She stopped to get something to eat and saw her whole group meeting without her, she felt extremely unappreciated and knew the group members didn’t respect her contributions.
Young girls tried with all of their might to be just like Barbie, to be perfect. In 1973 when Marge Piercy wrote this poem, she was conveying a message to her readers that no matter how hard we try, perfection is not something we achieve in our lifetimes, only in death. At the time this poem was written, Barbie had already been out for nearly twenty years. “Millions of children throughout the world, mostly girls, owned and played with one or more Barbie dolls, while some older people collected them (and some still do)” (Sherrow 1). Many of these women and young girls were trying to emulate her look at the time, which considering her measurements of 39-18-33, was virtually impossible.

Wouldn’t that be much more jolly?” (Rama Rau 114). The head mistress’s condescending tone creates tension because it makes the reader feel uncomfortable for the characters. Rama Rau puts this experience in the beginning of the story to set up the tension the reader will feel through out the story. Premila’s mom expresses, “You’re to small to have them. You won’t have them in donkey’s years” (Rama Rau 116).
One solution claims that there is actually no delay on Hamlet's part, or that any delay is due to external difficulties. The truth is that we might not have noticed the delay if Hamlet himself had not brought it to our attention. Shakespeare stresses the point that Hamlet is delaying. Thus, it is meaningless to argue that Hamlet is not responsible for the delay when Shakespeare clearly wants us to see that he is. In the eighteenth century, critics suggested that the delay is a necessary plot device to extend the action.

Now she feels unsecure talking to her mother and their conversations have become a routine.
