Correct punctuation is the focus of the book Eats, Shoots, Leaves by Lynne Truss, a self-labeled "zero tolerance approach to punctuation" (Truss). Grammarian, Lynne Truss, attempts to interest the everyday reader in punctuation by using comical situations and correcting popular signs and slogans. Her "inner stickler", however, makes the book come across as pretentious and aggravating to the non-sticklers of the world. Truss uses inappropriate examples such as sticklers getting "very worked up after 9/11 not because of Osama bin-Laden but because people on the radio kept saying 'enormity' when they meant 'magnitude'," since sticklers "really hate that" (Truss 5). The breakdown of the most popular forms of punctuation are useful, but made barely readable due to the author's sense of humor and pretentiousness regarding the subject.
Talent can be ruined by forcing someone to conform to the stereotypes of a job, thereby putting a metaphorical hat on them. The hat symbolizes the role a job plays in society and how a person of that occupation is supposed to act. By expecting someone to conform to the standards set by the hat, expectations and boundaries are created that can possibly limit someone’s potential. As an experienced writer, Annie Dillard has given first-hand advice on how to discard the metaphorical hat in her essay Push It. Throughout her essay, Dillard informs her readers that the hardships they encounter may seem like Goliath before David, but that persistence is better than perfection.
Another suggestion I have is to vary your wording. At times the wording of your essay makes it tricky to understand the point you are trying to make.

The abrupt change in your writing style makes the end of the paragraph seem slightly
Various times throughout the essay the author is keen on giving ground to the opposing argument without letting it nullify his own or without tearing down the opposition; after stating the opposition’s side, the author then give a reason as to why his argument is superior. From the beginning of the essay, the author already come across as straightforward using (insert quote example) ——. However, despite seeming frank, the author very quickly picks up strong and engaging language on the subject. This choice of diction indicates the author is speaking to other scholars of a similar degree level who either agree or disagree with him, but based off of the tone, the essay specifically addresses scholars who had studied the subject prior and disagreed with the author’s current viewpoints. The author continually and effectively cites opposing arguments to exemplify his own, giving the opposition ground, then coming in with his own studies to thwart the disagreeing
Meals in literature often represent something bigger, bringing communities together in a form of communion. However, this is not the case; in The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver, the meals are ironic they help to show discord and strife among the characters of the book. She uses meals to foreshadow future events, reveal the flaws of the characters, and as the book progresses, allows for the reader to see character development. In novel, Kingsolver twists the normal connotation of a meal and makes it ironic in order to demonstrate the discord and strife that is commonplace throughout the book that shows the lack of community between the Prices and those they interact with for most of the book.
For instance, words, for example, "chains", "death", and "cruel" build up a sharp and now and again grave tone that helps the gathering of people relate to her bring about.

Irony can be seen throughout the story in the words and phrases of the character. The irony can create a disturbing, yet slightly humorous scene with the audience not knowing what’s coming for the characters. In the short story, The Cask Of Amontillado, irony can be seen through the conversations of the two characters, Montresor and Fortunato. Although, Montresor is the character with most literary devices. Verbal irony can be seen in the story when Montresor told the “attendees” to stay in the house while he was gone.
If this poem is read literally, it is incredibly repulsive, as it talks about eating tongues and hearts in a cannibalistic nature. When read figuratively, however, the poem is seemingly understandable and somewhat humorous. The speaker uses a tongue and a heart to characterize her sister’s and brother’s issues with the speaker. The “small bones and gristle” (3) of the tongue indicate a sharp speaker, capable of conceiving sarcastic retorts. This description sounds harsh, and causes the reader to feel uneasy.
If all the sentences’ structures are the same, the audience will get bored and tuned out. Suspension is similar to the diea of suspension in a movie. It helps a speaker gain the audience attention because the audience will want to figure out the surprise ending. 3.
