The WiB is a ghost; no-one can see her. This way, she is also isolated. She is a social outcast after disgracing her family, and is also a social outcast when she is a ghost. She is still at Eel House, meaning she is unable to move on, and cannot leave her son who died there. I do not sympathize with the WiB herself, as she does not have
The lost of Codi’s baby is another reason for distant attitude towards others. She had no one to go to for comfort. Not even by Loyd or her own father, Doc Homer.

The mother starts weaving with gray, brown and neutral shades, “all the shades of her life”, to express her depression. To further emphasize the mothers’ sadness, the mother uses “the subdued, muted colours she liked”. Diction in “muted” is interesting, as throughout the extract, the mother never says anything, which seems to suggest that the mother expresses her emotions through weaving. The colors the mother weaves with symbolizes the mothers’ life, and the use of these monotonous colors depicts that it is dull without her daughters, and without her daughters, she has no purpose in life as they no longer need her anymore. However, later throughout the passage, the narrator mentions that the mother could weave “a flash of color” that would not be “picked up” until the fabric was turned over.

She does not even care about the death of her former lover, the Great Gatsby, which proved that the love between Daisy and Gatsby is not true love at all.
Her poetry very much reflects this, and she advises the audience subtly in her writing that it is not society’s fault that she cannot live in the regular social world, but she just needs something that society doesn’t give her. She also wishes acceptance or tolerance from the world, wanting to ‘belong’ to a small degree, even though she cannot. Dickinson’s poem “this is my letter to the world” is her main body of work, being one of the only two poems that were published in her lifetime, and is one of the strongest poems that shows her connection with nature and her lack of belonging to the human world. The form of a letter to convey her message functions as a strong metaphor to show her separation already from society. Dickinson states that her ‘letter’ to the world was a one sided attempt at communication ahead of her.
[She] and each parent had been separate individuals before Lily came. Now all four melted together like gumdrops left on a windowsill” (5).

Sophie is unable to express her true feelings about her sister to her parents making them unable to help her.

I get awful lonely.” (86). She is trying to guilt Lennie into talking to her by telling him about how lonely she is.

She had no power left, no sense of well-being. “It was the beginning of the end of reality for my mother. When she began to sit around and walk around talking to herself-almost as though she was unaware that we were there- it became increasingly terrifying” (Haley and X 19). The welfare people saw that she was weakening and began to take advantage. Moreover, they mentioned a different home for Malcolm, a home where it was humble and invigorating for him to live.
