The New Girl

...The New Girl Af Marc Mitchell Johannes 1u. To believe in yourself, and believe in your own will, may not always be as easy as it sounds. The effects that a person you look up to, can have on your own acts, are not to be underestimated. In “The New Girl”, our narrator experiences that these effects can result in a forever lasting knot. You can always regret what you have said, but can you live with it? “The New Girl” is a short, simple story, which brings up some themes we all know about, and feelings we may have experienced on our own. Friendship is a big theme in the story. The narrator clearly looks up to Allison (l. 8-9), but it seems like their relationship has certain problems. Apparently the narrator does not believe, that they really liked each other (l. 11-12). They just played together, back then. Allison is a little older than the narrator (l. 6-7), which makes him a mix between a good friend, and a younger brother to Allison. It seems like they don’t really care about each other, as actual good friends do, but just spent time together, because they have nothing else to do. This is not a great starting-point for a friendship, and the narrator confirms that it did not last long, as he points out that he “(…) never spoke to Allison after my family left Prospect Street (…)”(l. 84-85). Marc Mitchell’s style of writing is very simple, which makes it easy for the reader to capture the meaning and message of the story, rather than wondering about what each......

It is a collection of poems that tell the story of seven women of color and how their lives interconnect. The play deal with deep subject matter such as rape, abortions, domestic abuse, and faith, as is delves into the lives of these women. The play ends as all of the women come together with an empowering scene about the strength in womanhood. How do struggles, specifically ones imposed on women such as rape and domestic abuse, create strength and empowerment that would have never been attained without enduring such life experiences? In For Colored Girls, all of the women find strength in each other and faith in order to overcome their individual struggles and find strength to continue on with life. They become stronger individuals that they once were and that strong power that they now posses is from believe in themselves and their ability to persevere.

Analysis of Mean Girls

...Reflective Analysis Caddy soon discovers that surviving in the African jungle is very similar to surviving the jungle that is her high school. On Caddy’s first day of school at a regular high school after being homeschooled her entire life she realizes how closely people’s behaviours resemble that of animals in the jungle. Many people can relate to the way she felt entering this new world as everyone has been in such a situation. Perhaps not to this extreme but I was once the new girl desperately trying to find my place in a new atmosphere. Caddy’s journey can also be related to recent recruits adapting to a new work environment, unknown to how things regularly go about. One of my jobs provided me with an outline of normal office habits; casual Fridays, on birthdays there are potlucks, the outline even provided me with some of the regular office language, short forms for certain documents, etc. This was a map to help me familiarize myself and integrate with greater ease. Unfortunately Caddy did not have this luxury, as many people don’t. She is forced to figure it out for herself. This hardship of adapting can easily lead us to not portraying our true selves to potentially avoid being shunned as an outsider. There are many stereotypes integrated into the movie. When Caddy is introduced as a new student from Africa the teacher welcomes an American black student instead of her. People easily believe her when she tells them that in Africa everyone can read Swedish, which......

Only 2 kids live in the block, Allison and the narrator, so they have to be friends whether they like it or not.

Girl, Interrupted Character Analysis

...Character Analysis: Girl, Interrupted    The secondary main character within the film Girl, Interrupted (James Mangold, 1999) is Lisa who is played by Angelina Jolie. Lisa is a rebellious patient of Claymore Mental Institution in Massachusetts circa 1960. She is considered a sociopath in the medical field, and proves so by consistently pushing the boundaries of Claymore Institution in numerous ways. Lisa was identified as a sociopath due to her inability to feel remorse or sadness regardless of her behaviour. She frequently disobeys the staff as well as maintains a toxic relationship over the patients in which she controls and torments them for her own enjoyment. Despite her many destructive acts and rule-breaking attitude, Lisa is considerably unpredictable as she can also be kind and motherly to the patients. Lisa is an attractive caucasian female with blonde, choppy hair and grey blue eyes. She has a track record of running away from Claymore, where food supply is presumably low, which explains her look of malnourishment. Lisa has a tall and lanky frame in which she is around 5'7 and weighs 130 lbs. Lisa has a distinctive personality, as it is controlling and overpowering in comparison to her fellow patients. Although Lisa tends to act in such a cold manor that she seems inhuman, she does have a breakdown as she is confronted with her faults, which proves that despite her title as a sociopath, she does hold human emotion regardless of how much she desires to suppress......

