The difference I observed were the acceptability of domestic violence in different time periods and how the victims respond to the abuse. In the novel, Decline into Darkness, by Gay Oakes and the movie Once Were Warriors, directed by Lee Tamahori both have physical and emotional abuse which leads to sexual abuse later on. In Decline into darkness, which is based on a true story, Gay Oakes suffered terrible emotional and physical abuse for 10 years at the hands of her husband Douglas ‘Doug’ Gardener. Because of the abuse Gay felt cut off from society and was unable to seek the help she needed to leave Doug once and for all. If Oakes was to break free from Doug’s vicious abuse her young daughter wouldn’t have fallen victim to him.

She was not a wild or spontaneous person like Jed. But that was also one of their relationship’s contrasts, as mentioned before, their differences made them strong, but also weak in the end. The narrator is still a person who is sure of herself; she has grown up and proves it, when Jed told/texts that he drove his wife insane because she wasn’t our narrator, and she didn’t reply, because she knew she can’t be stuck in her past, and can’t go back to her high school love life.
