How do the connections between the two texts enrich the meaning of each text? When considered on their own, texts are constructed to create meaning and impart that meaning on a responder. However when two linked texts a considered together, their meanings are enriched as the responder can compare both texts, and take extra meaning from how the two texts differ and agree with each other, by evaluating which is more effective. Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice when read in isolation can be a simple bildungsroman narrative about the maturation of a young woman. However if the responder were to read Fay Weldon’s Letters to Alice on first reading Jane Austen, the connections between the two would shape and then reshape the responder’s understanding of both texts.

The cycle has 6 stages – firstly to tell the story, then to consider how you felt, then what were the thoughts and feelings of others involved and how you knew these, followed by what were your options and what would you do if the situation arose again. The following account will go explain each one of these stages.
In the Time of the Butterflies Essay: Effect of a Shifting Point of View The changing point of view helps reveal character development and analysis by showing how the characters themselves assess the situation. While Maria, Patria, and Minerva’s chapters are written in first person, Dedé’s chapters are written in third person to give the reader both types of point of views. As the book progresses, the reader gradually learns more and more about each individual character. As you alternate the point of views, you gain more perspective on the issues at hand. While the sister will have different opinions on situations, seeing these personalized viewpoints help the reader to make a connection to all the sisters and furthermore, the entire book.

In Alice Walker's "Everyday Use", she uses symbolic quilts to express the differences of understanding one's heritage within a single family. The main characters in this story are Mrs. Johnson, Maggie and Dee. Both Maggie and Dee want to keep the handmade quilts to remind them of their grandmother who passed away and of the family heritage.
