The message Alice Sebold is trying to convey is to listen to yourself The Lovely Bones is a meaningful yet depressing story about how people move on from tragic things that can happen in their life. The novel is based upon the Authors personal experience. Which we can see clearly throughout the novel.

Alice Sebold makes the reader really think about the story and how it could happen to you.
A lesson that can never taught enough is to be careful of what you say about others. Miller demonstrates this with the characters of Elizabeth Proctor and Abigail Williams, they are foil characters, meaning they are polar opposites and bring out the worst in each other. Elizabeth is a strong Christian woman who doesn 't hardly hold a grudge against anyone, always tells the truth, and is selfless. Abigail however is full of hate and revenge, lies to get what she wants, and thinks she runs the town of Salem during the trials. The Crucible by Arthur Miller is a play set in the 1600’s in the puritan village of Salem, Massachusetts.
Dwight Okita 's poem showed us about American identity has more to do with how you experience culture than where your family came from. Details of the texts such as the speaker describing herself as a typical teen girl, seeing that she dislikes chopsticks, something that we associate with Japanese culture, and telling us that she was the typical American meal of hot dogs. In Cisneros 's story, she tells us about the narrator 's American identity contrasts with her awful grandmother’s strong Mexican roots. But the Americans George the narrator based on her looks. Without this liked grandma of first praise for her American children and grandchildren in a barbaric country, which seems to contrast Michele, Keeks, and Juniors love of American culture, cause we can see, based on their heroes and villains game, which takes its references from popular American culture.
Even though the book tells a sad story, the use of logos makes the book a staple in raising awareness of human trafficking. Using experience, statistics, and reality, the novel instills both urgency and fear in its readers. The main character, Lakshmi, relates to a specific group of girls on an age level, yet her life does not relate to the Western lifestyle. The girls reading this book do not garden cucumbers on a hillside or tie aprons tight around their waist to evade the pain of hunger. McCormick writes to young western girls because they are the next generation women that both care and can make a difference.
In the novel Shadow Tag, the author Louise Erdrich creates aesthetic distance in multiple layers. The character of Riel, the narrator, has “the gift of omniscience” (251) and exists as an artist, who combines her memories with her mother’s diaries in order to tell the story of her parents. Reality in this novel is ambiguous since shadows portray transcendence. Erdrich creates a world where truth and respect, what Irene desires, become ambiguous, and aesthetic distance becomes the beginning of the end for Gil and Irene’s existence. Even though Riel’s aesthetic distance from her story is not harmful, Gil’s distance from Irene exhibits hostility.
“She was a long time with the milk, and gazed fondly at the silhouette of Shirley’s dimpled face. Freida and she had a loving conversation about how cu-ute Shirley Temples was. I couldn’t join them in their adoration because I hated Shirley (Morrison 19).” Readers quickly observe that Frieda wants to see and absorb the concept of beauty. Claudia, on the other hand, thinks that Shirley is just a social norm, not actually something that represents beauty and she does not understand why beauty has to take the form of someone like Shirley Temple.
We can claim that Rhys’s main aim was to remove Bertha from the character of the non-identified wife locked away in Thornfield, give her the proper soul and identity, inform about her childhood and youth, thus the reader will understand her state of mind in Jane Eyre and will not consider her only the insane Rochester’s wife, but as Antoinette Cosway. Obviously, Jean Rhys removed the cover of the mystery from the eerie, unhuman laugh and screams of the unknown character in Jane Eyre and showed their new, more rational and surprising origin. Moreover, Rhys enabled the reader to understand the reasons of Bertha’s madness and her hopeless condition and hoped her character will no more arouse the aversion, but sympathy and mercy. Evidently, the novel is narrated from
When Calpurnia is scared she is still able to comfort Scout such as a mother would to her child by saying, “‘Don’t you fret,’ Calpurnia whispered to me, but the roses on her hat trembled indignantly,” (Lee, 158). When it is clear that Calpurnia and Scout have no relation, whatsoever, she still is able to reassure her. She continually proves her solicitude towards Scout by teaching her about what goes on in the world and by caring about her well being, mentally, emotionally, and physically. Calpurnia knows that they would not be connected other than the fact that she works for them and has to watch over them. Nevertheless, Calpurnia goes above and beyond when she decided to take their own needs before her own, by comforting them and not letting them worry about something, when she is clearly worried herself.
She perfectly depicts the struggles, sufferings, and salvation that William Faulkner wanted writers to compel the readers with. Walls quoted Dylan Thomas, "Dark is a way and light is a place, Heaven that never; Nor will be ever is always true." She includes this quote because it represents the nature of her past, present, and future. The past that Walls went through with her dysfunctional family, that was like a gem in a pile of rocks. Although her past might be hard, she struggled and achieved the satisfying victory she accomplished in the present and future.
Every good fairy tale has an inherent truth that means something to someone of any age generation ,race ,color or creed. Whether its Beauty and the beast telling you not to judge a book by its cover or it’s the three little pigs telling you the virtue of preparation, they are all connected but a universal narrative that contains a concise message. Both of these key parts are present in zora Neale hurston 's contemporary love story their eyes were watching god.. This book is centered around the life of janie a woman in a scandalous relationship with a younger man named teacake who is considered a vagabond by his community and their blossoming romance and how it affects not only their lives but the their small southern community as a whole.

The killing of her father works, but they should exchange some witty banter. The flashback with Angelique regarding the women slaves is not needed, it hinders the pace, and her backstory is enough. Angelique can 't hurt Leigha and this shows her vulnerability and makes her complex.
When I read Museum Indians I thought that the metaphor most important to the text was “I am her shadow and witness” This quote from the story means that the author feels like her mother is the main part of anything the two do while she is in the background, hidden and unseen. The effect it has on the text is that the reader is now able to comprehend that throughout the whole story that she compares herself to her mother. The tone I receive as the reader, is disappointed and insignificant. This is because when she describes her mother it is all sunshine and lollipops but when she writes about herself it is like a gloomy day with rain.
Through the weaving together of these voices Brennan is able to analyze Sosua from a transnational scale and chooses to draw from the tradition of ethnography in shaping her work. As George Marcus and Michael Fischer have demonstrated ethnography must be treated as a “form of representational literature”, wherein the anthropologist must “move forward by writing in the ironic mode” (Marcus & Fischer 443). In light of this information Brennan attempts to avoid literary plotting and rhetorics of romance, tragedy, and comedy by constantly reminding the viewer that “very few women ever make it out of poverty”, only some women “break even” and that some may be “worse off after coming to Sosua” (Brennan 20, 56,
This short story is an embellishment to illustrate the impact of the Rest Cure. “The story is not intended to drive people crazy, but to save people from being driven crazy, and it worked,” Charlotte Perkins Gilman declared (Siegel, 2008). Similar to Lauren Hale, countless women are able to resonate with Gilman and “The Yellow Wallpaper” (2008). Lauren Hale explains being able to identify with the main character due to her own journey of motherhood and insanity thereafter. Charlotte Perkins Gilman successfully incorporated a realistic insanity into the main character of the short story as well as exposing the mental health diagnoses and cures for the 19th century.
