Marigolds Marigold Marigolds the book Marigolds was a very interesting Story From the author Eugenia Collier. The genre of the book was a Short Story And it was fiction. But to me the book was about there is beauty in life if you can find it. The first theme to me was when she was talking about herself when she was young. For example She Said “When I think of the hometown of my young all that I seem to remember is dust-brown crumbly dust of late summer- arid sterile dust that the eyes and makes them water, get into the throat, and between the toes of my bare brown feet.
Sir Gawain and the Green Knight is a romance, composed in the mid-to late 14th century. It is one of the prominent Medieval English romance in the Arthurian tradition. Larry Benson describes the peom as “both a tragic romance with the sad moral that perfection is beyond our grasp and an unromantic comedy with the happy point that if a man aims high enough he can come as near perfection as this world allows.” There is only one copy of the earlier original manuscript, which dates from 1400. It has been kept since then in the British Library. Because of the poem Pearl - which can be found in the same manuscript – the anonymous author is alternatively called “The Pearl Poet” or also “The Gawain Poet.” There are no historical records regarding the author, except for the assumption that he had written another two poems in the manuscript, which are as follow - Cleanness and Patience.
In this quote, Myrtle speaks snobbishly while imagining that she sounds fancy. In this quote, Myrtles’ yearning to become a part of the upper class can be seen very easily. In order to create a false impression of being wealthy, she becomes a complete braggart. In fact, Myrtle talks about how she shouldn’t have married into a lower class, and that she only married Wilson because she thought he was a gentleman.

Symptoms include a disregard for right and wrong, violating the rights of others, and a lack of empathy. The main indication that Nurse Ratchet has antisocial personality disorder is that she hurts others to achieve her means and does not feel any remorse about it. She plays people’s biggest weaknesses against them, like she always does with Billy. In the moments after Billy had sex and he was actually feeling confident, she brought up his mother so that she was able to control him; it was this mention of his mother that made Billy kill himself, yet Nurse Ratchet felt no remorse for her actions. Something else that she does that proves she has no idea of right and wrong is that when people do not do what she wants, she sends them to get electroshock therapy or lobotomies.

In both passages, Attwood highlights the distinctive perspectives with the focus directing towards the maids. In the first passage, the perspective that Attwood presents is the maids’, where she uses a repetition of “wipe” to suggest that the maid’s are forced to “wipe the floor and wipe away the grease.” Contextually, this passage occurs in the days where Penelope is alone and Odeysseus hasn’t come back yet. The author chooses to use the repetition of “wipe” instead of describing the maids’ daily tasks through the noble’s demands to suggest that the maids know that they have no choice but to follow instructions. She also further emphasises this through the connotation “we are not chased around the hall,” where she refers to the maids’ dreams. By doing this, Attwood infers that those who have names and roles, namely the suitors who chase
Synge’s evergreen play In the Shadow of the Glen(1903), though it winds up in half an hour, it delivers a great dramatic punch. It is an outcome of a story he happened to hear at Aran Islands which he narrated later in his work The Aran Islands. Though it is a one-act play, it captures bitter humor and biting wit of peasant life of Ireland. In this play Synge portrays Nora Burke as the actual representative of women who are subject to tragedies that are the ultimate results of presiding social mores of Ireland. He rejected to an extent the idealized creation of the peasant, which had been a central aspect of writings done by the revivalist writers.
