This creates a great sense of mystery and interest: the reader is getting a story told by a poet, who heard it from a traveler who may or may not have actually seen the statue. The monument itself is an expression of the sculptor, who may or may not have captured the passions of the king. The best interpretation of the king is not the statue, but the kings own words written on the pedestal, “My name is Ozymandias, king of kings.” The author chose to convey his story through poetry to create something more powerful and enduring than anything politics could have achieved – while eventually understanding that Shelly’s words too will eventually pass, the same as Ozymandias, also known as Ramesses’ II reign and ‘lasting’ impression eventually eroded into the sands of

1. Aristotle once stated, “a man doesn’t become a hero until he can see the root of his own downfall (bisd303.org).” Oedipus epitomizes a true tragic hero in both his past and his actions, although he did not have any control regarding his fate. He had excessive pride and self-righteousness; he dares to compare himself to the gods in saying “you pray to the gods? Let me grant your prayers (33).” He is quick-tempered and spontaneous, which leads him to jump to conclusions, causing the reader to become aware of the fact that Oedipus is mortal and imperfect, henceforth with flaws. Oedipus’ error in judgment and tragic fall lead him to his downfall.
The most evident demonstration of such intention in Oedipus can be found in the words of the chorus: “The oracles concerning Laius / are old and dim and men regard them not. / Apollo is nowhere clear in honor; God’s service / perishes” (Sophocles 1030-1033). These words reveal the concern that if the prophecy about Oedipus had turned false (or if people thought it was false), it would have undermined Greeks’ respect and fear of gods and their prophets. This is why Oedipus had to become a victim of fate in the story. Other proofs of this motivation being important for the play can be found in various dismissing remarks about prophecies the protagonist and Jocasta make: “Ha!
Briefcases: Steps toward Rhetorical Analysis”, Carroll describes the need for rhetorical analysis to assist in decoding the purpose and intent behind a cornucopia of the situation we faced daily. She elucidates the subject by describing the steps that we need to effectively to do it. She points out how we analyze people around us by making quickly a conclusion to the person that we are analyzing. As a student, it is important that we use Rhetorical Analysis as a strategy to communicate effectively. For example, when we write an essay, we need to show how the text convinces us of its position.
To gain an understanding of a client’s thought patterns cohesively, one can use narrative therapy. Narrative therapy is known as re-authoring or re-storying of conversations (Morgan, 2000). It is a method that centres on people as experts of their own lives. A narrative approach thus views problems as separate from people. It is assumed that the person has many beliefs, values, commitments, skills, abilities and competencies which will help them to change their relationship with the problems that are influencing their lives.
This technique was called logos and it appealed to logic. “The evil that men do lives after them… So let it be with Caesar”(3.2. Line 78-80).Antony is saying that yes, Caesar did do some bad things that everyone remembers. But don’t forget about all of the good thing he did too. “I thrice presented him a kingly crown, Which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition?” (3.2.
He is tall, gaunt, and angular, with gray eyes and distinctive orange hair. He is a brilliant, innovative genius, but his designs are often rejected by clients who want them to conform to traditional standards. Roark’s refusal to compromise causes him to lose many commissions. While Roark struggles, PETER KEATING, his rival, rises to the top of the architectural profession. He is a mediocre architect, but gives the public exactly what it is used to.
Conversely, the trailer format adds onto the poem since visual and audio aids alter the pathos. What impacts the viewers is not the the mental image of the poem but rather the actor’s verbal emphasis on the inscription, “Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair”. The pathos lies in the actor’s impactful oration rather than the imagery from the poem. Also, in the same moment, dramatic music swells up before abruptly stopping, just as the great Ozymandias’ kingdom has fallen. The trailer even visually “updates” the kingdom for the modern tyrant the trailer is directed to.
