Even more, she intentionally rejects Willard Pretty Dog as a lover after she learns that she's pregnant with his child. Aside from her self-determined inner human, Ida is known to be very stubborn. Manipulated and betrayed by people she trusted, Ida commits herself to withdrawing from the world and refuses to interact except on her own terms. Her silence creates confusion and misunderstanding in the lives of the children she raises, and this confusion and misunderstanding are in turn passed on to Rayona. Ida is primarily a static character, unlike Christine, Ida does not grow and change.
Evelyn accuses Lil as being The Ratcatcher: “You made me betray her.” To which Lil responds “I got you through it.” This shows just how untrustworthy Evelyn is of other people because of her past, being sent away by her parents and was left to ultimately believe that they had forgotten about her. This paragraph and the last shows that however close Evelyn is to people, she will always have this issue with trusting people, and it is likely that her subconscious mind believes that everyone she comes close to has taken her away from something – freedom. This links to The Ratcatcher’s significance, as he is constantly taking away children’s freedom, and throughout the play Samuels presents this character via Evelyn constantly. In scene one, an authority figure, the Officer, is the voice of The Ratcatcher, and I believe that in this particular moment of the play the Officer isn’t the only Ratcatcher. The train itself is taking Eva away, so here The Ratcatcher is presented as both this intimidating man and an object, not living.
She thought that herself was the problem, which made T rye aggressive and it was her fault not T-rays.

She had to stay inside with Rasheed and was physically and mentally beaten by him.
As Hannah becomes a mother herself and a mother being the first model of love that the children experiences, she emotionally detaches herself from Sula as she was detached from her mother. Sula is able to shape her ego and separate herself from her family after she overhears her mother’s conversation: "You love her, like I love Sula. I just don't like her". Hannah not representing an admirable empathetic mother figure makes Sula assert control over her identity through the inability of connecting with other people as an adult. She is able to find her autonomy and independence denying responsibilities and attachment to anything.
More and more we have been hearing the wishful voices of just such perpetual adolescents, the voices of women scarred by resentment not of their class position as women but at the failure of their childhood expectations and misapprehensions. "Nobody ever so much as mentioned" to Susan Edmiston "that when you say 'I do,' what you are doing is not, as you thought, vowing your eternal love, but rather subscribing to a whole system of right, obligations and responsibilities that may well be anathema to your most cherished beliefs." To Ellen Peck "the birth of children too often means the dissolution of romance, the loss of freedom, the abandonment of ideals to economics." A young woman described on the cover of a recent issue of New York magazine as "the Suburban Housewife Who Bought the Promises of Women's Lib and Came to the City to Live Them" tells us what promises she bought: "The chance to respond to the bright lights and civilization of the Big Apple, yes. The chance to compete, yes.

Intrinsically, Victor’s inability to neither comprehend his responsibility, nor feel compassion for the pain he has caused abets his corruption. While the monsters words are able to move him, he remains unable to see beyond the “filthy mass that moved and talked”. He can be seen as an emotional cripple, insensitive to anyone’s suffering but his own. He is introverted, frequently focusing on his own despair to the exclusion of others. Arrogance and conceit prevents him from considering himself really blamable.
Rejecting a man whom a woman did not love was rebellious and unheard of during this time. Elizabeth Bennet did not fit the generalization of the women living in a patriarchal society whose sole purpose in life was finding a suitable candidate for marriage. Elizabeth Bennet is her father’s favorite child. When Elizabeth is departing for Kent her father entreats “Until you or your sister Jane returns…” Mr. Bennet has a high regard for his daughter’s intelligence and wit. In sharp contrast Mrs. Bennet has little value for these qualities “Elizabeth was the least dear to her of all her children” (Austen).
This is portrayed clearly in all three of the novels. In Harriet the Spy, In Matilda, neglect from her parents stems from pure greed, allowing them to overlook the briliance of their young daughter. This is a clear point made in the story, emphasized by the author's introduction of the parents when he says "Occasionally one comes across parents... who show no interest at all in their children... the parents looked upon Matilda in particular as nothing more than a scab" (6). He also mentions how parents who neglect their kids in such a way are "far worse than the doting ones" (6). As the author mentions, the parent's neglect for their daughter stems from pure greed.
