Having lived in Durham, . for a few years, like the writer of this piece, I thought to comment and add a few names that Hemingway would not have known in his day yet I feel the same way about, although I have little care whether anyone else really likes them or not. This is the
good thing about not yet being “named” a classic, although each of these authors have several that are that. In
10 seconds of thought, a short list forms, something by: John Le Carre, Mark Helprin, Barbara Kingsolver, increasingly, and Cormac McCarthy.
Meanwhile, it may with little fear of contradiction be asserted that there never was, in any nation of which we have a history, a time in which life and property were so secure as they are at present in England. The sense of security is almost everywhere diffused, in town and country alike, and it is in marked contrast to the sense of insecurity which prevailed even at the beginning of the present century. There are, of course, in most great cities, some quarters of evil repute in which assault and robbery are now and again committed. There is perhaps to be found a lingering and flickering tradition of the old sanctuaries and similar resorts. But any man of average stature and strength may wander about on foot and alone, at any hour of the day or the night, through the greatest of all cities and its suburbs, along the high roads, and through unfrequented country lanes, and never have so much as the thought of danger thrust upon him, unless he goes out of his way to court it.
I have some concern regarding with what I learned from my teacher. It somewhat confused me compared to what i learned from your site and from other resources in the internet.. According to her, i have to follow the specific structure for every type of essay. Like the argumentative essay, for example, it should be written in 3 paragraphs only. First paragraph includes paraphrasing the question and my personal opinion about the paragraph should contain the reasons why i disagree or disagree and its supporting details. Lastly, template, paraphrased question, my opinion, and recommendation must be found in my last paragraph which is the third one.
