Question:

How do I integrate quotes naturally into my essay as supporting evidence to my thesis without it reading as forced or awkward?

Inactive

Answer:

One way is to use dialogue tags: "In 'A Tale of Two Cities,' while awaiting execution, Sydney Carton expresses his last thoughts, 'It is a far, far better thing that I do, than I have ever done; it is a far, far better rest I go to than I have ever known (Dickens, 'A Tale of Two Cities').'" If it is a longer quote, it might be treated as its own paragraph, making the point and introducing the speaker in the previous paragraph before indenting and then adding the actual quotation.

Question:

How do I identify the main themes in "Beloved" by Toni Morrison?

Answer:

There are multiple themes present in "Beloved," all of which become apparent after reading through. Themes are most recognizable through what features are given the most descriptive emphasis through the text. Sometimes they are signified by patterns of events or details throughout the narrative. For example: slavery is "Beloved's" most prominent theme. This identifiable via characters' backstories. This very clearly affects their actions and dialogue.

Question:

What is the difference between homonyms, synonyms, and homophones?

Inactive

Answer:

Homonyms are different words spelled the same but have different meanings. Tie is a homonym because it is a verb--to tie shoes--or noun--tie between teams in competition. Homophones are pronounced the same but vary in spelling and meaning. Sunday refers to the first day of the week while a sundae is an elaborate dessert dish. Finally, synonyms are words that have no relation beyond definition. Look and view mean the same thing: to see.
