The first essay “I Want a Wife” by Judy Brady was undoubtedly directed towards husbands around the world by taking shots at them at times in her essay.
For instance, at the end of the essay there was an exert stating, “If, by chance, I find another person more suitable as a wife than the wife I already have, I want the liberty to replace my present wife with another one.
For example, in “Not All Men Are Sly Foxes” there was an exert that states, “The librarian gave me a list of the twenty most popular contemporary picture books and I read every one of them.
Of the twenty, seven don’t mention a parent at all.
In the essay “I Want a Wife” the author, Judy Brady writes, “I want a wife who takes care of the children when they are sick, a wife who arranges to be around when the children need special care, because of course, I cannot miss classes at school.
Should this be acceptable or do fathers need to take the initiative to take care of their children more?One writer excels at a plan, or a title-page; another works away the body of the book; and a third is a dab at an index.Thus a Magazine is not the result of any single man's industry; but goes through as many hands as a new pin, before it is fit for the public.In the other essay “Not All Men Are Sly Foxes” the essay is spoken through a father’s voice who is expressing his frustrations to the stereotypes that occur in children’s books.In this essay, fathers are perceived to be the weaker and more unlovable parent, in what the author Armin Brott thinks is an inaccurate perception.“I Want a Wife” and “Not all Men Are Sly Foxes” share the same common theme: They stereotype the mother being the dominant parental figure in a young child’s life.There is no denying it small children rely on their mothers for love and care.In this situation, however, every un|experienced writer finds himself.Impressed with the terrors of the tribunal before which he is going to appear, his natural humour turns to pertness, and for real wit he is obliged to sub|stitute vivacity.Contrary the essay “I Want a Wife” provides imagery and personal experience throughout the essay to the reader on what kind of responsibilities a wife and mother experience daily.This writing technique puts the reader in the wives shoes for a day and provides vivid details that illustrate how dependent children and fathers are on their mothers and wives.
