As I read the book, The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls, I discovered how unfortunate other people’s lives can be. The four Walls children; Lori, Jeannette, Brian, and Maureen, all learned how to take care of themselves and each other. Their parents, Rosemary and Rex Walls, weren’t always there to help them when they needed it most. Based on this, I have realized that the four children yearn for freedom rather than safety. The narrator, Jeannette, admired her parents, especially her father.
he play “The Crucible” by: Arthur Miller told the story of Salem, a town in Massachusetts during the time of McCarthyism in 1692. The small town was turned upside down when someone mentioned witches and the townspeople began turning on one another one after the other. A group of girls were the culprits behind this whole tragedy saying they saw people with the devil when they couldn’t see anything at all. A universal theme in this play would be that jealousy contains more of self-love than of love, Abigail Williams did everything she could to get rid of Elizabeth Proctor so that she could have her husband John Proctor’s love all to herself but in reality he did not love her. Throughout it the play revolves around the conflict between the Proctors

Her faith is weakened at a certain point but then she starts to develop a new perception of God, she begins to see God as a universal being with no gender and race who is present everywhere and in everything that we love or do. She is now able to see God through people, nature, sex, and in the color purple. Alice Walker also gave importance to the value of female bonds and relationships or sisterhood as a means of coping and social support against the alienation experienced by Celie and other black female characters in the novel. Celie’s friends, mainly Shug and Sofia helped her to find her voice and stand up for herself. As the novel progresses, Celie develops strength and eventually gains her freedom towards the end.
Celie is a young 14 year old girl. Celie gets raped and beat by her father, Alphonso, and she cannot do anything about it. Celie has a pretty younger sister, Nettie, who her father also abuses and rapes. Her mother passed away so they have no mother figure. As she is going through all of the traumatic experiences, Celie writes to God for a guidance.
In the beginning of the story, Celie explains her life. She has a sister named Nettie, a very sick mother, and a father. Celie is abused mentally and physically by both her father and mother, Celie's mother eventually dies. Celie is raped by her father and gets pregnant twice. One baby was "killed" by her father in the forest, and the other she thinks was sold to some white family.
In the movie however it doesn't show how close the girls become, and how strong their bond is. One of the main points Shug´s character puts across is how she teaches Celie about herself, like the reader could see Nettie trying to do in the beginning of the story. In the book one of the most important things celie is able to do is stand up for herself, she is able to do this with the guidance and support given to her by shug. In the movie one can only assume Celie finds her strength over time given all the abuse she endures in her childhood, and

She is a smart, independent woman with a bright future. Celie has been there to support her, as she cares for her as a true sister would.
