In my opinion, I found this book to be decent. While it some interesting moments, such as the relationships she has with all of her friends and how she tries to maintain them. This is a book that is based around female problems and issues which is one reason I didn’t like this book as much as I could of. The book is well- written and can be enjoyed to a much wider degree by the female
Compare and Contrast A Rose for Emily and Trifles Both of these stories are in the same type of mystery style. They have an unpleasant but interesting sense about them. When reading A Rose for Emily, I knew there had to be something shocking in the end. The way the towns people dished the dirt about Miss Emily was interestinf. They seemed to only pay attention to her.
Angelou created easy outlets for people in struggle. She gets guidance from the heart and her words lead people from pitfalls in life. Her words will forever be relevant; her life is to admired. Times do change but young women throughout the years have one thing in common, the desire to fulfill their dreams without carrying the burden of past hurts. Angelou is more than a voice for today’s young women; she is also an inspiration and a blessing to those who read her work.
I believe this technique is extremely effective to getting a point across because it hits the reader so hard that one they can’t put the book down and two they feel compelled to do something about these repulsive and horrifying events and customs. Kristof states in the introduction… “Many of the stories in this book are wrenching, but keep in mind this central truth: Women aren’t the problem but the solution, the plight of girls is no more a tragedy than an opportunity” (Kristof xvii). Furthermore these stories presented in the book are difficult to read but they are placed in the book in order to evoke deep emotions. These emotions will motivate individuals to step up and help women become a solution and an opportunity to better the
The project of finding a voice, with language as an instrument of injury and salvation, of selfhood and empowerment, suggests many of the themes that Hurston uses as a whole. Zora Neale Hurston draws attention towards her novels because she uses black vernacular speech to express the consciousness of a black woman and to let the reader know exactly how statements are said. This use of the vernacular is particularly effective in Their Eyes Were Watching God. Their Eyes Were Watching God exposes the need of Janie Crawford's first two husbands for ownership of space and mobility with the suppression of self-awareness in their wife. Only with her final lover, Tea Cake, who's interest orbit around the Florida swamps, does Janie at last glow.
This novel teaches some important and valuable life lessons that can change the way people are viewed, and help one to understand why they behave the way they do. The author, Nancy Osa, did a flawless job of subtly inserting life lessons as to not bore the reader by droning on and on about life and such. Thus, the novel, Cuba 15, is well written and a great book. The multicultural element in my novel made it both enjoyable and challenging. It was quite enjoyable in the fact that I learned new information about Cuba and quinceañeros, I also learned a lot about how different people react to different environments and cultures.

To summarize this indepth story on being criple is simple. In my own opinion you have to be a strong individual. At first it only started off as being thought for the narrator to write essay on criple. It took her to almost hurt herself to do so. The story is very interesting because she starts off by telling what criple mean to her as a individual.
This accident caused Alice to transform from the happy, self-confident eight year old she was into an isolated depressed adolescent who retreated into reading stories and writing poems as an outlet. This escape made Walker more conscience of other people and their feelings, and she rose from the despair that her disability caused her to become a leader and the valedictorian of her high school class. (African-American Writers: A Dictionary) Overcoming the isolation caused by her disability and the civil rights era gave Walker a perfect recipe for an in-depth novel about the alienation of a black woman in the beginning of the century. Celie is introduced to us as a victim of abuse, from the very first letter she writes. Celie’s only form of communication with the outside world is her
In addition to the style of writing, the point of view in which the story is told also contributes to the list of differences between the two short stories. ‘A Rose for Emily’ is told in first person omniscient. Meaning, the story is written using first-person words such as ‘our’ or ‘we’ but is also aware of the thoughts and emotions of the people of the town that encompass ‘we’ and ‘our’. In contrast, the thoughts and
