The book I chose for my independent reading project is called “Burned” by Ellen Hopkins. The project I chose to do is a book box because the book I’ve read has a lot of items that correspond to the events and characters in my book. The items I have chosen from my book is a journal, a diaper, a ring, a cell phone, and a pregnancy test. The first item I chose was a journal. The reason I chose this item is because in the book, the main character Pattyn Von Stratten used a journal write down all her troubles because her librarian Ms. Rose told her it would be good for her.
The representation of home in Wuthering Heights According to experts in domestic management, a safe, comfortable and honorable home was very important in British Victorian morality and middle-class respectability. (Towheed, in Watson and Twheed (eds), 2012, p.339).This essay will concentrate on the representation of home in Wuthering Heights by comparing the two houses mentioned in the novel, focusing mostly on Heathcliff’s home and the ideals he adopted compared to Victorian domesticity. The poet Coventry Patmore in his poem The Angel in the House (1863), he created an archetype of Victorian womanhood which was pure, chaste, devoted to her husband, and sympathetic as a part of Victorian ideas about domesticity. (Towheed, in Watson and Twheed (eds), 2012, p.340) Moreover, Ruskin set out his idea of the duties of Victorian men and women inside the home. For Ruskin, the women were homemakers and helpmates to their husbands, who would return from work surrounded by a loving domestic environment.
Aunt Fay writes to her niece Alice in the hope of teaching her about Austen and her writing and what better way to do that than by direct reference to Austen’s most successful text, Pride and Prejudice? Weldon in turn helps the actual reader understand Pride and Prejudice by commenting on the characters’ behaviour and the plot by giving her personal opinion, as well as identifying typical language features and explaining why Austen is valued today. She expresses empathy for Mrs Bennet which encourages the reader to reconsider their own opinion Her use of first person language tells the reader that they are reading a biased opinion, but also helps the reader trust Weldon as she is speaking
. What is Juliet’s relationship with her mother like at the beginning of the play? Consider the purpose of her conversation throughout, to what extent she knows her daughter and her views on love (look carefully at the form of Lady Capulet’s speech about Paris – it is very much like a sonnet. Think about why she might talk about him in this way) In Act 1, scene 3 the relationship between Lady Capulet and Juliet is a typical Elizabethan family relationship between a mother and daughter. Juliet is being a dutiful child by formally speaking to her mother at all times, such as when the Nurse calls her and she addresses Lady Capulet as ‘Madam’.
IN the early part of her marriage she tried to stay true to the Confucian gender code of women in her house. She said “A women could not go out of the court we women knew nothing but to comb our hair and bind our feet and wait at home for our men.” (Pruitt, p. 55) As time went on she decided to go out and find work to support herself and her children. She worked until her youngest son was married, which was typical Confucian family. Ning followed the Confucian beliefs on a primary duty of women saying “It is the destiny of woman and her happiness to carry on the life stream.” (Pruitt, p. 153) Ning did not follow the rules regarding women
As an Iraqi women living in El Nahra, in 1954 and having befriended an American woman such as Beeja, I would have learned a great deal about the customs of American women; however, I would still struggle with understanding the customs of the United States and the reasons why they do what they do. First off, Iraqi woman are hard-working, devoted wife’s and mothers, good cooks and housekeepers, quiet, obedient companions to their husband, and our reputation for fidelity is un-reproachable. American women do not care for their own mothers, can’t cook, can’t clean, are not obedient to their husbands, and are very provocative. They don’t even where the Abaya and an “uncovered women is an immoral women” (pg. 6).
Abigail Williams, an orphan in the story, would work as a housekeeper to assist Elizabeth Proctor. This shows how young women were treated in “The Crucible”. Women in the 1950s and women in “The Crucible” play the same roles in society, for the most part. In the play, women performed the duties of being a homemaker, mother, wife, and pure women. In the 1950s, women would rarely have jobs but mostly be a stay at home mother.

Száva Adél Tar Ms. Martin IBP English 2011 – 02 – 19 Commentary on The Handmaid’s Tale The following extract is from The Handmaid’s Tale written by Margaret Atwood, which shows the readers that the female narrator lives in a society where some people are restricted and controlled by others. In these four paragraphs, the narrator gives a brief description about her room and its simplicity, provides some indirect explanations towards why the room is lacking dangerous and harmful features and distinguishes the space between the “we” and the “they” that aren’t categorized in the passage. This is all significant because the narrator’s first person gives insight to the woman’s state of mind, whereas it becomes evident that she, as an individual, is against her conditions but cannot do anything to get out of it. In The Handmaid’s Tale, M. Atwood achieves the creation of an imprisoned perspective, of being controlled and of not being free by setting up the two personal pronouns “we” and “they” within the first person narration, with the setting, and the use of simple verbs. The most prominent feature of the passage is the distinction among the “we” and the “they”.
In African American tradition the elderly women continue the tradition to pass on cultural meaning, such as the value of children and self-reliance, to succeeding generations (Peterson, page 213). The “wise” women continue to enlighten people about the importance of human relationships. In the social sense grandparents try to build a relationship though the care of children. Between 1979 and 1980 the African American population in the Pacific Northwest continued short periods of fieldwork. In that time family matters were defined culturally as “women’s area of concern” (Peterson, page 214).
