Amy Tan brings to life the struggles of dual cultural identity, generational clashes due to age and cultural gaps minority woman face in society.

Born in Oakland, California in 1952, Amy Tan was born to immigrants that had left lives and family behind in China. As a teenager, Amy was faced with the tragic death of her Father and a few months later her Brother. Shortly after their deaths Daisy, Amy’s mother, decided “to cleanse the evil influence of their "diseased house". (Mote) And moved her family to New York, Washington, Florida and finally to Europe. At first they lived in the Netherlands and eventually settling in Monteux, Switzerland where Tan completed high school. Being considered an outsider by her peers, and the continuous feeling of anger and loss she felt from losing her brother and father, she began hanging out with a crowd of drug-dealing hippies and at sixteen was arrested. Her relationship with her Mother became increasingly strained and after a close encounter of almost eloping with a mental patient, Amy and her family returned to United States where her mother enrolled her in a small Baptist...

Literary Technique of “a Pair of Tickets” by Amy Tan

...The short story "A Pair of Tickets," authored by Amy Tan is a detailed analysis of issues that concern many people that are of a different descent but that have been residents or migrated to another country for a long time. The story was written in such a way that if one does not take cognizance of interpretation of stories; one may not really gesticulate what the author is trying to portray. The story was about a young American student on a journey for the first time to China with a plan of reuniting with her half-sisters for the first time after the demise of her mother. The writer made use of stereotypes and prevalence of internal conflicts in presenting the theme of the story to the readers for easy understanding. The Protagonist or narrator in the story namely “June May” and her father were travelling by train; “Amy Tan” the author shows both symbolic and physical setting used in the story. “June May” reeling the feeling of being a Chinese was quoted in the story as being transformed into a werewolf, being color blind and behaving as a typical Chinese will behave. It is worthy of note that June may is very ignorant of her culture such that she assumes that her behave stereotypically in an ignorant way because she was trying to portray to her that the Chinese culture is the best, hence when she was always trying to avoid being drawn into the drama of imagining herself as a Chinese girl, this was evident when she alighted from the train and said “I am in China, I remind......

Black and Tans

...The Black & Tans in Ireland, 1920-1921: Their Origins, Roles and Legacy From January 1919 until a truce came into effect on 11 July 1921, a state of undeclared war existed in some areas of Ireland between guerilla units of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), representing the independence aspirations of militant Irish nationalism, and the forces of the British Military who were charged with the task of restoring law and order in this part of the United Kingdom. With neither a state of war nor martial law being declared by the British authorities in Ireland – martial law did come eventually in December 1920/January 1921 but it applied only to eight counties in the southern-most part of the country – the military was confined largely to a supporting role, leaving the civil administration based at Dublin Castle heavily reliant on the enforcement powers of the Royal Irish Constabulary (RIC) in its efforts to curb the insurgent Irish nationalists. From the IRA’s perspective, the RIC was seen as “a means to restrain in every locality any opposition to the regime it served.” In a response to this apparent menace, early in 1919 the IRA began a campaign of intimidation against officers of the RIC, who were subjected to threats, violent attacks and exclusion of their families from the local community. Other locals who dared to show support or even sympathy for RIC families thereafter were similarly......

Indoor Tanning vs. Outdoors

...Indoor Tanning vs. Outdoor Tanning You have two choices when it comes to getting a tan. You can either tan indoors or outdoors. While both can make you look good, they can also be dangerous to your health. Indoor tanning consists of a tanning bed with ultra violet light bulbs. Outdoor tanning consists of natural sunlight. There is a difference in the UV rays you get from both. Outdoor tanning in the sunlight you are exposed to a mixture of UVA and UVB rays. Indoor tanning you are typically only getting UVA radiation. The differences between the two are that UVB usually is what causes the skin to burn while the UVA is what affects the pigment to tan. With outdoor tanning you cannot control how much radiation you get. Certain aspects can change it though. Midday, usually between 12-4 pm the sun is at the strongest intensity. On a cloudy day the intensity of the sun will decrease but the radiation is stronger. When tanning indoor, in a tanning bed, you can control the intensity and the amount of time of the UVA radiation you get. I personally love tanning. Whether it is indoors or out in the sun. When tanning outdoor, it usually consists of being with family and friends at the beach, pool, or the lake. Lying around, playing in the water, or being on a float. Being in the water also intensifies the amount of radiation you get. Tanning indoors can be relaxing and peaceful. You have that personal alone time. You can either have it quiet or listen to some music. It also......

