“They staggered from the studio, Missus leaning heavily on Josephine’s shoulder, her feet dragging behind.” (Conklin 188). Josephine lies, possibly to reassure Missus or to avoid the consequences that she as a slave may receive talking back to their masters. Conklin has created an air of frustration and hurt feelings in this scene as Missus confesses that she knows about Josephine’s thoughts of escaping, which seem to push Josephine further and further away from her. “A pure rage gripped Josephine,” and “darkness spilled forth into the room.” (189) With this you can see the author is really putting emphasis on these thoughts Josephine is having. It seems so out of character for Josephine its as if the darkness really has filled her.
The ^ symbol appears in Fun Home as a manifestation of Alison’s obsessive compulsive disorder, representing the phrase “I think.” Alison’s diary appears at numerous points in the novel, acting as a source and showing Bechdel’s thoughts at times in her life. After describing her OCD symptoms and use of ^, Bechdel notes, “my feeble language skills could not bear the weight of such a laden experience” (143). This line can be seen as reasoning for the author to create a graphic novel rather than a work solely with text. The ^ symbol represents Bechdel’s realization that words could not convey the entire meaning of her experiences.

It started by a woman, who shamed another woman by being a descendant of a slave, which inspired Levy to write her book “The Long Song”. The whole idea at first was to write a historical book, but after she learned that, she could not find much of the history of the slaves, she decided that she wanted to write a novel instead, but still based on the same theme. She wanted to give the slave ancestors a voice, and touch a subject not many people have written or talked about. “Writing fiction is a way of putting back the voices that were left out.” (Page 8, line 131-133). She felt that there they were not able to say anything about how unfairly they as slaves have treated, some maybe even against their own will.
Introduction Kate Chopin wrote numerous poems and short stories. In my essay I will primarily deal with her novel The Awakening and the short story At the Cadian Ball.
