An excerpt from
The Pleasures of Imagination
” by Joseph Addison
The pleasures of the imagination, taken in their full extent, are not so gross as those of sense… A man of polite imagination is let into a great many pleasures…
A man should endeavor, therefore, to make the sphere of his innocent pleasures as wide as possible, that he may retire into them with safety … Delightful scenes, whether in nature, painting, or poetry, have a kindly influence on the body, as well as the mind, and not only serve to clear and brighten the imagination, but are able to disperse grief and melancholy…
Descriptive writing style
the author focuses on describing an event, a character or a place in detail. Sometimes, descriptive writing style is poetic in nature in, where the author specifies an event, an object or a thing rather than merely giving information about an event that has happened. Usually the description incorporates sensory details.
A drop fell on the apple tree,
Another on the roof,
And made the gables laugh,
The breezes brought dejected lutes,
And bathed them in the glee;
And signed the fete away.
(Summer Shower by Emily Dickinson)
Persuasive style of writing is a category of writing in which the writer tries to give reasons and justification to make the readers believe his point of view . The persuasive style aims to persuade and convince the readers.
The death penalty is a good deterrent for criminals and is fair because the Bible says an eye for an eye. We should keep the death penalty on the books.

It is an ancient Mariner,
And he stoppeth one of three.’
By thy long grey beard and glittering eye,
Now wherefore stopp’st thou me?
The bridegroom’s doors are opened wide,
The guests are met, the feast is set:
Mayst hear the merry din.
(The Rime of the Ancient Mariner by Samuel Taylor Coleridge)
The author’s purpose is his/her
reason for writing.
There are three main purposes for writing. (To entertain, inform and persuade).
