Frankenstein’s Goulash

Re: AP Lang: The Synthesis Essay

If you see the above comment, here’s what went awry:

Instead of a unified essay that advances an original, topical argument by synthesizing the sources (i.e. integrating ideas in the service of claims and rebuttals, {with citations}), your writing is awkwardly cobbled together (i.e. the sources dominate such that finished product presents as vaguely related rhetorical mélange, roughly belletristic grammatical gallimaufry or even: gelatinous stew of fragmentary reflections. With fewer adverbs one might say: sad synthesis salmagundi, patchwork claim conglomerate or even: miscellaneous mucus of variegated verbiage. To wit, analytical anathema.).
