In this essay, I will be talking about Christina Rossetti 's poem Goblin Market. Goblin market is Rossetti 's best known poem that contains many themes like the idea of the forbidden fruit, sisterhood, gothic, prostitution, gender roles and sexuality. Goblin Market was originally known as a moral fairytale for children. But researchers disregarded it as a children 's fairytale because of its misleading form and they focused on its real core, which was recognized throughout the poem by the persistent "merchant men" calls and actions towards Laura and Lizzie. Although Goblin Market internal audience is indeed "the little ones" to whom Laura tells her story, it is important to remember that the poem 's first known public audience was not children but adults.
The short story,¨The Lottery,¨ by shirley Jackson shows the theme of duality of human nature. One character who showed duality was Tessie because when the lottery first started she was going along with everything but when her family got called she changed her whole dynamic. She is now saying that the lottery is not fair since her husband was the one who pulled the paper with the dot on it, but if it was someone else she wouldn't be saying that. She was only speaking up about it not being fair because her life depended on it. Although she was a good example of duality, all of the woman showed duality of human nature.
And how things will end with her sneaking around before turning pretty. Tally was very sneaky because of the way she did things like the time she went to new pretty town without being pretty. And they quoted “Tally was an infiltrator, a sneak, and an ugly. But to explain the reason the pretties said this awful quote was because she was funny looking and Tally didn’t belong over there as of now.
Chapter eight’s epigraph in The Secret Life of Bees explains how isolation can tear a family apart whether it be bees or humans. To begin, the main representatives from the epigraph would be August, June, and May characterizing the honeybee sisters, and May portraying the honeybee left in the dark, or isolated from the truth. When August and June decided to not tell May of the incidents going on, for her well being, the sisters did not see it as a problem. in their minds, as long as May didn 't find out, she would be fine, but when she did it was worse than ever could be imagined. Instead of expressing her emotion by sobbing, singing, rocking, and tugging she sat silently and limply, her eyes glazed over as if nothing made it through
Carol’s mindset is completely distorting how people fall in love. This way of thinking is wrong, since people cannot be forced to fall in love, and it is one of the many problems with these required marriages. The lines between reality, falling in love naturally, and fiction, falling in love because of a romantic setting, are blurred until nearly everyone is deceived. This is exemplified as Carol contemplates the steps of falling in love and decides that “love required only the right conditions” to grow “like a geranium.” The young people in the 1950s that share Carol’s mindset forget that love cannot be forced to grow.
For example in the original text “persephone” she had ate some seeds from the underworld. Which was a risk because she didn’t know what could happen if she was eating some food from the underworld. In the “Persephone falling”, by rita Dove, she said on line 9 “She has strayed from the herd”. That piece of evidence shows that when she strayed from the heard she was at risk and she was in danger and that relates to the theme that danger is everywhere because when she strayed from the herd which means she went off by herself. In contrast in the original story “persephone” was not given instruction on how to stay safe which also presented more danger.
Moreover, the description of the prostitute provides an alternative perspective to approach the Massacre by adding a feminine layer to the narrative. At the beginning, they do not understand the disastrous results of the fall of the country, these cynical adventuresses seeking asylum in the safety zone or the church, and they are still satisfying with themselves in the world of jewelry, nail polish and cosmetics. For example, in City of Life and Death, streetwise Xiao Jiang refuses to cut her beautiful curly long hair for the reason that she believes she will need these sexy and feminine indicators to earn money after the war. In the two films the prostitutes’ female thinking for material gain and beauty almost disrupts the national epic 's seriousness, but enlivens the gloomy diegesis with a pragmatic concern for survival. According to McClintock (2011), this fresh angle in approaching the war, as well as the commercial potential of presenting the exotic female community, appeals to Zhang Yimou greatly, and he changed the film title from The Heroes of Nanking to The Flowers of War.
While young men on the other hand did, and they could find themselves prostitutes to relieve their sexual feelings. Rossitti insists her poem is that of a mythical nature written for children of all kind. Yet, while reading through, it is very hard to believe it is written without any sexual tendencies as two girls discuss the trade of fruit for money or parts of themselves. The poem starts with a list of fruits for which the goblins have for purchase.
The Invention of Monopoly Introduction Charles Darrow, the man credited for inventing Monopoly, was actually not the true inventor of the board game; The real inventor, was actually a lady named Lizzie Magie, who never received much credit for inventing it first.

Claire Woppmann 8th Grade Social Studies Satirical Letter Prince Shōtoku Taishi, Japan’s legendary regent from 593 to 622 CE – who was inspired by Buddha’s teachings, authored Japan’s seventeen-article constitution in 604 CE and established a centralized government during his reign – has sent a message from beyond the grave to American republican presidential candidate Donald Trump. We stumbled upon this letter while trying to contact some ancient spirits. Apparently, Prince Shōtoku decided that he met the qualifications for an “ancient spirit”. The bald spot on one of our coworkers may have confused him into thinking that he was delivering this to Donald Trump himself.
