After living his whole life free and unrestrained by anyone or anything, he found himself confined and threatened in a way he could never have imagined” (55). Stevenson could have said this in many ways. One being, “Walter told me those week had left him devastated and he found himself confined in ways he could never have imagined.” However, he decided to write it in a way where readers could insert themselves into the situation and feel for his client. Stevenson’s use of pathos is overall effective and helps him to prove his points about the injustice justice
He wears a thick mask of lies throughout the story, hiding his past, changing his name, suppressing his emotions, and even adapting his word choice. Gatsby represents the American Dream throughout the story, he works hard towards rewarding achievements but is let down, because others would rather have money, power, and society’s approval. Jay Gatsby grew up in a poor family from North Dakota. As a farm child he worked hard and followed the American dream. He wanted to escape the poor farm life and make a name for himself.
The director wants the audience to question whether or not Edward Bloom is just spitting lies or if it's the truth. Will, the son, is the fool searching for the bitter truth between the lies his father has shown him through a rose colored lens. The next example of logos within the movie is when the producers have Jenny ask Edward to come back to Specter. This was because it foreshadows his return to Specter later in life to help the city become what it once was. Showing the great town of specter in shambles was to evoke a feeling that Edward Bloom is selfless in giving his money to help save the town he enjoyed so much.

Walter wants to be free from the family’s low income lifestyle, and becoming rich is Walter’s extrinsic motivation to live. Mama said to Walter, “Son-how come you talk so much ‘bout money?” Walter responded with immense passion, “Because it is life, Mama!” Walter looks at life, and like a bride sees through her wedding vail, Walter sees through money lenses. He sees his father’s money as a possibility in a world that revolves around a minimal supply of money. He feels that if he cannot achieve greatness and get his family out of the slums of Chicago, then he has failed at everything. It not only concerns his family that he sees his human worth out of money, but it worries them because they are not able to trust him to be responsible and just when making decisions.
Yes, Walter was stolen from when given 6,500 dollars, but he had no clue that he was going to get robbed. The white neighborhood could have easily ripped off and stole money from Mama. Walter is truly defeated from this robbery. His vision was focused on providing a better income for his family through opening up the liquor store. Aretha Franklin understands Walter’s feelings when she sings, “I ain 't gonna do you wrong while you 're gone,” in her song “Respect.” Walter does not intend to harm the families’ lives by taking charge of the money to open up a small business.
Hearst, Welles, Kane... deconstructed... ménage a`trois Citizen Kane is considered by filmmakers and critics to be the greatest film of all time. Part of this lay in a young genius director using the means of production against one of America’s most wealthy media magnates, William Hearst.

The film tells Kane 's story; a life full of emptiness, rage and ambition. Kane is a combination of Hearst and Welles’s lives portraying their similarities

In turn, Willy makes sure that Linda has the money to pay said bills with the sales he does on his job, which become increasingly more and more difficult. The sales become more difficult because no one takes Willy seriously, instead they mock and laugh at him, and it also doesn’t help that his mind wanders off at the worst of time, like when he is driving.

The American Dream isn’t Possible Statistically, 57% of America’s population think that they have achieved their American Dream when thinking about their financial situations. That’s only a little over half of the American population. That must mean the rest are either not mature enough or haven’t achieved their version of the American Dream. Sometimes they are faced with financial obstacles that prevent them from moving forward towards their dream, they may be prevented by the social class that they are born into, or they will never achieve their American Dream because it is ever-changing and they always desire more.
