Sandra was able to express Esperanzas rollercoaster of emotions through literary devices so we could have a better understanding. Authors use Sandra’s method as well, to give us those realistic feelings associated with literary devices to help us make sense of what they’re writing. The central idea in The House on Mango Street is that Esperanza was just struggling for self-definition. This central idea was supported by Esperanza’s desire for a new name, Sire’s influence on her, and wrapping up her personality.I believe we can all learn from this book and realize that everyone has a phase like this, it might be difficult figuring out who you are. Although, once you do figure it out, never forget who you really were, Esperanza promised to never forget who she once
I saw you. It wasn’t fair!” (Jackson, 224) It is apparent that she is not necessarily distressed over the practice of the ritual, but specifically that she is the victim, as she states they should start over, so that a new victim will be chosen. “I think we ought to start over,” Mrs. Hutchinson said, as quietly as she could.” (Jackson, 223) This differs greatly from Jane, who begins to sympathize with the plight of all domestic women through her experience with the woman behind the yellow wallpaper. Although she initially frowned upon the woman’s efforts to escape, the more her mental health deteriorated, the more she began to relate her plight to that of the trapped woman, both prisoners desperate for escape. With her newfound revelation, she sought to save the trapped woman from her prison, subconsciously freeing herself in the process.
Literary Analysis for “Two Kinds” and “Rice and Rose Bowl Blues” (Revised Final Draft) In popular culture, we can always find different themes that the author or creator wants to convey in their work for the audience, a common one is following your heart. It is very important to be able to identify and analyze what message the author wants us to learn. In literature, themes are essential, because they give meaning to the story and enrich the content. The theme can be found through multiple literary devices, but in the case of ‘Two Kinds’ by Amy Tan and ‘Rice and Rose Bowl Blues’ by Diane Mei Lin Mark, two stories about girls breaking parental stereotypes, we see it through characterization. Characterization is very important because it shows us little clues of a character that eventually make up a bigger picture.
During Jem’s reading session, Mrs. Dubose falls into a state with “cords of saliva” collecting on her lips while her head rocked slowly “from side to side” (123). Her pain consumed so much of her that she could not even respond to simple questions like “Mrs. Dubose, are you alright?” (123). She knew this would happen to her, but chose to conquer the pain a little more each day. She knows Jem and Scout will think “she’s so nasty,” but she wants to come off the morphine because she wants to live freely so much that she will endure the suffering (123).
Hosseini illustrates this innate ability to preserve through characters like Mariam, “The years had not been kind to Mariam. But perhaps, she thought, there would be kinder years to come. A new life, a life in which she would find the blessings that Nana [her mother] had said a harami like her would never see” (Hosseini 256). Mariam has not only endured emotional torment, but the suicide of her mother, the rejection her father, abuse from her husband, miscarriages, and a war that has rained havoc on her homeland for decades. Yet, Mariam prevails to achieve the hopes she had since childhood.
One aspect of writing and language that the author says is important is poetry. Lorde explains how poetry is, “illumination” because through it you can voice your thoughts with words that have deeper meanings, which stimulate people to feel. When voices can be heard, changes can be made. For Lorde, once voices are heard people’s reactions result in change, towards a more equal world for women, especially women of color. The title of the essay, “Poetry is not a Luxury” is meant to abolish the belief that poetry is only for the privileged, but for the people who have been continually oppressed.
I used Dialectic Behavior Therapy (DBT) techniques with some of my clients. I was not trained in this therapy but was familiar with the idea of being in the here-and-now. This technique worked for my schizophrenic client by keeping her focused on what was happening each day by writing in a journal and distracting her from what she thought had been happening in her past. I was able to use Art Therapy with the client I had with PTSD, depression, and suicidal thoughts. I had one client on probation who was ordered to be in counseling before she could get off of probation.
Elizabeth Edwards once said, “Resilience is accepting your new reality, even if it's less good than the one you had before. You can fight it, you can do nothing but scream about what you've lost, or you can accept that and try to put together something that's good.” Her life experiences lead her to learn the hard way what exactly resilience is. Elizabeth Edwards models how changes in life shouldn’t bring one down. Being strong and fighting for oneself is much more important and helpful rather than sulking and comparing oneself to another. Using just this, comparison to others, Jeannette recalls her family’s past and the struggle they went through in her memoir, The Glass Castle.
