At the beginning of the poem, the speaker has a tone that demonstrates aggravation and shame towards her mother. During the description of the mother, Hogan worded it in a way the reader could interpret as a negative connotation, which was later made clearer when Hogan pronounced the Grandmother’s hatred toward the white settlers. The speaker’s father, uncle, Grandfather, and Grandmother were all Native Americans, who were constantly removed from their land, where their farms and homes were destroyed by the prospective oil dreamers. “It was the brown stain that covered my white skirt, my whiteness a shame” (28) By inserting this line into the poem, Hogan was able to show what the speaker was really thinking. A lesser author would have put that line at the beginning of the poem, leaving no imagination for the reader.
In My Antonia, Willa Cather pens a nostalgic story focused on a two people with a unique connection. Jim Burden narrates the story of Antonia Shimerda, the girl next door who happens to be a Bohemian emigrant. Jim moves to his grandparents’ house after his parents die; Antonia arrives in the United States with her family and little else.

When his grandfather Potan came and took him out of Saint Joseph’s, Morrisseau became inspired and began to depict the prehistoric art found on the rock walls by his home, and the works his grandfather showed him within the Medewiwin birch scrolls.

Her father’s absence is what formed her mistrust of men which is heavily portrayed in her books. After he left Allende and her family moved back to Chile to live with her grandmother (McCann).

So, now you know why my grandfather inspires me. It’s because even with everything he has faced, the life he has, all the good and the bad, he has been positive. Now, I could end this story telling you ‘those are the reasons why my grandfather inspires me’. But i’m not going to do that.
Genogram and Ecomap Reflection Paper The story of my family laid out on paper with either scribbly lines or straight lines, symbols that represent death or sickness is beautiful and sad at the same time.

Preeminence in all and each is yours; Yet grant some small acknowledgment of ours (Norton 209) Her position as a woman in a puritan colony, and her doubts of the male hierarchy, a judgmental god and her love of her husband and community created much conflict within herself and her poetry. Her inner conflicts are expressed in a letter written to her children before she passed. In the letter she explains the first conflicts she had about her beliefs. “But as I grew up to be about 14 or 15 I found my heart more carnall, and sitting loose from God, vanity and the follyes of youth take hold of me” (Norton 235).

(Slim 32) Slim assumed she was looking for unwarranted attention from him. What the ranch hands did not realize is that her loneliness led her to these actions, “She put her hand behind her back and leaned against the door frame so that her body was thrown forward.” (Steinbeck 31).

For much of her life, Ima Hogg was affectionately known as the “First Lady of Texas,” owing to her family’s long tradition of public service. Her grandfather helped write the Texas state constitution and her father, James Stephen (“Big Jim”) Hogg, went on to become the Lone Star State’s first native-born governor. The inheritance Ima received upon her father’s death in 1906 made her financially independent; he had made a small fortune through his work as an attorney, as well as investments in land and oil. Upon her mother’s and father’s death, Ima went on to be the mother figure in her siblings’ lives, taking on the role for most if not all of her life.
