    ENGLISH 2ND YEAR: Lesson 14: HOMEMAKING


    ENGLISH 2ND YEAR:

    Lesson 14: HOMEMAKING

    Q1. How early in the essay does raspberry state his thesis? Where in the essay does he restate it?

    Ans. Raspberry states his thesis in the first paragraph. He tells us that with he came to understand the homemaking and its contrast with the ordinary home-chores for the first time when his wife was out.
    The writer restates the thesis in clear terms in the fifth paragraph when he mentions that homemaking is not respected by men because they take it in term of a series of unpleasant chores.

    Q2. In distinguishing between routine chores and the “ongoing enterprise” of home and office, raspberry has employed division. What is his principle of division of work?

    Ans. This division is made y the author on the principle of the assignment of traditional roles to men and women in a society. Traditional husbands do not, perform house-tasks because they do not respect them, whereas, women do not know their husbands job too much

    Q3. What specific conclusions is he drawing about women and work? What general conclusions is he drawing about attitudes toward work in America?

    Ans. The conclusions that the writer derives are:
    I. Women work at their homes all day long but it is not duly appreciated by their husbands.
    II. Women sometime seek outside work primarily because they know that their homemaking skills are undervalued by their husbands.
    III. Women do not generally have sufficient knowledge about their husband work.
    Women in America like to work outside their homes because they know that there are important similarities between work at home and outside it. Moreover, they do not want to be wholly dependent on their husbands.

    Q4. What other illustrations might he have used to make his distinctions? Can you think of other work situations to which his distinctions apply?

    Ans. The author has used the illustration of honeybees in order to make the distinctions. He says that all the bee’s work for the hive by distributing the work among them. In the hive, one bee is the queen; some are drones while others are workers or laborers. All of them perform different jobs but their purpose is the same.
    I think the performance of different roles by team players in a football team is a situation to which the destination made by the author applies. In a football team, different players play at different positions. The duty of some players is to attack the opposite team’s goal while others try to fail the attacks of the other team. But the purpose of all the players is the same i.e. to win the match.
