On the contrary, she is not; she is the cause of most, if not all, the conflicts throughout the novel by F. Scott Fitzgerald. We can first see Daisy's true character when she marries Tom Buchanan, but obviously does not love him. " Daisy's change' her mine!' " "She began to cry-she cried and cried She wouldn't let go of the letter." The reader can defiantly tell she did not want to marry Tom; we can also go deeper into the novel and notice the note and begin to assume she loved Gatsby by the way she clutched the letter while in tears.

An autobiography often shows a great deal of the individual’s inner emotions and life motivations using various literary techniques. This is what entails the effortless empathy and compassion the reader feels towards the author whilst reading their autobiography. Without the author’s emotions the text would be mostly dull and non-personalised. This as I have been made aware by reading The Glass Castle in comparison to The Happiest Refugee is not always the case. American author Jeanette Wall’s autobiography The Glass Castle examines her surreal family story of extreme poverty and abuse in a detached non-resentful manner that invites the reader to feel emotional on her behalf, thereby creating a strong emotional connection on the part of the reader towards the author’s story.
Hester’s pain at her alienation is apparent in the devotion she holds towards her daughter Pearl, her (and Pearl’s) only company. “But she named the infant ‘Pearl’, as being of great price – purchased with all she had – her mother’s only treasure!” (Hawthorne 83). Their relationship is a tenuous one, but Hester’s maternal bond to her daughter helps her cope with alienation. Through Pearl, Hester learns some measure of empathy again and finds comfort in the fact that someone will accept her for who she is. Pearl does exactly that and more; she intuits the “inner sinfulness” that Hester holds in her heart and displays on her breast, and accepts Hester.

I think Josie is a girl who straddles the social strata between the “cool” kid and the “outcasts. In her chapters in the book Josie says how she feels empty and fake, I can relate to this because it is something that often happens in modern day schools. I think that Josie feels guilty about shooting Matt but at the same time I feel that if she were in the same situation again she would do the same thing. She is a very caring character which makes her likable and she also seems, in a way, broken. This makes me sympathise with
“Fight vs. Flight” is an essay that describes a mother’s awaking to one daughter’s superficiality and to the other daughter’s deep understanding of heritage (179). “Fight vs. Flight” goes in to great detail about the relationship that is shared between Dee, her mother, and Dee’s younger sister Maggie. Fuller explains the different views and opinions of the different characters throughout the essay, mostly focusing on Dee and her mother. According to Farrell, those who read the story would tend to agree that Dee is a shallow and manipulative young lady who is overly concerned with herself and lacks the true understanding of her heritage. According to Farrell, the story is being told by her mother and suggests that Dee may not really be the bad person that everyone claims she is (179).
