By recounting numerous tragedies and their effect on people throughout the story, Alvarez emphasizes the wickedness behind suppressing one’s unassailable rights while also underlining the importance of sacrifice. The difficulties of the Mirabal family to live under the Trujillo rule and still resemble a family ultimately culminate in the deaths of Maria Teresa, Minerva, and Patria and the removal of Rafael Trujillo. Readers are more adept to connect and respect the story of the Mirabals due to Alvarez’s constant reverent tone. Though lacking the same valor as each sister, Julia Alvarez does carry the same sense of passion in herself and for human rights. In the Time of the Butterflies will be a novel remembered throughout the ages, just as Julia Alvarez had
These completely opposite women serve as foils for each other since the differences between them help highlight their individual persona. John Proctor represents the connection between these two women. Thus, he is Elizabeth’s husband but has an affair with Abigail. This fact immediately opens the reader’s eyes towards how one’s flaws or mistakes can reveal other person’s qualities and virtues. Both,
“Pathos” was used explicitly by grabbing the emotions and feeling of the audience by the unexpected spontaneous reaction of the fiancée ("Ethos, Pathos, and Logos"), showing her real mask, when she noticed that her relationship and marriage are subjected to danger. “Ethos” is achieved by relying on a divorced axial character, a friend of hers. The former dependence paves the audience mind for the fact that marriage, at that environment, ceases being a divorce when problems, related to misperceiving personalities, arise among couples. The author also accounted for the left-brain audience who are mainly interested in one-to-one events; consequently, “Logos”, as a persuasion mode, was used as a transition between Shalash’s knowing that her relationship with Fouad would be adversely affected and her spontaneous reaction, based on her character, of the unexpected visit. To sum up, The Other Face, by Salma Shallash, managed to conduct the message, triggered by the author’s exigency, through a theoretical writing model integrating both persuasion and original writing
As she elaborates on her idea of how women should be displayed she refers to a book called The Body Project, an intimate history of girls by Joan Jacobs Brumberg to gain credibility and build up her argument, that way the audience will realize that there is a problem that is occurring. Lipkin agrees with Joan’s idea of how girls body parts have become a “project” to fix and mold. By having Brumberg’s opinion in the essay and Lipkin elaborating on those ideas it shows that Lipkin has a concerned attitude and allows her tone to be consistent throughout her entire essay. Lipkin also uses rhetorical strategies that are blended together to support her evidence the strategies used are ethos, pathos, and
The writer proved the point with relatable dialogs and an anecdote to let readers visualize a plausible situation. The author also connected this argument with argument #2 to demonstrate her point made before. Argument #4: “Women's conversational habits are as frustrating to men as men’s are to women” (Tanner 19). Tanner gave examples of speeches of women’s talking habits to compare to the silence men give each other. She included a book Fighting for Life by Walter Ong to point out the opposition between two different genders method in conversing.
Symbolism appears many times in Anthem. Ayn Rand had the ability to give settings and people deeper meanings that we could understand ourselves. It helped us deepen the understanding of the point she was trying to make. Symbolism is a good literary device that could be used to distinguish a novel to be apart of a dystopian
She proves it by showing the character’s thoughts, by telling the story using the third person limited ()and also by making it appealing to our senses. To begin, the author uses characterization in her short story in order to show just how difficult it can be to start a meaningful relationship when both partners are still quite unfamiliar with one and other. Firstly, when Robert and Margot were about to engage in coitus, Robert says; “I always wanted to fuck a girl with nice tits”. The fact that the author chooses to use the words “nice tits” shows that the only thing that interests Robert in this relationship would be Margot’s body. It reveals just how meaningless the relationship between these two, which can almost be called strangers, truly was.

How does Arthur Miller represent Abigail in the crucible? Arthur Miller represents Abigail in many different ways in the crucible, using her to show both how bent and cruel the government is, and to demonstrate how one little opportunity to gain power can cause many problems for all others. The main way he does this is through Abigail’s image and feelings he uses her attitude to tell the story in it’s own way. Firstly, he shows her to be a sweet and innocent girl, yet sneaky and unnoticed. Possibly to represent how weak and almost insignificant woman were at the time, and how they would look for ways to gain power or to avoid problems that they caused, while seeming harmless.
Our Lady of Alice Bhatti(2012) is a resonating example of Hanif’s natural gift of storytelling and of a dangerously sharp and pointed social satire. But underneath that satire is an intense critique. Hanif skillfully and realistically shows how women in Pakistan are dealt with. It is not the political issues or the religious fundamentalism which is keeping Pakistan down, Hanif argues. Alice is oppressed because she is a woman, as are the other ladies in the novel.
