  • The Forbidden Joy Of Independence In The Story Of An Hour By Kate Chopin

    The Forbidden Joy of Independence In the short story of Kate Chopin “The Story of an Hour” she shares a story about a woman named Mrs. Mallard with heart trouble who finds out her husband has been involved in an accident and died. She is in disbelief and later realizes that it is a new start for her to actually have freedom, but then later finds out her husband did not die and she dies of a heart attack. The author shows the process of her disbelief turning into actual relief by describing the scenery outside of her home. The author uses imagery, symbolism and irony to develop the theme of the forbidden joy of independence throughout the story. With this in mind, the author’s use of imagery throughout the story was substantial in showing how the woman was imagining her life ahead of her. She began by describing “the new spring life” and “the delicious breath of rain” that shows how beautiful it is outside and that there is more to come (476). “There was something coming to her.. she felt it.. reaching towards her.. she was beginning to recognize this thing that was approaching her to possess her, and she was striving to beat it back with her will” (476-77). [Make sure you integrate your quotes into your writing.] This “thing” that was coming is the freedom that woman back then aimed for and wanted to obtain, she did not want to feel happy that her husband has passed away but could not resist the relief of the new opportunities she had. She felt the thirst of wanting freedom…

  • Personal Experience: Beauty Queen Of Leenane And All My School

    First, a confession: Prior to taking this class, I was not attentive with understanding the requirements, so I will not pretend otherwise. As a student who didn’t enroll in college until my mid-thirties for reasons besides desire or ability to learn, most classes I’ve taken thus far have been very interesting to me. This one I must say, had me challenged, but not in a way I enjoy. Within my professional development, I have worked in operations and logistics for nearly two decades, but lack…

  • Psychoanalytic Reading Of D. H. Lawrence's The Rocking Horse-Winner

    stereotypes can go well beyond the story and truly have an effect on all the readers that read it. Not only that, but it is evident that Valdez knew this could happen and in doing so created something very spectacular with all the stories that he wrote in the regards of stereotypes. On the other hand, “The Rocking-Horse Winner” is on a different end of the spectrum. In this story, it can be seen how greed is a truly evil thing and how it can destruct a family. In his article “Allegory and The…

  • My Inquiry Project

    family we have grown up hearing that anything less than an A isn’t good enough. I don’t blame my parents for pushing my siblings and I, but this standard has been engrained in my mind since day one. It might take a little more work than expected to allow myself to take risks and mistakes in that area. Especially because it not only means a lot to myself, but also to my parents. But the work towards an optimalist state is never over. And I need to learn how to let life takes it path, and not…
