But what would they think of me? what if he's not there again? I'm sure he'll be embarrassed to see me.
Man v. Nature
Why do you hate me rain?!!!!!!
Man v. Society
Where will you be going to church on the Sabbath?
This is Man vs. Self because Lyddie is arguing with herself over whether or not to go back to visit Charlie. In the text it states, "If she got an early start the next day, perhaps she could stop by once more at the mill... but, no... she couldn't stop by again and ask for Charlie and have him at school again. What would they think of her?" (pg.37)
This is Man Vs. Nature because Lyddie experiences a minor natural disaster on her way to freedom. This tormenting rain forces her to stop on her journey to Lowell. According to the text, "Then, just at dusk, the sky opened, and it began to rain--not light spring showers, but cold, soaking torrents of rain, streaming down her face, icicling rivulets down her chest and legs." (pg. 47)
This is Man vs. Society because Lyddie's roommates force her to go to church. Amelia, Betsy, and Prudence all make her go to church so that she seems respectable even though America is a free country. In the text, it says, " Regardless of the state of your immortal soul, the corporation requires regular attendance of all it's girls. It makes us look respectable," (pg. 57)
