In John Downe’s letter to his wife about emigrating to the United States, he uses personal anecdotes to appeal to ethos and logos, subjective diction to appeal to pathos, and comparative devices to contrast the United States and England. In his letter, Downe refers to his personal experiences in America to add credibility to his attempts to convince his wife. “... they had on the table pudding, pyes, and fruit of all kind that was in season, and preserves, pickles, vegetables, meat, and everything that a person could wish…,” using a personal anecdote, he tries to sway his wife into believing that every family in America is this fortunate. It’s established that he was poor prior to moving to America, so he speaks of trips to the American markets like, “I can have 100 lbs. Of Beef for 10s.
In “I, too” Hughes mixes these two authors and uses them to personify America as having two identities. Evidence of this lays in the reluctance of Hughes to name white Americans (although interpreted at the surface) as “they”. Hughes recognizes that America has made smaller efforts by allowing them rights (the 14th and 15th Amendment), which he illustrates in lines “But I laugh / and eat well, / and grow strong.” (5-7). Thus they are not starved or depressed, but moving forward. However, “They send me to eat in the kitchen / When company comes,” (3-4) is a line that identifies those parts of America as racist.
She goes on to say, "it will probably grow back" (6), indicating that even if her sister’s attitude is resolved for a little while, it will come back. These characteristics of a tongue make the reader believe that the sister is sarcastic and does not easily accept opinions or changes. Magarell uses cooking, a much less violent subject, in order to describe the tongue. She uses ingredients in order to make the tongue more sweet and savory, stating that it’s, “best with horseradish” (4). To describe the heart, the speaker says that it is "firm and rather dry” (10).
In the article, “Deconstructing Dinner,” David Kamp discusses in detail Michael Pollan’s novel, The Omnivore’s Dilemma. In his discussion, Kamp breaks down the most notable aspects of Pollan’s novel, making sure that Pollan’s view that the American diet has led to dysfunctional eaters is clear. Kamp notes that throughout the novel, Pollan places an emphasis on the development of the final product, rather than the final product itself. I plan on utilizing this writing piece in backing up my claim that the American agricultural industry is changing from past traditional means.
Therefore, the art installation serves as a tool to empower women. The Dinner Party uses the table to show symbolic meanings of breaking the historical silence. Some art scholars argue that Chicago’s work is a feminist art intended for political activism. This form of art aims to be open, participatory and expresses the collective and personal experiences of women. Chicago’s artwork draws from historical and mythological figures to celebrate the efforts of women in making a considerable difference in society (Ciobanu 94).
A Rogerian Argument takes a subject that two sides differ on and instead of arguing directly for one side without referring to the other, the author states the opposing view point. By taking a “your side is valid but my point is valid as well and here’s why” approach to the structuring of the essay or writing, the author takes a less aggressive approach and empathizes with the other side in order to reach a middle ground. This type of argument is a better approach to conflict resolution since the author sympathizes or recognizes the other side’s point of
In this paper I will argue that cosmopolitanism and patriotism are more compatible rather than being binary opposites and that this inherent tension is resolvable. To support this thesis, I will begin by looking at Alasdair MacIntyre 's definition of patriotism and Thomas Pogge’s definition of cosmopolitan. I will then look at Kwame Anthony Appiah’s argument that “cosmopolitan patriotism” is not an oxymoron at all; the two concepts are completely compatible. Second, I will examine Kok-Chor Tan’s arguments on cosmopolitan patriotism. Third, I will show that Robert Audi also supports my thesis in suggesting that
At the point when Starbucks chose to leave North America (USA & Canada), Starbucks needed to utilize an extensive variety of strategies to decrease social and monetary separations from remote markets. Concentrating on social separations, the organization led a few inquiries about in every nation to assess nearby social sensitivities and inclinations. As it were, Starbucks broke down the business to check whether the host nation was prepared, socially talking, to acknowledge their items. In Japan and China, their showcasing technique was to show up as a "chic western" café and in Europe, where espresso is an extremely old convention, Starbucks worked carefully in light of the fact that the American culture was criticized. As an organization
She was important to the development of ballet because she introduced stylistic influences from her Italian homeland into the French court.

The invention of high heels as a fashion statement was credited to her. She is well known as a plotter and poisoner and is famous for involvement with magic and the
In “The Hunger Games” by Suzanne Collins, appearances are held to the utmost importance by the people of the Capitol (2008). The people of the Capitol value the way they look and will go to almost any measure to build their self-esteem by changing their appearance. They dye their hair all sorts of odd colors, change their skin color to colors such as green, blue, pink, orange, or other uncommon colors, paint their nails, wear clothes that are peculiar to the other districts, and practice bulimia by eating tons of food only to throw it up. When Katniss describes her team of stylists from the Capitol, she describes one by saying, “I grit my teeth as Venia, a woman with aqua hair and gold tattoos above her eyebrows, yanks a strip of fabric from my leg, tearing out the hair beneath it. “Sorry!” she pipes in her silly Capitol accent.
