Both Making Sarah Cry and Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote share the theme of Courage. In Making Sarah Cry, when the boy is being bullied by his former friends because of a scar on his face, Sarah steps up to help him. Even though she knew that they might start bullying her again. In Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote, Susan decides to go and vote even though in her time period, women aren’t allowed to vote. When Susan goes to court, she makes a statement that all women should be allowed to vote because they are the same as men. While both of these stories share a common theme of courage, the social implication of the stories is quite different. In Making Sarah Cry, Sarah only sticks up for herself and the boy. In Susan B Anthony Dares To Vote, she sticks up for all women around the United States, protesting that they should have equal rights as men.

Two stories and two magical wishes. The Monkey’s Paw and the Story of an Hour share several similarities throughout the passage.

When people write they can intentionally or unintentionally use rhetorical modes to communicate their message. Two such essayists who make use of rhetorical modes include Frederick Douglass in his essay “Learning to Read and Write” and E.B. White in his essay “Once More to the Lake”. Douglass describes his struggle as a child slave and how literacy helped him and hurt him on his path to freedom. White reminisces about the past and his trips to the lake while on a trip with his son.
