The Fishing Essay
The opening for the essay isn’t that powerful I feel like she could’ve used a different opening to make the essay easier to grasp. The essay was great nonetheless; she can really paint a picture with her words. She really has a knack for descriptions I really felt like I was in the story. There is such much descriptions packed into a small essay that could have been at least 5 pages longer. In the grandmother’s dream she goes fishing and this dream occurs every night it seems. The grand daughter just pushes it to the side because the family knows that the grandmother has gone totally senile. Richard’s grandmother genuinely thinks that she went fishing with her dead father. It’s kind of creepy that her grandmother thinks of her dead husband but it brings her joy to think that she gets to be with him every night.
