Coach Boone began his speech with information his audience needed to know, “fifty thousand men died right here on this field, fightin’ the same fight that we're still fightin’ amongst ourselves today” (American Rhetoric). Coach Boone’s football team knew about the Gettysburg battle, but never connected it to a football game, knowing this came from how the boys reacted to the speech. Each boy on the team came to the realization that they were in the wrong, by Coach’s passionate appeal; which is what he was aiming for. Coach Boone used a pathos to appeal to his team’s emotion. “This green field right here was painted red, bubblin' with the blood of young boys, smoke and hot lead pourin' right through their bodies” (American Rhetoric).
He, too, is often at a disadvantage and uses his own wits and control of language to survive in various circumstances. In some ways he follows the principles of an “underdog” with his somewhat depressing current status. The readers are usually “rooting” for Holden due to the given background knowledge of this kid. They are concerned for him and want him to succeed no matter what he does. On the other hand, Holden approaches his representation of a trickster in a more subtle and innocent manner.
This is seen by the audience in his numerous collusions with defensive line coach Bill Yoast and players. Both verbally and physically abusive in practices or on the sideline, he commands perfection in exchange for unity in the form of extra practices at longer durations. Usually due to the players continuous self-segregating behavior in living and dining. Yet, his counterpart, coach Yoast is progressive but hesitant in his acceptance of Boone. Considering that he is the all-American coach with preexisting prejudices he has the ability to compromise.
After doing research and informing myself about this issue, I’ve came to a conclusion that I would allow my child to play football for three specific reasons. Football can be a stress reliever, can gain life experience, and it builds up character. First of all, football can result as a stress reliever for football players. This is because players can take any type of anger or stress and apply it during the game to forget about what they have on their mind. According to
We’ve all been cocky about something in our lives at some point, but being arrogant is a different story. Being cocky is when you’re overconfident, but arrogance is when you see yourself superior to everyone. In the short stories Raymond’s Run and A&P the authors examine arrogance, cockiness and contempt and how the main characters resolve conflict. Squeaky, the main character in Raymond’s Run, shows cockiness rather than arrogancy. However, the main character of A&P, Sammy, is arrogant because he thinks that everyone is below him and has a bad thing to say about everyone.
The angle with which the movie is delivered with allows for direct and indirect characterization that adds depth to the roles. The direct characterization is found where the audience forms opinions based on the appearances of characters that is delivered by the camera. The actions and dialogue of the characters are categorized as indirect characterization, due to the furthering of complexity to the personalities through mannerisms and speech habits. Dr. Omalu is indirectly characterized as a very neat, intellectual, and kind individual. He is hard-working and determined, as exhibited in his fight with the NFL to publicly reveal the results of his
The fight lead him to being bloodied and beaten up. Both kinds of violence had an effect on Holden though in different ways. The first example had a more long term effect on Holden, the story of the boy drove home Holden's idea about how hard it is to be truly yourself when you are always being pressured into conforming or becoming a phony, and the boy becomes a symbol of the struggle to Holden and perhaps fuel for his hatred of phonies and maturation. The other kind effected Holden in the short term but still caused him to make rash actions shortly after the fight. Though most of the damage done to Holden was external pain and didn't have a totally lasting effect on his
The author uses tactile, visual and auditory imagery to enhance to the audience that preparation is key. “Body calmed.” This evidence proves to be tactile imagery because he used calmed as a sense of touch towards his body to give a visual of how it felt if he was touched. It would be as if you touched him and he felt relaxed and not tensed. The author uses this imagery because he wants the reader to understand and feel what he felt during his play and what he learned from practice “I drove into his hips with a gratifying CRACK!”. This evidence proves that the author has hit his opponent so bad that you can hear a cracking noise to emphasize that he has made a perfect tackle.
The bullies in the film are known as football players who were white and ripped at the beginning of the film. In the end, it leads to Bobby discovering his hidden talent. His talent is that he’s incredibly good at tackling. When Bobby tackles someone he imagines that it is somebody else’s face on his opponent. The faces are of the people who have been a bully to him throughout life.
Shown in the first quote, Holden Caulfield’s paranoia is expressed by his ability to “feel” exactly who was around him. Due to Holden being able to sense who was near him, readers view insight to his edgy behavior caused by the constant paranoia. To continue, in the second of the above quotes, Caulfield shows his nervousness and paranoia to the reader. When Mr. Antolini gave a reassuring pat on the head to a sleeping Holden, he was met with utmost rejection of the act by Caulfield. This rejection shows Holden Caulfield to be more aware of what is happening, even though he may have misinterpreted the action done.
