The novel The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien uses many effective rhetorical strategies throughout. In the chapter On the Rainy River, Tim O’Brien tells the audience a story he has never told anybody. Not even his parents, siblings or wife. He narrates the events and emotions that he experienced after receiving a war draft notice during the summer of 1968. O’Brien is ashamed about how he dealt with the notice and he feels as though he is “too good” to go to war.

I—I RUN OFF" (37). This quote is showing where Jim ran away from his masters home and town so that he can free himself and his family. The town is also keeping Huckleberry Finn “captive” to. Throughout the novel Twain talks about how Huckleberry Finn feels trapped in the town and how he wants to escape civilization and his father. “Every little while he locked me in and went down to the store, three miles, to the ferry, and traded fish and game for whisky, and fetched it home and got drunk and had a good time, and licked me.”(Twain 34).

Most of them greeted us in a perfect manner, but one worker had a particular attitude issue. One usual Wednesday, however, two furious voices broke the tranquility of our Burger King bonding. The dispute seemed to happen because of the impolite worker’s annoyed facial expression and vocal tone. Soon after the boisterous dispute started, the manager of the center came out and fired the impolite worker without hesitation. Then, the manager, with a voice like an angel, apologized to the customer and gave him a free burger.
Doug doesn’t have any friends so he pranks people for enjoyment and keeps to himself. Doug most likely gets this attitude from his family, especially his brother, “There was Doug Swieteck’s brother, for one, who was already shaving and had been to three police stations in two states and who once spent a night in jail.”(11). His family has a bad reputation and he is probably just rolling along because a lot of people most likely expect him to be like his family. The middle of the story is when Doug starts to make friends and to not be the bad guy as much. He really starts his friendship with Holling and Danny off, by showing his personality when he is talking about Mickey Mantle (pro baseball player) and he tells them, “He had a batting average of 245 this year,”(79).
In Upton Sinclair’s novel The Jungle, he accounts the vile methods of food preparation and the hazardous working conditions for immigrant workers. Sinclair argues how the growth of industrialized food production, in Chicago’s Packingtown, results in competition for jobs. Survival now solely depends on physical strength. Sinclair offers socialistic solutions to these problems such as advocating workers’ rights and benefits. This refuted the Capitalists anything goes for money and no public obligation for workers’ ideas.
He shows Scrooge what terrible conditions his employee, Cratchit, is living in, and how his family and he are struggling to make ends meet for the holiday season. He also shows him a homeless community that Scrooge didn't even know existed because he forgot that not everybody can be as wealthy as he is. This scene was cut from the play probably due to its lack of significance to the main plotline of the original story. The film depicts Future leading Scrooge to his grave, where men are digging up his never-shared fortunes for themselves, while the play only tells of the men digging the grave to bury him. both film and play show scenes with people selling, buying, and trading his old possessions.
However, Singer is not entirely against eating meat. He argues that raising animals for meat is all right if they are not self-conscious and live a good life. Killing such an animal is bad but can be made up by raising another animal in its place – as the animal is not self-conscious, nothing has changed due to the replacement. However, Singer is completely against confining animals in zoos, hunting or experimentation on
Similarly, Shakespeare emphasizes nature’s laws when he writes, “seeking the food he eats and pleased with what he gets…here he shall see no enemy but winter and rough weather” (II.v.36-43). The only aspect in nature which can hurt man comes from nature itself, in the weather, such as cold winds and stormy weather. Man in the forest looks out for himself and cannot blame others for his or hers failures or faults. The ever extending forest in the setting of the play creates a lack of mankind, mankind does not control the forest unlike in the court where devious actions and corruption spurs from the unfairness mankind possesses. Since nature allows man to take care of himself, one has no reason for corruption and betrayal of his brethren.
The Epilogue of Parris After being voted from office, Parris had nowhere to go, but he would never let the citizens of Salem see his apprehension. He knew God had a purpose for him and obviously Salem was not where he was meant to bring forth God’s blessing. That is why he planned to travel to Boston and share God’s blessing with people who would respect him. However, after days of walking in the sweltering heat of Massachusetts in July, his usually well groomed face was now covered in scruff and his clothes had turned a strange off white color from excessive sweating. Though his appearance was different, Parris was still the pretentious man he had been in Salem.
Spare parts has an interesting plot, a unique theme, and a wide range of vocabulary which are all reasons why this book is a good choice for the common read. When I think of illegal immigrants, I think of middle-aged people crossing over a big fence to enter the drug cartel in the United States. This picture is wrong. When thinking of this, I am picturing one person with one story, when really there are hundreds of thousands of different stories. Like the boys in the book, there are tons of kids who cross over with their parents and they don’t even remember the event when they get older.
From his hand two cold cuts of roast beef flapped wet and slimy at the edges. I sidled up, cast him dirty looks. Soon all the meat was gone and I was licking my whiskers and if you squinted hard enough, you might have seen a touch of a smile on his face. He calls me Fermi, people call him Mulder. Person is more precise, if you’d like—crazy people don’t attract friends, it seems, at least once they turn 55 and move out to the boondocks and put up NO TRESPASSING signs up front.
Second, it costs about 1,000 dollars just to put them in jail, and the Death penalty Is much cheaper. Most of the money gets used on the food from the prisoners in jail.

Jobs applications, Financial Aid, Public Housing, and food stamps applications often ask for citizen’s criminal records, stigmatizing those who came out of the system, robbing them of opportunities. It’s very hard to find employment, convicts are all treated the same regardless of crime. In The New Jim Crow, the author talks about how young blacks are more likely to go to jail than college due to the system of incarceration. In fact, she cites a source that explains that in 2001, there were more blacks in the Illinois state prison, then there were in the state’s public universities, on drug charges alone. So forty years after the drug war was first declared, it still goes on, normalized by the commentary in media, and stereotypes assigned to those who serve time in correctional facilities.
