The way in which events are organized in a story is important in conveying a message to the reader. In D.H. Lawrence's short story, The Horse Dealer's Daughter, the plotting of key events in Mabel's life contributes to the overall depressive effect and meaning. First, Mabel's mother dies, causing her to have extreme depression. Then, this depression leads her to seek suicide. Her seeking suicide unites her with Dr. Fergusson, who in turn becomes her lover in the end.
Salinger describes Muriel as “a girl who for a ringing phone dropped exactly nothing.” The references to Muriel as “a girl” are repeated throughout the story to signify her immaturity; her concern for trivial... ... middle of paper ... ...nd his own life. Many of these clues can be found in the story’s dialog. They suggest that Seymour’s suicide is the manifestation of an awakening gained through his war experience; he is separated from the shallow environment he lives in and can find no other escape. Perhaps Seymour commits suicide in an attempt to break through the barrier that separates him from Muriel and the rest of society. Or maybe Seymour’s mental faculties were damaged by his wartime experience, leaving him disturbed and unstable.

Yasmin Narcisa Narcisa was not a woman who was given to fits of anger, but her growing bitterness following Yasmin’s mysterious disappearance had cracked her begun to erode her normal temperament like the fissured soil of a dry field. She had become prone to visions, and had started to show signs of peculiar behavior. Eva and officer Santos Sosa had married two years after the unfortunate day when he and Detective Mendoza had announced the suspected death of her sister, Yasmin. Eva had joined forces with Santos in the search for the truth of her mysterious accident. During this time they had fallen in love and married to Narcisa’s disappointment.
Edna's Escape The Awakening Edna’s Escape The ending of Kate Chopin’s The Awakening is both controversial and thought provoking. Many see Edna Pontellier’s suicide as the final stage of her “awakening”, and the only way that she will ever be able to truly be free. Edna’s suicide, however, is nothing more than her final attempt to escape from her life. Edna Pontellier’s life has become too much for her to handle, and by committing suicide she is simply escaping the oppression she feels from her marriage, the suppression she feels from her children, and the failure of her relationship with Robert. Edna Pontellier’s marriage is a failure in her own eyes.
Blanche's first love was also taken from her. It seems that everyone she loves is dead except for her sister. Death plays a crucial role in Blanche's depression and other mental irregularities. While these circumstances are probably enough for the audience to feel sympathy for Blanche, Williams takes it a step further when we see Blanche's... ... middle of paper ... ...ehavior is after her and Stanley have an inappropriate encounter (possibly raped her).

Chopin died on August 22nd, 1904 from a cerebral hemorrhage, so she never experienced people admiring her novel. It was not until the 1960s when The Awakening was finally recognized and noted for the strong female heroines. Since The Awakening, Chopin was not able to see another one of her works published, but in 1969 her most graphic short story was finally published, “The Storm”. Even though Chopin... ... middle of paper ... ...ey resulted in her suicide leaving the reader with the deciding factor of whether her act was out of courage or selfishness. This illuminates how people will go to any extent to try to prove themselves to their own self.
When Blanche was younger, she lost her husband to suicide and she lost Belle Reve because several relatives died. This all had a significant effect on Blanche as a person. She tried to be someone, she is not to cover the truth. The paper lantern perfectly symbolizes Blanche because Blanche -just like the paper around the lantern- tries to dim the truth, she does not want anybody to find out about her past. If you take Blanche’s past in account, you can conclude that Blanche is a victim o... ... middle of paper ... ...tands that Blanche needs a shoulder to cry on.
A little after, Mrs. Mallard finally sees an opportunity of freedom from her husbands death. She is crying in her bedroom, but then she starts to think of the freedom that she now has in her hands. “When she abandoned herse... ... middle of paper ... ...dition, so the doctor thought that this weakness was the reason she died.What really killed her was being put back into the role that was forced and expected of her.

When Chopin was writing this short story back then marriage was not done for the mutual love for each other and that what it this seemed to be the situation she had in the story. Marriage back t... ... middle of paper ... ...e you would go into shock and that would stress out the heart. Unfortunately, mrs.mallards heart could not handle the shock. So she had died and also that is another point of view that could be taken from that story about her death. Alnemri 4 In conclusion, I believe that she had died of joy and that is what the narrator tried to portray to the reader.
