  How the author uses personal anecdote:(如何分析议论文的引用写作手法)

  What the author does?(写了什么)

  Why he or she does it?(什么目的)

  What effect this is likely to have on readers?(什么效果)

  精读细析:原文:

  At my family’s cabin on a Minnesota lake, I knew woods so dark that my hands disappeared before my eyes. I knew night skies in which meteors left smoky trails across sugary spreads of stars. But now, when 8 of 10 children born in the United States will never know a sky dark enough for the Milky Way, I worry we are rapidly losing night’s natural darkness before realizing its worth. This winter solstice, as we cheer the days’ gradual movement back toward light, let us also remember the irreplaceable value of darkness.

  Let There Be Dark (OG732)

  分析:

  Bogard starts his article off by recounting a personal story – a summer spent on a Minnesota lake where there was “woods so dark that [his] hands disappeared before [his] eyes.”(What the author does?) In telling this brief anecdote, Bogard challenges the audience to remember a timewhere they could fully amass themselves in natural darkness void of artificial light. (What effect this is likely to have on readers?)By drawing in his readers with a personal encounter about night darkness, the author means to establish the potential for beauty, glamour, and awe-inspiring mystery that genuine darkness can possess.(Why he or she does it?) He builds his argument for the preservation of natural darkness by reminiscing for his readers a first-hand encounter that proves the “irreplaceable value of darkness.” This anecdote provides a baseline of sorts for readers to find credence with the author’s claims.
