William Carlos Williams makes great use of several elements in the presentation of the poem. Some of these elements are language, form and content. First of all I was greatly attracted to the aspect of content. The author chose to narrow down to old age as the essential content of the poem. Actually it activated me as I read through the poem.
This analogy gives Peirce an understanding why age limits a writer’s success, and it consolidates her by informing her that that it is fine if she has not far behind. Lewes connect the idea that maturity and experience matter more in writing than practice. Lewes concedes her mistakes in her writing career in order to help Peirce learn how maturity, pride, and reality all relate to her experiences. Lewes acknowledges, “I was too proud and ambitious to write: I did not believe that I could do anything fine, and I did not choose to do anything of that mediocre sort which I despised so much when it was done by others.” Lewes implants familiar diction to remind Peirce of her earlier points. Lewes was “proud and ambitious,”
Yes, the information was very relevant to the topic. It provided a lot of different ways to approach critical thinking while reading. It shows that a person must be assertive, open minded, ability and willingness to think critical while reading materials and papers. What I liked the best about it was taking the time while reading to stop and analyze the writing and think about the subject so you have a better understanding of it. The information really stayed on topic while all the different views of the reading, it’s really showed how critical thinking while reading is very important Does the information reflect a bias on the author’s part?
I love a story that is very detailed because it gives me the chance to place myself in the story and really get into it. I can compare my life to what is written in the book and it just makes the reading much more interesting and fun.
Flowers then encouraged Marguerite, “to listen carefully to what country people called mother wit.” which means a person needs more than just book smarts to be consider intelligent and to able to use that intelligence to survive in life; a person that has wits though life experiences can be more intelligent than people that just gain knowledge in only school books because the people with wits are more savvy from their social life experiences compare to people that live life educated only though book. Maya Angelou is telling this story because she wanted to teach the audience that a person with formal education by only books doesn’t equate to intelligence. She implies, that even some college professors are less intelligent and don’t have as much wit as to some country folks because, the country folks have learned important lessons in life that only life experiences can teach but books cannot teach these important life lessons, base on the passage she wrote, “That some people, unable to go to school, were more educated and even more intelligent than college professors, to listen carefully to what country people called mother wit.” The story’s settings are important because it was part of U.S history, where blacks were look upon as second class citizens compare to whites. This was suggested in the passage where Marguerite complements her idol Mrs. Flowers whom is a black woman, by comparing her to a white woman,
The Analysis of Percy’s Classifications of Readers The act of reading becomes most effective when it becomes an ongoing collaboration between both the reader and the author of the work. It is one’s responsibility as an effective reader to naturally question and contribute the main ideas of the author, and then work towards developing a deeper understanding of the material. The ability of a person to approach the act of reading with this constructive mindset allows them to be either distinguished as a “common” or a “complex” reader based on how they perceive the work. The ideas presented in the essay "The Loss of the Creature”, written by Walker Percy, allows for readers to be either classified as “common” or “complex” based on the observation of whether they choose to advance on given

Also great literature and writing can take you to peaceful palaces of tranquility and respite in a time of need. Those are just a few of the wonderful things that I feel literature and writing offers us but another thing that I feel its gives us is a sense of freedom and being right or confidence. When I am writing about myself, my thoughts, my feelings or any problems I have it gives me more power I feel, more say so, and it makes me feel as if someone is actually listening to therefore I am free to say what I want to express how I feel and that type of freedom is so relieving. When reading a book gaining knowledge and information that I actually had to pay attention to learn that gives me more confidence in what I am talking about, when I am reading advanced literature books and I notice how they speak that give me more confidence to speak with others because of the dialogue and grammar I have learned from the literature. These things do so much more to us than what we see at the
