George Henry Lewes once said, “Personal experience is the basis of all real Literature.” Using personal experiences in appealing to ethos in political writing is common among most writers. Some will argue that they could care less about the past situations of the writer, but I see personal experiences as an opportunity for writers to speak truthfully from their own experiences and not from the accounts of others, which ultimately leads to a greater influence on the reader. The use of experiences shapes who the writer is and how they view society based on these encounters. This in, combination with the author’s ability to present his or her ideas, can greatly affect the audience’s view on the topics presented.
The blue-collar work force has been the building block for many centuries, even without directly realizing it. In “Blue Collar Brilliance” the author Mike Rose discusses how his mother strengthened social and memory skills which allowed her to excel in her job as a waitress. Mike Rose realized everything that although his mother was smart in her own respect, working without a proper education is not all that it is cracked up to be. For example, blue collar jobs may require reading, but it is reading symbols.
I have picked my backyard because when I was younger it was my favorite place to be at. I used to go out there and play any kind of game, but my favorite thing was playing soccer. My feelings about going out there was something amazing, some other kids would rather play video games and doing some other stuff, but all I wanted to do was to go out in my backyard and just enjoy there. Just like my love for soccer has changed even though I still love it but it is different, and i do not really play out there anymore.
The world today is engulfed in change and development as a result of evolution. This would be considered a warning and a reason to reserve our culture and tradition that is slowly dying out. This has however becomes difficult especially in the 19th and 20th centuries because of the massive advancement in movement and communication. As a result culture have been mixed, adapted and transferred to different people of different origins and locations. This is not morally wrong in the setup of traditions but, it creates placelessness for certain qualities of specific cultures like lifestyle, architecture and beliefs to mention a few.
A generation can be educated from another generation about life lessons that will be important to them.

Throughout the history of American literature, many writers have shed light upon the strong work ethic and determination embodied by Americans. However, the shortcomings of different groups of Americans in trying to achieve success despite expressing these characteristics has been made evident by authors explaining how problems from sexism to working conditions have impeded people from being able to succeed. Authors including President Theodore Roosevelt and Ralph Waldo Emerson have praised the traits of hard work and dedication in trying to achieve success as they feel by way of having these traits, it is possible for someone to succeed at what he or she wants to endeavor in. In contrast, writers ranging from Carl Sandburg and Upton Sinclair,
Over the years and throughout time we learn things that are passed down from the people who came before us. We learn things from our parents, or grandparents, and even those who are not part of our family. But in the end it is thanks to those who came before us that we have so much knowledge about things such as technology, clothing, and even food. Chocolate for example is a snack that many people consume daily as well as an ingredient that we see in many foods today, and has become very important for people all around the world. But chocolate is something that has evolved over the years to get to were it is.
William Shakespeare once stated, "Experience comes from hard work and is perfected over the course of time..." in his play The Two Gentlemen of Verona (Act 1: Scene 3). Experience is the process of getting knowledge or skill that is obtained from doing, seeing, or feeling things, or something that happens which have an effect on you. It is easy to conclude that the most important value of literature is Ethic/Morals, but after looking at the facts, it is evident that experience is the most important value of literature as shown in William Shakespeare 's play "Macbeth" and Sir Philip Sidney 's sonnets "Astrophil and Stella" and "Sonnet 39". Experience is the most important value of literature.
