Analyze how Ambrose Bierce uses rhetorical strategies--particularly elements of satire--to convey his worldview in The Devil's Dictionary.
In response to the prompt you wrote some bold, insightful assertions (also called claims and thesis statements). Then, you dug up supporting evidence to support your assertion. Then, you presented your assertions and supported them with evidence in a class discussion. You built on each other's ideas by expanding and refining each other's assertions and by presenting new evidence and new explanations of the evidence. Well done.
Now, in the comment box below present any of the analytical insights and support that you did not have an opportunity to share during class. You can present your own work. You can respond to what other people said in class or to what other people have written on the blog. Show that you have thought deeply about Bierce's satirical argument and the way he conveys that argument.
I'm enjoying your insights about the text as a whole and your explanations of particular passages. Keep digging and keep thinking.
