    Techniques for Prose Analysis Assumptions of close-reading prose: 1. Writing style is itself an expression of philosophy; or, to put it another way, form contains ideas 2. The formal aspects of writing - diction, sentence structure etc. - may work against the literal sense of the writing - or enhance it. 3.

Product details Paperback: pagesCited by: 1. The book is about more than Classic Prose. It's about certain fundamental choices writers make, writing in ANY style, and ought to make consciously.

The book is also about much more than writing. It helps me to think about human nature, Cited by: How to Write a Passage Analysis of Prose Definition of Analysis: “A method by which a thing is separated into parts, and those parts are given rigorous, logical, detailed scrutiny, resulting in a consistent and relatively complete account of the elements of the thing and the principles of their organization.” (from A Handbook to Literature, 5th Size: KB.

Prose Analysis Methodology Most poems are short, and so it is analysis of prose style book to analyse a whole text. And when analysing poetry we noticed that we could get a long way by concentrating on foregrounded features: particularly deviation and parallelism.

A writer's style should be direct and personal, his imagery rich and earthy, and his words simple and vigorous. The greatest writers have the gift of brilliant brevity, are hard workers, diligent scholars and competent stylists.

To explain Hemingway's style adequately in a few paragraphs is impossible. Another function of prose is to mark the speech of lower-status characters. Members of the nobility, like Claudius, almost always speak in verse, but commoners like the gravedigger use prose. When Hamlet speaks in prose to Rosencrantz and Guildenstern—who are high-status enough to speak verse with the King—it suggests he is talking down to them.

Although for the most part the style of is as functional and unadorned as the world it describes, Orwell sometimes modifies his style to match Winston’s thoughts or emotional state. For example, when Winston writes in his diary, emotion often overtakes him and his writing changes from grammatically correct and precise to uncapitalized, unpunctuated, and with run-on sentences, mirroring his racing.

The Book Thief tells the story of Liesel Meminger, a young German girl coming of age in Nazi Germany. The novel focuses on the joys and sorrows of Liesel, her foster family, and the Jewish man they hide from the Nazis.

It's a diptych that splits English into the usual "Composition" and "Rhetoric," but written for the person who loves to break down beautiful styles/5.

The hardest part of this book is probably the word "Abnegation," but you'll get used to it. Exposure therapy and all that jazz. Tris mostly tells her story in plain-jane prose. For instance, using our patented "open the book at any point" technique, we find: Marcus.

In his typical nature in responding to and accepting their demand he unknowingly caused his own demise. While Berry was helping a boy in a wheelchair down the stairs, due to know fault of Berry’s own doing, the boy fell out of the chair onto the grass and the wheelchair onto the walk.

Historians of English prose style, especially in the 17th and 18th centuries, have distinguished between the vogue of the 'Ciceronian style' (named after the characteristic practice of the Roman writer Cicero), which is elaborately constructed, highly periodic, and typically builds to a climax, and the opposing vogue of the clipped, concise, pointed, and uniformly stressed sentences in the 'Attic or 'Senecan' styles Author: Richard Nordquist.

How does the running style differ from the periodic style. What do "high, middle, and low" prose style mean. How might one apply the classical terminology of rhetorical figures to prose analysis.
