Therefore, I had little experience with minorities in a non-minority school. After the speech that was given by Michael Jefferson, I was more informed on the effects of stereotyping of minor

My last Duchess My Last Duchess By Robert Browning In Robert Browning’s monologue poem “My Last Duchess,” the author employs many literary techniques to convey the overriding jealous, controlling demeanor of the persona, the Duke. The poem, through the Dukes careful words, illustrates that appearances can indeed be deceiving. In the first line Browning immediately withdraws the persona from the poem, saying directly to the envoy, and thus the reader “there’s my last Duchess painted on the wall”
