Also in the Treatment of Gertrude, hamlet accidently killed Polonius thinking it was the king spying on them in front of Gertrude, before Polonius dies he says “O, I am slain!”. Right after that Hamlet told his mother, Gertrude, that the new king killed his father, she didn’t believe and told him to be quiet that she couldn’t handle it. After that happened Hamlet sees the ghost of the king again, saying that “To speak to her, hamlet” (doc.
In The Rattler the speaker’s rhetorical strategy is to use pathos to make the audience feel sympathy for his/her actions and to also use logos to give good reasons for his/her actions.

Three days is all it took for a young woman to change her ways. The main character of the play A Doll’s House by Henrik Ibsen named Nora Helmer acts very childish. She lies to her husband Torvald, and her friends. Nora borrows money from her enemy Krogstad to save her husband’s life. She cheats society by taking out the lone herself rather than with a man like she is supposed to.
Blanche always lies about what is really going on in her life to escape from painful circumstances. When Blanche arrived at Stella’s house, she explained she left her job because, “…[she] was exhausted by all [she] had been through [her]—nerves broke”(pg. 11). Blanche had made up this story to cover up the embarrassing circumstance of kissing a student and to shelter her from the humiliation. Also, Blanche plays emotional games with men to get the attention she needs to feel good. For example, when Blanche sees the paper boy, she takes out a scarf to try and seduce him, quickly kisses him without waiting for consent, and rushes him on his way without a word from him, just to play with his emotions (pg. 88).

Nyasha is a passionate person and since it is self-evident to her that she should be able to have a fun night out with her friends, rebellion against a surely unjust punishment comes natural to her.

Rosemary Almond was a housewife that was abused by her husband, Derek Almond. Throughout the book we saw that she really loved her husband, but because of the stress that her husband was going through with the terrorist on the loose and the pressure from the leader he was mean and abusive towards her.
