Specific Guidelines for this Discussion

In Chapter 9, "Of Conflict," Dinty Moore discusses the importance of including some tension, problem, or form of conflict in one's essays. Moore also talks about how a good essayist needs to have "some fire in the belly" (Moore 104) in order to appeal to readers. Moore refers to 19th-century essayist William Hazlitt, whose essay "On the Pleasure of Hating" sparks readers' interest because not only does it suggest conflict as early as its title; it also shows the author's awareness of his own participation in the not-so-pleasant action of strongly disliking something.

After reading/reviewing Chapter 9, please respond to Moore's writing exercise on pp. 106-107: "'What else can you plug into that phrase, "On the Pleasure of __________' [ . . . ]?" In your post, please follow Moore's advice to (a) "back up your provocative title with tangible examples"; and (b) mention how you are complicit in the action that you're discussing (107). Please have fun with this exercise, but please take it seriously, too. 

Citing your source(s): Please include in your post at least one specific reference to Chapter 9. Please refer to the guidelines in Format for Citing Sources in Your Writings.

Best wishes for contributing to this discussion!

Sincerely,
Jennifer Love
