Campbell describes the return stage as a “life-giving elixir” and recovering “what has been lost.” The “life-giving elixir” in this case is for the twin sister to meet their half sister and be able to have closure after a long search for their mother. In addition, Chwun Yu and Chwun Hwa are able to learn the true story of their mother’s journey and how she never gave up hope of them being alive. The recovering of “what has been lost” is the experiences they were not able to have due to the circumstances. Upon meeting her sisters for the first time, Jing-mei takes a picture with them using a Polaroid and then the “sisters and [her] watch quietly together, eager to see what develops” (Tan 288). Jing-mei alludes to the future life and memories the sisters and she will form as a result of this overdue family reunion.

In the story, Holden tries to be different from others because it is the way to express identity for him. It causes him to be isolated from the society, and he sometimes feels loneliness in his life. Similarly, the girl in “First Muse” feels sadness and loneliness when she realizes that there is the literary border. She says, "I was stunned ...and fought back tears" (Alvarez, 3-5).

Due to this misunderstanding, the audience lacks interest reading in this type of literary work. Through my journey with poems, I try to see the eye of the author and feel one’s emotions by rereading this type of literature. In this journey, I discover new meanings and different interpretations by just reading one poem that can change one’s perspective multiple times.

She is partnered with a man named Allen, and they eventually grow to like each other. However, Maggie used to be in love with a man named Luke who lives in the town.

There are a lot of worries about their safety because of the chances of being attacked by pirates or dying from dehydration.

The parts in the mother’s point of views are most likely all of Daisy Li’s memories of her life that she had told Amy Tan. The parts in the daughters point of views are more recent memories Amy Tan has of her times as a young adult and lessons learned from her mother.

To be strong and independent you have to be able to take care of not only yourself, but the people you care for.
