Life is a journey. It has its ups and downs, but anyone can survive the challenges if he or she just believes. Many people can relate to life, but some people do not see it as Linda Pastan does as she shows it through her poems “Marks” and Baseball.” These poems were written in two totally different time periods of her life. Pastan portrays the use of extended metaphors in each poem, which creates a sense of………. Linda Pastan was a great poet while also a wife and mother.
Also from Nora Sandigos point of view since she 's the only person who expresses her feeling and speaks throughout the text like “Dios Mio,” she says, my God, because these are not just things she hopes to get done but things she needs to get done — things she is in fact legally responsible for doing”. How this shows sacrifice is Lucy accepts her fate to leave her family for the better even if she really doesn’t and Nora Sandigo shows sacrifice from being forced to do all that work and wasting her life. The second similarity is the dialogue shown in the two texts through papa saying “Your mother and I have decided …” Papá walked over and put his arm on Mamá’s shoulder. She sat frozen in place. “We’ve made plans for you to leave Cuba … tomorrow”.
However, many times justice is not sought and not given to those who need it most. In the play Antigone by Sophocles, he demonstrates the many ways an unjust leader can overpower those who fight for what is right (Adams, 1). In Antigone’s case, she fought for the just treatment of her brother in his afterlife and bringing him a proper burial. In her fight for justice, Antigone exhibits strong beliefs of fairness for her community regarding family, rights and morality. In Sophocles’ play, Antigone, he displays a variety of different types of justice.
So the reason is she is important in history is because she helped others in need and Anne’s diary which showed people tolerance and would have never existed and their story would have never been told but it was all thanks to Hermine Santrouschitz or Miep Gies .

Mama sees that is a part of her heritage as well and wants the quilt to belong to her daughters, that she loves so much. But she would want the quilt to belong to one person that would treasure the quilt as much as she did and the rest of her descendants did. Alice Walker illustrates the differing views and wants the audience to see how much the quilt means and how much heritage and family should mean an individual whether they have "left the nest" or not. Alice Walker wants the audience to side with Maggie and Mama as the two of them value their family and the family valuable that Dee only sees as a trend statement or a new trend in her generation. The title, "Everyday Use", is important to the story as to how the quilt is seen for the characters and how the writer wants the reader to see it as well.
A lady in the years O 'Connor wrote this story meant to have morals, to be respectful, and to be modest. The grandmother wanted nothing less than to have and look the best at all times. However, the situation changes when the grandmother and her family get into the wreck and her “navy blue straw sailor hat” (O’Conner 297) falls off. As they all are recovering from the wreck, three men arrive on the scene offering their help. Suddenly, the grandmother recognizes one of the men as the Misfit.
Codi immediately distanced herself from the achievements of Hallie: “I am the sister who didn’t go to war” (Kingsolver 1). Stevenson remarks: “In her first three sentences, Codi defines herself by negation and implies that the real story is happening elsewhere, with Hallie as hero” (185). From the outset, Codi has already described herself as what she is not, in terms of her sister; she has effectively put Hallie on a pedestal. “In contrast to Codi, Hallie is confident, optimistic, and idealistic… Codi admires Hallie and contrasts herself unfavorably with her younger sister” (Mazzeno). Codi is often comparing her own achievements to Hallie’s, in a negative context; she seems to be unable to peel away the influence of her sister that is present in her everyday life.
In conclusion, “Paul’s Case” is a short story that a person needs to take time to read in order to understand it. Willa Cather first had readers view Paul as an unsympathetic character, but towards the end of it, she used narration, dialogue, and description so the readers would view him in a sympathetic way. I personally did view Paul as a weird character because he seemed to have a weird smile on his face that the author emphasized on in the beginning, and was said to be a lair. But, as I continued to read, I got to see who Paul really was, and the struggles he was going through. I compared this story to “Sonny’s Blues” by how Sonny wanted to be a musician, but his brother did not see anything good to come out of that, but Sonny wanted to follow what he loved.
Throughout the story, the Grandmother never truly changed, only her ostensible actions did. Her final act towards the Misfit was not out of charity, but in attempt to save herself. Set in the South in the 1950s, the grandmother dutily satisfied the stereotypes that blossomed within her generation. She speaks of the older days, when children were more respectful, and good men were easier to find. However, she never expresses what defines a good man, which suggests her unsteady moral foundation.
Okeke attempts to persuade Veronica to leave the village and her family, who he says have never done anything for her, but her chaste reply of: “they are my family, that is enough” shows the clear contrast between Okeke and his ambition and Veronica who is driven by traditional values and has no other experiences to change this. Okeke still tries to persuade Veronica to go but being a child of extreme poverty has affected her future. She now has no qualifications or any other views on life that differs to the one that she is used to in the village. Even Okeke, as a narrator, “knew there was a lot of truth in what she said” but was “appalled” by her lack of ambition. This is a major
