In Founding Brothers: The Revolutionary Generation, Joseph Ellis, Professor at the University of Massachusetts, Ellis explores many events and problems faced by the Founding Fathers as the United States seeks a new form of government. Ellis quotes Tom Paine, an English-born political philosopher, by saying “claimed that it was simply a matter of common sense that an island could not rule a continent”(Ellis, 3). Principles were at stake while the country was at a constant state of war with other countries, including the mother country England. Ellis paints many mental pictures of the American revolutionaries and their troubled hardships while maintaining balanced decisions on quite decisive events that were later to be shaping the ideas of
Furthermore, Mr. Rochester’s passion draws insecurity for thinking about the mad woman he keeps hidden away, yet Brontё implies Jane being the shining light to a new passion. Jane provides Mr. Rochester with the security of a well balanced future as his passion conflicts “the oath shall be kept” (Brontё 296). Nevertheless, Brontё illustrates how Mr. Rochester’s passion transfers from the embarrassment of Bertha to the proclamation of devotion to Jane. The passion for Bertha differentiates that for Jane, as Mr. Rochester hides Bertha from the public, but he flaunts his infatuation with Jane. Renewal of Mr. Rochester’s passion extracts from Brontё metaphorically “depicts Jane throwing the waters of baptism-- spiritual rebirth-- upon Rochester” (Lamonaca 4).
In the story, “Marigolds”, the author, Eugenia Collier uses imagery, diction and connotation in deep way. One example is of connotation is “... how thick were the bars of our cage”.

This shows how she and her friends would run around and play together.
In her essay she is informing her audience about patriarchy.The definition of patriarchy is “a system of society or government in which the father or eldest male is head of the family and descent is traced through the male line” (Dictionary). Hooks explains everything about patriarchy, she explains a religious perspective, a feminist perspective, and even a personal experience with patriarchy. To strengthen this, hook uses numerous rhetorical strategies. Hooks’ use of structure, tone, personal experience, logos, and variety of perspectives, support her purpose and strengthen her essay. As mentioned before, structure is a rhetorical strategy used in Hooks’ writing.
For pathos appeals Carson uses emotions such as fear, alarming, and concerns. This appeal is strong for this argument because of the use of pesticides and chemicals. An example for alarming, Carson poetically asserted that “to still the song of birds and the leaping of fish in the streams, to coat the leaves with a deadly film, and to linger on in soil” (Carson 645). The audience can create a polluted and an unclean stream of land that is deeply contaminated. Carson uses this song as a concept to show the purpose and create such fearful emotions.
He manipulates the idea of riotous nobility and the active nagging of sinful desires. By using words such as “wavered…panicked…clawing…greedily…stifling… and lunatic”, he is conveying an incomparable situation. In a childish state Soto understands the barrier between what is virtuous and what is nefarious, however he continually states the “thirst for the rest of [his] life”, and that destruction of good versus evil. Relating to the aftermath of Soto`s sinful act he states the “scared…greedy…and guilt” he feels in result of his actions. He shows the reader his transition in to the realization of his actions by using specific wording to represent his internal struggle of his desires for
Conformity is gradually oppressing the world in which we live in. This ideal is prominently illustrated in the film Pleasantville which is directed, and produced by Gary Ross. Pleasantville is a great demonstration of the dangers of abiding by society’s expectations, and the freedoms that come with rebelling to these expectations and embracing change. Gary Ross uses several literary techniques such as; colour (symbolism), and character development to indicate the lack of creativity, and originality in society. Throughout the film, Ross illustrates how obstructive conformity can be to society, and how rewarding rebelling to societal norms can be for not only self growth, but societal advancement as well.
The Declaration of Independence sends a message to other countries to be internationally recognized and gain independence from their colonial rulers. Thomas Jefferson, the third president of the United States of America, establishes ethos by being the main author of the Declaration of Independence, which formally freed America from Great Britain’s grasp, as well, as being the first secretary of the state of America under George Washington. His select example of offences committed by the British appeal to ethos as it gains the reader’s trust and causes one to view him almost as an authoritarian. Throughout the second paragraph, his obvious understanding of human nature causes audience to feel understood and consequently, garners trust from the
“It’s only hubris if I fail” by Julius Caesar. This quote can summarize Chris McCandless and Victor Frankenstein perfectly. They were very prideful and knew that they would succeed in everything they do, which they somewhat did. Chris lived in the wild for 100 days but died and Victor created a monster that killed people. So both their pride brought them to failure.
No nation on this planet, however, has ever experienced it like the people of Haiti. It’s fascinating to view human nature the way that Pitt does in Sometimes, The Earth Is Cruel. We as humans can’t stop moving. We’re always moving forward. That’s what gives us our intellectual advantage and supremacy to other species.
