The Apparent Tyranny of Expository Writing - Expository writing is the genre of writing that is intended to blah blah blah, blah, blah blah. Unfortunately this is where the average reader of expository writing tunes out and ceases to listen, allowing his eyes to find a meandering course across the pages until finally he glances over the last paragraph, and with a sigh a relief he is finished—having gained no more knowledge than he would have wasting away on his video game console. The idea that ‘reading’ is synonymous with ‘work’ has engrained such a fear of the exposition of mere facts into students that as soon as they sense that that is what they are being given, their eyes cease to read, their mind begins to wander and their senses become keenly aware of their surroundings, the time, and how many more pages they are required to blankly stare at....   [tags: Language Arts ]

Its character is dually displayed as it manifests itself to be both a life taker and a life giver, a life force sustainer and a life force destroyer. As a life taker, water becomes the destructive force that obliterates the wicked people of Noah’s day, and punishes the people and land of Egypt during Pharaoh’s unyielding reign.
