Throughout Act IV of Macbeth, William Shakespeare expresses Aristotles’s pathos. Pathos is a philosophy that evokes pity. In The Tragedy of Macbeth; Macduff and Lady Macduff are written to evoke sympathy from the audience. Shakespeare includes this scene full of pity, for he wants to give the characters emotion and Shakespeare wants to show the audience that the characters have a heart. Furthermore, In Scene II, Shakespeare uses pathos on Macduff.
After going through many years of being imprisoned and forced to work, African Americans were emancipated after the Civil War, but they were still not completely free. This lead many African Americans to move to the north where there were more jobs and less oppression.
The same year slavery was abolished, The Black Codes were created. These laws oppressed black people and restricted their freedom. Because of the poor treating of African Americans and the Black Codes, The Reconstruction period was a failure. Some people were very unhappy when slavery was abolished. Southerners were frustrated that their property would be taken from them and turned into citizens.
However, this act became almost obsolete after President Grant’s term. It would take until the civil rights movement before Blacks could vote uninhibited without poll taxes or literacy tests. The end of the Civil War brought along many changes for African Americans in the South. New legislation caused tension in the South as change swept through. The ratification of civil rights legislation created only a beginning of a change because the Emancipation Proclamation failed to free all slaves, Whites did not view Blacks as social equals, and most Southern Whites would not cooperate with the new laws.
47) The purpose of rhetorical question is to leave the audience wondering and to realize the author’s message without saying it directly. Ascher wanted her readers to understand about her point of compassion and so adding rhetorical questions to her essay, will lead her readers into analyze and understand her points.

It also allow for readers to debate whenever Ascher was true about the teaching of compassion instead of being a character
William Shakespeare conveys the theme, deception, throughout the play to give a moral lesson and to captivate the audiences. The main theme, deception, can be seen through the structure, dramatic techniques and the use of language. Deception is the act of causing someone to accept as true or valid what is false or invalid. Firstly, Shakespeare uses the structure, for example enjambment, sentence length, caesura and prose, to create the main theme, deception, in the text. This can be seen in ‘When?’, ‘As I descended?’ and ‘Hark, who lies i’th’second chamber?’ The repeated use of punctuation ‘?’ makes the audiences to feel anxiety since it shows that Macbeth worries about his crime and perfection of his deceiving others.
The Effect of Individuation on Macbeth in The Tragedy of Macbeth Harold Bloom’s essays, “To The Reader” and “Shakespeare’s Universalism, Part 1”, address how Shakespeare taught the modern human personality, therefore creating the modern human. A part of this idea can be applied to Macbeth's changes in personality in Shakespeare’s play, The Tragedy of Macbeth. Without Bloom’s argument, people would state that Macbeth's major changes were brought upon by outside factors rather than internal factors. Bloom’s idea of self-awareness and how characters can only go through change based on self-perception can be applied to Shakespeare’s play. Using Bloom’s argument, it can be observed how Macbeth’s actions bring upon self-aware personality change along with how his major changes were brought upon by himself, rather than by outside factors.
It has been observed before, that society for a long time discriminated against another minority, the blacks on the same basis - that they were different and inferior. The happy little homemaker and the contented "old darkey" on the plantation were both produced by prejudice…”-Shirley Chisholm This means that she feel `uncomfortable that many people don’t accept females and black to do a certain job. In addition, this also proves that she is forthright when it comes to her speeches. Another example comes from Listen a speech from Howard University by Shirley ‘’While nothing is easy for the black man in America, neither is anything impossible. Like old man river, we are moving along and we will continue to move resolutely until our goal of unequivocal equality is attained.
In the famous I Had A Dream speech Martin Luther King Jr. stated many things. One of these things was that the African Americans had been freed from slavery, but they were still not free since they didn’t have all of their rights and were not treated as equals. He repeats the term “one hundred years later,” to dramatize the time in which they have been supposedly freed but still faced discrimination. He then tells people why they are gathered around listening to him, and tells them what America was doing wrong. He then tells the people that they need to stand for what was right, and that they needed to do it now and not later.
African American literature, which has its origin in the 18th century, has helped African Americans to find their voice in a country where laws were set against them. The position of African Americans in the dominant society of the United States of America has not been an easy one. African Americans needed to find a new identity in the New World and were considered an underclass for a long time. In literature, African American writers have been telling the story of their complex experience and history. The mission to find their own voice was even more difficult for African American women who became targets of numerous insults, both during and after slavery, and were forced to be silent and to stand in the background for a long time.
In society, African Americans had been oppressed for a long time, leading to the ultimate question "Does it explode?" During the 1950s and 1960s, the black revolts in the North and South occurred. It came as a surprise, even though it shouldn 't have because regardless of everything being taken away from them one thing
To do this, they sent troops into the South, which they were not very pleased with. During Reconstruction, freed slaves still did not have the same opportunities that white people did. The Civil rights laws were made to protect former slaves and make sure everyone is equal, but still, the South cannot agree and continues to make life nearly just as bad as it had been before the war. In the document written by a former slave, he expresses how poorly they have been treated. When Lincoln was president, Reconstruction ran alot smoother.
According to document D many people argued that blacks were unfit to be government officials because they needed time to forget the things done to them when they were slaves and to learn “…true methods of gaining honorable subsistence…” The people of the North grew tired of dealing with problems that did not directly involve them, and reverted back to old racist ways which ultimately contributed to the fall of
Essay on Race African Americans have come a long way due to racial issues and discrimination. Most people forgot where the word Ghetto’s came from. The myth of the Ghetto’s came from the Supreme court, which they called the “Facto”. The Ghetto’s received this name due to many reasons. The one reason was because the individuals who stayed in the ghettos did not make enough of income.
Americans, whether they like it or not, share their living spaces with individuals from a multitude of different backgrounds, such as Hispanics and Latinos and African Americans and so on and so forth. This living situation, however, has been set in place since before the 1960s, when Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. wrote his letter “Letter From a Birmingham Jail.” Back in the 1960s, a large number of white people did not want to and would not live within the same community as black American citizens, and this racism towards the black population spanned further than just neighborhoods. Racism was rampant throughout the streets of America, and for the longest time, being an American meant living in a nation that was divided by color and, ultimately, status; those who were white were superior and those who were not were lower. America now, while integrated and preaching equality, still contains racism on mass levels, and to be an American now means having to face the reality that equality has still not been reached in society. Dr. King’s “Letter From a Birmingham Jail” goes in to detail about the injustice that existed on the streets of America in the 1960s, and it can still be used now to discuss the injustice on the streets today.
