What does life stand for? Paul Kalanithi explores this question in When Breath Becomes Air through various rhetorical devices. When it comes to figuring out the meaning of life and supporting his claims, however, Kalanithi’s most effective rhetorical strategy is deductive reasoning.

For example, Kalanithi writes, “Other romantic poems led me and my friends on various joyful misadventures … we often ...
Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion. Jane provides Mr. Rochester with the security of a well balanced future as his passion conflicts “the oath shall be kept” (Brontё 296). Nevertheless, Brontё illustrates how Mr. Rochester’s passion transfers from the embarrassment of Bertha to the proclamation of devotion to Jane. The passion for Bertha differentiates that for Jane, as Mr. Rochester hides Bertha from the public, but he flaunts his infatuation with Jane. Renewal of Mr. Rochester’s passion extracts from Brontё metaphorically “depicts Jane throwing the waters of baptism-- spiritual rebirth-- upon Rochester”

The more I hate, the more follows me... His folly, Helena, is no fault of mine"(1.1.193-200). Indeed, it takes time and courage to express ones own feelings in front of others. Plus, it is even harder to express the feelings about someone that his/her best friend loves, while they do not. As in this play, even Demetrius is Helena's beloved, Hermia still expresses all her feeling to Helena,
Following the background knowledge of her career and her father’s, Rosenberg includes an emotion filled sentence about O’Connell, “But behind the trophies and the swagger of the racing circuit, Hayes was harboring a painful secret: He had always believed he was a woman” (481). There are multiple words in the sentence that convey sympathy and guilt for O’Connell and her secret. The first word in the sentence but, suggests the opposite of something, and has a negative connotation towards the great amount of success she has had, which completely contradicts the feeling of happiness the reader could have had when reading about her success. Next, the author also uses the word behind, which creates an imagery effect of her having trophies and success

According to the ¨Author Study Nikki Giovanni¨ it states ¨Unfortunately, Giovanni´s independent spirit got her into trouble with the university authorities almost immediately¨ (Applebee 405). This displays the need for independence as is seen in ¨Choices¨. Needless to say “Choices” authenticates the connection with Giovanni's life and
Judy Brady’s “I Want A Wife” is a revolutionary piece that attempted to reveal the unequal roles men and women held in society. She goes through her prose by listing all the responsibilities her wife must have and the ways to make her happy. Brady’s whole article is satirizing these roles and is, in general, very sarcastic in her tone. She mocks a society that has given women an impossible standard and she starts with the deprivation of her education then continues with the role her wife should play in domestic ways, and then finishes with the expectations the sexual aspects of their relationship. I believe that Brady’s underlying message was and still is important for the development of equality in our nation.
