At the beginning of the book, Gladwell narrates short stories to prove that we should trust our snap judgments. However, by the middle of it, the anecdotes are used as evidence that unconscious decisions are not good. In addition, the book fails to explain how this process works psychologically or neurologically, as well
By nature, shorter poems are more densely packed with cues and devices because authors cannot express their intended message over the sweeping length of a poem but rather they must be more concise and creative. A poet may write a shorter poem to juxtapose a simple surface message to a more meaningful deeper message. Thus, complexity and artistic value are unrelated to length, but rather, they are developed through masterful writing. “Good Times” by Lucille Clifton embodies the double-edged sword of complex storytelling within a short poem, as she identifies the speaker 's occasional good memories to develop an image of the speaker’s typical abject life. The short poem is crafted with patterns of repetition, for there are so few lines to fit meaningful insight into.
In short, one may conclude that both writers—Nunez and Meza—approached their ideas using different techniques of writing. This includes their respective writing styles, point development and appeals to their target audience. However, it is blatantly obvious that both authors lacked depth in their writing and it could have been significantly improved if their articles were slightly lengthier. Nevertheless, it is still fair to say that these two writers succeeded in writing out their respective opinions on such a sensitive
Next, I went on to Opensourceshakespeare.org and found the word hope in The Tragedy of Romeo and Juliet. The passage I chose was difficult to understand because of the type of language William Shakespeare used, and because it was taken out of context. After that I went looking for a poem. I first searched for poems involving the word hope at Bartleby.com, but I couldn 't find one worth using; so, I then went to Poemhunter.com and again found nothing. Finally, I went to Poetrysoup.com and found a deserving poem.
It makes us analyze words in a deeper context that have to do with our argument. As a writer, I think that many of any arguments I make are incomplete. With the quotation journal, you’re supposed to look closer at words while broadening your scope on words so that our analysis is more interesting and can connect to our thesis in an intriguing way. This is how I have expanded as a writer. Before, I would rarely mention anything interesting in my analysis.
Even though I knew what my story was and how I felt about the situation, I could not come up with a way to properly structure the narrative. To accomplish my personal narrative paper, I started to just scribble down all my ideas and then started to weed out the ones that I could live without. It turned into an outline that took me from start to finish on this assignment. After I had an outline I still did not know where everything should go, in my first draft I structured it more like an argumentative essay. The best advice for that was to not have an introduction paragraph, but that advice was a little too vague.
Another part of this disappointment was the sheer fragility of the arguments made. Numerous times, I did not relate my arguement back to the thesis which laft it in the dust. I received some wonderful footnotes from you Mrs. Immediato, including: “how does this relate to Romeo and Juliet”, and “Good, but how does this relate to your argument”. The second time around re-writing and editing, i noticed much more that you could have been picky about, thanks for not crushing my self-esteem. My first body paragraph started with a 1st grade level transition.
Diction varies between text as a children’s novel will have less advanced word choice than an academic paper. In Bill Bryson’s “How You Became You”, the diction plays a major role in advancing the purpose. The usage of words in this essay is very important as the author need to find a fine balance between alienating the audience through complex words and phrases and completely losing all credibility by sounding too lax and ignorant. Bryson skillfully maneuvers through both extremes and is able to entertain the audience while sounding knowledgable. Once again, we can look to the beginning of the essay for an example of Bryson’s diction.
During my first read through The Stranger, I paid little attention to how the novel was written, focusing more on content and plotline. I mainly noticed that the sentence structure employed was very limited, the majority of the sentences were short, and the figurative language was restricted. The interactive oral on translational effects introduced me to the importance of the syntax and diction used and its significance with respect to Meursault’s character. In the discussion, we examined the first line of the novel of Ward’s version, which is “Maman died today” (Camus 3). The diction is significant because the phrasing allows for a smooth reading which is consistent with Meursault’s simple personality and oblivious nature.
Although the poem see pretty easy to read it wasn 't as easy to figure out what Mr. frost was expressing when writting The Road Not Taken. Even famous English writers could not figure out what Mr. Frost meant about his poem. Many say that, perhaps the poem is to be diverse, to fit in those who lives seems to inspire. But the we have a group that
