however similarly with the monster in Frankenstein they live in isolation because of their unique appearances and the mere fact that they are supernatural beings but also the fact that they are capable of committing a treachery in public.
Another thing that led the narrator close to insanity was basically being isolated in the house.

After awhile she thought it was "discouraging not to have any advice and companionship." John spent most of his time in town because of serious cases and Jennie let her be alone when ever she wanted to be. When she was alone she said she would always cry I 've nothing and started to imagine things is the wallpaper.
