Okay, everyone gets sick, that is just a part of being human. As my mother continued to explain, she mentioned that my father will be starting chemotherapy this week to treat his lymphoma. As any teenage boy would do, I acted as though I was strong and unaffected, when in reality, I was confused. I’ve always heard about chemotherapy and other treatments, but
Mary Anne changed for good when she realized that she was going to be forced to leave and she became self defensive and violent as a
Thus at the story 's conclusion, we are shown a character who has evolved past the boundaries of the narrative itself. Moving on, another stylistic choice that O’Brien uses is the far fetched characterization and seemingly instant metamorphosis of Mary Anne. When, Rat and the rest of the soldiers see Mary Anne, she is depicted as a young, sweet, innocent girl. O’Brien alludes to her deep American roots as he describes her as having “long white legs and blue eyes and a complexion like strawberry ice cream” - a subtle way to put in red,white, and blue (O’Brien, 93). However, her character doesn’t stay so innocent and sweet for long.
Being a caregiver is hard work, but Dr. Green and myself, set aside time to provide for those. After months of painful chemotherapy, her aunt decided that she no longer wanted to live with the side effects of chemotherapy. After the death of her aunt, three months later her uncle was diagnosed with
She has been changed by some degree from this experience, whether she would like to believe it or not. This was a test that in her previous lifestyle she may have never needed to exemplify such strength. She bore witness to a great deal of malicious behavior inflected upon her people and did not lash out to the Indians. Instead, Mary showed great strength by not attempting to escape and biding her time. She also found some of the Indian clothing quite beautiful.
The final trait to describe her is clever. “She explains to sam that Patrick is so tired he hadn 't wanted to got out for supper. She told how she’ed put the meat in the oven- it 's there now cooking.” Mary makes up a story. Here is a quotation to prove it.
Throughout Mary Rowlandson's captivity, her personality seems to change, both by gaining a sense of self-preservation and by becoming more calloused and cold to regular human emotion. This newfound sense of self-preservation is seen when Mary takes a horse's foot from an English child being held captive and feeling no shame for having taken it. One sees she has become cold and calloused when her mistress's baby dies, and Mary is almost happy about it because the baby's death means that Mary can sleep in the tent. At the beginning of the narrative, Mary cares about others and feels normal human emotions, but her personality makes a drastic change because she has to cope with being held
Mary not only had grown as an intellectual, but so had her independent stance in the world. Soon after she had graduated from medical school, she married the man in whom she loved and opened her own private practice. Mary still aspired to have a larger role among the community. After offering her business to the government, she applied for a role in the U.S. Army, however, she was denied and instead offered the
After Mark Fossie brought Mary Anne over to the war, she started to take a liking to it and then left Mark’s group, “‘You’re in a place,’ Mary Anne said softly, ‘where you don’t belong.’ … Mark Fossie stood rigid. ‘Do something,’ he whispered. ‘I can’t just let her go like that.’ Rat listened for a time, then shook his head.
Mary was a woman, and women were not allowed to fight in the war, so she changed herself into a man. Mary ann is now Thomas Edward “I always get looks, do you think they know?” So how did Mary do it, how did she trick the recruitment officers into thinking she was a man. In her diary herself she tells us everything, she was a twisted woman.
Mary Anne is a symbol of war and what it can cause or change permanently. The innocent American girl was changed forever. The Man I Killed “His jaw was in his throat, his upper lip and teeth were gone, his one eye was shut, his other eye was a start-shaped hole, his eyebrows were thin and arched like a

I only began to understand the concept of an individual being terminally ill when my grandmother went into the hospital. I placed my hand inside of hers and stared at her emotionless face. I could only imagine the pain running through her body and the agony of not being able to vocalize a response to my ‘I love you’. Day after day she waited only anticipating her death and the pain she would feel if indeed she woke up the next day. I would have done anything to not have to see her go through the pain, and to allow her to get to her fate quicker and more comfortably.
