    Reasons: 1. Considering that she can hardly afford soap, how does she afford the luxury of pen and paper to write the essay? 3. She uses advanced language for someone who quit school at such a low grade level. "It is remembering quitting school in junior high because 'nice' children had been so cruel about my clothes and my smell." 2. Parker does not use specifics in her essay and has broad, generalized experiences. 3. Parker uses different methods of language that is far beyond the skills of a girl who quit school at such a young age. "When I got [help]...it was and is, seventy-eight dollars a month for the four of us; that is all I can ever get. Now you know why there is no soap, no needles and thread, no hot water, no aspierin no worm medicince, no hand cream, no shampoo. Parker uses anaphora, when she repeats, "Poverty is..." She also uses irony to back up her argument, These skills are taught beyond the grade that she quit school at. Parker doesnt use dates or names anywhere in her essay to make her stories seem personal, or that they are her experiences. Reasons: "It is remembering quitting school in junior high because 'nice' children had been so cruel about my clothes and my smell." Rebuttle: People who believe that Jo Goodwin Parker is the authentic author of this essay would believe that are bound solely in poverty, but in fact, anyone can research, observe, or fabricate these stories. Thesis: Jo Goodwin Parker is not the authentic authoer of "What is Poverty?" because she has unpersonalized wrtiting, her style of writing is too advanced for her 7th grade education, and her lack of money would limit her abality to purchase stationary and writing utensils.

    Having experience while in poverty is better than living in a normal state. You could see comparisons within the context

    "Even the poor can dream. A dream of a time when there is money. Money for the right kinds of food, for worm medicine, for iron pills, for toothbrushes, for hand cream, for a hammer and nails and a bit of screening, for a shovel, for a bit of paint, for some sheeting, for needles and thread. Money to pay in money for a trip to town. And, oh, money for hot water and money for soap. A dream of when asking for help does not eat away the last bit of pride. When the office you visit is as nice as the offices of other governmental agencies, when there are enough workers to help you quickly, when workers do not quit in defeat and despair. When you have to tell your story to only one person, and that person can send you for other help and you don't have to prove your poverty over and over and over again."
