  • Bodily Movement Analysis

    Bodily Movement: The movement within the service was smoothly done. I will acknowledge that there was a great deal happening during the service that required movement. The children’s dance set the tone for the movement to come. I did appreciate that the Rev. Kletzing entered via the center aisle rather from somewhere in the back of the church.

The…

  • Onomatopoeia In Beowulf

    creates the image of a battle for the audience, and helps set the tone for the scene.
