All Fahrenheit, All the time
There was a grand debate as to whether I should write my critical analysis paper for the writing sample to be included with my grad school application on a simple book that I knew well OR a more complicated and scholarly novel that I did not know at all. I finally, after asking several folks whose opinions I value, decided to use Fahrenheit 451 and am focusing on his use of rhetorical devices to develop both character and theme. I've written 9 pages thus far, so I'll not be writing much here until the paper is finished.
