For this reason, it is easier for someone to merely make assumptions based on Art’s outward appearance and behavior than to put in the effort to foster a real relationship and become informed on his condition. Throughout the story, characters demonstrate this unwillingness to hear Art, whether it is Cassius Delamitri getting sick of Art’s friendly advances and tying him around a chair leg (Hill, pg. 68), or the narrator’s father belligerently misinterpreting Art’s contributions to their conversations as insults (Hill, pg. . 71).
Lastly, the two words the son and the man add to the complexity of the relationship. This shows that the man can’t picture himself being a father, especially after knowing he can’t meet the child’s expectation, but will always picture his son being a child in his eyes. In conclusion the author uses literary devices to add depth and emotion to the complex relationship between the two characters. He does this by changing the point of view throughout the poem from son to father. He uses a purposeful structure from present to future coming back to present to demonstrate with the complexity of the father's
Instead of letting this put up barriers in their friendship they use this to challenge each other which ends in them learning more about each other. But to others this friendship seemed odd. “They both sounded so childish, and I got a little angry when Davey Cantor started talking about “that snooty Danny Saunders”” (Page 149) In that moment Reuven school mates would not understand him being friends with someone like Danny but later on in the book they accepted it. Even
This shows that Gene’s subconscious will take over and say things that he thinks that other people will want to hear. This also shows that Gene isn 't good at telling people exactly what he wants to do and this doesn 't help him later on. We see that one of Gene’s struggles is to do what other people want and not what he does but when Gene does do what he wants to do then it doesn 't end well, while Finny on the other hand says exactly what he wants to say. An example of Finny’s weakness is, Finny has certain moralities that he lives by and his weakness is that he would never believe that one of his best friend’s broke one of his morals, we see this when Gene and Finny are talking they say, “‘I jounced the limb. I caused it’ [Gene said]... ‘Of course you didn’t’ [Finny said]... ‘Of course you didn’t you damn fool’” (70).
Talk to one or two “If it doesn’t CHALLENGE you, it won’t CHANGE you.” In this story, you will see how Stanley has changed. Stanley changes from shy to bold because of how Sachar describes him in the beginning and the end. In the beginning of the novel, Stanley is a very shy kid. He doesn’t want to get embarrassed “When he doesn’t let the boys see him writing his letter.” (Sachar 74). I think this shows great text evidence because he scared to show the boys about his letter.
The narrator in ‘The Black Cat’ seems to act like two people at once . The narrator starts his story by trying to tell his readers he is not crazy. He says, “Yet, mad am I not -- and very surely do I not dream (“The Black Cat”).” This is a good example of unreliable narrator, because only crazy people try really hard to make others believe they are not crazy. The narrator does not help his case when he admits to hurting the cat for fun. Also, when reading “ The Black Cat”, Poe will not keep the reader up-to-date with the natural world.

Cathey’s “My own little secret” story, which effectively makes an appeal to pathos that creates a sympathetic image to readers. Wolverton explains that Mr. Cathey didn’t read at his appropriate level and that he was reading books that were at a “First Grade, Level 1, Ages 6-7.” Also, having to read quietly so that none of his teammates wouldn’t hear him reading aloud (Wolverton, 117). Wolverton goal was to make the readers have some type of sympathy for Mr. Cathey. This strategy of using pathos helps Wolverton to persuade and entertain his readers and also helps to strengthen his argument at the end. In the article there was a rhetorical question Mr. Joseph Luckey, the University of Memphis’s director of athletic academic services, wondered how many of those students to let in.
To sum it up, stereotypes are almost always incorrect. Appearances don’t show a person’s actions or intentions. Without taking time to get to know someone, their true personality will not show. Also, who a person hangs out with, does not define who they are. For those reasons, stereotypes need to stop.
He walks in wanting to seem like a friend, not a business man. He also doesn’t tell her what the condition is. He grabs her interest and gets her genuinely concerned about it before he even tells her what it is. He even says that it is something they “are not prepared to give.” Which is definitely not true. Why would Campbell be in there if he wasn’t trying to persuade her?
