She prefers to spend more time with herself than with her family because of this she has a weak relationship with her parents. The story discusses how she has two sides: one for home and one for not being home. Her abduction was solely due to her fault for her appearance that she presented in public, to the relationship that she had with her family and lastly her naiveness. The antagonist Arnold Friend somehow knew about Connie. He saw a great opportunity the moment he set his eyes on her.
They try to act professionally like the other Americans, especially the young daughter Lin. Even though the young daughter Lin has failed sometimes, but through it she is being changed her minds and personalities by the struggle of adaptation. The young daughter Lin says, “I understood the message, the Gleasons were not used to Chinese ways, and they were just coping the best they could” (Namioka). Because of the challenge, the young daughter Lin knows that everyone is the same when they try to learn something new. Overcoming the obstacle of adaptation is not as hard as the young daughter Lin’s thoughts because as long as she tries her best, everything is going to be okay.

She was able to prove to the judge her case, but mainly happy because she still wants to hurt her husband. Regardless of the fact that he put himself in this situation, T. Smith can not help but to flaunt her fiancée, feed into the fact that her ex husband still wants her, but can’t have her. She describes him in such derogatory terms, that it makes me feel that in order to have so much hate and hurt, there must still be love and regret. I believe that she still wishes that if her ex husband would have just been good to her, she would still be with him. I believe that she does feel bad that her children, who once really loved their father, have become bitter towards him now.
John is very much aware of his wife, the narrator’s mental insecurity. Simultaneously, he embraces a conscious ignorance of his wife, telling her that it would not benefit the situation “if I [she] had ... less opposition and more society and stimulus” (Gilman 1). The reader can assume that John is initially embarrassed and disillusioned by his wife’s illness. This is reiterated as he (“a physician of high standing”) “assures friends and relatives that there is really nothing the matter with one but temporary nervous depression” (Gilman 1). In this instance, John’s social standing as a husband and a doctor conspire against the narrator’s enunciation of her illness.

Connie had somewhat of a split personality.

Lenina is also described to be “uncommonly pretty”, this view of her is completely out of her sphere of influence as she is one of the characters who follows the ideology “Everyone belongs to everyone else”. For Lenina to be described as “uncommonly pretty” the whole concept of “everyone belonging to everyone else” is removed as she seems more individual and prettier than other women in the society. We
It was a reflex, a “survival of the fittest” reaction that Gene did out of anger, fear, and confusion. He is already the “odd one out” and Finny seems to be his only real friend. This secret would destroy Gene’s rekindled friendship with Finny that has reached a happy, placid level. Gene recalls, “I shoved my foot against the rung of his chair and kicked,” (145). He loses himself in his emotions, but he struggles to control himself while “evolving the right way” (125) in order to survive.
