From her early childhood, Sullivan faced hardships everyday regarding family life, eventually resulting in her
David teaches Petra about her powers, but she is already a lot stronger than David, Rosalind, Michael or anyone in the group by such a young age. At first she cannot control her powers and she summoned David when she was in danger.

When David and Sophie were little, they used to play and talk to each other all the time.
The intended purpose of the play was to teach about the importance of remembering your past. Throughout the almost the entirety of the play we see examples of this, for example, Mister Matternot turns out at the end to be Iris’s father. However, by the time he is reunited with his coat he has spent several years away from his family because he couldn’t remember who he was, where he came from or his past. When he was reunited with his coat he remembers who he was, why his hands are cut, and who his family is and is finally able to return to Nocturno. Also, both the mom and later the daughter lose their Past Coats and once they do, they both behave nearly identically at first, not knowing who anyone else is, who they are, or what is going on.

The Odyssey and Speak both have many common archetypes. The characters suffer, and they go through rebirth and they also go through a sense of loss. In Speak Melinda was raped by one of her classmates and was keeping it a secret her entire freshman year, in the Odyssey, Odysseus was trapped on Calypso’s island for years and was forced to lay with Calypso. The characters’ rebirth in The Odyssey and Speak are both very similar; Melinda finally realizes it is okay to tell someone if something like that happens to her, and Odysseus finally makes it home and is able to feel clean again, and to be with his love Penelope. In both readings, the main characters go through a sense of loss, Odysseus is physically lost at sea, and is trying to make it back home, and Melinda has lost sense of who she is and doesn’t feel herself anymore.

In order to truly resolve these concerns, it must start with revamping the way the educational system works.

Transformation with Words Known as a violent, black civil rights activist Malcolm X revolutionized his unforgiving, street life to independent, educated pioneer.

Initially presented as an uneducated kid, who settled on wrong decisions and join with the wrong group, Malcolm's vocabulary definitely started colloquial and narrow. Indirectly he received loathsome propensities, yet he embraced the informal dialect basic to these areas.
