Antoinette had no one belonging to her age group or class that she could associate with. For the most part, the young girl is very isolated and alone, quite like her mother. Utter lon... ... middle of paper ... ...umstances of the lives that Annette and her daughter lead in Coulibri serve as the foundation for their insanity. The reader cannot attribute their downfall to a genetic trait, but must instead understand that the process of going insane would not have started if their life at the beginning of the novel was not so lonely and miserable. Fate is cruel to these two individuals, and the cruelty of the Negroes is the only human cruelty inflicted on Annette and Antoinette at Coulibri, thus their lunacy begins as a result of both sources.
She was a peculiar woman, never married and never looking. The Griersons held themselves very high in their community and thought of themselves as better than others. It is through this conditioning that Emily first begins to train her mind to abolish separation. She believed that if her family was her only suitable associates, she best not let them leave her sight. Emily rarely left the house and did not socialize with the ladies or men of her town.
After reading Wilbur’s poem multiple times the reader can notice a theme with ... ... middle of paper ... ...ewhat reserved like the narrator in “The Writer”, usually watching me and my sister and rarely speaking his feelings unprovoked. “The Writer” and “High School Senior” by Richard Wilbur and Sharon Olds, respectively, are two poems that speak about a parents child growing up and finding themselves. The storyteller in “The Writer” watches his daughter explore the liberties associated with maturing as she writes a story. The narrator in “High School Senior” describes her thoughts as her daughter prepares to depart for college, and describes the immense love and connection she has with her daughter. Both authors attempt a similar theme and show affection for their daughters, as well as their views of life and growing up, using like and unique literary devices and techniques from the other two create two poems with many similarities written in different ways.
Susan was Emily's personal critic; as long as Emily was writing she asked Susan to look her poems over. Emily Dickinson was affected by her life for several reasons. One of the reasons was that she was never married, though she went through many serious relationships, she never settled down. Another reason that she was affected by her life was that her mother was not “emotionally accessible”. She was not close to her mother and never shared any of her feelings with her, which most daughters feel they can.
Her mother, Mary on the other hand was a stay at home mother. Gilman, her mother, and her brother lived their lives in poverty because Frederick left soon after Gilmans birth and thereafter provided little financial or emotional support. Charlotte Perkins Gilman was a complicated person and this comes through in the text.SIMONE. Born in the wrong time, her mindset and personality would fit well in the twenty-first century, but she was perceived as abnormal in her own time. Of course, the irony is that, by being average if she lived today, she never would have had cause to write the story that made her famous.

This remained her home until she passed away in December of 1848 at the age of thirty. Both of Emily's parents influenced her literary education. Her mother published one essay, and her father published four books and a little poetry. In 1821, Maria died of cancer, leaving Emily and her four siblings motherless. Her sister, Elizabeth, came to live as a housekeeper and was responsible for training the girls in the household arts.
Edna’s marriage is not a loving one, neither she, nor her husband have an emotional connection to each other. Edna goes about her life as a mother and wife in a mechanical fashion, she doesn’t have the mind for it and it’s obvious that her current position where she wants to be although at first she doesn’t see it yet. Edna most likely has never experienced any sort of love or connection with anyone. She doesn’t seem to think very highly about her husband, father, or sisters. Her love for her children is flighty at best.
She has no education, no wealth to fall on and as we read the novel we also discover she has no morals. Even though at some point Dreiser claims that Carrie is "the victim of the city’s hypnotic influence"(Dreiser, 79) it becomes clear that in fact she is not a helpless victim by any means – she just simply goes along with anything and anyone who comes along. Tired and disappointed with her early days at a low paying hard work Carrie chooses to leave her sister – the only real family she has in the city – and goes off with a Drouet, a man she just recently met on the train. Carrie knew nothing ...
All of her family and close friends were saved during her childhood, but she never experienced God 's calling. It is not as though she did not want to be converted. She wrote, "Tis a dangerous moment for any one when the meaning goes out of things and Life stands straight--and punctual--and yet no signal comes" in an undated prose (academic.brooklyn.cuny.edu). This is believed to be a reference to never receiving a signal from God. The fact that she never really believed in God makes Him an ironic topic for many of her poems.
