A quote the proves this is on page 222 and it states “ on the far side of the lawn i saw the backs of two people, an older woman and a younger man… On the bench was Phoebe's mother and she was kissing the lunatic.” This causes Phoebe to grow internally because normally phoebe runs away from her problems, but this time Phoebe did not she stayed put and faced reality. Another quote that proves my statement is on page 223 it states “Phoebe was stunned and angry, but she was braver than I was she could watch, but I could not.” These quotes show how phoebe grew by showing that phoebe did not run away even Sal ran away of the sight of Phoebe's mother and the lunatic together it shows phoebe has become braver in all her
The first time I heard about the great Frida Kahlo was in my AP Spanish class during my Sophomore year of high school. Her unibrow and enigmatic look piqued my interest before her paintings did. “The Mexican portrait painter was truly an influential artist who combined traditional themes with a contemporary style and also helped to promote the role of women in the art world” (kahlo.org). I researched about the artist and learned she lived a very painful and turbulent life. Kahlo’s works are often a reflection of her experiences as a woman.
The origins of her resentment of social ideas on race and sex came from her early youth Alabama, in the 1940s and 50s a suffering time for blacks in southern lifestyles.

When writing, “The Legend of Sleepy Hollow” I fashioned the character, Ichabod Crane, to tell my version of the famous legend of the “headless horseman.” Making Ichabod a school teacher in pursuit of the affection of a beautiful woman, gave a realistic perspective to one of my favorite legends of Sleepy Hollow, New York. I also wanted to reiterate that folklore has its place and that we mustn’t be overcome with superstition as does Ichabod. Their purpose is solely for amusement and occasionally impart wisdom. I wanted to write about how incorrectly distinguishing fact from fiction. Superstitions are of no excuse as to how one should act, but to rather be driven my ethical standards.
Introduction William Faulkner is one of the eminent southern writer and the winner of the Nobel Prize in 1949. He is skillful in his “ stream of consciousness” and his Gothic style in his numerous short stories and novels. By applying Gothic techniques to his creation, he expresses his deep emotion toward his spiritual home, the American south, where he draws nutrition for almost all his writings.

In Henderson the Rain King Henderson tells his first wife, Frances that he wants to become a doctor and she just laughs at him. In A Raisin in the Sun Walter has a business idea that he thinks will make him a lot of money but no one believes that he could or should do it. My final comparison is in Fahrenheit 451. Faber and Dahfu are alike because in Henderson the Rain King Dafu helps and talks with Henderson about the things he is struggling with. In Fahrenheit 451 Faber helps Montag with understanding why they burn books and what are in the books.

We can make the analysis that since that he is so controlling of her, that he is the only man she really knew.
