  • Born Ready By Frida Kahlo Analysis

    about the difficulties she went through from being a young middle schooler to attending college at Harvard. She tells various situations of having been raised in Washington, D.C. and later on moving to Hawaii. At the beginning of the article Lawrence is riding home from school on a bus when a white man boards it. He is the only white person on a bus full of melanin and yet he feels the need to say the n-word. The aftermath was unbearable for young Kimiko, she wrote, “As I walk home from the bus stop that day, I struggle to make sense of the feeling this man has left with me, the smallness, the brokenness, the shame slowly growing inside me.” (Lawrence, 69). This indicates that one little event could instantly impact a child’s life. In this case, Kimiko is starting to feel shame about her own culture as a teenager. A person had to say only one word to change her mindset about racial identity. This was slowly breaking down all the thoughts she had about this perfect, non-existent world. Later on when she moved to Hawaii and attended high school, Lawrence would continue to hear the n-word from classmates all around her. Then there came a day when the pain she felt from that word was enough, in the article she says, “When I confront a classmate one day, telling him of the pain the word triggers inside me, he says, “What?

  • Bloom And Borges Sparknotes

    Moreover, while Bloom endorses the linearity of influence, and Borges highlights its fluidity, a third distinct perception emerges. Thompson (2014, p.114) utilises David Foster Wallace’s short story B.I. #59 as a framework from which to interrogate Bloom and Borges’ arguments, detecting, “throughout [Wallace’s] fiction, influence comes not only from the past (as in Bloom’s model), or from a future, anticipated text (as in Borges’s model) but also from the cultural present.” Consequently,…
