Unferth and Beowulf show anger toward each other in different ways for example unferth is shown as someone who is jealous of beowulf and will use any flaws that he sees in him to make him look bad. “unlocked his thoughts with these unfriendly words for the journey of beowulf” The author has a style where it keeps you up to see whats next and what would be beowulf’s response to what unferth said to him.
The next example will show that feuds can cause betrayal and can also cause people to get hurt. “You will wish that you were in a better plight then caught poaching on a neighbor's land” This text evidence from The Interlopers shows that silly feuds over lands and other things cause people to make threats and offend people. The character threatens his enemy by saying his men are going to hurt him or even
Emotion (pathos) is using feelings, desires or fears to influence readers. He does this by using a proof known as fear of pain: “If you don’t do things this way, you risk losing time, money, love, security, freedom, reputation, popularity, health, or beauty.” Whitman invokes the readers emotion in the first sentence when he says, “To say America today is verging on Nazism feels like scaremongering (Whitman para. 1)” This quote is playing on the fact that Nazism is scary, however it is not a unfathomable idea.

“This is How You Lose Her” a collection by Junot Diaz is one riddled with conflict, versatile and vulgar language, complex characters, honesty and heartbreak. Diaz’s complex characters and the conflicts they face make the stories emotional, the vulgar and versatile language make the collection humorous and appreciated, the honesty and the heartbreak make it real.

Shame-prone individuals are more likely to engage in blaming others, experience intense feelings of anger, express their anger in destructive ways and report awareness of their anger as resulting in negative long-term consequences for themselves and their relationship with others (Tangney, Stuewig, & Mashek, 2007). In Brene Brown’s (2006) shame resilience theory proposes that shame is a three-part construct containing psychological, social and cultural components: psychological relating to emotions, thoughts and behaviours; social relates to the interpersonal context tied to relationships and connections; and cultural points to meeting expectations within society (Brown, 2006). Interestingly, Brown’s (2006) grounded theory study of women and
Blaming God, blaming another person, blaming yourself. Hefling discusses why humans always mess things up which additionally takes some of the blame. Humans allow evil to occur in their lives by accepting that evil will always get the best of them in the end. Hefling also examines human habit, that can take the blame for their shortcomings.

She takes two issues and forms them into one powerful statement that provoked thought and truth. Her use of the words horrible and blood drunken evoke a kind of incarnate anger humans have towards things that are threatening to them, inducing an empathetic response on the listener’s part. For example, the issue of losing a child may not apply to everyone, but the concept of unnecessary death does apply to everyone. In addition, she points out the "same line of inconsistency" (Shaw) being used by anti-suffragists time and time again. This inconsistency is spoken of by Anna Howard Shaw in a very clear and factual manner, stating that the men had hardly established their new country "before they began to practice exactly the same sort of persecutions on others
Sherman Alexie’s Survival Equation and the Resilience of Native American Culture Sherman Alexie’s The Lone Ranger and Tonto Fistfight in Heaven portrays the hardships faced by Native Americans at the hands of the overpowering force of mainstream American culture. Alexie uses multiple perspectives in his book to convey the complexity of the situation on the reservation. However, his recurring themes such as survival, tradition, and underlying cultural ties connect the stories together as does the overarching message about the resilience of Native American people and their culture. With these consistent themes, the multiple perspectives found in his stories prove the validity of his cultural points due to their repetition. In his composite novel, Alexie reveals the resilience of Native American culture by breaking it down into a mathematical equation
The United States remains in the minority of nations in the world that still uses death as penalty for certain crimes. Capital punishment is seen by many as barbaric and against American values, while others see it as a very important tool in fighting violent pre-meditated murder. One of the supporters of the Death penalty was a man named Walter Berns (a professor of American constitutional law and political philosophy.)
