In this essay “Living in Two Worlds” written by Marcus Mabry, I will analyse his split life by examining how his new life is affect poverty, finding a balance and self reliance. The harsh reality is many of his family members were struggling to make ends meet while he was living a modest life because of the scholarship he had received in ninth grade. This affects him from truly enjoying this experiencing considering that during the day his life was satisfying but when he got home this completely changed when he was forced with his reality of living with poverty. As a result of this “Most students who travel between the universe of poverty and affluence during breaks experience similar conditions, as well as the guilt, the helplessness and, sometimes, the embarrassment associated with them. ”(Mabry 100) The previous quote highlights why it
“ My father said, “ I didn’t say anything about yours, but I know what your thinking” ( 85 ). She is offended by her father, saying that her hair is nothing like her mothers, but Sal externally always wanted to be just like her mother. “ Mrs. Winterbottom half heartedly chipped away at the burnt brownies and asked Prudence, if she would have another chance at cheerleading tryouts,” ( 97 ). This incident led up to Mrs. Winterbottom's disappearance, which then made Sal realize how much she respected her mother and her leaving, and wishes that she had treated her mother with more respect and that she needs to treat her father with more respect, so he doesn’t get any ideas of following Sal's mom's footsteps. “ I am not brave, I am not good and I wish someone would call me by my real name, “ ( 103 ). Sal realizes that her mom left because she felt unappreciated from her husband because he never called her by her real name. Sal noted that she needs to make anyone appreciated so nothing like this happens to anyone else.

Robin Sharma once said, “Change is hard at first, messy in the middle and gorgeous at the end.” This quote really relates to Sal because when her mother left she was a mess and it was hard for her. Later, she moved and more things changed and things happened that she didn 't expect to happen. Although, in the end she was happy in Bybanks and happy with her family and friends. In the book Walk Two Moons, by Sharon Creech, Sal changes significantly from a lot of external forces in her life.
An internal force that changes Sal is on page 35 when Sal states “ One day about two weeks after she had left, I was standing against the fence watching a newborn calf wobble on its thin legs. It tripped and wobbled and swung its big head in my direction and gave me a sweet look ‘Oh!’ I thought I am happy at this very moment in time.”’ And another quote on the same page that Sal states that “ I said to myself, ‘ Salamanca tree Hiddle you can be happy without her.’ It seemed a mean thought and i was sorry for it, but it Felt true. These two quote are very important to the story because if Sal never learned how to feel after her mother lest she would have never felt bad about Phoebe's mother leaving her and how Mrs.Cadavers husband died. Salamanca not feeling would mean no
Where the Wild Things are by Maurice Sendak is an interesting children’s picture book. The main character is a little boy named Max, who has a wild imagination.

Due to the theocratic state in "The Crucible", many were forced to adapt while others decided to revolt. Abigail, a girl who just wanted to gain possession of her companion became the cause of many innocent people being hanged. In "The Crucible" we gain sight of dramatic irony where the reader knows the truth, Abigail is not a victim rather the antagonist in the story but the characters are not aware of this instead unconsciously believing she is a helpless girl being attacked by the powerful devil. Fate has not been in her favor as she loses her parents in front of her very eyes scarring her for life. The actions she takes and the outcome it creates cannot be pardoned due to the way she has become from this tragic event.

“The ways in which the characters in Lorraine Hansberry’s play, A raisin in the sun, are affected by racial imbalances and respond to the injustices engendered by such inequities are solely influenced by their gender.” I agree with this statement to an extent. Although it is correct that gender plays a big role in this play, there are other factors to consider.
