feminism can be quite one-sided if a male reader were to interfere with some of the novels ideas as it may be personally invalid in their eyes. but I must say you do a splendid job of accurately illustrating the lives of common, everyday people- most of them women- by creating vivid images that provoke thoughts, feelings, and moods. For example, in your famous novel, The Bean Trees you describe the neighborhood in which Taylor and Lou Ann live in Arizona as being "a little senile, with arthritic hinges and window screens hanging at embarrassing angles… transformed in ways that favored function over beauty." Displayed an image, which was both humorous and serious, but gave us readers a clear
picture of Taylor's physical surroundings.Furthermore, the use of your unique native southern Kentucky language contributes to the realistic representation of the simple, ordinary life lived by the characters in your novel. For example, Taylor and Lou Annboth grew up in rural Kentucky and considered themselves hillbillies. I also recall to them feeling comfortable with each other because they talked alike, using expressions such as "I'll swan" and "ugly as a mud stick fence."
