Hadaller wrote “The clear distinction in the novel between Helen’s child Maudie and Milton’s Peyton highlights the intense polarization in the family.”(Hadaller58) It was a twisted situation for the family, Milton choosing Peyton and Helen consuming herself with Maudie. In the end it only caused trouble for everyone. “The dependant Maudie and the fiercely independent Peyton are set up in the novel to dramatize the family’s fracture. Both parents seek to love and adore one child to the exclusion of the

Cordelia, however, plays a smaller role in the first few Acts of the play as she is disowned by her father and is not visited. Gonerill and Regan are both cruel father and do not have the same loyalty we get the impression as Cordelia does.

This truthfulness however lands her in a bad place as she is disowned by her father for not professing her love.
In “A Sorrowful Woman” I found it appealing of the lengths that the husband took to nurture his wife the passage that states “With great care he rearranged his life.” (41) shows his dedication to her and making sure she had what she wanted. While it was appealing to see his love for her, it also did not appeal to me to see that instead of trying to get her help she needed, he just placated to her depression until it overtook her. 3.
