    Weekly Assignment 1. It was difficult to find out who was the narrator of In The Time Of The Butterflies was, seeing as how the book kept switching from the viewpoints of each of the Mirabal sisters. Although the Mirabal sisters spoke firsthand of what happened, it seemed as if we were being told how they felt, but not from the directly from the sister. Finally, I thought back to the very beginning of the story and realized that the narrator of the book was the reporter who went to Dede's house

    Time of the Butterflies “Life is what you make out of it:  one can go through it and let things pass them by, or a person can actually go out and get what he or she wants in that life.”  These are common words repeatedly embedded into my head by my father, as maybe the same from one of your parent’s.  In the Time of the Butterflies is a book about sisters that fight to take their god-given right of freedom in the Dominican Republic.  To win this freedom, the Mirabal sisters had to give up their

    government of Iraq? Sacrifice becomes necessary to achieve social change when there is loss of personal freedoms, abuse of power, and physical abuse. This is demonstrated by the revolutions in Nicaragua and Haiti as well as the novel, In the Time of the Butterflies, by Julia Alvarez. When people are being severely oppressed and they no longer have any freedom, they are likely to sacrifice themselves in the hope of achieving justice.

    The main point of Julia Alvarez’s "In the Time of the Butterflies" is to show individual personality in each character. This book shows that the people involved in the revolution led personal lives and had feelings just like those of us who read about them. By telling about the characters’ families and personal issues, Alvarez draws her readers into the book and makes them feel for each character. Something that puzzled me was why the Mirabal sisters refused to leave prison. Minerva said

    Life Cycle of a Butterfly The life cycle of a butterfly is perhaps one of the most beautiful and astounding processes in nature. The four stages a butterfly goes through to become the beautiful flying insects are just as interesting as the vibrant colors and patterns on the wings of the various species of butterflies. The four stages are as follows: the egg, the caterpillar, the pupa, and the emergence of the butterfly. Each stage is vital to the development of the adult butterfly. Perhaps the most

    The Awakening and Butterfly Burning The summaries do not add anything to the paper and could (should) have been skipped. Given the thesis of the paper, I would have liked to have seen a discussion of the male / female conflict, and a more detailed discussion of the individual / society conflict.
