954 words - 4 pagesModernism: Hurston and “HowItFeelstobeColoredMe”
Zora Neale Hurston’s writing embodies the modernism themes of alienation and the reaffirmation of racial and social identity. She has a subjective style of writing in which comes from the inside of the character’s mind and heart, rather than from an external point of view. Hurston addresses the themes of race relations, discrimination, and racial and social identity. At a time when it is not considered beneficial tobe “colored,” Hurston steps out of the norm and embraces her racial identity.
In “HowItFeelstoBeColoredMe,” Hurston breaks from the tradition of her time by rejecting the idea that the African AmericanVIEW DOCUMENT
1943 words - 8 pagesWhen society thinks of the term alienation, are they referring to the person ostracized by society or are they referring to the person who is psychologically separated from themselves? There are several different uses of this term. However, two uses seem tobe especially predominating: the sociological processes and the psychological states. In “The Revolver,” “Housewife,” and “Howitfeelstobecoloredme,” Bazan, Chughtai, and Hurston respectively, relate both the social and the psychological aspects of alienation with respect to fear, oppression, and identity.

Everyone has a story, a past experience that has built them up tobe the person
that they are today. In both James Baldwin’s “Stranger in the Village” and Zora Neale
Hurston’s “HowitFeelstobeColoredMe” the presence of conflicting views in their
stories holds a large impact on how they later develop as individuals. While Baldwin’s piece demonstrates the ignorance from society which is projected onto him from Swiss villagers, it shares both similarities and differences to the attitudes demonstrated in Hurston’s piece influenced by her surroundings.

HowitfeelstobeColoredMe – HEXAGON
"HowitFeelstoBeColoredMe", by the brave Zora Neale Hurston, expresses the author's vanity in her individuality. Instead of writing an essay of discussing racial inequality, Hurston creates a moving story that displays how different she.
Hurston entails her uniqueness with the very first sentence "I am colored but I offer nothing in the way of extenuating circumstances except the fact that I am the only negro in the United States whose grandfather on the mother's side was not an Indian chief". Because she used the term "only," Hurston distinguishes herself a standalone among all the other African AmericansVIEW DOCUMENT

The theme of isolation is utilized in writing to shape the principal characters and provide a particular vision on some crucial aspects of their identities. Authors such as Nancy Mairs in, “On Being a Cripple” Zora Neale Hurston in, “HowitFeelstoBeColoredMe” and Sherman Alexie in, “The Joy of Reading and Writing: Superman and Me”, offer us characterization to set the theme of isolation in their writing. In “On Being a Cripple” Mairs examines the public’s view of the disabled, as well as the views they have of themselves, and compare them to her own. In “HowitFeelstoBeColoredMe” Hurston discusses how she embraces being a girl of color in a world where people can be veryVIEW DOCUMENT

One of the main reasons they watch a live performance is to see how much courage the band has.

If an artist gets scared of an audience, the record company is not going to want to take them in because of their stage fright.
To conclude, these are my recommendations on the steps to take in getting a record deal. Through these steps you will find that it is a lot harder to get the fame that you feel you deserve. The fact of the matter is, these steps are true and they, in most cases, work out for the better.

Some consider boxing tobe a reckless sport in which two unintelligent beings indulge to punching each other until one of them is knocked out. Others consider it poetry in motion.

As a result of this paradox, we can see how in 500 A.D boxing was banned in Rome by Theodoric the Great as being an insult to God because it disfigures the face, the image of God.

Although, I understand how the word can be used to classify the male race, the word has lost its true meaning. Tobe called a man is a great compliment showing respect. It should stay that way. The death of this word is the constant usage of "hey man" or "what's up man?" by people who don't seem to either realize what they're saying or have a view of what a real man is. A true "man" is someone who you can respect. He is not just some regular guy that's over a certain age. He is so much more.VIEW DOCUMENT
