Progymnasma 11: Impersonation (Prosopopoeia or Ethopoeia).
Making up how someone else might react about your theme.
Click on link and follow BYU website instructions. Imagine what you think one of your own great-great grandmothers might say about your theme. Write in English, in first person (i.e, use "I" and "me.") Your impersonation should be about 4 to 6 full paragraphs long, freestyle (do not use the 5 part format). Read Kennedy 115-7 (example) and 213-7 for how this should look! Do not just write ABOUT what she would say! Instead, make up what you imagine she might say in her own lifetime, in first person in her own voice, if someone told her back then that her great-great-grandchild would be defending this theme in a class at UTEP in the second decade of the 21st century. Would she be happy, sad, amazed, disappointed, confused, angry, astounded, or what?
