Lets Read Paragraph 1 Together The long June twilight faded into night. Dublin lay enveloped in darkness but for the dim light of the moon that shone through fleecy clouds, casting a pale light as of approaching dawn over the streets and the dark waters of the Liffey. Around the beleaguered Four Courts the heavy guns roared. Here and there through the city, machine guns and rifles broke the silence of the night, spasmodically, like dogs barking on lone farms. Republicans and Free Staters were

waging civil war. Historical Back Ground Republicans-Catholics-Wanted to be unionized or together as one republic-like how we say I pledge allegianceto the republic, for which it stands Free Staters (Protestant/Anglican)-Wanted Division not Unity or a Union with the Republic. This is a religious war. Imagine if you had to fight people in your family over religious and

territorial differences. In this war, people could have very well been fighting against their family. Whole Class Discussion What is O'Flaherty's purpose in this opening paragraph? How does he achieve that purpose? How does this opening description of civil war compare to your description from todays bell work?

Ascetic- reclusive, longer, lone-wolf ex: a monk or a hermit is an ascetic Fanatic- a person filled with excessive and single-minded zeal, especially for an extreme religious or political cause Paragraph 2 On a rooftop near O'Connell Bridge, a Republican sniper lay watching. Beside him lay his rifle and over his shoulders was slung a pair of field glasses. His face was

the face of a student, thin and ascetic, but his eyes had the cold gleam of the fanatic. They were deep and thoughtful, the eyes of a man who is used to looking at death. Does anyone heard of a fanatic? Quang Duc Mohamed Bouazizi

Quang Duc, a Buddhist monk, burns himself to death on a Saigon street June 11, 1963 to protest alleged persecution of Buddhists by the South Vietnamese government. When Mohamed Bouazizi set himself alight on Dec. 17, he sparked flames far greater than the

ones that would ultimately kill Turn & Talk What do you learn in this section of the text, and HOW do you learn it? Do you use indirect or direct characterization? S-T-E-A-L METHOD FOR Direct & INDIRECT CHARACTERIZATON
