Not My Business Ever since the dawn of civilization there has been leadership, and ever since the dawn of leadership there has been corruption. Not My Business is a tale of such corruption or rather a cynical comment on the topic. Niyi Osundare had strong feelings about the matter and speaks up about it in the form of a poem. In the poem, Niyi observes what we can only assume is a corrupt government dragging frightened children from their beds, oppressing the minorities in a real yet scary way. As a poet and as a citizen of such a society, Osundare feels inclined to take a stand against the oppression by making people aware of the problem and hoping they won’t turn the other cheek.
Cassie’s ghost appears that night and says to Lia “Come with me… Please”. This shows how conflicted Lia is as she is on the verge of life or death and whenever Cassie’s ghost appears we know Lia is struggling with self-control and that Cassie is guilt tripping Lia into following her to ‘cross-over’. Anderson’s use of this symbol has a significant effect on helping the readers to understand Lia’s mind. Lia is forced to dwell on the fact that she ignored Cassie’s 33 phone calls which shows how Lia is covered in guilt from not answering and whether she could have prevented Cassie’s death from happening. The repetition of the numbers 1-33 written out throughout the novel further develops the readers understanding that this is a fact constantly on her mind and how much Cassie’s ghost is affecting her.
In Faulkner’s “A Rose for Emily” the author uses setting to reflect the many developing sociopathic characteristics of Miss Emily Grierson.

Emily uses the death of her father and her sheltered lifestyle to her advantage by bully those around her into getting exactly what she wants. These attributes are shown her doorstep, in the parlor of her home, and her secret upstairs room.
Psychological maturation is a typical characteristic of Bildungsroman genre. At the beginning, Jane uses the knowledge she learns from the books to defend herself when she is angry: “‘you are like a murderer – you are like a slave-driver – you are like the Roman emperors!’” (Brontë 17). Her angry and chaotic emotions built up since she lost her parents and was adopted unwillingly by Mrs. Reed. Jane couldn’t find her place in this family. Her anger and desperation became more powerful each time Mrs. Reed’s family treated her not as a family member but more like a servant.
Case Study Journal The case study “Sharing the Secret” is a gripping examination of adults having to hide and secretly deal with their experience with incest. Molestation is horrible but incest takes it to a whole neither level, and this case study shows the hardships and tribulations that someone has growing up after being a victim of incest. The most aggravating part of the study for me was the fact that all of these women had been pretty much brainwashed by their attacker. It relates to the subject of Public and Private Selves in our class text book. These women, after being victimized, are under an extreme amount of mental turmoil and because of their age the girls aren’t well respected by adults.
Amanda Lenhart, who writes the opposing argument, provides the reader with numerous statistical information on teen bullying, even providing too much information on surveys of students and parents. Her opposing argument was full of survey results that lend toward the “YES” argument than it did to the “NO” argument. Amanda Lenhart is a senior research analyst for Pew Internet and I feel that she failed to convince the reader in her opposing view. In “Stalking Made Easy: How Information and Communication Technologies Are Influencing the Way People Monitor and Harass One Another”, Penny Leisring begins her argument with a story of a woman by the name of Randi Barber who was being stalked by a man from her church, Gary Dellapenta. Gary started out posting things about her on the Internet.
