In the short storiesa? Story of an Houra? and a? A Rose for Emilya? the two main characters Louise Mallard and Emily Grierson are both similar and dissimilar. Both stories are about two different lives of two women: both of them with strict men in their lives. One of the women is married and the other wishes to be married. Both of these stories end in death. One woman is looking for love and the other wish to be free.
Both women were controlled by men. In a?A Rose for Emilya?, Emily is strictly ruled by her father and was not allowed to have other men in her live. For example, when Emilys father died, she was so worried about being alone that she did not want them to take his body. Later, when her boyfriend tried to leave her, she killed him and his body was not discovered until after she died. Whereas, in a?The story of an Houra?, Mrs. Mallard has a man in her life, but she wishes he was not. The reader can tell from her thoughts that her husband was a very controlling man. Word of his death made her feel free and liberated to live her own life.
Emily was not married, and always wanted to be. The fact that her father would not let her probably drove her mad. She ended up alone, when her lifes desire was to share it with another. Whereas, Mrs. Mallard, who was married, wishes she could be free from her binding marriage. Her marriage was inevitably what killed her.
