Granddaughter and Old Pig have lived together "for a long, long time," sharing their chores and eating corn and oats, until one day Old Pig knows she must settle her affairs. She returns her books to the library without borrowing any more, pays all of her bills, and takes her granddaughter on a walk so that the two of them can "feast" on a meal that has nothing to do with food. Together Old Pig and Granddaughter notice the light on the trees, taste the rain, watch the clouds. That night?the last they will spend together?they "held each other tight until morning.
In Jerry Spinelli’s novel, Maniac Magee, Spinelli describes the character Amanda Beale as passionate. When we first see Amanda, we see her lugging around a suitcase of books. She has all of her the books that she owns in that suitcase because if they were not in that suitcase they would be getting destroyed by her little siblings. Amanda is so passionate about her books, that she would carry all of them to school everyday, just so that they would stay in nice condition. Another example of Amanda being passionate is that when Jeffrey Magee asks Amanda if he can borrow one of her books, Amanda truly did not want to lend him one.
And if she truly wanted to be left alone, then she should stay inside... Every day she 'd do the same: She 'd come outside to play, and stand there, tears upon her face, too upset to run away.” They tease her, even though all she wants to do is play outside.

In the poem “The Changeling” by Judith Ortiz Cofer, I read it as she’s trying to get her father’s attention, she is acting to be someone else because she changes into her brother’s clothes, as a costume, until it’s dinner time and her mother asks her to take those clothes off, it’s then where everything is back to reality. In the poem “The Birthplace” by Cofer, she talks about her hometown and how it lacks features on the hills which will stop her from going places, she doesn’t go to churches that are full of the people who regret their wrongs, the roads just lead to other roads, and how towns are the same to other towns. In the poem “On the Island I Have Seen” by Cofer she talks about men who work hard in the sun while old men play dominoes in the shade, women in black dresses asking

“And when she breathed, something light and sad-no, not sad, exactly-something gently seemed to move in her bosom” (Mansfield 183). Miss Brill embodies the ultimate archetype of a lonely woman who constantly found herself in a fantasy world full of conversation. Her creative words in the story are the basis of her diverse individuality, but soon the gain of intuitiveness changed her outlook on the ongoing artistry she created every Sunday in the park. In “Miss Brill”, Katherine Mansfield showed the transformation from a joyful mind to a saddened heart that allowed Miss Brill to learn and see how people 's words hurt deep within.
She went inside and there was nobody near or in the house. As she went in she realized that there were three bowls of porridge one being hot, one being cold, and the last being just right.

There were three chairs, one being little, one being huge, and then the last one being just the right size for Goldilocks.
In the poem ‘Tulips' by Sylvia Plath, the theme of isolation is presented throughout the poem. The speaker accentuates how disconnected she feels from the world, however she seems to embrace her isolation; it is something that she would prefer to clutch onto. The only problem she seems to have is the constant reminder that actually, in fact, she is not alone. Plath uses the imagery of tulips, which is constantly repeated throughout the poem as a symbol of isolation. The tulips can be seen to represent the love and concern that other people have for the speaker, for example her family, and that these people are there for her and that she is not alone.
