Minus becoming impure, Ophelia is left brokenhearted and distraught as Hamlet breaks his promises to her of marriage. This broken promise is also one of the stones that later drives her mad. So a reader may find it interesting that even in her state of madness she is able to communicate her heartbreak and touch down on topics most would never consider. While Ophelia does show some good examples of feminism, Queen Gertrude shows even more compelling evidence of feminist lens in the form of Gertrude holding the perfect image of a proper women. The reader can see the feminist lens in Gertrude through her love for her son and when she is always being overlooked by the men in her life.
Although some people will evaluate others based on their appearance, we should not follow their footstep since it is a superficial behavior. Furthermore, outer beauty does not equal to inner beauty that we should not use our first sight to judge others as the outcome may be the opposite. The author’s depiction of Cinderella’s pleasant personality: “The poor girl [Cinderella] bore it all patiently, and dared not tell her father, who would have scolded her; for his wife governed him entirely” (1). Perrault talks how Cinderella forbear her hardness without telling anyone. We can notice that how she does not want anyone to implicate into this event and avert anything is getting complicated.
Anne says this because she believes that everyone is good at heart, but some people just decide to show a bad side. This is really a shame because this teenage girl is still happy and living happily while Hitler and the Nazi’s decide to put people that are not up to their expectations into a concentration camp.

In the Anne Frank The Diary play by Frances Goodrich and Albert Hackett, Anne gives everyone gifts for Hanukkah when they are in hiding, she made the gifts by herself.
1. The subjective conclusions I can make about Mama Speed based on the objective details are that she is a caring, intelligent, and religious woman. The fact that Speed had “dozens of ‘spiritual sons,’ who she treated no different than her six biological sons” shows that she is considerate and nice. Some people do not want to take care of their own children, let alone other children. She wanted the children in the community to be good at math by giving each child “a free Hershey’s kiss for each correct answer.” She helps those children to better their future.

Bettelheim hints that the stepsisters in the story are actually not terrible humans but are normal children. According to Bettelheim, the stepsisters are portrayed evil because the story is told from the inner thoughts of Cinderella, who is in direct competition with the stepsisters for her father’s love and the attention of the stepmother (par. 12).

Walt Disney has been making girls think that in order to be beautiful you have to be the perfect shape and size. (Shortridge). Some people believe that the Disney Princesses are great role models for children because Mulan teaches us to never give up on the strengths we have just because we are girls, Belle teaches us to never judge a book by its cover, and Pocahontas shows us real princesses are strong leaders. On the other hand, some individuals feel that Disney Princesses are bad role models because of their unrealistic body appearance, telling girls every marriage ends with a happily ever after when you get married at a young age, and saying every girl needs a man in order to be happy. Both sides have valid points but in reality everyone
Persepolis Argumentative Essay “If children feel safe, they can take risks, ask questions, make mistakes, learn to trust, share their feelings, and grow.”, (Alfie Kohn). In Persepolis, Mariji’s parents create a safe and free environment within their household to allow her to express herself freely. While she is growing up, she understands the meaning of the revolution through stories, books, and personal events because they provide her with knowledge and can affect her in the future. Some people might say, that her parents are not creating a particularly safe environment, because if the government were to discern their western actions, Marijis family would be punished for going against the extremists values, yet this is incorrect because her parents are upbringing Mariji to be a respectful and intelligent woman within western values.

This poem is a perfect example of how education allows students to be taught about the past and learn from what happened in history to better live in the future. With education comes wisdom and if the students were taught the real stories, they would not have been “messing up [other kids’] hair and breaking their glasses.” Though each poems strides to protect, both are filled with comforting lies that will sooner or later be confronted by the
Fairy tales are a way of using a big metaphor to teach children and society in general about the morals in life. Because of their moral teachings and the extensive appeal to both children and adults, fairy tales are still applicable to the lives of an average person dealing with everyday struggles.
