most famous horse or blunt force anyone i haven't going
around rebounded made raven the original words Okay well let's
think about this bias Where does that come from Well
we're scanning the article for bias or some sort of
opinion express by the author But if we hook this
passage upto a lightning rod it with zap straight to
the phrase it is worth reading the eighteen eighteen addition
Like who says shelley's original version is worth the read
the author this claim there may not be merited but
either way it's the author's own opinion interjected in an
otherwise a neutral cold journalistic informational piece meaning when journalism
wasn't biased and marketing for politics Yeah okay loser bowl
Well the fact that shelley wrote frankenstein while on vacation
is just that it's a fact the language police sniffer
dogs would come up dry on this sense either general
summary of the story nor the date it was published
constitutes as opinion either So get rid of b and
c and the answer is d even though that publication
is the addition the majority of people read today it
is worth reading the eighteen eighteen edition because it is
written in the author's original words Okay that's it uh 00:01:26.808 --> [endTime] we're shmoop originally
