First of all, what are some of the similarities and differences between these works? Like Jing-mei Woo, Rebecca does not learn the full story of her mother's past until her mother has died. The past of both mothers involves children born before the daughter to whom the story is told; these earlier children were left behind because of the circumstances in which the mother found herself at that time. In both these instances, the stories are told by others who wish the daughter to understand the mother more fully; both stories seem to give the daughter a better understanding of herself as well as of her mother. Story-telling may be even more central in The Joy Luck Club, with the stories told as lessons throughout the daughters' young lives.

Janie, however, believes that marriage is about finding love rather than financial security. The conflicting beliefs within Janie are included within the novel in order to develop the meaning of the work.

In the story of Beloved, Toni Morrison conveys many examples of symbolism to provide greater details about the connection between characters and their state of mind. Objects such as milk, colors such as red, and even characters such as Beloved play a crucial role in establishing a theme of self-forgiveness and rebirth, and give a more in depth description on the suffering and torture that the various characters endured throughout the novel. One of the main examples of symbolism in the novel Beloved is Morrison’s description and presentation of a mother’s milk and the act of nursing. Milk belongs to the mother but once it is given to the child it makes for a mother-child bond that Morrison weights when describing scenes of breastfeeding between Sethe and her children. Milk in the story can be viewed as a mother’s love for her child therefore implying that a lack of milk could symbolize abandonment.

As she grows accustomed to placing Annie as her mother and referring to her as “momma”, she develops trust and affection that places Annie in a hierarchy in Maya’s eyes. In this sense, her concept of motherhood is one that inspires trust based on strength of character and ability to offer comfort and assurance. Regarding her mother Vivian, Maya showcases trust when she asks her about the changes in her body and whether she could be a lesbian based on these changes or a lack thereof. Vivian further evokes Maya’s trust when she allows her to cut school when Maya does not feel like attending classes after she started working as a bus conductor. Another concept of motherhood as featured is that of strength where after her parents divorce, Maya’s mother is able to move on with her life and even support her daughter against her boyfriend, Mr. Freeman.
Although there are communication problems exist, the mothers sacrifice for the love not only for their children, but also parents. For instance, An-mei’s mother slices off a piece of her own flesh to put in her mother’s soup, hoping to cure her from the last gasp. In my opinion, l think the four mothers immigrate to America majorly because they have a vision of their children having a better future in the U.S. They hope their children to live happy, successful lives which is able to avoid making the same mistakes they made before. On the other hand, from the daughters’ side, many look forward into their own futures with apprehension about life decisions that need to be made.
