sensitive. It is these difference that helps the wives in Trifles find the clues needed to solvethe crime, while their husband missed the same evidences.Other than that, the threatening effect of isolation on women, is another theme of theplay. Men are better suited with loneliness and isolation. For example, John Wright, isdescribed as a hard-working farmer who tend to kept to himself, and no one other than hiswife knew him very well. The women, on the other hand, are deeply affected by isolation. Forexample, Mrs. Peters recalled when she and her husband were homesteading in Dakotacountryside and lost her only child, leaving her alone in the house while her husband wasout, farming.Moreover, isolation drove Minnie to murder. Mrs. Hale remembered her as a happyand outgoing young girl in her pretty clothes before she got married. Her life was basicallylike a prison, they lived in a gloomy farmhouse ‘‘down in a hollow’’ where Minnie couldn’teven see the road. Unfortunately, the couple was childless and Minnie’s only joy of her life,the yellow canary that sing to ease her loneliness was killed by John.In conclusion, Trifles basically telling the readers about how women being oppressedand are insignificant in the eyes of the society back then. The stereotypes of women areweak and incapable, women things are trifles and men were simply ignoring the needs andattention of a women which actually could lead to depression and end up to such tragicaccident. We should appreciate the women in our life, as they may look strong andindependent inside yet they are long for love and appreciation.
