You said that on the afternoon of Wednesday, February 23, 1692 Mrs. Bridget Bishop was making a potion, and only witches make potions. What really happened,was the night before, her daughter fell ill, and Bridget was making soup to help her get better. These are my reasons for believing that Bridget Bishop is not a witch. There is no real proof that Bridget Bishop is a witch, and I have plenty of proof that Mrs. Bishop isn’t a witch. Thank you for reading my reasons for thinking that Bridget Bishop isn’t a
In A Miracle for Breakfast, it is written in the perspective of an indigent person who hopes for the greater good of those who prosper to give the poor more than a crumb, “At six o 'clock we were waiting for coffee, waiting for coffee and the charitable crumb”.

Elizabeth I and Tudor England, written by Miriam Greenblatt, tells about Queen Elizabeth I’s greatest accomplishments and struggles along the path to becoming the Queen of England. On September 7, 1533, Anne Boleyn gave birth to Elizabeth. Her father, Henry VIII, was desperately hoping for a son. He had divorced his first wife, Catherine, and beheaded Anne for not giving birth to sons. His third wife gave birth to his long-awaited son, Edward.
The poem that I wanted to analyze for this weeks discussion is "Minor Miracle" by Marilyn Nelson. The "Voice" of the poem is that of the poet. This is implied in the first sentence where the author prefaces the poem stating, "Which reminds me of another knock-on-wood memory." The whole poem is recounted by the poet as if she was reliving a memory or telling the story to some friends. The poem ends abruptly with "He climbed back into his truck and drove away," and does not allow any chance for the poet or her listeners to respond to the surprise ending.
Jasmine Harmston March 3, 2016 Character Analysis: Lizabeth of Marigolds Lizabeth is one to experience the formidable changes of flourishing into a grown woman, as can be seen throughout the story of ‘Marigolds’ by Eugenia Collier. Growing up in the decrepit time of the Great Depression, Lizabeth was unacquainted of the world outside her shanty neighborhood. Society’s burdened responsibility was thrusted upon her, though her childishness persona. Her callowness and immaturity demeanor ceased to exist when an act of sudden revelation ensued, she loses innocence-gaining her conscious mind of womanhood. Along with the other adolescents of the neighborhood, Lizabeth was innocent-still of youth.
When Lizabeth became a woman her first realization was that one cannot have both compassion and innocence. Compassion is showing pity for another’s sufferings. Just like Lizabeth was able to have compassion for Miss Lottie after hearing her father’s cry and tearing her garden up. She finally understood what Miss Lottie was going through and why she planted the marigolds. The marigolds symbolized hope for the Great Depression to soon end.
How successfully did Elizabeth I tackle the problems of her reign? Queen Elizabeth the first, daughter of King Viii and Anne Boleyn, reigned from 1558 to 1603. She faced many problems during this period of time, solving them efficiently and successfully. She survived imprisonment during her half sister’s reign just to become one of the best queens of all time. Even though she was the reason the Tudor monarch to end, she was also the reason for many of the beneficial things that England had.
Yolen managed to use the story of Sleeping Beauty to express how the story develops into two parallel stories. Becca is searching to unravel her grandmother’s story, and Gemma’s story at the extermination camp of Chelmno and afterwards with the partisans of Poland during World War II. Which is told through Becca perspective. Moreover the fairy
The theme of grief is shown throughout the poem Morning in the Burned House , which is set in post-apocalyptic times. Margaret Atwood visits the themes grief and loss of innocence in her poem. The poem starts off "In the burned house I am eating breakfast. You understand: there is no house, there is no breakfast" Repetition is seen here using the word breakfast, as she is emphasising no one is around and there is no routine as the lady is out of place and is confused. With the first couple of lines the poet is telling us that she is a liar.
I didn't quite get it until I looked at the poems of villanelles to get the rhyme scheme and rules down. A villanelle has a sort of "circular refrain" that repeats lines and rhythm through stanzas, a total of 19 lines broken up into five three-line stanzas and a refrain of four lines. Within the poem the first and second line of the first stanza become the last line in the second and fourth stanza and the third line of the first stanza becomes the last line in the third and fourth stanza, confusing to read but much easier to visualize when looking at the poem. With a rhyme scheme of aba and the last line of the first and second stanza become the last line of the refrain makes it for what sounds like a twisty poem. One line that I found interesting, "Figural development in a poem is possible in a villanelle.
