Charlotte Bronte tells a riveting story through her novel Jane Eyre. The book is about Jane Eyre’s life from childhood to adulthood. Jane is an orphan that lives with an evil aunt.

Kaye Gibbons’ experiences as a child are the foundations for this breathtaking saga of a young girl’s tragic memories of her childhood. As with Ellen, Gibbons’ parents both died before she was twelve-years-old forming the basis of the plot and themes of this novel. The fond memories she possessed of her mother and the harsh ones of her father are reflected in the thoughts and actions of Ellen. The simplistic and humble attitude that both Gibbons and Ellen epitomize in the novel is portrayed through diction and dialogue throughout the novel allows the audience to gain a better understanding and personal compassion for both the character and author. 	The novel is written in a short, choppy sentence structure using simple word choice, or diction, in a stream of consciousness to enable the reader to perceive the novel in the rational of an eleven-year-old girl.
During childhood, full intellectual capacity has not yet been reached. Due to this, it is unreasonable to think that a child would be able to fully grasp the exact meaning of a literary piece. As an alternative, their mind will focus in on certain portions or details, and they will use those elements, whether they are good or evil, to guide their imaginations in developing their own understanding of the piece. When I was a child, my mother read Rumpelstiltskin to me many times. This particular fairy tale sticks out to me, because after reading it, my mind was not absorbed by the happiness of the miller’s daughter being able to keep her baby, it was instead absorbed by the cruelty of Rumpelstiltskin, the imp that was planning on taking the baby away.
"The color is hideous enough, and unreliable enough, and infuriating enough, but the pattern is torturing (244)." The yellow represents her postpartum depression. She had gotten the depression after she had the baby and was locked in a room to treat her depression because that 's what they thought was best at that time. The yellow also represents jealously
“[T]he evil which she [inherits] from her [mother] must be great indeed, if a noble woman [does] not grow out of this elfish child.” (62) Pearl is born out-of-wedlock and adultery. She has to live with that sin all of her life. Hester fears that it will be her fault if Pearl does not grow up into someone with a good heart. All of Hester’s grief from her sinful act with Dimmesdale transfers into Pearl to give her a “demon ori... ... middle of paper ... ...earl knows that this is mean and she doesn’t like it when people stare at her and Hester and say mean things to them.

However, later in the text Constancia realizes how her grandmother feels, and eventually starts to feel guilty. On paragraph 18 and 19 it says "'Your grandmother says to tell you that of all the hurtful things you can do to a person, the worst is to make them feel as if they are worth nothing.' I can feel myself shrinking right there in front of her. But I can’t bring myself to tell my mother that I think I understand how I made Abuela feel. I might be sent into the old lady’s room to apologize, and it’s not easy to admit you’ve been a jerk—at least, not right away with everybody watching."
In Crane's translation, Myrrha considers herself "most depraved" (on-line). All of these revelations compel readers to feel sorry for the girls in their situations; they seem to be victims of their desires. Byblis and Myrrha both denounce their passions. After Byblis awakes from dreaming intimately about her brother, she claims she would never want to see this scene in daylight (Mandelbaum 308). Later in her speech, she refers to her incestuous pursuit as a "forbidden course" and to her burning desires as "obscene, foul fires" (309).
Lady Macbeth’s soliloquies reveal that she is a blackhearted guilt plagued hag, and they allow the audience to be privy to important information about her; if other characters had been aware of her inner thoughts, they would have perceived her in a much darker light. Lady Macbeth’s first soliloquy occurs in Act 1 Scene 5. In this soliloquy the audience quickly figures out that Lady Macbeth is quite a conniver. Her first soliloquy reads: Make thick my blood, Stop up th’ access and passage to remorse, That no compunctious visitings of nature Shake my fell purpose, nor keep peace between Th’ effect and it! (42-46) The audience immediately realizes that Lady Macbeth doesn’t want her conscience or compassion to halt her devious scheme.
Although Pearl changes, she always symbolizes evil. Pearl symbolizes evil in the story by representing God’s punishment of Hester’s sin, symbolizing the guilt and the scarlet letter that controls her behavior, and defying Puritan laws by being cheerful and associating with nature. Pearl represents God’s punishment by her mocking and nagging of Hester. Throughout the novel she sometimes seemed to her mother as almost a witch baby (Matthiessen 104). She is a baffling mixture of strong emotions with a fierce temper and a capacity for evil.
