How do the connections between the two texts enrich the meaning of each text? When considered on their own, texts are constructed to create meaning and impart that meaning on a responder. However when two linked texts a considered together, their meanings are enriched as the responder can compare both texts, and take extra meaning from how the two texts differ and agree with each other, by evaluating which is more effective. Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice when read in isolation can be a simple bildungsroman narrative about the maturation of a young woman. However if the responder were to read Fay Weldon’s Letters to Alice on first reading Jane Austen, the connections between the two would shape and then reshape the responder’s understanding of both texts.
At the conclusion of her essay, Ozick personifies the essay as “she”, giving us a better idea of what an essay would look like or would do if it were a “she”. Ozick says “She may be bold, she may be diffident, she may rely on beauty or cleverness, on eros or exotica. Whatever her story, she is the protagonist, the secret self's personification”. She uses the title in her essay to say that the writing can be looked at as if it were an actual person. It embodies the writer, yes, but it also embodies a person.
An In-Deep Understanding of “Mother Tongue” In the essay “Mother Tongue”, Amy Tan accomplishes in three things simultaneously: she appeals the audiences emotionally by providing the pictures of the experiences between her mother and her; she shows the struggle of cultural racism that her mother and she go through without pointing out directly; and she puts some odd things into the essay and make it expressive. Amy Tan’s essay is very successful because she writes in her personal and “easy to read” style. Without the special English she uses in her writing, we may not easily understand and accept her ideas. Tan writes about that she has grown up with using different kinds of English: the English she learned in school and she uses in public, and the English she uses in speaking with her mother, which is described as the “broken” English. Moreover it comes to her sense that language is not only a communication tool but also an essential thing in enabling individuals to define their identities.
Get along now, take your schoolbooks and go. There’s nothing wrong with me.” (1388) When Granny Weatherall makes remakes such as that one; I can only assume that she is in denial of her state of mind and her health. Granny Weatherall was old but she was also very independent, and felt like she was able to care for herself.

The women use their emotions in order to figure out that Mrs. Wright did commit the murder. By the end of the play they decide to protect her because they seemed to relate to the abuse she endured in the household. The murder was justifiable because during this time period there was no such thing as divorce. Mrs. Wright was dying slowly because of her husband, and the only way to escape was to kill him the same way he killed her bird through strangulation. Mrs. Wright’s situation is comparable to a prisoner who is condemned to incarceration for life with no parole when they have never committed a crime.
They shared their kill, because Gale had a large family to fend for as well. In turn, Gale taught Katniss how to set snares and traps. She used these skills to provide fresh meat and nutritious plants for her mother and sister, and sold a portion to have money for other supplies. Without Katniss, the family would starve to death, because her mother was too depressed, from her husband’s death, to work and her sister was too young and delicate to participate in gathering food. 24 tributes are thrown into an arena and they are forced to kill or be killed.
Feminist writes Betty Friedan “No woman gets an orgasm from shining the kitchen floor.” “...women who 'adjust' as housewives, who grow up wanting to be 'just a housewife,' are in as much danger as the millions who walked to their own death in the concentration camps...they ate suffering a slow death of mind and spirit.” “When one begins to think about it, America depends rather heavily on women's passive dependence, their femininity. Femininity, if one still wants to call it that, makes American women a target and a victim of the sexual sell.” “Aging is not 'lost youth' but a new stage of opportunity and strength.” Naomi Woolf “Most urgently, women's identity must be premised upon our "beauty" so that we will remain vulnerable to
