6. Benighted, for Phillis Wheatley, had a strong significance to her history. She was a very bright and intellectual women, but to Americans, all they cared about was how much she could work for them. I think she also uses benighted in past tense to show that she has overcome that and now has found what she truly loved doing, writing. 7.
But the more I learned about it, what it can do for women, it’s benefits, I came to really appreciate it. b. The more I thought about it, about how it could’ve changed the postpartum period of some of my closest family members.

His request for additional copies of her story is captioned as “most wonderful”, the gender polarization erased for the first time, by his acceptance and her steadfast faithfulness to her identity. It is both a relief and a victory for her, the only daughter. “Only Daughter” took us behind the face of social norms and expectations, to reveal the real struggles occurring in a gender-polarized world, in the most personal and vulnerable of places: the family. Sandra Cisneros opens up to the reader, revealing the secrets and processes that forged her into the literary scholar she is now and the woman that drives it all. Her need to have her father’s approval and her brother’s rejection based on gender alone only added emphasis to gender politics and the necessity to realize her dreams of education and independence.

Being an auditory and visual learner, I appreciate hearing the author verbalize the short story “Flying Over Waters.” It is embarrassing to admit that my own writing falls short of the beauty of creative writing; however, by hearing the story read aloud by Ellen Klages, complete with all of the love and passion she intended for the piece, I feel my own creative vocabulary increase. By actually hearing the spoken text, I obtain first-hand knowledge of the resentment and insecurity of ‘Critter’ (the main character).

The book I chose to read was “The Glass Castle” by Jeanette Walls. “The Glass Castle” was memorable because it gave me an idea about the diversity of each person.

The author included outstanding imagery that puts the reader into the shoes of the main character.
