  • Literary Analysis Of Little Things By Raymond Carver

    make it better. Admittedly, I should have asked for help sooner and much more than I did, instead of just struggling on my own and not getting very far. In the end, I managed to finish it, though I don’t think I did the best job that I could have done because at that point I was so stressed out about it that I just wanted it done.
