He seems very queer sometimes, and even Jennifer has an inexplicable look.” (246), “I know she was studying that pattern, and I am determined that nobody shall find it out but myself!” (247) Her obsession with the wallpaper gains momentum because she wasn’t allowed to change it. At the end, John faints when he breaks into the room and sees his wife in the psychotic
The patient points to the Buck traction and screams, "Somebody tied me up with ropes." The patient is experiencing: illusion A patient was admitted 48 hours ago for injuries sustained while intoxicated. The patient is shaky, irritable, anxious, and diaphoretic. The pulse rate is 130 beats per minute. The patient shouts, "Bugs are crawling on my bed.
When McMurphy discovers that many of the patients are in the hospital because they don’t have the courage to get out into the real world he gets upset but also embarrassed because it is evident that Nurse Ratched’s therapy and methods to help the men are designed to undermine the little confidence they do have, not encourage it. In my opinion Nurse Ratched’s should be put into the asylum for abusing her authority and dehumanizing the patients and replacing it with blind conformity. McMurphy, is the person who sees everything that Nurse Ratched is doing. By showing the other patients how to create their own standards of sanity, McMurphy greets a bunch of institutionalized nervous wrecks back towards their humanity. McMurphy and I both think that society is corrupt and if you are no danger to yourself or society you are not insane, you may be different but you are most definitely not
The story goes by and the setting does not change, that is why the woman goes crazier and starts crawling into the wallpaper trying to help get the woman out. It is not to late before she realizes that she is insane and the woman she tries to get out of the wallpaper is only herself. There is also some kind of irony in the story because her husband puts her into that room without activity or work to help her problem. But the irony is that instead of helping her, it just makes the woman more insane because she imagines more things. The setting impacted the character in the story because the woman was in that lonely room the whole time and the woman just felt more insane.
McMurphy stands up for the patients on the ward and sets the example that they have a right to ask the question, why. There are many ways of controlling those you want kept in a certain formation, Ms. Ratched’s way is by using scare tactics. She uses all types of ways to get the patients on the ward to believe that she is helping them, and sets up strict regulations for their own good. When she caught Billy Bibbit in the room with one of McMurphy’s girls, she threatened him by talking about telling his mother. Knowing that his mother is the root of his stutter and insecurities, she scared him back into the obedient patient he was before McMurphy came to the ward.
In this scene, Mr. Neal orders Mary to work in the hospital. Mary argues against the idea of working in the hospital because of her knowledge about the exploitation of Aboriginal girls by Mr. Neal in the hospital. Mary’s defiance of Mr. Neal’s order led to her being beaten-up, despite of her pregnant state. The prop used for her physical abuse is a cat-o’-nine-tails, a rope whip consisted of nine knotted cords with a nail in each knotted cord. This symbolises the total oppression of the Aboriginal people.
The physical appearance of the woman concluded the examination and marked them as witches, due to physical signs left by the devil such as a "wart." Ann, and her parents accused many more townspeople, typically those who were enemies of the family. The accusation sent fear to the people as villagers believed that anyone could be a witch. By the time Ann's witch hunt was over, she had accused 62 people . Tituba denied to have practiced any witchcraft and was beated by Parris to confess as he would promise her freedom.
Both of these stories portray many similarities and differences in the setting, characterization and symbolism, and most of all, how men have isolated these women from the real world driving them insane. In Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” the narrator Jane has a very extensive imagination. Her husband who doesn’t believe that she is sick drives her to insanity. Being a doctor her husband puts her in a bedroom with ripped up and dirty yellow wallpaper. After a couple weeks of being in her bedroom she begins to see that there is more to the wall than meets the eye.
