Rhetorical devices in writing often can make or break an author’s work. In Barbara Jordan’s autobiography Becoming Educated she uses a wide selection of strong rhetorical strategies that further prove her point, but two in particular reinforce the story. The perspective she gives to her story and her experience draw the reader in and make the work seem more personal. At the same time that her work reads as a casual conversation, her professional diction strengthens her character. Obviously, an autobiography will use perspective in the text.
In the memoir “I Am Malala” by Christina Lamb and Malala Yousafzai, the authors elaborate the miserable experiences that Malala faced and how she kept fighting for women’s education. This memoir relates to the article “Do Our Kids Get Off Too Easy?” by Alfie Kohn, because of how the purpose of this article is to tell us, readers, that children are becoming inadequate. The memoir “I Am Malala” by Christina Lamb and Malala Yousafzai, Malala is fighting for women’s education. Malala fights the Taliban by giving speeches and influencing others. In chapter 1, page 19, Malala said: “I started writing my own speeches and changing the way I delivered them, from my heart rather than from a sheet of paper”.
Asking questions has made my close reading improve. Ellen Raskin helped me understand that it is important to have both high and low questions. Ellen Raskin uses quantities of figurative devices. On a different note, this is one of the main reasons why I like this book so much. Subsequently, one of the main crafts the author uses is figurative language.
In expositions, writers usually tend to focus on certain techniques to not only enhance their writing, but also make their audience believe in whatever they are writing. These age old techniques have been used for so long for one common goal, to create clear messages from their writing that the audience are able to connect with. When their is a feeling of understanding of what the writer is attempting to portray, it makes it far easier to obtain a deeper knowledge. In Hope Edelman’s essay, The Myth of Co-Parenting: How it Was Supposed to Be. How it was, she doesn’t fall short on exemplifying these certain techniques through the act of making her audience feel sympathetic.
I paragraph three, Morris lists our many instances that outline people’s excessive desire for things. These examples that author uses can immediately connect with the audience; the audience can identify the things that they have done themselves. This evokes them to think that maybe there is a problem with their passion for collecting things. At this point, Morris further convinces the audience with another example/ Morris points out how her friend manages to keep “a spotless house and a soul serene” just by giving away things that she does not “imperatively need”. This particular instance shows the readers that by being free of the control of physical objects, they can easily lead a much simpler life.
The author’s argument places an emphasis reason, but there is an emphasis placed on emotion as well. The author placed an emphasis on his children's need to grow up, but also on how it hurts to see them leave. The main argument about parenting in The
Social stigmas and stereotypes are built up through the many forms of media outlet and depict a generalization of certain people. Gillian Flynn’s Gone Girl tears down many of these stigmas and stereotypes through her unique and dynamic characters. The main character of the novel, Amy Sullivan highlights deviancy through her dynamic actions with her split personality of the cool girl façade and her genuine vengeful character. Amy is deviant even in her cool girl guise at the beginning of the novel. While Amy’s “performance” of cool girl was made for the public to sympathize with, cool girl contained some aspects that were deviant (Petersen, par.9).
This imagery, like the illustration, appeals the listener's emotions as it gives them an inside look on what it is like to be a child working under these conditions. In conclusion, Florence Kelley used many rhetorical strategies in order to call her audience to arms against child labor laws. She accuses the laws of being unjust and labels the children prisoners. In the last two paragraphs, Kelley refers to her cause as the "freeing of the children." She believed the children were robbed of their basic rights and freedoms by labor laws and used strategies such as pathos, parallelism, and illustration to convince her audience to help her "free the
“Cultural Baggage” by Barbara Ehrenreich explains the author’s views on traditional values that come from family ancestry. Ehrenreich’s motivation to write about this subject came from the way she was raised and challenged. She grew up finding new things to try and not to succumb to the mindset of accepting something because it’s always been that way. Ehrenreich’s father said in the essay, ‘“think for yourself’ and ‘always ask why’” (Ehrenreich, 04 Apr. 1992).
