I shall never meet you, brother Not for years, anyhow; Maybe thousands of years, brother. Then I will warm you, Hold you close, wrap you in circles, Use you and change you Maybe thousands of years, brother.” The poem describes fire’s ability to warm as well as to consume, just as the relationships we see in the family, particularly that of Anna and Kate, can both nourish and destroy. Anna and Kate emotionally sustain each other, for instance, even as Anna undergoes painful medical procedures in order for Kate to survive. At the same time, Kate feels as time past and her disease over
She knew this about herself and was highly criticized for it. This means that she failed to be objective in several instances.A few good poems to use to capture her struggle with relationships might be these: "Mirror","By Candlelight" ,"Mary's Song". "Daddy" by Sylvia Plath is by right considered a magnificent poem about daughter's relationship with a father. Also it can also be read as an allegory of female yielding and final revolt in a men's world who have been responsible for all the disasters and wars
Cooper uses his many hardships he endured in his young adulthood as themes of his novels. He perhaps uses the loss of his sister Hannah, along with the events surrounding the capture and murder of Jane McRae (which was a nationally known conflict at the time) as an influence for Cora and Alice in The Last of the Mohicans. He presents these characters as delicate and vulnerable as were Jane, and Hannah (Taylor 314-315). Cooper being so emotionally attached to his sister possibly uses the tragic death of Cora as an ode to the tragic death of his own sister. This is a reoccurring theme in many of Coopers works, including “The Pioneers” which one could say center on Elizabeth Temple as thinly disguised reworkings of Cooper's sister's untimely death.
I'd get rid of a couple of the cliché or tired phrases such as "sticks to her guns" and "back on his feet." The phrase "curses like a sailor" is also a bit overused, but I thought it added a colorful touch to the description of Sue. In the first sentence of the essay, "that" should really be "who" since the relative pronoun refers to a person, and in the second paragraph, I find the logic of "because" in the second sentence confusing. These are all small issues, but the essay, like any essay, does have room for improvement. In general, however, Jill has proven herself a talented writer.
The constant use of "I" puts us right in the narrator’s head and allows us to empathize with her. Ironic Indirection If we took the narrator’s words at face value, we would believe that her husband is kind and loving, that she really is physically ill, and that women really do get trapped in wallpaper. All of this is questionable at best and mostly dead wrong. This is part of the fun of first person narration – you’re never quite sure if the narrator’s perceptions actually reflect what’s going on. The narrator's tone also clues us into her character – her uncertainty and hesitation at the start of the story, and her determination towards the
Veronica Lindquist English 2 5 March 2013 There are several ways a romantic relationship between two human beings can be flawed. One of the worst and most dangerous ways perhaps is for possessiveness, trust issues, misunderstandings, and in some severe cases, physical violence to be involved through fault of one of the partners. This is the case in Shakespeare’s Othello, between Othello and his wife Desdemona, which serves to show how Shakespeare was speaking out against abusive relationships and domestic violence. Desdemona and Othello did love each other, but Othello had abusive tendencies that were displayed through Iago’s plan quicker than they would have been had he not interfered, and Desdemona, the epitome of a woman and wife during the 1500s, allowed it and did nothing but try to serve her husband until her death. The marriage between Othello and Desdemona in Othello was, in fact, an abusive one.
I will also demonstrate how these conditions may affect each other. Ben’s primary chronic condition is anxiety disorder. His co-morbidity is lung cancer, which is a challenge to say the least in terms of providing holistic care to Ben and his family. This is a complex case and will be based on optimizing quality of life for Ben and his family. Because of Ben’s primary condition of anxiety, the diagnosis of lung cancer would be very debilitating for Ben and his family.
She wanted to teach me a lesson throuthat I have it so much better than others in the world and that I should pray, because people have it so much worse and not everybody realizes that. This book really touched my heart and brought me to tears. I found myself crying on the very first page because I could never imagine someone doing such things to their child. I really loved this book because it was a true story based on the author himself, which made every detail of David’s feelings have so much more depth than if it wasn’t a true story. It is a blessing that David Pelzer lived through this experience, and also that he was kind enough to share it with the world.
Assisted Suicide PHI 200 Steven Carter February 27, 2012 Assisted Suicide Dealing with a painful and a long terminal illness is hard on everyone involved especially the person whom this is happening to. Susan Wolf’s article, “Confronting Physician-Assisted suicide and Euthanasia: My Father’s Death”, was very emotional and expressed the changes a dying person makes as the pain and all the treatments become too much to handle, especially when it is determined nothing else can be done. If this had been one of my parents, I would have dealt with the situation the same way that Susan Wolf did. I had an aunt that suffered with colon cancer and I agree that the most important thing to do is to keep the person comfortable and do only
Anna sues her parents for the rights of her own body. The book got me thinking about certain morals and about what I thought was right. I think that is very sad that Anna feels, and was brought into this world just to save her sister’s life. Since Anna is the perfect genetic match for her sister, Kate, her parents force her to undergo many surgeries. It is basically just giving up her life just so her sister can survive.
