For example, Premila in “By Any Other Name” has shown that she had changed her point of view on British culture when a momentous conflict between her and her teacher occurred in school. Premila’s trial to surmount her conflict can further be seen in the climax of the story, where Premila decided to leave her school and take Santha home with her (Santha 38-39). Premila was upset that her teacher made her and her Indian peers sit at the back of the room, isolated by everyone else, and stated that it was because Indians cheat. (Santha 39). Following Premila throughout the story, one can also see that she had changed her perspective on British culture from positive to negative when her teacher was putting a derogatory cultural stereotype on her.
Name of Main Character: Franny Chapman Quote #1: “I can tell my whole life story through Jo Ellen’s records. These people understand me” (Wiles 271). This dialogue from the main character moves the plot because: The reader can see how alone Franny feels. She believes her family and friends lack empathy and takes comfort in the music she listens to, as it shares her feelings. The plot moves forward with Franny’s desire to be understood.
As a result of her affair, she becomes pregnant and has a beautiful daughter named Pearl. For her punishment, she must stand on the scaffold in front of lots of people holding her child. She is forced to wear a red “A” on her chest as a reminder to the community and herself of her adultery. In comparison to the other cases during the sixteenth and seventeenth century, Hawthorne describes her treatment and punishment as slightly less severe. Although Hester’s punishment is embarrassing and terrible, people who committed adultery were given harsher punishments typically.
Tan expresses the changing connection between the main characters’ mother-daughter relationship through the use of metaphors. This is shown when Rose Hsu Jordan talks to her mother about her recent divorce with her husband, Ted. Tan illustrates this with the quote, “And below the heimongmong, all along the ground, were weeds spilling over the edges…” (Tan 220). The weeds spilling over the sides were killing the heimongmong plants, which was a metaphor for Rose’s confusion. This was representative of how her mother helped Rose to be more assertive about her divorce, and to finally realize what she wanted
One night, she heard her parents arguing and struggling in terrible wrath to each other and saw that they are struggling for the knife where her father had ordered her to take the knife away from her mother’s hand and so she followed and tossed it out the window. Engracia continuously spat and slapped Pio as soon as she was released from his grasp then clutched Martha and told her words that were foreign and strange, words that were only half-understood but Martha was crying. When Martha was eighteen, she fully understood the night that had been a blur to her when she was still twelve. She fell in love with a guy not older than herself, and her seriousness and innocence with love hindered things such as fun or flings and she asked him about their marriage and he just laughed at her. After her heartbreak, Martha had inflamed the hatred she kept against her father for
So, this is the teachers’ duties to make the students pay attention to the lesson when the students feel so bored and lost their concentration during the lesson. Based on my observation, there are some ways to make the students pay attention to the lesson, they are: • The teacher would review the last material, and then she asked the students to memorize the last material about the name of the day and the month. • She said “please focus”
Ashford, who taught Vivian of Donne several years earlier. Although Vivian has also studied Donne for numerous years herself, she cries in pain when Ashford asks her if she would like Donne recited to her (Edson 79). To me, it appears that Vivian has abandoned Donne’s word of life and death and wants to have a simple reason why she should leave this world. Although this is only conveyed in a painful moan to which Ashford reads Vivian a children’s book called The Runaway Bunny. The story went as Ashford recites, “Once there was a little bunny who wanted to run away.
In fact, Gilman used her own experiences with Nervous Prostration as an influence in writing this story. The article titled A Feminist Reading of Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” states, “When “The Yellow Wallpaper” was published [Gilman] sent it to Weir Mitchell whose strictures had kept her from attempting the pen during her own breakdown, thereby aggravating her illness, and she was delighted to learn, years later, that “he had changed his treatment of nervous prostration since reading” her story. “If that is a fact,” she declared, “I have not lived in vain” (906). This shows one example of her experiences that Gilman included in The Yellow Wallpaper. The narrator even states “So I take phosphates or phosphites - whichever it is, and tonics, and journeys, and air, and exercise, and am absolutely forbidden to “work” until I am well again.
Nathaniel Hawthorne’s The Scarlet Letter is a story of how Hester Prynne committed a sin and is punished but learns to live with herself with her daughter. According to Benjamin Kilbourne, in his article “Shame Conflicts and Tragedy in The Scarlet Letter,” the” ‘A’ of Hester Prynne, shed light on what makes shame unbearable, and on what makes shame conflicts tragic” (465). Dimmesdale, Hester lover that is a preacher, and Chillingworth, Hester husband also had much shame throughout the book, the two-character showed different types of shame, but they both felt similar. Another thought from Kilbourne has he thought The Scarlet Letter was a very well-written novel with different disputes and how the people showed shame in different ways (465). The essay is about the minor shame of Hester and major shame of Dimmesdale and the tragedy in the novel.
I recall very clearly the time this course really touched me it was my second redo and initially I remember it was a noticeable change inside of me. I initially didn’t know what to do with all that trapped anger. That moment has helped me deal with my emotions that realization when I reread my essay with my tutor I was angry and was in denial at that moment I was distorting my ideas about my mother . The trapped feelings which she had made me conceal as I grew up….stayed with me. How could I say it was her fault?
