Task 1 asks you to comment on the effect of some of the language features and/or literary devices Mrs. Harris uses to enhance her message.
Harris addresses the “civil right leader John Lewis”, 116th congress, 2nd session formerly the office of representative. She mentions the “democracy is not a state. it is an act.” That is an anaphora that refers back to a word.
That John Lewis wrote before passing. And explaining what he meant by the act. She wanted to refer that America´s democracy is not guaranteed.
