I believe my villanelle has been my greatest achievement. Not only was it extremely challenging and took lots of effort and research, but it was also very meaningful and enriching for me to write.

How do writers from different eras or movements write differently?
Writers from different eras and movements write differently for multiple reasons. First of all, they obviously write differently because of the varying speaking styles that are common for the time and place they live in. For example, as we saw when reading Shakespeare, both the grammar and the colloquialisms of his time period were very different from ours, resulting in distinct language use. Second, due to cultural differences, the connotations of their symbols are very different. This is also seen in Shakespeare, as the Ghost in Shakespeare’s literature was intended by Shakespeare to been seen in a much more grave and sinister manner than it is perceived by a modern audience. This can change the meaning of the writing. Beyond time period differences, however, the third difference in the writing styles of writers from various movements is that their writing differ in response to the messages they seek to transmit to their readers. Feminists like Jane Austen who wrote books like “Pride and Prejudice” with the intent of demonstrating that women have equal wit to men write with a different style than people like Joseph Conrad, author of “Heart of Darkness”, who are trying to prove a distinct point. The writing style of different authors depends heavily on what personal opinion the author is attempting to persuade the audience of.
