She questions the reality and begins to wonder whether the expressions made by her uncle are actually the truth. I found this section quite challenging and I had to reread it several times to ensure that it was just speculation. At one point, I thought that the author’s uncle did not actually die and that this story was imagined. However, in the end, I understood that the narrator was only searching for comfort and that the realization that her uncle was dead was difficult for her to accept, hence the confusion between reality and illusion. In future readings, I will overcome these challenges by taking a slower reading pace to ensure that I grasp all the ideas presented by the author.
At the end of the novella, Equality was brasher and started using the word “I” in his monologues about how everything was going to change because of the amazing thing that he discovered and did all by himself. That was wrong of Equality to do because his friends helped him along the way in his journey and did not quit on him even though they could have been killed. His friends really helped and Equality was not as sincere and grateful for them as they were for him. There was definitely a huge shift in his character traits in the last two chapters of the
You had to have a reason to be happy, to feel any emotion. But once Equality ran away and was free, he experienced a happiness he’d never felt before. Perhaps the most important quote of the whole story is when Equality declares “I am. I think.
She was different because she was not humble like other nuns and she continued to write against the injustices committed against women in society: “ If I refrain even from that which is permissible for women—to teach by writing—because I know myself to lack the abundant talent needed for it, following Quintilian 's counsel: ‘Let each one learn, no so much by the precepts of others, as by following the counsel of his own nature’? ” (Juana 15). These types of writings put her in a vulnerable position with her fellow nuns and the patriarchy within the Church, but as long as Marquis de la Laguna ruled Mexico, Sor Juana and her creations were safe. However when he left, the Church did not tolerate Sor Juana’s backlash (Juana
During much of America’s history, the actions that would distinguish a woman as a “hero” was if she were living by male standards of morality (Hume, 9). If she was labeled this way people would consider her unladylike, and make her an unfit symbol of “heroine” for women. Katniss was considered a hero for all the districts. However, when she visited the Capital, they would dress her in feminism outfits. She wore dresses and makeup each time she was in the capital.
Sue Grafton disputes the social conventions set by men in the mystery genre. Her character Kinsey Millhone understands the power of mastering code and several other skills. This linguistically savvy character focuses on manipulating individuals into confessing secret information. Kinsey Millhone redefines the social order into a more desirable political view.

Yes he was more adventurous than most people, but that does not mean he wanted life to be a constant danger. from the very beginning of the book it can be seen that Chris did not have a liking for materialistic things. This is why it is mentioned on page 20 that Chris had no desire for gifts and would not accept the car that his parents offered as a gift, and in fact got mad at them for thinking he may have wanted it. Chis did not only explore because he “loved to live life on the edge.” It was also his way of escaping the world full full of wrong.

While living in the United States Pham learned how Vietnamese traditions were not accepted in his new country. He learned ho Asians are stereotyped.

Pham was able to benefit from an American education and eventually became an engineer, but even this led to racially motivated misgivings that eventually helped lead Pham to begin his two wheeled journey back to his ancestral
No one took the time to recognize his desires of freedom and solitude, which is why many were shocked when they found him missing. Merriam-Webster defines life as an overall vision of or attitude toward life and the purpose of life. McCandless’ view on life was extraordinary and he only lived the life he thought was suitable; he appreciated the underrated belongings of life itself and longed for a greater good. One may judge his decisions on foolhardy behavior, but McCandless knew what he wanted and went for it without reflection on others’ notions. “it is easy, when you are young, to believe that what you desire is no less than what you deserve, to assume that if you want something badly enough, it is your God given right to have it” (Krakauer 155) In any case, Chris McCandless was recklessly bold and did what most could not.
