This wall stands asa therapeutic tool that compensatesfor her dead sister’s loss. Through the wailingwall, May is able to report her inner traumas. This act recalls Morison’s protagonist, Florens, who manages to recover from her past traumas through writing her own story on both the floor and the wall. The critic HsiebYi- Jo refers to this as “The redemptive power of writing” (2), by which Morrison’s protagonist in A Mercy confronts her unfortunate past within the white society through relying on the power of writing. As it is mentioned in Kidd’s novel, the wailing wall has its origins in the Jewish tradition, being a place for healing, people withdraw their pains into papers as a kind of prayer (120).
Mandy Len Catron, a writer and English teacher, tells about the ways how we express the feeling of love in words. Relating on the personal experience and making special research in order to start writing the books on romantic stories, she figured out people tend to use various metaphors, special language constructions and linguistic specificities to express the feeling of love. The speaker highlights that the way people express love crucially reflects the basis of their love relationships experience. She speculates on the topic whether the difference between the mental illness and love serotonin tests are distinguishable. The speakers’ speech takes place on the scene of independent event TEDxSFU.
Jane Yolen primarily uses the effective appeal of storytelling to discuss the importance of remembering the Holocaust as it provides a vivid sense of familiarity and nostalgia. By consistently mentioning Gemma’s accounts of sharing her fairy tale story of Briar Rose and the intentional attention to detail, Yolen highlights the strong intimacy associated with traditional storytelling and its power to create powerful connections. As Gemma began telling her story in the beginning of the novel, “the sisters nodded and stepped back a pace each, as if the story demanded their grandmother’s face, not just her scent” (Yolen 21). The way Gemma tells her stories to her granddaughters implies that there is a very traditional, intimate story time setting. In this way, storytelling allows not only for emotional intimacy, but physical intimacy as well.
During the summer vacation, I gladly came across “Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence” and "War Horse"; two inspiring, and heart warming books. Both managing to prove that hope and resilience can get you through the obstacles and struggles that you face in life. Despite the great portrayal of characters and the exquisite delivery of themes by both authors, I have managed to conclude that “Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence" was the highlight of my summer reading. “Follow the Rabbit Proof Fence” is a unique book that comprises real life events, with a sense of imagination that fills up the missing pieces in order for the book to flow. The plot follows three young girls and their inspiring journey as they embark on a 1500 mile trek to find love and freedom after they are taken away from their families.
Appreciation is one of the important thought that goes through the story. Louise Erdrich is plainly appreciative for what her mom has given her: Saving her own life to permit her later to manage another youngster; life itself through birth; and life once more, through her salvage from the flame. It is her appreciation that pulls Louise Erdrich home to peruse books to her mom, "to peruse so everyone can hear, to peruse long into the dull in the event that I should, to peruse throughout the night." Although it is inferred that her arrival comes at a pivotal crossroads in her own life (suggested by her reference to her fizzled life), it is an uncommon youngster to demonstrate a guardian such generous appreciation. She comes back to satisfy the capacity that her dad started in the clinic, that of perusing so anyone might hear.
Practically everybody in literature has someone in their world that influences who they are and how they view the world. One of the best examples of a mentor in literature takes place in To Kill A Mockingbird by Harper Lee. In this story, Scout, a young girl growing up in 1960’s Alabama, learns a lot about herself and her world from her father, Atticus, Miss Maudie Atkinson, her neighbor, and her family's housekeeper, Calpurnia. These three people teach Scout about compassion, understanding others, as well as how to compose herself in front of others. These mentors guide Scout through her childhood and teach her valuable lessons about how to live a good life.
Being dyslexic, Goldberg explains how expressing herself through artistic means was always something she tried first. It was a way of communication that actually felt comfortable because she took pride in her skills. Where reading took a long time, Goldberg could describe or draw her feelings effortlessly. She describes it as a way to present herself where she actually feels normal. Countless children experience a disability that halts them from feeling comfortable in their daily life.
Dorothy Miller Richardson (1873-1957), was obliged to earn her living from an early age, first as governess, then as secretary, translator, and journalist. She wrote a highly autobiographical novel entitled Pilgrimage which was published in sequence. Its first sequence was published in 1915 as Pointed Roofs and the last was published posthumously in 1967 as March Moonlight. She was a pioneer of the stream of consciousness technique. Virginia Woolf credited her with inventing ‘the psychological sentence of the feminist gender.’ Hilda Doolittle (1886-1961) more known as H. D., was the leading member of the Imagist movement.
Some of my earliest memories are of my mother reading story books to me. I was enthralled by captivating tales of knights rescuing princesses. I was taken to worlds where caterpillars reign supreme as they eat their way to becoming a butterfly. This was the moment I fell in love with literature, a love that would follow me for the rest of my life. You would think because of this I learned to read early.
