Thematic statement-- how about something like this?
The author makes a convincing argument that a pencil is more efficient than a computer.
Yes, the title is ironic because odes are written for heroes.
Your friend is right about those passages being ironic.
Does it make sense to spend money to make more money? My computer hasn't brought me much money in the last 10 years or so.
It's ironic because we don't usually think of a pencil as an old friend.
Pencils are made in British Columbia, while computers are made in foreign countries. Buying pencils provides employment for local people.
thanks very much ms. sue:)
i still need a little help with the irony part, like im kind of confused with irony. by being ironic the author mean opposite of what she say?
there be no irony in this passage right?
compared to a computer, a pencil takes up far less space on a desk and it can be utilized in a car, bathroom, or telephone booth without the aid of batteries. You can even use one during an electrical storm. Pencils don't cause eye strain and no one has ever screamed, after four hours of creative endeavour, "The pencil----ate my story"
also ms. sue about thematic statement? dont it have to be about irony? because i writing paragraph on irony? i have to write thematic and thesis statement.
The ironic part is that the author is right -- but it is not what the reader expects. Obviously, those of us who use a computer don't even begin to compare it with a pencil.
oh that make much sense,thanks ms sue :) also do that paragraph up above have any irony in it? because author be right in that but not what we expect.
for thematic statement, it have to be a global statement that not mention specifics from the story, but generalizes accurately and comphrensively about the story's main meaning. i still not understand though how to write it, because it have to be ironic dont it?
How about --
Sometimes the simplest tool is the best.
thanks very much ms. sue :) i like that one :) and for thesis statement i mention the article and say author show how something so simple can be so much more useful than ?
You're very welcome, Mohammad.
Yes, your idea for a thesis statement is good.
