Analysis of Persuasive Writing and Humor in Native American Literature

Analysis of 'Growing Up Native' by Carol Geddes

Part1: Persuasive Writing Analysis Read “Growing Up Native” by Carol Geddes and answer the following questions. 1. The tone of this story creates the effect of being told a story in person. Cite passages where “Growing Up Native” comes across as oral history, as a tale told in person. Why would Geddes have taken this approach? (Answer should be in paragraph form with well-integrated quotes as support.) 2. In paragraph 2, Geddes tells of the “sting of humiliation and the boot of discrimination.” What figure of speech is this? Find other good examples of figurative language in paragraphs 9, 12, and 15. Also, find an example of synecdoche in paragraph 1; asyndeton in paragraph 6; and anaphora in paragraph 8. 3. “I remember it was cold…” says Geddes in her opening sentence and “Someday, when I’m an elder…” she says in her closing sentence.
