Analysis of “Save the Whales. Screw the Shrimp” by Joy Williams “Save the Whales. Screw the Shrimp” by Joy Williams is an essay directed towards the human race. and how nature is being ruined by it. The human race is a big audience. but she believes that everyone is responsible for the devastation of nature. except herself of class. Williams wrote in such a satirical manner. giving herself an advantage. or authorization. over the audience. She showed such authorization in that she used 2nd individual throughout the full essay. as if demanding her audience to listen to what she had to say- “I don’t want to speak about me. of class. but it seems as though far excessively much attending has been lavished on you lately…” ( Williams 581 ) . By utilizing 2nd individual and such strong tone toward the audience. she surely made an feeling.
She ever regarded nature as to holding really great. important importance to her. as it should. as she capitalized nature as though one would with God. The exigency that Williams addressed is that grasp for nature has all but about diminished to the human race as of today- “…you don’t believe in Nature anymore” ( Williams 581 ) . and. harmonizing to Williams. if we don’t change by reversal it so our Earth will go a really dead one- “…making you progressively aware that you’re a small excessively tardily for nature” ( Williams 583 ) . This last quotation mark surely appealed to my personal emotions. and perchance to others readers’ poignancy. It made me experience bad that I don’t spend much clip outside seeking to salvage the environment. do it better. etc. But what good would it make. compensate? Because harmonizing to Williams. it won’t make any good since we are. after all. excessively late for nature. Williams. Joy. “Save the Whales. Screw the Shrimp. ” 8 Feb 2010.
