Every mother dreams to see her son succeed in life, giving them the feeling of relief (after falling into life`s many struggles and conflicts) and accomplishment of serving their purpose in life. Langston Hughes expresses many words of wisdom in this poem by demonstrating the love, concern, and affection a mother has for her dear son, simply to express a very sage advice: to never give up on life. He does this by using the literary devices voice, symbolism, and message. Not only is voice a very powerful literary device used in this poem, but it is rather a major factor whereas Hughes conveyed his voice in the mother to capture the reader`s intention. There are many reasons why the poet might have decided the mother to be the voice of the poem.
Fortunately, my mother thinks I speak well and finds that she usually understands what I am communicating the first time around. She noted me as being articulate and says that I provide the right amount of information to needed for a thorough understanding to be arrived at. However, she said that it annoys her that I sometimes do not listen. She attributes my poor listening to my lack of patience and eagerness to formulate and articulate conclusions before I hear what she has to say. She believes that my tendency to “know it all” keeps me at a level three on her scale of communication satisfaction.
Mother Tongue In “Mother Tongue”, Amy Tan writes about discrimination through “broken English” compared to Standard English and how people who speak “broken English” are usually taken advantage of. In Tans essay she quotes her mother’s speech to demonstrate her mother’s “broken English”. The quoted parts were filled with grammatical mistakes and the text was quite confusing. Yet, according to Tan “You should know that my mother’s expressive command of English belittles how much she actually understands”. This reminds me of my childhood, because growing up I would have to constantly translate for my mother.
Her kind and gracious Aunt build’s Sybylla’s confidence and self esteem and is gentle and understanding, recognising her inner beauty, while reinforcing her physical beauty. Aunt Helen’s positive impact on Sybylla can be seen through the quote “No one would dream of calling you plain, let alone ugly; brilliant is the word which best describes you.” This quote assists the reader in furthering their understanding into the contradictive impression that others have on Sybylla. Similarly, the protagonist, Peekay, in the
Most importantly parents listened to me when I needed to talk to. When I hung over head, my parents pushed me forward with their stimulating words. Parents always try to disappear my problems and life becomes easier for me. I like their habit to help someone in need. Parents provide me the greatest emotional support in my life.
Three wise words that come to mind when thinking of my mother, is strength, trustworthy, and supportive. She is the strongest woman I know, and by me saying she is strong I don’t mean physically, she is never showing sad emotion, she accepts life the way it is. She chooses to look at the brighter sides of things; when a family member has died, she is the one saying; at least she is in a better place, when most people are grieving. That is why I am the way I am. I can accept things even if they aren’t meant to be, because she has shown me how to have strength and overcome adversity and the toughest times throughout life.
With her help and the Lord’s, I have been able to learn how to forgive and let go of pain that had tied my heart down for many years. I faced many struggles at a young age that ended with me falling into pieces, like a jigsaw puzzle knocked off the counter. But, my mother was always there to pick up my pieces and start all over. Looking back, I never understood what she meant when she would say, “Just wait, you will understand why when you have children of your own.” I would have never said this then, but now I admit, she was right on everything. I am so blessed to still have her in my life and my children’s lives.
However, on page 2, Billy’s response to one of the Landlady’s unwholesome actions was “the old girl is slightly dotty”. Besides, on page 3, he reconsidered his previous thoughts shown by the dialogue “but she was also quite obviously a kind and generous soul”. This represents Billy as simple-minded, though Billy tried to look more mature than he actually was, wearing the suit he still didn’t pick up any signs the Landlady was showings and she used this to her own advantage. Dhal uses dialogue to portray how naïve Billy was and how silently cleaver the Landlady was. Dahl uses descriptive language to reconsider the reader’s
It’s is amazing that the facts he refers to from the 19th century that were actually accepted as scientific evidence are laughed at today. Nobody in today’s world would say that women are less intelligent then men, simply because their brain is smaller in size. Henrik Ibsen’s play A Doll’s House also shows this how women were seen, however Ibsen also helps to change the way that women were perceived. The story centers around a young girl named Nora Helmer, who is constrained to society s view of her gender’s role, and desperately tries to find herself in the midst of it all. In the attempt to save her husband s life and pride, she secretly borrowed money to use for his recovery from a deadly illness.
* Mother's Day... a time for warm thoughts and fond memories, for expressing the feelings and words that often go unspoken, for letting those special people in our lives know that they are loved and appreciated - always. * Somehow we always say the least to those we love the best And hope our thoughts are understood. Although they're unexpressed - That's why it means so very much, when days like
