The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson For my independent reading project, I chose to read The Impossible Knife of Memory by Laurie Halse Anderson. Anderson was born on October 23, 1961 in Potsdam, New York. Through her early life, Anderson struggled with emotional stress stemming from the divorce of her parents. This struggle played out in her adult life, as Anderson divorced her first husband, Greg Anderson, and consequently suffered from psychological trauma. Despite this, upon meeting and marrying her childhood sweetheart, Scot Larrabee, Anderson channeled her emotions into novels.
Morality aside, she “[walks] through her husband as if he were a ghost” (26), completely disregarding his emotions. Another example of adultery in the novel is Gatsby’s relationship with the married Daisy Buchanan. He finally reunites with his dream girl after five years of separation, however, Tom eventually learns of his wife’s betrayal, “I stared at him[Wilson] then at Tom, who had made a parallel discovery less than an hour before…” (124) He is enraged at the news and sees no justification in Daisy’s actions despite his own unfaithfulness. Tom and Daisy’s disloyalty further projects their lack of respect and
It reveals that her son was killed at war and that she is unable to surpass through her grief. It shows that she is so overcome by her grief that she is unable to act normally in social situations and that everything she sees, she somehow links it back to her dead son.

Not everything in life will bring happiness, but with the help and support of loved ones, anybody should be able to find resolutions to their problems and move on with their lives. For Faye, she was on the verge of giving up hope because of extreme dissatisfaction with herself, but since she had the love and support of Kai, her worst fear ended with true
Most men wouldn't do that; they would get tired of it and leave or ruin their marriage. Both “the husband”and “the wife” knew that the wife was sick. One difference betwen Kai and the huasband their personalites. The husbands in both stories share the problems with their wives as a test of love. They also feel emotional since their wives cannot show their love fully due to the problems they are undergoing.
Granted, she plays no part in the political activism, but she does so much to ensure the quality of life of her sisters’ families. On the verge of insanity, she pulls herself together and says aloud to herself, “Courage! It was the first time she had used that word to herself and understood exactly what it meant” (Pg 199). At this moment, she finally realizes that her courage consisted of staying strong for herself and her family instead of selfishly running away. She no longer puts herself down for what she thought was cowardice in not joining her more active sisters in a fight for a greater cause.
In my mother’s case, she was struck on the left side of her car, impacting the left side of her head which gave her paralysis on her right side. Traumatic brain injury, (TBI) may result in life long impairments of an individual's physical, cognitive, psychosocial functioning, memory, speech, attention, reasoning, judgment, sensory, problem solving, and motor skills which severely impact the injured person's life, their families, and significant other. Family members are making decisions for their loved one that they never envisioned having to make. The majority of TBI patients will need extensive rehabilitation following their hospital stay. Rehabilitation can last months or even
I thought at this point that she was going to make a quick recovery because she’s trying to make the best out of her situation and enjoy everything she can about the room that she once hated. Another reason I believe she is so nervous and has a anxious problem is she just had a baby that she can not care for. She and her husband have a nanny to care for the
