Aren’t you glad you live in a time where racism is no longer acceptable? In the novella, The Gold Cadillac, by Mildred Taylor, we meet an African American father who realizes that the safety of his family is more important than his need to exercise his rights.

Unlike the Wife of Baths, the fairy queen in Marie de France’s lais, Lanval, portrays a different kind of demeanor. She is elegant, beautiful beyond measure, and is rich to the highest degree. Although she sounds like the Wife of Baths at first, she does not say anything about herself. While the Wife of Baths proudly flaunts her appearance, the fairy queen lets others do the talking for her. Although both women are powerful beings, one is greater than the other due to the differences between them on how they use their power: one is an over extravagant sex machine, and the other has unworldly beauty and grace.

Dove Real Beauty Nikki Henderson MKT/421 February 11, 2013 Instructor: Phillip Spivey Dove Real Beauty Envision a world where beauty is a basis of self-confidence and optimism instead of apprehension and disquiet. So many women are fixated on their appearance and almost all of them have something they dislike about their body. Whether that dissatisfaction is with a chubby tummy, crow's feet, acne scars, hair that is too curly or not curly enough, or even a spot of cellulite, often times the imperfection, or perceived imperfection, is blown way out of proportion (Fox, 1997). The imaginary faults are time and again overstated in their own minds and are repeatedly perpetuated by the media (Fox, 1997). Friends and family may see someone that is perfectly normal, beautiful even, but as far that individual woman is concerned, the image of beauty the world proliferates has become restrictive and unachievable (Fox, 1997).
“Phenomenal Woman” begins with a stark comment saying that she is neither cute nor has a great figure to suit a model’s size. She tells that ‘pretty women’ often wonders where the secret of her success lies. Moreover when she reveals her so-called secrets to them, they refuse to believe her. She describes her secret saying that it comes from her confidence, the way she stretches her arms, the way she walks, the rhythm of her hips and also the way she smiles.

My step dad looked at it as a good idea, so we did just that. Steve's wife got out of the front seat and came in the back with me and Keisha. The van had a DVD player in the back seat so me and Keisha was watching "One Hundred and One Dalmatians" on the ride to Walmart. We were so into the movie we didn’t even notice the rush hour traffic on the way to route 22. As we pull into the parking lot Steve says kids don’t forget to fold the TV screen up.
She is like no other individual, different in every way, making her more complex and captivating. Jane Eyre appeals to me because although she is not beautiful, she is intelligent; she is not sweet but forgiving; and she is not affectionate but faithful. She goes forward even when all odds are against her. In Cinderella, Cinderella is a poor, unfortunate girl who has nothing; however, when she goes to the ball and sees the prince, he falls in love with her because of her beauty. Like Cinderella Jane is a poor, unfortunate girl when growing up.
