The narrator from the beginning kept saying she hated the wallpaper, and that she kept seeing a very weird pattern that didn’t make any sense. It’s kind of obvious each time she spent inspecting the wall, she became more “sick” or made her sickness progress. Thus making her more comfortable with the yellow wallpaper. The narrator even says “… and I am determined that nobody shall find it out but myself. “(Gilman, page 475).

The novel, The Glass Castle, shows a detached parenting style from both Rosemary and Rex. Between Rex’s constant struggle with alcohol and Rosemary’s spurs of bipolar depression, the children were often left to fend for themselves, without any help or supervision of adults. The memoir describes that some nights they wouldn’t see their mother, and Rex would disappear for days at a time. Even when Rex and Rosemary were there for their children, they still preferred to rule the household with little interference or guidance. They can’t maintain order the household, nor did they offer any discipline to their growing children.
I read this during the 3rd grade and, I found it really exciting because of his unique power which allowed him to speak to paintings. The way the author (Jenny Nimmo) wrote the book was for it to be a cliffhanger (from what I remember.) The book was also written in a way so that a 3rd grader would be able to read it and understand what is happening. What I really liked about the way it was written was that it made me feel like I was older then I really was. The book also had this way that if you forgot 30 pages worth of info, you would be able to recover and relearn what happened.
She uses ethos here because the speech is from a graduation and she’s an expert in graduating because she experienced it herself and she has an excellent life now. “Now all I have to do is take deep breaths, squint at the red banners and convince myself that I am at the world’s largest Gryffindor reunion” (Page 1, column 1, line 10-13) This is an allusion because it’s a reference to her well-known Harry Potter book series. This reference is very good, because many people know of her work and therefore they will relate to the content. “I have decided to talk to you about the benefits of failure. And as you stand in the threshold of what is sometimes called ‘real life’, I want to extol the crucial importance of imagination” (Page 1, column 2, line 11-13) This is a metaphor, cause it’s comparing graduating to walking through a threshold into ‘real life.’ This is effective because it shows that the students are about to leave the
One of the reasons that Adeline 's is so depressed is because the first thing is the fact that Adeline never gets any mail from anyone because her parents have forbiddened anyone from getting any mail. When she goes she was very small and then when she was older her parents never got here any new clothes and then she became known as the referee. She had made friends at her school but then her parents had have enough so then they had sent her to an orphanage. Finally no one cares about Adeline because if someone did then she would not feel like she is nothing and then she would have felt better about her self and then she probably would have had a better thought about herself and maybe about her friends. That is why I think that Chinese Cinderella is a depressing story.
Mary Shelley, with no doubt, lived a hard life filled with sorrow and despair. Her mother died during childbirth. She had a stepmother that she never got along with (“Mary Wollstonecraft Shelley”). Her adult life decisions led to the alienation of her father and her own home town. These actions contributed to one of her greatest Gothic Literature novels, Frankenstein (“Mary Shelley”).
In The Fall of the House of Usher the symbolism is displayed when the narrator sees the house and describes it as very creepy but clearly stated that he notices the crack of the House from the bottom to the very top of it. Here it is symbolizing the crack that both Roderick Usher and Madeline Usher for they both described as having a problem for they both had flaws and were about to die. Madeline had an illness no doctor could describe and was on the verge of dying and this caused her brother Roderick to go mad physically and emotionally. The crack was not just the house but both Roderick and Madeline all
Neither Kafka nor Gregor followed the existentialist idea of freedom of choice in a person’s life. They both had a life they didn’t ask for and responsibilities they were forced to assume. This principle of lack of freedom is clearly shown by the unexpected transformation of Gregor, waking up as an insect and obtaining the freedom he lacked, emancipating himself of obligations, injustice and final duties. He is freed from the obligation to work to maintain his family and liberated himself from his tyrannical father. Although he turned into a horrible insect, the metamorphosis did not change the beauty of his soul.
