Williams feels that women should be looked down upon because of his cruel relationship with his mother and sister overpowering him in the past. Williams interprets some part of his life in the plays, like his drinking habits and uses of emotions but most portrayed in women since he was gay. In Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Women portray these characteristics in Big Mama and Margaret. Big Mama is very lonely and she is looked down upon by Big Daddy and didn’t show any affection towards her at all. Margaret is very lonely because Brick; her husband, didn’t show any love for her.
The struggle to survive causes tension throughout the people living in the house. Also, Ethan wanted to move to the city after one year but when he asked Zeena about it, she suddenly got sick. It gives off a dark and hopeless mood. This contributes to the theme of “Lonliness leads to bad decisions,” because he feared of being alone so he married Zeena and he still feels alone because he doesn’t love her. He then makes the bad decision to kill both himself and Mattie.
The need to be accepted drives the characters to extreme behaviour for example when Curley’s wife tells Crooks that she “could get [him] lynched so easy it ain’t even funny.” The loneliness she feels means she cannot interact properly or form relationships with the men on the ranch because she constantly has to defend herself. George and Lennie are the only characters who manage even a slight companionship. The other characters are immediately suspicious, as the boss says to George, “Are you taking his pay?” Loneliness is the norm on the ranch; the idea of two men travelling together for company is very unusual within the novel but is attractive to other ranch workers; most notably Candy who quickly joins the dream to buy a plot of land as a way to escape his lonely, harsh surroundings. The main setting of the bunk house is a workplace with many people so it is quite ironic that the men should feel so lonely. However Steinbeck’s language
Olive cries to her grandfather because she fears losing in the Little Miss Sunshine pageant; she said, “Dad hates losers.” Edwin, the grandpa, always nags about stuff such as the ride or having chicken for dinner, again. With that, it loops into Richard’s annoyance causing him to lash out at Edwin again and then, pushing Olive to win. Sheryl is the mediator, most of the time during situations, but she argues with Richard when his deal falls through, causing him stress and is probably why he wants to win so badly. Frank becomes part of the family system when he comes to live with them. Frank and Richard have opposite views, therefore, when Frank starts being
Curley treats her as if she were an object, and Steinbeck puts more ‘loneliness’ to her by not giving her a name because she’s merely a property belonging to Curley In her moment of greatest vulnerability, Curley’s wife seeks out even greater weaknesses in others, preying upon Lennie’s mental handicap, Candy’s debilitating age, and the colour of Crooks’s skin in order to steel herself against harm. Curley’s wife has a racist attitude towards Crooks, George and Lennie. “You bindle bums think you’re so damn good', talking to a bunch of bindle stiffs, a ****** an' a dum-dum and a lousy ol' sheep”, I believe this shows even though she is younger, she has no respect and thinks herself a lot better than them because she is married to Curley. She made a
Through the actions of his characters, Steinbeck aims to show the self-destruction of humanity by its greed for power. Nearly all of the characters admit to having a profound sense of loneliness and isolation. Each desires the comfort of a friend, but is unwilling to accept others. In the novella, Curley’s wife admits that she is unhappily married, yet she makes herself into a threatening figure. Crooks tells Lennie that life is no good without a companion to turn to in times of confusion and need, but he displays himself as rude and unwelcoming.

After the rape Maya feels even more lost and insure because she feel insignificant and useless. The horrific experience also affected her life because Maya feels like is an ugly and not beautiful. Maya also feels insecure and unconfident about herself. To make matters worse, Maya constantly compares herself to her brother.

Both of the narrators are oppressed by their husbands, and though they want to be happy, it is impossible due to the way they are treated by their spouses. In “The Yellow Wallpaper,” John, the nameless narrator’s husband, confines his wife to a room with barred windows and hideous yellow wallpaper because she is ill. He does not allow her to exert herself physically or mentally, prevents her from seeing her friends and family and keeps her under intense scrutiny. While isolated in this room, she begins to go mad, believing that the wallpaper is somehow watching her, and eventually she believes she is a prisoner inside it. The narrator proves that her husband is oppressive when she reveals how afraid she is of him.
