Also, Oreo’s are milks best friend but Lorna Doones are just not the right cookie for that job. And don’t get me started on the taste. Oreo’s taste like chocolate goodness and Lorna Doones taste a lot like flour trust me. Oreo’s have a creamy vanilla filling while the Lorna Doones don’t have any creamy good filling there plain cookies. Lastly, the Oreo’s may have more calories than the Lorna Doones..
In addition, she portrays similar tones such as desperation and mournfulness. In fact, in lines 30 to 24 her tone is at it’s most somber state as she expresses her guilt for being a bad mother to her “child” and believes she has not sent this child away prepared for the world’s cruel criticism. Furthermore, the diction is a device that coincides with the tone of the poem. Her choice of words all share a very strong connotation. As previously mentioned she uses the words ill formed and feeble to describe her unfinished writing’s fragility.
On the surface the extract “The Loom” by R L Sasaki is a narrative about a mother who spent her time weaving, but it is also a narrative that creates a nostalgic tone and uses an extended metaphor of a loom to explore a mother’s depression and expresses the importance of family. As her children grow up and leave home, she becomes lost for a purpose in life. As a result she starts weaving a “fortress” in which she “seemed to have taken refuge” in order to cope with her emotions. The extended metaphor of the loom is used again to symbolize the mother’s emotions. The mother starts weaving with gray, brown and neutral shades, “all the shades of her life”, to express her depression.
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.
A little bit later in chapter one, William Golding describes Piggy. He says ``the fat boy waited to be asked his name in turn, but this proffer of acquaintances was not made. The fact that William said proffer of acquaintance, indicates that a good vocabulary is linked with Piggy, meaning that he is intelligent. In society, for some strange reason, smart people are not always accepted. Thirdly, Piggy is characterized as lazy or weak.
Reese's are salty and sweet. The salty side in me gets the things people do not understand like, the weird jokes, or the tragedy parts in a war and have an interest in it. But while with the sweet side cares for people and has that comforting side that a person needs to have to interact with others. But my personal all time favorite candy in the world is York Peppermint Pattie. Just the oozy, goosy, goodness that fills the body when you take that first bite of the wonderfully peppermint mixed with dark chocolate mixture.
The speaker presents examples of the roles of women in order to set a standard of comparison between the three generations and to show the differences in expectations of women within them. This poem confirms that women fall under stereotypes, depending on when they were born. Though these expectations of being a woman remain relatively the same through time, Mirikitani’s writing illustrates how each generation undergoes changes, and how the drive for rebelling against society grows within each later generation. The speaker in “Breaking Tradition” uses the metaphor of “separate rooms” to demonstrate that each generation is inevitably different from the previous one and that the desire to be free of societal norms and expectations increases within every one. From the beginning of the poem, there is an obvious separation of generations, hence the “separate rooms”.
However, in the story "Girl", written by Jamaica Kincaid, also the anonymous poem, "Edward, Edward", mothers and their relationship with their children were depicted in the exact opposite of what was expected. Obviously, the initial expectation of a mother being present would serve as a means of love, encouragement and overall positivity. They were expected to have their children's best interest and to provide the best possible advice that a mother could give. However, in the texts, the mothers served as a means of creating hostility. This, ultimately strains the relationship between them.
* I am going to compare the themes of two short stories, “I Stand Here Ironing” and “Everyday Use”. “I Stand Here Ironing” is written in a participating narrator point of view. Her theme is a basis of motherhood. She claims as though the position of a mother and how society expects to be is truly just a discovery of how to overcome obstacles. It also focuses on the points of guilt and regret in her life as a mother and how she feels that there is guiltiness within her because of the absence she has made within her daughters’ life.
She explores the issues of social identity and feelings of a confused young girl who has just reached the adolescent stage of her life. This poem explores deep into the connection between physical and mental changes as the girl matures, and feels she has “been betrayed by” from these changes. These changes within her cause a sense of self- consciousness. In the poem it shows the two voices of the girl, both the inner child and the matured young lady’s feelings and thoughts. This shows us the points of views between the two sides she has to overcome.
