    The poems Living in Sin and Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers, both written by Adrienne Rich surround women before the civil rights movement when gender equality was inexistent. In Living and Sin and Aunt Jennifer’s Tigers, gender inequality and the traditional marriage system are portrayed as discriminatory towards women. However, the differences in these poems show that their involvement and motivation to obtain gender equality play important roles in determining their happiness and freedom. To portray similarities and differences in her poems, Rich uses many extended metaphors and symbols, which make the reader feel what it was like to live as a woman during these times.…

    The short story “The Tiger’s Heart” by Jim Kjelgaard follows Pepe Garcia, a master of his village in pursuit of a tiger who has terrorized his village. Pepe has many motivations as to why he is hunting the tiger which include pride, money, admiration, and because he is a hunter. Throughout the story, Pepe puts great emphasis that owning a rifle makes a man the “master” of his village, yet when he needed it most, the rifle fails. You would think that a normal man would lose all motivation and drive at this point, but Pepe’s desire to succeed shines through and he overcomes this challenge. Men who are powered by strong desires can overcome any challenge and Pepe is a great example of this.…

    E.E. Cummings Poem

    The poem I chose for this paper is r-p-o-p-h-e-s-s-a-g-r by e.e. cummings. His poem, from my point of view, resembles the movements of a grasshopper. The format of the poem seems to move side to side which is the way a grasshopper jumps. I also believe that the use of capitalization is very important to the meaning of this poem. In the fifth line, all of the letters are capitalized which causes the words to become bigger and appear as if the grasshopper is in mid-air. In the last line, cummings ends it with a semi-colon, which signifies that the grasshopper is not done jumping.…

    In Maxine Kumin’s poem “Woodchucks”, the reader is led into a short tale of a woman whom is dealing with a family of woodchucks that are eating away at her garden. While this poem appears to be a simple tale following this woman’s methods to exterminating the pests, it rather is a poem that uses its speaker to stealthily showcase the potential that humans have for monstrous actions. The speaker, while appearing to be a sensible person turned deranged by the joyous feel of power and success, is a mere vessel to personify a hidden fiend lying within humans, in general.…

    "The Tiger" is one of the most beautiful descriptive animal poems that was ever written. The poet describes the tiger as a powerful and almost immortal being. "What immortal hand or eye could frame thy fearful symmetry?" He compares the creator of this wild beast with the creator of the innocent lamb. "Did he who made the Lamb make thee?" The poet describes the tiger as a living, breathing fire that walks brightly through the forest. "Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright, in the forests of the night." He is amazed at how God could have tamed fire and turned it into this magnificent creature. "What the hand dare seize the fire."The poet, William Blake, uses a lot of rhyme in this poem. Rhyming couplets are found throughout the poem. "What the hammer? What the chain? In what furnace was thy brain? What the anvil? What dread grasp, dare its deadly terrors clasp?" William Blake never uses the same rhyming sound twice. Every couplet has a different rhyming sound. All in all, the rhyming scheme is very well structured. Compared to other poems of the same length, there is a lot more rhyming. The rhyming helps the poem sound good and it allows the reader to enjoy the poem even more. For example: "Tiger! Tiger! Burning bright, in the forest of the night," but if you had, "Tiger! Tiger! Burning brightly, in the forest of the night," it doesn't sound as good.…

    Amy Chua’s “The Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother” had created a great controversy around the world. Many writers around the world wrote about her book and criticized her for her parenting methods. Most of the authors raised questions about Chua’s parenting methods. While reading journals, newspapers, and articles I noticed that most of the authors discussed how harsh parenting method is not the way to raise a child. When parents become strict to their children it can have a negative effect on them. Harsh parenting methods affect children both mentally and physically. Chua wrote that it is better to become strict parents in order to make them successful. I totally disagree with her. I think…
