The Gaitas each faced their own fears of unable to belong, but none so as much as Christina who dies to the loneliness of been unable to fit in. “He found her just staring into the fire” describes Raymond, illustrating how desperate his mother had been. As a result she is characterized as ‘appearing to be cheerful and vivacious’ but in truth ‘deeply depressed.’ Christina is an allusion of the displaced socialite hungry for a sense of fulfillment and security, in a place where she cannot get the acceptance she seeks; she wants to ‘fall asleep and die”. She feels geographically and culturally displaced, as a result she never settles into Frogmore. Raymond uses a series of fragmented repetitions to convey the alienation felt by Christina.
Such isolated atmosphere and forced solitary confinement eventually envelops the narrator in her insanity. While receiving conflicting information from the narrator herself, the reader becomes aware of the narrator's decline in mental health. In Charlotte Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper”, the narrator’s skewed perceptions of her surroundings and mental state, along with her inconsistent narration, reflects her incomprehension of the reality of her declining mental health leaving the audience left in a similar state of confusion. The narrator and her physician husband, John, rent a mansion for the summer so she may recuperate from what is described as a nervous condition. Although the narrator does not believe that she is actually ill, John is convinced that she is suffering from a “temporary nervous depression” (Gillman 12), and prescribes rest and isolation as her treatment.

This quote is a paradox because while reading this the reader can apprehend that the unintended meeting was not as bad as it should have been. The one thing that is keeping the true lovers apart is the family feud (Montague’s and the Capulet’s) that’s been going on for many years. But Romeo and Juliet don’t care and later on they go against their families and get married. Tybat (Juliet’s cousin) was killed and Juliet’s parents think that it was the reason she committed suicide. As soon as the nurse finds out that Tybalt is dead her reaction is very troubling and she doesn’t exactly know how to break it to Juliet so at the end result she says, “Tybalt is gone, and Romeo banished; Romeo that kill’d him, he is banished.” (3.2.69-70).
She married for love, and the love turned to dust. She had bonny children, yet she felt they had been thrust upon her, and she could not love them.” Even though she has everything she needs, a stable family and enough money to support her needs, she still wants more.

Crystal S. Tory Essay October 25, 2010 English IV Block 2 “Porphyria’s Lover” and “My Last Duchess” In the two poems, “Porphyria’s Lover” and “My Last Duchess” there was a tragic ending in both. Both poems consist of a woman killed by the hands of her lover. The men in both poems were both jealous-hearted, but they did not have the same motives for killing their woman. Both men did not want to share their woman’s love; they wanted it all for themselves. They say, “Love can be dangerous in the wrong hands.” In the poem, “My Last Duchess”, that statement is a fact.

This kind of situation is often a result of destructive or tragic events that occurred in childhood, such as abusive or uncaring parents, alienation, or rejection of others, and results in never learning how to love. Emily Bronte’s Wuthering Heights presents many of these characteristics through her main characters Heathcliff and Catherine Earnshaw. However Catherine and Heathcliff may think they love each other, but as a result of their past, it is clearly seen that their love for one another is just an addiction. Similarly, through Debra Goodlett’s “Love and Addiction in Wuthering Heights” and Eric P. Levy’s “The Psychology of Loneliness in Wuthering Heights”, it is demonstrated how Heathcliff and Catherine’s infatuation is not love, but an addiction. Debra Goodlett states, “[Love] addiction occurs in people who have little to anchor them to life.” This type of addiction causes an increasing dependency on another person to feel gratification in their lives due to their lack of strong role models when they were growing up.