The New Girl Analyze

...Analysis and interpretation of “The new Girl” Allison is a girl at the age of ten, who lives on Prospect Street with her parents and likes to play with Barbies and listen to Hall and Oates. Prospect Street is a street placed in a lower middle-class white neighborhood, where most of the houses are about seventy years old. In the start of the story the environment is described: It’s a hot day, the sun is shinning and everything is burning. The burning part is a symbol of this intense conflict, which is about to appear later in the text between the new girl, the narrator and Allison. Allison’s mother does not like the new neighbors, it seems. She is prejudiced against them, because of the color of their skin. She thinks that they are going to ruin their house, meaning that the new neighbors will make the prices of the neighborhood fall, because no white person wants to share the same street with a ‘nigger.’ Allison has of course inherited the same hatred towards African Americans. You see that clearly in the text; “I said get out of here, nigger, or I’ll beat you up.” As for the narrator: he doesn’t feel that same spitefulness that Allison and her mother have for African Americans, at all. I am by the way assuming that the narrator is a boy, from the three facts that the narrator doesn’t share Allison’s interest in Barbies, they have been pretending to be married and then there is the fact that they are already friends, yet the narrator is wondering if she likes him.......

Feather Girls - Analysis and Interpretation

...Feather girls - analysis and interpretation The short story 'feather girls' by Claire Massey, from 2010 is a very imaginary and well written story, which leaves you behind with the sensation of unknowing. I believe the text has a very deep meaning to it, which I will try to find. In the short story we meet a man called Bill. We can see from the text, that Bill is old "A collection of regulars cluttered the bar, all grey haired men similar age to him". Bill has a wife, who he does not see very often, as she has "flown off" by herself, as their children were grown. In the village, where the story unfolds it is common to give your wife a feather coat from feather girls, but Bill has fallen in love with a feather girl. The feather girl's name is unknown, but Bill and her have been seeing each other for a long time "All these years of going to meet her and yet still, every time, he felt like a lad. They have been doing the same thing over and over again, meeting each other at a local pub called the Hare and Anchor, eating vinegar crisps with salt "packet of salt and vinegar crisps. Here at the pub we are introduced to the landlady of the pub, Mary. Mary is the most interesting character in my opinion, because her curiosity about the couple is intriguing. Mary is described as stingy "Mary was stingy with the coal, still too early in the year for a fire whatever the chill in the air said". Mary is living in the past, and never throws anything away "Collections of one......

Close Analysis; Girl in the Mirror Context I Professor Rogers Close Analysis; “Girl before the Mirror” For this essay I chose a painting by Pablo Picasso called “Girl before a Mirror”, according to the research I had done, this painting is in connection to his mistress Marie- Therese Walter. It displays several view, depending on who’s interpreting the painting. Pablo Picasso became one of the greatest and most influential artists of the 20th century and the creator (with someone named Georges Braque) of Cubism. A painter, sculptor, printmaker, ceramicist and stage designer, Picasso was considered radical within his work. The poem that is showed in connection to this painting is called “Before the Mirror” by John Updike. This poem is the poets emotions, thoughts and views based on the painting. John Updike was an award-winning writer of fiction, essays, and reviews, John Updike has also been writing poetry for most of his life. He was inspired by his mother, who was also a writer. For me, “Girl before the Mirror’ is a painting that talks about reflections of one’s self or how we see ourselves versus how others see us even the duality of our natures. There are so many levels your creativity and critical thinking can go in regards to Picasso’s intent with this painting. I can see this particular Picasso painting in a philosophy class where people are wrestling or conversing what the exact meaning of this painting is. The painting is literally displaying a girl and she is pregnant, her stomach is......

