The relationship between an author and a reader is a very influential and dynamic one. They each rely on each other and both are just as equally important in their roles. Herman Melville is an author who follows the philosophy of his audience’s powers of reading being just as important as his talents as a writer.

Literature Essay (Stuart Judge): In the literary works that we studied this year: The Book Thief, Purple Hibiscus, Macbeth, Sonnet 101,Sonnet 154 , Kevin Pietersen The Autobiography and Dead Poets Society- all the works have the same central theme :”Words have had the power to transform, for better or worse”.

Since her mother warns her from being a slut she tells her about a medicine that would ‘throw away a child before it even becomes a child”(Kincaid, 470) which suggests that the mother did not trust her daughter and feared that she would become a ‘slut’ despite the constant warnings. “You are not a boy” (Kincaid, 470) perfectly sums up the entire story because this one sentence summarizes all the warnings and advice the mother was giving her daughter.
