Before their family tragedy occurs, none of them could ever think about changing mentality or lifestyle, therefore all characters are psychologically unready to survive their loss. Moreover, this event makes some of the characters starting to think differently. Nandana is one of the main characters who can also be considered a hero. She initially lives an illusion when she refuses to accept that her parents died. As she refuses to talk to anybody, the child created her own imaginary world being unwilling to look at the reality: “Why couldn't he understand that if he kept quiet, if all of them kept quiet, her parents would hear her and come to take her home?” (47).
Also, her lack of intelligence has left her with no job and an inability to get a job. In the story, there are many reasons contributing to Jean’s feeling of emptiness and difficulty in her life. To begin, her husband, Ross feels as though he has married beneath himself, and he does not love her anymore. Their marriage was most likely caused by Jean getting pregnant with their son, which made Ross feel like he had to marry her out of force. In the story, Ross specifically tells their son, Kevin that he should try not to marry beneath himself because he will end up stuck in the same situation as him.
I read the non-fiction narrative essay “Girl” by Jane Maher which is about a story about a problem between her and her father and how this issue continued between them until his death. (Maher 1-3). The author story is very doleful since it is a realistic circumstance that Maher been through in her life, and it really impinged on me since I live far away from my family and any topic about parents affects me easily. I wished that the death wasn’t the end of the story, but that is not Maher’s choice, nor the reader’s! Death is the predestined destination for all creations in this entire world, whether they are satisfied or not.
In the novel, Mildred is known as a character who has no hope in resolving disputes within herself. She feels there is no purpose to life and thus attempts to suicide. She eventually becomes mesmerised by the world of technology it providing a way for her to escape her reality. Technologies such as television and the radio create a barrier in her relationship with her husband, Montag. Bradbury uses the character Mildred to warn the audience of how conformity can impact upon an individual’s choices as well as their relationships with others.
A main example from the book is that Melinda kept this huge secret held inside. She was too fearful to share it with anyone so instead she decided to keep it her secret. This turned out to be extremely detremental to her well being. It caused her grades to drop, she became an intravert, not wanting to speak to anyone or function properly as a teenager, she isolated herself from others and had no motivation to do anything. Melinda turned from being a loving young lady who had a close relationship with her parents to a recluse who became distant to her parents, friends and everyone.
Christopher Mcandless, although driven to find true isolation, came to the self-realization at the end of his journey that loneliness was not the true solution to his problems, but that true happiness comes from the love of others. Before he came to this realization, Christopher’s motivations for happiness and isolation derived from his disconnection to his family, his hatred for society and the structure that forms it, and finally Christopher’s desire for a natural life. Christopher’s disconnection to his family was one of his motivations to search for total isolation. Chris had next to no relationship with any of his family members besides his sister, which evidently was not enough to keep him from leaving. He had no similar interests with them and their lifestyle was one that he didn’t like or want to be a part of.
“A Sorrowful Woman” by Gail Godwin, opened with once upon a time, but this short story is far from a fairy tale. The woman is never named throughout the story, leading the reader to believe she feels she has no identity, and the fact that her family is never named either could lead one to believe there is no connection to them. In the very beginning, the husband is described as “durable, receptive, gentle; the child a tender golden three” (39), but the sight of them makes her “sad and sick” (39). As a reader, I want to know how these feelings of despise and disgust came to be. As the story unfolds, the unnamed wife becomes increasingly distant from the love of her husband and son.
Curly's wife is so lost, lonely and insignificant that Steinbeck does not even give her a name. She spends the novel trying to find company under the guise of looking for her husband.

In order to demonstrate the trauma and anguish of all immigrants, Tóibín effectively reveals the fact that neither Jack- Eilis’ older brother who moved to Birmingham for better employment prospects; nor Eilis can directly communicate their distress about their journeys, illustrating the lonely nature of immigration experiences. (“As he spoke, he looked innocent and serious, she thought, but nervous as well, as though he were on display and worried what she would think of him and the life he had now”). Passages of the novel before Eilis’ physical journey also exposes her immensely passive personality, as she is reluctant and afraid to speak her mind about moving to Brooklyn, despite her fear of change and her unprepared mental state. Following her lonely and anxious trip on the ship from Ireland to America, Eilis then unsurprisingly endures severe symptoms of homesickness as she arrives in America- “That night was the worst she had ever spent ”. As a way of coping with a new life in Brooklyn, Eilis Lacey discovers various resolutions such
