I have written an argumentative definition paper about benign brain tumors. In the paper I state that malignant brain tumors are not more dangerous than benign brain tumors. In my body paragraphs I explain why benign brain tumors are dangerous by comparing their damaging effects to a malignant brain tumor's. In addition, I also show that the brain is a sensitive area, which is why benign brain tumors are so dangerous. The purpose of my essay is to show my readers that benign brain tumors are just as dangerous as malignant brain tumors.

Traditionally, women writers of the Harlem Renaissance era from Nella Larsen to Jessie Redmon Fauset to Marita Bonner, among others, have been under-represented in criticism both past and present. The concept of the New Negro, after all, was gendered male, excluding the value role that women writers would play in not only challenging the pervasive color line but in calling increased attention to the depths of African-American experience that, as Zora Neale Hurston posits, white publishers would not print.
