Vincent Cremona in his essay “My Pen Writes in Blue and White” argues that every writer’s style is the result of blending previous patterns taught and learned by observation or by action. Every line of a composition reflects the writer’s personality, but sometimes it combines the personalities of more than one individual. Cremona explains that “the manner in which [he] now write[s] has been directly affected by the two major influences in [his] life, [his] parents” (195). Every writer’s voice is shaped by close relationships which is reflected in his compositions. This voice can be formed during childhood since the human being acts like a sponge absorbing everything around it.

He was the storyteller, the one who kept everyone entertained at naptime.

Moral individuals in the lower classes have less to fall back on, and therefore more to lose. This can often lead to them not handling tragedy well, because they feel as though their morals have failed them.
