I wanted one downstairs that opened on the piazza and had roses all over the window, and such pretty old-fashioned chintz hangings! but John would not hear of it” (Gilman 76), This room is symbolic of a prison, holding her in against her will. She also makes note that she is in no way fond of the yellow wallpaper that coats the walls of her prison. Yet because of her high regard for her husband and her unwillingness to acknowledge that she is unhappy, she simply thinks that it is for the best, if her husband thinks so. This aids in leading to her mental condition deteriorating even further due to the fact that she must simply put up with her prison.
She had to move away with her child, Pearl to someone’s abandoned house and live in loneliness with her child. Hawthorne is just trying to show the people that puritans didn’t mess around they had to make sure that their society was the best of the best because of course they were the chosen ones and they had to set up the idea of city upon a hill, so others around them could have realized that they were the best and others should follow in what they do.

Mariana was honoring Martha while she was in jail with a book she had written, she thought that if people read about Martha from the point of view of someone who truly knows her they would hopefully change their new negative views of her. Athena is also very graceful in her movements and by watching Martha Stewart on TV, at award shows for example, her movements were also very graceful, she is very elegant. Martha is extremely intelligent, graduating from Barnard College here in New York City with a double major in History and Architectural History, and Athena was considered high intelligent and very quick-witted.
Rochester. Even though gothic elements would not stand our right away by reading this ending, I definitely want to show how I used them. One of the gothic elements I have used is the women in distress. Jane seemed to be lonely when Edward died and even terrified as of what could happen next in her life. She knew that her children will soon leave and have their time in life and spend less and less time with her and that she would just simply stay inside and be alone.
Only Curley's wife was around and starts a conversation with George which was later interrupted by Curley. Curley tells her to return to the house and issues a warning to George. This scene doesn’t happen in the book as John Steinbeck spent a lot more time describing Curly’s wife’s personality, so it was easier to visualize. I think this scene is necessary for the movie because it helps you have a better understand of Curly’s wife. She flirts with George to get attention as she is so lonely, and also again, portrays the type of relationship she has with her husband; as he commands her back to the
So, there are many examples of not thinking for yourself and thinking for youself in this novel.

The open and closed systems refer to way a family lays out boundaries in terms of relationships with each other, as well as outside parties (Becvar & Becvar, 1998). In the movie, Melanie possesses characteristics of a closed system. She feels that she is a different person that she once was, and she is no longer similar to the people from her hometown. She keeps people at arm’s length in a sense. Melanie wanted to make something of herself, and consciously or subconsciously, closed out the people from her past in an attempt to become part of the “upper class”, which was happening through her future marriage to the mayor’s son.

The contrast between the ‘girl’ who comes to take the ‘sunlight’ away from the friendship between George and Lennie, and the diplomatic good sense of Slim that instantly recommends him to the reader, even before we actually meet him. Whilst Curley’s wife stands in the doorway Slim comes into the bunkhouse to join the men showing he is apart of their group, yet they are both outsiders. Steinbeck gives Curley’s wife no name Slim however is nicknamed “Slim” (so specific when most of the men are labelled with their last names); these characters are presented as opposites. Slim brings light to the room whilst Curley’s wife brings darkness; they symbolise the themes of good and evil that are portrayed in this book. A metaphor perhaps that the good in the men on the ranch is embedded in them yet all they can see is Curley’s wife – the evil.
