Transcript of Prose
Prose is a form of language that shows a grammatical structure and a natural flow of speech like in newspaper articles or in notes,rather than a rhythmic structure as in traditional poetry.
Parallelism is the use of components in a sentence that are grammatically the same.
Mood is a literary element that provokes certain feelings or vibes in the readers through words and descriptions.
The mood of the poem "
" the speaker which can be the mom or the dad tell the discomfort between the son and daughter because their children try their best to be happy with who they are but they truly aren't.
peers into the mirror, mirror on the wall
frowns at her face, her eyes, her skin,
not fair" lines10-12
while my son
jogs a mile in the cold dark
then lifts weights in the garage
curls and bench presses
expanding biceps, triceps, pectorals,
one handed push-ups, one hundred sit ups
peers into that mirror, mirror, and frowns too
Analytical Critique : In the poem by Pat Mora, Mood is used when she mentions how her children aren't happy and are insecure with their looks she explains what they do every morning and nights . The speaker sounds disappointed and as if they failed their kids.
Rhetorical Criticism: "Peers into the mirrior ,mirrior on the wall frowns at her face,her eyes,her skin not fair" at this point the speaker is showing how the girl is insecure of herself. Insecure that the his / her children wake up early to try to look their best and the othjer stays up in the night trying to stay fit.

:An expression designed to call something to mind without mentioning it explicitly; an indirect or passing reference.
Analytical critique: In the poem Same Song, by Pat Mora, prose is used throughout the entire poem because she uses ordinary speech without a rhyme scheme or metrical structure.
Ex: While my sixteen-year-old son sleeps,
my twelve-year-old daughter
stumbles into the bathroom at six a.m.
plugs in the curling iron
squeezes into faded jeans
curls her hair carefully
Synecdoche is a figure of speech in which a term for a part of something refers to the whole of something
Prose form: While my sixteen year old son sleeps, my twelve year old daughter stumbles into the bathroom at six a.m. plugs in the curling iron,squeezes into faded jeans and carefully curls her hair.
:The allusion of the story " Same Song" would be on line (11) when the daughter says "mirror on the wall"frowns at her face, her eyes, her skin,
:In my opinion the author is trying to persuade us to not be unhappy . The author proves this to us by using the example of the the fairy tale snow white. The witch in the fairy tale is unhappy with herself as well as the children in the poem "Same song".
Example from poem: parallelism shows that the son and daughter are being different in action, but the same in tone/reflection because they both try their best to look good.
Analytical criticism: In the poem
parallelism is used when both the daughter and son are trying to make themselves look good but they don't think feel like they are.
Ex: "stumbles in to the bathroom at six a.m." line 3 this refers to the daughter waking up really early.
Rhetorical criticism: Is when the author is trying to persuade the reader to that when trying to look your best, you won't feel it because one may think that they are still not the best looking.
Analytical criticism: Synecdoche is used when the daughter and son want to become a different person, but not caring what the price is, and still looking into the mirror with a frown.
Rhetorical criticism: Is when the author is saying that the son runs at nine p.m and the daughter gets ready at six a.m just so they could look like the apparence they want to be like.
Rhetorical criticism: Pat Mora wrote the poem in prose form for us to understand the meaning of the poem better.From the poem we can understand that the two children in the poem are not happy with the way they look, so they both do different activities to make their appearance better, but in the end they both look at the mirror and frown because they don't feel confident about their physical characteristics.
was use when the author Pat Mora uses the example "mirror mirror" to explain to the reader that the daughter is trying to make herself happier by wearing makeup to try to make herself look better but truly she isn't happy with herself.
The tragedy of Julius Caesar
In the tragedy of Julius Caesar , in Act 3 scene 2 Brutus speaks in prose form rather than in verse.
Ex of prose form: Then follow me, and give me audience, friends. Cassius, go you into the other street and part the numbers. Those that will hear me speak, let' em stay here; those that will follow Cassius, go with him.
