Yet, Bradstreet is truly attached to her work since she wants to fix its flaws, and seriously wishes she could. She laments, for it is not possible.

Which made me realize that she was not only aware of herself, but she was also aware of her mother, “I wondered if I would go through fire and water for it as my mother had done for Charles Dickens”. Welty’ proves that the awareness she has of herself is pretty great by saying, “I live in gratitude of my parents for initiating me-and as early as I begged for it, without keeping me waiting-into knowledge of the word, into reading and spelling, by way of the alphabet.” She wanted everyone to see how supportive her parents were of reading and purchasing book by using imagery to explain it. The most important literary element that takes place in Welty's’ essay is imagery. Between describing all the times her mother would read to her and imagining her opening all of her gifts from normal childhood toys to books, really makes the reader aware of the development of her life changing force. Her mother and father were very involved in her development and if it was not for them, she would have never began “to read before starting school.” It is Weltys’ imagery that has achieved the best awareness of herself and does the best job of displaying how books greatly impacted and changed her

In the essay, Directions: Write, Read, Rewrite. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 as Needed, Susan Sontag emphasizes that reading can be used as motivation for writing. Granted she has talked to people that don't feel the same. That the act of reading and the writing must be separate, that it's best to do one or the other. Sontag believes this view is brought about by either fear of influencing one's unique voice or simply lack of time.
Sang Diego Union-Tribune reported that “Thanks to Patchett’s narrative know-how, readers won’t want to let the novel go until they finish it” ( ). Karen Valby of Entertainment Weekly said that “One approaches the final pages with a heavy heart for several reasons, not the least of which being that this fine read has come to an end” (Valby, “Bel Canto”). What on earth makes “Bel Canto” such an attractive book?

The fact that the poem was written all in one sentence and had many amounts of commas told me that the girl was constantly told what to do one command after the other. These commands were told in a way that wouldn’t let the girl think of anything otherwise, the voice of the mother has now replaced the voice in the girl’s head, which meant that when she would make a decision her mother 's voice is the one that she will be referred to. However, on the positive aspect, it seems as if the mother was trying to raise a well-rounded child to grow into a respected woman. I see what she’s doing as tough love, a mother who makes sure that she is strict with her child.

Analyzing Willa Cather and Three of Her Stories As individuals, we all have our own way of communicating in writing that can tell the reader a lot about the author in an almost intimate way. When you open a book, you aren’t just staring at blank pieces of paper, but seeing words that flow together in such a way that envelope the reader into the world that the author has created.
