By misinterpreting and attacking the nuanced areas of the opposition’s argument, one is able to elevate his own argument while degrading that of the opposition’s. Even when an argument is sound and logical, if it contains a single unclear phrase open to interpretation that is followed by critical mockery, it appears inconsequential and foolish to an audience.

Herbert’s argument is innately logical but poorly supported and executed.

Martin Luther King Jr., an African-American activist, once said, “It may be true that the law cannot make a man love me, but it can keep him from lynching me, and I think that’s pretty important.” In the Jim Crow South in the 1930s, the setting of the film The Great Debaters, directed by Denzel Washington in 2007, King’s words were particularly relevant.

First and foremost, it keeps you out of trouble.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s classic novel, Crime and Punishment, displays an immense depth of literary devices and elements that function to contribute greatly to the development of the plot of the story. Crime and Punishment is a tale of a prideful, yet disgruntled “scholar” who through his own perceived superiority commits the capital crime of murder in order for a believed greater good. Through the examination of one of the essential passages of the story, we are witness to Dostoyevsky’s incorporation of literary elements like hyperbole, foreshadowing, and the central theme of crime and punishment, and these devices subsequent roles in advancing and emphasizing the themes and plot of the story.
