Bradstreet’s use of metaphor allows her to relate the complex relationships of being a parent to being an author. When the narrator calls her creation her “ ill-formed offspring of [her] feeble brain” she draws parallels between how parents can feel about their children when frustrated (line 1). The narrator refers to her work as a “ rambling brat” to show how difficult it is to accept something she has created (7). The narrator seems to feel this difficulty not only as an author but also as a mother. As a frustrated parent feels the narrator once again uses the metaphor of a child to describe how an author feels when their work does not turn out how they wanted.
In "The History Teacher", Collins tells the story of a teacher explaining events in history differently than they actually were. He "glamourizes" these historical events to preserve his students innocence. Both of the poets tell a story of adults lying to young children, however; the only similarity between these two poems is that they consist of adults lying to children. The reason for the dishonesty in both poems are not the same. By reading both of these poems, the poets, by their writing styles, are revealing in each poem the young children are of different ages.

Many may argue that the way Jamaica’s mother spoke to her was “verbally abusive” but in reality her mother was showing her how to prepare for the world and everything in it. For example, one quote from the short story on line #35-38 when the mother says “this is how to bully a man; this is how a man bullies you; this is how to love a man; and if this doesn't work there are other ways, and if they don’t work don’t feel to bad about giving up.” This quote is important because the mother is teaching her daughter from personal experience, and you can tell from what she says that she has had a bad experience with men. The mother has obviously been through a relationship where she was “bullied” by a man and is teaching her daughter from that mistake because she doesn’t want her to go through the same situation. She tells her daughter “this is how to bully a man” so she’s basically saying this is how to not let a man walk all over you. Jamaica’s mom is only being a mother by teaching her daughter right from wrong and preparing her for life and the people in it.

Mr.___ say, Cause she my wife.” (23) In other words, that’s the way it is son. Albert later advises his son, “Well how you spect to make her mind?
After his father died, he would regularly go and visit her. In daddy the sense of contradiction is apparent in the rhyme scheme and organisation. It uses a nursery rhyme scheme, singsong way of speaking. There are hard sounds, short lines and repeated rhymes (“Jew”, “through”, “do” and “you”) this also establishes and reinforces the childlike and childish figure in relation to her fascist father. Additionally, the unstable relationship perhaps, has reduced Plath to a childish mental state, which elicits throughout.
Feminists believe the family is bad for women. Girls and boys learn their different gender roles within the family through socialisation. Girls copy their mothers, doing housework, whilst boys copy their fathers, doing DIY. They then learn that this is how
This suggests that an older Jane is looking back at her childhood and narrating. However, when Jane uses direct speech, the reader can tell she is a child.

You are like a murderer – you are like a slave driver – you are like the Roman emperors!” Bronte uses child-like language by using simple, short sentence structure. Also children repeat themselves and Jane uses a lot of repetition.
