Afraid of people, and brought to the wilderness by her grandmother, she escapes the crowded manufacturing town she had lived in the previous eight years of her life. Everyone notices an improvement in her well-being but “as for Sylvia herself, it seemed as if she never had been alive at all before she came to live at the farm” (Jewett 1588). Sylvia had been unable to embrace society or make friends with her peers, and she still remembers with fear a boy, “the great red-faced boy who used to chase and frighten her” (Jewett 1589), from the crowded town in which she used to live. She befriends animals; not humans, and it is therefore when she initially hears a whistle on her walk home she sees it “not a bird’s whistle which would have a sort of friendliness, but a boy’s whistle, determined, and somewhat aggressive” (Jewett 1589). This whistle represents Sylvia’s fear of people in general, and the man who made it represents a part of the crowded town she had left as a child of eight.
However, I believe that her personal motive in the story was not trying to have an affair, but simply trying to have companionship and to have someone to talk to. Curley’s wife, being the only woman on the farm, feels lonely and is obligated to be a typical housewife that stays at home all day to cook and clean. However, Curley’s wife is not that type tamed woman that would sit still like that. She dreams of starring in movies and becoming famous. She had bigger dreams than just being a housewife and I think being the only woman on the farm stifles her.
The story the Rages of Mrs. Torrens was very spirited and empowering for women. Although she did clearly have a mental disease, and her behavior from time to time was unacceptable, but she lived live the way she wanted, and didn’t allow her community to decide what is ok and what is not. When the others would drive to the beach, she would take her family and picnic along the bank of the river. They didn’t have the money to drive far away just for a picnic, most people would just call their losses, not her she took her family, and didn’t care when people would drive by. People always feel superior when the put others down, and the easier the target the easier it is to put people down.
The sound sends her into a flashback of the time she and her family took a vacation to the Jersey Shore. During the vacation Andy experiences a quite embarrassing moment when her mother’s top slips off into the ocean. Her mother is so carefree and so comfortable with her body that she does not worry about the top at all. Andy feels humiliation from the experience and associates the sound of the sea as a headache, much like her dread of becoming a “girlie” girl. As the next day approaches Andy goes to fetch firewood and spots a deer.

The girl The short story “Boys and Girls”, by Alice Munro, explores a young girl’s experience of coming to accept her responsibilities and identity as “a girl”. Working with her Father in the fields and with the animals was hard work, but a place that the narrator felt at home. Her family’s expectations of her within the home itself -- accepting the unending responsibilities of keeping the home and family running -- made her feel confined and represented a world to which she was hesitant to become a part. This short story use symbolism to show how the girl feels and works through things. She compares herself to the foxes with their high wall and their ultimate purpose, and then the metaphor between the girl and Flora the horse; to the stories the “girl” tells at the beginning and at the of the story to the end.

Edie went to for Dr. and Mrs. Pebbles where she took care of the two children and cared for the home and the cooking. The plot is the dynamic element in fiction, a sequence if interrelated, conflicting actions and events that typically build to a climax and bring about a resolution (Clugston, 2010). The plot in “How I Meet My Husband” is how a young innocent farm girl waiting for a gypsy pilot to write her a letter. She never hears from him again but still manages to find love while maturing and learning a life lesson.
Environmental Friendly I chose the poem “Sarah Cynthia Sylvia Stout Would Not Take the Garbage Out” by Shel Silverstein. This poem is about a young girl named Sarah who lives at home with her parents. Sarah is always asked to do many chores but the one she cannot stand is taking out the garbage. In the poem Sarah struggles with obedience of authority by not listening to her parents and learns about environment responsibility through the acts of chores. Shel Silverstein uses repetitive rhyming, flowing word play, and outstanding figurative language to describe and show the readers that Sarah will do any chore besides taking the horrid garbage because of all the disgusting trash.
Out of the Dust Essay This dry and poor book is about a girl named Billie Jo who survives through many hardships during the 1930s in Oklahoma. Some of these hardships are constant dust storms, the death of important people, and no rain for crops to grow. On the bright side, Billie Jo loves to play the piano. It is her favorite thing to do, until she injures her hand. Later in the story, Billie Jo learns that it is better to live with a family, rather than running away and becoming a homeless and poor person.
