A negative relationship can, in fact, be the catalyst for a search for identity to emerge. It is often through these negative relationships that people seek alternate relationships that will help them on their journey of discovery. In Lonesome Howl, Lucy’s detrimental relationship with her family led her to start questioning who she was. Years of constant abuse led her to begin her search for identity. She felt, however, that she could not go on such a journey by herself.
Despite this difference, they are equally influenced by their mothers' philosophies, each sharing a desire to break away from their routine lives. Unfortunately, Hulga and Rose do not realize that what gives birth to this craving is also what makes them ill-equipped to handle the situations that set them on their individual courses of transformation. 2) The characterization of our protagonist Connie is vital to an understanding of her ripeness for seduction in Joyce Carol Oates' short story "Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?" Connie's youth and vanity, coupled with her antagonistic relationship with the members of her family, effectively set the stage for her seduction by the older Arnold Friend. 3) In Flannery O'Connor's "Good Country People," the cynical, rude, and world-weary Hulga believes herself to be on such a high philosophical and intellectual plane that she is without illusion.
After being caught and having been forced to wear a scarlet “A” representing her act of adultery, Hester tries to continue on with life along with her daughter, while being shunned by the townspeople of Boston, Massachusetts. During this time, Pearl had a big impact on Hester. Pearl was used as a physical representation and reminder of Hester’s sin, while also being a metaphorical mirror to the sins, but ultimately being the source of Hester’s strength. One of the main reasons for Pearl’s use in the novel was for Hester and the readers to remember Hester’s sin when looking at Pearl. In the story, the narrator expressed during the time that Hester and Pearl were walking to Governor Bellingham, that the red and gold colored clothing that Pearl was wearing, which Hester had made, was undoubtedly a significant reminder of Hester’s scarlet letter.

Hooper’s hatred for his own Mother peaks when he thinks to himself “He wished she were dead instead of his father” The phrase, “wish she were dead” conveys the fact that Kingshaw’s hatred for her is an extreme one, this is because he feels that he has been forgotten in place of Mr Hooper and Hooper . Also, the fact that he wants her to be replaced by his father, a person who he has never thoroughly met emphasises that he hates his mother who is suppose to be loving and caring more than anyone he has known. A point that is later made when in his mind Kingshaw exclaims, “he hated her more than Hooper now”. This exaggerates his hate for his mother even more as Hooper is Kingshaw’s worst enemy, this suggests that Kingshaw’s worst relationship is with his mother, potentially implying she is the reason for his death.
