T Tone begins with a neutral style, and how moths seem to be “content’ with their lives. She uses neutral words like, benevolent, as it is nothing out of the ordinary. Woolf then changes tone to a more upbringing tone, using various phrases diction such as soaring and vociferation, while still talking about the moth. Woolf then once again changes her tone, bringing an angry voice to the story. Parts including but not limited to “failure and awkwardness were the approach of death” where Woolf starts to show her full purpose, and that anything good can turn bad in no time at all. “Once More to the Lake” by E.B White S “Once More to the Lake” is written as a personal narrative while White takes his son to the lake he grew up with. O The occasion for this piece of writing is that of White, the father, taking his son to an old lake house where White had lived his younger years. Through the trip, White completed various activities and actions with his son that he himself had done with his own father. A The audience White prompted this for is“American families” that kept their own traditions. He compared himself to newcomers completing the tourist attractions at the lake, and that since he knew the in's and outs of the area, it made it more enjoyable for everyone. Specifically his son and himself.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
