GRIN Verlag, 2011 - 60 pages
Seminar paper from the year 2011 in the subject English Language and Literature Studies - Literature, grade: -, Ernst Moritz Arndt University of Greifswald, language: English, abstract: In this essay "Two sisters, April and Cheryl Raintree" I will write about the following, the characters April and Cheryl Raintree in "In Search of April Raintree" by Beatrice Culleton have brutal experiences of victimization and each of them has great difficulties in working through them. I will discuss how the main characters deal with the experience of victimization, how they come to terms with it, or not as in the case of Cheryl, and finally how they grow beyond it. The term paper starts with a small history section, where the reader will get to know some interesting information about the Metis. After a summary of the story I will focus on the three steps of the girl's life in growing up. In the main section, I will show and discuss with certain examples, how April and Cheryl are confronted with racism. In detail, I also will point out how April and Cheryl, as an individual, come in terms with the experience of the brutal victimization. At the end I will show my own opinion within the conclusion, about the book, the author and the topic of this essay. This essay is supposed to be a junior seminar paper, it looks more than it is because I have included a lot of citations out of the originally Text. I did this, that it is easier for the reader to understand the story and its mood.
