Question and answer

these literary elements affect your reading experience?
The narrator's letters act neither as "chatty" correspondence nor as a narrative device that substitutes for conventional expository narration but could just as easily be replaced with some other device that gets the story told. The narrator's halting, circuitous language emphasizes its own unfolding as language, working to ensure that we are always as aware of this language as we are the story

The narrator's letters act neither as "chatty" correspondence nor as a narrative device that substitutes for conventional expository narration but could just as easily be replaced with some other device that gets the story told. The narrator's halting, circuitous language emphasizes its own unfolding as language, working to ensure that we are always as aware of this language as we are the story it is struggling to move along. The narrator is struggling with the story, and the manner of telling reinforces that struggle. Perhaps we could say that this method is "poetic," not so much because more often than not language is laid out on the page in a compressed way that seems "verse-like" but because it does stress so concertedly the effort to find efficacious expression of what one wants to say, to find the right means and medium.
thisi way they effect our reading experience

Weegy: Although the United States Constitution is a 200 year old document, it doesn't mean that it's not useful in today's century. It still remains an important and very well alive document. [ The Constitution is the "supreme law of the land" - the United States. An Outline of the Constitution The Constitution lays out the basic principles on which the United States government operates on. With a little more than 7,000 words, the Constitution can be easily read within half an hour. Unlike other constitutions, the Constitution is organized in a very simple and brief manner. The Constitution begins with an introduction, called the preamble. The rest of the document is split up into sections called articles. The first three articles talk about the three branches of government: judicial, legislative, and executive. Article IV talks about the relationship between the state and the national government. Article V talks about the process in which new amendments are to be made. Article VI talks about how the constitution is the ultimate law and Article VII talks about the ratification of the Constitution. The Basic Principles The Constitution is built upon the following six basic principles: 1. Popular Sovereignty 2. Limited Government 3. Separation of Powers 4. Checks and Balances 5. Judicial Review 6. Federalism Popular Sovereignty In the United States, all political power rests in the people. The people are the only source for governmental power. The principle of popular sovereignty is even declared in the introduction of the Declaration of Independence where the people "ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." In other words, the government draws its power from the people because the people are sovereign in the fact that a government can only govern under the consent of the people.
