The story begins during her childhood in Stamps, Arkansas, and as the story progresses, she goes through many experiences. These are the situations that influence the advice she gives in her interview with Linda Wolf. A major point she emphasizes in her novel is the need to forgive yourself, and to continuously rise above your challenges. Angelou’s advice from the interview could be applied to many different situations that occurred in her life and memoir. Throughout Maya Angelou’s entire childhood, she hated how she looked, and her entire being.
This is a very good thing. Because of her stories of her encounters of everyday life, we know three things: the Holocaust was real, the Jews were being persecuted, and that it was very hard on everyone that lived in Holland. Anne’s death was very sad, especially because in her diary, she talked about what she would do after the war was over, and all the things she wanted to do when she grew up. If she survived, I think she would have made less of an impact. Holocaust survivors are very rare these days, but Anne still remains, because of her published diary.
Kate Chopin then proceeds to take her readers on an emotional journey as the initially frail Mrs. Mallard allows her mind and her heart to explore life after Mr. Mallard. As Mrs. Mallard’s mind and heart are set free, the readers uncover an excited and independent woman very different from the Mrs. Mallard first introduced. When Mrs. Mallard is first introduced to the readers, she is presented as very frail and ailing. While Chopin clearly shares that Mrs. Mallard is struggling with poor physical health, the reader is also introduced to the idea that Mrs. Mallard may also be emotionally weak as shown in the text that reads “Knowing that Mrs. Mallard was afflicted with a heart trouble, great care was taken to break to her as gently as possible the news of her husband’s death” (496). Further supporting the idea that Mrs. Mallard was believed to be emotionally fragile was the presence of Mr. Mallard’s friend Richard.

After reading the entire essay, it is clear that the general topic of “On Being a Cripple” is to be content and proud of what you do or do not have. By not calling herself ‘disabled,’ she shows great respect for the fact that she is able to do many things. She does not always let her Multiple Sclerosis (MS) keep her from being herself on a daily basis. Although she admits to having her bad days, she is defiant in the fact that this disease is just a part of life. We all go through life.
“We all go through the same things-it’s all just a different kind of the same thing!” (194). Mrs. Hale feels connected to Minnie as an oppressed woman and believes that by helping her, she is helping all women. Mrs. Hale has a lot of guilt for not having been a better friend to Minnie and for not seeing her more often. She continually voices her deep regret for refusing to visit Minnie. “The picture of that girl, the fact that she had lived neighbor to that girl for twenty years, and had let her die for lack of life, was suddenly more than [Mrs. Hale] could bear” (194).
I began to read this book because of all the recommendations I have received on it. My friends, my sister, and my mother had all loved the book and the author so I decided to give it a try. By choosing this book, it gives others a sense of who I am as a reader, in showing others that I like to relate to the stories I read. In My Sister’s Keeper, I can relate to Anna’s love and hate for her sister.

I love how the author's writing style shifts depending on the different periods in her life. When she describes her drinking, the writing is as chaotic as her life; when reflecting on her sobriety, her writing becomes more fluid and coherent Groom provides hope for those suffering similarly as she draws upon the events that lead to acceptance, healing and her ultimate self-redemption. Though I cannot personally relate to what Groom experienced, I Wore the Ocean in the Shape of a Girl touched my heart and may provide the sort of inspiration for others with similar struggles to begin the path toward recovery. The details of Groom’s life are hard to keep track of throughout her story because of the lack of structure to the plot of the book We get an abstract impression of who she is, and a little understanding of why. The story is certainly sad throughout; the author keeps the tone almost dark with descriptors like “the color of
The story emphasizes how low-self esteem can affect person's life and it is a story of Alice childhood devastation. I love the way the Author started by telling the audience of her incredible childhood before the accident.

Secondly, she
