Repetition - Weebly

Repetition Consider: Brother, continue to listen. You say that you are sent to instruct us how to worship the Great Spirit agreeably to his mind; and, if we do not take hold of the religion which you white people teach, we shall be unhappy hereafter. You say that you are right and we are lost. How do we know this to be true? - Chief Red Jacket, Chief Red Jacket Rejects a Change of Religion Discuss: 1) The words you say are repeated several times in the sentence. What is the repetitions function? 2) The question at the end of the passage is a rhetorical question. What attitude toward the audience is expressed by

the use of a rhetorical question? Repetition Consider: Im clean, Carlito, Im not using. My voice dropped to a whisper, Im not using. And oh, God, I found my mind, thinking, Wonder what it would be like again? Wonder what it would be like again? Wonder what it would be like again? Wonder. Piri Thomas, Down These Mean Streets Discuss: Thomas repeats the question Wonder what it would be like again?

Three times in the passage. What effect does this repetition have on the impact of the passage? At the end of the passage, Thomas uses ellipses to indicate an omission of words required for complete syntactical construction but unnecessary for understanding. What words are missing? What impact does this omission have on the passage? Repetition Choose: Write a well-developed paragraph on either Chief Red Jackets or Piri Thomas use of repetition. Consider how repetition affects the purpose and main idea being conveyed. Repetition Consider: He had been prepared to lie, to bluster, to remain sullenly

unresponsive; but, reassured by the good-humored intelligence of the Controllers face, he decided to tell the truth, straightforwardly. Aldous Huxley, Brave New World Discuss: 1) What effect does the repetition of infinitives (to lie, to bluster, to remain) in the first clause have on the meaning of the sentence? How do these infinitives prepare you for the infinitive phrase (to tell the truth) in the second clause? 2) What is the function of the semicolon in Huxleys sentence? Write

Write a well-developed paragraph on Huxleys use of repetition. Consider how repetition affects the purpose and main idea being conveyed. Do a quick edit on the paragraph in front of you. Did they correctly integrate their quotes. Is authors purpose stated? Is the repetition correctly analyzed? What else could they have explained better in their commentary? Repetition Consider:

When the moment is ripe, only the fanatic can hatch a genuine mass movement. Without him the disaffection engendered by militant men of words remains undirected and can vent itself only in pointless and easily suppressed disorders. Without him the initiated reforms, even when drastic, leave the old way of life unchanged, and any change in government usually amounts to no more than a transfer of power from one set of men of action to another. Without him there can perhaps be no new beginning. - Eric Hoffer, The Fanatics Discuss: 1) This passage uses the phrase without him three times. What effect does this have on the overall impact of the passage? 2) How does the length of the last sentence affect the meaning of the passage?

Write Write a well-developed paragraph on Hoffers use of repetition. Consider how repetition affects the purpose and main idea being conveyed. Do a quick edit on the paragraph in front of you. Did they correctly integrate their quotes. Is authors purpose stated? Is the repetition correctly analyzed? What else could they have explained better in their commentary?
