People are beginning to recognize that languages can package knowledge in radically different ways, thus facilitating different ways of conceptualizing, naming and discussing the world (Harrison, p.59). More people need to become aware of the damage that is being done to society and the world. After the death of each language comes the death of valuable cultural traditions and
‘"O Captain! My Captain!" is the only Walt Whitman poem that has a regular meter and rhyme scheme’(David 4)Although, there is no specific amount of feet in each line. On the contrary, “Elegy for J.F.K.” has no meter. But similar to “O Captain!
There is no rhyme scheme at all, however there are nineteen lines, and six stanzas each one except the last stanza has three lines in it. The last one has four lines it. What is noticeable is the reparation of the line “Somehow we got out of there alive”. This is line that starts that eerie shift in tone, but something else readers should notice is that way every time that sentence starts it continues into the next. All the stanzas relate back to that sentence, which makes the end of poem incomplete in a way that the question is never answer why did they have to get out alive?
The reason being is due to the fact that it has a great extent of rhetorical devices used in that section. However the rhetorical devices that stood out in this paragraph was syntax, the usage of syntax is very uncommonly used rhetorical devices due to its difficulties. Syntax makes an appearance in the first sentence when it is Dr.King States “ perhaps it is easy for those who have felt the stinging dart of segregation to say, “wait.” The sentence actually goes on to end at the later part of the paragraph which state “then you will know will understand why we find it difficult to wait.” Martin Luther King wrote in this style to in order to make readers wait for him to finish the concept, just like how Dr. KIng and his people had to wait for
To quote Wilson Bentley, “No two snowflakes are alike.” Similarly no two articles or writings are alike. Every author has his or her own unique style and tone. Some authors make use of divine diction while others focus on sensational syntax. Furthermore no two articles are equal in content or caliber, theme or message, vocabulary or devices. With this in mind, Mr. Grant, I have determined based upon their individual writings how to divide up the $5000 between Michael Levin, Mike Ryoko, Marcia Clarke, and John F. Kennedy.
When researchers searched Shakespeare’s writings, they found almost nothing in his own handwriting. In fact, the few times when evidence was found bearing Shakespeare’s handwriting, it seemed to be written in a shaky manner that simulated the writing of a person who had hardly written or was barely literate. “Yet the only writings said to be in his own hand are six shaky, inconsistent signatures on legal documents, including three found on his will. If, in fact, these signatures are his, they reveal that Mr. Shakspere experienced difficulty signing his name.” (DoubtAboutWill.org.) This casts great doubt to the theory that Shakespeare wrote all or any of the work credited to him and gives rise to alternate theories of authorship.
Although Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde tells the story of its eponymous scientist and his dual personality, the story’s protagonist is Jekyll’s lawyer and friend, Mr. Utterson. The reader sees the story through his eyes, and follows him as he uncovers the truth about the connection between Jekyll and Hyde. His personality is what makes him the most effective and most reliable narrator. Utterson is the most effective because other characters trust him, and the most reliable because of his strong morals and unbiased nature. Utterson’s perspective is more effective than those of other characters because of his ability to make people trust him.
00oHe also thrived off of debating with other people and I think this quality alone can be considered either a good or bad thing. For example, debates mean that there is an open platform for discussion and substantiated arguments. However, from the portrayal of Hutchins and his debates, I believe he is more self-interested. Instead of actually listening and trying to understand his opponent’s point of view, he is seen wanting to be heard out more while playing the role of the angel in the situations. Ultimately, I think this is a dissonant aspect of his leadership.
In this way, he established a culture of learning in his administration, said Kearns Goodwin” (Moreton). Also, he had the ability to control his emotions and not let his anger escalate to something bigger. “When Lincoln was particularly angry he had a habit of writing a letter to the person he was angry with and setting it aside, often not sending it, but rather expressing those emotions on paper” (Adubato). This is an extremely important trait in leader because it is easier to talk to a leader that controls his emotions. This ability also let Lincoln have the ability to discuss problems with opposing views and work out a solution without getting anger.
Despite being in English, it is incompressible compared to modern English meaning that it has to be translated to a more modern version of English. Many people have translated the poem, two examples being Seamus Heaney and Burton Raffel. Because they are separate translations, there are slight changes and deviations within the two translations. This can be best seen with the hero Beowulf. Though the two translations have their similarities such as Beowulf being portrayed as courageous and him believing in fate, they differ when it comes to Beowulf’s pridefulness.
