The poem’s intention is to tell the audience about a catastrophic experience that the author had suffered through. She describes herself alone in the burned house.

This risk is greater magnified through the fact that other people most likely did not have anything either and would most likely resort to stealing if necessary. Kathleens sense of safety is completely diminished. She looks up to her parents and tries to hold them, but her mom shuns her away because she is too busy fighting the dad.

To perhaps appease a god who cared more for the sufferings of man rather than the monument dedicated in His honour. Her ponderings give way to a darker view of religion and this is the beginning of her faith crumbling as she sees flaws within those prayers. She has lost her children and so the prayers that would normally give her hope have given her confusion and represented a darker side for her to believe. In conclusion the plague year has brought many of the characters to question their beliefs.
A place where there is absolute belief in religion and reproduction and where women are forced to cover themselves but at the same time are committing sinful sexual acts such as adultery sounds like a society which is inexplicable. The Handmaid’s Tale portrays a Biblical society named Gilead. The element allusion is used in the Handmaid’s Tale to show how higher officials can pervert the religion to their own benefit. Also the ceremony that takes place between the Commander, Offred and Serena Joy has another Biblical allusion. A part during the ceremony is where the commander sheepishly only reads parts of the Bible, and those parts only emphasize reproduction and childbearing – “It the usual story the usual stories.

While both “The Yellow Wallpaper”, story and movie explores the mystery behind the ‘wallpaper’ the representation of Charlotte (The Wife) differs in certain aspects. Having to watch the movie and also reading the story has led me to see the many differences in the character. However two main contrasts between them are the bedroom she rested in and her child.
