Sujet du devoir

bonjour, j'ai des questions sur un texte:


Perhaps I shall be told that by an improvement in the mode of cultivating the lands, more produce might be raised from the same quantity of labour that is now employed. I accede to this proposition.
I believe that even with the present quantity of labour, distributed judiciously, the crops might be trebled. But we are talking of enclosures in the present state of agriculture… We see nearly one-half
of the land which is already enclosed, lying in an unproductive state, or producing corn but once in two or three years, and then in very scanty quantity. Those who are so eager for new enclosures always seem to argue as if the waste land in its present state produced nothing at all. But is this the fact? Can anyone point out a single inch of it
which does not produce something and the produce of which is made use of? It goes to the feeding of sheep, of cows, of cattle of all descriptions; it helps to rear, in health and vigour, numerous
families of the children of the labourers, which children, were it not for these wastes, must be crammed into the stinking suburbs of towns. This is with me a consideration of great importance. In the beggarly stinking houses of towns, the labourers’ children cannot have health. […] All around this great tract of land, which is called waste, the borders are studded with cottages of various dimensions and forms, but the more beautiful for this diversity. The greater part of these are
encroachments, as they are called. For my part, rather than see them destroyed and their inhabitants driven into towns, I would freely resign all the claim I have either to the land or to the herbage.
These are my reasons for being glad that the General Enclosure Bill has failed.

William Cobbett, Political Register, July 1813


1. Why did William Cobbett write this article in 1813?
2. Does Cobbett believe that enclosures will help to feed more people? Justify your answer by quoting the text.
3. What arguments does he use to defend the existence of the ‘waste land’, or commons?
4. How valid is Cobbett’s analysis of the effects of enclosure in this passage?

Où j'en suis dans mon devoir

3. What arguments does he use to defend the existence of the ‘waste land’, or commons?
Reponse: the arguments does he use to defend the existence of the “waste land”, or commons : “We see nearly one-half of the land which is already enclosed, lying in an unproductive state, or producing corn but once in two or three years, and then in very scanty quantity. Those who are so eager for new enclosures always seem to argue as if the waste land in its present state produced nothing at all. But is this the fact? Can anyone point out a single inch of it “ .


4. How valid is Cobbett’s analysis of the effects of enclosure in this passage?
Reponse: in this passage, cobbett’s analysis of the effects of enclosure : “This is with me a consideration of great importance. In the beggarly stinking houses of towns, the labourers’ children cannot have health. […] All around this great tract of land, which is called waste, the borders are studded with cottages o various dimensions and forms, but the more beautiful for this diversity. The greater part of these are
encroachments, as they are called. For my part, rather than see them destroyed and their inhabitants driven into towns, I would freely resign all the claim I have either to the land or to the herbage. “
