ANALYSIS OF TWO PIECES OF WRITING AT THE MORGUE Helen Garner True Stories 1996 This article is written in the first persons point of view The style is informal almost chatty in spite of the morbid topic it deals with The author uses this style to tell the reader a story like telling a friend an experience The authors feelings and thoughts are freely expressed This helps to put the reader into the authors shoes to see through her eyes and feel through her heart This article is a narrative It does not aim to analyse the topic It describes the authors experiences at the mortuary and the resulting disturbing thoughts she had Descriptive language is used to give graphic details This paints vivid mental pictures in the readers mind It contributes to the feeling of personal involvement of the reader All the authors observations are described in detail Words used are simple yet effective The article was an enjoyment to read It provides an insiders view of what goes on in the mortuary where not many people can access It deals with a subject which people do not usually seek information on but are nonetheless intrigued by The style lessens the formality of the subject which makes it less scary to deal with The descriptive language is effectively used The expression of the authors feeling and thoughts encourages empathy from the reader with the author BASICS TRAINING Deborah Hope The Australian Magazine 1999 This article is written in a more detached style than the previous one It is more formal very factual and has a rather clinical feel It tells the story like a newspaper article It is a narrative as well although the style is very different The second persons point of view is used and the effect is clearly different from the first article It does not have the personal touch the first article gave It spells out facts
