The emotion starts from something little like getting an “A” on a test but grows a large as the pride of winning a war and living free. In Pride, by Dagoberto Gilb, readers are given both hidden and concrete examples of what pride is and people who have experienced grave amounts of it at once. Grown men are brought to tears with the pride described by Gilb, but at the same time, the feeling can be so graceful and devout through metaphors. Through comprehension, rhetorical devices, and the tone and structure of Gilb’s essay, we can begin to understand the exact meaning the word “Pride” and what the it’s all
In President Bush’s address to the nation, he uses many rhetorical devices. A rhetorical device is a literary device that is used to persuade the audience to support the argument made. Bush’s address uses Ethos, Logos, and Pathos. They were invented and studied by the famous greek philosopher Aristotle. Ethos appeals to credibility, Logos appeals to logic or reason, and Pathos appeals to the audience’s feelings. They form a triangle consisting of the speaker, the message, and the audience.

Everyone wants the truth and with Leonard Pitts Jr. you get it. Pitts writes for the Miami Herald daily newspaper in southern Florida.

The reader can not base their thoughts of what the point of view is just by reading the first sentence. Also, characterization or the representation a
Donald Trump’s one very distinct “ability” is making a vast amount of people react to what he says. Be it good or bad, this makes him gain more attention not only in the United States, but all over the world.

So for those who are not yet sure about his sincerity, it only takes a not to deep analysis of his speeches to spot serious fallacies.
