The first thing Morrie tells us about his new mother shows that he is very fond of her. She is called his “saving embrace”, and that shows that he likes her. We know that she is a very energetic person and she brings positive atmosphere into the rather dim areas that his father creates. In quite a few aspects, she is the opposite of Morrie’s father and brings a very positive atmosphere into Morrie’s life. I believe that Eva is a big reason that Morrie is as loving and caring as he is.
Not dead to history and her like his family, she proudly carries her name and identity in her earring and is not ashamed of it. Rather, Pilate embraces her past and what she has learned throughout her travels is important to her. Therewith, she gives Milkman a legacy he cannot get at his own home by becoming the missing part in his life since this knowledge and legacy is what Milkman still misses.

In Scott Russell Sanders’ essay “The Inheritance of Tools”, Sanders explores the relationship that he had with his father. Concrete objects like the wooden tools that he inherits from his father provide the basis for the reflections on his relationship with his father. He manages to indicate his attitude very early on in the essay using both features of style and rhetorical strategies. The author establishes his love for his father and sadness at his passing by narrating an anecdotal story involving his hammer, word choice that conveys his sadness, and strong use of imagery. The paragraph in Sanders’ essay that explains the story behind the handle of his hammer and how he had broken it several times uses an anecdotal story to convey Sanders’ attitude towards his father 's death.
That kindness and compassion, no matter how big or small, immediately comforts the woman and stops her continuous sobbing. Next, Naomi shows further compassion and kindness by calling the Palestinian woman’s son and shows kindness even to him, by comforting his worries about his mother by telling him she’ll stay with her. After that, the narrator calls the elderly woman’s other sons, Naomi’s own father, and even some Palestinian poets to chat with the senior Palestinian woman in Arabic. The father and the Palestinian poets also must have showed kindness because by this time, the old woman is laughing, patting Naomi’s knee, and amicably chatting. This is an example of how compassion and kindness are contagious.
He employs the use of the words such as “Okies”, “gleaming”, “goddamn”, “lithely”, and “dark curl of crisp pork”. These words, together, manifest into a detailed description of scenery, characters, and the common life of the migrants. The words “Okies” and “goddamn” demonstrate Steinbeck’s desire to allow his piece to flow with accuracy as if the characters were real people having a conversation. These words were common and conversational throughout the time of the 1930s and the Dust Bowl, allowing the reader to be transported within the story. Steinbeck’s written conversations in Grapes of Wrath demonstrate unity due to their communal and friendly nature.
As for the tone, the narrator of the story seems dependable, but often infiltrates irony and dark humor. Many of the statements made also require the reader to make his/her own inferences regarding the subject matter. On the other hand, tenses often shift from the present to the past in Stanley’s life, Kate Barlow, and of Stanley’s great-great-great grandfather. Holes exposes one to the predominant theme of how fate and history easily impact everyday life- from the moment the sneakers landed onto Stanley, his exposures to his previous hapless circumstances, and how ultimately he finds himself to be in the right place at the right
The theme that readers can learn from Harper Lee’s novel To Kill a Mockingbird (1960) is the importance of having honesty and integrity. Throughout the entire book, there are many honest and virtuous instances that are meaningful. A few characters, such as Atticus Finch, a wise lawyer in his forties; and Calpurnia, an African-American maid and nanny to Atticus’s children; display good morals which can benefit the readers, however; other people such as Aunt Alexandra, Atticus’s sister displays poor ethics. The classic novel set in the 1930s, though fictional, contains an extremely important lesson worthy of comprehending. Throughout the novel, Atticus Finch speaks the truth to everyone he comes into contact with.
Roger via his own quotes and the words of those who have direct experience interacting with him are used to make the story authenticated and believable, the authors way of leaving out his own personal analysis of Mr. Rogers allows for reader interpretation and makes the piece of writing as a whole better and more interesting. One of the many anecdotes provided by the author about people’s experiences with Mr. Rogers includes a woman exclaiming, “Oh, Mister Rogers, thank you for my childhood.” "Oh, Mister Rogers, you're the father I never had." "Oh, Mister Rogers, would you please just hug me?" (pg.1). It is clear from this account how people who have interacted with Mr. Rogers feel about him, and this is only one of many with the same praise and affection.
While the poem may come across as boring during the first read, once the words are understood along with their associated meanings, the real message comes to light. This poem echos an elderly pair who find themselves continuing in their daily routines and reflecting upon their younger lives. Despite not living a “flawless” life, the old couple seems content with their situation, both past and present. For example, the third paragraph states, “And remembering… Remembering, with twinklings and twinges…” (468). The words “twinklings and twinges” refer to the good and bad they’ve encountered and endured.
“Whose Mouth Do I Speak With” by Suzanne Rancourt, also talks about their father. “Whose Mouth Do I Speak With” gives their father lots of appreciation, such as referring to him as “Coyote”. Even as she says “we had no money” she still continues to admire her dad. They both show sentiment and nostalgia in their narrations. The overall theme statement of this poem is that the best memories are the ones that are still felt.
