Jones! I’m almost finished reading all the books... what are you getting?” Katie finally responded in a proud voice, flashing me the girlish cover of her thin book and puffing her chest up as if she deserved the “Biggest Junie B. Jones Fan” award. “I’m looking for the Harry Potter books, have you seen them?”
Abigail told the girls “I will come to you in the black of some terrible night and I will bring pointy reckoning that will shudder you” (20). She has a forceful personality therefore she makes it clear to the girls that she can harm each and every of them if they told the

Gender in the Yellow Wallpaper By Clinton/Lewinsky 2016 The yellow wallpaper is a compelling book about a woman going crazy and tearing off the yellow wallpaper off the wall. At first glance, this seems like a bad book written by an unstable person who was obsessed with wallpapers. However, this is not the case, and with closer analysis the book is about critiquing gender constructs in society. First of all, gender in that society was based on keeping women down and letting men be superior in modern society. Women weren’t encouraged to be in the workforce and men were generally in positions of power.
Charlotte Perkins Gilman’s “The Yellow Wallpaper” perfectly lends itself to the eye of a feminist critic. Gilman’s narrator is highly unreliable as she recounts the horrifying treatment she received from her controlling husband and his complicit sister to destroy who this woman and completely eliminate her autonomy. This woman’s secretive journaling, though fictional, captures the essence of feminist issues in the Gothic era. In his chapter on Feminism, Robert Dale Parker states that it is a criticism mostly based off of issues with identity.
Fatima is certainly an easy person to hate because she’s so cruel and aggressive. She goes out of her way to pick fights with members of her community. She verbally harasses and physically assaults them, and she feels absolutely no remorse for doing so. Her behavior is immensely contemptable, but I can see how it may have developed. Despite the fact that she had absolutely no control over her physical disability, her parents essentially blamed her for her imperfections.
“The innocence of children is what makes them stand out, as a shining example to the rest of mankind” - Kurt Chambers. Likewise, In the novel To Kill a Mockingbird written by Harper Lee, the narrator Jean Louise Finch, formerly known as “Scout’’ narrates her childhood experiences in an innocent kid's perspective. She begins retelling the story from the age of five and as a result the narrative voice used in the story is very naive. As Scout sees the injustices in her community occur, she uses the limited amount of knowledge she has of the world, her life experiences and her father's teachings/morals to fill in the blanks and try to understand the events that are taking place. It is evident that Scout is at too young of an age to fully comprehend racism and it’s impact on society.
All through out To Kill a Mockingbird Jean-Louise "Scout" Finch’s personality is very evident from the beginning to end. This make her very compelling and interesting character for the start of the story. Also, it seems to get her into trouble a lot more then she should but this adds charisma and life lessons to the story. Some aspect that scout portrays in her personality is courage, intellect,and a very tom boyish character.
One of scout’s most noble trait is that she is fearless and there are many examples to prove so. Firstly Scout stands up to people bigger than her. She stood up to Miss Caroline Fisher to defend Walter Cunningham. Another reason is that she is not afraid of getting in trouble. Without thinking of getting in trouble Scout eats the gum from the knothole.
