Over the course of learning about the French Revolution, I compared the novel The Bad Queenwritten by Carolyn Meyer, with an article called “The French Revolution” by Martin Dickins. While both pieces have standard diction, they used a variety of word choice to create contrasting tones. The novel used a contemplating and critical tone; while the article had an objective and factual tone. For sentence structures, both novels consisted of simple sentences; however, the novel had compound-complex, while the article used compound sentences. Although, both writings were about the French Revolution, they used irreconcilable styles to elucidate the factors that led France in debt in the 1780’s.
