Ethics are no more a part of poetry than they are of painting.Poetry is the expression of the experience of poetry.
The best aphorisms are not the most true but the most undecidable, those worth endlessly testing.
In , Heidi Julavits writes of herself and her husband: “We love to take a conviction we might, for a moment, entertain, and then turn it on its head and make a joke about it. Our jokes are interrogations that help us figure out what we care about, and where our faith, at the moment, lies.” Jokes as essays. Formally, it’s a platform ideally suited to the aphorism; in fact aphorisms should be quite a bit less than 140 characters.

“RT ≠ endorsement,” as many Twitter bios attest, but nor does a favorite.
Describe the many ways in which this particular variable affects the other, and explain why it does so.
Classification – This developmental pattern is used to categorize multiple subjects into separate or distinct groups by certain criteria.Compare and Contrast – With this developmental pattern, the writer will examine both the similarities and the differences between two or more distinct subjects.The choice of organizational pattern really depends upon the length of the essay.Too often students begin writing expository essays without first having learned about their subject.If the teacher requires you to write the essay with knowledge from the top of your head, then obviously you will not have to perform research. Paragraph and its essentials Topic Sentence: A paragraph has a main idea which is expressed in a topic sentence.(I have stopped reading my Goodreads reviews.)
