As Hagar looks back on her life she never realizes that she is being cruel to both of her brothers when Dan is dying. “'I can't, Matt.' I was crying, shaken by torments he never even suspected, wanting above all else to do the thing he asked, but unable to do it, unable to bend enough.” (Laurence 25) Hagar never realizes that she is only thinking of herself in this family situation.

Hagar's pride stops her from helping Dan because Hagar prides herself on not being weak and for her to put on the shawl it would remind of Hagar of her “meek woman” she calls her mother.

Oedipus seemed to feel more guilt in what he did than Jocasta. Oedipus still lived even though he is blind and he would never be able to see, but he will always hear what people have to tell him.

Jocasta feels the guilt that she wished she can fixed things, but Oedipus had already killed her first husband to be able to get with her.
While Janie’s Nanny forces her into marrying Logan Killicks for security; Logan also lacks love and compassion for Janie and silences her. Janie cannot use her voice when she marries Logan Killicks because of her Nanny. Although Janie knows “exactly whut” she wants to say; expressing her voice is “hard to do” (Hurston 8). From the beginning, Logan does not resemble her perfect pear tree love, which to Janie means a man who instills confidence into his wife and listens to her voice. Logan falls short of fulfilling that dream as he isolates her from the community, leaving her with no voice whatsoever.
