Hey Nadia,

Your post regarding Faulkner’s “As I Lay Dying” and your own personal connection to the human heart forge great moments for the human psyche to expand on ideas which Faulkner brings to the table. First and foremost, the beginning line, “The difficulties, experiences, and the euphoric memories that bring happiness during times in our lives.” feels a bit short and brief maybe you could expand on these feelings and how they may be the sole reason for happiness or even heartache. The metaphor of the human heart is like a “tug of war” is such a good reflection of the heart. When you get to the middle the sentences feel like you have so much to say which makes the sentences feel congested. Having a look at some linking verbs would be a great way to form a relationship between the many ideas you want to discuss.

Overall, I love the concept that you have been able to express from “As I Lay Dying” and Faulkner’s Nobel prize speech, as well as the image/quote of Faulkner’s, is personally one of my favourites!

Keep up the great work!

– Annaliese 🙂
