After the tragic death of her brother years back, Annie is still devastated and is afraid to love or get too close to anyone again. Her glasses are a way of concealing herself from the Kellers in hopes of avoiding getting hurt again.

Gregor’s sister, Grete, treats him with kindness and at the end, she also was the one who confront to Mr.Samsa and Mrs. Samsa that they need to get rid of the monster that is living them. “‘Father, Mother,’ said his sister, hitting the table with her hand as introduction, ‘we can’t carry on like this. Maybe
This actually leads to other part of story, where she is going to Hong Kong see her brother, on the way however was forced to get adopted. She got force adopted to a family, where they treated her like if she wasn’t human, also she couldn’t see her brother again forever until she died. For her, Jack was the only family that she had, it break her heart when Jack tried to reject everything from his mother food, culture, paper menagerie and even talking to his mother. “can you understand how it felt when you stopped talking to me and won’t let me talk to you in Chinese? I felt I was losing everything all over again”(76).
Walk Two Moons takes its time to show you that Sal's mother died whereas the poem “Missing Mama” is right to the point. One of the feelings that they both go through is not being able to go with their mothers and be with them forever. In Claudia's poem, she writes “The day that you left I just didn't know, That you were going where I couldn't go” They both feel miserable about losing their mothers. Claudia’s feelings towards her mother aren't as deep as Sal’s to her mother.
This caused her to alienate herself since her mother asked her to keep a part of herself hidden from the world by binding her and making sure no one found out she menstruated ealy (Anzaldúa 1983, 221). This will later isolate her further but ultimately lead her to reflect on the racism that surrounds her. In addition, Anzaldúa’s identity also suffer because she denied her heritage and the traditions that with it. She mentions that she felt ashamed of her mother and her loud tendencies, it is an archetype that most Hispanic mothers are loud by nature, and the fact that her lunches, or “lonches”, consisted
She also comes back to ask her mother for quilts when it had already been promised to Maggie. Dee thought Maggie can’t appreciate the heritage behind it, but their mother hopped that Maggie would use it for everyday use, exactly what Dee didn’t want. In the end of the story Maggie and her mother sits outside on the yard watching Dee drive away. Walker uses subtle clues to
Yet what Tan expressed using perfect English is always be answered. For example, the stockbroker and doctor respond to Tan requested immediately but neglect her mother’s demand. Fence was built between the native English world and Tan’s mother’s broken English world. And that is the reason why many people have the fear of studying languages
It is very difficult to think that the parents I work with do not see how others are also victims of the system. In one account, a woman “did not socialize with neighbors, usually kept her curtains closed, and generally did not allow her young daughter to play outside.” This ideology, which has been inherited from the days of Raeganomics, creates distance within the communities we work with and further isolates our clients. However I think that this propaganda worked to discourage the creation of communities and further isolate welfare recipients. When we contract with our clients, we talk a lot about their support system and community supports are really lacking in their lives.
To summarize, these two stories are comparable to each other. A pair of tickets mainly focus on Jing-mei journey as she discover information on her Chinese background where as in Jorge piece, Baltasar Espinosa is introduced to a different setting and gain more insight about the villagers and their customs. My focus for this comparative analysis is to use the elements of characterization and symbolism while elaborating on my theme. Jing- mei is a thirty six year old Chinese American embark on a voyage with her father to find meanings on her ethnicity.
As many Chinese-Americans grew up in the 1960’s, one women described it best in her multiple literary works. Bestselling, Chinse-American writer, Amy Tan in her autobiographic essay, “Fish Cheeks”, illustrates her humiliating experience at a Christmas Eve dinner at the age of fourteen. Tan’s purpose is to interpret the idea of how her mother cared for Tan deeply and wanted her to be proud of her Chinese heritage and family. She adopts a nostalgic tone in order to engage relatable thoughts and feelings in her adult readers. Even decades after the essay had been written, readers can still relate to the embarrassing situation that Tan had to face.
Despite the novel being set in a time period that happened long ago, I believe we still have a lot of relatable experiences with Wang Lung. He is someone with good morals, but from time to time he will do something immoral for personal satisfaction like when he took the gold from the man in the rich house in the south. Page 137 states, “And the fat man rose to his knees, sobbing and gibbering and feeling for the pocket of the robe, and he brought forth his yellow hands dripping with gold, and Wang Lung held out the end of his coat and received it”. I think it's almost part of human nature to do something that isn't quite morally acceptable for one's own pleasure, because nobody is perfect and it is easy to be led into temptation. Also Wang
