Panttaja’s explicit reason for writing this article seems to be that she is trying to inform the readers on the differences between our societies view on Cinderella and how the Cinderella of the original story acts. However, Panttaja’s implicit reason is a bit more subjective. She is trying to persuade readers that Cinderella is morally compromised. The reason why this implicit message is not as prominent as the explicit message is because Panttaja uses excerpts from the book to tie into her argument. This created a good, professional discipline throughout the paper that made the whole argument very believable.

They think they can bend the rules and do what they think is necessary. Jeannette is exposed to these understandings, making her the person she grew up to be. Jeanette demonstrates how she struggles with her family throughout numerous portions of the novel: “The Desert,” “Welch,” New York.” These struggles developed and defined who she came to be. Throughout “The Desert,” Jeanette is exposed to everything directly from her parents. The immediate connection on how she perceives things based on how her parents do, deviates her struggles with comprehending the real society.
The authors show this by their diction and tone, as well as sharing stories about the discrimination they've experienced. Throughout the articles it is easy to tell that the authors are upset with the situation.

Also, Roethke used “unfrown” to show that the situation wasn’t super serious and it was just that the mother was just upset. Although, the author used words that may contain two meanings with different connotations, the meaning of the words became clear when it was apply to the text. Therefore, the author’s choice of diction help clarify the overall meaning of the poem and allows the readers the understand the poem more clearly.

The illustrations added imagery to the story and allowed me to imagine what was going on in a different way than I would have if the pictures were not given. It was also interesting to contrast my thoughts of what was happening in the story versus the illustrator’s thoughts, as that they were very different, and are very different to every reader. The illustrations also allowed me to see into yours and Dave McKean’s minds and what your thoughts were while reading the story. While I liked the illustrations, I did not really like the beginning of the book all too much. The whole time I was reading it I couldn’t help but wonder how the baby was able to make it all the way to the graveyard on his own, and how he ended up at the graveyard of all places.
Anne Bradstreet used false modesty to avoid criticism from a male-dominated society that did not accept women as equals. Anne Bradstreet metaphorically referred to her book of poems as an “ill-form’d offspring” (line 1) as a judgment of its poetic worth. The constant repetition of the book being in critics hands, due to “errors were not lessened (all may judg) (line 6), demonstrated the fear she has to the judgment of her lack of resources and abilities from the press. She instead, judged all her poem’s errors because she had knowledge that her book would be published. In addition, she was not ambiguously sincere, since she bragged about her impressive poetic ability and stated her work as awful and shameful for critics to highlight her virtues.

Every single symbol in the novel have meaning, and gives the reader extra information to interpret the book. The book “The scarlet Letter” has unique conflicts along with dramatic irony, and diverse symbols, but without the symbols the book wouldn't have the engaging story behind everything. Hester the novels main character shows a way to wear the scarlet letter “A” off the way she wants it to be worn. And though the book does end in a fairly happy ending, with all of the evil and sin in the novel there are some blissful
This theme came about in Dickinson’s poem because it explained of the defense that anger could offer her to protect herself, but it also presented problems of being wretched to others. The author can be seen as a somewhat caring individual throughout this poem because she always seems to be caught between being nasty to a person or letting them be nasty to her. She always seems to allow herself to be hurt just so no one else has to be, but eventually her anger overwhelmed her and now anger is not only seen as her enemy but also as her friend. Although Dickinson’s poem “My Life had stood a Loaded Gun” deals with the battle between using and controlling ones wrath; Marvin Gaye’s song “Anger” talks more about trying to conceal and eliminate his old rage. Dickinson can be described as a quieter individual who seems to prefer taking the safer route, yet wants to defend oneself deep down.
The Princess Bride is an average book, meaning that there were interesting parts and some parts that were not engaging. I enjoyed how they included great detail when describing everyone’s live and what shaped them throughout time because it gives you an overview on what the character is like. Although I didn 't like how during the story when something interesting is happening, the author, William Goldman, would interrupt and spoil some parts, because as a reader, I like to find out what happens without having to stop in the middle of the story. Lastly, since I do not enjoy fantasy books, I did catch myself throughout the book zoning out because some parts were just not interesting and I didn’t like how the author would ramble on at some points.
