In a simile, she compares gardening to “boxing… The wins versus the losses” (Hudes 16). Through this comparison, Hudes conveys Ginny’s deep desire for a sense of control and success in her life. This desire is fed by the memory of her father, who was only bearable when he was gardening. Specifically, the assertion of this desire for control is evident as she recalls that her father “was a mean bastard…” but “became a saint if you put a flower in his hand” (Hudes 15). From those experiences of dealing with her father, a psychological analogy between nature and peace was instilled in Ginny’s mind at a young age, and is what she relies on as an adult to handle her emotional trauma.

“Strawberry Springs” – Vivid Against “A Rose for Emily” When the term “Strawberry Spring” comes to mind, one assumes that it means something pleasant, and almost sweet sounding to the ear. Yet for Stephen King’s short story, “Strawberry Spring,” the phrase becomes a whole different meaning. Dressed in murder and painted with the vivid colors of narration, the short story reflects upon the deception of a false spring in the early beginnings of March 1968.

In her book Society in America she states that “the choice is to be either ill-educated, passive, and subservient, or well-educated, vigorous, and free only upon sufferance” (Martineau, 1837). At the Lake District house she discovers the balance between these two. “She holds the pen and the needle simultaneously” (Postlethwaite, 1989).
Telemachus, Odysseus’ son, tells all the suitor that it is time to quit the games and sit down for supper,”At this reminder/ they all broke up their games, and trailed away/ into the gracious, timbered hall. There, first/ they dropped their cloaks on chairs; then came their ritual:/putting great rams and fat goats to the knife-”(XVII.223-227.). All the suitors that have been living in Odysseus home for many years, all act as if they have made it their new home. Greek hospitality is important because if not, all these men would not feel as if Ithaca was their home, let alone act so natural in someone else's house. Odysseus is disguised as a beggar in his own house, and Penelope, Odysseus’ wife, tells her maids what to do for him, ”Maids, maids, come was him, make a bed for him,/bedstead and colored rugs and coverlets/ to let him lie warm into the gold of Dawn”(XIX.375-376.).
She sat to dinner in Reverend Parris’ house tonight, and without word nor warnin’ she falls to the floor. Like a struck beast, he says, and screamed a scream that bull would weep to hear. And he goes to save her, and stuck two inches in the flesh of her belly, he draw a needle out. And demandin’ of her how she come to be stabbed she testify it were your wife’s familiar spirit pushed it in “(860). It turns out that Abigail was sitting next to Mary in court, as Mary was making the poppet and had stuck the needle in it for safekeeping, which could have given Abigail the idea to throw the fit at dinner and accuse Elizabeth.

They would check houses, attic, sheds, pantries and cellars. People begged their neighbors for food scraps. People ate “cheap cornmeal, wheat chaff, dried nettle leaves and other weeds” (“Holodomor: Memories of Ukraine 's silent massacre,” 2013). Miss Karpenko, a Holodomor survivor, described the situation that she was in during this man-made famine.

My dad took their orders for drinks, and my mother led everyone to the patio for finger foods and conversation. When she became aware that John, Luc, and my father were trading war stories, she led the guests to the dining room table.

However, this dependence dissolves through a combination of survival skills and personal development she learns from Ruby. As soon as Ruby meets Ada, she declares that she has “never hired out as hand or servant” and demanded equality between the two women. Emotionally, Ada becomes much more independent when she starts living with Ruby; with Ruby’s candid attitude, Ada learns the importance in fending for oneself both on the farm and around others. Ruby’s personality is emulated throughout the next few months, and becomes much more comfortable confronting others in both As the two began managing the farm, “Ruby seemed to aim Ada [to]...the rudeness of eating [and] of living” rather than “[paying] someone to grow for them” (81). While proving to originally tire out Ada, Ruby’s harsh and hardened lifestyle shape Ada into a self-sufficient woman.
