After re-reading "Word Warrior" by Jennifer DiMarco, I decided that it is my favorite piece from this year. Before taking this class, "A Story of an Hour" by Kate Chopin would have been my favorite piece. I really enjoyed DiMarco's piece because it made me uncomfortable. I believe by becoming uncomfortable through reading, I grow intellectually and socially. My views are broadened, and by understanding why writers write, whether women or men, can be important to their works of art. I believe this course has really help me broaden my views of women writers. I entered this class hoping that it would make me uncomfortable and would show the views of other people that I have not been exposed to. This course has accomplished my goal, and I am excited to read more books from the authors we have studied, and I may even explore poetry, which I have hated reading in the past.
