    The Help Essay

    • 1056 Words
    • 5 Pages

    Through written words or ones spoken on a screen, The Help by Kathryn Stockett is a very thought provoking story. The controversies brought up throughout the storyline push us to ponder the rights and the wrongs committed throughout history. Another way to look at the story is through the characters, their relationships, and their feelings. In both the visual representation and the written version of The Help we are able to view these characters intertwine their stories with each other, to create a novel that they could be hung for. Both representations allow us to feel as if we are in Mississippi, sitting next to Hilly at bridge club, sneaking to Aibileen’s to tell our story, we can even feel the pain of Mae Mobley when Aibileen is forced…

    The Help, by Kathryn Stockett, is a book that can really -help- you to see what America was like during the 1960s. Stockett writes about Jackson, Mississippi telling stories about the Help and their white bosses. I would recommend reading this book for two main reasons: The cultural insight, and the pure joy of reading this book. The Help dives right into the heart of southern cultural, especially that of Civil Rights. We have characters like Hilly Holbrook, set that the separation of…

    The movie “The Help” is based on the book which I have never read even know I bought it. The only thing I know about book was the basic facts which is that it was told by the black women who were maids in the 1950s and 1960s. But I knew it was written and published by a white woman. That is all I can say about it. And I’m glad, because it gave me very few assumption to go with. Before I go on I won’t be laying any spoilers here. Because when people do that, I want to kick them in the butt.…

    Book Summary: The Help

    • 805 Words
    • 4 Pages

    The Help Questions The main character of my book was Aibileen Clark, a black maid working for a white family in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi, and she was a dynamic character. Throughout the story, Aibileen was trying to get over the recent passing of her son, Treelore, and she was wary of her boss, Elizabeth, and the other white women in Jackson. The treatment of the help is poor, and they do not have a say in the community. This all changes when Skeeter, a recent college graduate, comes to…

    • 1840 Words
    • 8 Pages

    Asking for help is something that has always been a difficult task for me. As a social worker in the making, it is always hard for me to understand why individuals in need have a problem with seeking help or support, when I have the same difficulties. I never paid much attention to this, but its an eye opener now that I’m thinking about a time in my life where I needed to ask for help. Some would classify me as being prideful, but I would not identify myself as such, nonetheless very…

    If someone was wanting to read a book that had words so powerful, almost offensive to some, and brilliant to others, one may suggest The Help by Kathryn Stockett. It is a novel about a white woman in 1960s Jackson, Mississippi, attempting to do something no one ever has before; write a novel about what it’s like for black women to work for white families. Although Stockett never meant for the words on the pages to be offensive, they did have a purpose. She used this novel to reflect her own…
