English literature and language has been a subject that has gripped me, particularly in recent years. I believe that this strong passion stems from the way in which I’m capable of immersing myself into certain texts and the challenges of understanding the author’s emotions and inner thoughts. A major fascination to me is the sense timelessness that literature carries, for example Eavan Boland constantly blends the past and the present in her poetry. In this way, one can not only escape the current ongoings but also explore the findings of previous generations. It is an incredible thing to be able to delve into the minds of those that we may never meet.
Bartleby, in his story "The Scrivener" and Stephen Crane, in his book "The Bride Comes to Yellow Sky Summary" aim at ensuring that they capture the attention of their audience based on their literary works.

Much like figurative language improves basic language, the use of similes, metaphors and symbolism add to the reader’s experience. By using figurative language, a writer draws his reader into the world he has made, which then urges the reader to be a dynamic member of it - to feel what the persona feels, to see what they see. For me, in spite of the advantages given by the usage of figurative language, there is the risk for the poet that the audience may not be able to recognize “what is meant from what is said” (Dibbs 2). But when a poem is understandable, “when it conveys new poetic insights about human experience”, we acknowledge that author for possessing a unique scholarly endowment (Dibbs
Reader response criticism is a literary critical theory. It is promoted and developed by a variety of literary theorists and critics. Depending on the person advancing the concept, the theory may take on any number of nuanced meanings. Generally speaking however, reader response criticism suggests that a text gains meaning by the purposeful act of a reader’s reading and interpreting it. The relationship between reader and text is highly valued; text does not exist without a reader.
