I will always remember my mother and her reading, she was fascinated! She had an enormous book case filled and filled with books! She read anything between a gushy love novel and a suspenseful thriller. My mother was enthralled with books and could not get enough; she took them to work, on trips, pretty much anywhere. Seeing her read so much always gave me the thought that reading was good for the mind and soul!
“A Rose for Emily,” by William Faulkner, was an interesting story about an abnormal woman in the community that everyone talked about. “We Real Cool,” by Gwendolyn Brooks, remind me of the stories my grandfather use to tell me about his community he grew up in.

Reading is an important part of everyday life. That’s why me and my mom read the book “The Glory Field” and had an interview.

The interview was exciting and we mostly had the same views about the story.
This was crucial, because Abigail developed an understanding of western thought and ideals which she used throughout her correspondence. Through her letters, we see Abigail used classical and contemporary literature and those interests motivated her intentions, especially, her passion for intellectual engagement. Because of her status as a Puritan mother, Abigail was limited in most respects but she rose above and developed personal relationships with historical figures which drew on her foundation in literature and scholarly pursuits. She was an avid reader of history and developed into a political advocate of sorts, especially for her husband John.

! Although on the surface, the narrator in the short story, The Yellow Wallpaper, may seem like a ﬁctional character only developed to be interesting to an audience, many comparisons can be drawn between the narrators life and the life of the author Charlotte Perkins Gilman.

The use of sarcasm amuses readers and also is appropriate because they are teenagers. Josie’s description of her teacher and the way she acts towards her is ironic because of the discussion about sex (for example page 3) and her teacher being a nun.
