Her greatest inspiration was her grandmother. She liked her grandmother because she believed she was strong, hardworking, and kind. An example was when she took care of Melissa Hoebee's grandfather when he was very sick so that he would not go to a nursing home. Unfortunately, Melissa Hoebee was sad when her greatest inspiration passed away at 2009 and wrote a speech about her to say for her funeral. Her speech was a way for her to say goodbye to her grandmother.
She does not know I will turn out bad. (28-31) The speaker recalls when her father was having an affair and its effect it had on her mother. Her mother was obviously upset, but the speaker states that time healed her pain. Throughout the poem, the speaker’s mother seems to be upset.

In the beginning, the family was closely connected; however, the death of the mother in both versions greatly weakened the familial ties felt as a group of three people. Cinderella was troubled by her new stepfamily in the film and still felt close to her late mother, just as her father did. The Grimm version saw Cinderella’s father
His world's perspective is being influenced by the confusion he has with his mother's behaviour. The queen, Gertrude, once "... Followed [Hamlet's] father's body, like Niobe, all tears ... would have mourned longer - married with [Hamlet's] uncle" (I.ii.150). Hamlet compares her mother to Niobe who cried for a very long time for her children's death that she turned into stone. Gertrude does a similar act towards her husband's death but only for a short period of time.
And how it’s hard for a parent to let go. Olds talks about family life as well she talks a lot about the abuse she went through as a child and her relationship with her father. In the poem “The Victims” Olds is talking about how she is excited that her father has left. She is glad that her mother divorced him, “When mother divorced you, we were glad, she took it and took it in silence” (Poemhunter). In this poem Olds seems to be excited that her father has lost his job as well,” We were tickled to think of your office taken away, your secretaries taken away, your lunches with three double bourbons, your pencils, your reams of paper” (Poemhunter).
This traumatic event appears in Plath’s poetry as an end to her wholeness and her perfect childhood (Kroll 1). In the poems she wrote in her younger years, the part of Sylvia that is left behind from her father’s death has been “amputated from reality; it is incomplete, false, because an essential part of her has been buried with him” (Kroll 1). Plath does not feel complete again until she meets someone to replace the hole in her heart that her father left, which was Ted Hughes. Once she met Hughes, they inspired each other’s poetry and success. When Plath became pregnant with a child, her creativity was stimulated and she was put in touch with her deepest resources (Kroll 1).
“The Story of an Hour”, created by Kate Chopin, is a short story that shows the emotions of a new-found widow in a time where women’s rights aren’t as they are today. The story starts off by introducing Mrs. Mallard as only a woman with great heart trouble who needs to be taken care of as she is presented with the news of her, supposedly, dead husband. She later finds that the death of her husband transformed from heartache to freedom and becomes spontaneously overjoyed. According to the way it was written, two themes could be drawn from this short story. One main theme that could be drawn from the story was the “Role of women during marriage”.
In the book Literary and Cultural Theory by Donald Hall, he discusses key principles which define feminist analysis and its subcategories. Kate Chopin’s short story, “The Story of An Hour,” is about a woman named Louise Mallard who was told that her husband died and she finds joy in her freedom. However, her husband turns out to be alive and when he returns home, Louise dies from devastation. In Chopin’s book The Awakening, Edna Pontellier is different from most women in society and has been rebellious for most of her life with fantasies of forbidden loves. Despite her responsibilities as a wife and mother of two boys, she continues to rebel by having
In the first chapter Orleanna is the narrator who describes the setting and talks about a ruin that is so bad that it does not seem possible that it could have happened. She also goes on to foreshadow the death of her youngest child, Ruth May. She also asks for forgiveness and discusses the reasons for why it took her so long to leave her husband. In the last chapter it seems as though Ruth May is the narrator who is responding to her mother. As stated in the first chapter, there is a “woman with four girls in tow.” In the last chapter “the same woman...only [has] three daughters.” This shows that this is occuring after Ruth May’s death and she is saying, “Mother, you can still hold on but forgive, forgive and give for as long as we both shall live I forgive you, Mother”
In Kate Chopin's "The Story of an Hour" we go through an hour of Mrs. Mallard's life as she learns of her husband's death and embraces the freedom this brings forth. This new-found freedom is short lived as the sight of her allegedly dead husband walks through the front door, Mrs. Mallard succumbs to her death immediately. This story, although it is short, it is deeply symbolic, filled with irony that is used to achieve major themes of freedom and societal views. Mrs. Mallard's heart condition is used as a symbol of the way society views women. Women tend to be viewed as delicate, emotionally and physically.
