Sybil is an extremely self-satisfied woman: “Yes. We’ve done a great deal of useful work in helping deserving cases”, she is very proud of herself and of the “kind” things she does and she is also a judgmental person. Priestly shows how she is the one that decides if she wants to help a woman in need.
Daisy also, “tears about alone with her unmistakably low foreigners” (40) which shows how little taste and poise she has, she lacks the most basic ability to choose suitable companions. Winterbourne on the other hand, is rumored to be “extremely devoted to a lady who lived there [in Geneva]—a foreign lady, a person older than himself”(4). However, when this relationship is spoken of, he is not criticized for it, and it is simply said that he is “studying” (4). While both Winterbourne and Daisy make poor choices in companions; she is seen as choosing much more unwisely than he is.

In contrast, Hester is a young, beautiful and passionate human being in the beginning of the novel but by the end she is a soft spoken woman, who hides her hair in a cap and devotes more energy into thought rather than passion. Chillingworth, the antagonist, undergoes a very drastic transformation. In beginning he is simply a betrayed old man with revenge on his mind. However, and chapter by chapter vengeance never leaves the brain and Chillingworth becomes a devilish figure that he himself hardly recognizes. Pearl on the other hand is a flat character.
At her death she is presented in an innocent way which is in great contrast to the way she has been presented in much of the novella ‘She was very pretty and simple, and her face was sweet and young.’ This suggests that she was never evil and that she was attractive but in a nice way. Steinbeck uses Curley’s wife to present the theme of the American Dream. ‘Coulda been in the movies, an had nice clothes- all them nice clothes like they wear.

‘Maybe you better go along to your own house now. We don’t want no trouble’ this shows that the workers were cautious of being caught with Curley’s wife and sent her on her way to avoid conflict. Curley treasures his wife and if she were caught in any trouble, even if it was her fault, she’d be seen as innocent. Finally, Steinbeck also presents women as attractive and confident. The quotes ‘If he ain’t, I better look someplace else, she said playfully’ and ‘Hi, Good-lookin’.’ These show all the workers think Curley’s wife is attractive and she knows this, so she’s being confident with them.
3) In Flannery O'Connor's "Good Country People," the cynical, rude, and world-weary Hulga believes herself to be on such a high philosophical and intellectual plane that she is without illusion. Her main belief is to believe in nothing. Considering the frustration and dullness of her life with her mother and Mrs. Freeman, it is no wonder that Hulga assumes a jaded outlook. Unfortunately, this weariness does not come from extensive life experience and she is not prepared to deal with Manley Pointer, an example of the "good country people" that
