Reading Water: Lessons from the River by Rebecca Lawton on i
A uniform, universally accepted doctrine of Socialism had not existed since 1905, when the revisionist movement, headed by Bernstein, arose in Germany, countered by the formation, in the see-saw of tendencies, of a left revolutionary movement which in Italy never quitted the field of phrases, whereas, in the case of Russian socialism, it became the prelude to Bolshevism. Reformism, revolutionism, centrism, the very echo of that terminology is dead, while in the great river of Fascism one can trace currents which had their source in Sorel, Peguy, Lagardelle of the Movement Socialists, and in the cohort of Italian syndicalist who from 1904 to 1914 brought a new note into the Italian socialist environment - previously emasculated and chloroformed by fornicating with Giolitti's party - a note sounded in Olivetti's Pagine Libere, Orano's Lupa, Enrico Leone's Divenirs Socials. When the war ended in 1919 Socialism, as a doctrine, was already dead; it continued to exist only as a grudge, especially in Italy where its only chance lay in inciting to reprisals against the men who had willed the war and who were to be made to pay for it.The Popolo d'Italia described itself in its subtitle as the daily organ of fighters and producers.

Rebecca Lawton, a retired river guide, came to her passion for the outdoors through her mother's love of the wilderness and her brother's river guide career. As these essays meander through time, they reveal not only her love for her calling, but also her development as a person, guide, and scholar of the rivers of the West. The hard work and danger that a river guide faces on a daily basis become a comfortable routine as awareness and familiarity with the ways of the rivers grow, and readers come to share Lawton's loves and fears, and the black hole of depression that follows her thrilling summers. Lawton does, however, make use of her off-the-river seasons in college and graduate school, where she studies the geology and history of the landscape that she loves; then, later, after marriage and parenthood, she starts a career as an environmental consultant. The lyricism of Lawton's prose mirrors the natural elegance of what she describes, and the excitement she conveys makes readers long for a run through the rapids. -Booklist
Reading Water is “...the spiritual autobiography of a true whitewater gypsy, giving us a seasoned depiction of the nomadic culture, empty canyons, and wild western rivers that define and haunt her.”

When I read other tools for writing task 2, I saw that intro paragraph should have 3 parts, general statement, referal to the viewpoint in the question and my answer to the question. When I look at the this model essay, it does not have a general statement, it directly starts with viewpoint in the question. Which one is correct?
Thank you everyone!

i have a question or you can say confusion specifically related to this model essay. you see question asked about how far you agree with the topic, in my opinion before reading the model answer most of us including me would have chosen a side either agree or disagree. but now my question is you’re partially supporting that’s individual benefits at the same time you’re also talking about negative impacts on society. so in this situation i’m not sure how to do this agree and disagree for the same topic… could we have gone the other way around like conventional way of choosing one side?

In this essay discussion, I am going to compare/contrast the author’s purpose, the intended audience, and the impact on the reader’s that each author intended to accomplish through the essay that they wrote; I also plan to show that the descriptive essay communicates the author’s point of view superior to that of the narrative essay....
Looking for a taste of what we like
I just wondering for agree and disagree instruction, so is it okay if we agree in half case and disagree in other case, for example your essay. I read from other’s website, we should choose only one, agree or disagree. Thank you
