But when his family spends their summers in Sag Harbor, where other affluent African American families are, he feels at home and finds his true identity. Benji is in the process of discovering his perception of women and his relationship with the women in his life, which becomes problematic due to the fact that he takes in his perception of women through seeing how his father talks about and treats his mother. He has evolved to believe that men are built to dominate over women based on interactions between his mother and father. This concept that runs throughout the novel prompts me to believe that gender expectations are shaped by our surroundings and the interactions within genders that occur around us. In the Novel Theory Toolbox’s chapter “Subjectivity”, Nealon and Giroux make the point that external factors around us determine our
We witness the lives of people she impacts, what happens to them, and how many times she lies to get her way. Abigail does all this for the man that she loves and had an affair with, John Proctor. If the reader begins to focus on John, his actions and what he stands for, they are easily able to recognize he portrays characteristics of the flawed nature of an individual. It is shown through the fact that he had an affair, isn’t able to forgive himself, and at the end of the book, is unable to give up something dear to him to save himself and others. When analyzing John Proctor, the first thing that stands out is that he had an affair with a 17 year-old Abigail Williams.
Rhetorical Analysis of Shooting Dad The story “Shooting Dad” by Sarah Vowell discusses a story about a teenage girl and her relationship with her father and how they are constantly clashing with each other because they are almost exact opposites. The author develops her story by creating images in the reader 's mind to describe events that happened in her life, the use hyperbole for comedic relief, and irony for emotional effect. The use of these emotional strategies is effective because Vowell is able to use these strategies to help the readers understand the relationship between her and her father. Overall by the use of strategies like imagery, hyperbole, and irony the author creates a piece of writing that shows the relationship between the main character and her father. The use of imagery is important to the story because the author is able to form images in the reader 's mind about the way that certain events unraveled in the story and to describe the appearance of certain objects and places in the story.

For whatever reason the father-in-law may have the speaker of the poem acknowledges that he may be responsible for his wife’s passing. When sharing this poem, I can only imagine that Terrence Hayes wanted to stress the importance of family. The dead space between the speaker and the father-in-law resonates a feeling of sorrow with the reader and enforces the idea that you should remain united with the people you love. The comparison of a barber cutting his clients hair in relation to his relationship with an immediate family member is a sad way to see your family. In human civilizations and in just about all cultures, the importance of family is in some way stressed as being a top priority.
In Fahrenheit 451 there are a couple of important scenes where the author strongly suggest knowledge loses it’s value if not shared. In one scene Guy Montag tries to share the poetry he has read, with his wife’s house guests because he wants them to experience and understand that there is a deeper and more meaningful way of thinking
The end also makes the moral and themes of the story high interpretative for the readers. It leaves the reader to ponder the "right" ways for an adult to respond to a partner's infidelity, the impact of one’s permission of the will, the role of women in a successful marriage, the obligations of a husband, and test of human nature under the stress of isolation. Ross mentions, “On the palm, white even against its frozen whiteness, was a little smear of paint” (12). This makes the reader ponder about John’s actions and motivations before death, and the connections between the painted door and the married couple. The presence of a shocking and ironic end makes the story highly impactful.

Her troubled feelings are related to the tides, the strong emotions and the anxiety. As I pointed out, there is a clear comparison between the speaker´s father and her husband. Her father was a salesman, a talker, a person in love with maps and she wants in her life someone similar. The “new loves” in the poem are related to the infidelity. In the poem Daddy by Sylvia Plath, it appears different metaphors related to the speaker´s father which describe her ambiguous relationship.
The therapist should point out to Yelena that she had a responsibility of telling her husband about her sexual disappointment.

The general attention shift when the author now introduces “I” because this, again, brings the reader closer to the incident; by doing this, the reader is not only reading about it, but he is reading a personal account of it. She writes that she, “couldn’t bear to look at the woman,” after the husband cruelly said something to his wife because she accidentally embarrassed him, and this puts the reader in the author’s shoes of encountering a relationship that

In this case, the poem in the back of the woman in this magazine cover, was written by the founder of the Battling Bare campaign, wanting to share her emotions towards her PTSD husband and make a statement to the world how she’s the one helping him.
