Welcome back to Tuesday. When we left last week we were reading through Of Plymouth Plantation to see what William Bradford thought about Massachusetts when the Pilgrims arrived on The Mayflower in November of 1620.
Today we will look at another colonial writer, William Byrd. He wrote about Virgina about 100 years later. His text is dense and might be challenging for you. I suggest that you either A. paste it into a new text template and annotate it as you go or B. paste it into a new blank google doc and annotate it as you go.
You are looking for quotes that show what Byrd thought about nature and the landscape he was writing about. Find at least four and paste them into your English Journal. Make sure you put them in quotation marks and EXPLAIN WHY EACH QUOTE SHOWS SOMETHING OF HIS VIEW OF THE NATURAL WORLD. Do not paste his entire text into your English Journal, just the four quotes and your explanation is all you should have there.
