Cortes himself told people back in Spain that Montezuma didn’t attack his men due to him being Quetzalcoatl born in human form. This was part of Cortes’s attempt to justify his attack on the people of Tenochtitlan. If Montezuma thought at any point that Cortes was a god, he would have quickly realized Cortes didn’t speak the language or know anything a god would know. Another theory centers around Montezuma being scared of Cortes when the news reached him of the strange ships and people. In reality, Montezuma was cocky, confident, and calculating.
Rhetorical analysis is an investigation into how someone uses his/her critical reading skills to analyze text. The objective of the rhetorical analysis is the study of how the author writes, instead of what the author wrote. At that point, we need to examine the method that the author uses to attain his goal.

The sun god was also the patron god of the Aztecs and the Aztec capital, Tenochtitlan, was built to honour Huitzilopochtli. The most famous of all Aztec rituals was the human sacrifice and most of the hearts were offered to Huitzilopochtli to make sure he kept humans alive by continuing his journey through the sky as the Sun. Huitzilopochtli was the most important deity of the Aztecs and was worshipped by over a million people during the peak of the Aztec Empire. Huitzilopochtli was the God of the Sun and War.
He doesn’t even mention other soldiers that aided in this conquest. Lastly, Cortez venerates the Aztecs as a people that are on the same cultural and societal par as the Spanish, as their physical civilization was explicated as magnificent. By molding the Aztecs this way, Cortez did not only level Spanish prestige with that of the Aztecs, but also created an enemy that was adversarial, exponentially elevates the prestige of Cortez himself. Instead of promulgating Spanish identity, Cortez focuses on proliferating the myth of himself to gain personal

Historical criticism strives to cognize a literary work by examining the social, cultural, and intellectual context that essentially includes the artist’s biography and milieu. Historical critics are more concerned with guiding readers through the use of identical connotation rather than analyzing the work’s literary significance. (Brizee and Tompkins). The journey of a historical reading begins with the assessment of how the meaning of a text has altered over time. In many cases, when the historical context of a text is not fully comprehended, the work literature cannot be accurately interpreted.
Context plays an important part within a person’s society. This is integral when investigating other texts and their effects on a person’s understanding due to context, forming textual background and values.

Moreover, while reading and theorizing from testimonial narratives, as Gugelberger and Kearney discuss that “to doubt referentiality in testimonials would be an irresponsible luxury, given the urgency of the call to action” (11). Similarly, the authors of this genre look to the future, effectively inspiring change in empathetic readers. There are, nonetheless, challenges when using testimonial literature in an academic setting. For instance, questioning the concept of literature thus leads to debates within academic settings relating to the literary canon and to traditional Western scholastics. Regardless of the possible benefits and challenges of testimonial literature, it is powerful in its ability to disrupt the mainstream white Western literary
As a result of situational differences in every research, social and cultural contexts would vary. On top of that, the provision of some contextual description of the research would lower the risks of the readers misinterpreting the study and consequently, the results. Thus, contextualization is the key to revealing the various context in which a particular research lies in. This is important in the development of the psychology of leadership research and theory building because the setting of the research could be different, and hence possibly resulting in different sets of results altogether. For instance, the trait perspective in leadership research could either be done in a lab setting or in a workplace setting, both of which would have observed different implications on the results.
The writing context requires writers to have a sense of reader’s who experts a specific piece of writing. Level of vocabularies, punctuation, and where evidence is found in case there is one.
