What are some ways you could improve the following thesis statement of a persuasive essay? "Many schools enforce a dress code."
While this statement does tell the reader that the paper is about school dress code, it does not state what stance the paper is going to take whether it is for or against a dress code. It also does not give specific details about what kind of schools or what specifically in the dress code the paper is going to discuss.
In Juliet's iconic speech the line "Romeo, Romeo wherefore art thou Romeo?" What is she asking?
Wherefore means why, not where. In this scene, Juliet is lamenting and questing WHY Romeo is Romeo, a Montague. If he belonged to some other family there would not be a problem for their relationship.
In Edgar Allen Poe's short story "The Fall of the House of Usher" how does Poe use figurative language to develop the symbolism of the House of Usher?
In Edgar Allen Poe's story "The Fall of the House of Usher" Poe uses intensely vivid imagery depicting the morbidly dark house do illustrate the mental decline of its owner, Roderick Usher. As the narrator approaches the house he repeatedly comments on the atmosphere of the environment and the house: "with the first glimpse of the building, a sense of insufferable gloom pervaded my spirit." These descriptions are amplified and repeated. When the character Roderick Usher is described, he matches the descriptions of the house to such a degree that is becomes clear that the House's decline and Usher's are intertwined. When Usher ultimately succumbs to his maladies and dies, the house likewise crumbles: "the entire orb of the satellite burst at once upon my sight — my brain reeled as I saw the mighty walls rushing asunder — there was a long tumultuous shouting sound like the voice of a thousand waters — and the deep and dank tarn at my feet closed sullenly and silently over the fragments of the “House of Usher."" The ending lines highlight the unity of the man and the house as both of them meet their end, and both sink into the waters of the tarn.
