Question:

Where is the most effective place to insert one's thesis statement in an argumentative essay?

Kelly-jayne M.
Answer:

The most effective place to insert one's thesis statement is at the very end of the introductory paragraph. The reader will be able to anticipate accurately what the paper is trying to argue and how it will argue it when the thesis statement is placed correctly.

Question:

Read the following excerpt from Alan Ginsberg's "Howl Part 1" and answer the following question. "I saw the best minds of my generation destroyed by madness, starving hysterical naked, dragging themselves through the negro streets at dawn looking for an angry fix, angelheaded hipsters burning for the ancient heavenly connection to the starry dynamo in the machinery of night, who poverty and tatters and hollow-eyed and high sat up smoking in the supernatural darkness of cold-water flats floating across the tops of cities contemplating jazz, who bared their brains to Heaven under the El and saw Mohammedan angels staggering on tenement roofs illuminated," What effect does Ginsberg's choice of diction have on the overall impression of the excerpt?

Kelly-jayne M.
Answer:

Ginsberg's diction is strong and biting. He uses phrases like "angry fix," "starving hysterical naked" and "poverty and tatters." Each word that he chose is strong in its connotations towards chaos and unrest. The words chosen invite the reader to stumble along with his characters, to experience the depth of their suffering with them. His word choice leaves the reader with the distinct impression that something is very, very wrong for the characters that Ginsberg is describing in this scene.
