This story connects to modern day issues because some women are actually being oppressed by their husband or significant other and feel a strong sense of freedom when they pass away. In this analysis there are four main literary devices that are used to illustrate the theme which are metaphors, irony, foreshadows, and similes. The theme that kate chopin used to idntfy the story line is a womens freedom. In this quote, “’Body and soul free!’”, Mrs. Mallard verbally recognizes her freedom now that her husband has died, and it is important to the story because it highlights her true feelings about her husband. Mrs. Mallard felt oppressed physically and spiritually by her husband to the point that his death has resulted in her freedom and happiness.
You can obviously tell from the opening of this poem that the speaker is talking about his daughter and certain that his daughter is basically destined to have a forbidding life with no future. However, in the very last line of the poem he acknowledges that he has no daughter and his desire none and that puts a whole new twist on the poem. The first three lines the speaker introduce and describes his daughter. “Looking into my daughters eyes I read” “Beneath the innocence of morning flesh” “Concealed, hinting’s of death she does not heed.”
Walk Two Moons takes its time to show you that Sal's mother died whereas the poem “Missing Mama” is right to the point. One of the feelings that they both go through is not being able to go with their mothers and be with them forever.

Genogram and Ecomap Reflection Paper The story of my family laid out on paper with either scribbly lines or straight lines, symbols that represent death or sickness is beautiful and sad at the same time.

While “For My Daughter”, a poem written by Weldon Kees during the 1940s, resonates the bitterness of a mother’s feeling toward her daughter’s illness, it also shows her hopelessness and pain as a mother. What I find interesting about this poem is the strong statement in the last line “I have no daughter” for “I have none”.
