I found your blog post this week to be highly critical and engaging. You did well focussing on the structure of the paragraph and the ways this structure paints a specific picture. This shows that you’re well aware of the ways the structure can influence the meanings of the texts in order to portray a specific message the author (Twain) wishes to portray. Your level of analysis was strong and consistent throughout! I too rather enjoyed Twain’s description of nature found within this paragraph, well done!
