Aunt Fay writes to her niece Alice in the hope of teaching her about Austen and her writing and what better way to do that than by direct reference to Austen’s most successful text, Pride and Prejudice? Weldon in turn helps the actual reader understand Pride and Prejudice by commenting on the characters’ behaviour and the plot by giving her personal opinion, as well as identifying typical language features and explaining why Austen is valued today. She expresses empathy for Mrs Bennet which encourages the reader to reconsider their own opinion Her use of first person language tells the reader that they are reading a biased opinion, but also helps the reader trust Weldon as she is speaking

Reading Response #5 As Cynthia Ozick says in her essay “She: Portrait of the Essay as a Warm Body”, “an essayist must be an artist”. In this essay she explains the importance of writers when it comes to essays. Each essay has a different content, but they each embody their writer. Their words are taken from the warm body that they come from and are translated onto the page. At the conclusion of her essay, Ozick personifies the essay as “she”, giving us a better idea of what an essay would look like or would do if it were a “she”.
Due to the limited amount of resources and the restrictions laid upon women for practicing rhetoric, it is astonishing how many women were still able to make a significant impact on the field of rhetoric which I feel has paved the way for women’s liberations rights today. Christine de Pizan portrayed the art of rhetoric through language and letter writing as she challenged the boundaries of women’s input at the time.

It is imperative that more time and space be dedicated to Christine De Pizan in Herricks textbook of rhetoric and many more to follow. Christine De Pizan is a brave woman who stood up to the verbal assaults on women in the 14th century.
Most black women quit school to work so they could support their families. There were some black maids who felt that the discrimination was wrong and rebelled and wrote a book on the experiences in the white’s home.

At the end of line five and including line six, the idea of the woman herself being a black woman is explained as "these hips are free hips" (portraying slavery). The fact of the sixties being a time for equal right especially towards the African Americans, the poem is an examples of the outspoken movement within our country by line seven; "They don’t like to be held back". "These hips have never been enslaved" is translated to a woman that was not a slave herself or even been a
The Masters would use the children as bartering tools when African American women would refuse to engage in certain things that the master wanted her to do. In many cases the African women would have sex with the Master so that their friend, husband etc. would not be beaten or killed. Woman are very strong creatures and they seem to have had very good instincts when it came to what would help to prevent another occurrence whether a woman knew how to read or not she was able to assist with orchestrating a plan to escape slavery. Men definitely did not do it alone and if all you pick up is the books that are only given in schools you will miss so much more in depth information about how they assisted with all that we have today.
Their mother. Now these two poems are almost different to each other, because they are two different things. But when compared, the shared similarities are very clear to notice. These poems are about two different kinds of relationships, but they are based on the same theme, which is love! The language used in these poems is very different to each other because they were written in different ages.
Never As It Seems Donald Taylor ENG125: Introduction to Literature Instructor Maria Rasimas April 26, 2015 Conflicts and literary techniques are present in any literature, including poems and short stories. Identifying them gives readers a more understanding of what the story is about. “Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been” by Joyce Carol Oates, 1966 and “Good Country People” by Flannery O’Connor, 1953”, are two short stories that have a similar conflict, mainly individual against another individual, but their selfishness and pride created issues that neither saw coming until it was too late.
