Berry

Standard

Lecture notes attached here Berry

Now you can strikingly see the comparison of Berry to Paul Robeson; remember him? The tone of this short story changes from the very last paragraph. You could have sense that something would have happen from the final lines leading up to the end.

Did Berry deserve to be treated that way? Was he misunderstood? In many ways he was.

I want you guys to read this and analyze each paragraph; noticing the writer’s style and choice of words. Keep reading with passion;

Best Regards 🙂
