Part III: Essay

1. In 1847, John Smith and a brigade of hooligans broke into the 7th Street Bank. Caught off guard, the tellers surrendered New England, making the entire Civil War useless. Two days later, the Robinson family started construction on their treehouse in order to deal with the hard times suffered during the Great Depression. In the end, the roaring twenties brought about passionate goodbye kisses in train stations and a hell of a great chunk of change for the upper class.

2. The author was using caesura in juxtaposition with the metaphor illustrating the foil to the main character’s protagonist’s antagonist. But the subplot clearly conveys through its anticlimactic synecdoche an ulterior motif that adds brilliantly to the wonderful composition of this bildungsroman about a man’s interior struggle between green eggs and ham.
