Growing up I was always raised in a nice environment. Dinner at our kitchen table, trips to Reno, Six Flags to see the cute dolphins, we had a great bond between our family. When I was in elementary school, my friends and I talked about our families and what we were going to do during the weekend. My classmate told me that he was not able to do anything for the weekend because his parents would always be fighting. Quickly I began to have sympathy for a kid that I knew was a trouble maker. Sandra Cisneros does a great job of revealing the theme of the poem,”My Wicked,Wicked Ways” to the reader 's mind by using connotations and
Since the beginning of the written language, the reader's perception of a literary work has been based on their interpretation of how the story was portrayed. Differing points of view within the story generate diverse interpretations among readers. From Shakespeare to Faulkner, the aspect of differing viewpoints allows each story to convey contrasting feelings to the reader. In Eudora Welty’s Why I Live at the P.O., she uses a first-person view to reinforce this idea. The attitude of the narrator, sister, is biased in many respects to further her agenda. The slanted viewpoint of sister contributes to the story through her need for personal attention, the empathy the reader has for sister, and the inaccurate representation of the entire story.
Pity, the emotion in which the user feels compassion towards another person because of their sufferings.

It is not till the end where Rosaura regrets coming to her birthday party. Through the use of Rosaura’s obliviousness, the use of symbolism and the use of the Rosaura’s final realization, Heker invokes pity towards Rosaura.
Rosa was selfless and giving towards Max, in a different way to Hans Hubermann. Her ugliness lies in where she tends to abuse people verbally. In the start of the novel, when there was a crowd surrounding the area when they tried to ‘coax’ out Liesel from the car, she curses at the crowd by saying ‘What are you arseholes looking at?’, and her tendency to describe Hans Hubermann as a ‘Saukerl’, who Liesel starts to get influenced by. But Rosa shows her kindness, hospitality, compassion and love through harsh

On the other hand, the short story, "The Lady with the Dog" integrates the use of third person limited narrative. Third person limited narrative is used when authors only want the reader to know the thoughts and feelings of a specific character. With third person limited narrative, the narrator is not a character within in the story. This form of narrative presents minimal thoughts of one character while the rest of the characters are presented independently. Ultimately, "Cathedral" and "The Lady with the Dog" use different points of view, however, they are still capable of influencing how to reader perceives each text.
She stood up for herself and all the coloured women who came after her. August once said, “Get up from there and live like the glorious girl you are” (Kidd). Everyone needs to learn that they are special no matter what others say about them or how others make them feel. We are all different for a reason. We need to learn how to be independent and stand up for ourselves like Rosalene did in the novel.

“Thump! The jury finds you guilty! Three life sentences without parole!” the young boys and girls that hear this sentence generally aren’t considered the best of kids, however locking away a juvenile for life takes much more thought than it takes to address this sentence to a legal adult. In “Locked Away Forever” by Patricia Smith the question is attempted to be answered, which is should juveniles receive life sentences without chance of parole? In the article it states, “The court said that minors who commit terrible crimes are less responsible than adults: They are less mature, more susceptible to peer pressure, and their personalities are not yet fully formed.” In this quote the author is reasoning against life without parole because they are less mature and not fully developed. Although all crimes deserve proper punishment, juveniles should not receive life without parole because they are still developing and this punishment leaves no room for a second chance

Davis argues this viewpoint from the perspective as an unmarried black woman.
