Annie Dillard Blog Response

Annie Dillard’s childhood shared many similarities with mine. She goes through relatively normal childhood things like being scared of a monster in her room. Her family also quite humorous, which I can say is a quality shared with my family. In addition, she had similar interests as me such as drawing and sports. If I had to pick a difference between Annie’s childhood and mine, it would be the marvel at technology. At one point in the story, Annie talks about the polio vaccine and how great it is. She also go into detail at one point about industrialization. In the modern times, these are not usually stressed as much because it seems with all the technological advancements we have today that something new is almost a daily occurrence. Dillard writes about Pittsburgh in a historical sense and is clearly well versed in it, as she she references several historical events.
