When Charles voiced his opinion that Uncle Nate was clearly depressed, obsessive-compulsive, and crippled from his life experiences, thus needing psychological help in order to heal, Raney took it as an insult. In Raney’s mind, Charles was placing blame on her, her family, and specifically, her mother who spent most of her time taking care of Uncle Nate.

Edgar Allan Poe’s life was filled with many tragedies which heavily influenced his most popular work from the Gothic genre. It all began at the ripe age of two, when Edgar’s mother died of tuberculosis, causing himself and his brother and sister to be orphaned. The three children were split apart, and Edgar was taken into the foster home of John Allan and Frances Keeling Valentine Allan. Each parent provided a different experience for Poe; his foster father was an abusive alcoholic, while his foster mother would educate and try protecting him from her husband when possible. The death of his foster mother was very difficult for him to handle, and he enlisted himself in the army to get away from the abuse at his foster home.

Theme Theme is the basic concept of a story. You could write it in one sentence and have it all right there in front of you and understand a story before even reading it. Instead, the author wants to teach us this by putting his theme into a situation where we can see it reoccurring. When we empathize with characters in a novel, that's us connecting to the universal truth that's being given. This sounds kind of like the moral of a story but its slightly different.
