the ideal woman and ready to live life her way. After Nora’s realization, the shawl that she has had covering her up is removed, just as her chains attached to Torvald are broken. As she leaves, she “ties her hat on” and “throws her shawl” (3.113). This costume of a shawl represents Nora’s “lockdown”. The only reason she wore the costume in the first place was to obey her husband. But in the act of taking off the shawl and throwing it, she is representing her break away from Torvald and all his possession
of Creole society and the Victorian world at large, as seen in the metaphorical exchange with Robert, “'...Will you get my white shawl which I left on the window-sill over at the house?'” “...When he returned with the shawl she took it and kept it in her hand. She did not put it around her” (Kindle location 560-70). One possible metaphor here is that the white shawl represents her supra-marital chastity which she now holds in her hand, eschewing its use. Change will be inevitable.
she is dreading for the near future. She hates the idea of reality that there is indeed work and unpleasant things in any relationship. She continues to change the tone of the poem yet again with the lines, “A plate of pears, a piano with a Persian shawl, a cat stalking the picturesque amusing mouse had risen at his urging,”(4-8) I feel that she is now expressing that she has a sense of pride in her possessions. It also seems like she doesn’t want to be that typical house-wife that any man would want
physical loss, but can also refer to an emotional distance put between two people. In “The Shawl” by Louise Erdrich, there is an example of a physical loss and its effects on the family, while in “Bone Black” by Bell Hooks the loss shown is of the emotional kind and it's aftermath. It is interesting to view these stories side by side, as they showcase how both types of loss effect the family.
In “The Shawl” by Louise Erdrich, a father struggles with the pain he feels from the loss of his sister
during the service. In one scenario, the rabbi moved through the congregation carrying the sacred text known as the Torah. As the rabbi approached the individuals in the crowd, they touched the Torah gently with their shawl and proceeded to kiss the shawl. Those who did not have a shawl used any inanimate object that was nearby to touch the Torah. A man that sat beside me at the service noted that this action served two purposes: a sign of respect and a source of good luck. However, this was the

The act of holding two different faces with her toned arms shows a form of masculinity. All that she is challenges the idea that her presence to a man is what makes her successful. She does not care who is watching her or if other’s think she is beautiful, she is simply acting the way she wants to. The shawl she is holding over her shoulders is a symbol that

There was noticeable reaction in the room, as showing your arms or not covering of the bosom while praying is counted as a violation of religious norm. As a result a few women kindly approached her and shared donated shawls with her, which did not seem to bother the sister at all. Seeing that it was

Over the dress, women had a choice of wearing shawls, capes, or robes. The shawl was a piece of cloth around 4 feet wide by 13 or 14 feet long. This was mostly worn pleated as well. Female clothes only changed slightly through the millennia. Draped clothing (with many varieties of drapery) sometimes gave the

Of course Muslims don’t celebrate Christmas traditionally, but we embrace the American lifestyle as best as we can. I’ve only been to Pakistan once when I about 8, but the trip wasn’t all too

After briefly discussing the genesis of the Kashmiri Shawls we will now try to explore
another main aspect of this study that is who really transformed Kashmiri shawl industry. All the historical chronicles and travelogues have overstated the role of the Kings in the development of the Kashmiri shawls. Nowhere is the role of the local communities delineated. Almost all historians and scholars who have worked on shawls have consensus on the “fact” that all

women will often wear wigs to cover and hide their hair. Also, some will cover their head with a shawl around non-family. When in the home, they tend to let it all out because they are in front of family. This is all about modesty. The wearing of a skullcap is also centered on modesty and is also just distinctive. You’ll see some Jews wearing a Tallit. This is a prayer shawl prayer shawl. A prayer shawl is worn over one’s whole upper body or one shoulders during daytime services or while praying.
too invested. Upon hearing this parable, the raven agrees to not directly put his life in danger, and use the jackal’s plan. Following it to the letter, the raven grabs an expensive shawl hanging in the village, makes sure that the people chase after him, then drops it on the snake. In an effort to get back the shawl, the villagers leave the raven to escape and kill the snake. The moral here is clearly applicable: the original plan, to claw the snake’s eyes out, could have cost the raven its life
During the Summer months, just off Rainbow, a famous outdoor market (Souq in Arabic) called Jara opens on Fridays; it is full of antiques, souvenirs and local, hand-made merchandise. In the same locale, there's a showroom for handcrafted dresses, shawls and even jewelry that are inspired by the colors of Jordan's nature, as well as Arabic calligraphy, which are often made by ladies from rural communities, it is worth a visit.

