Would you put yourself in a life threatening situation just to taunt someone? You probably wouldn’t, but Captain Torres would. This is what happened in “Just Lather, That’s all,” and the Captain got to do exactly what he aimed for. This story uses many different methods to give subliminal messages about the setting to the reader, keeping the reader interested and alert. By analyzing this piece and the techniques that the writer uses, we can tell that when Captain Torres walked into the barber shop and sat in the chair, he knew the barber would want to kill him.
Christopher Browning documents everyday experiences and tribulations of Germany men, who were involved in the tragic events of the Holocaust. Browning tries illustrate the reasoning of all the massacres caused by the Reserve Police Battalion 101, so that people could get a clear understanding of what really was going on with these men, physically and mentally. Looking past all the opposing claims of German men, Browning explains how these men were just regular “middle aged family men” who were taking basic orders from higher authorities (1). Throughout the book Ordinary Men, Christopher Browning explains his reasoning of calling these murders ordinary men, the reasoning behind all the massacres, and how these men later on became killers.
The narrator is particularly proud of the forethought in using a tub to catch the blood that would have stained the room testifying to the murder. The motivation for the narrator’s attention to detail was to hide the murder. This is why the narrator was not troubled when the police officers first arrive on the scene. He tells us, “I smiled, - for what had I to fear?”
In Darrow’s closing argument he gives his famed “A Plea for Mercy” to the judge. This plea not only acted as a conclusion to his defense, but it also acted as an introduction the eradication of the death penalty. Darrow uses a mix of ethos, pathos, logos, and other rhetorical devices to impose a merciful effect on his audience in hopes to reduce his clients punishment and the use of capital punishment. Darrow gracefully uses all three appeals when referring to the rise of crime after war “I know that it has followed every war; and I know it has influenced these boys so that life was not the same to them as it would have been if the world had not been made red with blood.
The author also writes,“What’s that noise, make it stop.” (paragraph 16). This example portrays situational irony, for when the narrator's guilt gets to the narrator, it is leading up to suspense and the confession of the murder. Poe uses this to help express the true feelings and intentions of the narrator when he talks about killing the old man and has the old man's heart drive him to confession. Poe also uses different types of irony which helps plays a very important role in The Cask of Amontillado as well.
From his version of the funeral orations given by Brutus and Antony, and the response of the crowd to each, valuable lessons can be learned about persuading people. The first funeral oration for Caesar was given by Brutus. As one of Caesar’s murderers, he needed to accomplish a lot in his speech if he wanted to persuade the crowd. Brutus needed to re-establish his credibility, which had been tarnished by his actions, prove that Caesar was guilty of a crime worthy of death, and show that the actions of the murderers were just. To accomplish this, Brutus relied on appeals to ethos.
The first line of defense was that they sent their troops down to guard the wall. The second was the command to shoot anyone who was escaping on sight, which is why there were hundreds of casualties. The West Berliners desperately tried, again, to get the help of the U.S. The following quote is President John F. Kennedy’s response to the cries of help, “A wall is a hell of a lot better than a war.” When he realized that this aggravated the West Berliners, he made a speech near the wall and tried to comfort them by saying, “Ich bin ein Berliner!” which translates to “I am a Berliner!”
On April 4, 1968, Robert F. Kennedy gave his remarks on the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr. Robert’s goal was to inform people on Martin Luther King’s journey and to strengthen people’s attitudes on the whole situation. Robert’s main points throughout the speech were how the country as a whole should move forward, why the states should not resort to violence but unity instead, and he also addressed that the country needed unity, love, and compassion.
In the very first sentence, he describes a scene where you picture “bullets” flying “through your windshield”(Barry pg 48). This acute image being in the first sentence of the essay gives out a huge shock value, making the audience want to keep reading. He then asks “how widespread is road rage?” (48), giving the reader some insight on how because there are so many people out in the world that have this rage, it creates a huge amount of danger. Starting the essay this way opens up the idea that the little things that make us angry throughout our day can lead to bigger issues with violence as he continues on to explain specific examples of things everyone experiences in their daily

d.) I do not think this book glorifies Eric and Dylan. It may seem that it is by detailing all the work they put into it, but the author does that to portray how dedicated they were to doing something so awful. The author does a great job of portraying the awfulness and brutality of the shootings. All the chapters following the shootings really show how it drastically affected the students of Columbine and so many others.
This editorial has a very strong sense of pathos, which helps the author grab a diverse group of people’s attention because it is relatable. The main claim states the real problem is the belief that all of our social problems can be solved with force. Ta-Nehisi backs this up with a few examples; the most heart wrenching has to be one about a young boy who was killed while playing with an airsoft gun. Furthermore, a mentally handicapped man decided to strip off all his clothes and parade down the street, he was shot on sight. This supports the fact that men and women trained to kill should not be addressing social problems where there is no

Once our emotions are conjured up and in tune, us as readers are more likely to agree with what the authors have to say. If Levitt and Dubner did not want us to
In the short story, “The Man I Killed,” O’Brien focuses on this to show that everyone fighting in a war has a story. He spends the story describing the man he killed and searching for justification of his actions. He carries around guilt with him because of it, and his fellow soldiers try to help him justify and come to terms with his action by saying things like, “You want to trade places with him? Turn it all upside down= you want that? I mean, be honest,” (126) and “Tim, it’s a war.
