Tanner goes on to describe how Arnow sets her stories and uses distinct American concepts of land and agriculture. I agree because according to what I’ve read, Arnow comes from Kentucky, and is familiar with the themes and land she is writing about. “ The Mountain Path was written from Arnows own life experiences as a school teacher.” (Goodreads summary) It supports my point because if she based her story on her life, she obviously knows her own life facts. In a taped interview with Mimi Conway, Mimi asks, “ Now when you went to teach in Pulaski County, what was the name of the actual place?” Arnow replies with, “ Well they called it Possum Trot School. I’ve forgotten if it had a better name.” This interview is proof her stories have real life experience in them.
Through analyzing the stories about their lives’ hardships and experiences, it is revealed that Suyuan’s American Dream is achieved by Jing-mei by going back to her own country, retrieving her two sisters, and makes the family whole again.

Two, a full belly, and three, a good night's rest.” From this quote the reader can take that Matilda is gathering knowledge from her family to better herself in the future. On page 85, Anderson states from Matilda's viewpoint, “Old soldiers trick. Find a willow tree and you’ll discover water nearby.” This quote shows that Matilda can not only take in knowledge but use the helpful tricks she learned from family to help in tough situations. Throughout Fever 1793, Matilda becomes independent and mature when she uses knowledge from Mother, Grandfather, and Eliza to survive. Overall, the theme independence and maturity best fits this book, as we can see the change in Matilda.
The narrator is a woman embarking on a career as a governess. She vividly described what she did before she would be leaving, which helps to understand that she is excited to leave. For example, she says “I now busied myself in preparations: the fortnight passed rapidly.” The narrator made sure she was busy so that the time would pass quicker, since she was so happy to embark. She also states “I had brushed my black stuff travelling-dress, prepared my bonnet, gloves, and muff; sought in all my drawers to see that no article was left behind; and now having nothing more to do, I sat down and tried to rest.” This statement describes, in great detail, what she did to prepare to leave. You can clearly tell that she is excited by the way she is telling her preparations.
Bingley all display how society during the Romantic Era perceived the role of women to be. Jane Austen wrote Pride and Prejudice to not only narrate the story of two people growing to love one another, but to also present what it was like for her, a woman, to live during her time period. Mrs. Bennet dedicated her life to getting all of her daughters married and out of the house, she mentions that it was her only wish in the beginning of the novel. As a woman, she should understand why Elizabeth does
Everyday Use is written in first person point of view. The narrator is Mama, so everything that is written from her point of view. This perspective allows the readers to see some of Mama’s inner thoughts and personal commentary about that is happening. An example of this is, “I didn’t want to bring up how I had offered Dee (Wangero) a quilt when she went away to college. Then she has told me they were old-fashioned, out of style,” (490).
The feather is covering one of her eyes to convey that she is blinded by this dream of one day settling down in one place and bringing the whole family together. “Make a wish, Tom, make a wish.” This line is significant as it shows that she had hoped for a better life and wanted fate to play in her favour to let them settle their roots this time. The statements reply is ambiguous and all that we as the audience know is that she doesn’t want to be in this alone anymore. Yet we know that they end up moving again
Offred is thinking this after Serena Joy has told her she may give Offred a picture of her child. For the first 237 pages Offred is craving knowledge, just some hint of life of either her friends or family. She hangs onto the hope she will never see Luke hanging on “the wall,” while asking handmaid’s for any information heard on Moira, the only handmaid to escape the aunts grasps. Then to learn her commander 's wife is withholding very dear evidence from Offred infuriates her.

The age long plot of the damsel in distress, only to be rescued by her knight in shining armor. Romance can be found throughout American history as well.

Thirdly, it’s also implied that her main priority in life is to get married and that any other ambitions should be put to one side until that day. Another part of the play that represents ideas relating to marriage and motherhood is after Lucy has had her head shaved during her post-seduction ‘illness’, she tells Florrie, “Said he loved it long and loose and me looking a little like a school girl”. When Florrie asks whom she is referring to, Lucy replies, “Daddy…Arthur!....Someone…? I forget.” Lochhead has cleverly purposefully made it so Lucy mixes up the identities of Lucy’s father and groom-to-be to emphasise the
