Prompt #18

Write a review. You may choose any piece of writing - from War and Peace to If You Give A Mouse A Cookie. With the genre in mind (obviously a narrative will not have a proper thesis) consider the following aspects of the writing:

  • Word choice
  • Statement, moral, or thesis
  • Progression and development
  • Structure (how is the writing broken up or clumped together, rhyme and meter, prose, technical or fanciful, and how does this contribute to the piece as a whole?)
  • What is unique to the writing?
  • What puts you off about the writing?
  • Who would best benefit from this piece of writing?
  • Why do you think the writer wrote this?
