How is Catherine unique? In the book, Rules by Cynthia Lord, Catherine was the main character who faced many challenges throughout the book. She has a mom who does not really understand her problems.

Have you ever been left by a so called “friend”? When I say left, I am referring to all sorts of different ways of being excluded at some point by someone you call a friend. This of course includes them no longer acknowledging you, them slowly drifting away from you but closer to someone else, and them leaving you hanging both physically and mentally. The theme of “people drifting apart brings one person closer to themself” is used in many novels and short stories as it is a very relatable topic and can get the reader to feel closer to a character and feel more emotion toward them.
Casual Racism, An Aspect Of Society: Rhetorical Strategies In Get Out Although blatant acts of racism have diminished since the 1900’s, acts of casual racism are now predominant in America. In the film, Get Out, written and directed by Jordan Peele, Peele claims that acts of casual racism are aimed at ethnic minorities. Peele begins to build his credibility by addressing issues of casual racism in the text, targeting the White liberals as his audience, using constraints to encourage empathy for his character Chris, and by covering the controversial issue of America being a “post-racial” society as the exigence in Get Out. Peele, a comedy writer, actor, and ethnic minority, has been praised for his portrayal on his hit comedy show

A Midsummer Night’s Dream: The Dirty Truth As you walk into an untouched forest you feel some kind of freedom of your soul. Feeling the clean air filling your lungs, the warm sunlight on your face, and your mind running free; there is nothing to compare. However some do not experience that walking into a forest. Instead they enjoy the order, power and walls of society. In Shakespeare's play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, the forest and the Athenian court meet each other in unusual ways.
Deviance of Social Roles: A Doll House & Proof In the plays, Proof by David Auburn and A Doll House by Henrik Ibsen, the protagonists deviate from their social norms by thinking outside of the box and living beyond the labels adhered to them. Every society has a set of rules, attached to certain roles that each member within that role is expected to follow. In Proof, Catherine’s mathematical ability dispels the stereotype that women can’t contribute to the field of mathematics and proves that her eccentric behavior isn’t due to being mentally ill. While in A Doll House, Nora’s awakening allows her to envision a life where she is free to think, act and live without having to rely on a man.
Prostitution, a colossal industry that dates back to 18th century B.C, spans across all nationalities and socioeconomic classes, yet its mass criminalization and lack of regulation forces workers into hazardous conditions and perpetuates the violation of fundamental human rights. In Lucinda Ramberg’s “Given to the Goddess,” the intertwining relationship of religion and prostitution is evaluated through Ramberg’s analysis of the social roles of devadasis, or servants of god. Devadasis begin as children within lower castes whose parents, seeking either to preserve familial lineage or avoid possible afflictions imposed by the gods, dedicate the children into a celestial marriage through which they are mortally bound to a god. Due to both their
There are two sides to every story—conventions and archetypes manifest depending on the angle dystopians and post-apocalyptics are viewed at. In John Wyndham’s The Chrysalids, a common held belief is that the novel is merely a post-apocalyptic dystopian novel much like most of the books that share the same genre around the time of the Cold War. At first glance, the story shares the narrative of an isolated post-nuclear civilization situated in Labrador and Newfoundland, Canada, where the mutated citizens of the region are sterilized and abolished by the religious government if found; the mutants thus endeavor on a journey to escape the injustice. However, upon taking a closer look through the archetypal lens, one can attest that there are archetypal
