Question:

I have no idea how to write a thesis statement; how do I do that?

Inactive
Clare T.
Answer:

Depending on what your paper is about, writing a thesis statement helps create clarity and purpose to your work. If I asked you what you think about the subject, and you said, "I think that," we can take whatever you said afterwards and work with it! It can be a bit nerve-racking to claim something, but writing that thesis is the basis your paper needs.

Question:

What is the difference between Elizabethan and Petrarchan sonnets?

Inactive

Answer:

Technically, the Elizabethan sonnet came from the Petrarchan sonnet, but it does have certain differences, hence the distinction in name. Petrarchan sonnets contain an octave (8 lines) and a sestet (6 lines) following that. These poems usually depict melodramatic scenes and begin on the premise of unrequited love. Elizabethan sonnets contain three quatrains (four lines each) and a couplet (2 lines). In many ways, Elizabethan sonnets tend to make fun of Petrarchan sonnets with melodramatic references, but they still retain the romantic nature.

Question:

When do I use a semicolon in a sentence?

Inactive
Clare T.
Answer:

You can use a semicolon when separating two independent clauses (each containing a subject and a verb). For example: Cats are meddlesome creatures; they like to knock vases on the ground. In this case, "cats" is the subject and "are" is the verb in the first part; "they" is the subject and "like" is the verb in the second part.
