Question:

When creating an argument, why is important for the author to support their thesis statement with concrete evidence?

Answer:

When an author makes a claim with a thesis statement, it is important that they support their claim with concrete evidence to establish credibility as an author. While two sides exist to any argument, it is important that the writer stick to data and information that is factually based rather than opinion based. When an author inserts too much of their opinion into an argumentative text, it becomes difficult for the reader to give credibility to what is being said.

Question:

How might an author's background influence the theme of a piece of writing?

Answer:

The social background, time period, and location of an author can have a major impact on the theme of a piece of writing. For instance, writing that is done by a woman in America during the late 1800s would have vast difference in theme compared to an African-American male of the same time period. However, both groups being minorities of the times, would also have overlapping themes. The struggles and trials each group has gone through would greatly affect their writing, thus making background quite influential.

Question:

How would an author use elements of poetry, such as metaphor and rhyme, to convey the theme of their poem?

Answer:

An author may use elements of poetry, such as metaphor and rhyme, to help the reader understand the central message of their theme. They may use metaphor to draw a comparison that is easy to understand while still maintaining the depth and complexity of their theme, and rhyme to create a steady pulse in the poetry to reinforce understanding of what is being said by the speaker.
