When a teenager has an identity crush the parents should try to understand where the teenager is coming from looking up to their identity crushes and always try to be understanding and supportive towards their children’s identity crushes. In Romeo and Juliet Shakespeare uses Romeo and Friar Laurence’s relationship as an identity crush. Because whenever Romeo is stuck in a situation where he needs some help in making the right choices he always goes to Friar Laurence and ask him what to do. Romeo looks up to Friar Laurence as a mentor: “Holy Saint Francis! What a change is here!
In the poem, Orange, by Gary Soto has put great effect to the poem by adding happiness and pride the write experiences. This poem is all about love and that warm gooey feeling that you have for someone when the relationship is just starting to floum. Throughout the poem he uses descriptive words in order to point out the world around him and his emotions towards it.Soto gets there by contrasting. We know this by contrasting the end of the poem when he feels like he made a fire on his first day even though that day, the climate was very dark and yucky. Soto has achieved great effects to the scene where he describes himself peeling an orange but feels like he was making a fire because the color of the fruit was so bright.
It shows that he is not a enslaved monkey in a science lab, but the arrogant monkey who refuses to do the tests. He shows the people around him what it feels like to be independent, and the feeling of color. Here is a quote to represent the curiosity about him, “What -- even if we have to burn for it like the Saint of the pyre -- what is the Unspeakable Word?” (Rand 57) “For this wire is a part of our body, as a vein torn from us, glowing with our blood. Are we proud of this thread of metal, or of our hands which made it, or is there a line to divide these two?” (Rand 5.10) This quote above shows that he will do anything for his invention, electricity. He will go as far as almost die with it.
Through these actions, he ignores the notion of feeling like a thug while also lessening the aspect of terror felt by nearby people. The whistling allows others to see the accurate representation of Staples. He dresses different, makes himself smaller, less threatening. He 's cautious of the time of day he goes outside and what he wears. “As a softy who is scarcely able to take a knife to a raw chicken...I was surprised, embarrassed, and dismayed all at once,” he writes to admit that he’s harmless.
In the story, Jack faces many problems that he has to overcome which include, not having all the power at the beginning of the book and risking his “manliness” because he was too scared to kill a pig. All which leads his character to have numerous changes as the story went on. Golding clearly showed Jack turning from a proper choir boy to a full out savage by the end of the book. This is important because it shows it is human nature to change as you face hard problems in life. It also shows that no matter who you are, you are going to change someway as you go through your story, just like Jack did in the
The symbolisms of this essay will be of; peach stones, peach blossoms, and the general’s wisdom. The very first symbolism noticed in “The Drummer Boy of Shiloh” was when the soldiers were being compared to peach blossoms.

They were being compared because the plants bloom out and its shows symbolism for maturity for the men. Next, they were being compared to peach blossoms because it shows a sign for men that testosterone.
A handsome kid, really. Sharp gray eyes, lean and narrow-waisted, and when he died it was almost beautiful, the way the sunlight came around him and lifted him up and sucked him high full of moss and vines and white blossoms.” (67) Curt’s death is believable. There’s no doubt about that. To many readers this story appears to be a retelling of a very real event. But after O’Brien’s future reveal that a large majority of The Thing They Carried was invented, many readers may take a second look at many of O’Brien’s stories such as this one.
6. Esperanza doesn’t like to play in the monkey garden anymore because the boys made her feel crazy and ashamed. 7. Illusion is something that looks or seems different from what it really is. The illusions of Esperanza’s were shattered is that the carnival was fun and
“Delve down” denotes “reach inside a receptacle and search for something.” Conversely, “Delve down”connotes darkness because it describes African Americans going deep in the unknown because they don’t want the attention given by society. They feel trapped like the zoo animals and don’t want to be seen like the mole in the zoo. They do not want to be seen because everyone around them judges each of their actions. The tone of ‘delve down’ is hopeless because people want to go deep down in the darkness when they feel

Although both stories in the assignment had different backgrounds, both Junius and Ian were affected by their peers quite a lot, for trying to make their surroundings happy. In the stories, Junius was faced under a lot of pressure when his townspeople expected him to deliver a good poem, which he was then uncapable of doing. Then, in story two, Ian also faced immense pressure when his peers had to enjoy whichever folk festival act became winner of the show, but he wanted to choose the correct option without upsetting or dissapointing anyone. To prove how Junius in source one, “Two Stanzas,” was affected by the crowd, paragraph two quickly reveals evidence. In this paragraph the author stated, “Put on their worst clothes, to sprinkle ashes
In the book Jack is always making fun of Piggy. Jack was being rude to Piggy and saying his fat behind doesn’t do nothing to help while piggy was trying to talk. However some of the time Piggy stands up for himself, “I got the conch … you let me speak!”(Golding 33). Piggy illustrates how its not easy to have integrity. This is because whenever he tries to talk the others mainly Jack just tell him to shut up or take his glasses from him making him feel uncomfortable.
Even though he is skeptical of people he considers phony, such as Marty who lies about seeing a movie star, his negativity and judgement of others usually goes a lot farther than what is considered normal. For example, he doesn’t get serious in relationships with others, because he always seems to find flaws in everyone. Another example is when Holden’s history teacher at Pencey, Mr. Spencer, wants to understand why he refuses to put in any effort. Spencer feels bad about failing Holden and reaches out to him, trying to connect with him and possibly influence him positively. However, Holden gets upset and starts talking poorly of him once he hears this, and later excuses himself with a lie he made up to leave, showing both his self-defence mechanism and his skepticism towards people he liked.
It is said that “The silence was so complete” Piggy is normally shut up when he tries to speak, but this time he was not. He makes all of the other boys realize that they are most likely not going to get off of the island. In this passage it is clear that Piggy is breaking any sliver of hope the boys had for getting off of the island. The boys would not like someone who ruined their time on this parentless
