      • Dear Jillian:
        I am impressed by the connection you made between the poem , “ Sonnet 129,” because your poem instead of answering your question directly, did it discreetly. You made an inference for the answer to your question due to having the evidence first. It is impressive because you decided to come up with a question backwards.
        One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “From what I understand, a spirit is judged on how they are perceived in human form” I think this is a magnificent catch because you found out what the poem is saying and what is occurring in the poem. With you really understanding the poem, you also understood that someone was being judged for who they really aren’t.
        Another sentence that I really liked was: “I believe the poem is about how one’s life value is judged and whether or not we deserved to be remembered.” This stood out for me because after this line you added evidence from the poem. This sentence was also your beliefs and you stated it.
        Your questions or analysis for your poem reminds me of something that happened to me. I was also questioning my poem and I turned it into a life question.
        Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next.

      • Dear: Jillian
        I am satisfied with your poem, “Sonnet 129,” because your poem is really straightforward. One set of line from stanza 2 line 3-6 that stands out for me is, “Each meaning changes the poem in different ways. The idea that a spirits value is based of how shame it creates is very interesting. What creates shame is a very controversial topic. What brings shame to one’s self or family changes on the person’s ideology therefore this “value” system of a spirit is quite biased and controversial.” I was thinking the same thing and idea because when you first introduced in like in the first stanza it kinda implied that so i was thinking about then when confirmed it i was shocked. Your poem seems so familiar to me i just can’t figure out what it was probably a poem that I once .Thanks for your poem. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I enjoyed your thinking and your choice of words.
