Anyway, the weapons were paid by Triumvirate Holdings.’” (Riordan 197). The dialogue explicitly explains about the Triumvirate Holdings’ involvement in the second war and gives background information to one of the problems in the second war, the civil war between Roman and Greek demigods. This not only helps Meg, but also, the reader’s understanding because those who have not read the previous books will get the plot twist and
He turns a trite non-fiction story of robbery gone wrong into a narrative-style exposition by making his attitude towards the subject evident throughout. He does so by using descriptive details, for example, to create images of the depth of the characters in the reader 's mind. Additionally, through his clever use of words, Capote expresses his feelings of sympathy for Perry and his bitter distaste for Perry 's punishment which Dick essentially led him into. Aside from his word use, the way the author structures his sentences to transmit his attitude towards the events of Holcomb, Kansas and the people involved. He then takes this further by applying a specific structure to the whole book, including certain events out of order to support his tone throughout.

Chavez said “Thus, demonstrations and marches, strikes and boycotts are not only weapons against the growers, but our way of avoiding senseless violence that brings no honor to any class or community. The boycott, as Gandhi taught, is the most nearly perfect instruments of nonviolent change, allowing masses of people to participate actively in a cause.” (prompt) One interesting point he made was about honor. Cesar believed that violent acts during a time of resistance were senseless and brought no honor upon any one person involved in the aforementioned acts, and that they could be avoided by participating in nonviolent means such as boycotting, marches, and
In RFk's speech he goes out on the back of a truck and tries to calm down the crowd after just finding out that MLK had been murdered. His motivation was in using the speech to restore the faith and peace in America, since he knew racial tensions were high and now even higher. Robert states “But we have to make an effort in the United States, we have to make an effort to understand, to get beyond and go beyond these rather difficult times” (kennedy).He said this to show to the people that even though
Following the assassination of Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Robert F. Kennedy, a New York senator at the time, delivered a speech to the Cleveland City Club, lamenting the prejudice and hatred that killed Dr. King. In his speech, Kennedy appeals to ethos, utilizes metaphors, and employs 3rd person point of view to advance his purpose of how American society fosters prejudice and how, as a nation, they must change their ways to see any significant changes. Ethos plays a unique role in The Mindless “Menace of Violence”. Although it is prevalent in the essay, it’s most important components are never outrightly stated; rather it is understood through background knowledge and analysis. If the Kennedy name were to call to mind anyone in
When they both decide to go against the government, it is solely because both think that government prevents the Transcendentalist lifestyle. This lifestyle, means that one is exempt from taxes or any other enforced laws and regulations, as a Transcendentalist disagrees with the very core of the state. So, under the guise of moral responsibility, civil disobedience is a way to act for their own personal gain. McCandless has a distaste for government, having strong views on various politicians, many of which he dislikes. His political leanings are reminiscent of Thoreau’s essay ‘On Duty of Civil Disobedience’, and can be summed up with, “ ‘I heartily accept the motto - ‘That
Journalist and author, Dave Cullen, in his book, Columbine, redefines how his readers understand the Columbine tragedy. His purpose is to illustrate the misconceptions Americans have of the shooting by explaining how these misconceptions came about and became rooted in Americans’ minds, although they were so unbelievably wrong. Cullen creates a blunt tone in order to get straight to the facts to show who Eric really was. Through his use of rhetorical devices in this passage, Cullen unravels that Eric was not a bullied outcast like so many believe, but a psychopath. The passage opens with an examination of Eric’s thoughts in the months before Columbine happened, which can be viewed from numerous passages Eric left behind in his journals.
Could a condition such as dyslexia be an advantage? That is the question that echoes to the soul of the theory of desirable difficulty. We have accepted the paradigm that those who experience abnormally large amounts of difficulty in life are less likely to succeed. We have accepted this notion, because it makes logical sense. However, we are beginning to see the birth of a rebuttal to conventional wisdom.
When Brutus was trying to justify the fact that he killed Caesar, he says “Not that I loved Caesar less, but I loved Rome more”(117,23-24). This quote is an example of logos because he is using a more logical responce to the question of why he killed Caesar. As Brutus is telling this to people he is standing over them, making them feel less important. While Antony was giving his speech, he was standing down with the crowd walking around in the group, making him seem more trustable and relatable then Brutus was. Another example of him using logos in his speech is when he is constantly repaeting that Caesar “was ambitious”(117,28).
