Eudora Welty was a renowned American author who used literary themes and devices to describe the complexities of the human mind and soul. Through her short stories, Welty paints a vivid portrait based on morals, hardships, and human relationships. In her stores, Welty combines this with humor and psychological acuity to allow the audience a glimpse into the lives of her characters and to learn something of themselves in the process. Two of her most famous short works are “Death of a Traveling Salesman” and “A Worn Path”. In her works like “Death of a Traveling Salesman”, Eudora Welty reminds her readers that modernization and work isn’t always a good thing and that we should enjoy our lives. In “A Worn Path,” Welty demonstrates that anyone can accomplish anything if they struggle and work hard for it, even if the path towards success is a difficult one. However, in today’s society many people have forgotten these traditional values and are forgetting what morals are, what human relationships are like beyond the 4.55 pound of technology, and what it’s like to think for themselves and learn from their own interpretations.
Choice theory says that before a person commits a crime they weigh the consequences and benefits of their actions before committing the action, however, what the person does not get to consider is the unforeseeable consequences of their actions behinds those criminal acts, that is the invisible punishments. When defendants go before a judge and plead guilty, the judge engages them in a colloquy, this is a conversation between the judge and defendant making sure the defendant was not coerced into pleading guilty, that they were not under the influence of drugs or alcohol, and that they are pleading guilty because they are guilty. What is not openly discussed is all the other privileges they would be giving up by pleading guilty.
Society today, things seem to be a bit easy for us as far as traveling for healthcare or the means of getting medication, however, it was the total opposite for Phoenix Jackson in Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path.” Instead of having the ability to commute utilizing mobile transportation, Phoenix found herself in a situation that required her to walk, but it was not just an easy and peaceful one. In “A Worn Path”, the journey that Phoenix Jackson was on showed how she was valued within her society as an old, black, female. Phoenix faced several challenges in order for her to succeed on her journey. The thought of taking a path initially make me think about the distance and will one be able to finish it.
“Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.” Lao Tzu Human history has been shaped by the two most powerful forces of nature: love and hate. There are plenty of real or fictional stories written about them. But love has had the most remarkable and positive impact on our history, because love represents kindness and compassion towards others.

A Worn Path story by Eudora Welty is an exciting and amazing story that I love to read. It is a short story about a very old black woman, Phoenix Jackson who preserves heroically in the difficult circumstances which mean she encounters many hardships on her way to find the medicine to cure his grandson. She is not only and elder, but brittle and lonely as well. But for a good portion of the story, she never gives up in a journey into town because she is on the mission to help one she loves. This action takes place in December, circa 1940, in southwestern Mississippi. The scene begins in the wilderness and then shifts to the city of Natchez. I admire the cleverness of the author, Eudora Welty. She presents the story in third-person
2) Considering the crime the knight committed by raping an innocent girl is unfair but he was punished justly for his crime. Having him killed by King Arthur's decision would have been too harsh for him. However, the queen's response about him going on a journey in search of finding what all women desire for a year and a day was mild even though it's stressful and humiliating for a knight.

He was forced to do so because he had no other options which left him "in a state of sadness and disgust" for sometimes while his wife keep smiling. Furthermore, on his wedding night Chaucer depict that there was " no joy or feast at all but heaviness of heart and sorrow " for him. He
