Hendrix for the University of Carolina Press, Hendrix has some complaints/critiques of the book that I find interesting. At the end of his review, he states that he was disappointed in the way in which the book was included. In the conclusion of A Proper Sense of Honor, Cox talks about how the enlisted veterans (not the officers) of the Civil War were not treated as the war heroes they rightly deserved to be treated as. Most of the veterans just went back to their previous lives of low social and economic status. Hendrix states that a more traditional conclusion, that restates the themes of the book would have been a better choice.

After episodes twisting real into fantasy, a young couple sit by and exclaim the hard truth. Namely, a young boy said, “Why does she come here at all-who wants her?”(128). Once hearing that real hash statement the protagonist fantasy world came crashing down, then hurried home. To illustrate, “But today she passed the baker’s by, went into the little dark room-her room like a cupboard- and sat down…”(129). Upon dashing home, the readers notice an external conflict Miss Brill and society.
The tale to be interpreted is Charles Perrault’s, “Toads and Diamonds”. This tale type is AT 480: The Kind and the Unkind Girls. The tale is to be analyzed through a Socio-Historical analysis. This type of analysis fits best with this particular tale because, it distinctively captures the strict norms and values placed on women of that era. What is meant by this is that, this tale shows some of the many tasks that women of that time were expected to complete, such as, work in the kitchen, run errands, and overall just work continuously to provide for their families; as well as how they were expected to act.

No two employees are the same and the experience is akin to meeting a new friend. I love how working for this brand allows your individuality to shine. Lush would make a good fit for me as I 'm friendly, reliable and have knowledge of the products. People say that I 'm easy to talk with and I 'm great at getting people to open up. All in all, I would love to be in the Lush family.
Anyways it was the day of prom and my sixth grade self was trying to look fabulous for Zach and his almost as cute younger brother Josh. As I get out of the shower I thought I’d walk out and get some advice from my mom and sister on what to wear. WHat I found though was the entire GRant family sitting on my couch staring at me in my towel. I could feel the heat rushing up my face slowly burning the reddest color into my cheeks and for a brief minute I must have resembled a deer in headlights because I just stood there shocked at the sight of them.
The Sisterhood of The Traveling Pants, written and published by Ann Brashares in 2001, is a book about four friends, spending the summer apart sharing pants that magically fit them all. The cinematic version was released on May 31, 2005, with a similar yet very different storyline compared to the young adult novel. For the most part, the cinematic version did a mediocre job at recreating the basic foundation of the book. For instance, the book starts out with Carmen, a heavier half Puerto Rican girl, thrift shopping with one of her best friends Lena and Lena’s sister Effie. Carmen buys the pants, but throws them in the back of her closet only to be found again at the beginning of summer.
Women were considered to be weak, also were ordered to stay home and become a housewife. Yet, it is interesting how the author made the only daughter in the family become an easy target for men to have sex with. Dewey Dell said, “And we picked on toward the secret shade and our eyes would drown together touching his hands and my hands and I didn’t say anything. I said ‘What are you doing?’ and he said ‘I am picking into your sack.’ And so it was full when we came to the end of the row and I could not help it.’” (27). In this scene of the book where Dewey Dell was with Lafe and he made a move on her and her “sack” that led both of them having sex, at first Dewey Dell knew what Lafe was hinting at her, whether she agreed or did not agree with his action, she did not have the voice to speak up.

Y’know, I think these kids spend far too much time hanging around with an old lady. You’d think their parents would think the same when they were invited for a sleepover at a haunted house. This show tries to explain the unbelievable (ghosts) with the unbelievable (aliens) yet again, which confuses me. Not a fan of the recurring Professor Rivers, with her naive personality and name too similar to Dr Song. Cool to see Donald Sumpter now he’s appeared as Rassilon in Hell Bent, and also twice in the classic show.
