Her employers’ actions dehumanize her, and she strives to show she is a human rather than an object. Her suicide is Diouana’s way of expressing her emotions and voice. It is ultimately a way to show that she is a human and deserved to be treated as such. Her employers’ treatment of Diouana objectifies her, which plays into her representation of her as an object throughout both the film and the text rather than a human being.

    I named my journey to the USA as Rose Harbor because my mother’s name was Rose, and the promised land of America that she offered me was a harbor.

Even the little wood duck with its broken wings must fly again. On leaving her, I promised to her that I would live a good life for both of us. I vowed to overcome the…

    fulfillment. The author brings this connection into the light because it shows the literary eloquence of chapter 14. It reinforces the statement that Isaiah is a great communicator. The first point Hassler makes is that the restoration of Israel lacks a historical match (Hassler M. 2015, page 223). The prophet claims that the Israelites govern over their captors and receive rest when the finally reach the promised land. It is considered a momentous victory and return if we take the language…
