  • Middle Passage And The Brutality Of Enslavement
    503 words
    In the three packets we read Zinn, Mannix and Cowely, Tak kaki they all refer to the Middle Passage and the brutality of enslavement. Specifically my interests were how the slaves white and black were treated. The women were treated with no respect at all. They were beaten and raped for no legitimate reason by their masters.

  • Person Like Mrs Preston

    Attaining Beauty in an Ugly Life The passage I chose to explicate is from An zia Yezierska's, The Lost Beautiful ness.

This is a good passage for many reasons, one of these is that it is a part of the story that has been built up and anticipated by all. Another is the vivid imagery used by Homer. There is one more reason, this being the tone of the passage. The tone of this passage is very important to it and adds very m...
  • Angelou And Fisher's Styles
    328 words
    When reading two passages, one by M.F.K. Fisher on the French port of Marseilles and the other by Maya Angelou on the small town of Stamps, I noticed that the passages had some similarities but where entirely different in their effect and the handling of language resources. While Angelou and Fisher organized and constructed their passages similarly, the persona and rhetoric of the authors are opposite. Angelou and Fisher's styles differ greatly, however, they both used very similar plot structur...
