Staples opens up the essay with an experience of his. He says “My first victim was a woman- white, well dressed, probably in her early twenties.” He then goes on to explain when he was walking at night in Chicago that same young woman ran away from him.

This quote means Amir is willing to anything to see Sohrab’s smile again. The smile does not mean much, but it could lead to something more. Through Amir’s experiences in dealing with Hassan’s rape, the Taliban overtaking Afghanistan, and Amir’s life with Sohrab, Hosseini was able to exemplify the theme of sins and redemption.

This is an effective method because gives the reader an idea of what to expect when reading that part of the passage. In addition, it allows the reader to look for key reasoning when reading the section. “Adrift in a Moral Sea” is an example of one of the subtitle in the passage.

Victor Villanueva provides a very good example of how adding our memory of experiences into writing can be beneficial in his article, “Memoria is a friend of ours: On the Discourse of Color” Villanueva draws from his own personal experience throughout his whole article, and claims “The connections between narratives by people of color and the need to reclaim a memory, memory of an identity in formation and constant reformation, the need to reclaim a memory of an identity as formed through the generations…Memory simply cannot be adequately portrayed in the convectional

One of the major rhetorical strategies scrutinized when analyzing an article is ethos. Ethos are the things that make the author seem credible or trustworthy.

Berlow’s article is lacking in incorporating emotion, which led to it as being not as strong of an article as it could
