Appearance Versus Reality in Katharine Anne Porter's He

- Appearance Versus Reality in Katharine Anne Porter's He So many memories came to my mind while reading this story. I grew up in a family (or at least one side of that family) who always cared and worried about what other people thought. Most obviously, the short story, "He," by Katharine Anne Porter is about appearance vs. reality and living with a disabled child. But I also believe the story is about life, the hardships of life, poverty, the innocence of children, the trust children put into their parents, the gossip of small towns, the resentment and bitterness of the hardships of life, being a mother, rural life, denial, guilt, and compassion....   [tags: Katharine Anne Porter He Essays]

Anne Bradstreet's Poem

- Anne Bradstreet's Poem "To my Dear and Loving Husband" Anne Bradstreet?s poem, ?To my Dear and Loving Husband. presents a beautiful love theme. "Of ever two were one, then surely we" (1). This quotation is important because Bradstreet is pointing out that she does not feel as though she is one individual person. And one of the first questions that come to my mind is if Bradstreet was trying to make a point for all wives to be that way or she felt insecure about her own self.
