People say “the best things in life come free”, and I think this is a good way of explaining a child. Now I am not saying that children are free of costs, because they are not, but any small gestures a child does can go a long way in a mothers heart. In the poem it states how when the boy gave his mother the lanyard that she basically accepted it as a gift of repayment: “I was as sure as a boy could be that this useless, worthless thing I wove out of boredom would be enough to make us even” (Collins
She does not know I will turn out bad. (28-31) The speaker recalls when her father was having an affair and its effect it had on her mother. Her mother was obviously upset, but the speaker states that time healed her pain. Throughout the poem, the speaker’s mother seems to be upset. The poems tone shifts when the speaker begins to talk about themselves.
This is all from “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto. The overall idea is love, the opinion that one may have is that one should always have love for someone to be happy and the 3 literary elements that may support one’s topic and opinion is symbols, setting, and characterization. First, symbols in “Growing Up” written by Gary Soto supports the theme that one shouldn’t take anger out on the people they love because something could happen at any time and they will regret what they said. The symbol “garden hose” shows that Maria is upset with her father for not wanting her to stay home. She takes anger out on her father, but she realizes after they leave there has been a horrible accident and so she starts to regret not saying goodbye to her father.
“To My Dear and Loving Husband” written by Anne Bradstreet expressed her affection and unconditional love for her husband. This poem was written when her husband was away on business trip to England. Bradstreet put her feeling and how profoundly she misses him in every sentences of the poem. She values their love more than any earthly riches and views that as a sign of spiritual union and salvation, rather than as something profane or lowly. Unlike other contemporary Puritan women writers, Bradstreet focuses on how she rejoices and appreciates her ordinary life instead of religious conversion.
“Me and Ruth done made some sacrifices for you – why can’t you do something for the family?” (Hansberry 1.1.118). The Younger family has grown up without much and when the father dies, he leaves an inheritance that can get the family into a comfortable living position. The only problem is that they all want to use the money for different reasons. Each character wants to make their own dreams come true. They do not want to sacrifice their own dreams to please the others.
In the poem, money is a reference to time. She seems to be asking her father for his time even though he has no more to give. She has previously been neglected by her father and she feels that she deserved more of his time. It becomes obvious that the speaker has yearned for a relationship with her father for a long time when she says, “i wish you were rich so i could take it all”(line 10). She longs for some time with her father and wishes that he had more time so she could have a relationship with him.
This incident shows the reader that she wants to be taken seriously by her colleagues. It also displays that Hilly deeply treasures her reputation because of her reaction towards the situation. On the other hand, Aunt Alexandra has also shown the reader signs that she values her family’s reputation. In chapter 23 of To Kill a Mockingbird, Aunt Alexandra did not allow Scout to play with Walter Cunningham because of his poor background. She said, “Because-he-is-trash, that’s why you can’t play with him.
This can be connected to the narrator by her longing for John to love her deeper by understanding her emotionally, not just psychically. With a bit of Gilman's background, it is expressed that she grew up with a mother who was not nurturing, which Gilman and the narrator longs for. John is much like Gilman's mother by not loving her in a nurturing way as well. This is exhibited through his constant efforts of infantilizing her throughout “The Yellow Wallpaper. Veeder also articulated that the narrator sought marriage to fill the void that her mother left.
Can one person make a difference in your lifestyle or moral choices? Well in the story "Thank You, M'am" it does, the little boy in the story does something that he would of never have done by himself but before the act finishes a woman stops the child and converses with the child and changes the boy's life style and morality completely. Indicating that one person can make multiple differences on their life due to the acts and clarity they show to the person in distress. In the poem named "Mother to son" a mother refers her life as not being a "Crystal Stair" and shows her child that even if life puts you down you get up on your feet and continue trying to make your own life better and more comfortable to be apart. One person can make a difference in another person's life due to them really caring about the character changing their characteristics, showing interest and being there for the character even through some of the hardest times.
Langston Hughes Use of Extended Metaphor and Imagery Not all of us choose to keep climbing through life’s obstacles. Yet some choose to go through life’s discomforts; like the diligent mother in Langston Hughes poem, “Mother to Son.” She addresses the son in a colloquial monologue about her life’s hurdles and hardships by never giving up; “For I’se still goin’, honey,” (18). The mother also persuades her son to not give up; “So boy, don’t you turn back.” (14) “Mother to Son” uses extended metaphor and imagery to reveal the mother’s persistency and determination to her son, explaining all of her life’s anguished situations.
At the end of The Erlking, Bynum stated that her version revolved a parent’s anxiety instead of a child’s one. I believe she executed that, especially since Ondine doesn’t seem scare or concern by the man; Kate holds most of the worry in this story. However, I also think that the poem has elements of parental anxiety. My notion deals with the father ignoring his child. I took him ignoring his child as a way of him worrying some much he doesn’t pay mind to his child until his child
I will always fight for what I believe in, even if I’m wrong; and because I am very out spoken that has helped me too. I never give up, no matter how tough things will get. I am also very fearless, and the fact that I am very outspoken helps me. I will always stand my ground and I will never let anyone walk all over me. My mom and I are both courageous
Dreamers are meant to dream, and thinkers are meant to live practical lives. In the story, Ashleigh (Ashes) is the only child of a divorced couple. The father was a dreamer and the mother was a level headed woman who made practical decisions. The father was in need of $200 in order to be set for life, but the only way to get it was by taking it from her mom unknowingly. Ashes took the $200 from the teapot because she loved her dad more, it would have been paid back in a day, and it would set her dad on the path to success.
