She feels the pressure of not having the financial stability to support her home, children, and lifestyle; therefore she resents her children and her husband. “Children who are rejected by their parents experience more personality disorders and behavior problems in adolescence and adulthood than those whose parents accept them” (Erkan, 2010). Sadly, this was the case with Paul because of his mother’s lack of acceptance for him. Due to the fact that the mother could ... ... middle of paper ... ...be the death of a person.

Ellen Foster lived through a disturbed childhood. Within that unique childhood, there is a few things I can relate to like the resembles of Ellen to her parents, the lack of love and affection from her parents, and a fragile and feeble mother. Ellen Foster’s grandmother despises her because she sees Ellen’s father in Ellen. Ellen’s grandmother tells her, “All I know is when I look in your face I see that bastard and everything he did to my girl” (Gibbons 78). Ellen also fears that she is turning into her dad.
With her observation she has noticed that Medea is literally wasting away since she has learned about her husband’s marriage, never moving her eyes from the ground. It is also at this point that readers get a hint of foreshadowing as the Nurse says, “And she hates her children now and feels no joy at seeing them; I fear she may contrive some untoward scheme; for her mood is dangerous nor will she brook her cruel treatment; ….for dreadful is her wrath” (Lines 14-18). The Nurse speaks about the way she has seen Medea look at her children. Since this betrayal came from their father, she despises them in a way as she no longer feels joy or happiness seeing them. With worry, the nurse explains what she thinks Medea will create, a scheme, to get revenge in a way that might either hurt her children or the husband and his royal bride.

"She married for love, and the love turned to dust. She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them." (407) Lawrence asserts that because Hester is dissatisfied with her life, and refuses to compromise on the lifestyle she expects, she becomes preoccupied with searching for material comfort. However, the "failure made deep lines come into her face" (407), and gradually turns the center of her heart into "a hard little place that could not feel love, not for anybody." (407) Hester describes her husband as an "unlucky husband" (408).
His mother could be perceived as androgynous, which means having both female and male type qualities or even personalities. In a few of the books Hemingway wrote, he gives someone the impression that he hated his mother. He referred to her as a 'dominating shrew,' meaning she was selfish and only thought of herself. His mother considered herself pure and proper, and became very upset when anything 'disturbed' her view of the world as beautiful. Anything painful, or disgusting, she thought was not lady like.

Her behavior of being disappointed is getting really flirtatious to other guys but she also gets that way because her husband doesn’t really talk to her nor does nothing with her so she gets lonely without him. I think that Curly’s wife and Curly shouldn’t have got married because they don’t like each other and they can’t stand each other. The book “Of Mice and Men” is important because it teaches people how hard lives are when they are disappointed are they are lonely and it also teaches people how hard it is living in the great depression was.
