This relates to my story because Ashes’ dad is manipulative, deceptive, and selfish. One of the main personality traits showing in Ashes’ dad in the story is manipulation. On multiple occasions, he tries to butter Ashes up to get her to do what he wants. “‘You look radiant,’ he said. ‘You get more and more beautiful.’ I was wearing jeans and a bulky brown sweater that Mom had given me for Christmas.” This quote shows that even though Ashes is obviously not “radiant” at the moment but her dad tells Ashes how amazing she looks just to make up for the fact that he is asking Ashes to steal from her mother.
Although Peter writes very harsh things it is only to allow Heloise to move on. He does love her now and knows that they can never be together so he must drive her away. In the Third Letter from Abelard to Heloise he states, “...he joined us together i the bond of holy matrimony when I wanted to keep you forever for myself, beloved beyond measure”(97).

Such as it informs people about forbidden love, the crazy things love makes one do, and how suicide affects loved ones. One way Romeo and Juliet is a relevant work of art is it teaches people about forbidden love.
We can identify a characteristic of gender roles through the eyes of the persona. The nurturing nature of the mother can be seen when she ‘dried [the child’s] tearful face’. Contrasting to the father who ‘whistling, [comes] home from work’, through the alliteration portrayed through the father as the bread winner of the family and thereby the guardian of the household. By drawing attention to these gender roles in the context of childhood memory, the persona is subliminally implying the permanent repeated display of gender roles throughout generations and how it has not changed. However, this observation is downplayed by refocusing on the childhood memories as the combinations of events ‘milk and story-books / the gathered flowers / my mother’s golden brown hair’, psychoanalytically reveals the significance of childhood memories in their ability to evoke nostalgic and pleasing emotions to distract the audiences thoughts on gender roles.
