Buttercup was “barely in the top twenty, and that primarily on potential” for she is an absolute ragamuffin as a child. “She hated to wash her face” or any part of her body which left the “smell of stables” lingering on her constantly. Buttercup only starts to become more beautiful after the visit from The Countess causes her to have a fit of jealousy “rated a close fourth on the all-time

Appreciates life not the possessions Catches the raindrops in her mouth. Mildred Lacks social skills due to increase in technology and isolation and decrease of actual conversations “She went out into the parlor. He heard her singing. ‘Mildred?’ he called. She returned, singing, snapping her fingers softly.” As guy is sick in bed she doesn’t give him any attention Similarities At one point in her life she was curious “The most significant memory he had of Mildred, really, was of a little girl in a forest without trees ( how odd!)
She lives on the ranch with everyone else and just wants to make friends but everyone fears Curley and tries to avoid her. Curley's Wife is the loneliest character in Of Mice and Men. One reason Curley’s Wife is the loneliest is because her name is never stated. As much as this could mean that the guys at the ranch just did not care enough to ask her what her name is, this just proves that she is lonely. Curley's wife is first brought up when Candy says ‘“Wait’ll you see Curley's Wife”’(Steinbeck 28).
The first person point of view offers the reader a look into Ellen’s emotions, enabling the reader to feel the despair and pain that Ellen must suffer through before she dies. On the other hand, The Storm’s narration is that of 3rd person omniscient. The reader is not able to get into the thoughts and feelings of Calixta. Although they are there when Calixta is worried about her husband and child being stuck in the storm and when she is being pleasured by Alcée, they do not feel those emotions with her “She was a revelation in that dim, mysterious chamber; as white as the couch she lay upon” (Chopin 2). Giving the reader the ability to experience Ellen’s emotion versus just having the reader there while Calixta is with her lover is what makes the narration of The Jilting of Granny Weatherall create such a believable
For example, Clarisse talks with her family members at night, walks in the rain, watches people, and knits. Most people would rather watch television than explore nature. Mildred Montag is the polar opposite of Clarisse. Mildred has eyes like a kind of cataract and looks like a praying mantis. She is thin from dieting and her hair is burnt from chemicals.
In Willa Cather’s essay she unfolds Sarah Jewett’s ability to express her feeling for writing through her diction to form art. In Sarah Jewett’s novel, her feeling for writing is shown through her main character who came to New England to write her own novel. Jewett shows the struggles she feels when writing her own novels through her character. In one of the passages she writes, “Literary employments are so vexed and uncertainties at best and and it was not until the voice of conscience sounded louder in my ears than the sea on the nearest pebble beach that I said unkind words of withdrawal to Mrs. Todd”(18). Miss.
Secondly, when she is talking to Lennie, she is talking about how lonely she is at the farm because she doesn’t, “like Curley” (89). She talks about how her career as a dancer was cut short, and that marring Curley was a backup plan incase her dancing career does not work. She was sort of forced into marrying Curley, and now she says that, “I can’t talk to nobody but Curley. Else he gets mad” (87). She is being forced to be alone by Curley; she even states that, “I get Lonely” (87).
It appears as one large paragraph, to be read straight through. The sparing use of periods and absence of stanzas eliminates the use of a steady rhythm in the poem and limit breaks. The jarring words support the straightforward tone. Smith does not ease the reader into this emotional lifestyle but instead uses her poem as a way to throw the reader into the life of a black girl. In her frank tell- all poem she bears it all: the burdens and the blessings of black childhood, adolescent hood, then
In “The Debt” each line rhymes with the next line making every two lines a couplet. In Dunbar’s poem “Sympathy” there is end rhyme present but no real rhyme scheme. Those are some of the rhythmic elements Dunbar uses in his writing. Dunbar writes his poems on very serious matters, such as life and dreams and identity. In his poem “We Wear the Mask” Dunbar writes about people wearing masks but the true meaning of the poem is how people will try to hide their identity to look like a better more perfect person.
