Fey also uses verbal irony to describe her unhealthy self. She says “I took personal inventory of all my healthy body parts for which I am grateful: wide German hips that look like somebody wrapped Pillsbury dough around a case of soda” (24). Fey is conveying an expression that is obviously opposite of what she means. Wide set hips are not considered healthy, if you women have attended any recent doctor appointments concerning health, and physician would inform you of that. Previously to this chapter Fey describes a flashback of being skinny to contradict her previous point, as well to makes efforts to show her audience it doesn’t matter your size, you just need to embrace yourself and find your true beauty and accept it.

When the woman took the boy to her house to wash him and feed him she trusted the respect they had created. She let the boy go and he reacted well, “Roger looked at the door-looked at the woman-looked at the door- and went to the sink,” knowing now that the woman was just wanting to help. By the end of their time together the boy understood how the woman had helped him, “The boy wanted to say something else other than ‘Thank you, m’am’ to Mrs. Luella Bates.” Their interaction show how the characters changed throughout the story and helps us to understand and connect to the characters better. Characterization was shown through physical description, personal feelings, and showing the interaction between the boy and woman in the short story “Thank You Ma’am” by langston hughes.

Jane also forgives Mr. Rochester for his deception and decides to return to him, all before knowing about the fire and Bertha Mason’s death. Just as Jesus preached to his disciples to forgive and live a pure life.

Put me down easy, Janie, Ah’m a cracked plate” (Hurston 20).

In the short story, “Thank You, M’am” by Langston Hughes, Roger was a poor, lonely boy who tried to snatch a woman’s purse, but the woman’s actions cause Roger to become thankful. After Roger tried to take the purse the woman took him home and told him to wash his face “...Ain’t you got nobody home to tell you to wash your face?’ ‘No’m.’ said the boy” (Hughes 110).

He wishes to express his gratitude in some way; he wanted this woman to trust him “....He did not trust the woman not to trust him”(Hughes 112).
They will hear comments like ,“ a lot of men either say that it should be done behind closed doors or covered up.” Some will use the excuse, “ as a man, it makes me feel bad to see women half naked when I have a girlfriend” ( “Can’t they wait…”). As much as people would believe that breastfeeding in public is “disgusting”, there’s nothing illegal about it. “A new state law established a mother’s right to breastfeed her child wherever

The death of Homer Baron serves as a perfect example of that statement. The second thing the gray strand of hair represents is wisdom and respect.

Beth could create safety for her and Conrad to be able to have open and honest discussions about their feelings. By talking with others she would stop withdrawing and avoiding her feelings. Calvin uses large amounts of silence in the beginning of the film, but turns to more violence towards the end.

In another scene, the scene between Lennie and Curley 's wife shortly before her death, the lighting again played an important role in the way she is perceived. The lighting was soft and warm, making her seem motherly and kind. Another way the film differed from the movie and made Curley 's wife appear more compassionate was the cutting of the scene where she was so glaringly racist and rude to Crooks, Lennie and Candy. Although the director kept some of the content of this conversation, he cut out the lines that would give a bad impression of her to those watching. Overall, the director puts his own spin on the story, making Curley 's wife less vulgar and insensitive and adding romance and tenderness into the story.
In the midst of things after Curley’s wife had died Candy had stayed behind and scolded at her “You done it, di’n’t you? I s’pose you’re glad. Ever’body knowed you’d mess things up. You wasn’t no good. You ain’t no good now, you lousy tart”(95) Candy then goes on about how he “…could of hoed in the garden and washed dishes for them guys” (96) In this scene, Steinbeck exposes that Curley’s wife actually possessed more power in death rather than in life.
This is done through her dialogue as evident by her speech to her med student about how their patients feel, “’That woman in there knows that she no longer needs to accommodate her breasts when hugging friends, carrying groceries, or feeding a child. Her scars and the sympathetic look in her husband’s eyes will only cement those facts. Some of us know what it’s like to lose their entire world in an afternoon’” (Garvin, 7). A reader can really get the sense of just what kind of pain she is in and can empathize with her. Garvin shows throughout the story just how Lucy feels in her
