William McEwen Professor Weatheril English 121.4 September 13, 2016 Rhetorical Analysis “Reasons are bullshit”(Roth 41), author Bernard Roth states in his book The Achievement Habit. Chapter two which is based on reasons and the BS behind them gives great detail of what the mind truly thinks, but just doesn't fully interpret. Roth covers this topic with lots of personal beliefs and evidence. Roth touches on all the topics of rhetorical appeals throughout the entire second chapter, in an efficient, but very unusual way. Roth likes to speak directly to the soul and heart of the reader, using real life examples, along with personal evidence.
Unhappy Relationships Relationships are complicated. “The Great Gatsby”, where people leave each other, cheat on each other, and they lie and then they die, exemplifies this idea. Some do stay together throughout the book but in the end its not what they wanted. Fitzgeralds theme of unhappy relationships in The Great Gatsby is shped by Gatsby, Diasy, and Tom in order to convey the idea that no one ended up together happy because of everyone interfering with everyone elses relationships. Gatsby chases his dream of being with Daisy, but it was never fullfilled.
Another factor is that her old husband was healing Dimmsdale, her ‘illegitimate’ lover. Hester and her daughter Pearl lived with mistrust, the townspeople were disgusted by her, and would never trust her even after her sentence was lifted. Relationships can stand on the grounds of mistrust and isolation, but they may never thrive on it due to the fact of trust and companionship being the key factors in a relationship. This was shown throughout both The Scarlett Letter and Ethan Frome in a variety of ways, including the lack of true companionship in both novels and also the complete lack of trust held by some characters in both
Gatsby is arguing with Tom and says, “‘She never loved you, do you hear?’ he cried. ‘She only married you because I was poor and she was tired of waiting for me. It was a terrible mistake, but in her heart she never loved anyone except me!’ ”(130). Gatsby is trying to make Tom believe Daisy never loved him so Tom will back off and let Daisy go. Tom still tries to convince Daisy he loves her more than Gatsby does, even though he cheats on Daisy several
This roots back to the death of his brother and his fear of getting close enough to someone that he is vulnerable to being hurt. Holden despises interaction so intensely that he even says “I thought what I’d do was, I’d pretend I was one of those deaf mutes. That way I wouldn’t have to have any of those goddam stupid useless conversations with anybody” (218). This illustrates just how far he was willing to go to avoid interaction, because he truly thinks that it is pointless. Throughout the novel the reader is exposed to Holden’s damaged mind and personality.
In the novel, The Great Gatsby, by F. Scott Fitzgerald, I dislike Daisy more than Tom. I dislike Daisy more than Tom because she backed out on leaving Tom and going to live with Gatsby. Gatsby was trying to control Daisy because Daisy was getting discouraged, she says “ ‘Please, Tom! I can 't stand this anymore.’ Her frightened eyes told that whatever intentions whatever courage she had had, were definitely gone.” After all the arguing, at the end she turns to Tom so the whole situation can be over. She fails Gatsby and doesn 't do the one thing she had to do to make Gatsby happy.
The relationship quickly switches stages unexpectedly to the deterioration stage. This stage is “characterized by a weakening of the bonds… you view the future with your partner more negatively,” (DeVito 227). This occurs when Gatsby begins pressuring Daisy into leaving Tom. This scares Daisy and causes the bonds between the two to weaken because she is quickly reminded by Tom about the reasons she loves him. This is especially shown in this scene when Daisy says, “Even alone I can’t say I never loved Tom,” (Fitzgerald 133).
We see that Kat has started to cry as she thinks the one man that is willing to marry her is not going through with it. This is a side of Kat that we haven’t seen until now and it is a surprising emotion at that. When Petruchio arrives dressed in clothing not suited for the wedding we actually see Kat begging him to change the clothes that he is wearing and put on a nice outfit for the wedding. Kat is totally embarrassed in this scene and that’s what Petruchio was trying to do. When Petruchio and Kat get to his house he starts to starve her and keep her form sleeping.
Daisy struggles to lose herself because she 's just letting the men argue in her face. She just sits and looks at them going back and forth like she has no say in who she really loves and what she really wants to do. Daisy is losing herself here because she isn 't saying one word to defend herself. Another example to show that Daisy is losing herself is a little after Gatsby and her husband Nick argument they had before, they start going back and forth about who daisy is really in love with and says to Nick “ I love you now isn 't
Soon she is fired and thrown out of the home because Elizabeth (John’s wife) has suspicion of her and John having an affair with each other. John and his wife stay together and try to fix things but she is still angered. John is terrified for people to find out about his affair because he does not want to be jailed. In the play John yells to Elizabeth, “No more! I should have roared you down when first you told me of your suspicion.
Daisy cries because the man who once looked at her like she was a person and indispensable is now trying to buy her, objectifying her once more in a way she never expected him to. Daisy loves the beauty of the shirts but hates what they mean for her. She has exhausted her ability to rebel against a world that expects her to be demeaned in this way, and cannot articulate her feelings. She justifies her tears with the values of materialism that have been forced upon her, seeing how she is treated as an object herself. The objectification of Daisy is complete when Gatsby tells Nick, “Her voice is full of money,” (127) towards the end of the novel.
When he provided a piece of history that limited his path to continue his novel, he started to question the evidence and answered the question himself from his own common sense. For instance, Demos brought up a question “ Had John exploited his position (as host) to lord it over the visitors?” right after he attached a piece of letter from Stephen Williams to Kellogg regarding the problem between John and the visitors. At the same time, he answered the question directly saying that the
The thing she does the most will lead to her death. She provokes Lennie which was a terrible thing to do because he is not the brightest person in the world. She taunts him to pet her hair which Lennie likes soft things. She does not know what he is capable of. So she freaks out and he hold son when she is telling him to let go.
While Tom gloats in the background, she explains woefully to Gatsby, "Oh, you want too much… I love you now—isn 't that enough? I can 't help what 's past… I did love [Tom] once—but I loved you too" (132). She is in tears at this point and breaks down. She feels he "want[s] too much." He won 't accept her choosing him over Tom, he expects her to take back her love too, and Daisy is unable to.
