He also needs to re-manage it if he becomes a mayor. He says to his wife, “I care about this city it’s almost bankrupt. It’s ill-managed. The infrastructure is falling apart. Everything’s ground down by bureaucratic bullshit.
I’ve chosen to discuss two of the devices he used to make this argument so effective: tone and pathos. The tone of the letter portrays King’s attitude towards different subjects. The first example of this is seen in the quote, “I submit that an individual who breaks a law that conscience tells him is unjust, and who
For instance, Carnegie presented his library named Carnegie Library, he considers this “the best kind of philanthropy” (Ernsberger). By this he indicates the correct way a wealthy individual should live,is by giving back to the community. On the contrary, Richard argues this as negative affect to the company due to the loss of income. Richard believes that Carnegie shouldn’t have spent his money on helping the community instead, he should have continued to invest it on the steel industry. Overall, Richard views Carnegie as “little capitalist who urged presidents to do right things in Philippines, Panama and international diplomacy [but] had never done the right or moral thing as a businessman,” (Ernsberger).
The essay I have chosen to do is Abigail Adams’ Letter to John Adams now how I have perceived this assignment would be that I am to argue whether it pertains to the category of pathos being emotional, logos going with logic or facts and examples, and ethos which would be ethical/morals. Now I’ll go into a little more depth about why it is pathos; the rhetorical appealing of our emotions. First things first would be my examples one being when she writes in her letter to him “acquiescing in a painful separation from the companion of my youth, and the friend of my heart.” Right here she is pretty much saying that despite all her efforts to not be sad about his departure she can’t help but feel lonely without him, in this other one “shall we not be
She uses this quote to strengthen her argument that lying can only be used productively if used with a purpose. In conclusion Ericsson persuades the reader that there good that comes from telling a little white lie. She went in depth by explaining “The Ways We Lie” and all of the different types of lies that are out there. Ericsson did a great job of persuading the reader what is morally right and
John Proctor’s act of tearing up the confession is an act to regain his lost honor and integrity. Throughout the text John Proctor makes various statements about his name and how it shall not be tarnished. Proctor then tells about how he and Abigail had an affair, which tarnishes his name. That then brings forth his drive for initiative. John Proctor takes his opportunity when it comes upon him instantly and puts on a grade “A” act.
Robert F. Kennedy once quoted Aeschylus saying “we must suffer into truth” as the news of Martin Luther King Jr.’s tragic assassination became true. The play Antigone from the Theban Plays written by Sophocles, tells the story of a king, Creon, who must learn to “suffer into truth” and change. Likewise, in the film Michael Clayton directed by Tony Gilroy, shows a lawyer, Michael Clayton, and his journey to change. Although Michael Clayton and Creon both learn they must “suffer into truth,” Creon’s delayed action condemns his family, while Michael Clayton changes just in time. Both characters experience hubris, hamartia, anagnorisis, and catharsis.
Fahrenheit 451 is a book about Guy Montag; a fireman living with his wife in a dystopian future where books are illegal. Firemen are responsible for burning houses that have books in them and arresting people who have books. This all changes when Guy starts collecting books as well. This leads him to go on a perilous adventure that could get him killed. In Fahrenheit 451, Ray Bradbury uses allegories, motifs, and symbols to show that censorship is a danger to society and it will lead us to our doom because it results in us being desensitized, depressed and violent.
Gandhi once said, “Be the change that you wish to see in the world.” In The Crucible, written by Arthur Miller, when characters are faced with differences between one another, they tend to show what they want the world to see instead of their true beliefs. Reverend Hale fights a battle between what he has been studying his whole life against what he feels is truly right. In the end he completely undergoes an important inner change, he sees the false accusations in the witch trials and changes from believing completely in witchcraft, to protecting the innocent and doing anything in his power to save their
In The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Stevenson uses diction, imagery, and details to characterize both sides of his main character. I. Stevenson uses diction to characterize Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde to create a mood for the story. A. “I cannot find words to thank you. I believe you fully I would trust you before any man alive, ay, before myself if I could make the choice…”
4) He argues that the goal for a writer is to find the right approach in order for the audience to understand his side. 1) All good writers write “shitty” first drafts, but you should still write them regardless of how bad they might turn out. 2) She directly states her thesis in the essay, gives an example of when she
His quote also shows that he believes when citizens wanted to leave destitution and rise out of living in housing projects, they could do so through their own willpower. This shows his callousness towards a life of poverty and his tendency to resort to blaming. No one truly wants to live in the worst setting and feel like they are helpless, poor, and non-contributors to society. His lack of care for those who lived in the poorest housing or no housing at all showed how little he understood about the correlation between economic growth and living environment.
