The mothers have a deeper connection with their culture because they were raised to be more traditional; they contain more wisdom that they have gained from their long lifetimes.

The daughters strive to find their identities in American culture and not in Chinese culture the way their mothers did. In the book, Lindo Jong was forced to marry the boy chosen for her by the matchmaker.
This quote at the middle of the story shows that Juliet tells her family and the nurse what they want to hear from her, meaning Juliet doesn’t have her own opinion, so her family takes this as an advantage so they could persuade Juliet that the Montagues are evil people. So, Juliet expresses that she’s angry about Tybalt’s death, and wants to avenge her family member (Tybalt). In relation to this, this expresses that she’s loyal to her family’s interests and doesn’t have her own opinion based on her experiences.

Linda, who is John’s elderly mother, was yearning to see the man who abandoned her and their child while Tomakin himself completely forgot or dismissed the existence of his family. When Linda first confronts Tomakin she enthusiastically expects him to somewhat remember him only to be tragically disappointed by the fact that she is completely unrecognizable to him; having changed due to age, Tomakin refers Linda as a “‘monstrous practical joke’” (Huxley 150). Ultimately, this is used to express how, in this society, women are seen as having no value after reaching an age of being elderly or after no longer holding physical beauty.

According to Gale, there is a possibility that “Roderick’s malady is a psychological reaction to an incestual relationship with his sister” ( gale ). So, burying her would eliminate the “evil” that has lasted between them for an extended period of time. The death of his sister brings joy to him, which caused many folks to raise their eyebrows on the discussion of the twins bond. Losing Madeline is losing fifty percent of the remaining Usher family lineage, but since Roderick is “suffering the physical and emotional consequences,” he does not, truly, care about his sister ( Gale ).