Finally, her delicate gown and tippet symbolize how fragile she is and how at the same time she can

When we walk into the sanctuary of any synagogue, the first sights we most likely see are the aron hakodesh, the eternal lamp, and every man in the congregation wearing a tallit, the ritual prayer shawl worn during weekday and Shabbat morning services. Now, we might also see women wearing the tallit, too. In more recent years, women in synagogue have begun to wear the tallit as a movement towards egalitarianism, taking religious practice into their own hands and projecting a personal style to boot
As the play progresses, she begins to understand the trials of life, but maintains that “love conquers everything.” (149, 238-239) Even this conviction is eroded with each experience she has, beginning with the scene outside the stage door.

In taking it and the Stage-Door Keeper’s position, the Daughter effectively absorbs the sorrow it

I often see Orthodox Jewish men wearing yarmulkes and prayer shawls, and I wonder what is the purpose of wearing these. And finally, I wanted to know what is the role of women in Judaism.
As the oldest living monotheistic religion in the Western world, Judaism teaches that there is only one God. Jews follow the
It wasn't long until the Empire look would be replaced with the long trailing dresses that were the vogue in Paris in 1843. Shawls became another favorite accessory of American women during the second half of the 19th century.

The sniper also begins to see all others as “the enemy”- the woman in the shawl, an innocent citizen, is seen as an enemy to him because she tipped off the tank commander (which she probably did for her own safety). War has psychologically changed the sniper to refer to all others not on his “side” as the enemy.
The theme of Louise Erdrich’s “The Shawl” is that protecting your family is more important than your own life, which communicates Anishinaabeg cultural values. Anishinaabeg culture places a high value on the importance of having family. The story of how significant family is to the Anishinaabeg culture is deep in the hearts of the whole culture. One of the major fundamentals in Anishinaabeg life is unity (More Ojibwe History). Many people see family as a case of unity. Therefore, if the family breaks

“The Shawl” is a very devastating story centered on the Holocaust. It is a story of determination, survival, and sacrifice. It is based on the experiences of Rosa, Stella the niece, and Magda; Rosa’s daughter. Rosa lives to tell her story of the events surrounding her daughter’s death. What we have learned about the Holocaust, especially the violence makes the story realistic, tragic and compelling at the same time. The shawl becomes a symbol of survival, protection, and comfort for all three characters

Another theme that I noticed throughout the book, was the idea of people being brainwashed by their society.

The people of the ghetto are being brainwashed by the idea of the

Suffering becomes a way of life for Magda, Stella and Rosa, as they struggle to survive during the Holocaust. During these trying times, some cling to ideals and dreams, while others find unusual vessels of hope – like the shawl – to perdure in their austere living conditions. Although the shawl becomes a source of conflict between Magda, Stella and Rosa in this narrative, it also serves as a pivotal force and a motivational factor. In Ozick’s

Use of Setting in "The Shawl" and "The Portable Phonograph"
In literature, setting is often used to enhance or develop characters, provide realism, and create a mood or atmosphere for a story (Roberts 256). Two short stories, "The Shawl" by Cynthia Ozick and Walter Van Tillburg Clark’s "The Portable Phonograph" explore victims of war in the vivid settings that the authors have created. Although both works are vague as to geographic setting and place in time, the authors’ detailed
reflect the "costume" that Torvald expects her to wear (and which she wears obligingly), that of the meek, subservient, childlike wife.
After the masquerade ball, the costume is finally described as being Italian and is accompanied by a black shawl (easily associated with death due to the color). While Torvald is showing her off to Mrs. Linde, he finally admits, although he isn't entirely aware of it at the time, that he sees Nora for who he wants her to be, and not for whom she truly is. "A

The plot of this story does not adhere to the conventional plot line. I feel that the Shawl’s plot came to early. Magda dies to early in the novel. I would have wanted her to be living just a little while longer so that we can build some sort of relationship with her. In my opinion, all we know of this fifteen-month-old baby is what Rosa tells of her daughter. Magda never lives long enough to see life through the eye of the reader. This takes away from a conventional
affects everyone differently. Some people are open about their feelings and others bottle them up. The loss of a family member does not always refer to a death, but can also refer to an emotional or physical distance put between two people.

It is interesting to view these stories side by side, as they showcase how both types

"A writer of great intelligence, moral energy, and imaginative power, Cynthia Ozick has appreciably widened the range of what the short story is able to be. Reading "The Shawl" we are moved past the truth of fact to a deeper, different understanding; we bear witness to the truth of art. Only rarely does this happen, and when it does, it must be celebrated."
