The major conflict seen in this story is person versus society. Societal rules and expectations imposed upon men and women creates an animosity between them. A woman is expected only to take care of the private sphere but not make an appearance in the public sphere whereas the man is not imposed with such rules. Also the conflict between person and soul.
