The speaker talks about his mother but gives her the identity of his grandmother. Mother’s are usually seen as strong women, which is maybe why the speaker described his mother in such a way:”Because if I’d said ‘my mother’ you wouldn’t believe a word of it, since a mother should be leading a research group, or running a software company…” The speaker is trying to convince the reader that the grandmother fired the shot, even though the mother had done it. He is once again masking her true identity. In both poems, there seems to be a common misconception about the main characters. Richard Cory is thought of to be the ideal man in the eyes of the townspeople, but in reality, he isn’t.

This creation has brought joy to my life and helped me through rough times but, there are many different types of music that people may be interested in. I would prefer cajun and hip-hop music over any other kind because growing up with three brothers that is all I would listen to and I got used to hearing it. In the Novel Excerpt “Two Kinds,” Jing-Mei asks her mother “Why don’t you like me the way I am?” she asks this because she does not understand why her mother wants her to be competitive in music but the way she grew up she did not appreciate it like her mother did. In the next Informational Text “What is Cultural Identity,” it shows what can be created from the different values and beliefs people are exposed to. Music caught my attention throughout my childhood experiences.
Quote: “Unhappy that I am, I cannot heave / My heart into my mouth. I love your majesty / According to my bond; no more nor less” Speaker: Cordelia Explanation: Cordelia says this to her father King Lear because she is showing that she is in love with the King. This is important because she was the only one out of all of her sisters to speak the truth with how she feels. King Lear forced them to tell him how much they love him so that he could divide up the kingdom for them. She knows that it is her job to love him as a father and a king, but she was unable to show how much she loves him.
