It is a film about courage in adversity and friendship. The audience is engaged the entire film and as the film is from the perspective of a German family, who are normally considered the enemy in films about World War II, it is interesting to see the war from their perspective. The film brought up the topic of man’s inhumanity and what we are willing to do to each other if given the chance. Through the personal and empathetic connections we make with the characters, we (the audience) reflect on actions (although less major than dropping bombs) even if minor which have hurt or effected people negatively. I would recommend this film to people of all ages who have felt out of place at some point in their lives when they have moved to a new environment and people who would like to look at war and death from a different
I overall really liked Janice Mirikitani’s “Suicide Note.” I found the piece to be beautiful, as well as very sad. I absolutely loved the detailing and vivid descriptions, the relation to the birds.

The voice of marginalized women belonging to the so-called inferior race rings persuasively in the novel, A Mercy. Lisa M. Logan is attentive to this aspect of the novel. She is keenly interested in examining this aspect of the novel. Logan's view is cited in the following extract: Morrison’s novel operates as an evocative object, bridging the historical facts of patriarchy with the emotional resonance of non-elite, marginalized women’s experiences. The stories of Florens, Lina, and Rebekka show that early America was especially dangerous, tenuous, and brutal for women and girls.
Mrs. Hale, as the protagonist in this play, is Mrs. Wright’s main defender and champion. There is a profound sadness throughout this play.

Douglass’s and Chopin’s rhetoric are mainly similar in their use of pathos to develop the idea that the situation the characters are facing are terrible. For example, Douglass uses pathos in the lines, “ The head, neck, and shoulders of Mary were literally cut to pieces. I have frequently felt her head, and found it nearly covered with festering sores, caused by the lash of her cruel mistress… (Douglass, VI)” Douglass uses this crude description of the slave Mary to appeal to the audience’s emotions and to express how slavery was an abomination. Chopin also uses pathos in the lines, “The tears came so fast to Mrs. Pontellier’s eyes that the damp sleeve of her peignoir no longer served to dry them… she could not have told why she was crying.

The narrator suggests that the country can actually "cure" some of the bad effects of the city “Who can tell how scenes of peace and quietude sink into the minds of pain-worn dwellers in close and noisy places, and carry their own freshness deep into their jaded hearts?” (32.51)” The post-colonial perspective Oliver Twist’s text contains a lot of imagery and descriptions.
