In addition to this, the social issues surrounded by the times they live in and their environments play a major role in the lives of all. From this we can conclude that there are many varying factors that influence an individual’s personality, forming their identity. The impact of relationships with others is a key aspect in the development of character. This is prevalent in the novel My Brilliant Career narrated by Sybylla Melvyn, under the pen name Miles Franklin. Others, including her mother and her Aunt, significantly shaped Sybylla’s identity.

It is not an oversight that Curley’s wife, although a relatively minor character, was left nameless in Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men. She is not in the story as someone to relate to, and by giving her a name, it would bring more similarity to the reader. Her status also has to do with this. She is not regarded as anything significant, therefore she does not need a name. Steinbeck leaves her unnamed so she lacks something that makes her appear as an equal individual.
Identity is a word that describes a sense of ones self. It starts the moment that we are born developing up until adulthood. Many things in the world affect someone’s identity. Family, media and social interactions with other people help shape our identity. Personal identity is very important because it shows who a person is.
Bella’s guilt caused by her mother’s fear of loneliness has left her short of any male relations. She cannot escape the wrath of her mother, and continually surrenders to her mother's will. Also, Bella has felt she cannot start her own relationship because her mother, in an effort to protect her living children, she has trained them not to feel by hardening them with punishments such as locking them in a closet or beating them with her cane” (Bloom, Harold. “List of characters in Lost in Yonkers. p67-68).
Subversive Female Characters In Alison Lurie’s “Folktale Liberation” she claims that the true folktales are subversive meaning that women and the middle class have power, they are original and clever. In the film “Grease” the main female character Sandy is exactly what Lurie would view as being beautiful, smart, and precisely the character a man would centralize as his female role. Lurie proves that the old folktales orally told to children in the past by women are much more powerful than those re-written by men now. She praises women empowerment and does not like them being downplayed. Although this film emerges to not be subversive by the end of the film you come to realize that with time and learning on Sandy’s part it truly is.
Chanda wrestled Iris to the ground and sat on her. Iris pushed her off and said, “This isn’t even my real home, you aren’t my real sister, and I hate you”. A sister who used to love her so much now was the opposite. From this I notice how children of this area can change just because their mother is
She describes Stella-Rondo be inconsistent and unstable based on her being spoiled when they were children. Sister uses this immediately to make a point of her sister’s unappreciation for everything she has ever had. But she never describes how she behaved as a child which can be suggested that she may think the reader can assumed she was the better of the two. Then, she goes to say that out of nowhere Stella-Rondo leaves her husband and returns home with a two-year-old child whom she claims is adopted. Sister sees right through her sister’s façade considering the timing of everything.
The prenatal Cash was a part of her, someone inside of her from whom she could never isolate herself. In the reluctant mother’s mind, Anse Bundren was to blame for corrupting her sense of privacy and would be forever dead to her. In this way, she severed what was supposed to be the most sovereign relationship in a woman’s life and created a rift through what was to come of the Bundren family. As the family grows, Addie develops misconceptions about her relationship to her children. Cash had violated her aloneness, while Darl was deprived of the love that Addie poured so strongly into the void that was her third son.
In the midst of taking care of herself Abigail had an affair with John Proctor who gave her a sense of security and belonging which she wasn't able to receive from Reverend Parris. When John Proctor demises the affair with Abigail she becomes distraught and overwhelmed with feelings of abandonment "A wildness stirs in her, a child is standing here who is unutterably frustrated, denied her wish, but she is still grasping for her wits.". As an outcome we first handedly see Abigail's devious skills in action when she is on the verge of being apprehended for engaging in witch craft. In order to delude all liability of witch craft Abigail accuses Tituba of conjuring the devil as well as sending out her spirit to the girls.These accusations are ironic on Abigail's behalf because she was the one who insisted for Tituba to teach her charms so John Proctor would fall in love with her "You
