About 124 years ago today, an important woman arrived at our colony, her name was Anne Hutchinson. She was one of our founders and a significant figure, not only known in this colony.

The Views from two Different Religious Authors Since the beginning of time, people have needed the reassurance of purpose to life. Even though they are all needing reassurance, they have different beliefs. Poets Anne Bradstreet and Jonathan Edwards have two different ways to show their faith through poetry.

Among her most shocking , those that raged against a long-dead father and a womanizing husband” (Montagne).

She ended her life on February 11, 1963. When she wrote her poems she used strong and painfully
Remembrance is the action of remembering something, a previous experience in which one has embedded deep in their mind. This is the theme in which my chosen poems embody. While the subject matter may differ, the language devices are similar to one another and the theme is the same. An example of this would be the two poems 'Paino' and 'The Mink' which each possess different styles and subjects but they both relate to the same theme. Furthermore, I believe the poems: 'Poem at thirty-nine', 'Remember', 'Ode of Remembrance', and 'For My Mother in Her Mid-90's', do exceptionally well to express this theme of remembrance.

When she states the phrase “we must know our mother’s names” it shows(?). which creates the contrast that I see when I read the poems: MORNING SONG by Silvia Plath and LIGHT GATHERER by Carol-Ann Duffy one idealizing and one honest about every bit about motherhood. Despite the difference in the mothers’ opinions the were very similar by using figurative language to create big images about
Kate Chopin, one of the most important and influential writers of her time, uses sensory language, symbolism, and themes to closely relate her short stories, A Respectable Woman, and The Story of an Hour, to her personal life. Chopin grew up in a house of all women, her mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who were very opinionated and down-to-earth people, and taught her to always think and act for herself. Kate quickly became curious about standards in society and the “norms” of women, all of which result in her success in the works of American feminist literature. As a young child, Chopin experienced two horrible deaths, one being her father, and the other her half brother.
In the poems ‘The Pomegranate’ and ‘This Moment’, Boland writes about her observations as a mother. In ‘The Pomegranate’, she learns that in order to allow children to grow and develop, we need to allow them to mistakes. She references back to the Greek myth of Ceres and Persephone, at first reminiscing that she as a young girl she related to Persephone, “an exiled child in the crackling dust of the underworld”. Yet, now, as a mother she relates to Ceres “ready to make any bargain to keep her” daughter safe and protected, however she knows that she can’t shelter her daughter if she is to grown up which is why “[she] will say nothing”. Boland celebrates the ordinary every day life in ‘This Moment’, using similes like “one window is as yellow as butter” showing the domestic setting of this poem.
The main point of The Federalist Papers and the Constitution was to unify America. The Federalist Papers outlined what American’s can expect from the new constitution.

During this time America had just finished fighting for their independence in the Revolutionary War.
Some of the questions Americans should be asking are: How does the deferred action policy differ from previous immigration policies, how was it set into motion, and how will the changes impact America short term and in the future. The United States of America was formed, even before it was a country, by immigrants. Well before the Constitution was written, there were people looking for refuge here. The colonists were not the first to migrate from elsewhere.
