  • Name A Roselily
    802 words
    My reaction to Alice Walkers piece Roselily@ was quite interesting and confusing. Interesting in the way she wrote the wedding ceremony different from the main story. Confusing because you, the reader, have to read really carefully to see what the plot was. Overall, once I got the hang of reading her style it became clear to me how she felt and what the story was that she was trying to introduce. There was definitely a lot of symbolism in the story. First of all, the name A Roselily @ means A be...

    909 words
    As I thought of this article, many of the issues I have faced as a single Hmong woman in her mid-twenties came to mind.

    373 words
    Marriage Is Like A Prison Marriage is like a prison. It is a lifelong commitment that will hang on a persons shoulders forever. It can never be erased, and never be forgotten. Upon entering marriage, the crime is falling in love, the punishment is getting married, and the freedom is stripped from a person's very being. Falling in love is never considered a crime, but it is. Love is a rush of emotions that are felt about a person, just like the rush of emotions one feels before a crime is committ...

    Imagine yourself in Dublin in the early 1900's. Marriage was a very big thing in those days.
