Visits hardly ever happen, and visitors only see inmates through a Plexiglas wall. Inmates in disciplinary segregation are additionally hand-cuffed, shackled, and chained to a cement stump throughout the entire visit. Tamms inmates are not allowed to make any phone calls unless there is a death in the family, and even then may have to go on a hunger strike to get it. Even at ADX Florence, the federal supermax prison where convicted al-Qaeda terrorists are imprisoned, inmates are allowed to make one phone call each month. Criteria for placement at Tamms are currently so vague that every prisoner in the Illinois Department of Corrections is eligible.
The war affects Mariatu in a number of ways, it separates her from her family, it causes her hands to be cut off, and in the end causes a poor means of life for her and her new family. "I knew I had to get going, if not for me, for Adamsay who was still stuck in the war" When Mariatu is in Canada, she is content with not starting her education, however when she recalls to her personal experiences of the poor way of living in Sierra Leone, and her promise to Adamsay, she is reminded how she must begin with her education if she wants to help Adamsay. This is one example of how Mariatu's personal experiences motivate her to make the cultural transformation from a Sierra Leonean society to a Canadian society. The
You could feel Anna’s Anna’s grief and agony as she watches her two little boys die, while she herself remains healthy. She showed the strength of spirit when she continued to work for the Bradford's as well as at the rectory for the Mompellions. The independence and determination she showed was unusual for women of that era. Elinor teaches Anna many things as is one of the “wonders” to emerge from the plague year. She 'never let 'a minute pass without trying to better' her which leads to the changes that occur to Anna later on.
Year of Wonders “The plague will make heroes of us all, whether we will or no” ‘Year of Wonders’ by Geraldine Brooks explores the fearful and heroic way the villagers in Eyam respond to a crisis. As the plague outbreaks, the villagers are faced with immense challenges, as some are forced to show courage and compassion, whereas others are seen as selfish and uncharitable. Brook contrasts the strength of women and their heroic gestures to the weaknesses of men as the villagers are faced with great tragedies. It is made evident that the women in the novel are the powerful support network of the community. Anna Frith the protagonist of the novel is viewed as heroic as she is “a woman who has faced more terrors than many warriors.” (p.15) Anna is faced with the death of her husband Sam Frith and her children Tom and Jamie as she has “tended so many bodies, people I loved and people I barely knew” (p.8) This shows the beginning Anna’s strengths, as she deals with the bodies of those killed by the plague and shows her willingness and courage to help others.
With consistent and repeated experience of ‘the Plague’ not only does Anna’s behaviour change in accordance but her character also undergoes changes. When Anna is confronted with the Plague at the outset through her ‘lodger’, George Viccars, she flounders in reaction – ‘unsure’ of what to do because as the rector puts it ‘death is always hard … and untimely death harder than most.’. Such ‘grief’ and ‘emotion’ is also shown at this – ‘a death of a [stranger]’. But as the Plague continues to make its way ‘through the village’ Anna’s character becomes tempered as faced even ‘daily with’ death she begins to see it as ‘simply a thing of nature’ – gone are the ‘deep’ reactions to the Plague victims by the end of the text. This is clearly shown when she ‘tends’ the Mowbray’s ‘infant’ ‘fallen to the Plague’ – one of the last victims shown in ‘Year of Wonders’ – with a sympathy that exceeds to no more than a ‘thought’ of ‘the poor infant’.
