In the poem “Those Winter Sundays,” by Robert Hayden, the visual imagery is seeing that the child might be thankful for everything their father does for them, but he/she does not show it as much as they should. In the poem there is proof when he says, “No one ever thanked him”(Line 5). This meant as if the child regretted it as they got older because they said, “What did I know, what did I know of love’s austere and lonely offices” (Line 13-14). They felt the parents had a duty to take care of their children no matter what and how ungrateful they seemed to be. In the beginning the poem is abruptly because the second word “too”, of the very first line of the poem assumes actions that has previously being going on before.

But while Father pushes ideals of toxic masculinity onto his son, Mother also pushed similar ideals on their daughter Nanny. When speaking with her daughter about how she felt about her husband’s decision to build a barn instead of a home, she seems to push the thought that women are nothing without men. She tells Nanny, “One of these days you’ll find out, an’ then you’ll know that we know only what men-folks think we do.” (Freeman 651) They go on to speak of how Adoniram treats the two of them, they realize that they are lucky that he does not force them to work and by most standards, they live good lives. But Nanny is marrying soon and though she has high hopes for how her husband will treat her, Sarah doesn’t seem to have high hopes. Aside from wanting her to be married in their house, preferably a nice house, and though it is never explicitly stated, it seems as though Sarah realizes that she has to set an example for her daughter and prove that women are more than what men define them to
In the poem and memoir, they both show courage but show them in a different way. Sarah influenced the children’s hearts in the park to stop bullying and for them to all be friends. On the other hand, Ana influenced herself and part of her family to work hard and have the courage and be determined. In “Making Sarah Cry” it states, “Determination on her face, Sticking up for one of her own tormentors And willing to take his place.” She is trying to show everyone in the playground that you can stand up to your bully and that having courage will make you stronger and better than before. In I “Escaped a Violent Gang” it shows, “I began to see that there were other things besides gang life - that I could have a future, that I could graduate.” She is trying to tell those few people that you can do if you have the courage and that you can make it to where you want to
In the novel, Roll of Thunder, Hear My Cry, Stacey 's perspective of his friendships with T.J Avery and Jeremy Simms, affects the decisions Stacey decides to make in Chapter 7. Stacey finally, finally, realizes that Jeremy Simms could, and probably would be a better friend than T.J Avery, but is aware of what is going on racially between whites and blacks. I believe that Stacey knows, just how much stuff he lets T.J get away with but, just can 't seem to confront him about the behaviors he is showing and displaying to him, and his family members. Stacey is now conscious of how hurtful T.J Avery can be, but we see he continues to be his "best" friend throughout Chapter 7. For example, in Chapter 1, T.J. makes fun of Little Man when Little Man is
An Unusual Lifestyle Most common/weird names are given to a person because there is usually a meaning to it and throughout time those people tend to figure out the meaning of their given names. In Shel Silverstein’s poem “A Boy Named Sue,” readers find out that a father abandoned his son while also naming him Sue in which the boy hates his given name. The boy does not know why his father gave him that horrible name, but he ends up finding out that his father named his Sue because he knew that it would make him into a strong person. The boy named Sue had a tough time growing up and he was really angry with his father for naming him that but he had a benefit within that name because that name is what made him into a man. He hates that name and the only thing to do to make him feel better is for him to kill the man that gave him that awful name.
But, little one, ain 't nobody 's respect worth more than your own,” (Taylor, 134).

Taylor uses Cassie Logan as an example of courage, although she has faced many rough and harsh times she has used courage to overcome them. Cassie faces many challenges but some of the ones that stood out to me were, standing up to the teacher when Little Man did not want his book because of the condition that it was in, standing up for herself at the Mercantile when she was not waited on, and T.J when he was not being so nice to Cassie and the Loganś. Cassie was a very smart and intelligent person. She always wanted to know what was going on because she wanted to know if there was something that she could do to help.
