Examples of evidence in the literature
Example # 1: The bluest eye (by Tony Morrison)
“I talk about how I did not plant the seeds too deeply, how it was the fault of the earth, our earth, our people. I even think now that the land of the whole country was hostile to marigolds that year; this soil is bad for certain types of flowers; certain seeds will not grow, certain fruits will not produce, and when the earth kills by itself. Of our own free will, we accept and say that the victim had no right to live. ”

Morrison evidently looks at the environment, as it has powerful effects on people. She provides strong evidence that the Earth itself is not fertile for calendula seeds. she cannot survive in a hostile environment.

Example # 2: The color of water Juliet (By James McBride)
”'... as she cried, she staggered and stooped, did not fall. She responded with speed and movement. She wouldn't stop moving "While she was riding her bike, she was walking, she was riding the bus all over town", she kept moving as if her life depended on it, which somehow happened. She ran, as she had for most of her life, but this time she did it for her own sanity. '"

McBride supports his arguments and understanding of a mother as an individual who keeps moving in her life and does not stop to think

Sit-down meals are a time to share and connect with others; however, that connection has become less valued, as families begin to value individual activities instead of shared time, promoting self-centeredness about group identity. makes the link between his claim (question) and the evidence (logic), which is powerful

Role of evidence
When writing something about literature or a particular text, a writer needs to strengthen his discussion by providing powerful answers from the text such as evidence of the questions it raises. It is not enough to simply put quotations around the text and expect their relevance and importance to be self-evident to one's arguments.

The fact is that the mere assertion and reasoning does not convince the audience. Audience will only believe what the writer or speaker has to say when they show strong evidence to support their argument. Hence, evidence not only helps the writer convince his readers, but also persuades them to feel sympathy or support his reasoning. Mostly political speakers, research writers, and editors use evidence extensively to turn public opinion for or against a subject.
