The poem “Womanskin” by Maxine Tynes has a subtle yet profound meaning. It offers an immediate stance when it begins simply by the word “women” (line 1). It continues on in a specific rhythm of sentences with 3 or more syllables followed by “of loving” between the lines 2-11. Women are being described as warm-hearted people and as “making life”(line 8) and “making our men whole” (line 10). The author then elaborates on where these specific women originate from, “distant daughters of/ the Nile, the Sahara, Kenya, Zaire, Sudan / the Serengeti” (line 15-17).

Many critics agree on one fact about Canadian author Alice Munro: one of her most notable qualities in regards to her work is the distinct use of realism in her writing. Her writing provides a strong sense of familiarity to the reader, while also containing stronger metaphorical meanings that one can note when they begin to closely look at her work. Her short story “Boys and Girls” portrays the socialization of a young girl, once very close to her father and unaware of any sort of gender bias within her society, into a young woman with a pessimistic view of femininity and her expected position in society. This story shows the socialization process in a way that makes it easy to recognize, illustrating circumstances that the reader can notice the blatant sexism and misogyny; however, its portrayal is extremely realistic, allowing the reader to recall how oblivious they may have been in the past during times that they have been impacted by social biases in our world. Critics of Munro typically agree on her overall theme of femininity and coming of age in her writings; “Boys and Girls” emphasizes the ways in which young girls are socialized into a seemingly natural understanding of the sexist expectations and gender roles.

By trusting himself, Equality-72521 found his inner strengths in being the adventurous person he is. Although he addresses his skill as a curse, he justifies that self-reliance is what makes him unique by saying that it has inspired him to have his own thoughts and wishes that other people do not have. By things independently, people find their own strengths, weaknesses, and capabilities rather than focusing on how they are like others. Equality-72521 lives in an unsupportive society, and he proves that stepping out of his comfort zone is what made shaped him into the person he is today.
Some of them can seem harsh and a little bit unnecessary. For example, there is one rule that prohibits citizens from choosing their own occupations.

Usually the women are subservient and submissive to the men in their lives, but Beatrice challenges that role. She spoke whatever she thought and did not hold back; her informality was aided by the use of prose. Prose is ordinary speech. It has no regulated rhyme or patterns os stress, and it usually is used with wordplay or jokes. Verse, on the other hand, is much more formal and is used to convey more complex emotions.
Kay is the speaker of, “The Type” and throughout the poem, she is taking to individuals who identify themselves to be a woman. This is shown in the opening line when she says, “If you grow up the type of women...” Throughout this poem, Kay explores the themes of empowerment and identity, through the use of repetition and connotation. Through the frequent use of repetition, Kay puts emphasis on how women are defined in relation to males. Additionally, she also uses connotation to remind women they are more than what they are perceived to be in relation to others and they have the power to define themselves. Therefore the main idea of the poem is to perhaps remind women of their worth and inspire them to define themselves on their own terms, and not through the eyes of men or in comparison/relation to their relationship with others.
