They just went one day to the next with Albert giving the orders and Celie carrying out these orders.
Olsen adds blame on the government for why the narrator’s husband left by telling us that this happened before the Work Progress Administration, as to say it is the government’s fault for acting too late. When the narrator finally finds a job, she could not get one with hours well enough to be with her child. The narrator loved the way her baby reacted to the lights, colors, and music and was understandably crushed that she had to leave her baby with a neighbor so she could work (Olsen, Paragraph 8). Olsen uses this to blame the government for not coming up with a plan to help single mothers... ... middle of paper ... ...he ironing board,” that is, she hopes Emily learns her self-worth and does not allow herself to care more about getting wrinkles out of clothes than caring for her children. Olsen used Emily as an example of how the government cares more about business than people, thus why I believe she sustained an attack on a heartless, bureaucratic government in “I Stand Here Ironing.” She writes about how the government left the narrator to fend for herself and her child when her husband left her to escape the poverty they were in.
When others did not have anyone around to share their feelings, Truth could come to god and pray which helped her to never lose hope. Faith not only gave purpose to her life but also defined right and wrong which some people cannot differentiate that well. Faith was like a guide in a dark forest for Truth when she did not know where to move. It helped her ease the burden of pain, hatred, and other hard feelings and replace them with conformity and forgiveness. It was not the type of conformity that made her accept whatever happened to her though, as she still fought for her and her children’s rights.
They do this because their mother must win her inheritance back after she does a disgraceful thing.

Her relationship with God was thoroughly challenged throughout the novel, but she prevailed. Hester was also consistently selfless throughout The Scarlet Letter. Hester Prynne is a saint simply based on these three statements alone. Hester was willing to do whatever was necessary to make sure that her punishment wouldn’t defeat her. She took every challenge that was thrown at her and used them to overcome the very obstacles they placed in her life.
Praying to God was always second nature for Immaculée and a part of who she was. At a young age she agreed with her father when she was told that one could never pray too much. She worshiped her parents almost as much as she worshiped God and learned to have a go... ... middle of paper ... ...e words to share with him, which just goes to show again exactly how strong of a person she was. Immaculée answers the guard’s bewildered questions with a very simple, yet powerful, line to end the final chapter: “Forgiveness is all I have to offer” (Ilibagiza 204). She probably never said something so true again in her life.

Jane Eyre has a tough childhood when under the guidance of Mrs. Reed at Gateshead Hall as she was not Mrs. Reeds real daughter. "I [Jane] knew that he was my real uncle [Mr. Reed]" but Mr. Reed had died and made Mrs. Reed promise "that she would rear and maintain me [Jane] as one of her own children." Mrs. Reed treats Jane as a total outsider and with very little respect at all. "Take her [Jane] to the red-room, and lock her in there", this was said by Mrs. Reed to Bessie and Abbot when Jane and Master John Reed had been fighting. Mrs. Reed did not ask for an explanation to why either of them had been fighting, she just automatically blamed it on Jane and she was the one punished, as always.
