Woolf was educated by her parents in their literate and well-connected household at 22Hyde Park Gate[ 5], Kensington.

Linda Pastan was a great poet while also a wife and mother. Pastan started sending her work to The New Yorker at age twelve (Potvin par. 6). Later, she went to college and got married. Pastan stated in an interview that she stopped writing for about ten years, because she could not be the perfect wife and mother that she was expected to be and also commit herself to her poetry (Brown, 3).
She too married out of fear of society. When she was 23, “old” by 1880s standards, she married a fellow member of the elite class; Edward Roberts Wharton. He was 13 years older than her and both agreed they were not suited for each other. After twenty-eight years of traveling, buying homes, and Edith writing they divorced. During their rocky marriage, Edith designed and built their home called The Mount.
She has already lost so much, more than a sixteen year old should. Her mom died of cancer, which left her in the mother role for her younger sisters. Soon after Ma died, her older brother Lawton left. When he left, she then became the oldest which put a lot more responsibilities on her. Mattie then gets accepted into Barnard, a college in New York City.
The way an author writes a work can mean the difference between interest or the lack of interest. When first reading “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” a reader may find the ending quite a shock. However, if another author would write the same plot, the shock may not exist, but, because of the many techniques displayed by Ambrose Bierce throughout his work, readers remain interested and shocked upon first reading the last line. Techniques Bierce display in his work, such as use of point of view, literary devices, and plot developments, prove useful throughout “An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge” by peaking the reader’s interest and keeping him or her trying to guess what exactly happened. Bierce employs two forms of point of view throughout his work, third-person omniscient and third-person limited.
Although all her examples, evidence, and points make her writing more effective it also becomes problematic for other, unintended audience members, and to the way society might begin to portray Millennials. Tyler ends her article by stating that millennials are “intelligent, well-educated and quick to draw remarkably accurate conclusions,” (482) but when she uses words like “deal,” (482) and “prepare” (481) that have negative connotations, it alludes that we are a burden and that people need to be concerned. Not only does she mention Helicopter parents, but she also doesn’t hold the older generation accountable for raising millennials the way they did or still do. The article, although it is well written and makes many frank points that many of us do, becomes problematic when we consider that not all people are the same. Every person is an individual and unique, not only are people individuals, but also in this day and age many people, older and newer generations, do the things that we stereotypically do.
From examining the stories of influential women and the language used the audience receives an emotion of doubt and fear but in order to show that change can happen. Looking at the credibility of the authors and the site of publication the audience is able to trust the information being provided. Through the logos appeal, the audience is able to believe the argument presented with all the evidence provides from professors to companies. In the end, women should take away the idea that they should not doubt themselves and just go for the
