Compare and contrast Text A and Text B
Text A- Satirical Elegy on the death of a late famous general
Text B- An obituary of William Davidson

Both texts are similar, in the fact that they both are reminiscence on a person’s life after their death. Many differences, however, can be seen throughout the poem written by Jonathan Swift and the Obituary. The opening of both Texts is contradictory as Text A opens with a series of exclamations, ‘His Grace! Impossible! What, dead!, ’which gives an impression of surprise at the death but not a sense of grief is aroused. On the other hand, Text B embarks with a compliment ‘was in his element at the heart of the action’; both openings give a clear implication of the withdrawal of the rest of the text. The structure of both are also at a contrast, Text A is an elegy so Is a farewell to the dead but the fact that Swift writes a satire elegy therefore removes the traditional aspect of an elegy. Text B is an Obituary, but although also a farewell to the dead, it is read at a remembrance or a funeral so is written with aspiration to honour William Davidson and not undermine him in the way that Text A is. Text A is written with a sarcastic and mocking tone, through the poem it is highlighted that the general has earned the disrespected he has received through the mention also of his failures with use of the parallelism of ‘Nor widows’ sigh, nor orphans’ tears’ which gives the impression that no grief is present throughout any of the people he ruled and stresses the expected sympathy lacking in his funeral but also brings across the suffering in which he cause by sending men to war. Written from point of view of the poet/narrator enhances the individual criticism that will be included whereas Text B writes chronologically mentioning Davidsons successes and achievements in life, examples consist of…...

To Text or Not to Text

...To text or not to text Text messaging has become a convenient way to communicate or maybe an obsession. Texting as is it is commonly referred to today, allows individuals to literally to express their thoughts, information, and maintain relationships with the tips of their fingers. The use of the text message has redefined the way in which our society communicates with each other. Would you believe that 11% of people have sent a text message during sex! Wow! This trend seems to have become an addiction. Text messages are usually read within 5 minutes of being received and responded to instantly. Though this function has many benefits, it has created several negative problems as well. The cost to ones safety as well as the general public has made texting a highly debated subject. I prefer to just pick up the phone and make a call. It’s quick, it’s easy and if you don’t get an answer, you just leave a message or call back later. Thought of as a convenient way of communication, texting with technology advances faster than etiquette has contributed to the erosion of our society. The power of text messaging is one that has redefined how the world communicates and those that choose to use it have a responsibility to use it correctly. Text messaging allows for individuals to maintain person relationships for those that do not have the ability to see one another on a regular basis. As a study showed, the average teenager uses the text message for about 54% of their interactions......

Text in Time

...Texts are products of time Focusing of 2 texts from different eras, discuss how text reflect values of their context. Medieval literature and the renaissance literature was a period of time where religion and values were important, good and evil was widely distinct and the political structure was highly valued depending on the individual’s background. These factors had huge influence on how and why literature was raised. Middle ages was a more a time of religious fears and, scientific and cultural progress was considered evil which made stories more conservative, harsh and heroic. One of the famous medieval text includes Thomas Malory and the Morte D’Arther. The text is a fusion of historical and pre-Christian magical elements. On the other hand, the renaissance was quiet different to medieval period, it was the rebirth of individualism, humanism and free thinking. Renaissance writing, by contrast showed interest in writing, arts and culture. One of the key philosophical elements of the renaissance was the rise of humanism and precursor to the age of enlightenment. Renaissance literature and arts became more invested in the hands of rich and powerful. One of the famous renaissance text includes a Petrarchan sonnet called the Holy Sonnet 10 by John Donne. The sonnet has a lot of religious and biblical context of god, death and eternal life. It highlights the insignificance of death that it should not be feared, it reveals human dignity and happiness and individual freedom.......

Text a and Text B English

...The two texts address their audiences very differently in the beginning. Sue, in text A doesn’t seem to want to ask questions outright, so begins with a phatic utterance “how yer doin Kat” to establish a conversation before launching in. This demonstrates her feelings of intimacy, probably because she is familiar with the audience, as seen by this fact that she wants to keep the informality. It also exemplifies the context as this is spontaneous speech and she is not certain which way the conversation will go until it happens. In contrast, text B launches in immediately with the point and purpose with “Now I am fortunate” which demonstrates that he has attitude that precision and direct approaches are necessary, and an attitude he wanted to convey in order to achieve his implied purpose of gaining support. This is also done due to the context as people have shown up to hear this speech and the purpose is very clear and he knows what the audience want to hear. In Text B, the personal pronoun “we” is used to show the feelings are conveyed by the whole audience, which adds a personal touch and creates a sense of belonging and intimacy with a large audience, utilising the fact that we all have a human desire to belong. In Text A, Kat uses the personal pronoun “you” when “one” would be more correct, conveying the information in an informal way. This is typical of spontaneous speech as she has less time to think about what she is saying and she is speaking to a close and familiar......

