It is also true to a mother’s feelings, and a mother’s bond to her unborn child. Wright’s poem focuses on the different stages of pregnancy and motherhood. She describes the life-changing and amazing process of birth, along with the happy feeling associated with becoming a mother. There is nothing in this world that could ever compare with the joyful feeling of motherhood. Judith uses figurative language to help portray these two processes in a poetic, but best of all an artistic manner.
It reflects ancient cultures, how Jesus is shown as sitting at God's right hand. Before you were mine describes, in each stanza a little more of the image of the mother, each stanza is different, and this is effective, as each has it's own little story, and image. The author also reminds you in each paragraph, that the mothers child is not yet born, and it is only their imagination. The poem flows well, and she uses the title as the last phrase of the poem, 'Where you sparlkle and waltz and laugh before you were mine' - this is a very effective ending, and completes the poem well.

Dolores' therapist, Dr. Shaw, attempts to rewrite her childhood from the time she was in the womb on. He takes on the role of her mother (268). As her negative childhood memories are replaced by positive ones, Dolores gains a new sense of self-esteem and confidence. She loses all of her extra weight (269). Dolores funnels her energy into creative pursuits like Etch-A-Sketching rather than self-destructive behavior.
The powerful shifts in tone, diction, and imagery all serve to highlight the narrator's longing to for children that were never born. By addressing the children directly, the mother is able to bring the dead back to life; it is clear that although the narrator cares deeply for her children, because of her actions, the only thing she can do is reminisce of what might have been. Speaking from experience, repenting for earlier decisions, and suffering because of them, the poet-speaker is able to share her suffering with others and begin a healing process for herself.

Morrison’s prose enhanced with symbolic meaning often leaves room for various reader interpretations. While some aspects of the plot are fully developed, explained and interpreted by the author, others are merely alluded to so the reader can find their own significance in the image Morrison creates. Morrison’s reference to Sethe’s stolen milk conveys the importance of creating a bond between mother and daughter through nursing and shows the destruction caused when the bond’s broken. When Sethe arrives in Cincinnati after escaping from Sweet Home, Sethe’s reunited with her children. This reunion is bound by a vivid image of nursing, “she enclosed her left nipple with the two fingers of her right hand and the child opened her mouth.
Death is symbolized through the end of her ignorant days, her marriage to Torvald, and the life she had known. She is reborn through enlightenment, with a desire to discover and understand herself, before anything else. Whether physical or figurative, death adds a new dimension to Othello and A Doll House. Its presence gives the reader an eerie feeling and intensifies the depth of the plays. As readers, we wonder about the significance of death, and muse over what went on in the heads of Nora and, especially, Othello during the moment of truth.
Virginia Woolf, considered one of the best modernist writers, vividly depicts in her short stories that feminist writing can prevail despite her troublesome family history and mental illness, in the early nineteenth century, as shown in, "The Widow and the Parrot." Virginia Woolf was born on January 25, 1882 in Kensington, England. The daughter of a critic Leslie Stephen, Woolf was constantly under great pressure to make something of herself as, "Woolf's parents were extremely connected both socially and artistically" (Lazzari 300). Woolf made many great strides to begin her career as an aspiring writer including the creating of the "Hyde Park Gate News," a newspaper that documented her family's numerous activities. It was her fate to become "the daughter of educated men" as Woolf danced between literary expression and personal desolation in her writing works, intriguing her community with her innovating style (Mills 300).
It is through the development of plot and closure that a human gains the meaning of an event or text. Brooks brings up the notion of beginning, middle, and end. Like a text, humans have a beginning, middle, and end; from birth, to life, to death. Through this notion, our lives become less chaotic and more narratable. Our lives are full of never-ending cycles that repeatedly begin and end.
