Identify the type of parallelism in each quote, explain its effect, and then model a sentence mimicking the 4 sentences separately. *I get the part of identifying the parallelism whether its parallel infinitives, nouns, adj, etc. However, what does it mean to explain its effect. Wouldn't the effect be the same. First, what is the effect? “To spend too much time in studies is sloth; to use them too much for ornament is affectation; to make judgement, wholly by their rules is the humour of a scholar.” (Francis Bacon) “Alas, art is long, and life is short.” (Ben Franklin) “Flowers are as common here… as people are in London.” (Oscar Wilde) “Where justice is denied, where poverty is enforced, where ignorance prevails, and where any one class is made to feel that society is in an organized conspiracy to oppress, rob, and degrade them, neither persons nor property will be safe.” (Frederick Douglass)
