    the difference

    I would like to ask native speakers of English the following questions.

    Whenever I see this doll, there comes back into my mind the memory of something I saw in France.

    Whenever I see this doll, the memory of something I saw in France comes back into my mind.

    #1 Are both of them corrct?

    #2 What's the difference of the sence between the two sentences?

    #3 In what case, which is preferable?

    Thank you very much.

    #1 Are both of them correct? Yes, they are both correct

    #2 What's the difference of the sense between the two sentences? No difference. The first one is a more literary method of writing this.

    #3 In what case, which is preferable? For everyday writing, the second one.

    Thank you very much.
