However, the overwhelming pattern in Chopin’s fiction seems to either satirize or undermine the worlds of her characters. One way in which she does this is through point of view.

Meanwhile, Mr. Jones heard a lot of noise going on outside while the animals were having one of their meetings, so he took a shotgun out to the barn and shot into the barn killing the “Old Major”. Because “Old Major” was the lead pig and was shot and slaughtered, the other pigs decided it was time for a Revolution. Soon after the shooting happened, the pig slaughterer tried to feed “Jessie” the sheepdog, the raw bones of “Old Major”. She knows it’s his bones and she refuses them and decides to walk away even though she was starving. The pigs were the leaders of all the farm animals and had all the power to make the rules.
While the use of negative female roles, adds to the theme of alienation. Alienation is a concurrent theme in many of the Faulkner’s novels. He presents us this theme clearly in Light in August with his descriptive choice of setting as we are walked through Jefferson from the Reverend Gail Hightower’s cabin to the mysterious estate of Joanna Burden. The slightly complicated plot tells the story of each character and how they reached to the present time of alienation. And his use of tone, misogynistic in nature, adds to the central theme.
Wilde used satire to get across his distain for traditional gender and marriage roles, and utilizes this in his play The Importance of Being Earnest. Meanwhile, another author who does the same is that of Virginia Woolf, who’s last novel, Between the Acts, uses satire through the techniques of parody and irony to get across her criticism on gender roles. Overall, both writers use satire in a unique and relevant way to get across their distain for gender roles in a Victorian society.

Literature is the superlative resource when one is attempting to comprehend or fathom how society has transformed over the centuries. Many written works—whether fictional or nonfictional—express the views of gender roles and societies’ expectations. Sylvia Plath’s The Bell Jar is an exemplary novel that explores these issues. Ester Greenwood was portrayed the superficial and oppressive values of the mid-twentieth century American society through her experiences of gender inequalities and social conformities. Plath’s own life was correspondingly mirrored in this novel; which in turn left the reader aware of the issues in her time period.

For within the novel, one experiences how Briony sees and feels her guilt toward Robby for her false accusations toward him. All throughout the book, this is present and this is what gives us the basis for which we can measure her “level” of atonement. Keeping this in mind, Virgina Woolf relies “heavily upon the interior monologue, adapted with modernist literary techniques, where she can explore the subjective realm of a character’s memories, thoughts and dreams” (Matus, 1), of her characters through the use of subjective narration. This indefinitely coincides with how McEwan develops his protagonist Briony, which, she comments on that she was the person who wrote the book and crafted all thoughts of her characters, Robbie, Cecilia and herself. A major example of this, is the interaction between the three of them in part 3, which was fictional because Briony was to cowardly to be able to go and confront her real atonement, yet instead, reflects back on it in her late 70’s.
