  • ms. sue -

    I think the author ends with "the sight of my own particular eyes" to make it clear that this is her own personal view.

    The author begins with opposites to show the conflicting points of view she holds about her prairie town.

    Yes -- about the words. The appeal to our sense of hearing.

    What can you visualize in paragraph 4?

  • ms. sue -

    thanks very much ms. sue :)

    in paragraph 4 she tell about excitement she have riding horses. she tell about mocassins squeaking and slithering on the hard rutted snow of the roads.. she tell about adventure she have.

  • ms. sue -

    Right. This paragraph is full of images of children having fun.

    There is figure of speech in paragraph 3 “sea of land” and in paragraph 4 the prairie becomes “white dazzling deserts” what be five other figures of speech in story, tell impact of each .

    There be symbolism in paragraph 17. The crescenting of a fish stand for happiness, it stand for food and wealth. The sun represent new dawn. The sand ripples she sees on top of water be because she see things differently.
    I not know what be other figure of speech in story.

    Paragraph 4 begins "In winter . . ."

    You'll find several examples of alliteration if you look only at the first letter of two words.

  • ms. sue -

    She tells about the oddities, but also the problems and good things. She illustrates this when a man in another part of the country tells her that he once worked for her father. She brings up the ancestors of many Canadians who settled around the country.
