Moreover, his control over the her thoughts is shown she neglects what she is doing unknowingly immersing herself in thoughts of him, as ‘words began to hide amongst themselves on the page’ and she ‘forgot about her books’. The influence of his arrival is further depicted in her actions as ‘she’s been studying some of Cecil Valance’s poem’ in an attempt to impress him. This desire to make an impression on him is reaffirmed in chapter 6, as Daphne ‘came back down in her mother’s crimson shawl’, and the reader is aware that she is not supposed to do that as the housemaid glance at her in a ‘critical way’.

During Jem’s reading session, Mrs. Dubose falls into a state with “cords of saliva” collecting on her lips while her head rocked slowly “from side to side” (123). Her pain consumed so much of her that she could not even respond to simple questions like “Mrs. Dubose, are you alright?” (123).

She is left assuming the role of a traditional wife; cleaning the house, stocking the fridge, and taking care of her daughter. Co-parenting is not only hard for the woman in Edelman’s instance, but is also difficult for the husband in Eric Bartels’ “My Problem with Her Anger.” Bartels examines the scrutiny he is under from his wife for performing seemingly easy tasks incorrectly.

The unusual image of “-humming in her eyes-” suggests a mother’s lullaby. The use of the dashes breaks the poem’s rhythm, bringing out the mother’s emotion. It is tragic that she can’t bring herself to sing but wants him to rest peacefully. The poet compares this mother to other mothers in the refugee camp to amplify her love for her child and therefore the suffering she has to go through while watching him die.
¨In this way (Harriet) worked, day after day, till late at night; then she went home to her little cabin, and make about fifty pies, a great quantity of gingerbread, and two casks of root beer¨(Doc D). This explains why it is the second greatest achievement because she didn´t work as long as she did as the first greatest achievement. Harriet Tubman's number one greatest achievement was being a caretaker from after the war until her death in 1913(48 years). The focus of Harriet's life was to help those in need(Doc E). This explains that though she didn't have the necessities for everything she still helped because that's how she was.
