“Fefu and her friends” is a strange yet an encompassing playwright written by Maria Irenes Fornes who sets this play during spring 1935 in New England when feminism wasn’t coming into existence and the lives of women were much more restricted in comparison to our modern day world. The audience observes the lives of eight different women who engage with each other in one environment to rehearse for a theatre education project for charity. Fornes purposely sets the setting of the play at Fefu’s house in order to stress upon the point she wanted to make; women can get along under one roof even if they are restricted to the inside world. She also does this in order to highlight the character and personality of Fefu; her manly approach to the world around her. Many readers conclude that this play is written to highlight the eight distinct personalities and characters Fornes establishes, however, it is not about that.

The poem Dusting by Julia Alverez relays several ideas to the reader. It begins by describing a young child going about a house and writing their name on the furniture. The child 's mother follows behind her and, in the process of dusting, incidentally erases the writing. While this poem may seem superficial from a quick reading, it not only reflects some aspects of Alverez’s childhood, but it also reveals some thought provoking questions. In Dusting, through making an analogy to a relationship between a mother and her child, Julia Alvarez demonstrates her desire to break away from traditional or cultural expectations, express her individuality, be well-known, and, ultimately, she makes an important point about life.
Circumstances can make or break you, yet Markus Zusak uses Liesel to show it can make you into the person you can be. Like for example, when one gets tossed with people she has no idea she can turn into the person one is truly made up of or she can let her break her to make her complain and not take the advantages she is given. In The Book Thief, Markus uses Liesel to illustrate how tough circumstances can build you. For Liesel, defining tough circumstances were when she had to live with foster parents, when she had to learn to read, when she had to read in front of her class and be made fun of, and the dealing with her mother and brother dying. These are a few of the many tough situations that built her throughout The Book Thief.
Still others grew up with just knowing one parent and not ever questioning where their other parent was. On the other hand, some might even view “family” as the friends they surround themselves with. However, when it comes to family culture, that holds more of a broader definition due to the range in family dynamics. Family culture is defined as, “attitudes, ideas and ideals, which a person inherits from his or her parents and ancestors.” For example, author and writer Hannah Brencher stated in her book If You Find This Letter that growing up her mom would leave letters for her to find at home. When Hannah found herself riding the subway to New York one day, she decided to leave letters to strangers for them to find.
