Sentences: Adding Details

Details make your writing clearer and more interesting. Descriptive adjectives and adverbs are useful details. You can also use phrases and clauses that give more information about your topic. Compare the example sentences to get an idea of the difference a few details can make.

EXAMPLE SENTENCES

• Maria has a dog.

• My friend Maria has a golden retriever whose fur is the same beautiful color as her own hair.

A. Try your hand at adding details to make these boring sentences more interesting.

1. Dan got a haircut today.

Using Vivid Nouns

Nouns are words that name persons, places, things, or events. Good writers choose nouns that are specific rather than general. The word dog, for example, does not give the reader an exact mental picture. A specific noun such as whippet, greyhound,

Dalmatian, or cocker spaniel would create a much more precise image.

A. Rewrite each sentence, replacing the underlined word with a more specific noun that creates a clearer picture.

1. Please pass the vegetables.

__________________________________________________________________________

2. We went to a restaurant for dinner on Saturday.

3. After dinner, we split a dessert.

Paratexts and the Rhetorical Factor in Literature

Paratexts and the Rhetorical Factor in Literature

Joachim Knape

As a rhetorician, I did not take Thomas Austenfeld’s invitation to compare Sebastian Brant's Narrenschiff (1494) and Katherine Anne Porter’s Ship of Fools (1962) for granted. When working within a strictly defined theoretical framework of rhetoric, it is not obvious that rhetorical analysis is appropriate for the fields of art and literature. If it is, then such an analysis must deal with a series of specific theoretical problems and challenges. In what follows, I will raise a few fundamental questions:

And finally, a methodological problem:

My essay is an attempt to find initial answers to these questions. In this introduction I can only briefly touch on the problems listed above; I have written more extensively elsewhere.1 First, the general question about communication. Within the construct of modern aesthetics, it is not self-evident that literature is both an art and a communicative fact. Since the beginning of the so-called Art Period in the eighteenth century and the emergence of the l’art pour l’art ideology, an idea of the autonomy of artistic work has developed. This has culminated in the contemporary idea of performance: that the meaning and purpose of an artistic work only emerges in the moment of its performance. Artistic messages are thus a phenomenon of a situatively linked emergence.2 With reference to literature, this means that poets write only for themselves and then leave us their texts as mere stimuli for our own individual games. In this way, perhaps literature that has been fully detached from its author, like every other form of art, leads to an original experience of being.
