To begin with, Duffy writes about childhood as ultimately a loss of innocence as children ‘come of age’. This is clearly portrayed in ‘in Mrs Tilcher’s class’, as in the last stanza of the poem Duffy writes “sexy sky.” This use of the word “sexy” represents the protagonist of the poem growing into adolescence and becoming aware of sexual interests. The use of assonance emphasises this message as the repeated ‘s’ sound rolls off the readers tongue in a very sensual sounding way which forces them to mirror the exciting and intriguing experiences now known to the growing child. A loss of innocence is also revealed in ‘Lizzie, Six’ as initially the repetitive questions at the beginning of every stanza appear to be innocent “what are you doing?”, yet as the poem progresses, the true nature is revealed as Duffy writes “I’ll give you dark and I do not care”, illustrating the true nature of the poem and the child’s “dark” loss of innocence. The use of the term “I do not” as opposed to the abbreviation “I don’t” is very successful as it creates a harsh monosyllabic rhythm and a hollow, eerie tone.
Whereas in Locksley Hall Amy is presented as a woman who is being constantly controlled by men at first her father and then her husband who she doesn’t love. Firstly in Mariana Tennyson uses a repetitive rhyme scheme to reflect Mariana’s feeling of loneliness. For example in the first stanza the rhyme scheme is “plots” “all” “knots” and “wall.” These are all very simple rhymes which emphasise Mariana’s monotonous and structured life. It is also extremely ironic that Tennyson uses this structured rhyme scheme to present a woman who has a very low state of consciousness and who is extremely mentally unstable. Additionally the rhyme scheme is also at times rather rigid which still emphasises the monotony of her life.

A Child Called It was person vs. self and The Lost Boy was person vs. person.

Due to the nonexistence of a higher authority or family member at Bly, the governess in the Turn of the Screw by virtue of Victorian society was the primary caretaker of the children and the household. The information the prologue provides about the governess depicts the predisposition that she could be vulnerable as she is a “flattered anxious girl … With no previous experience”. However, she may be in awe of Harley Street and the grand estate of Bly, overwhelmed by her surroundings, she may not necessarily be too frightened to tell her story reliably. James’s style of writing in the novella creates room for the readers to view the governess as frightened and vulnerable whilst on the other hand certain and confident. The governess’s adoration of the uncle after visiting him at Harley Street and her belief that he needed her reflects the governess’s naivety.
Although it is easy to hate Briony because she falsely accuses Robbie, due to her childish naivety and innocence, her belief is that she is protecting Cecilia.

When she matures, the realization of her mistake causes her extreme guilt, and she dedicates her life to finding atonement. The fountain scene is the first scene in which Briony’s innocence and naivety leads her to misunderstand Robbie Turner. She does not know what is going on, but she attempts to understand.
Isolation and Alienation in Puritan Society by Lawrence Luo In The Scarlet Letter, Nathaniel Hawthorne examines the effects of alienation and isolation in the darkness of smothering Puritan morality. These effects are presented largely in a negative light; a theme of the book is that alienation and isolation are detrimental to finding true happiness and achieving true moral redemption. Throughout The Scarlet Letter, the main characters demonstrate these adverse effects that isolation from society can have on people. After her adulterous affair and fall from decent society, Hester Prynne leads a solitary life on the outskirts of Boston. Though she finds solace from a community that scorns her for her former actions, Hester ultimately suffers as a result of her isolation from other human beings.
This is in seen in the main protagonist of Lucy where she struggles to find middle ground for her desires and social acceptability. Lucy is first introduced into Florence Italy, where she is on a holiday chaperoned by her cousin Charlotte Bartlett. Italy is not introduced at first as a place of warmth and liberation, as usually stereotyped as, but an anglicised version of London. The Englishness is implied heavily and suggests a repression from the English guests. Their stifling and snobbish views show in their refusal to accept a new culture when they are away from their home grounds.
She recalls her first day as a “annoying clatter of shoes on bare floors….constant clash of harsh noises…many voices murmuring as unknown tongue,” (Zitkala-Sa 103) different from the soft moccasins and her native tongue she is accustomed to. She describe it as her “though my spirit tore itself in struggling for its lost freedom, all was useless.” (Zitkala-Sa 104) She was stripped from the things of familiar, such as her moccasins and blanket to the unfamiliar items of clothes and shoes and eating with utensils. The most significant and dramatic event she recalls, when all the children were required to have short hair. In her culture this was an ultimate humiliation for her, that “only unskilled warriors who were captured had their hair shingled by the enemy. Among our people, short hair was worn by mourners, and shingled hair by cowards!” (Zitkala-Sa 105) She was able to find a hiding place but the women and girls searched the school and discovered her underneath a bed.
The cultural differences that two countries have and the effect that the culture may create on individuals are exemplified in the Joyce's troubled marriage. In the opening scene of Voyage to Italy the Joyce's travel through Napoli, this proves to be a significant component in showing the couples solidarity and compares their lack of love with a city that is known for its love. Alex begins to make comments of distaste to Katherine, which includes telling her he cannot wait for his late Uncle's property to sell so they can go home. Alex's attitude towards Katherine is caused by his own personal disorientation while experiencing a type of culture shock. The conversation in the car continues to be hostile as Alex continues to show his disgust for the Italian culture and Katherine relates this to his desire to be elsewhere instead of in an automobile with her.
