As you can see, that the author, Dwight Holden Okita reflects on what his personal matters are to show in his work and as for himself to address that he is also Japanese-American can prove so as a pattern in most of poems. According to a post and website called, Positivelydifferent, it has been mentioned that the 14-year old girl’s best friend, Denise, who is in fact white has said a specific statement that was towards the 14-year old girl and Japanese which was, “You're trying to start a war, giving secrets away to the Enemy. Why can't you keep your big mouth shut?" Therefore, this quote that Denise said from the poem clearly displays the discrimination towards the child and the Japanese itself. Clearly saying that the Japanese was the cause of the war and the absurdity of the quote itself that Denise mentions, made a few statements regarding of the Japanese that might have been handing secrets that could possibly be starting a war.

The steadily surging popularity of these magic realist works amongst Japanese individuals can be attributed to a number of factors: first, these texts commonly discuss the issues of urban existentialism, isolation, identity (or the lack thereof), cultural disorientation and social non-conformism, problems faced by a large majority of Japan's population and hence relatable to; second, apart from raising such issues, these magic realist novels also provide an alternate reality within reality, which offers some semblance of salvation for troubled readers. I would thirdly venture to assert that Japan furthermore possesses a rich history of magical elements in its culture – take for example the spiritual superstitions in Shinto mythology – thus making magic realism an even more relatable, distinctive and highly apt means of expression for the Japanese
Since postfeminism goes back on many aspects of feminism, the same happens in post feminists film where in the end the heroine either ends up with a man or finds happiness with a man. This is indeed the ending for the film that is going to be examined in this paper. The reasoning why this is the ending in so many postfeminism films is because it is the first time since feminism that it is okay to end up with a man. Most feminist rhetoric was, and is, about how women do not need men to survive. While that was showcased in the beginning of the film from Bridget’s character and lifestyle, it later shifts to where she wants to find the right man.

The Hidden Hills In the past century, women have started to stand up for themselves and do what they want regarding their body. Men previously have made all the important decisions, controlled women, and really only saw them as objects or entertainment. Slowly but surely, however, women gained their power and voiced their opinions for what they wanted. This can be seen in Jig’s character in Ernest Hemingway’s “Hills Like White Elephants.” Even though it is not said directly, it is still easy for the audience to understand that what Jig and her boyfriend are talking about is a woman’s matter. In “Hills Like White Elephants,” Hemingway does not reveal the underlying meaning, but rather uses symbolism in his story through Jig’s attitude towards her boyfriend, the station in which the couple is at, and the absinthe drink she tries.
It is common knowledge that first impressions often last even after an individual has been acquainted with said person for a long period of time (Austin 2015). Jane Austen’s novel, Pride and Prejudice, portrays a reoccurring sense of preconceived perceptions of various characters throughout the story, resulting in many misunderstandings among relationships between them. The main character, Elizabeth Bennet, mistakenly judges Fitzwilliam Darcy and George Wickham based on her prejudice and inaccurate conceptions. Darcy also misjudges and wrongly perceives one of the key characters, Elizabeth as an inferior rather than an equal, due to his arrogance and vanity. Hence, the fixed notions depicted in the beginning of the novel, mainly by Elizabeth and Darcy, influence the various relationships between characters prompting the progression of the storyline.
