This is a Korean female in her late 40 to early 50 with an education background who came from a middle-class family. The character was portraying as a thin lady with black hair who dressed in her Asian clothing standing there with rage and her expectation is for someone to heard her and will help her to find justices for her Korean people. This character has a strong personality and has a lot of opinions about justice. Who is very upset of what had just happened to her people and want the world to know what had just happen to her people. How I come to this conclusion is the ways Anna was standing and the vocabulary that Anna is using to articulate the character English.
6700 Engwr 300 Essay 3 Dr. Jordan WC: Reframing Feminism for Black Women Beautiful gardens and handmade colorful quilts are not often the symbols of rebellion, however, in Alice Walker’s In Search of Our Mothers’ Gardens, these are the pictures of defiance. As she speaks of resilience, spirituality and the need to create, Walker explores what happened to our mothers’ minds when they were placed in systems of oppression unable to pursue higher learning and ‘refined’ art. One overarching theme in Walker’s essay is the idea of a legacy for women and the ability to create art; a theme which is paralleled in the book A Room of One’s Own by Virginia Woolf, which Walker quotes several times within her essay.

In the beginning Mary comes off as a kind and well spoken young woman who tries to live life with moralistic principles guiding her. Mary is presented as a good hearted, hardworking, and naive young lady. The author gives the audience the idea of innocence as one of Mary’s earliest traits to show she is similar to the reader and to establish a connection to him/her. Examples of this would be Mary helping the proctors in house cleaning regularly despite being a court official. In Act 1 Mary states “I’ll
Throughout the novel, there are many circumstances where Annie wants to be loved and treated like a child by her mother, however, her mother treats her in a different manner than what she expects. This has a clear correlation with Annie’s attitude towards her mom. Annie states that “The whole Earth fell silent. The two black things joined together in the middle of the room seperated, hers going to her, mine coming back to me”(Kincaid, 102). A deeper look into this quote will show you that Annie and her mother have indistinguishable similarities and have a close bond, however, the bond is not the same as it was before since

It also made a woman at that time one with her society.” (Kazan, 48) The traditions made Blanche feel safe in the cruel world, but also made her feel independent.
Kesey has used characterisation to get the idea that in this novel there are aspects of venerability and strength. In Nurse Ratched’s case, Kesey has made it so that she is shown with strength and power over the whole ward, including the black men in white, other nurses, and mainly the patients. An example of Nurse Ratched’s power over the patients is when she says to Billy Bibbit, “What worries me, Billy, ' she said- I could hear the change in her voice- 'is how your mother is going to take this.” This shows how one sentence was able to debilitate Billy into begging Nurse for forgiveness and restraint of telling his mother.

For Instance toward the end of the book, we don’t see this in the movie, Susanna stops to look at a painting, she is seventeen so we have gone back in time to recall this memory. As she stops to look at the painting she says “I looked into her brown eyes and recoiled. She as warning me of something-she had looked up from her work to warn me.

Growing up as a young black African-American girl in the rural south, Atlanta Georgia to be exact was not just southern peaches and cream, but more everyday trials and tribulations that built character.

Exercise One: Judging the book by its cover, Mary Anne Brifman is a woman of style and sophistication. She wore a timeless black blouse and laced herself in strands of stunning white pearls. The delicate wrinkles in her décolletage and her loosely pined wisps of hair defied the stereotypes of a prominent Madam. By The light in her face when she talked you also wouldn’t guess she was back in Queensland to deal with her mother’s murder. In fact, the only thing that hinted at her naughty and troubled life chapters were her cocked eyebrows, a few frown lines, her cheeky smirk and the way she commanded your attention from a knowingly raised finger.

In the film, “The Help” directed by Tate Taylor, an important relationship for me was that between Minny and Hilly. The two of them placed in the same room together created for some hilariously memorable scenes, including the scene where Minny gets fired and the iconic “eat my shit scene”.

There was a raging storm going outside and while Minny as like all other black maids in this era of history would commonly go outside in the separate bathroom reserved for blacks only should she ever feel the need to ‘relieve herself’.
