In this paper the short story by Olaudah Equiano Life of Olaudah Equiano and The Journal of Christopher Columbus by Christopher Columbus will be compared. I will go over various points such as descriptive details, emotional appeal, and word choice to find what the author's purpose is in these two different narratives. First I will analyze emotional appeal. The two narratives have different cover pictures, while these are not words they do give impressions. While Equiano's narrative shows the terrible conditions that he and his fellow Africans had to endure on the ship, Columbus’s journal has a very different cover.
Dom Casmurro is narrated in the first person narrative by the self-proclaimed protagonist Bento, nicknamed Dom Casmurro for his stubborn nature. The story is told solely from his perspective and therefore automatically creates a biased view of the events that come to pass in the novel. The flawed narrator (Bento) writes the story from his point of view completely muting out the opinions and speech that do not directly support his case in order to rally sympathy and build trust between himself and the reader. Despite the fact that all we have to believe is Bento’s thoughts and what he writes down, because of Machado’s writing technique we are able to see what Bento tries to do, which is to play the victim in the story. Driven by jealousy and
Kids playing in the green backyard as a father cooks steaks on the barbecue, people enjoying a day at the beach, and friends drinking ice cold glass bottles of Coca-Cola at a soda bar. These are the images we think of when we are asked to describe the type of lifestyle that many immigrants thought America would provide them with when they arrived in the United States. Coca-Cola’s glass cup has long been an icon of the United States, representing the promise of an untroubled and blissful lifestyle for the growing middle class, a promise which had encouraged many to come to the United States in search of a better life. In the 1950s, the glass Coca-Cola cup had become the well-known icon of the carefree lifestyles of Americans themselves, representing how joyous and relaxed life in the United States was. The 1950s was a time of no worries, where almost everyone could achieve a comfortable lifestyle and have the ability to afford caring for a family, and Coca-Cola sought to use this idea to
To begin, Lupe Flasco writes, “They treat you like a slave” to compare ending things to keep going. The same ideas are presented in the lyrics “That you struggling and survivin that you gonna preserve yeah.” Thirdly, “So no matter what you have been through/ No matter what you into/ No matter what you see when you look through your window/Brown
Aimed at the young boys of Italy, Collodi’s work presents Pinocchio with the same struggles as these Italian boys so that they could connect with his character easily. Poverty was a key part of these struggles and thus, is essential to Collodi’s story. Collodi’s Pinocchio immerges from complete destitution with hard and honest work and by defeating greed. Poverty plays a key role in this representation. Showing his character rising from destitution helps Collodi convey an ideal of a hardworking and honest man upon the young boys of Italy.
Un paseo por el valle means a walk through a valley, that what they were doing with their music they were walking us through a musical journey. It was such an amazing piece to end the concert with. My experience with Cuatro para Tango was amazing experience it was moving and passionate. It cools to see the way they played with show much love for their music and their culture.

The poem that Polanco wote is about being unique and yourself is a good thing. One of the literary devices that Polanco uses is alliteration. For example in polanco’s poem is in line number eight, “Surface of stone”. This means doing the impossible for a change of freedom. Being yourself requires strength.
Ionesco put his focus on the tragedy of language. In fact he bothers the audience with the disintegration of language, which is one of his main targets of this play. All over The Bald Soprano can be analyzed as a parody where the author mocks about the universal bourgeoisie which, to reveal a dehumanized mankind which became spiritually seen empty. Therefore Ionesco used the language as an important implement to highlight this dehumanization. In concrete the language of the Smiths and Martins is indeed old fashioned and dry adding slogans and a lot of simple expressions.
In one of his Essays, “Decaf Poopacino”, he is making fun of the fact that Americans order the craziest drinks when at coffee shops. The point of this essay is to express that people, like him that want a simple coffee, are tired of waiting in line while the baristas make crazy drinks that serve no purpose. The use of hyperboles help get his point across. For example he says, “It is inhumane, in my opinion, to force people who have a genuine medical need for coffee to wait in line behind people who apparently view it as some kind of recreational activity.” As we know, nobody will die from a lack of coffee, but many people do rely on it heavily, so this exaggeration helps the readers relate. Although he is making fun of the people that drink the fancy drinks, he is relating to the people that just want a plain old coffee.
