Even though they have been together in the past, the fact that they are not together at the time of the story shows how their relationship must have failed and therefore love is seen as unobtainable. He seems to place Daisy so high on a pedestal that she is in a way already unreachable. He loves her so much, with so much passion, worked so hard to be up to her standards (bought the house, throws all these parties…). However, she has never turned up to any of his parties or shown any interest in a certain Gatsby showing that love is unobtainable. Jordan mentions to Nick that “he half expected her to wander into one of his parties but she never did, then he began asking people casually if they knew her”.
She did not find that a marriage service generated love; she did not enable her husband to recapture his youth through hers; nor could she compensate for that by running his home in the manner of an experienced housekeeper.” This quote illustrates that Elias Strorm was very cruel to her that she died after her second child was born. She was a beautiful, young woman who Elias turned into a very dull person. She always wanted him to be happy and be a good person, but that did not happen, he was just unfair and unpleasant to everyone. To conclude Elias Strorm’s wife is a good supporter of her husband as well as Emily Strorm. The role of women does demonstrate bystanders and supporters of their husbands and family member.
Her father had said, “None of the young men were quite good enough for Miss Emily and such.” (364) Her father never allowed her to make her own decisions even when she was almost 30 years old. Many people think that maybe the reason why he was so strict with Miss Emily and why he put so much pressure on her could have traced back to her family. Emily’s family was a very noble family and her father had thought that they were the most prominent in the entire town and that no one else was fit for Miss Emily. Any time a man would come close to being a part of Emily’s life, her father would not allow it and he would chase them all off. Her father had kept her away from any experience with love that she might ever have known.
As an elderly man nears death, his daughter is persuaded to abandon her people’s tradition of looking after their “own”, because she cannot bear to watch her father die. The setting encourages the reader to think about the writer’s ideas, because the heat and drought reflect the deterioration of the old man’s life. He is a good man whose recollections show a full and significant existence. She takes him to a nursing home, but is sent away because of the colour of her father’s skin. His poor treatment there is more shocking because he has been drawn as a character who had, “worked hard” and ”owed nothing to any man.” Mrs Edwards, the daughter, is confused at first by the nun’s reaction to seeing her.
Only Daughter by Sandra Cisneros The title "Only Daughter" has several meanings to the author Sandra Cisneros. Her being the only daughter in her family meant that she had to work twice as hard to gain her father’s approval. It meant that she was excluded from playing with her brothers because they did not want to be seen playing with a girl. It meant that when she was older she was supposed to grow up get married and have children. It also meant Sandra had a different relationship with her father than her brothers.
Do the characters get what they deserve in the End? During the novella of mice and men Curley’s wife is alienated, spoken behind her back, called vile names and singled out from the rest of the ranch, since she is the only woman there. Throughout the novella she is constantly giving hints on how lonely she is even in her own marriage, by the end of the book she is accidentally killed and freed from the life she so dearly hated. However, another view on her death could be negative since when she dies she does not get the life she deserves for being kept in a place she doesn’t want to stay or even she does deserve her death since she is vile for not committing to her marriage vows by being a coquette. Curley’s wife is clearly a very unhappy
'(page 206) Winston’s feelings towards Julia have a huge transition.

Because of this, he hates her so much that if he ever has a chance he would kill her by throwing a cobblestone to her head. However, Julia is nothing like the other girl; instead of being orthodox, she has a very wild mind she is rebellious she hates the party as much as Winston does. These are all revealed by that piece of note she sent to Winston.
The Bundrens have not form of civilized communication. They always end up disagreeing with each other. This has created intense barriers in their family life and has pushed away the possibility of being a normal family. In the novel, one realizes that Addie’s children resent each other and they are always competing for their mothers love. "If everybody wasn’t burning hell to get her there, with Cash all day long right under the window, hammering and sawing at that…" (6) Clearly from this statement, Jewel felt that his family was exaggerating the issue of Addie’s death.
A woman who could go on day after day and never receive the smallest compliment from her beloved.” (p. 2735) Although the narrator believes that he is describing the relationship he imagines existed between the blind man and his wife the reader knows that the description more accurately describes the relationship between the narrator and his wife.
