Now that you’ve read both Joan Didion’s and Lia Purpura’s work, I’d like for us

Now that you’ve read both Joan Didion’s and Lia Purpura’s work, I’d like for us to expand our critical reading to look not just at one author’s work, but at comparing and contrasting the stylistic and rhetorical choices made by both.
In a post of 500+ words, compare the way you think these two essays/authors made sentence-level choices, and how those choices have impacted their essays (consider some of what we’ve already discussed/read about: syntax, sentence length, rhythm, pacing–these are all potential starting points!). And be specific: give examples from each text to help illustrate and support your claims.
The argument you make is entirely up to you, but try to keep it narrow. This is the exact kind of work that you’ll be doing in your Final Essay, so this is a good opportunity to practice and get feedback on your analysis and argument skills!
After you submit, please respond at length to at least ONE peer. Your responses should add something new (refer to a detail on a particular page, introduce a new point your peer hasn’t yet made, etc.), whether or not you’re agreeing with their analysis. (Disagreements, of course, are allowed! Please just be courteous, kind, and detailed.)
