I find myself following in the literary footsteps of my beloved sister, Alyssa. Her pure love for reading and her stretched imagination has intrigued me ever since I was younger. She always had her nose in a book, and being her little brother I tried to emulate her thirst for words. My sister is my role model, in my everyday life, but I also have to look up to her when it comes to reading and writing. She is able to manipulate words to conform a complete and truly beautiful thought.
After the Fort Sumter was forced to surrender by the Confederate troops, Lincoln declared war. Since he was running a centralized government rather than the South that believed in states’ rights over central government, Lincoln was able to efficiently mobilize Union’s people and resources. That, of course, played an essential role in the final victory, and is one of Lincoln’s greatest accomplishments. The victory of the Union affects today’s society just as much, or maybe even more that the War for Independence. As mentioned, Civil War is the underlying event of American history and further formation of its culture.
In trying to make everything perfect things have gone horribly wrong, like the society in Brave New World. In any novel where the world is supposed to be super perfect, believe that the world is incredibly messed up, also believe that the main character in the novel is going to be the only person or one of only a few people who recognizes just how messed up things are. That is what happens in Brave New Worlds society, no one has to feel pain, be afraid of death or deal with anything, even the slightest bit of un-comfort, and everything is extremely stable. There is lots of sex and drugs to keep people happy, or totally oblivious. The point Huxley wanted to convey in Brave New World was once you sacrifice liberty from one hundred percent order bad things happen.
All this is happening while the government of the society is doing everything in its power to make you believe that this was the most ideal living situation for you. The world I’m describing is a dystopia. The world dystopia goes back to the roots of the greek word dys, meaning bad, and topos, meaning world. Citizens in an dystopian society never question their government. they are either brainwashed or too scared to speak up against the injustices being performed in their society.
It is required that the estate be passed down to a male for two main reasons. The first reason is that if a woman was to inherit the estate and she did not marry the estate would be passed down to no one. This is because there would be no children to inherit the estate.

I remember my parents reading with me and it was the most meaningful and memorable way to spend time with me. This is because I liked reading a lot and I was eager to learn so that I could fit in with my older siblings. My favorite books were storybooks taking about adventures and fairytales since they created fantasizes for me (Rodriguez 16). My parents read the stories aloud for me to understand and I have come to see that it was important for them to do so since it helped me a great deal. My sister would read me stories from her own books and it confused my little head, considering that the level of education she was in was high for me at that time.
She was also a very innovative author; she helped to shape new ways of writing in her works. Through examining Jane’s relationships, dynamics of her writing, and novels themselves, we will be able to have a much broader understanding of Jane. Firstly, Jane lived a fairly quiet childhood. Her parents stressed academics profusely and encouraged their children to indulge in their father’s library consistently. Although Jane lived a rather provincial life, through her brothers refined lifestyles she was able to experience exquisite things.

Joyce drew on aspects like this of her grandmother’s life to write the novel “The Gravediggers Daughter”.
Maya Angelou is sixteen years older so she started her writing career when Prudence Mackintosh was a child.

Angelou's writings influenced her views on racism in her small town. An old friend of hers from college became editor of Texas Monthly Magazine.
