For example, some readers may view his story-telling and reminiscing as a sign of self-centeredness. While Traub’s personal tales bring intense emotion to the article, some may feel that it lacks some credibility due to the absence of outside opinion. As a result, this can weaken the ethos aspect of the persuasive argument. Another way that Traub’s heavy reliance on pathos can weaken his argument deals with the audience that he is speaking to. Because Traub often refers to sweet memories that involve old newspaper comic strips, he is specifically pleasing an audience that has spent some time of their life reading them.
Introduction In this essay I will discuss the impact XX Century modernism had on animation. I will also analyse its importance and relevance as a way of understanding its principals and origins. Modernism is usually confused as a form of art which ‘is modern’ with it’s own set of principals and a unique ways of assessing art. Everyone has their on opinion on the subject but one thing is certain, art was stagnating and in need of something new . The modernism movement went from the late 19th century over to the 1960’s.
Comedian Jerry Seinfeld gave Richard Pryor the title as, "the Picasso of comedy and considers him to be the heart and soul of comedy." This archive was created by Scott Saul the editor and publisher of Richard Pryor 's Peoria compiled information from his biography called Becoming Richard Pryor. The archive is a jump into societies technological norms, a challenge to expose the work of a biography for the digital age. This rhetorical analysis of Richard Pryor 's Peoria archive is important because it preserves artifacts, or in many instances, the visual pieces, that reconstruct the worlds view of Richard Pryor 's childhood and adolescence. One critical question that Hollywood historians, comedy fans, and academic researchers commonly ask is how the materials within the archive offer a snapshot of Richard Pryor 's life and what items in the archive provide the most significant stories?
While analyzing Disney stories may not appear beneficial, it does provide a somewhat accurate account of historical perceptions from 1937 to present day . The first question to analyze is which came first the chicken or the egg; is it society that influences Disney’s presentation or is it Disney’s ideals that ultimately influence society or are both in effect. I plan to answer this conundrum by analyzing the values, professions, and family structure in each decade and the decades surrounding that in question, while looking for patterns with the corresponding Disney characters. If the societal changes are in line or prior to the character changes then society is likely influencing Disney, whereas if the social changes are after the character and story developments then Disney may be influencing society. Next, I might look into motherhood in Disney movies and its relevance to family values and structure in our society.
John steinbeck touches base on the American Dream when he wrote Of Mice and Men. There are many ways that John Steinbeck demonstrates how both George and Lennie have an American Dream. “With us it ain’t like that. We got a future” is an example of how the boys have that dream of having better things to come for them(Steinbeck 15). Steinbeck also uses motifs to show that the American Dream is within the book.
An example of this is “That all the world is a stage is hardly an unfamiliar thought. But that all the world is a TV situation comedy has come as quite a surprise—except to Aldous Huxley. We must, in any case, make no mistake about it. Television is not merely an entertainment medium. It is a philosophy of discourse, every bit as capable of altering a culture as was the printing press.” (p. 452) This helps the audience to see that just as described in A Brave New World American’s are allowing their everyday lives to become amusements that have no substance in reality.
John Steinbeck created many interesting characters in his novel Of Mice and Men. Curley's Wife, one of the main characters, is an example of the American Dreamer architype. This is demonstrated by connections to the 21st Century, ideas and events in that time period, and comparing another characters architype. I am writing about the archetype American Dreamer. An American Dreamer is someone who thinks that everyone should have a chance to succeed and achieve their goals with hard work.
The Impact of Humor As Leo Rosten, an American humorist and author states, “Humor is the affectionate communication of insight” Humor is an intelligent way to enforce an argument to your audience. With the employment of humor, the authors are able to persuade their readers into understanding, and sometimes agreeing with their opinions. Humor allows authors to have the insight about their topic thus, giving the author credibility and zealousness. In Laura Fraser's essay, “Why I Stopped Being a Vegetarian”, she employs the element of humor to strengthen her essay in a myriad of ways. Fraser's utilization of humor works to keep the reader or the audience engaged, makes their work memorable, and provides comic relief which overall, greatly contributes to her arguments for and against vegetarianism.
If we preserve certain elements like the musical scores and dialogues, we are allowing certain discussions to be reopened furthering the essence of American culture. This continual variety of perspectives and arguments is a very characteristic feature of USA culture that can be exploited. Not only are we enhancing our public to act “American”, but they will be exploring an opera considered by critics an American symbol . If we portray a more accurate reality of the opera, while keeping the key controversies, the opera will have both American folklore and will enhance American attitudes. Our Porgy and Bess could become a symbol of the unification of races while allowing the use of freedom of speech to broaden the perspectives of Americans.
In his book Shadow of a Mouse: Performance, Belief, and World-Making in Animation, Donald Crafton investigates what “performance” in animation is. Brad Bird, known for The Incredibles (2004) and Ratatouille (2007), argues that “animated films are performances” because the “animated characters are actors who may convey strong emotions” and “the audience responds emotionally to the acting”. In result, the “emotions [that] originate with the animators” make them, the animators, “real” performers (16). Crafton agrees to an extent. The extent to which, animated films are “a conditional performance, the condition being that the film will be completed and projected to its viewers” (17).
There are many different levels of humor ranging from niche humor to highly sophisticated humor to crude and brash humor. Even thought some forms of humor are more revered than others, all forms of humor, through any type of medium, can be informative. The creators of South Park, a popular yet controversial cartoon, Matt Stone and Trey Parker made a big impact on the public 's views of Tourette Syndrome. Many Americans were unaware of the disorder which is known for causing verbal or physical tics. After the episode aired, awareness dramatically increased for Tourette Syndrome.

Students will compare and contrast the two stories and have a group discussion about social norms, personal beliefs and numerous other underlying themes and factors in both stories. Students will explore the work of Normal Rockwell, the idea of utopia and how he expresses this in his work. They will then create their own utopia and a visual representation of it.

Cartoons can be used in different ways. People can chose to use cartoons ranging anywhere from comedy to advertisements. The amount of power an image holds can change the way a person thinks. Rob Rogers is a cartoonist for the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. Rogers has recently drawn a cartoon that represents the type of state the country is under.
For instance, I agree that the author Robert Crumb showed his audience that America really did change over time, but on the other hand not ALL of America looks like the city he depicted. With that in mind, I think the author is trying to reach an undecided audience, which makes us neutral. We cannot make up our mind, because America
Have your traditions changed over the last few decades with all the changes in pop culture? Can you give me a few examples of some of these representations that stand out to you (films, TV shows, etc.)? Overall, do you think Native American representation has improved over time? “The study followed a realist ethnography form of ethnographic design where the researcher reports on what is observed or heard from participants and produces participant views through edited quotations” (Hart,
