In Hoefel’s article, she presents the idea that reading “The Jilting of Granny Weatherall” from a heterosexual viewpoint introduces possibly incorrect assumptions about the priorities in Ellen’s life. This heterosexual/mainstream view is inconsistent with the author’s previous feminist writing style in which the female protagonist undergoes an experience of self-discovery and defies the roles that society or custom assign them. The conjecture that her life, as a woman, revolved entirely around family, and that all of the names she mentions are only those of family members, limits the understanding of Ellen and departs sharply from Porter’s writing style. It depreciates her identity as a woman by confining her motives to a simple desire for
After she begins to make connections with how other people write because again making connections is a crucial part to close reading. She speaks about how the author could have used a first name, last name, an Mrs. That he had a lot of different choices he could of made but decided to merely “reducing her to her role in the family as does the fact that her daughter in law is never called anything but the children’s mother.” (356). Prose then generates another idea from reading the first sentence which is the fact that “the first sentence is a refusal which in very simplicity, emphasizes the force with which the old woman is digging in her
Rhetorical Analysis of "Your Mother 's Maiden Name Is Not a Secret" In Anne Diebel 's article "Your Mother 's Maiden Name Is Not a Secret" from The New York Times, she argues that websites that contain important or personal information "protected" by security questions are not secure and need to be replaced. This article was written just after several cyber attacks that happened in the previous year. Although Diebel uses many logical arguments, including statistics and examples, her argument is not effective as a whole because of a lack of solid facts with certain evidence and strong credibility. Deibel begins her article by pointing out that basic security questions have been overlooked and accepted for too long. Diebel blames attributes the blame to banks when they chose security questions to "improve their security measures for online banking" (2).
Which explained why she had an affair and why Anse remarried so quickly toward the end. None of them loved each other. That is how I interpreted her passage while reading the book and why I rewrote her passage as if she did not enjoy her life because she did not. My mock style approach Faulkner’s style because in the first paragraph I wrote in that style because Addie explained the real reason why she married Anse and that being a mother was the worst for her. Faulkner wrote that Addie took him, however, I wrote that she only married him because of the house and farm while she did not have much and Anse wanted to marry her so she took the chance.
Formula fiction is literature in which the storylines and plots have been used over and over again to an extent whereby the narratives are predictable. Genre fiction identifies a number of specific setting that are being used over and over again which is similar to Formula fiction. The story “A secret sorrow” didn’t relate to formula fiction at the beginning but progressively, I could not predict why she didn’t want to get married nor why she didn’t tell kai she was seeing a doctor and even had another referral. When Faye finally revealed that she was unable to have any kids and that’s her reason for not wanting to get married to him, it made it easier for me to predict what was coming next. I figured she would later have kids and put a family together even if they were not hers.
While reading Eleanor & Park from beginning to end, I find myself not liking the book as much as I had hoped. There were some problematic instances of negative stereotyping. Park 's mother, Mindy, is a perfect example of how she is portrayed in such a way some people will find offensive. The family dynamics from both of the main characters ' families are not good at all, if not very dangerous to readers who have already survived from any sort of abuse. My biggest problem here is the romance.
Jane Eyre in An Alternative Universe: The Awakening of Women’s Hood. When St. John proposed to me, unlike myself in the other universe who heard Mr. Rochester’s voice calling, I received an oracle, “Jane, you shall be independent! Your purpose of life is not to be a wife of someone!” These groundbreaking but innovative words shocked me deeply. I had never place myself on a level that I am able to live a life of my own. I had been manipulated by the gentlemen’s game for too long time.
In the very first paragraph Rao mentions a the conversations she had with two different people, the first person say “I never read fiction” and “After what 's the point of a book if it doesn 't teach you anything.” Another person says “Fiction is not real, no?” and adds “I only like to read real stories to improve myself.” She states that many young people don 't see the benefit in read unless its to help improve themselves, or to ace a job interview. According to Rao the “modern attitude
But your book made me realize that it happens and it is the way of life and I have learned to accept it. When I found out that Cara felt she no longer had a purpose I was befuddled. I felt this because it reminded me of when my sister thought she was worthless and had no purpose in life. This part in your book reminded me that not everyone in life is happy or feels like they have a purpose and feel useless. It got me thinking that this might possibly be a reason for suicides.I have also realized that some people become so attached to their lives that when a change occurs their whole world goes upside
This emotion causes people to do all sorts of things that they might regret later on as portrayed in Louisa May Alcott’s Novel, “Little Women”. After Josephine ignored her sister Amy for burning her book, both sisters felt awful for what they did. Theodore Laurence implored Margaret for forgiveness because he pulled a harsh prank that hurt her. Mr. Laurence regretted not having a good relationship with his son because of a silly fight that drifted the family apart. This feeling of regret teaches a person to learn, grow and flourish into a stable, patient
Though it was frowned for a woman to act, think, write, and speak like men, that didn’t stop them. In the book, Revolutionary Mothers by Carol Berkin, we learned that women were prohibited to exercise anything out of field and house work, especially politics, this book demonstrates that over the decades, women had altered that perception.
The one thing I would have changed was the testimony that Taya, Chris Kyle’s wife, gave in spurts throughout the book. While it does give perspective from her side I felt like It broke up the text and it seemed to be of non importance at times. I wish her part was more limited to the very most important parts, not every chapter. That would improve the flow of the book I believe. Additionally I think the publisher should add something about the rest of his life at the end.
When Travis Parker faces the choice of turning off his wife’s life support, I am reminded of two interviews I conducted where the interviewees had to turn off the life support of a child. (Beckford, Avil)” It was good that she put a recommendation to readers but she did not go into detail. In some cases, it is good to keep it sweet and short but hers was way too short for me honestly. Many people come to find what Beckford thinks about the book and having it short doesn’t really help. It was nice to have a summary of the book, but I think she sort of went a little overboard on the summary though.
