Sandra was able to express Esperanzas rollercoaster of emotions through literary devices so we could have a better understanding. Authors use Sandra’s method as well, to give us those realistic feelings associated with literary devices to help us make sense of what they’re writing. The central idea in The House on Mango Street is that Esperanza was just struggling for self-definition. This central idea was supported by Esperanza’s desire for a new name, Sire’s influence on her, and wrapping up her personality.I believe we can all learn from this book and realize that everyone has a phase like this, it might be difficult figuring out who you are. Although, once you do figure it out, never forget who you really were, Esperanza promised to never forget who she once
Woman Hollering Creek by Sandra Cisneros was published in 1991. Cisneros is most well known for her short story The House on Mango Street. She often writes about “the memories that will not let her sleep at night”. She follows the themes of sexism, poverty, racism, double standards, Mexican culture, followed by Spanish phrases wedged into her work. She enjoys writing about romance, domestic settings, the social status of women, and especially her culture.
Not being able to fully grasp who’s perspective I’m reading this from, but then realized this story is about her. I would like to believe that she wrote this almost like a diary or journal about her struggling relationship. To really understand, people might have to sympathize with the author because many people go through different situations in life. For example this story was her in a relationship with friends involved trying to help. Of course at times individuals they would like to believe their judgment is better than people trying to help.
Literary Analysis for “Two Kinds” and “Rice and Rose Bowl Blues” (Revised Final Draft) In popular culture, we can always find different themes that the author or creator wants to convey in their work for the audience, a common one is following your heart. It is very important to be able to identify and analyze what message the author wants us to learn. In literature, themes are essential, because they give meaning to the story and enrich the content. The theme can be found through multiple literary devices, but in the case of ‘Two Kinds’ by Amy Tan and ‘Rice and Rose Bowl Blues’ by Diane Mei Lin Mark, two stories about girls breaking parental stereotypes, we see it through characterization. Characterization is very important because it shows us little clues of a character that eventually make up a bigger picture.
By doing so the reader is allowed to see both Aylmer's and Georgina's thoughts. Instead of accepting her imperfection he devotes his life to find a was to remove the birthmark from her face. By moralizing the entire story, the reader misses out on the actual thoughts and feelings of how Aylmer felt about Georgina's death. Hawthorne used this to teach the reader a lesson about the strive for perfection. American modern short stories are often written by passionate narrators who often included their own opinions into the point of view, it is believed that Hawthorne did just that.
In the literature Rabbit Ears by Maggie De Vries it’s shown that the theme of the book is prostitution. “Prostitution is the practice or occupation of engaging in sexual activity with someone for payment.” In the next paragraphs I will discuss an article and music that also deals with this topic. The major theme presented in Rabbit Ears is prostitution. Kaya one of the main characters just went through her father passing away from cancer, Kaya dealt with it a different way. Kaya separated herself from her family and went into the prostitution field.”The women is wearing a short skirt, heels and a tank top, with a ratty sweater overtop.”(De Vries 69) The author is implying that this lady is a prostitute.
In Eugenia Collier's short story “Marigolds”, the author uses flashback and juxtaposition to create the narrator's voice and present a particular point of view. The narrator uses flashback to show her memories and feelings. The narrator shows in paragraph 1, when she states “ memory is an abstract painting-it does not present things as they are, but rather as they feel.” The use of flashback is to show how her childhood. This helps the narrator's past that the tie of her life she regretted and learned from her mistakes to show she s more understanding. Also, the narrator uses juxtaposition to show her innocence & compassion.
Allegories are used for many reasons, such as debating about politics, or create moral meanings, but what intrigues me is that authors are able to express their ideas on controversies going on in the world with their stories, at the same time, it give a better context to the story, and give a peek of how it would feel if the reader was in the situation, just with an allegory. Kate Chopin, most assumedly, was a supporter of the feminist movement, and she showed her support of the women’s movement through her allegories, for example her short story “The Story of an Hour.” "Story of an Hour” starts out with Richard, Brently Mallard’s friend, came home with terrible news that Louise Mallard’s husband, Brently Mallard died in a train accident.
Telling the story from her point of view allows Sister to influence her audience by calling out the reader and belittling Stella-Rondo. However, the reader must also note Sister’s altered state of mind which may contribute to an unreliable retelling of the story. Although the first-person point of view is used throughout the majority of the story, Welty occasionally used second-person.
In the title, “Being Brought” refers to Wheatley being taken against her will. She wrote this title to inform her audience on the background information, like where she was from and taken to, otherwise might not have been understood from the poem. She uses the passive voice to be different from what would be spoken normally in conversation. I think she tried to put a lot of thought into her poems to help the audience focus. 5.
