Looking back at my past papers, I decided to do revise my Textual Rhetorical Analysis. I came to this decision when I noticed how weak my introductory paragraph was. I then noticed that there were other areas that I could improve on within my Textual Rhetorical Analysis. The first thing I changed was my title. Although my title gave a nice introduction to what my essay was going to be about, I thought it needed to be more intriguing.
Entry #20 Dumas definitely has some weaknesses and strengths in this book. He made me feel many different emotions such as happiness, anger, sorrow and sympathy. One of the weaknesses in this book was the fact that he jumped around from subplot to subplot; at times, it was very confusing. Although he did jump around, the events were in great detail, and helped me better understand what was going on. I, personally, enjoyed this book and would recommend to anyone who was looking for a little adventurous novel, with a sprinkle of spunk.
J. Kelly Nestruck uses humour in his essay “The Importance of Email Punctuation” to prove his points more effectively. He keeps acknowledging the fact that it is very important where, and how to use punctuation and signs in the sentences. For instance, he starts the essay by mentioning, “Never before in my life had I considered a colon so carefully”. Since people don’t normally spend much time on punctuating he attempts to affirm the importance of it in a humours way. In addition, he refers to the use of exclamation point.
For the most part I enjoyed the novel as I began reading because I am intrigued by different cultures like to compare and contrast between each other. One of the things that I liked about the book, was that it was fairly fast paced and not as dull or slow as some of the other books that I have read throughout other classes. Just reading up to where we are I found the messages in the previous chapters to be quite moving especially the one where Hassan smashes the pomegranate on his head, symbolizing the second rape, in front of Amir. The “conflict” between Hassan and Amir, I feel makes the reader pick sides, which many of whom would be on the side of Hassan. Due to the fact that throughout the novel he doesn 't let go of the loyalty he has to his best friend, despite what Amir has done to him.
He copied the dictionary from page to page. Finally, he began to understand how to read and write, and felt free about expressing what he felt. Malcom X 's autobiography was interesting, how he felt about knowledge. His tone and attitude when he was frustrated when he couldn 't write even a letter was
The two essays I chose to revise were my rhetorical analysis and my position essay. I chose the rhetorical analysis for the polished revision and the position essay for the strategic revision. I chose both of these works because I thought they were two that could be most improved upon and would then be my best work from this course. I think my rhetorical analysis was the most enjoyable essay for me to write, and the one I put the most effort into, although it did have some flaws. Because of this, I didn’t make any major changes to it, just a few changes to make it more sharper and flow better.
It acts a clear shift in tone and makes the impact you’re going for even more meaningful. The form works well since some natural pauses fall right before a surprise, and making the lines too much longer would make it feel a little cheesy, I think. I’m not sure if the title is appropriate though because you don’t describe anyone skating, only two people in a chair. I think that the second half could be expanded to describe this relationship and the speaker’s feelings even more. Despite this, I really admire how honest and relatable all of your poems
Throughout this course, the assignments I have completed have assured that I have difficulties in writing. However, I have managed to learn and understand how to write a rhetorical analysis essay. In addition, I have learned the key elements of the genre science fiction and managed to read some interesting stories; such as, Understand and Dividing by Zero. Aside from this, I plan to show an image of stairs to symbolize the progression of my writing. I will utilize my notes and assignments to not only validate my struggles, but also to exhibit my improvement in writing.
Through my educational career, I’ve been a successful writer. I received high marks on my papers because I followed the rubrics and was eloquent. I loved complex sentences that strung my thoughts together, used adjectives to detail my stances and showcased research with commas and lists. My writing style was not conducive to public relations writing. This course required me to embrace the opposite of what I was used to and almost relearn how to write for public relations.
As the test tells, I am a person who likes challenges. However, finding a proper article for writing the rhetorical analysis was very difficult for I had to find an article which has enough rhetorical devices to be analyzed. As for the writing process, it’s much easier. I just needed to copy some sentences, point out the rhetorical devices and give my reasons. Therefore, writing the rhetorical analysis is a little easy and boring compared to writing other essays.
The piece "Jabberwocky" is considered to be one of the greatest nonsense poems that was written in English. At first I didn 't know what a nonsense poem was when I was doing my research about the poem. What a nonsense poem is that it uses rhythm and rhyme to get the readers attention. Some other authors/writers who wrote nonsense literature were Dr.Seuss, Woody Allen, John Lennon, and my favorite author besides Carroll, Sherl Silverstein. Carroll has many other pieces that are nonsense poems but I will be breaking apart "Jabberwocky" instead.
Whilst creating the prose, I practised my adjectives, adverbs, etc. to develop the complexity of my writing. After spending a considerable amount of time editing this piece, I received an A/A+ overall, which made me feel blissful. But notably, I noticed that I actually put in less effort to produce this response, which showed me that my writing was developing quite
