I'm writing an essay and trying to determine an apt topic sentence for one of my paragraphs. However, it sounds awful and awkward:
"Through their diction, the authors further exemplify the importance of considering what objects represent instead of how they look. "
Earlier in the essay I referred to this point as:
- "...the two authors create a platform from which to assert the importance of internal, instead of monetary, worth" and
- "...both offer a glimpse into the lives of two lower-class families, urge against an obsession with monetary value, and demonstrate the importance of family." (thesis)
I thought those sounded better, but I want to change the phrasing so it doesn't look like the paragraph's topic sentence is copied and pasted from earlier.
I don't know if its a stretch posting here, but I'd appreciate some help :)
