      I was really amazed by the way you wrote your analysis about the three stories that you entitled “Literary Analysis Comparing Three Stories” because there are some really highlighted parts that makes your analysis really powerful. The first part is “three stories are similar to each other because all the characters are learning something in different situations”. I totally agree with what you said because in the “Lesson” story the kids learned something really important from their teacher who is Ms.Moore. In the story “How to Date a Brown girl”. The narrator is learning how to date girls in differentes races. In the story “Everyday Use”, the sister’s mother is learning from her only child who had education. The second part is “three stories are similar because the main characters are learning in different situations. Either through poverty or from someone with experience in life”. I really like this part of your writing because all three stories are talking about inequality and bringing the fact that people are learning from their financial status is clever. The third part of your analysis is “this set of short stories are good to study in high school or college because it teaches us a lot of different topics such as culture, appearance, wealth gap, and something very important that is education”. I think it is really clever to bring up the fact these stories are importantes because many students who want to pursue their career in this path, this is like a previous to them. Thank you so much for your analysis “Literary Analysis Comparing Three Stories” . I am really looking forward to seeing what you will accomplish next.

      I am fascinated with your short story, “Maggie’s hard life,” because related that the life of a girl that have scars on her skin. Its difficult to adapt and have confidence in herself. She always feel sad by her issue and feel different by her sister.
      One of the lines that stands out for me is,have noticed that,”Mama always paid more attention to dee than me. I was the black sheep of the family.” These lines represent the difference she look in her Mama about her sister. She related her feelings.
      Your short story “Maggie’s hard life,” helps me to understand the problem that faced some people with issues in their personality.
      Thanks for your short story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. I hope you post interesting texts like this one.

    • Dear Lenin:
      I am very attracted to you story “Maggie’s hard life”, because of the choice that you made to describe a story like “ Everyday Use” that is already complicated but putting your point of view makes it such as understandable piece of writing that is analyzed in the best way to make it as clear as you could be able to put not just details of the story but to proof a piece of yourself as a writer in to an already established and developed almost a new story with the sense of the importance of family involvement. One of the most impacted pieces stated on your story that stands out to me is when you said, “I was like the black sheep of the family”. I think this line resemble how you got into the character’s mindset,because the way that you are able to describe what she felt happening to the character in a deeper way than what we could read shows how overwhelming her life was whole this creates a sense of satisfaction in the reader when a writer is able to make the deep of a description and characterization . Another quote that stands out for me is “ I always felt ashamed that Dee saw me”. I think this expresses the desire of the main character of been treated differently while fighting for her family to be together again like before. Your story reminds me of the original story with a more narrative tone because of the description almost letting the reader see how the character feels about how her family view her as. “ Everyday Use” express more in a narrative way.
      Thanks for your story. I look forward to seeing what you make next. What would bring me back to read any of your story is the appreciation to the description, narration and characterization in the story that is very much attached to the original version.
