hit me with the ?
But when the sun was getting low and everything seemed most bewildering and discouraging, I found beautiful Calypso on the mossy bank of a stream, growing not in the ground but on a bed of yellow mosses in which its small white bulb had found a soft nest and from which its one leaf and one flower sprung. The flower was white and made the impression of the utmost simple purity like a snowflower. No other bloom was near it, for the bog a short distance below the surface was still frozen, and the water was ice cold. It seemed the most spiritual of all the flower people I had ever met. I sat down beside it and fairly cried for joy. Use of Diction & Connotation
what do you need help with
didn't u post that in the other box?
nope different one
Are you supposed to rewrite that whole paragraph with diction and connotation?
or are u supposed to find the diction and connotation in the passage?
supposed to find the diction and connotation in the passage?
"I sat down beside it and fairly cried for joy." It seems the mystery of the flower below the ice excites the curiosity of Muir. His cry for joy indicates his excitement and obvious interest in the flower.
does that help?
like this Muir’s writing is formal and academic, describing the intention of his excursion (botanizing). He uses the word lonely which usually has a negative connotation, but being alone helps him focus and enjoy his work. He also describes “glorious freedom” which has a positive connotation. The word innumerable creates a sense of awe for boundless species of trees and plants.
