Elaboration Techniques: Vincent Van Gogh's 1882 Worn Out

Opinion Statement: Vincent Van Gogh's 1882 sketch depicts a man who looks devastated.

Compare and Contrast:Compared to his former self, he looked like a dried up weed in the desert, waiting for the rain that will never come.

Cause and Effect:...and because of what they went through, they will never be the same.

Describe Figuratively:They both resemble broken glass, shatterted into a thousand peices,...

Describe Concretely:...hunched over, elbows on his knees, his face buried in his hands.

Personal Experience/Anecdote:This quote reminds me of a story I once heard about a woman and her husband. The husband had to go to war and he wouldn't see his wife for a long time. As the time of his return came closer and closer, the wife got more excited to see him again. The next day, two weeks before his expected return, the wife recieved a letter. The letter told her that her husband had been killed in the war.

Clarification Statement: In other words, he looks as if he had been consumed by hopelessness.

Vincent Van Gogh's 1882 sketch depicts a man who looks devastated. In other words, he looks as if he had been consumed by hopelessness. This was exemplified by his slouched posture: hunched over, elbows on his knees, his face buried in his hands. Compared to his former self, he looked like a dried up weed in the desert, waiting for the rain that will never come. One of my favorite quotes says, "It takes twice as long to put yourself back together, as it does to fall apart." This quote reminds me of a story I once heard about a woman and her husband. The husband had to go to war and he wouldn't see his wife for a long time. As the time of his return came closer and closer, the wife got more excited to see him again. The next day, two weeks before his expected return, the wife recieved a letter. The letter told her that her husband had been killed in the war. I imagine that the woman in the story looked like the man in this picture after she recieved the letter telling her that she would never see her husband again. They both resemble broken glass, shatterted into a thousand peices, and because of what they went through, they will never be the same.
