Your shoes Your shoes Is a short story by Michele Roberts about a mother writing a letter to her daughter who has left home and how she reflects on her own life, past and family Michele Roberts as a writer interested in women´s rights and how they were treated before. In an interview for the BBC, she says: "The way that women were treated in the religion I grew up in, which was Catholicism, made me a writer - because women were seen as the source of evil in the world, the source of sin. We led men astray, we had to be forgiven for being women before we even began to try and be good, we had to get over having the bodies we had. This really pushed me to wanting to write as a way of opposing what was very constricting and actually painful in my life.” From that we can see how she focused

O’Connor also shows, in this quote, the theme Good vs. Evil for how the grandmother attempted to convert the misfit to her religion instead of going through with his evil scheme. O’Connor’s writing style was very unique and one of a kind.
In direct contrast to this is the image of Twyla's mother, a woman who wears revealing pants and a ragged old jacket and curses in church. The authors successfully communicate to the readers their belief that, no matter how hard we might try to avoid it, class is indeed a major factor in today's
In A Narrative of the Captivity and Restoration of Mrs. Mary Rowlandson, Rowlandson writes about the hardships she endured during this time and her journey of her captivity. Rowlandson learned about herself during this time; her relationship with God became more apparent, it made her stronger as a woman, and she realized that nothing in this world should be taken for granted. These are reasons why Mary Rowlandson says, “It is good for me that I have been afflicted.” (288).

Some symbols that are associated with Saint Catherine are: a quill and blank books because God taught her how to write, a ring because Catherine had a “divine marriage” with God, and cloth and oil because she was one of three women to be named a doctor of the church. St. Catherine’s Feast Day is April 29 and is the Patron of Fire Prevention. She died at age 33 April 29 because of a stroke in Rome and her body was found incorrupt in 1430. A specific devotion of St. Catherine is her love of Jesus and the Holy Trinity. She always believed in Jesus and had faith that he had a plan.
Puritans have shown that more often than not, they have the same philosophy regarding their religious views and moral values, but often tend to express them in different ways. Anne Bradstreet wrote a poem, “Here Follow Some Verses upon the Burning of our House, July 10, 1666.” Her poem was about a personal experience where, although she had lost everything, including her home, she came to the realization that everything she had, came from God, all she had to do was to leave her troubles and worries in his hands. Jonathan Edwards wrote a sermon, “Sinners in the Hands of an Angry God”. In this sermon, Jonathan voices his belief in a strongly way stating how people should conform to his idea of a Puritan lifestyle, otherwise the consequences of not being one would be Hell. Although both authors are trying to portray the same idea, they have very different ways of expressing

Anne believed that even if a person showed levels of disrespect towards you; the best compass is being able to address the person in love. Her insights that love should be the driving force of a person’s actions, and having the ability to show mercy is an important demonstrative of a person’s level of
When one of Paul’s best friends Kemmerich dies, Paul is the one who has to tell his mom about the bad news. One quote that points to this is, “I must go and see Kemmerich’s mother… This quaking, sobbing woman who shakes me and cries out on me: ‘Why are you living then, when he is dead?’” (181). Paul had enough bravery to talk to his dead friend’s mother about how her son died. Paul has to lie to Kemmerich’s mother or else she would have been even more upset than she had been when she heard the bad news. Paul is devastated when his friend died but stays brave because he knew with war comes death.
