Unformatted text preview: In terms of research, the most recent experience I've had with it was senior year of high school, when we were expected to write a research paper. A lot of this work was completely independent in that we had the freedom to pick our own topic in concern with any work of literature and the research was entirely up to us. We did have stepping stones and deadlines to guide us through the process but for the most part we were on our own. My teacher expected us to go through books and online articles that critiqued the work of an author or the themes the author was portraying. I personally see research as an extensive study on a specific idea or concept leading to certain postulates and theories that can be proven and argued. It includes evidence in support and in objection to these arguments and reasons behind those positions. My hope as a writer is to continually and significantly improve. I wish to learn a lot more on research and how to incorporate it effectively into my persuasive arguments. By being in WR150, I want to learn how to be a better researcher – being able to find the most convincing arguments and critiques that were written by others. I wish to one day be a surgeon and I know that that includes an extensive amount of research and papers. I 9 Jung hope that the skills I learn this semester and later will help me form formal, informative papers that may be published during my time as a doctor.

Yes. Starts to attain a deeper understanding, but it all gets lots. (113). GW has “inchoate impulses that are more or less in the right direction” Mentions Reefy’s name A happy ending that reveals GW's final maturation. “climactic tale” (112) (114). Maturity = “moment one hears death calling..,” Is a good thing. His m unders GW b than a charac Repres of the grotes a who “'This be allo expres someth us bot (109). Sczesiul Although most people agree that GW progresses and many characters try to help him, but in reality he doesn't learn anything or mature emotionally or artistically as a writer and so probably won't succeed outside Winesburg and will turn out like all the others. No. GW tries to push himself to understand, but fails. (3) (Side note: GW awakens to his father's satisfaction.) Nothing… Though GW has a profound moment with HW, overall, the relationship proves GW's immaturity because he misunderst ands/rejects relationship (4)....