The Text

...The text under stylistic analysis is written by Joyce Carry. It deals with the author’s emotions and feelings towards Clare, Tutin’s wife, who lost her husband. This text is about one businessman Tutin who tell in love with his secretary and wanted a divorce. After having a conversation with his husband, Clare was resigned after all. She thought it would be stupid to try to hold him against his will and he’d only hate her. Then we meet an Old Mrs. Beer who was the widow of a canon. This comparison the author used to show us that the old lady became a widow long ago and probably used to live alone. Then the author describes her appearance and her character . She was a short, stout woman with a red face and a heavy jaw — a pugnacious and indomitable face. And having known this description we can say it was a bossy person who liked to give orders to other people. The author compare her face with the faces in boxing booths, who have been in the ring all their lives and lost all their fight but still follow the game, in order to show that she already «lost her fight», but anyway like giving arbitrary commands . And when she got to know about this arrangement she came without any warning and broke into Tutin’s office, with an umbrella in hand as if about to beat him. This comparison author used to underline she had very serious intentions as to his son-in-low. «This was in the presence of the secretary who was taking a dictation — not Phyllis was no longer a secretary».

...heart a dilettante, and thinking over a pleasure to come often gave him a subtler satisfaction than its realisation. This was especially the case when the pleasure was a delicate one, as his pleasures mostly were; and on this occasion the moment he looked forward to was so rare and exquisite in quality that--well, if he had timed his arrival in accord with the prima donna's stage-manager he could not have entered the Academy at a more significant moment than just as she was singing: "He loves me--he loves me not--HE LOVES ME!--" and sprinkling the falling daisy petals with notes as clear as dew. She sang, of course, "M'ama!" and not "he loves me," since an unalterable and unquestioned law of the musical world required that the German text of French operas sung by Swedish artists should be translated into Italian for the clearer understanding of English- speaking audiences. This seemed as natural to Newland Archer as all the other conventions on which his life was moulded: such as the duty of using two silver- backed brushes with his monogram in blue enamel to part his hair, and of never appearing in society without a flower (preferably a gardenia) in his buttonhole. "M'ama . . . non m'ama . . . " the prima donna sang, and "M'ama!", with a final burst of love triumphant, as she pressed the dishevelled daisy to her lips and lifted her large eyes to the sophisticated countenance of the little brown Faust-Capoul, who was vainly trying, in a tight purple velvet......

Islam Text

...Running head: ISLAM’S SACRED TEXT Islam’s Sacred Text Name [Professor] [University] [Course Title] There are three sacred texts in the Islamic religion these are the Quran, The Sunna, and the Sufi. The Quran is the holy book of the Muslims. It literally means the recitation (Zwemer 2002). It is the most holy text of the religion and central to the faith. It is also the best-known sacred text of Islam. The Muslims claimed that Allah handed down the words of the Quran to Mohammed through an angel named Jibril (Zwemer 2002). It was composed for a period of approximately 20 years sometime in 610 CE to 630 CE. Quran literally means recitation. The Muslims considered this text as a miracle and a proof of Mohammed’s prophethood. The Muslim believed that the Quran is the final authority when it comes to matters of faith and doctrine. It is considered divine and sacred. However, although the Quran is the most holy and sacred text of the Islamic religion it is not the sole source of inspired message and tradition among the Muslim. The Muslim as of equal importance to the faith also views the Sunna. Sunna means a clear path. The Muslim considered the Sunna as the record of what the prophet had said, done, condoned or condemned (Zwemer 2002). In other words, the Sunna is the complete biography of the prophet. Here, it discussed the Mohammed’s customs, practices teachings and sayings. The Sunna give the......

...my night! As I pulled up to the party it was far bigger then I had imagined. Suddenly a dark shadow rushed towards the street, it was her! I couldn’t mistake those legs! I quickly sprayed myself with my dad’s cologne (from the glove box) and opened the door. Once again I was reminded of being in the ‘friends zone’ when I see her chocking on some muscle bound guy’s tongue on the bonnet of my car. My excitement, confidence and as well as a few other things quickly shrunk to nothing. I began to curse myself for being so stupid. After what seemed like an hour she opened the door and collapsed on the seat, the instant smell of booze and smoke filled my lungs. Trying to discipline myself not to acknowledge her existence, I was listening to her text on her phone and continually question what was wrong with me. Then out of nowhere she muttered words that I had only ever heard in my dreams. I felt sure I was only imagining then she repeated them again and I slammed on the brakes and turned off the car. I finally found my confidence - my frustration was about to unleash on this perfect girl but as I turned to acknowledge what she was saying........WOW!!! In the time of my deep thinking and refusing to acknowledge her, she had removed all her clothing other than her tight panties. She uttered the words of my dreams again and that’s when I made the biggest mistake of my life!! Yes I did say that about 9 months from today was when my life turned around, now in 2 weeks will be 18 and a......