Two Kinds by Amy Tan Summary

...Brittany Peters Professor Smith English 102-A2C 27 March 2013 "Two Kinds" Summary In the short story “Two Kinds” by Amy Tan, the conflicts of mother and daughter relationships are considered a theme. The cultural differences between a mother and her daughter, Jing-mei, really take a toll on their personal relationship. The struggle that a mother has in wanting her child to have a better life and all have all the opportunities that she didn’t have growing up drives her mother to the point of almost unrealistic expectations for her daughter to be good at something and become known as a ‘prodigy.’ Throughout this story, Jing-mei learns a little about herself and in the end, later in life, begins to understand her mother and her expectations for her as well. Jing-mei’s mother believed America held all the possibilities in the world along with the ability to become anything you wanted to be; if you were dedicated to something Her mother has high hopes for her daughter becoming a prodigy. She does not know what her talent is, but explores and considers all sorts of possibilities that stem from her reading magazine articles on amazing kids in “Ripley’s Believe It Or Not” and other popular magazines. Jing-mei was forced to take piano lessons from Mr.Chong, a retired piano teacher who was deaf. He could not hear her off-key notes that she would play in her attempts to not try to learn how to play. Mr. Chong’s eyes were too slow to keep up with her hitting the wrong notes,...

Frogs vs Tods

...Frogs vs. Toads Frogs and toads are “small, tailless animal” that belongs to the amphibian class. (Forester 536 & Gibbons 303) Everyone thinks that frogs and toads are different from one another but in fact “there is no clear distinction between” them (Burnie & Wilson 440). Most people find it very difficult to differentiate between a frog and a toad that they often mix them up. Their physical features are very much alike but they are different on the basis of anatomy and habitat. When you see a creature hopping along the side of the creek, can you tell if it’s a frog or a toad? Frogs are very unique because “some frogs have colorful markings” (Forester 536). While as toads are marked in a “drab shades of brown, tan, gray, or black that serves as camouflage” (Campbell 217). Besides their markings, “almost all frogs have the same basic body structure” (Forester 536). Frogs have “long, powerful hind legs, which they use for jumping” (Forester 536). “Frogs can leap long distances, but also use their limbs to swim, burrow, and even to glide from tree to tree” (Wake 337). Unlike frogs, toads “generally have squat bodies and short legs” (Campbell 217). They do not “jump” like frogs so they “make short hops or even walk” (Campbell 217). As opposed to skin, frogs have “thin, moist skin” (Forester 536) and “the skin of most toads is dry, rough, and covered with warts” (Gibbons 303). There is an advantage to a toad’s dry skin. It’s “warty skin allows it to inhabit drier regions than...

About Amy Tan

...in the essay Mother Tongue, Amy Tan talked about her love and fascination of language, and how language can evoke an emotion, a visual image, and how it’s a tool she uses everyday in writing. She then goes into how she is aware of the different ways she uses the English language, she was in a middle of a speech, talking very precise about her book to a group of people using her knowledge of correct grammar that she has learned throughout school, and books, until she spotted her mother, and started to reminisce about how she holds a conversation with her mom. She starts off by giving a example of a conversation with her mom, they were talking about a price of a piece of furniture and Tan heard herself saying, not waste money that way, and she knows this different kind of English , she has been speaking with her mother, family talk ,she calls it, all of her life. Tan also expresses how at the same time her mother is very intelligent. She reads Forbes report, listens to Wall Street Week, and converses daily with her stockbroker. Tan calls this "Broken" or "Fractured" English. Tan goes into a explanation about how she was also ashamed of her mother’s English, because Tan believed that her English reflected the quality of what she had to say. Tan states she thinks family is the major influence of the way one speaks a certain language. Because of her mother's influence over her life Tan decided to write a book using the English she grew up with, maybe not the correct grammar that......

