Assuming that an author's main purpose in writing is to convey an idea, what have this semester's authors told you? Choose 3-5 works you've read for this course (this may include summer reading, literature analysis novels, plays, articles, essays and poems). For each, briefly describe what you think is the author's primary message and purpose for writing. Do this WITHOUT summarizing the plot or falling for the old "writers just want to entertain or get rich" nonsense.
