Berries, Roots In the poem “Grandmother”, by Douglas Nepinak, the poet discusses the loneliness and struggle of a woman who does not know English which creates a barrier in communicating with her family. The change I had to overcome was difficult but it had to be conquered; moving to a new house, which meant having to wake up earlier than I needed to get to school in time.

I just know some things are better left alone.’ ‘What do you mean? That I shouldn’t find out what I can about my own mother?’ ‘What if—’ She paused and rubbed the back of her neck, ‘What if you find out something you don’t wanna know?’ " (Kidd, 100) Another controversial view studied by Emanuel states that Lily must confront the hardship of her mother’s death head on and that it may have a

She was already thinking ahead to the things she would do as an independent woman. “There would be no powerful will bending hers in that blind persistence with which men and women believe they have a right to impose a private will upon a fellow-creature. A kind intention or a cruel intention made the act seem no less a crime as she looked upon it in that brief moment of illumination” (Meyer, 2012, p. 15).
