My First Construction Of Writing

- Writing academic papers, personal letters, journals or simple notes take a certain amount of thought, syntax and skill. Writing is taught when we are young, often during our first years at school. We start with gaining skills such as the formation of letters, their meanings, and the proper use of syntax, sentences and paragraphs. Instructors teach us the formulas for properly constructing a well-written sentence, paragraph and eventually a paper. These skills amass over time and are put to use in an array of circumstances throughout our lives, but do we realize exactly where, how and who taught us to write....   [tags: Writing, Paper, Literature, Learning]

Vocabulary in Language Learning

- The Rape of Proserpina and Eve's Fall in Milton's Paradise Lost "She pluck'd, she eat" (PL IX.781). With these four monosyllables, Milton succinctly announces the Fall of Eve in Paradise Lost. Eve's Fall, however, is far more complex than a simple act of eating, for her disobedience represents a much greater loss of chastity. Indeed, Milton implies that the Fall is a violation not only of God's sole commandment but also of Eve herself, for Milton implicitly equates Dis's ravishment of Proserpina with Satan's seduction of Eve....   [tags: Paradise Lost Essays]
