As people age, they grow wiser, equipped with an archive of memories derived from the multitudinous experiences of their lives. In his novel, On Canaan’s Side, Sebastian Barry uses 89 year-old Lily Bere, a protagonist with such wisdom, to fully examine the complexity and variety of human experience. These memories often reveal a dichotomy between the positive and negative experiences in Lily’s life, as well as the irony of the novel’s title. A person’s life never consists solely of good or bad events, an idea that is evidenced by Lily’s memories of her life throughout the novel. There is great sorrow every times she loses a loved one, such as Tadge, Cassie, Joe, or Ed.
She used personification to give animals human traits to show that Beauty did not have it horrible while at the castle of the Beast. Instead Beauty had birds at her disposal that would sing for her when she wanted to, and she also had monkeys that would do anything for her, like getting her anything she needs like her curtains open or carrying anything that she needed, like the chest full of treasures for her family. Not only did Villeneuve use personified animals but she also used the different ways that love was used. She wrote that Beauty finally realized how much she loved the Beast after she spent some time away from him and she returned to him dying, as if she was homesick from him. When personification and love were not enough in Villeneuve’s writing, she added feministic traits to Beauty’s characteristics.
Claudia Rankine’s powerful book of nonfiction poetry, Citizen: An American Lyric, deals with everyday microaggressions faced by African-Americans in the United States. There is a scene in the book in which a boy is knocked over and then ignored by a man in a subway station. In Keeanga-Yamahtta Taylor’s “From #BlackLivesMatter to Black Liberation,” there is talk of solidarity - what it means and what it could mean for members of struggling groups to unite in such a manner. In this essay, I will argue that the aforementioned scene in Rankine’s book exposes the solidarity, and lack thereof, between white and nonwhite groups in the United States through the use of analogy. In order to understand how solidarity will be used in the essay, it is important to contrast how Taylor uses it and how it will be used in relation to Rankine’s work.
Age is generally not a concerning manner in day to day life when racism and sexism are prevalent topics of interest. However, the underlying fear of the unknown often results in acts of repulsion or loathing. When it comes to comics, or even most fictitious stories, it is rare to see an old person holding importance. Lucy Knisley however, uses the comics medium and the genre of travelogue to tell her experience of travelling with her grandparents. In a boat, bringing together the young with the old, she discovers the flimsiness of age and subtly shows the life undergone in the latter years of life.
Eugenia’s use of literary devices complement the theme, which is swiftly experiencing the loss of innocence. Colliers use of dark symbolism conveys the narrator's nostalgia for the past, because the reader comes to understand where Lizabeth is from and how she perseveres. In the beginning of the story, Lizabeth says to herself “When I think of my youth, all that I seem to remember is dust-the brown, crumbly dust of late summer- adrid sterile dust that gets into the eyes and makes them water, gets into the throat and between the toes of bare brown feet”(Collier 228). The author shows how Lizabeth only remembers the bad features about her town, like the dirt. The audience sees how the dirt symbolises poverty and oppression.

“If love is judged by its visible effects, it often looks more like hatred.” As stated in the quote, individuals tend to express their affection towards their beloved in rather aggressive manners, and thus the process of transferring one’s love to another often times are interpreted as hatred. However, this is only when love is judged to the extent of visible effects. The actions actually show insight of their genuine love, but it’s the clumsiness in expressing that people mistakenly perceive as “loathing” and “detestation.” As a result, the relationship of people are developed in contrary to the original intent of the individual’s actions, creating disputes. In William Gibson’s drama based novel, The Miracle Worker, the characters also struggle
