    Edgar Allan Poe does poetry work. so a literary piece would be one of his poems or something

    Well a literary piece is obviously just writing piece, and from Google, I have learned is that a unity of effect is basically to basically decide how he wants the reader to respond emotionally to a writing piece, and how he uses all his creative juices to make sure that effect happens.

    So what answer basically says, "I'm going to use everything I can, from sarcasm to hyperboles to make sure that this what I write, this awesome book, is going to make this person happy"

    I basically told you the answer. The unity of effect is when a writer writes a piece, and he basically uses literary devices, and everything he possibly can to reach an effect, an effect that the reader has. An emotional response!

    Yes and btw, I know what you're going through. I'm taking a Summer Course as well. We're in out 6th week(final week, which means finals ._.) and we have two finals this Friday. I've basically learned a years worth of information, in 5weeks. I filled out an entire composition notebook...I only have 3 pages left xD This is our last week and we are just reviewing cuz the final is a big part of our grade, so trust me, I know the stress. This isn't for credit recovering though, it's for advancement.
