Reading the first couple of pages in the first chapter was interesting and deep explaining in a cellular level how our bodies work. Then again she would tease in every other pages on how the Essentircs would benefit from a lot of slips in the body. I think I would have skimmed through the book if she did not explain the success of Essentrics and what it does. Overall it was well written and how the information was written caught my eye and kept me
Her knowledge was passed by her grandmother a great teacher to her. She influenced her granddaughter in many ways, such as her informal speech/slang (PoetryFoundation 1). Giovanni uses her slang as an indication of her culture, as is seen in “Legacies” she uses this in a line, ¨I want chu to learn how to make rolls said the old women proudly.” (Applebee 418) “Legacies” is just one illustration of the connections with Giovanni's life and works.
In “Mother Tongue” by Amy Tan and “superman and me” by Sherman Alexie, both authors focus on the importance of teaching oneself. While Amy Tan conveys this subject using personal experience, Sherman Alexie expresses it by using imagery. Ultimately, both authors portray the theme as having a passion to learn and being educated can benefit a person in life. Amy Tan's essay is a personal story that tells the reader about how her mother's english was perceived as “broken” or “fractured” by everyone. Amy Tan says “But me, my mother's english is perfectly clear, perfectly natural.” In the essay Amy Tan uses personal experience to give examples about how knowing her mother's tongue helped her to talk to stockbroker for her mom and restated it everything
I believe that “I Stand Here Writing” by Nancy Summers constitutes as a literary narrative. The strongest evidence is Summers’s use of personal stories which are scattered throughout the text. She includes a couple stories about her schooling, life as a mother, and her career as a teacher. In fact, Summers uses these narratives to convey a deeper message about the skill of writing. The best example of this is when Summers expresses how she came to love the writings of Ralph Waldo Emerson and how she used Emerson’s ideas to set the tone for the rest of the passage.
Throughout the novel Antonia remains an optimistic character who always sees the glass as half full. This sense of optimism allows her to truly see and appreciate the beauty in nature and all people. She was very similar to her father in this sense, but her willingness to trust everyone leads to some of her greatest struggles. A key example of this is Larry, her fiance who abandoned and her with their child. There were rumors about Larry and his playboy nature, but Antonia choose to see the good in him and was even prepared to be married to a man who did not care as deeply for her as she believed.
all this flashback goes back to where she was a child remembering how those old times people didn't worry about her looks but her soul, what she had inside. The new world time people are more focused on people's physical appearance, this tells how silko's appearance started to matter to her. The essay Yellow Woman and the Beauty of the Spirit by Silko is written in the first person, and it is reflective. Silko uses her exposition structure that makes her experiences clear convincing and engaging to the reader, making the story more comprehensible to the reader and visualize it in their
Suddenly, someone began whispering to me. She went on to tell me that I should call her Laney because she preferred that over her full name, which was Delaney. In this moment, all of my nerves slipped away, and an enormous smile soon spread across my face. Laney had always been positive and kind to everyone at the studio; even though she was fairly shy, she always found a way to cause the people around her smile. Her infectious laugh and
She also appeals to ethos when mentioning that her mother read the Forbes report, listened to Wall Street Week, and read Shirley MacLaine’s books. Tan appeals to pathos when she stated that she is “someone who has always loved language” and is “fascinated by language in daily life.” She appeals to pathos again by stating that her mother’s language was “the language that helped shape the way I (she) saw things, expressed things, and made sense of the world.” She also appeals to pathos by describing how terms such as “broken” or “fractured” English bothered and offended her. Summary/Reflection: The use of dialogue and method of comparison are constantly used to help Tan develop and support her essay. Through the dialogue and comparison used, Tan is able to effectively display the differences in language between herself, her mother, and the rest of the world (such as the stockbroker and doctors handling the CAT scan.) Along with the use of dialogue and comparison, Tan’s essay focuses on numerous appeals to ethos and pathos, but not many appeals to logos.
As I take a step back and analyze my first year in a third world country, I do not regret one bit because it has made me humble. I do not need to have every brand new shoe wear or clothing that releases every Saturdays. I am as equal as they are as well. In certain ways, it has even taught me to restrain on certain things. I could not have the courage
I felt confident in using this book as a common source for my own research projects, and it created a wonderful starting point for every blog post I wanted to make. I ended up enjoyed this book not only because of the exquisite research, but because it shed light on a historical woman who is often over look in general history courses, yet who was such an amazing woman that she inspired millions with her voice at a time when African Americans were looked down upon as a lesser being of
