“The descriptions provided by Anderson are often quite intentional. It seems almost silly to even question whether his character descriptions would be intentional, however, it is important to note that the details he gives are given for a reason, often symbolic,” ( GradeSaver).

Girls can be mean on their own and so can boys, but when you put them together you can have an even worse situation on your hands.
In the last decades of the 20th century, Italy underwent a transformation towards a late modern society marked by increased mobility, a pluralism of lifestyles and decreased importance of religion and traditional networks.

In “ How it Feels to Be Colored,” Hurston shows that there will always be difficult times, but being able to learn and take an advantage out of the adversity will show a great benefit. Taking a bad experience and being able to know your worth even if most do not will give you an advantage, Hurston says, “ How can any deny themselves the pleasure of my company?
