Different cultures have all engaged and written great poetry using the idea of repetition, but each culture uses it to show a different meaning or purpose in the speech. Among the most interesting cultures that vary in their usage of repetition are the Native Americans, the Spanish, and the Japanese. In poems from these cultures we see the use of repetition reflect each of their unique histories, values, or perception of the world. In the Native American poems, anaphora is used in a specific way that is rooted in their history; before writing had developed, oral tradition was the primary method to pass on the tribe’s history, beliefs, and lessons. In these oral traditions the tribe leaders or story tellers would repeat lines of stories in order to make important concepts stand out; the repetition also gave the stories a song like quality that made the lesson easy to remember.

I think that she could've left for three reasons; Her childhood was not good, her father was an alcoholic and treated both Eveline and her mother with disrespect and cruelty, as well as her being forced to take care of the family when her mother died. My first reason that Eveline could've left was because of her terrible childhood. In the story Eveline is described as poor and probably does not have a very comfortable life. Eveline's struggle for money is constantly mentioned in the story. There are very specific details that show how miserable her life is.
