She uses an extended metaphor that flourishes from the beginning of the poem all the way to the end. She compares the quilt to her diversified family describing it with many mundane colors. She uses a hyperbole when discussing the quilt saying how she would “have good dreams for a hundred years under this quilt” (21-22). This is an exaggeration referring to how comforting the quilt is that she could sleep with it for a hundred years. This also ties back into the title “The Century Quilt” because a century is one hundred years long.
When Holden crosses streets it is always involved with danger or hectic scenes proving that he is not ready to choose and, in his mind, creates a hectic scene. This can be seen after Holden visited his sister, Phoebe. Before he crosses the street he is reminded of cheerful and happy memories of him and his sister, like when they visited Bloomingdale 's together. “The Christmas before last I took her downtown shopping with me. We had a helluva time…….We went in the shoe department and we pretended she--old Phoebe-- wanted to get a pair of those very high storm shoes, the kind that have a million holes to lace up…...It was a dirty trick, but it killed old Phoebe….old Phoebe always starts giggling”(197).
I can not seem to get Elizabeth’s attention for more than a second without her looking at me the way she does. She looks at me as though she might never forgive me and it really hurts me inside to know I have caused her so much pain. I enter my house with my gun after a long day in the woods planting crops. I lay my gun against the wall and make my way to the kitchen quietly listening to Elizabeth’s soft voice singing our beloved children to sleep. I see a pot in the fireplace and go give the soup a taste.
I knew there was something I wanted to ask you if I could have.” Dee knew the answer would be yes before she even asked. “And I want the dasher too,” Dee says. She just came home to visit, and she’s already wanting stuff. It also bothers me how in lines 231-233 Mama says, “Dee moved back just enough so that I couldn’t reach the quilts. They already belonged to her.” I think that’s very disrespectful to her mom, and always getting what she wanted has affected her a lot.

This is the beginning of a life without Junie but a new cycle to honor Junie through the quilts. Aunt Ida perfectly expresses her pain when she sees the clothes of her grandson and asks herself what she will do with all the clothes (44). Yet she reassures herself and remembers that she can use Junie clothes to make a quilt. Inclusively, she recalls Junies giggles while she starts to quilt (45). The poem chronically
In The Fair Angiola, she escapes with the prince by leaving with him but before they left she gave all the furniture food something to eat so that they would not tell the witch where she went. However, there was a broom behind the door that she forgot to feed. This is a fairy tale, but it is just extremely absurd to make furniture talk, see, and eat. When she left she took three magical balls of yarn and and her dog followed them. When the witch got home she was furious, she asked the furniture where she went but they said she didn 't know, but the angry broom called out and told the witch was had happened.

As my uncle was pulling up to the house, I thought to myself “ let 's get this over with.” We had gathered the food and piles of things in the trunk to take into the house. My sister rang the doorbell and I heard footsteps. A second later my aunt came to the view and said to my mom, “ Hello! I 've haven 't seen you guys for a while. Well, come on!
Me living with my grandparents all my life changed me. My mom always bought things for me and came to visit. Her visiting was the worst tho because she never stayed for long. How I felt in school with everyone talking about how great they mom was, I had nothing to say because I didn't know her. My grandparents were my care takers, so when my mom came back home from the navy, it took me time to get to know her personally.

I agree that The Beverly Hillbillies in episode two exploits hillbilly, redneck and white trash stereotypes. In the beginning of the scene, the Clampett family arrived to their new home stunned that they have a driveway leading to their residence. This proves that hillbillies are. stereotype to be in a low class Caucasian. In addition, as the attendant showed the family around their new home, the grandma told jethro to "fetch my stove so I can get some vittles to cook".

" Because its my drea-" Ronnie starts to spit up and mother jolts to the washroom before I can even finish my sentence. I lift the registration form and crumple in into my palms.
