The central idea was freedom. In her story, Philis convey the struggle that American people has to acchieve it and how she supported George’s Washington effort to fight and obtain it. She simply talks about him being a symbol of a hero and that she’s sure he was going to win the war. The tone of the letter seems to be earnest and heartwarming

Which of the following is an accurate definition of diction?

[ad_1]

Kamala Markandaya  was a pseudonym used by Kamala Purnaiya Taylor who was born on 01 January 1924 and died on 16 May 2004. She was an Indian novelist and journalist. A native of Mysore, India, Markandaya was a graduate of Madras University, and afterwards published several short stories in Indian newspapers. After India declared its independence, Markandaya moved to Britain, however, she still considered herself an Indian expatriate long afterwards.

Known for writing about culture between Indian urban and rural societies, Markandaya’s first published novel, Nectar in a Sieve, was a bestseller and cited as an American Library Association Notable Book in 1955.

The book is set in India during a period of intense urban development and is the chronicle of the marriage between Rukmani, youngest daughter of a village headman, and Nathan, a tenant farmer. The story is told in the first person by Rukmani, beginning from her arranged marriage to Nathan at the age of 12 to his death many years later.

Food is a critical aspect in the development of the story, Rukmani and Nathan struggle to feed their children and to pay the rent on the land that gives them life. Although difficulties continue to worsen, they quietly resign themselves to ever-increasing sufferings: flood, famine, even death, yet they stick to their hopes for a better future.

One definition of the word season as it is used in Nectar in a Sieve is that:

it is a period of the year associated with something in particular that happens every year

In those days he really didn’t know what he was talking about; that is to say, he was a young jailkid all hung-up on the wonderful possibilities of becoming a real intellectual, and he liked to talk in the tone and using the words, but in a jumbled way, that he had heard from “real intellectuals.” — On the Road, Jack Kerouac Which type of diction best characterizes Kerouac’s style in this passage?

Here are a few pointers; hope this is useful)

Ovation-by definition- is show of appreciation from an audience, for a person’s accomplishments or flaw.

“Everyone deserves a standing ovation because we all overcometh the world.”

A person’s accomplishment could be how they made a positive change in this world, strong leadership- that makes them a effective leader or simply helping others. A person’s flaw- mistakes in life, sin or even guilt should also be considered an appreciation- an ovation for representing mankind’s flaw and that humanity makes mistakes, fulfilling at least one deadly sin such as greed, lust, selfishness etc.

Thus, regardless of a person’s achievement or flaw- a person deserves an applause for, not the least, living in this society and this world that we are all living together and dying together.

That was just the introduction.. the best part is yet to come.. now it’s your turn!!

Here are other pointers to talk about in your essay:

Shakespeare’s famous line “All the World’s a stage. That agrees with your line: “Everybody deserves a standing ovation…”

Shakespeare explains that men and women are like players: they live, and die, some being celebrated and some forever living in solitude till their death. Shakespeare states the world is a “stage” which symbolizes that mankind is in its peak. The world is changing everyday: little by little and humanity is falling behind.
Due to our world turning into machinery: factories, an automotive future: where humans only job to live (entrance) and to die (exit) the famous humans remembered and the flawed not recalled.

This is according to Shakespeare’s imagery.

I don’t know what grade your in, but I think simplifying Shakespeare’s word of mouth in your essay would be handy and useful as it has strong references of your quote, and agrees strongly in your essay.

Hope this helps 🙂
