Lessons from Little Rock by Terrence Roberts, A Brief Chapter Analysis

- I Really enjoyed reading this book and following the interesting and inspiring life of its author, Terrence Roberts. The lessons that Roberts presents are for the most part organized chronologically in the book, starting with the Crystal Burger incident and ending with events from his experience a professor at UCLA. Each chapter contains one or more lessons, drawn from his life experiences and commentary, with invaluable information in each. In chapter 14, “Lessons from the Barbershop and Lawn-Mowing Clients”, Roberts discusses how his childhood business, when he was enrolled at Dunbar, was negatively impacted when it became known that Terrence was a member of the Little Rock Nine....   [tags: terrence roberts, Crystal Burger inciden]

Michèle Roberts’s The Looking Glass

- Michèle Roberts’s The Looking Glass The understanding of history as a linear and unproblematic narrative, dominated by kings and queens, warriors and heroes, has long been denied by women writers. As Linda Anderson argues, these events ‘take on a different meaning, a different configuration when we begin to see through them – in both senses – to women’s concealed existence in the private sphere of family and home’ (Anderson, p.130). Women have little place in traditional linear history and have come to deny its authority and question its dominance....   [tags: Michele Roberts Looking Glass Essays]

Invisible Alligators by Hayes Roberts

- The children’s literature piece that I examined was Invisible Alligators by Hayes Roberts. In my analysis of this piece I set out to discover the main themes of this story and how they can be utilized in teaching children morals and life lessons. This topic question is significant as nearly all stories especially those aimed at children have an overarching message that is meant to be perceived by the reader. The story of the Invisible Alligators is the tale of a monkey named Sari, who experiences a terrible day filled with troubles....   [tags: children's story analysis]

The Reef by Nora Roberts

- ... This theory aims at eliminating male supremacy to achieve gender equality. Globally, females are portrayed as the subordinate gender; such sexism is what the feminist theory criticizes. Nora Roberts, in her history of novel writing, has neither ever declared herself as a feminist nor have any of her books been declared as ‘feminist books’. This is very obvious in this novel of hers because she portrays both genders just as society views them: males the superior, females the subordinate. From the feminist’s viewpoint, there can be said to be evidence of patriarchy and male dominance in this text....   [tags: romance and suspense novels]

Barbie, By Barbara Millicent Roberts

- Although recently there have been some action being taken upon this issue, children toys have always seemed to be gender specific. For example, little boys are expected to only play with “masculine” toys such as action figures, toy cars, etc. and little girls with “feminine” toys such as baby dolls, kitchen sets, etc. These toys play a significant role in our society in shaping the way children are thinking beginning from a young age. However, of all the controversial toys, Barbie seems to take the cake for young girls....   [tags: Barbie, Mattel, Bild Lilli doll, Ruth Handler]

Barbara Millicent Roberts: Barbie

- ... Eileen Zurbriggen, a professor of psychology at University of California, comments on the effects that playing with Barbie has on girls’ ideas on careers: "Playing with the Barbie suppresses their ideas about their own possible futures, but their ideas about the boys didn't change” (qtd. in Alter). It is true that Barbie has all of these fancy things, but Barbie is a hard-working girl who has had a collection of different careers. Another reason why people believe that Barbie isn’t good for children to own is that Barbie has a bad image, an overly sexualized and unhealthy image that subconsciously promotes girls to match her....   [tags: controversial toys, female stereotypes]
