She visited her hometown often. She walks through the neighborhood and visited her old school. She got people to tell her about their lives and that’s her inspiration for her stories. Even though her characters don’t look like her nor act like her, she wants her readers to have the same heart and desire for love and romance (Sharon Flake p.2). This is why most of her books have a bit of innocent romance in them.
So what happens after the event is sometimes more significant than the event itself. The author exposes to the readers how a family copes with such a tragedy. The reason she might have written is because she knew someone who experienced something similar to incident the book. Writing can be a way to relieve a person, like how Kate writes letters to her friend Amy but can really mail them. Or perhaps the author wrote about a subject she felt strongly about, in a letter sent to Hazel Hutchins, the author, she responded by saying the story is based on some personal matters and situations taken from real life.
Karri Hollingsworth Dana Hatcher ENG-111-WA 5 October 2011 Theme’s found in Literature One reason I love to read is because depending on the choice of book, a feeling and an escape is provided. Different Author’s can trigger an emotion and deepen our understanding of a certain subject. Patricia Cornwell is a murder/mystery writer who provides these aspects for me and shows different themes throughout most of her fiction novels. For me, her writing is “escape literature” providing entertainment all while making me ask myself “what is it that she is trying to say?” I have read Patricia Cornwell’s entire “Kay Scarpetta” series and each of these novels reveals several recurring themes; courage, ambition, happiness.

GEORGIA O’KEEFE Among the great American artists of the 20th-century, Georgia O’Keeffe stands as one of the most compelling. For nearly a century, O’Keeffe’s representations of the beauty of the American landscape were a brave counterpoint to the chaotic images embraced by the art world. Her cityscapes and still lifes filled the canvas with wild energy that gained her a following among the critics as well as the public. Though she has had many imitators, no one since has been able to paint with such intimacy and stark precision. Georgia O’Keeffe was born in Sun Prairie, Wisconsin in 1887.
In her work “I Stand Here Ironing” Olsen uses the theme of regret and the mother’s inner conflict to show her concern about her daughter’s life.

Tillie Lerner Olsen was born on January 14, 1912 to Russian-Jewish immigrant parents in Wahoo, Nebraska and moved to Omaha while a young child (Rohrberger).

Lauren Wain Compare the presentation of the struggle for female identity in ‘Educating Rita’ and ‘The Yellow Wallpaper’ Educating Rita and The Yellow Wallpaper both present a struggle for female identity. Educating Rita was written by Willy Russell, in 1985, so it was an early 20th century text. The Yellow Wallpaper was written by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, in 1892, so it was a late 19th century text. Willy Russell was born in Whiston into a Liverpool background; his writing often focuses on the classes in society, this is shown through many of his texts, such as Blood Brothers and Our Day Out, which holds a very accessible style which gives the readers the easier understanding of such an modern text. Charlotte Perkins Gilman was an early feminist writer, in the plight of middle class, in which women experienced being trapped in their institutional marriages through a male dominated society.
