This quote shows that even in this time where they live in a life where they are being manipulated, Winston is still living in a time where he is experiencing hatred, but still maintains what keeps him normal or humane, which keeps him separated from everyone else. This hate is showing that people still have hate for each other and still want to kill each other but it also shows the true human he is by helping her when she was threatened. (82 words)

Nurse Ratched begins to talk about another patient named Harding, and his issues with his wife.

Taylor comes from a nontraditional family. She was raised by her mother, who worked long hours as a housekeeper to support Taylor and herself. Her father, Foster Greer, left her mother when he found out that her mother was pregnant. Her mother doesn 't mind that Foster left; in fact, she often tells Taylor that "trading Foster for [you] was the best deal this side of the Jackson Purchase." As Taylor matures and is exposed to horrible things that fathers can say and do to children, she feels quite lucky to have grown up without a father. The resiliency of Taylor 's mother and her commitment to Taylor, as well as her indifferent attitude toward men, represent Kingsolver 's feminist

With the exception of Angel and Lou Ann’s relationship, it seems like every personal interaction in The Bean Trees is equal parts of give and take. For example, Virgie Mae helps Edna Poppy who is blind, while Edna Poppy runs interference on Virgie’s inappropriate remarks. Lou Ann teaches Taylor how to hone her abilities, and Taylor calms and reassures Lou Ann. Even Estevez and Esperanza are symbiotic; they have been through so much, with their illegal immigration that they cannot function outside of one another. In what ways do these relationships, and the other, less prominent relationships in The Bean Trees promote a network of reliance? Think of the quote, “It takes a village to raise a child", how do these reciprocal relationships enable

It has often been said that once you spend enough time with someone and create a strong bond with them, you end up becoming very close and considering them family. What has also been said is that we find friendships when we need it most. As important as family is in real life, it is often shown that in literature, authors use this concept to offer a clear understanding on how close an individual can get to someone within months. Barbara Kingsolver demonstrates the importance of family through Taylor in her novel The Bean Trees, as she creates strong relationships on her way through life.
The two themes are control and technology. The reason control fits the book is it’s about a government confining the people. Technology is one of the main themes in they this book because when this novel was written it was set in the future. Also in the book, Big Brother uses crazy technology to always know and keep track of what his party members are doing.
“You can’t win if you wip us. You’ll still be where you were before- at the bottom. And we’ll still be the lucky ones with all the breaks. So it doesn’t do any good, the fighting and the killing. It doesn’t prove a thing. We’ll forget it if you win, or if you don’t. Greasers will still be greasers and Socs will still be Socs.”

In the story “The Bass, the River, and Sheila Mant,” W.D. Wetherell uses indirect characterization to create a lazy, rude, selfish, and basic girl named Sheila Mant. An example from the text is, “There was an extra paddle in the bow, but Sheila made no move to pick it up. She took her shoes off and started dangling her feet over the sides.”(Pg. 17). This supports Sheila is lazy because she lets the narrator do all the work. This is important because Sheila is most likely spoiled and has never really had to work for anything in her life. Here’s another piece of evidence that support my topic sentence, “ ‘I think fishings dumb,’ she said, making a face. ‘I mean, it’s boring and all. Definitely dumb.’ “(Pg. 17). This means that Sheila is rude
The experiences that have influenced Missy's life include the social structure of Pittman County, high school and her homelife. Her homelife has influenced her when her mom wanted to prepare her before she left. An example of this in the novel is when her mom is trying to teach her about her car and some of the things that can happen when on the road. “What do you do if i let the air out of the front tire?” (Kingsolver,14). This quote is talking about how Missy's mom is trying to help her know how to work with her tire and change it for a new one being that Missy has a fear of exploding tires and tires in general it was something she needed to know. Another example of how her homelife has influenced her is how much taylor wants to leave home it’s seen through when she buys her first car to drive down to Tucson Arizona, also when she has thoughts of just wanting to get
Scenes of kitchens very unlike ours materialize, full of strange utensils like salamanders (long-handled tools for broiling), croquette molds and fluted knives for cutting root vegetables into fancy shapes. There are unusual cooking methods, like in an 18th-century recipe for beefsteak panbroiled over a fire made from two newspapers. Without kitchen timers or thermometers, the DB’s cooks were often forced to be ingenious in measuring when a dish was done: ‘‘until the bones are ready to fall out,’’ ‘‘until you can run a straw into the skin,’’ until ‘‘the milk tastes of spice,’’ ‘‘till it be soft and limber.’’ They used their senses more acutely than we do.
