Yet, even worse than Chillingworth’s rude and evil nature was her suffering caused by Dimmesdale. Indeed that her love for Dimmesdale was causing her great pain and anguish. From seeing his agony and pain, she suffered by knowing that she was, in some part, responsible for it. “Hast thou not tortured him enough?”.. “Has he not paid thee all?”..“It was myself!” cried Hester, shuddering” “It was I, not less than he. Why hast thou avenged thyself on me?”(Hawthorne
She appeals to the readers’ emotions. When she says that her parents’ accents humiliated her, you can feel her pain and embarrassment of something so trivial. Yu can feel her anger as she tells the reader of the snide remark about the Middle East coming from an adult. She uses reason to convince readers of the discrimination when her mother changes young children’s minds about some stereotypes. I think pathos predominates because one connects with the author on an emotional level and opens their mind to the existing problem.
In Hawthorne’s novel The Scarlet Letter, he focuses on the conflicting views of society and nature in the Puritan society and uses contrast, symbolism, and imagery to convey his beliefs. From the beginning of the novel, color was used symbolically, representing everything from life to death; punishment to freedom. The color red was used throughout the novel, most notably as the scarlet letter. A letter “A” was forced upon Hester’s chest by the Puritan society as punishment for her sin of adultery in the beginning of the novel, with gold lining surrounding a vibrant, red cloth. It felt to Hester as though the red cloth emanated a “burning heat; and as if the letter were not of red cloth, but red-hot iron” (30).

“Applying aversive psychological tactics in a random and variable manner together with some periods of withdrawal of the aversive stimuli and substitution of pleasure or loving behavior is known to create psychological dependency, learned helplessness, or other deleterious conditions for victims” (Walker 145). Battered women cry and start to lose respect for the abuser. The woman will feel guilty all the time. It can provoke a woman to feel ashamed and she would have low self-esteem. Women who are battered can develop mental trauma.
This practice resulted in Pip’s deepest love towards her. Pip had been habitually abused by Mrs. Joe throughout his childhood, and could possibly have been used to Estella’s harsh and heartless treatment. Estella conceitedly recognized Pip’s admiration, but undermined the notion of romantic love and purposely aggravated Pip. Estella’s beauty and poise distracted Pip from her cruel manner which otherwise would have been unattractive. Estella’s torment of Pip led to his desire to better himself to be worthy of her love.
A child could also feel as if any adult that approaches then could be harm to them. There are also signs that you can tell when a parent is abusing the child. An example would be if a parent was talking about the child saying he and or she was very bad or "evil". Another reason why a parent would possible physically abuse a child would be because they were abused themselves when they were younger. Second, Neglect: when a child is being neglected he and or she is consistently dirty and smells really horrid.

With Michael being in Grief of loosing his wife Elinor, Anna comforts Michael to try and get his mind of things. “Many people …..went so far as to whisper blame upon him for their great losses.” This made Michael feel worse about himself.
They know what they want and when they don’t get it, they cry, or scream, or express their emotions in another way. Divorce is a difficult and unpleasant event in life of any person, and children become its victims as well. Of course, they don’t want to lose the possibility of seeing another parent less frequently than another, and thus they express their disappointment in a way usual for them. People start to think that children shouldn’t suffer because of it, and maybe they should try to restore the relationships and so on. But, unfortunately, such tries often end with nothing good and children suffer even more.
