My Agreement With Steinbeck's Suggestion
Steinbeck suggests that in ?The Pearl? ,which he wrote, desires
of men and women tend to be quite different and I agree with it.
Men and women have different thoughts and treated differently. It is
true that men uses strength and women uses brains and that men
always make troubles. In our society, usually men protect their women
and children. With this in our minds, men and women feel themselves
different, taught differently when they are born, and usually have
different desires. We can learn from ?The Pearl? that such as Kino,
whom is the man, would start the trouble and pulls Coyotito, Whom
is Kino?s son, to death. But for Juana, the woman, knew something
bad was going to happen when she saw the pearl but to not destroy
her husband, Kino, ?s dreams, she keeps her mouth shut. I agree with
Steinbeck?s suggestion in ?The Pearl? that the desires of men and
woman tend to be quite different.
In my opinion, Men have strong pride and never want to loose
especially in strength. As in ?The Pearl? when Juana, who is Kino?s
wife, asked to throw the pearl that he found away, Kino only thought
about winning and fighting. ?I will fight this thing. I will win over it.
We will have our chance.? (P.57) Right after a bloody fight with the
man who was aiming for the pearl, Kino became selfish and forgot
about his dreams. Only Juana knew that the pearl was evil and told.
?Kino, this pearl is evil. Let us destroy it before it destroys us. Let us
crush it between two stones.? (P.56) But she did not want to make
her husband disappointed and didn?t beg him because she knew that
he will never give up the pearl. Like Juana, women cares about others
In my opinion, men are also more didn?t argue about this because she did not want to destroy Kino?s
dreams. Like Juana, women have passion which shows that women
don?t want to hurt others feelings.
I also think that women are more careful than men. Women
usually knows what they are doing, but men mostly make problems.
When Kino said, ?I am a man.? (P.57)
?It meant that Kino would drive his strength against
a mountain and plunge his strength against the sea. Juana
in her woman?s soul, knew that the mountain would stand
while the man broke himself; that the sea would surge
while the mand drowned in it.? (P.59~60)
This means that Juana knew that Kino is fighting with society
and would collapse. Kino accepted this when Coyotito, Kino?s son,
died. This shows that men rush into things carelessly.
I think that women desires of men and men desires of women.
Like Juana loved and needed Kino and thought,
?And yet it was this thing that made him a man,
half insane and half god, and Juana had need of a man;
she could not live without a man. Although she might be
puzzled by these differences between man and woman, she
knew them and accepted them and needed them? (P.60)
As the quote explains that a women like Juana want and need a
man like Kino.
? In Kino?s head there was a song now, clear and
soft, and if he had been able to speak of it, he would
have called it the Song of the Family.?(P.2)
The Song of the Family shows the love of his family, Juana
and Coyotito. Kino fell in love with Juana and the love of needing
shown in the Song of the Family.
Therefore Men and women are have different thoughts and
taught unequally. I figured what Steinbeck was trying to show about
men and women how Juana and Kino?s thoughts about the pearl were
different. Juana had wise decisions which meant women don?t make
problems than men make. So I agree with Steinbeck?s suggestion thatoften selfish than woman.
When Kino said, ?No one shall take our good fortune from us,? (p.57)
he only thought about himself and made everyone his enemy. Juana
desires of man and women tend to be quite different.

SulaSula Is Sula a tragic novel? I think it is. Because Sula grows up in an unusual family and many tragedies happen during her growth. Those kinds of tragedies we can even see it at the very beginning of the story. Eva had married a man named BoyBoy and had three children: Hannah, the eldest, and Eva, whom she named after herself but called Pearl, and a son named Ralph whom she called Plum. (32) After five years of their marriage, BoyBoy left Eva without leaving anything except $1.65, five eggs
The Causes And Effects Of World WarThe Causes and Effects of World War What were the causes and effects of World War I? The answer to this seemingly simple question is not elementary.

Furthermore, the effects of the war were not just concentrated to a post-war era lasting for a generation of Westerners. No, the effects of the war were widespread throughout the world

Pearl Harbor - Brief LookPearl Harbor - Brief Look On December 7, 1941 the U.S. troops stationed on the island of Pearl Harbor were not waken up by the familiar sound of a bugle but instead by gunfire and explosions.

Some of these events were America's involvement in the war and the dropping of the Atom Bomb at Hiroshima. Between the years of 1920 and 1940 dictator

It seems that the maturing of the two superpowers, Russia and the United States, can be traced to World War II. To be a superpower, a nation needs to have a strong economy, an overpowering military, immense international political power and, related to this, a strong national ideology. It was this war, and its results, that caused each of these superpowers to experience such a prepondera

The Role Of Women In The ChurchThe Role of Women in the Church With the advent of the feminist movement, the role of women in all parts of society has come under increasing scrutiny. One area of recent controversy is the role of women in the Christian Church. Some churches whose traditions and practices are less rigidly tied to Biblical doctrines have begun placing women in leadership positions such as pastor or teacher. Other churches which interpret the Bible more literally have been slow to adopt such changes. Much of the