Tan Lines and Bar Codes

...Tan Lines and Bar Codes Although refusing to conform to society guarantees a life as a social pariah and may present harsh consequences, the road to individuality gives one an opportunity to discover his or her purpose in life through uniqueness and their morals. In “A&P,” John Updike portrays an exceptional story of a teenager’s battle between doing what is right and going along with society. The teenager, Sammy, works as a cashier at the local grocery store where he is presented with a situation with three teenage girls who walk in the store with only their bathing suits. When the manager spots the girls, he asks them to leave, and Sammy decides that they were not treated fair, so he quits his job at the store. Sammy made a choice to stand up for the girls in hopes of they would recognize his bravery and talk to him. His choice to refuse society’s ways cost him his job, but it teaches the audience a valuable lesson. When stood with adversity between what is right and wrong, one must always stand up for what is right no matter what society will think of them and no matter the consequences. By being unique, one expresses his or her individuality by standing out from the norm of society either by the way they dress and/or the way they act. In a society, one will meet some interesting people who have chosen to be unique and refuse to follow the rules of the standard world. These people are on their way to discovering their purpose in life, but they are criticized often......

Mac vs Microsoft vs

...for the process. Each task also holds the execution state, which can be running, interruptible, uninterruptible, stopped, zombie. Linux takes the user level threads for the tasks and can map them to kernel level processes with the same group ID. This offers resources sharing and security. Mac operating systems handle the execution of processes even differently than Windows and Linux. Mac has Grand Central Dispatch, which contains a pool of available threads. “Thread pools are automatically sized by the system to maximize the performance of the applications using GCD while minimizing the number of idle or competing threads” (Stallings 2012). Programs are intended to create blocks, which contain data and code on how to perform. “Windows vs. MAC vs. Linux OS will provide as much concurrency as possible based on the number of cores available and the thread capacity of the system” (Stallings, 2012). The development of these blocks is formatted in files and will run in concurrency using first-in-first-out processing. The merging process in the Grand Central Dispatch is well-organized in most cases compared to manually handling threads. Looking at UNIX/Linux it has one advantage over other operating systems on the market. It is less used than other operating systems. That fact alone improves the security of the operating system because the less hackers are trying to attack the system, the more secure it will be. Linux utilizes a firewall to block anyone trying to hack into the......

Amy Tan - Mother's Tongue

...Comprehension 1. Tan is classifying how she uses different Englishes with her writings and with family. With her family, she usually uses “broken” English, and with her writing she uses “professional” English. 2. I believe that she introduces the categories in paragraphs 7 and 8. I believe she identified the categories at a right time because she begins by talking about her family and work, and then she introduces her categories. 3. Yes, Amy Tan goes into explaining the categories by sharing personal experiences. Amy does not treat both equally. I do not see it as a problem because there is no way to treat the Englishes equally when you use them in a different form. 4. Amy believes that her mother’s limited English is a problem in department stores, banks, and restaurants. 5. Her mother’s English has an effect on her life because of how broken it is she needs to pretend to be her at points, watch her mother be treated poorly, and go through several bad situations. 6. She says that math is precise and had a specific answer, as for in English was assigned several questions where she had to fill in the blank and get “bland combinations” as answers. No, I do not think her problems come from her family’s language skills. I believe that it’s pretty much an excuse that she is using, being an Asian American, and it all depends on the person to limit themselves to the English language or not. 7. She offers the explanations that Asian Americans might come from a “broken”......
