Poetry is an important part of literature which conveys an author 's ideas across to the reader through the use of descriptive language. Poetry helps an author to express their inner emotions and often incorporates various poetic devices which enriches the text.

Mary Fairfax was born on 28th December 1780, in a Mansion on the Scottish Borders. In a time when women were not considered full citizens- with no right to vote, and a minimal education provided only to the ladies of the elite, Mary Fairfax broke all boundaries to prove to society that gender and brilliance are not mutually excusive. Her story is one of courage and determination. Having read through her biography, I was convinced that she was a fascinating human being. In this essay I will focus on the socio-cultural context of her accomplishments, particularly due to her gender.
Complex issues and ideas are those that can be argued for or against, and both arguments have their suitable and understandable points. In the film Stranger Than Fiction by Marc Forster, the complex ideas of literature making us socialise, routines isolate us, and needing people to change are lives are argued through the use of composition, long shots, and symbolism. In the text Stranger Than Fiction, complex issues have been constructed through visual techniques. Harald Crick, the protagonist, is an anti social character. The text suggests this is because of his love for maths, rather than english and literature.
Poetry is a unique expression of ideas, feelings, and emotions. Every poet has their own style of writing as well as their own personal goals when creating poems. Mary Oliver is a perfect example of these characteristics. Oliver primarily focuses on the topics of nature and life which can be seen everyday.

Attention. Attention is something all authors desire to have from the audience when reading his or her book. Attention can be drawn by the author is various ways whether it is through the writing itself or the style.

Many authors have their own person way of writing like including facts in their literary works or putting their own opinions into the mix. Emily Dickenson and Robert Frost are two poets that focus on themselves; they share their opinions, emotions, and thoughts through their writing and build a community of people who agree with them. Both of these talented writers are very keen on keeping a running theme that stands as their central idea; Emily’s poems are about seeing things in a new and different light while Robert’s poems are built around central metaphors and his past experiences. Aside from focusing on themselves, they have a few poems that describe the experience and emotions of an induvial person like Frost’s “Home Burial” and Dickenson’s “He ate and drank the precious words”. Emily Dickenson was a poet who expresses her deep emotions and thoughts that she experiences naturally over time; she doesn’t worry about getting things right nor does she worry about what people will think of her poems.
Every literary work has its own purpose of existence and no literary is the same. There is always literary work for someone to be interested in. the authors use different techniques in order to attract the readers, such as rhythm, rhyme, characters, settings, characters, theme, and conflict and other techniques.

In the article of “The American Blindspot”, the main point is to show the differing interpretations of the Reconstruction era that arose between Foner and Du Bois. Du Bois poses the idea that the slaves are to be seen as humans and argues the side of the slaves whereas Foner argues from the side in which views the capitalistic side of Reconstruction. In Du Bois’s argument, he makes sure to clarify that he sees the slaveholders as owners of capital rather than just the wealthy elite. In turn, Foner describes the slaveholders as the ruling class and stays away from calling slaves the working class or proletarians. Foner places Reconstruction as a bourgeois revolution whereas Du Bois views the era as having two Reconstructions.
A writer’s style is exclusive only to him or her. It is what sets them apart from each other and makes them memorable. An author’s style can be a potent tool, but it is subject to change based on a number of factors. Jon Krakauer, a critically acclaimed writer, is praised for his journalistic and narrative writing styles in books such as Into Thin Air and Missoula. The polarity between these books required Krakauer to change his approach while still keeping the fundamentals of what makes him unique.
Many authors such as, J.R.R Tolkien, use their writing to get entertain, inform, or persuade. While writing the author may put their own opinions in a book or novel. By including a character with certain traits they believe to be viewed in a positive light or they may include a character that has traits they view in a negative light.

Intelligence is more important and Tolkien shows what he feels is positive through Bilbo the main character and negative through Bilbo’s enemies.

Using the work of other fellow writers, Baldwin summarizes their work and uses literary elements to paint a bigger picture.
Almost every author has a style or way of writing, and in most cases there is good reasoning behind it, and Shirley Jackson is no different. Out of all of Jackson’s work four of her short stories show some extreme similarities in her writing, and those four are “The Tooth”,” Island”,” Cauliflower in her hair”, and “The Lottery”. All of these stories start out ordinary, and end up taking a turn for the worst rather quickly, which can relate to life and how quickly life can change for the good or bad in the matter of seconds. The same can be said about how all of her characters in these stories seem to just be having a bit of bad luck, which makes the story turn for the worst. Jackson is very clever in how she does this, she never comes right
