Archer opens her essay with the description of the “grinning man” to describe the appearance of the homeless man and how he carries himself. This also is a good attention grabber from the beginning and keeps the reader's attention. Also this can lead the reader to having an idea of the character. She mention "baggy trousers", "one missing sleeve", and "buttonless shirt." The first running from 1 through 6 Ascher was very descriptive with what was happening and kept it in third person perspective.
Minorities have been repressed for many years all over the world. They were treated as inferior and possibly will be for many years to come. There’s Hispanics, Native Americans, African Americans, Asian, and Indians and many more. Women have been repressed for far longer and continue to be treated as inferior because of how women have been raised believing they must do what men want them to. Due to this females are treated differently from males whether it’s a colored female or white females, women are treated as lesser beings to men.
In Florence Kelley’s heart wrenching call for awareness of child labor she uses quite a few rhetorical devices. An anaphora is the most recognizable as she’s trying to nail in how she would could be helping the children. Pathos is another of her persuasion methods used in her tone. Kelley also uses a fair amount of imagery throughout the passage. First and foremost, Kelley’s use of an anaphora is what really pulls the audience’s attention.
Margeret Thatcher, former prime minister of Great Britain in 2004, delivered a eulogy at Ronald Reagan's funeral to the American people in honor of him. Thatcher uses anaphoras as well as repetition in order to emphasize the importance of Ronald Reagan and his accolades. Thatcher uses an anaphora in the first paragraph. She states: “We have lost a great president, a great American, and a great man, and I have lost a dear friend.” The repetition of the word “great” emphasizes Reagan's great presidency and even more importantly, great character.
During the 1980s, space exploration was a popular topic to watch, listen to, and learn about in American life. NASA had already sent a lot of missions to space, all reaching new milestones and increasing interest in space exploration. The Challenger, however, had a different mission than the rest. It was going to carry the first teacher, Christa McAuliffe, into space where she would teach two lessons. There were six other men and women on board the Challenger.
Christy Wampole identifies the primary reason she feels modern young people adopt an “ironic” persona as the lack of culture the generation has to offer. As she describes her reasons for feeling this way, her statements could be classified as a claim of value, and in my opinion, it is not very convincing. I do agree with some of her points, and her piece is definitely thought-provoking, however, she attempts to prove her opinions based on judgements because of her own belief system. To Wampole, the young generation should not dress hipster, because it is not a true expression of who they are, but instead, it is an ironic way of life. To Wampole, all of the forms of art that are being “imitated” is just a repeated version of generations before, and in
Gender stereotypes have been around for hundreds of years and still are today. The stereotypes for women are strict in regards to jobs and homelife, behavior, and even attire. They keep a firm hold on women 's daily life, so whenever women get the opportunity for power, they will take it. Ken Kesey’s novel, One Flew Over the Cuckoo 's Nest, strongly features the stereotypes of women and, adversely, women in power; Kesey displays his opinion that women in power will abuse their status to manipulate men. One aspect of Kesey’s display of his distaste for influential women, is displayed through the character, Nurse Ratched (Big Nurse).
With the inclusion of a multitude of perspectives, experiences, and emotions outside her own, her expertise heightens allowing her to be more respected as an influential writer on the subject at
Maria W. Stewart Analysis In this excerpt of a lecture given by Maria W. Stewart in the year 1832, she has a strong point: Although the African Americans in the northern colonies were free, they were not treated equal as the white people were. Stewart uses a variety of rhetorical strategies to bring her point in the situation, such as argument, compare and contrast, and appeal to ethos. Along with the persistent and serious tone, it is clear that she sees the unfair treatment of African Americans a major problem.
America, the land of the free and the home of the brave. This phrase is sung with pride and passion by American citizens. However, some of America’s hardest working citizens are shackled down by a factor that they have no control over. Poverty, is what’s keeping citizens imprisoned while they should be living free. An appalling 44 percent of homeless Americans are employed (http://nationalhomeless.org/).
The United States is made up of some of the most diverse and interesting cultures in the world. Jamila Lyiscott proves this by showing her different dialects and how they are all equally important. Lyiscott believes that the way she speaks towards her parents, towards her friends, and towards her colleagues are all one in the same. Throughout the entirety of her speech, Lyiscott changes up her vocal patterns and dialects so that the audience can understand first hand what each of these dialects are. When she talks about her father, Lyiscott uses her native tongue, when she talks to her fellow neighbors and close friends she switches it up to a more urbanized dialect, and when she is in school she masks the other two dialects with a professional sounding language.
Emma Marris uses many types of persuasive elements in her essay “Emma Marris: In Defense of Everglade Pythons”. In her writing she persuades her readers that the pythons should be allowed to be in the everglades since it is not their fault that they are there in the first place. She uses metaphors to relate to the reader and word choice to enhance her writing.
Before August 18th, 1920, only men could vote in the United States. One person that helped to right this wrong was Carrie Chapman Catt. In Carrie Chapman Catt’s address to Congress on women’s suffrage, she uses logos, pathos, and other rhetorical devices to convince Congress to give women more rights. One tool that helps make this speech as effective as it is is logos. She demonstrates logos when introducing the second reason as to why women’s suffrage is inevitable.
This is shown when Catherine achieves social authority only by denying the men who tried to control her, like her Father, and her lover Morris. To obey their commands would only add to her inferiority, but expressing an inability to obey is also a weakness. Therefore it can be said that Catherine gains power by acting coldly and imitating the male aggression she is shown. This is then generally applied to all women implying that women could thrive in patriarchal, male dominated work spaces of 1949 by imitating aggressive and destructive men. However, in the process, those women lose loved ones as well as stunt their own ability to love.
