Style and McCourt Essay
Frank McCourt’s excerpt, “Excuses, Excuses” takes on a conversational tone. Is it instructive? How Is is humorous? How? Is it didactic? That is, does it teach us something? How?
Frank’s writing style is incredibly unique because it assumes a conversation between the reader and the speaker. However, some individuals tend to think that Frank has his writing as a conclusion of what he is thinking. In the entire writing, the author does not use any quotations and ensures that he skips very large time periods. In my opinion, the lack of quotations and the skipping of some periods in his writing make his writing instructive. This method of skipping some time allows the readers to fill in the gaps in their own way since it becomes annoying to have to skip the information about what happened.
