8.Comment on the effect of contrast or juxtaposition, which will be in any description

It shows you how to model your own writing on that of other writers, using Brighton Rock. You get to see why knowing parts of speech is so important to developing your own skills as writers. This then makes the job of writing about the effect of language features so much more easy.
