Legend of the Black Angel
Point of view/Bias
"I couldn't help myself"(Ray 84) This quote explains the point of view because it shows that Linc is the one thinking and that it is 1st person.
"The strictly scientific explanation is that the blackness is caused by the oxidation of the bronze resulting from its natural exposure to the elements." This quote shows that the bias from the website is against the false myths and misconceptions.
The quotes state the words from Theresa's grave, but it isn't the same information, so it's conflicting info
Is waiting for you after hardship."
Your spirit flies away where everlasting reward
You fold your hands and your head goes down.
You did my work just to make the world better.
There were tough and joyful days in my life.
"The sun and clouds stood above my journey
"For me the clouds concealed the sun. The path was thorny. The days of my life passed without comfort. I always accomplished my work for the good of the world. I fold my arms and bow my head, but my spirit flies away into the distance. Suffering is over. And eternal reward awaits you"(Ray 293.)
Main and Supporting ideas
The quotes help explain that the main ideas of both the website and book is the true story of the Black Angel. The quote from the book shows that the Black Angel wasn't intended to be evil. The quote from the website explains some of the history of the Black Angel.
"You were right Delaney, Theresa wasn't evil, she was only heartbroken."(Ray 292)
"Iowa City's Oakland cemetery is home to the legendary Black Angel, which is an eight and a half foot tall burial monument for the Feldervert Family."
The quotes both show the common misconception that if you kiss the Black Angel will die instantly. Because Denaley didn't die instantly, the quote from the book shows that one of the misconceptions in the book is that if you kiss the Black Angel you will die. The website also states that this is a common misconception as well.
Website: "Anyone who kisses the Black Angel will die instantly."
"And we all seemed to fall into a trance as she inched along the pedestal's ledge and carefully leaned down and placed a gentle kiss on the angel's cold hand"(Ray 233)
