Response 1, Week 6; Elizabeth Wood
Elizabeth, as you have read from me, I am in love with southern culture and the imagery that your writing presents was fantastic. I love how you started off the work with the phrase ‘Northern Aggression’ and followed up this lament by capitalizing the phrase. This really creates an emphasis on the confusion between northern and southern culture and enhances the tension between the speaker and the person being addressed. Next I’d like to say that your ‘southern’ images are spot on. The red clay, used tires and fried green tomatoes really create a sense of authenticity and you handled the cataloguing of these images with grace. The humor used also created a very enjoyable read.
