Cynthia pretends that she doesn’t have to practice things to get good at them, but in reality, she has to practice a lot to get good at something. She tries to make everyone think that things just come naturally to her and she is just good at things. Squeaky likes people who don’t pretend or put on a mask, but instead people who are themselves and don’t put on a mask. Cynthia likes to pretend and put on a mask, but Squeaky on the other hand, likes to be herself and doesn’t like to pretend to be something she’s not. Another quote that supports the author’s message is, “The biggest thing on the program is the May Pole dancing, which I can do without, thank you, even if my mother thinks it’s a shame I don’t take part and act like a girl for a change….
This novel is one that hits you right in the heart almost instantly, with you learning that Eliot and Fiona have no mother, or father, so they must live with their super-strict grandmother and kind, but overbearing, great-grandmother. The twins have an average sibling relationship, which means that they fight quite often, but not physically. They fight using words and logic, since that is all they 've ever known. However, for as much as they do play these games of logic, they do show compassion for one another, and their great-grandmother Cee even tells them to "Be brave," and "Do not let them separate you. You are stronger together."
At the beginning of the short story “The Rocking Horse Winner” D.H. Lawrence writes that the mother has a terrible secret that she carries with her. She is not to love her children or feel love for anyone else, either. Only the children in this short story seem to understand this concept. She is the only one that knew that in the of her heart was a hard place that could not feel love for anybody, including her own children. Everybody said good things of her: "She is such a good mother.
Anne did not like all of the people she stayed with, like Mr. Dussel, but she did not discriminate. That could explain why she said that she believes people kindhearted deep down. Anne could have decided to hate Dussel and skip his Hanukkah gift, but she did anyway and that contributes to the quotes later said about others. Anne was optimistic and looked on the bright side of everything. She said in the play ‟Don’t say that, it’s so wonderful to see them!
“Curley’s wife stands as a glaringly bitter and ironic illus-tration of the immorality of narrow minds and the social conditions that produce them” (Hart 39). No one on the ranch gives Curley’s wife the respect that a young, beautiful woman deserves, but she also has been treated so low her whole life that she does not demand respect. For exam-ple, “Curley’s wife is not given a proper name. Apparently she does not merit it;” Curley’s wife never takes notice to her name never being used, which is
She knew she was still at a very young age to understand all the commotion on wealthy vs. poor, or the difference in people’s skin tone, or even on why people couldn’t be accepted as their own person, not just on what their parents do. She forgiving of her friends teasing, her mothers and aunt remark on them just let it slide. She forgave the townspeople saying cruel things like “the school the Brunell children went to was not at all the kind of place their parents would have chosen if there had been any choice. But there was none. It was the only school for miles.” Letting all the students and staff know it was not reach able to separate the kids.
HOW DOES SHE PREPARED TO THAT? Rigoberta Menchu never went to school in her childhood because the economic resources did not give her the chance to have that kind of education, so she had an autodidact training performed by her parents, but she had a lot of opportunities to grow. RIGOBERTA’S LEADERSHIP While I was investigating who really is Rigoberta Menchu, I have realized that she is a very brave woman and worth admiring, because she simply did not remain silent before all the violence that she and her family suffered, if it had been someone else, surely, someone else would have wept for the events and they would not had done anything, I think that kind of people, like Rigoberta, is very successful in life, those who do not fear rejection
The short story doesn’t give us much background on the characters; so their names tell the rest of their story. First off, Connie, the main character, has a very subtle, and somewhat controversial, hidden meaning. From my perspective, Oates named her Connie due to the fact that she always conjures up something. When she’s at home, she often conjures up conflict concerning her mom and sister. She does not do her chores, unlike her perfect sister, who always does her’s; she gawks at herself in the mirror, much to her mother’s disapproval; and she is filled with “trashy daydreams” that have done wonders to corrupt her mind.
