Pathos is used many times when James is trying to reach the reader 's emotional side. James Hamblin states “You can look back at your responses, remembering the good things and the feeling nostalgic or remembering the bad and feeling resilient” (Hamblin 3).

Gregor is taken into a deep state of depression, and he misses the s freedom Heidegger would call superficial he used to have. Kafka describes Gregor’s vison ,of the Charlotte street as a gray sky and gray earth being almost indistinguishably fused, implying that Gregor can no longer see the difference between his happiness and sadness. Gregor is no longer able to relate to the outside world due to his isolation for the past month, causing him severe loneness.

Of the eleven options to read or watch for the paper, I chose to read, the Autobiography of Malcolm X, and Siddhartha by Herman Hesse. The first choice, Autobiography of Malcolm X, was my first choice because it was a book that was a topic in high school history classes and I wanted to gain a better understanding of the book and actually read the book in its entirety.
