She nearly faints when Calpurnia finds Jem and Scout at the trial. “I didn’t think it wise in the first place to let them (go),” Aunt Alexandra utters bitterly to Atticus when he returns home from the trial. One of Alexandra’s main goals as mother is to keep Jem and Scout innocent from their society as they grow up. According to Aunt Alexandra, adolescents do not need to listen to racist remarks and talk about rape. In short, Aunt Alexandra may not be liked necessarily by Jem and Scout, but behind her toughness is a loving and caring

Although shy, I loved my friends and siblings and thought the best in every situation. It wasn’t until I grew older and received the guidance and outside perspective of my adopted mom that I realized how awful my home life was. I’ve since begun analyzing my behaviors and emotions that ran through my mind as a child to realize how to overcome the abuse I’d endured. The six books I’ve chosen as mirrors identify the emotions and behaviors I see myself having at a young age of nine or ten years old.
These two sisters have grown together all through their life’s, creating a strong bound, and the fact that her family and a “old guy” is taking away her sister is something she can’t stand. In the end Nea believes that she is saving Sourdi from Mr.Chhay and her mother. However what Nea does not understand in all her youth and idealism , is that sourdi does not want to be saved: She willfully accepts her fate and her marriage to Mr.Chhay because she finds financial stability and a secure future.
Situational irony is the difference between what is expected to happen and what actually occurs. In the poem, a young girl wants to attend a freedom march, a type of political rally, in downtown Birmingham. Her mother fears the march isn’t a safe place for her daughter, so she sends her to church instead. The situational irony is that the mother expects that the church will provide a safe place for her daughter while the march would not. What occurs, however, is the opposite.
Nanny is successfully able to convince her granddaughter through her own traumatic experiences and make her feel “sympathy” as she tells Janie she doesn’t want her life to be spoiled like her own life was. At first, Janie refuses to marry Logan Killicks. Nanny being the older one, defends herself by saying “put me down easy” since she can no longer care for Janie and only her wish is for Janie to get married and be protected from the dangers she and her own daughter faced. By calling herself a “cracked plate” Nanny further elucidates that she went through many hardships in her own life and wants to do the right thing for her granddaughter by
In the poem “The Changeling” by Judith Ortiz Cofer, I read it as she’s trying to get her father’s attention, she is acting to be someone else because she changes into her brother’s clothes, as a costume, until it’s dinner time and her mother asks her to take those clothes off, it’s then where everything is back to reality. In the poem “The Birthplace” by Cofer, she talks about her hometown and how it lacks features on the hills which will stop her from going places, she doesn’t go to churches that are full of the people who regret their wrongs, the roads just lead to other roads, and how towns are the same to other towns. In the poem “On the Island I Have Seen” by Cofer she talks about men who work hard in the sun while old men play dominoes in the shade, women in black dresses asking
Showing this kind of generosity can BE extremely difficult, but with God's help it will build new, deep relationships. For example, a woman around her twenties attended to our church, and our family had the opportunity to meet her, we called her Scout. We discovered she did not have a place to stay, my parents felt that God called them to let Scout live in our house till she got back on her feet again. We grew to have a friendship that would never have happened had we not answered God's call. God places hospitality in our lives to create strong and thriving relationships.

Do you have a sibling who is the complete opposite of you? Well, then you know how these two feel. A summary of their conflict is, Don John tried to destroy everything Don Pedro was trying to make and he ran away when he thought he would get caught and when one of the men who worked with John admitted it was one of his schemes, they sent men to capture John and eventually they did. In Much Ado About Nothing by William Shakespeare, Don John is a character foil of Don Pedro, mainly because Don John is immoral and Don Pedro moral, but they do happen to be brothers and because of those reason it affects how they are treated throughout the plot.
Many real world events inspired authors, like Rod Serling, to write stories and make TV shows. Emmett Till’s story was definitely a huge event that Serling was eventually able to write about. Rod Serling was an author that would write about important topics to always tell us or warn us about something if we aren't careful. Like many authors, Rod Serling was influenced by bird and important real world events and by some experiences he had gone through. At first, he struggled with being censored, but turned to science fiction to tell meaningful stories about events, such as Emmett Till’s death, and also many controversial themes like paranoia in “The Monsters are Due on Maple Street.”
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain is about a boy named Tom who's good behavior is overshadowed by his not so smart decisions. Some argue that “despite his successes and his charm, Tom is, in a very real sense, a bad boy.” Although that is true, he is a good boy at heart and all of his good actions outweigh his bad. Some will argue toms childish actions can be seen as bad, do not outweigh is good ones. They are wrong.
