revision workshop: specificity

[1]An example of how specificity matters: Robert Pinsky, “Shirt”

We can use the language resources of poetry (the techniques of our medium) to be specific and focus your reader’s attention effectively and imaginatively. 

[2]Peer Response:

a)The writer’s thesis/critical vision (report it back):

b)Identify a place where the essay could or should be more specific in its focus on the film (as a film)and its interpretation of the novel. Suggest ways the writer can be more specific.

c)Identify a place where the essay is being specific in an effective way: explain what the specificity is.
