David Wallace's Essay 'Consider The Lobster'

186 Words1 Page
I thought David Wallace did a good job writing "Consider the Lobster". It was an effective essay. Before jumping to the Lobsters, he started his essay by introducing g a well-marketed Maine Lobsters Festival (MLF) which is held every late July. I like how he describe what he saw at the Festival, give g his readers a sense of what to visualize. I find if interesting that in the 1800s, lobsters was a low-class food eaten by the poor and also was a punishment for prisoners. Now, Lobsters are fancy and expensive. David tells his readers that there are several ways to cook a lobster. After, he informed us that the lobsters are alive before being boiled and also doesn't feel pain. David uses sensory details when describing the boiling of a lobster.
