Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published. Asma did an excellent job convincing his audience using emotion, logic, and ethics. Besides his use of logic, there is a large amount of pathos in his writing, which makes the reader perceive that he is writing to a skeptical audience. For example, describing how in modern films, such as Frankenstein, “we dramatize the rage of the monstrous creature…then scold ourselves…[for being an] intolerant society”(61). “The liberal lesson of monsters
The Toxicity of Humanity’s Advancement: An Emotional Argument Robert Crumb, one of America’s most legendary cartoonists, and Joni Mitchell, the Canadian folk-rock singer-songwriter, collaborated on “A Short History of America”. While the short was composed of already published works; the combination of Crumb’s comic, “A Short History of America” and Mitchell’s song, “Yellow Taxi Cab” bombarded the senses of viewers everywhere with literary appeals. Emotional appeals were found in abundance through the visuals and the audio, these appeals further the particular argument this dynamic duo is perpetuating about the destruction of the environment in the way of progress.

George Orwell’s 1984 and William Golding’s Lord of the Flies have both stirred up the critics of their times, being each of their author’s most famous novels. After reading the books I felt they shared a similar tone, however their messages seemed very different. Superficially, that would be a true statement, however after reading beyond what is presented on the pieces of paper that constitute both novels, one would realize a shocking resemblance between the two. 1984 is a pure reflection of a totalitarian dictatorship where people are brainwashed to believe the government is oh so gloriously divine, turning them into no more than followers trapped in a box of ignorance and naivety. However, Lord of the Flies focuses on how one’s innate human evil takes control in times of disorder and chaos.
‘’The savage in man is never quite eradicated’’ said the well-known philosopher, journalist and poet Henry David Thoreau. William Golding created Lord of the Flies, which is a magnificent novel that blends the civilized and primitive manners of humankind sufficiently. Golding witnessed the major chaos on world in 1940s and 1950s which he was inspired while the huge conflict between savagery and civilization was going on. By writing Lord of the Flies, Golding originated and used the actions and dialogues of Piggy, Ralph and Roger to prove that human nature has two sides: both a need to be civilised and a need to be primitive at the same time. First of all, Piggy has a high opinion of law, rules and order even if he sometimes exposes his primal instincts in the meantime, so that he expresses human nature with both sides.

In the book The Odyssey, translated by Robert Fagles, the main character Odysseus can be described as “good guy”. When Odysseus sets out from his home, Ithaca to fight in a long war, he is faced with many problems that lead him to fighting for himself by occasionally being violent to protect himself. The issue with this is that some readers get the idea that he is just violent, which makes him a bad man. Although Odysseus can be violent sometimes, he is a good man because he is a good husband, he always looks out for his crew and is kind to everyone he meets on his journey Despite some violent actions Odysseus does, he is a good man because he was a very good husband

Pedings Collin Pedings Hensley English 11/ Second Period 27 February 2018 Part 12: Rough Draft #1 Mark Twain can be considered as one of the greatest writers in American literature. Mark Twain’s writing career started out in a printing company where he created humorous cartoons and short articles. This at which developed his iconic writing style, which is a twist of Allan Poe’s suspenseful writing with humor to create isolation towards a topic to entertain a reader. Mark Twain’s peculiar style shows in many of his literary works, especially in “The Invalid’s Story”. In Mark Twain’s “The Invalid’s Story” the themes of human mortality, the use of foreshadowing, and having a sense of humor not only progresses the plot of the story but also entertains the readers.
Means’ work is most often compared to the writings of renowned authors like the Nobel Prize winning, Alice Munro, Ernest Hemingway, and Flannery O’Connor. Like O’Connor’s work, Means focuses on the troubles and corruption of American society while hinting subtly at underlying themes of religion, grace, sin, or redemption, and like O’Connor’s stories, his writings often become teachings for his readers. In an interview with Tom Barbash for the Rumpus, David Means says his stories are deeply personal and says he wants to “tell stories that were compelling and sparked my creative energy, but also to find some way, each time, in each

Audio Book Review ‘The Secret Chord’ (King David) by Geraldine Brooks [Video] Written by a Pulitzer Prize Winning Author! The Hebrew Bible claims; God loved King David most. Whether you view The Bible as a religious guide, history book, or a timeless work of literature, you likely find this idea perplexing enough to have a few questions pass through your mind’s eye. After all, King David was a warrior, a military leader that was responsible for many deaths, albeit to claim an earthly kingdom for God, many shed blood. Obviously addicted to power, for many, what makes this celestial favoritism even more compelling is David’s narcissism that often manifested as philandering with the wives of other men, and ultimately claiming them as his own.
An example of a false representation of the dictator is Stalin or Hitler. They both showed pride with posters, books, for the public to convince on how they were such good leaders but really they were not as they had killed millions, in The Holocaust or Stalin Purges. (OI) Trujillo was one of those guys, and he affected Alvarez mother as pulling her into this trap of mesmerising him as a hero.
The basis of the persecution and murder by the Germany authorities was attributed to the fact that they perceived the Jews to be an inferior race. The issue was measured to be a historic landmark; as a result, many scholars wrote about the issue for pure academic purposes in recognized educational materials such as journals and books. However, the presentation in a comic manner by Spiegelman was perceived to be exceptional. Another reason Maus was worth winning the Pulitzer Prize was the graphic novel was a reflection of a tireless innovator who was ready to tackle a somber issue in a manner that both the adult and children could easily read and comprehend. The innovativeness of the author was apparent from being competent to create first-hand
N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2016). Michael Ledeen wrote a book and talked a lot about the way Machiavelli talked and he says, "Machiavelli expands the earlier paradox: just as the quest for peace at any price invites war and, worse than war, defeat and domination, so good acts sometimes advance the triumph of evil, as there are circumstances when only doing evil ensures the victory of a good cause."
