In the story "Saying Goodbye to Yang," written by Alexander Weinstein, and the story "St. Lucy 's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves," written by Karen Russell, there are several ways these stories could be seen as humorous or funny/not funny. Each story that we have read is unique in that they each had some sense of humor about them, whether it be witty humor, dry humor, or maybe even the funny/not funny kind of humor. Different types of humor can be interpreted from each of the stories we have read this semester. Yes, these stories can be seen as a joke but there are serious ideas about them. Each story undoubtedly has important concepts intertwined into them.
The nurse should participate in the care of baby k .As a nurse, we needs to give a dignified care for the baby and family members. In the nursing code of ethics, Fowler (2015) describe provision 1 as “The nurse in all professional relationship, practice with compassion and respect for the inherent dignity, worth and uniqueness of every individual, unrestricted by considerations of social and economic status, personal attributes, and the nature of health problems.”(P.1)This nurse code of ethics obliged us to give good care with dignity regardless of age or health condition. In the same manner nurse should participate in full in care of baby
Anderson’s Feed also acts in a way society views as deviant. She is tired of the immense influence that the feed has on people. This mentality leads her to rebel. “What I’m doing...is trying to create a customer profile that’s so screwed, no one can market to it.” (Anderson 98) Her goal was to stop, or at least lessen, the hold technology has on her life. The rebellion does not become a problem until she needs the corporations help to pay for her feed.
Judy starts her essay off by showing that she is credibly to the reader or uses ethos. In the first paragraph she states, “I am a Wife. And, not altogether incidentally, I am a mother”(229). In say she is a mother and a wife, she shows her readers that she know what they are going through and that she has experienced some of the discrimination they have. Also being a wife, allows for readers to put themselves in her shoes and understand what she is saying is true.
Satire was originally designed to attack vice or folly (Griffin 4). Most of the early work that used satire had a great deal of ridicule and wit in the writing style. This was used to demonstrate the character in a way that was still morally correct. Horace used satirical elements in most of his work to “seeks to laugh men out of their follies” (Griffin 7). This means that the use of satire in many early works was used to criticize an individual until that individual saw the errors in their ways.
The word “fiend” describes an almost demonic hunger, which shows how she was seen to be immoral. During the play, in Act 1 Scene 5, she wants to be filled “from the crown to the toe top-ful of direst cruelty”, which show her desire to be morally corrupt and be only driven by ambition and power. Moreover, Lady Macbeth asks to take her “milk for gall”. This would have been very disturbing and perverted, as women at the time were seen to be only for child-bearing so, turning her breast milk into bitterness would be removing the sole purpose for her existence and would be tampering with the natural order of things. Further, Lady Macbeth would “dashed the brains out” of “the babe that milks me”.
Furthermore, Feminist Criticism provides a better view of literature because it shows that women can be powerful. When Emilia finds out that her husband has been plotting an evil plan she says,” Tis proper I obey him, but not now”(Othello V.2.195). Emilia refuses to help her husband after she finds the cruel intentions he has despite the expectation of women always being submissive to their husbands. Women also have a voice and feelings, they are capable of defying their husbands commands when they know what he expects is simply wrong. In a literary article,The Role of Women in Othello: A Feminist Reading states that,” Society weighs heavily on the shoulders of women; they feel that they must support the men and defer to them, even if the actions of the men are questionable” (Literary Articles).
They had to stay home and look after the children and do the domestic chores while their husband went to work. In Judy Brady’s, “I Want A Wife,” she illustrates what women would do on a daily basis: “ I want a wife who will keep my clothes clean, ironed, mended, and replaced when need be. ...” Women were held responsible for doing everything for her husband and children. They never once thought of themselves, their lives revolved around their husband and kids. In Kate Chopin’s novel The Awakening, she demonstrates how being restricted to one role because of their gender can, therefore, have major consequences just like how it did to Edna.
Brady states, “I want a wife who will keep my house clean. I want a wife who will take care of my physical needs. I want a wife who will keep my clothes clean. A wife who will pick up after me” (Brady 387). The list goes on and on, I can compare my home life humorously with what Brady is expressing.
It’s the worst kind of shame, almost as bad ad begging on the streets where the tinkers hold up their scabby children. Give up a penny for the poor child, mister, the poor child is hungry, missus(250).” The feeling that Frank has at that time, I bet Angela has the same feeling either. However, she doesn’t mind to use her dignity to exchange a meal for her children. As a mother, Angela is doing her best to get the basic needs for her children. Even though the process of getting that meal is disgraceful, she choose to hide this ugly truth for her children and hold up the shameful feeling in her heart.
