The infomercial is appealing to our specific audience (people who enjoy literature and fictitious novels) due to the unique combination of a service which delivers a mystery box of books to the customer fast and cheaply while also retaining the thought of the customer and their preferences. The infomercial also hosts a large basis of logos as it is assumed that people who enjoy to read are generally more intellectual. Through the effective use of “scientific data”, logical reasoning, and other aspects, the infomercial appeals to the readers watching the advertisement by emphasising that there is no better alternative than the product. Besides the logos based advertisement, the infomercial has details about how everything works and pushes for credibility with the usage of generally known authors/books to make it seem like there is no real downside to the subscription given that good books from good authors are assumed to be in the mystery boxes. The infomercial uses ethos, pathos, as well as logos in different

Even though both stories center around worlds that are not real, they include the possibility of allegorically representing reality by asking readers to reflect on how books shape their own lives. The Library of Babel makes it possible to extend the problem at the center to many people by keeping the characters as general as possible, while S. restricts reader relatability to a few highly developed main characters and one of which, V. M. Straka, who is very obscure and leads to more questions than answers. Each story could also be seen as a response to moments of book history. For S., the way the story is presented is incredibly experimental, especially through its reliance on physical inserts to allow the reader to become immersed in the story. Through its innovative approach to writing and reading, S. could be seen as postmodern.
Other things that intrigue me about anything involved with Literacy it is definitely writing. I enjoy reading people’s summaries of books written by other people, especially when I’ve already read the book it’s nice to see what other people’s views are on books and their opinions.
However, since manly is not a scent there is only one way for these men to get the scent they desire: Old Spice deodorant. By using weasel words and providing the audience with an unattainable goal, such as smelling like something that has no specific scent, Old Spice spikes interest in their product. Men crave this manly smell to ensure that they are indeed manly and the only way men know to gain this manly smell is to purchase the product that is sold for the pure purpose of making men smell exactly how men should: like
How To Read Literature Like A Professor is a book that points out the more hidden elements of literature. Many of the elements of literature mentioned by Thomas C. Foster in How To Read Literature Like A Professor were used in The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. And most (if not all) of these elements are crucial to the story of The Great Gatsby. For example irony, geography and blindness all a played huge role in the storytelling of The Great Gatsby. Without these elements of literature, The Great Gatsby would have been completely different.
Although high school curricula exposes students to numerous novels of high literary merit, some especially important ones, such as Brave New World by Aldous Huxley, still fall through the cracks. Reading and analyzing Brave New World is critical to teaching students, specifically those in Depaul’s Honors Program, the importance of free thought and the abstract development of human identity. One of the biggest themes in Aldous Huxley’s novel explores conformity through the elaborate construction of a “utopian” society, the World State, in which human emotion is scientifically controlled in order to maintain social order. In this utopia, the passion of human emotion and conflicts are to blame for society’s problems and therefore are eliminated
The time period within the novel is constantly changing from the past to present, which I did not like, because since read inconsistently, I had to go back into previous chapters to refresh my memory. This book was an enjoyable read. It was necessary to pay close attention in order to keep up with the plot and the changing time periods in every chapter. It is a perfect book for young adults and teens that enjoy books of fantasy and romance. Night Circus was a book that kept me so immersed in the story that I wanted to read it all in one sitting.
Hello! I enjoyed this class as much as I hoped I would. My thoughts about literature changed while doing the milestones for our final paper. As much as I enjoyed reading, I did not give much thought to cultural identity. I enjoyed stories and reading, without really absorbing the culture within the story and how that affected the theme, character development, setting, and other literary elements.
