Therefore, she turned to music and found out that music allows her to be herself as she sings from her heart and not anything else. She then decided to write this song in favor of sharing her experiences with the readers.(Nzherald.) In “This Is Me”, Keala Settle uses her own experience of bullying to raise awareness about being true to oneself. She communicates this using the three literary devices, metaphor, abstract imagery, and personification. Metaphor is used to help the writer relate to the way Keala conquer her fear.Keala utilizes abstract imagery as it simply draws in reader better because they are able to visualize the situations as ideas were given to
Being exiled by society, she then has the opportunity to fully come into her own. She is able to reflect on her individual views vs. society’s views. She can lean on herself and successfully support herself and her daughter in her young age. Lastly she doesn’t take more than need despite that she is very able to. Hawthorne illustrated a character that was complex, and the reader can watch her transcend over obstacles put in front of her throughout the
I paragraph three, Morris lists our many instances that outline people’s excessive desire for things. These examples that author uses can immediately connect with the audience; the audience can identify the things that they have done themselves. This evokes them to think that maybe there is a problem with their passion for collecting things. At this point, Morris further convinces the audience with another example/ Morris points out how her friend manages to keep “a spotless house and a soul serene” just by giving away things that she does not “imperatively need”. This particular instance shows the readers that by being free of the control of physical objects, they can easily lead a much simpler life.
Aside from a few words, her speech was very easy to understand.For example when she states, “knows the parameters of a happy life when all it knows is the homogenization of human experience.”(299). Terms like “homogenization” cause the speech to become harder to read because unless the audience knows what the term means there is a disconnect between speaker and audience. Throughout the speech, Quindlen’s tone remained very playful and joyful. To connect with her audience, she had to approach the situation in a manner that connects with her audience. In the text she states “give up the backpack.
She becomes a little bit vulnerable. And then, she shares a real smile with Gretchen. She says, “We stand there with this big smile of respect between us.” As the story ends, Squeaky learns that by opening yourself up and becoming a little vulnerable, you have the chance at making friends and getting respect—which is what she really wanted anyway. In “Raymond’s Run,” we watch as Squeaky learns to open up and care more for others as if they were her. The theme is “ The Golden Rule” because of the characters Raymond, Mary Loiuse, and Squeaky herself.
The theme that the author was trying to convey in “Bliss at the Burger Bar” was effective leadership. Bliss really knows how to lead her crew at the Burger Bar, and her effective style of leadership was shown in many parts of the short story. For example, when one of her employees, Hannah, was hurt after Milo hit her, she hit the ground running with controlling the situation. She comforted her without getting too much in her space and went out of her way to give Hannah a ride home. She also offered Hannah advice (go to the hospital, press charges against Milo) and even though Hannah declined these opinions, she didn’t force her to do anything she didn’t want to do, and she offered her time off to recover from the situation, which is exactly
By doing so she lead the way for many female writers and encouraged them to write and make a name for themselves. “O Pioneers!” has many examples of naturalistic thinking throughout. For example in part one, chapter two Cather describes John Bergson’s struggles by saying “ Now, when he had at last struggled out of debt, he was going to die himself. He was only forty-six, and had, of course, counted upon more time.” Also in part two, chapter twelve Alexandra states
In addition, Bray uses situational irony when Tiara states “I am going to be so super skinny by pageant time” (11) in response to the notion that they might not have food. Tiara being content without food simply for the sake of being “super skinny” illustrates how women, especially in beauty pageants, are brain washed into believing that they have to be skinny to be beautiful or wanted. Bray criticizes the stereotype of beauty and weight placed on women and young
She is said to now have a happy ending. This poem talks about how this girl was just an innocent girl who didn't have any issues with herself till she reached a certain age. Other peoples comments is what made her become self conscious and felt the need to please others. She put herself through so much to get to this perfect image and eventually gave up. She gave up her nose
Her word choice is often informal or conversational, which makes the reader feel as if they are being told a story by a friend. For example, she says, “My father, incidentally, had wanted to name me Sara. I do wish he had won that argument” (739). She uses casual words and short sentences to make the passage simple and easy to understand. She also is blunt and to the point, without the descriptive or page filling details that are not necessary to her memoir.
