Reading Response Due

Show how, in the reading for June 9th, Welty follows one of the following aesthetic principles:

• Denies a clear distinction of between interior and exterior (perhaps look at how setting or symbols do this)
• Emphasizes emotional experience (rather than plot)
• Posits the necessity of art interpreting experience (we talked about this one in terms of pattern)
• Illustrates the importance of art communicating interpretation (but acknowledges the difficulty of language to communicate; she argues that vague, obscure writing may sometimes do a better job of communicating with reader)
• Shows importance of community though the common experience that links humanity is one of isolation and mystery
