Also, the author was most likely trying to convey the idea that everyone has a separate dream of what they want to be when they are an adult. A parent cannot force their child to pursue a career that they do not want to be in because excessively forcing a child to follow a certain life will only make them not enjoy their future; in addition, it could also lead to them caring less about their career, eventually possibly costing them their job. To conclude, I liked the writing style of this short story because while it was depressing at times, it was never fully boring and it had a certain theme of the relationships within families that gave the
Love is when one loves someone so much they will do almost anything for the person they love. The feeling that one is loved is a substance that no one can take away and love is an existence that can make one feel special. Maria feels she is too old to be going on family vacations and is sick of them, will she go with them on the trip and spend time with her family? Or will she tell her family, she sick of going and stay home while her family has a lot of fun? This is all from “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto.
She shall dwell in the house they have built together, and he shall maintain her as long as she lives.” This is unjust because you should not leave your sick wife alone and marry another woman. Many people think king Hammurabi’s laws were just, but they were not just because of that evidence. Justice is not absolute in this because people worked hard to make a marriage,
“Me and Ruth done made some sacrifices for you – why can’t you do something for the family?” (Hansberry 1.1.118). The Younger family has grown up without much and when the father dies, he leaves an inheritance that can get the family into a comfortable living position. The only problem is that they all want to use the money for different reasons. Each character wants to make their own dreams come true.
In The Pigman (2005) by Paul Zindel, two teenagers, John and Lorraine, form an unusual friendship with an old man, Mr. Pignati. Over the past few years, this book has become one of many illicit books in schools because people believe that it is inappropriate. However, The Pigman should be taught in schools because it contains characters that many readers can relate to and teaches valuable lessons. Many students who read this book can relate to what the two main characters deal with at home. Mrs. Jensen, Lorraine 's mother, is very overprotective and is constantly reminding Lorraine to stay away from boys.
The two stories’ I picked to compare are “Soldier’s home” and “Rappaccini’s Daughter” I chose to compare them on theme, symbolism, and characters. The two stories have a lot in common even though they are written in different times. The theme that they both share is freedom due to the parents of both of the stories are really demanding the main characters due to the fact they are the first born of each family. In Soldier’s home Krebs wants to live without consequences and just live his life how he wants to do it if that means not going to work and chasing woman then he will do that.

Lena was distressed and upset that she would marry this bully, so she began to eat less and less of the meals Ying-Ying served her. She wanted to cause Arnold pain, or rid him from her life. At this point, Lena was anorexic solely because her mom wanted her to finish her rice. This is very powerful, because later in life,
The latter quote is clear evidence that people should not leave it to others to inform them of how certain concepts in life work. Janie listened to her grandmother’s ideas about love and went into her first marriage enormously unguided. In the end she felt very disappointed with her marriage to Logan, but nonetheless, she was able to learn that marriage and love were not always synonymous. If Janie would have never experienced marriage herself, it is very possible that she would have remained ignorant to the fact that a marriage between two individuals does not result in love every time. People should learn from Janie’s experience about witnessing and living things for themselves instead of just trusting the opinions and beliefs of

Causality, Cause and Effect Lately, I’ve realized that I am so afraid of failure that I don’t try, or quit, if I feel that I won’t reach my own expectations. This hit home last Friday when I made a B on my physiology exam; I came home crying and wanting to quit the class. My husband kept staring at me like I was crazy and my son responded with “Good thing you don’t have my grades; we would have to hide the gun.”. I wanted to quit over a B, I might have overacted just a little. So, I mapped out all the possible causes to find out why I am so afraid to fail.
War Changes Molarity Tim O’Brien is both the author of the novel The things they carried, and one of the most important characters. Tim O’Brien narrator and some might say the protagonist. O’Brien seems to be really confused throughout the novel. He has some guilt that he tries to deal with over and over again throughout the novel, but when the war is over he uses his ability to tell stories to help him deal with his guilt and confusion. O’Brien might have been a character that abides the moral code but after entering the Vietnam war, morality never seemed to exist.
In the Freedom Writers Diary, the authors focus on the topic of the reality of what they have to deal with in their everyday world. Their teacher Mrs. Gruwell inspired them throughout their high school years by teaching them that it is possible for each and every one of them to change. They write with an uplifting and hopeful outlook on the world even if it not realistic in their present circumstances. In their writing, they establish an effective use of pathos by writing about their own lives and how they connect to others and us by using the selection of detail, metaphors, and allusions. Through these devices, we come to the idea that even though teenager’s in today’s world are faced with many hardships, they do not have to succumb to them.
