In the line mentioned, Christie made it important to create the vicious tone. This is a side of Miss Blacklock that has never been seen before. In the previous chapters, “Letty” does a great job of keeping her composure, but now the audience is seeing the wicked side to her and everything is being pieced together. This part of the chapter is so important because it truly solidifies Christie’s lesson of not always being too trusting in people. The Letitia Blacklock that the reader and characters thought they knew throughout the novel was actually not even Letitia.
Beatrice is the main character, in the book Insurgent Series by Veronica Roth, Beatrice was trying to figure out how she was going to confess what she has done. Beatrice is Divergent, she has different traits and emotions compared to other people in the society. She was in Candor, a courtroom where she can let her anger out and no one can judge her for what she has done, especially from the ones she loves. When the attention was pointed to her, she was scared to tell the full story about what was bothering her. Beatrice thought to herself, “Safe places, where confessing that I shot one of my best friends would be easy, where I would not be afraid of the way that Tobias will look at me when he finds out what I did.” This quote shows that people shouldn’t hold secrets in, but to let it out even how bad the secret is.
Like the title suggests, there is a lesson learned at the end of Bambara’s story but Sylvia has a hard time admitting she learned anything. When asked about what they’ve learned, Sylvia “[walks] away and Sugar has to run to catch up”(Bambara 6). Since Sylvia is the narrator, readers are aware of her thoughts and know Sylvia has indeed learned a lesson. This is clear when Sylvia talks about the importance of $35 to her family compared to the people who shop at FAO. Instead, Sylvia stays silent when asked, not wanting Miss Moore to know she has learned something.
Writer Agatha Christie, said of the connection between a mother and her child, “A mother’s love for her child is like nothing else in the world. It knows no law, no shame, it dares allhthings0and smashes down apologetically all that stands in its path.” Beloved by Toni Morrison debriefs the same idea; eventually showing that the mother’s compliant-ness to protect her child at all costs often endan- gering her own life. “ Making the decision to have a chid is momentous. It is to decide forever to have your heart go walking around outside your body.” - Unknown Toni Morrison’s Beloved took it’s form, from a 19th century newspaper article that she read while doing some research in 1974. The article was about a runaway slave named Margaret Garner, who had escaped with her four small children in 1856 from
That is proven through a quote from the book, “Write about what disturbs you, particularly if it bothers no one else” (Stockett 83). This quote wasn’t said by Skeeter herself, but it was advice from Mrs. Stein to write about what bothers her. This quote proves that she cares about the maids, because she is bothered by how they are treated. It is through her compassion for the colored maids and her father’s colored field hands that she feels the need to sit down and write the book. Not only, does the book display Skeeter’s love and compassion, but it brings out Aibileen’s and Minny’s.
In the book, Maniac Magee, Jerry Spinelli uses descriptive details, dialogue, actions, and thoughts to develop one of the main characters, Amanda Beale. Jerry Spinelli used descriptive dialogue because he made Amanda a very kind, gentle, reliable, and responsible young women. In the text i can tell she is kind because the book clearly stated “She stopped, turned. "Ohhhh," she squeaked. She tore a book from the suitcase, hurled it at him - "Here!"
In both of “Polly Sits Tight” and “Among the Hidden” Ethel M.

So when the teacher asked a question that no one else could answer everyone knew Polly knew the answer. However, Polly left her hand down.
It is brilliantly thought out, as a woman tries to write a story, she is faced with a challenge when the “i” is broken on her word processor. As the reader progresses through this story, they begin to realize that Shields herself never uses an “i”. Moreover, I was able to identify the struggle in word choice, with consideration to, inserting words that do not necessarily fit. She goes on to drag out sentences, creating tangents based on little to no relatedness to the progression of the story; nonetheless, I found the absence of “i” rather clever. Shields incorporated repetition as a literary device, this is shown through the continually used passage “A woman sat down-” The repetition was the last line of in the story, yet this time adding the words “and wrote”.

Amanda’s fixation with wanting to keep her life going like the past leads to her son leaving.
"I am world trapped in a person." I did not like reading until I came across a novel called The Secret History by Donna Tartt. Tartt shows the dangers of romanticising people and the past. She creates this ideology that no matter how good, everybody is bad. Tartt uses her characters to portray how literature does not shy away from the truth.
Both of these situations involve understanding of someone who has been unfairly treated. Skeeter who was attempting to write a novel with the help of the maids, had to put herself in their shoes and experience what they felt. Near the end of To Kill A Mockingbird, Scout’s fear of Boo Radley had ended and she took the time to look at things from Boo’s point of
