Joseph Key 's question: “Did Quapaw/French misunderstanding cultural differences establish enduring relationships”, evidenced in the appropriation of religious symbols/ceremonies, war alliances, trade networking/gift giving, marriages, god-parenting, which formed tolerance among Euro-Indigenous people between 1672-1762, whereas clarifications would have caused conflict and
According to Lemony Snicket, “[You should] never trust anyone who has not brought a book with them” and writer Stephen King presumably would agree. In On Writing, pages one forty-seven through one fifty, King uses diction, critical and ardent tones and figurative language, to highlight the significance of reading and how it benefits a writer. King utilizes diction to persuade aspiring writers to read regularly. He writes, “I take a book with me everywhere I go, and find there are all sorts of opportunities to dip in.” (147) “Waiting rooms were made for books—of course!
Henry David Thoreau: Biography and Rhetorical Analysis of His Works Henry David Thoreau and the transcendentalist movement can’t be summarized merely in a single sentence or even essay, though this quote comes close, “Most of the luxuries and many of the so-called comforts of life are not only not indispensable, but positive hindrances to the elevation of mankind.” Transcendentalism is the belief that material things, the “comforts” and “luxuries” of which Thoreau speaks, are inferior to knowledge and spirituality. Thoreau was a major leader in this movement. Thoreau’s works, “Walden” “Main Woods”, and various poems of his helped to lay the foundations for Transcendentalism. Some 140 years after his death Thoreau is still being published, and written about.
Editorial makes believers of us all In his editorial Leonard Pitts discusses how criminals are using social media to curate and spread their heinous crimes around the world in mere seconds. Pitts explains this further by pointing out that our own friends and family members are acting as henchmen to these murderers by “forwarding, retweeting and reposting their grisly misdeeds as casually as neighbors in another age might have shared recipes over the back fence”. He appeals to the large audience of people that use Social Media and Email, typically younger readers, and that are actively forwarding and sharing events on facebook. He also addresses news readers that do not want to feel the purpose of these acts.
As Tim O'Brien discusses Curt Lemon's death, he effectively highlights the underlying paradoxes of a war story's truths by telling the same story in three accounts that each differ in diction, mood, tone, and sometimes imagery. For example, in the first paragraph, O'Brien utilizes a neutral, objective tone as he briefly lists the events before, during, and after Lemon's death. How so? O'Brien implicates his staunch neutrality in the middle of the first paragraph, where he nonchalantly recants, "He [Curt Lemon] was playing catch with Rat Kiley, laughing, and then he was dead." Here O'Brien seems to be playing with the audience's emotions, as he intentionally uses phrases such as "playing catch" and "laughing" to indicate vibrancy and child-like
Ever seen a movie when all hope is lost and then, boom! A miracle happened? The mood feels like a heartwarming surprise! He lets the reader know of his brink of lonelyness and hunger, then a sudden fofillment of joy takes place. Wonderful.
29. In the excerpt, Mark Twain develops the idea that a job can lead to self-knowledge. He alludes to that idea many times in the excerpt. There is a line that isn’t a very obvious one.
The audience will agree that Beowulf is a warrior of generosity, courage, and hospitality which practically defines the Anglo-Saxon heroic code. However, the audience will realize that he is a man of God if they reflect upon his reason which ensures those values. It is understood that Beowulf is as selfless as they come during a time of fear and despair. Beowulf contains an undisclosed characteristic known as fear and employs the courage required to defeat the demons that people have become apprehended to. Of course, others would argue that Beowulf is simply a new follower of Christ and that his morals fall along the lines of Paganism.
As an immediate result of Marc Antony’s funeral oration, Rome is steered into a state of anarchy. With the loss of their leader leaving them vulnerable, the plebeians falls victim to Antony’s engagement of rhetoric and are greatly stirred by his speech. Despite their commendation of Brutus just moments before, they are easily pit against him through Antony’s words and feel morally compelled to revolt against the conspirators in the name of Caesar. This frenzy escalates rapidly and the anger towards the conspirators grows so large to the point where the plebeians will penalize anybody who bears a slight similarity to them. For instance, two plebeians encounter a poet and, after besieging him with a slew of questions, discover that he shares
Benjamin Banneker earnestly attempts to persuade Thomas Jefferson, former slave owner, the wrongness of slavery by using his sense of morality and reasoning against him. Banneker brings to light Jefferson’s views and to set the foundation to take his argument further. He refers to the Revolutionary War in line 2, "...arms and tyranny of the British Crown..." and explains the British Crown and indirectly refers to their ruling of the colonies. The word he most significantly used was ‘tyranny’ which sums up the rule of the British Crown in the colonists eyes. He uses the Revolutionary War and its impact on the colonies to further deepen the argument on his next point, without this clarification what he said next wouldn't have made any
