    the sound foundation for “The fine art of sighing”. By definition according to Merriam Webster Dictionary, sighing is “to take a deep audible breath (as in weariness or relief)” however through the depth of Cooper 's writing we find that sighing is a passage to many other emotions and avenues(“sigh”).
