Question:

What is the difference between an expository essay and a descriptive essay?

Inactive
Mary W.
Answer:

An expository essay outlines the main points of a topic using facts and logic. The writer does not employ any fanciful language. The topic should be discussed thoroughly to ensure the readers come away with a reasonably complete understanding of the topic. A descriptive essay frequently focuses on the writer's personal experience and uses vivid language to convey the writer's sensory experience to the reader. This type of essay is more creative than an expository essay but is still non-fiction.

What is the theme of Chaucer's "The House of Fame"?

Answer:

"The House of Fame" (c. 1374-1385) deals primarily with the fickleness of fame and infamy and the untrustworthiness of written accounts of history. Chaucer depicts the goddess Fame meting out fame and infamy regardless of the recipients' desire or merit. His fictional self spends the latter part of the poem among a crowd spreading rumors, both true and false.

Question:

What is the difference between a direct object and an indirect object in a sentence?

Answer:

The direct object is the person or thing receiving the action of the verb, while the indirect object is the person or thing affected by the action of the verb. For example, let's look at the sentence "Bob gave Alice the book." The direct object is "book" because Bob gave the book. The indirect object is "Alice" because the book was given to Alice.
