    Amy Tan uses facts from her life and her own identity to create the character of Jing-Mei Woo for her first novel The Joy Luck Club. Amy Tan is a fictional writer, but unlike many other writers of that genre she writes about things that are very close to reality and her hart.

  • Why The Joy Luck Club Sucks - 1,039 words
    Just last night I saw the movie, The Joy Luck Club (JLC), which played on television for the first time in Los Angeles. I had been meaning to see this movie but never got around to it until now. Since many female friends recommended this 1993 movie to me, including my own sister, I was looking forward to experiencing a great work of art. Up to this point, I have heard nothing but glowing reviews about this movie. Near the end of the movie I found myself thinking, There is something terribly wrong here! All the Chinese men are portrayed as bad and weak! Why is this movie getting good reviews? Are the critics all blind? Then I started to get angry. What a rip-off! I'm glad I didn't spend money ...

    ... e portrayed in a better light than the Chinese men in the movie. I don't think there was a fourth husband. In the one unbelievable relationship with the lone Chinese husband, one daughter splits all expenses 50-50 with her future husband even though he earns 7 times her salary! She even ends up marrying the tight bastard. Now tell me, is that reality? Did she really believe he loved her? Did she really love him? Would any modern Chinese woman be that stupid? I don't think so. Let's see what we have for the Chinese husbands. A rapist, a promiscuous husband and a clueless cheapskate. Of the two white husbands, one is simply ignorant of table manners and the other is a very rich man who pla ...

  • Barrio Boy And The Joy Luck Club - 896 words
    In both pieces of literature; "Barrio Boy," by Ernesto Galarza and "The Joy Luck Club," by Amy Tan; the authors portray five families and their friends struggle with language barriers, even within their own families, adapting to the customs and routines of the North American society, and how the younger family members succeeded in school, work, and relationships. In Amy Tans book "The Joy Luck Club," the theme of the "American Dream," which is the belief that America is a guaranteed land of opportunity, of success and happiness is the main theme in the story. It is of women who set off on a journey because in their own country they were suffering through many hardships, like war and shame fr ...

  • The Joy Luck Club - Playing The Game - 1,230 words
    A vivid portrait of the struggles, as well as the joys, of three generations of Asian American families is painted for us on the off white canvas used by Amy Tan in 1989, the pages of her book, The Joy Luck Club. In this portrayal of Chinese immigrants and their American born children, four family stories are brought to light, through a series of vignettes told from the view points of eight women, as they change and grow in their lives. Lives that become the pigment that, along with Tans taintless brush strokes become a painting fit for a museum. As the stories are unveiled to us, we begin to find the connection between mothers and daughters, as well as ties between friends. These connection ...

  • The Joy Luck Club - 680 words
    Hey, Sabrina, are you Japanese or Chinese?" I asked. Her reply, as it seems to be for a lot of minority groups, is, "Neither, I'm Chinese-American." So, besides her American accent and a hyphenated ending on her answer to the SAT questionnaire about her ethnic background, what's the difference? In Amy Tan's enjoyable novel, The Joy Luck Club, about the relationships and experiences of four Chinese mothers and four Chinese-American daughters, I found out the answer to this question. The difference in upbringing of those women born during the first quarter of this century in China, and their daughters born in the American atmosphere of California, is a difference that doesn't exactly take a sc ...

    ter> Question: In the Joy Luck Club, Amy Tan touches on an obscure, little discussed issue: the divergence of Chinese culture through American children born of Chinese immigrant parents. With close reference to at least two stories in the book, discuss the truth of this statement. To a certain extent, I agree with this statement. A persons environment in which he/she grows up is a large factor in moulding his/her thinking, character and behaviour. Going by their titles and genes, the four daughters are Chinese, yet there is more to it than it meets the eye. First of all, the daughters speak in English, not their language, Mandarin. Second of all, they are addressed by their English names, J ...

  • Analysis Of Asian American Culture In "the Joy Luck Club" - 945 words
    In American literature today, many authors from various cultures are rising above the rest to be recognized. One culture in particular is the Asian culture; whose literature up until the 1970s was virtually unpublished (Nash 557). Asian people had to overcome many obstacles in order to be accepted as capable of having the skills to write. The Japanese encountered their greatest challenge after the bombing of Pearl Harbor during World War II. It is said that, The U.S. government uprooted over 120, 000 Japanese Americans despite the fact that two thirds of them were citizens by birth (Nash 558). Families were given little advanced warning before they were torn from their homes and forced into ...

She is content and very much in love with the man she wants to marry; however, her mother doesnt see how her daughter would marry him because he is not Chinese and does not keep a clean house. The daughter would say that her mother was too stuck in her old Chinese views, while the mother would say that her daughter is foolish and has let herself become too Americanized. Other stories just center around growing up and learning to accept lifes hardships. An example is the story of a girl who goes to the beach with her family and is left with the responsibility of watching her brothers. H ...

  • Happiness Bounded By Duty In "the Joy Luck Club" - 1,020 words
    Allan K. Chalmers once said that, "The grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for." For many, life is a journey where one struggles to learn how to compromise or balance their love for themselves and others in order to gain happiness. The Joy Luck Club by Amy Tan focuses on the basic notion of love and family; it ties together the relationships found within all the lives of the characters. All these relationships are bound by love. Although the plot and connotations behind each story may seem completely different, every person seems to take love for granted in one way or another. Through their ignoring, un-acknowledgement, or rejection of ...

    In The Joy Luck Club, Amy Tan's first novel, short-story-like vignettes alternate back and forth between the lives of four Chinese women in pre-1949 China and lives of their American-born daughters in California. The book is a mediation on the divided nature of this emigrant life. The novel is narrated horizontally as well as vertically; friendships and rivalries develop among the daughters as well as the mothers.(Matuz 92) As Jing Mei Woo describes, "Auntie Lin and my mother were both best friends and arch-enemies who spent a lifetime comparing their children. I was one month older than Waverly Jong, Auntie Lin's prized daughter. From the time we were babies, our mothers compared the crease ...

But I knew she was my mother, because I could feel her pain." (Tan 216) The bond is closely tied to the pride and wonder parents experience when they discover that their heir is able to take those first few wobbly steps or has learned to tie his own laces or can balance on a two-wheeler. The joy and excitement only increase as the child grows and begins responding to life in unique and surprising ways.

June is rebellious in nature, always swimming against her mothers dreams for her, not because they were harmful dreams but because she felt she could never live up to them, and she didnt because she thought she couldnt.
