158 Words1 Page
I had never heard of Tillie Olsen before this reading this story. I found “I Stand Here Ironing” to be very interesting to say the least. She is an excellent writer but I would not say I am a fan of her work. I found this story to be a difficult read and I unfortunately could not find any interest in it. I mean I understand that Emily and her mother had many hardships that they faced during their lives, but I feel like it would be a more enjoyable read if Olsen would have went into more detail about Emily growing up and how she overcame the challenges of having a physical differences then other people. The story was pretty vague and only went into detail for certain small parts of the story. I guess I was looking for a success story for Emily
