The administrative framework of Egypt was also left unscathed. Egypt was then opened to Macedonian and other Greek immigrants. Alexander conceptualized Egypt as a province with a ruler and a culture that were to be both Greek and Macedonian. This notion of Egypt proved to be an important turning point in Egyptian history, creating a new and diverse culture. Alexander was a pious man who began each day with sacrifices to the gods, consequently he was pleased to worship the Egyptian deities as he associated their gods with his own.
The conflict among the two main characters in the texts “Confetti Girl” by Diana Lopez and “Tortilla Sun” by Jennifer Cervantes is like Hazel battling cancer in “The Fault In Our Stars.” In the first passage, the contention is between a young girl and her father about doing her homework. In the second excerpt, Izzy and her mother battle about having to spend two months away from each other while her mom is in Costa Rica graduating and she is in New Mexico with her grandmother. In both texts, the conflict develops when the child feels neglected and abandoned, but wants quality time with the parent and when the parent just wants what is best for the child. The obscure narrator in “Confetti Girl” feels like she is being neglected and abandoned by her oblivious father. The child envisions that her dad only cares about books and is leaving her high and dry her due to searching for a book when she narrates the following.
The Lincoln Memorial stands upon a roundabout capturing the attention of all passerby’s, due to Lincoln’s “colossal marble statue” and two of his most outstanding “speeches [are] carved on” the grandeur walls. Such a remarkable masterpiece appeals to the eye’s of all and entices them of the history of the United States. The large monument has a clean cut design, with the use of marbles and pillars, and seating Lincoln in the center of it all, helps draw the attention to one specific figure and honor him, as well as his accomplishments. Similarly, like the Lincoln memorial stands the carving of the Crazy Horse, it itself is a powerful demonstration of a historical figure, the statue demonstrates its authority with its “broad chest” and “outstretched arm,” while mounted on “his horse.” The statue symbolizes the strength of the man, through the detail of his muscular body and his large and magnificent horse. This statue calls attention to not only
In the article, “Shattered Lives” by Kristin Lewis, Dania faces many challenges. One challenge that she faced was that she was part of a war and had to leave all of the things she loved behind. On page 6 the author states “They faced a devastating choice: Stay and risk death, or leave everything behind…” Another piece of text evidence is “ In september, their choice became clear. They fled.” (6) Another challenge she had to face was that Dania had no education. The author clearly states on page 6 “Dania looked forward to going to school each day and took pride in the gold stars her teacher gave her for completing hr homework on time.” Some more proof for that challenge on page (7) is “by 2013, it had become too dangerous for most kids, including
The poem "Sick" by Shel Silverstein, was written from the perception of a girl named Peggy Ann McKay, who makes-up ridiculous reasons to not attend school. Until she’s told that it was Saturday, her perspective changes. Suddenly, her symptoms disappeared and she rushed outside to play. Shel expressed the way that not only children think, but the way adults think as well. Who would not want to get out of bed early in the morning and go to work or class, although it is necessary for children and the employed to do so.
She struggles through the celebrations at school. Then she scolds herself. She should thank her mother for leaving,” (p. 24) from which Nazario takes a severe circumstance of Belky not seeing her mother and making it relatable by showing Belky’s guilt for feeling resentment toward her mother when her mother is making grave sacrifices to care for
After this Fritz and Gertas mother comes home and finds out her children are risking their lives and digging and she’s really mad! (For a good reason because they could be killed at any moment!) But after some convincing, even though she’s not happy about it, she agrees to let them keep digging and she even helps too! On their second last day of digging they hear knocking, faint voices and footsteps coming from the other side of the wall. Fearing the worst, they think it’s soviets who have discovered them and are planning to surprise them when their tunnels meet.
The characters of the stories demonstrate that there is no separation from the mechanical and have dependent inclinations that revolve around technology. Bradbury stresses the impact that the Happylife [sic] Home had on the Hadley’s through the demonstrative actions of the children and the parents. Lydia and George debate the children’s temper tantrums when they had turned off the nursery and the ending result where Lydia states, “You know how difficult Peter is about that. When I punished him a month ago by locking the nursery for even a few hours – the tantrum he threw! And Wendy too.
I didn’t feel anything different, I just felt angrier. One day as I sat down and talked with one of my aunts, she told me, “Some things happen for a reason.” I told myself that I wasn’t going to allow the absence of my father prevent me from getting father in life. Many always thought that I was just this angry little girl, but they never sat down and asked me why I felt so angry inside. Not having that male role model in a child’s life can lead them down the road to destruction. The strength that I have gained was to take the pain and use it as a lesson in life.
In the beginning of the story Georgiana is characterized as being a foolish young girl that is extremely weak. She is dependent on other people's judgment and when her husband hates her birthmark that everyone thought made her so beautiful she asks him, “Then why did you take me from my mother's side? You cannot love what shocks you!”(page 1, paragraph 6). She was dependent on her mother to tell her what to do constantly and how she told her she was so beautiful, therefore, when she had a change in scenery it was confusing to her. After being told multiple times a day that he could not stand to look at her she figures out that when she compliments him she receives compliments in return.
