Dickens illustrates the fact that interpersonal and family relationships are forever changing, as remaining still only leads to tragedy. Her character draws in the reader as her peculiarity is mysterious, interesting and somewhat chilling as she is just that little bit different.

One evening while at home after observing that the laboratory and my masters quarters were empty I stayed awake waiting for him. I was stirred for a moment by a noise coming form the back door. I rushed to see if my master was using the back entrance and came face to face with who I knew must be Mr. Hyde. Pure evil was this man that stood before me. Evil like none I had ever seen before, it seem almost to seep right out of his pores.
While the garage is bare and empty the apartment is “crowded to the doors with a set of tapestried furniture entirely to large for it.” This quote also builds on the hypocrisy of the time as the rich are willing to over do their apartments while the poor have no choice. Fitzgerald also structures the chapter in such a way to build onto the contrast through out the novel. We see this as at the beginning of the
Exercise in Sensory Description Exercise 1 The stuffy damp air intruded right into my lungs when I slightly open the door. It must have been ages that nobody has ever step in here. The odor of decayed wood and dusty fabric has fulfilled the living room. I smell molded leather while I sneaked carefully through the ruptured sofa lying on the floor.

13. A positive look at hunting On the 13th of April, 2009, the police force of Hillbrow, Johannesburg arrived at the decrepit, grimy house of Jeffery Mills, who had been seen speaking to an exotic dancer just an hour before she had disappeared. Two of the officers stepped through the fragmented, red door into the lounge of what seemed like a mundane household. As the officers moved deeper into the house, they began to get the feeling that there was something not quite right with the odour of the room in which they were standing. The scent of decay and decomposition was over-whelming and both officers had to hold their breath in order to continue their investigation.
This creates the feeling very alone in a crowded room. Gregor woke up as a vermin and since then he has been isolated by his family. In The Metamorphosis it says, “Many things had become superfluous, and though they certainly weren't salable, on the other hand they could not just be thrown out.

Every natural element is restricted and lonely, for example the ‘wild winds [are] bound within their cell’. The flower pots are described to be ‘thickly crusted’ with the ‘blackest moss’ which shows a bold contrast to the brightly coloured blooms which plant pots are expected to bear. Likewise, other feminine imagery is downplayed in this poem such as the stagnant ‘blackn’d waters’ and the moon, which doesn’t rise to its normal height. This choice of imagery shows that that Mariana isn’t effectively portraying the desired characteristics of a woman, as her lust for her beloved has driven her insane. This lust is shown through the extended metaphor of the poplar