New Girl

...Essay on "The New Girl" by Marc Mitchell "I have a dream that one day little black boys and girls will be holding hands with little white boys and girls." This quote was said by Martin Luther King, Jr., in his famous speech "I have a dream". Martin Luther King Jr. was a black man, who fought against both apartheid and segregation. His dream came true, as we live in a world where it is accepted by most to have different skin colour, a different culture and religion. The short story "The new girl" by Marc Mitchell, is a good example that children can be more accepting of others, but also how easily parents can affect their children's opinions. The story takes place in a suburb in Alabama around the 1970's, as the story is the narrators flashback from 20 years before the story was written, and the band 'Hall and Oates' was founded in the late 1960's, and it is mentioned that Allison has an interest in that specific band. In this story the narrator is also the protagonist as it is being told in a 1st person point of view. The narrator lived on a street by the name Prospect Street, in a "white lower-middle class neighborhood" (p. 22, l. 15.) In this story, there is the protagonist, Allison and the new girl, whose name we do not know. The protagonist was eight in the beginning of the story and was, together with Allison, one of the only children on the block, so they "were best friends by default." (p. 1, ll. 7-8). The two children spent a lot of time together, as it is written in...

The five girls, Kaethe, Alina, CJ, Sydney and Stephanie, in Popular Girls have very few physical descriptions.

Analysis of Eye Socket Girls

...Analysis of Eye Socket Girls by Paula Bomer In the course of history, the ideal of a woman has changed a lot. In newer, postmodern times, the female body ideal has changed radically. With the technology advancing significantly in this period, it creates an even easier way of setting more focus on how the ideal woman should look. The medias, commercials and famous fashion houses are now defining what the perfect woman is supposed to look like. This often results in teenage girls starving themselves to loose weight, and tries to strive for this unachievable woman ideal. The story “Eye Socket Girls” by Paula Bomer takes this up to a postmodern perspective, where we follow an anorectic girl at a hospital. The time is hard to pinpoint exactly, but there’s some hints throughout the story. A TV, and the American actress Winona Ryder are mentioned when the narrator describes how obesity takes over “weak” High-School girls. This description indicates that the story takes place in the late 90’s or early 00’s. The female ideal at this time was to be as thin and bony as possible as described in the story “We look voraciously at one another. We envy the protruding bones of someone who is that much closer to not being here at all” (p. 112, l. 11-12) when she tells about the anorectic ward where she is hospitalized. The story takes place in an American hospital ward, where the only patients are anorectics. The story signifies that it is taking place in America, since the narrator is...

The New Girl

...Essay – One Friday Morning ”One Friday Morning” is written by Langston Hughes in 1950’s. When I was reading the story I couldn’t stop thinking about racism and difference between black people and white people and how the black people have to fight for them self all the time, back then but also now a days. The main character is Nancy Lee. She goes to school a white school, called George Washington High and she seems proud of being a Negro American. She also seems to be a calm and friendly girl, a girl that knows what she wants, and is following her dreams. I can see that because the last line in the text is “that is the land we must make” when I read that, I could see she is a real fighter and a girl who wants to change the country. The theme of the text is racism and difference between black people and white people, because the committee found out that Nancy Lee was black and then they changed their plans about her getting the “art scholarship of the year”. Analysis - composition: The text starts with in medias res, because we don’t get an introduction or a presentation. It is a chronological order, and the end is open. Because Nancy Lee could have done something and I think that it is obvious that she would, with the last words she is thinking. Story-teller: it is a 3.Person story-teller. I think the story-teller knows about Nancy Lee’s feelings, or maybe it is a person who knows her very well. And it is always this person’s point of view we see in the......
