How do you plan to improve your writing in the future?
My writing has progressed already, but I hope that I can improve by focusing on editing. Editing is the refinement process, and what I have struggled w/ in the past has been the specific details of my writing. So hopefully, if I can improve my editing, I can sharpen those details.
Which aspects of your application do you want to emphasize, & how?
I want to emphasize my willingness to explore different subjects--in other words, my intellectual curiosity. The best way to achieve this seems to be by focusing on a specific example in some of my essays.
What effect does Marquez create by his repetition of names in 100 Years of Solitude, & how does it develop other themes in the novel?
Gabriel Garcia Marquez used names repeatedly--Arcadio, Jose, & others--to emphasize the circular progression that the town was undergoing. The recurring names draw parallels to each of the characters predecessors, proving the importance of Marquez's theme of familial & individual history.
