Question:

What are the characteristics of a strong thesis statement?

Inactive
Nick H.
Answer:

There are three characteristics to a strong thesis statement. First, it is arguable--the writer should be able to give evidence for and against the thesis. Second, it is concise--the statement itself should be as short as possible while conveying the necessary information. Third, it is narrow--the scope of the thesis should fit the length of the essay being written.

Answer:

A metaphor is a comparison that describes a person, place, or thing by calling it a different person, place or thing. A simile is a comparison that describes a person, place, or thing using "like" or "as." An example of a metaphor is Shakespeare's statement in Sonnet 116 that love "is a star to every wandering bark." An example of a simile is Robert Burn's statement "My love is like a red, red rose."
