In the study of literature it is very important that you know exactly what you are reading and that you completely understand the meaning behind the stories, poems, or plays. When reading the stories you must fully be able to apply many different analogical structures and also different literature theories to them. When reading the stories about lovers and marriage that are going to be listed in my final paper here, you can truly see how they give many great examples of all the things you need to make literature studies work. In choosing the following stories I have decided that they are the closest things related to my personal life. “The Story of an Hour”, “The Necklace”, and “The Proposal”. I do believe that these are wonderful works of literature and that they can be fully understood and just work with any person that is open to reading different literature pieces. I do believe that if you are willing to sit down and take the time to read these stories that you will see just how wonderful life with someone can truly be. The way that you need to approach literature is as followed,” The first objection might take this form, in which the reader is imagined to think that this study has not gone far enough. Such readers will have agreed that the theories of literature offered (implicitly or explicitly) by the institutionalist critics discussed above are inadequate in differing but central aspects. They will agree that the dialogue which takes place between the work and its writer and readers as it develops is as important as that which takes place between the work and its origins in philosophical, psychological, and historical causation. They will agree, in short, that works of literature are capable of resisting and transforming institutional contamination as well as succumbing to it.” Cited Lansdown, R.

I believe that it is also important to really do the following as well. When you are reading “The Story of An Hour” you need to be able to understand that you are reading a story about a woman who experiences a lot of different emotions and experiences a great life trauma. Once you are capable of understanding this reading then you will be able to understand that this is a strong story about trying to understand the great things that can change your life in a few moments on any given day. When I was reading this story, I did find myself being able to relate to it. That may be because I have a heart condition my own self and it was easier to understand that meaning in the story line. For myself in reading this I found that I was using the reader response. I have always been the type of person that has tried to read a story and express my emotions to it by trying to understand and relate to what I am reading. You have to try to use a reader response whenever you are reading a new story or poem. You need to be able to understand the meanings in a story in order to fully either appreciate it or feel nothing towards the story or poem. I however can not see how you would get no feeling what so ever from reading “The Story of An Hour”, because it is very emotional, heartfelt, and warm. When reading the story you can see how the story is unfolding and leading up to a wonderful ending, even if it very sad at the end as well. When reading any story though you need to be aware of how you can understand any type of story. This is a story that is going to involve you needing to use many different resources in order to fully understand that the writer is trying to use a great expression as to how the lady died in the aftermath of her husband was also found to be dead from a railroad accident. According to the story here you can understand just how the lady probably felt as she was leading up to her...
