Miller had once said, “It would probably never had occurred to write a play about the Salem witch trials of 1962 had I not seen some astonishing correspondences with that calamity in the America of the late 40’s and early 50’s.
Can ye give to prostitution its former innocence?..) are used to convince American colonists that British rule cannot be tolerated. His use of rhetorical questions and simile effectively illustrate unjust British policies. Paine uses it to help build emotion, describe relationships, and give parallels or opposites.

I 've got one word to describe that, stupid.Just thinking about someone falling in love and killing themselves at the age of 13 is just stupid to me. The Friar wasn’t strict enough to say no and the Capulets were too strict to let Juliet live her life with Romeo.If there is one thing I have learned from this story, it’s that you always want to meet your other half 's family.

If you aren’t sent to the reform school before next week, my name’s not Dubose!”(Page 104) This is a complete lie that never happened and she is just trying to get Jem mad.

He focused specifically on the independence of the American people because he was aware that they deserved better, and that Britain was cheating them of their rights. In his essay, The Crisis #1, he directly calls out the British for who they truly are and what they were actually doing. "If there must be trouble, let it be in my day, that my child may have peace;" and this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty.” This sentence alone speaks right to the heart of the people, and talks on how important and dire it is that we act now, for the sake of our children, and their children’s future. His intentions were to provoke those not aware or those partially conscious of the matters and risks at stake, the country and everyone in its freedom. And that’s exactly what he did to start a revolution.

That since human corrupted values is a product of society, we need to critic society and its institutions and strive towards the conceptual idea of a “natural” society.

Justice is a defining factor of human motivation—it can result in the triumph or demise of a person’s actions. Nevertheless, justice is not only the blade that separates good from evil, but it is the adhesive that cements all of humanity together to form an overall gluttonous species. In the midst of injustice, both works by Martin Luther King and Sophocles question the rule of political law over moral law through civil disobedience, yet their purposes and outcomes differ from one another. Sophocles emphasizes the consequence of resistance to political rule in Antigone’s search for moral justice, while King depicts the racist cause behind his opposition to social injustice. In Antigone, Antigone portrays the suffering that comes from the consequences
Paine was very successful in this, and his paper was proclaimed as one of the most persuasive works of the American Revolution. Paine’s The Crisis is so persuasive because of Paine’s use of three rhetorical devices: ethos, pathos, and logos.
