Composition Sample Paper on The Woman Warrior byMaxine Hong Kingston
Kingstone takes on different personas and voices hence it is hard to identify her character traits. In the entire memoir, her traits are at times rebellious, imaginative and curious, developing scenarios about her unnamed aunt, lashing against her mother at her teenage and cruel where she torments a quiet poor girl in school. Her character changes with time in that she grows from a child who is less talkative to a lady who finds anoutlet for her words on paper. She develops from someone afraid of her mother’s talk tales to an individual who peers into dark corners of her past. Most important is that she grows from an anguished and frustrated daughter to an independent teenager who composes a poetic memoir about her legacy. At the end of the novel, we learn that Kingstone can’t tell what is true from fiction. Her opinion is that the truth does not seema necessary matter, what is important is her memories and how she comes to terms with them.
The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz
Oscar is not a Dominican man; Dominican menaregood with their women which Oscar is not. In addition, they are interested in fantasy and sci-fi. In the novel, Oscar has traits of a Puerto Rican rather than those of a Dominican. The white children reject him due to his skin color. They do not understand his lack of interest in sports and women. Oscar does not fit in any cultural or racial group. In the novel, the characters belong to different nations and cultures, but Oscar is completely left out since he does not belong to any nation or culture. Oscar has special powers since he knows his ton and is a great writer. He is a vigorous and complex character, and his interests and ideals give him a chance to rise above negative elements of his customs and culture.
