“Wayman in Love” by Tom Wayman and “The Namesake” by Jhumpa Lahiri both discuss the effects societal judgements and comparisons has on relationships.

Dorothy Livesay was a leading Canadian poet with keen observation and ability to feel and express the precious moments of life. She was a prolific writer and won two Governor General’s Awards for Poetry.

Gopnik presents many issues plaguing youths, such as poor diet, and lack of exercise; in addition she briefly blames the industrial revolution and the information revolution as leading factors in why children are failing to achieve adulthood sooner in life and why they’re hitting puberty so quickly, however, she seems to focus primarily on teens and early adult’s brain chemistry.
Laura Esquivel in Like Water fir Chocolate interweaves a story of female oppression because of familial and cultural pressure throughout the conventional women’s area of romance and cooking.

In the 1920s and 30s, men did not treat women with much respect, and men did not allow women to do anything, other than be a housewife. Men took charge of women, and if women did earn any money their husband would take it away from them. Women did not have any rights, and nothing was done to change that for a long time.
