She works hard towards her goals and eventually grows into someone that is confident and someone she is proud of.

A childhood fantasy of many children of the world is to find their supposed soul mate. The person who will love them through thick and thin, the one who will be there at their side when they need it most. Often times in literature we see examples of soul mates, one such example is the bond between Marius and Epinine, not Cosette. Despite Cossette being portrayed as Marius’s perfect match, Epinine cared about Marius, knew Marius better than Cossette ever did, and had better life skills than Cossette. As any man or woman will know, a perfect match for someone is not based on beauty, but rather it is based on how much they care for you.
Friendship In the book, “Bridge to Terabithia” by Katherine Paterson, and the book, “Raymond’s Run” by Toni Cade Bambara, I believe the theme is friendship. Friends are one of the most important things in life, your friends shape you and make you who you are your true friends are the people who are always there for you and always back you up.In the book “Bridge to Terabithia” Jesse finds a true friend and in “Raymond's Run” Squeaky finds out that she needs a friend and that she needs to stop pushing people away. My first reason why I think that the theme is friendship is because they both lost their friend in different ways. Like in the book, “ Raymond’s run” she lost her friend by pushing them away while in the book, “Bridge to Terabithia” he lost his friend in a tragedy of death. Both lost their friends in different ways but they both still had a strong friendship.

The Goldfinch, serving as a final link between Theo and his mother, and representative of his last moments with her, still remains so important to Theo because of the connection to his mother. While he disdains the life and its fleetingness, it is from the life of his mother that he gains such a high appreciation for art. Within Sarah Nicole Prickett’s “Style is Fate,” a literary criticism of The Goldfinch for The New Inquiry, Prickett asserts, “The Goldfinch is a brace against the void.” It is interesting to consider how the Tartt herself employs one of the main themes of the novel in the creation of her work. Within The Goldfinch, art is a brace against the abyss, and yet The Goldfinch, a piece of artwork itself, also serves this purpose, as a brace against the
However, Bradstreet’s love for her husband was so strong and fervent that she had to put it in writing.

She not only teachers Celie to love herself and others, but to realise that she does not have to accept to treatment she is given by men.
