She does not get to enjoy the freedom which she truly desires. Desperation took over her life which led to her own death. Lastly, in the story of “The Chrysanthemums”, Elisa realizes there is no future in her marriage, which makes her understand her life has become a miserable one.

This is an example of how her husband doesn't like her learning and how she is dismissing the idea of having children because of that.

A guy needs somebody ------to be near him. He whined, a guy goes nuts if he ain’t got nobody.”(Page, 72) This quote in this book is talking about how anyone needs a person to... ... middle of paper ... ...talking about how Curly’s wife hates to stay in the house all day and doing nothing. Her behavior of being disappointed is getting really flirtatious to other guys but she also gets that way because her husband doesn’t really talk to her nor does nothing with her so she gets lonely without him. I think that Curly’s wife and Curly shouldn’t have got married because they don’t like each other and they can’t stand each other. The book “Of Mice and Men” is important because it teaches people how hard lives are when they are disappointed are they are lonely and it also teaches people how hard it is living in the great depression was.
For instance, women are the sole reason for all marital problems. If a woman runs away from an abusive husband, she is punished, and not the husband.

Compare and contrast the writers’ presentation of tormented mind in Rebecca and Birthday letters. Rebecca, which is a bildungsroman novel and Birthday letters both have elements of tormented minds which are effectively caused by the darker side of love, memory, honesty and betrayal. ‘Rebecca’ looks into the faults of the class structure and upper class society.

From Loneliness to Insanity in A Rose for Emily and The Yellow Wall-Paper In The Second Sex, Simone de Beauvoir states that within a patriarchal society "woman does not enjoy the dignity of being a person; she herself forms a part of the patrimony of a man: first of her father, then of her husband" (82-3). Both Emily Grierson in William Faulkner's "A Rose for Emily" and the narrator of Charlotte Perkins Gilman's "The Yellow Wall-Paper" are forced into solitude simply because they are women. Emily's father rejects all of her prospective mates; the husband of Gilman's narrator isolates her from stimulation of any kind. Eventually, Emily is a recluse trapped in a deprecated home, and the narrator in Gilman's story is a delusional woman confined to her bed. A study of the characterization and setting of "A Rose for Emily" and "The Yellow Wall-Paper" demonstrates how the oppressive nature of patriarchy drives the women in both stories insane.
