“Child-man in the promise land” Kay S. Hymowitz and “Unpopular Opinion: Marriage Will Never Be a Feminist Choice” by Meghan Murphy talk about many of the same things in different ways throughout both of the articles. In “child-man in the promise land” the main focus of the article is how men don't want to grow up and they want to live the fun life and drink and party with their friends. In “ Unpopular Opinion: Marriage Will Never Be a Feminist Choice” it focuses on women and how they should be against marriage and she goes on to give many examples supporting why. Does getting married make a man a man and is it really something that everyone has to do?
said one of the detectives ( Dahl 4). They don’t know that the lamb was the weapon used to kill Mr. Maloney, and that is what Mrs. Maloney wants.

Slim contends Curley’s selfish thoughts by saying, “‘But you jus’ tell an’ try to get this guy canned and we’ll tell ever’body, an’ then you will get the laugh”’(Steinbeck 64). Slim confirms that he is only doing what is right when he jeopardizes his own security of well being.

Calpurnia is one of the characters that teaches Scout not to judge and to tolerate and respect the actions of others. Scout gets in trouble with Calpurnia, when she embarrasses Walter Cunningham by pointing out his eating habits at dinner; Walter poured syrup on his vegetables and meat with a generous hand. Scout says “ he’s gone and drowned his dinner in syrup, He’s poured it all over-” (Lee 32). Calpurnia calls Scout into the kitchen and says furiously “ There’s some folks that don’t eat like us, but you ain’t called on to contradict ‘em at the table when they don’t.
"Trying to be happy by accumulating possessions is like trying to satisfy hunger by taping sandwiches all over your body" (George Carlin). Comedian, social critic, and author George Carlin's words may seem laughable, but his underlying point rings true for our society today: fulfillment does not lie in material possessions. This idea of materialism appears in several pieces of literature, including Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury. Fahrenheit 451 features a 30-year-old "firefighter" named Guy Montag, who lives in a futuristic society revolving around technology such as wall-sized TV's and "seashell" radios. Though conscious of his luxurious lifestyle, and how fortunate he must be, he comes to the conclusion that constant self-indulgence leads
Mason Cooley once said,”The lonely become either thoughtful or empty.” Feeling alone has always been a big issue, whether it is in reality or in a fictional sense. Of Mice and Men demonstrates through the characters George, Crooks, and Curley’s wife, how a person's very surroundings can lead them to feeling lonely. George is always trying to get Lennie to understand his feelings or the importance of things, but Lennie’s inattentive isn’t helping. Crooks has to deal with discrimination because of his skin color and is all alone due to this.
Within the book, there are instances which state that women can’t/won’t do a certain task/thing because of reason/excuse. One example of this is when Scout asked Atticus, the Finch’s father, about why people in Maycomb couldn’t sit in the jury stand and mentioned Miss Maudie, a gentle woman who never lets others forget her thorns, Atticus replied, “For one thing, Miss Maudie can't serve on a jury because she's a woman-" (188). He says the reason for this is, “I guess it's to protect our frail ladies from sordid cases like Tom's. "(188) and also that he, “...doubt(s) if we'd ever get a complete case tried—the ladies'd be interrupting to ask questions. "(188).
I loved the counter where Grandpa kept the penny candy in large glass jars. If I was good and helped him pick up stuff that dropped on the floor, he would give me one piece of candy. That 's how I learned to work for Grandpa, but Dad kept telling me that I couldn 't work for candy all
“It 's impossible for men to direct the winds, all we can do is adjust the sail. Now fetch me more ale.” - Captain Lightfang Their hoarse cries reverberated through his frail frame, the stench of alcohol permeated his senses, and the dagger in his foot? Well it just penetrated his foot. This would mark the first of Jag’s memories, which were not of a faithful family or a fair father, but rather of pain and awe.

Narratives can teach readers how to connect different stories by discovering the themes of each one. Each author has a different argument and message their trying to tell but however the similar themes can connect. In Brent Staples “Just a walk on by: Black men in public space” and Dave Barry “Turkeys in the kitchen” each author tries to prove their argument of why certain stereotypes affect them and how they feel about it.

Within his narrative, Staples talks about accounts where he would be walking down the street just like a normal person and a white woman ahead of him would run away and cross the street to escape from him.
Later when Janie marries Jody Starks, we see another example of a member of the “in-group” enforcing the negative stereotypes the dominant culture has imposed upon them. Jody remembers the “other men figuratively wallowing in” Janie’s hair (55). He has her cover it up because “she was there in the store for him to look at, not those others” (55). Janie’s hair is a symbol of her sexuality and womanhood. Janie remarks that when Jody forced her to start wearing the scarf, their sexual relationship suffered.
