Louise is hopeful, positive, and an individual whom had to leave home. Throughout the story and letters, Louise was hopeful. In Dear Miss Breed, in page 3, line 9 it says, “It was too terrible to witness the pain in people’s faces, too shameful for them to be seen in this degrading situation.” It shows how Louise can’t stand the gloomy setting and she tries to be happy, positive, and hopeful. Throughout the story, page 4, line 28, she writes, “You never realize how valuable a thing is until you experience it.”
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
This quote suggests that the Wife of Bath believes all women are incapable of keeping a secret, which is an untrue and harmful stereotype. Her main opinion on women seems to be that while they wish to appear wise, pure, and good on the outside, it does not mean they are perfect internally and many
Anne was a terrific writer, her story was told with so much detail that you felt like you were in the “Secret Annex” with her. She included important things such as her emotions, as well as the emotions of those around her. Anne’s story was told best by her and no one else because she was, in fact, a young girl hiding from Hitler’s army. Not many people can say they did this in their lifetime. Anne was so full of hope, and her hope is what I believe kept her alive for the two years in hiding, up until her family was captured.
This role of her being an antagonistic protagonist creates a paradox within the already complex and unusual child. The symbol of Pearl plays an important part in the novel The Scarlet Letter. She is a reminder of her mother 's sin and antagonist toward Hester, as well. She is the root of many other symbols in the book.
Anne Frank A Light in the Dark Anne Frank once said, “I keep my ideals, because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart.” Many people know that Anne Frank was an extraordinary diarist, truly an optimist, and a spunky, energetic girl, but did they know that she was wise beyond her years? She changed the world by blessing humanity with her extraordinary literature skills and imagination. She showed that even in horrible times, people could make the most out of it, and not wallow in their misery.
The diary becomes Anne 's record of growing up as well as her record of her understanding of the war. The diary itself continues to be one of the most widely known books in the world, fulfilling Anne 's desire to become a writer and having her word live on after her death. The selected symbols each tell a complex story of the humane struggles we all face in adolescence. The play The Diary of Anne Frank depicts a recognizable, benevolent scene of family and youth; we can observe these meaningful parts of life through the eyes of a young girl in the time of war.
She had to stay optimistic during the Holocaust, a time when her life was in danger and she was oppressed by the Nazis and most of Germany. During hiding and up until her death in a concentration camp in 1944, she managed to stay optimistic and keep a positive attitude. She wrote in her diary, “In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death.” This shows that even after all she has been through, she still manages to stay positive and optimistic.
Thy blemishes amend” (ll. 11-12). This poem, nevertheless, does not play on women’s inferiority as “The Prologue” does, instead, it: “conveys the anxiety of Puritan women who feared (not only an abnormal childbirth, but also) the public castigation of her motivation and influences” (Day-Lindsey, 68). Choosing no culprit to lay blame on for the flaws in her poetry, instead, Day-Lindsey claims “The Author to Her Book”: “is filled with a degree of shame, guilt, and fear of repercussions” (68). There is a real dissimilarity in tone from “The Prologue”, in this instance; Bradstreet does not turn to sarcasm, irony or defiance. Instead, she remains apologetic for the flaws of her poetry, in tone as well as language.
The fact that she can walk away from all those terrible experiences with love for her parents is incredible. Another thing I loved about this book is how it represents her parents, with all their faults, and their poor mentality, at its worst, without anger, or really any judgment, just with the love. If she had been bitter in her description it would not have been as amazing. This memoir was written with forgiveness making me respect her for not only surviving such a strange childhood to become a successful, but for being able to view her past with
Valerie must face complications with her family, old friends, and the girl whose life she saved. Can Valerie survive her senior year of High School and let go of the past? I think that the “Hate List” was an outstanding book. I thought the book had a fantastic plot which made the book have many great themes to learn from and also caused the book to get very intense at some moments.
However, Pelzer was not the only person among these books who clutched to hope. Anne Frank, like Pelzer, was quick to grab it, and she expressed her hopeful ideals and dreams all throughout her diary. “I keep them [her hopes], because in spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart” (Müller, 242). Anne wished that something would change for the better, which leads into another difference between Anne and Pelzer: while Pelzer was eventually rescued, Anne was not. On another note, Anne, and all Jews located around and throughout Germany, all faced a different kind of oppression than Pelzer had.
The entry shows Anne maturing by Anne seeing what she has wrote and realizing how petty she is being. Anne starts having a better relationship with her mom, after she reads the bad things she wrote and the bad things she said about her mom. There are three reasons I know this. First Anne says “...moods which kept my head under water (so to speak)” and she not looked at things from her mom’s point of view. Anne has let her temper get the best of her and she is starting to notice and feel bad about all the things she has done.
