The article “Consider the Lobster” by David Wallace opens a vivid, gruesome window, to a harsh truth that all lobster consumers push far back into the recesses of their minds. Wallace implores us to visit the controversial issue of boiling a live creature to death, for the sole purpose of our consumption. He uses a variety of literary persuasive tactics including the three rhetorical appeals Logos, Pathos and Ethos to drive home his argument to the reader. Throughout the article Wallace puts the reader on the front lines of a three-front war of convincing ethical, emotional and logical appeals. While his opinion is abundantly clear, he intelligently and craftily builds exceedingly relatable analogies for the reader.

Candy, who co-chaperones the patients on their fishing trip, embodies an unhindered and natural essence that can break down the oppressive machinery of the ward. Her presence damages what Bromden perceives as the equipment that invisibly controls the patients. When she enters the ward, Bromden imagines a “blue smoke … near the ceiling over her head; [he thinks] the apparatus burned out all over the ward trying to adjust to her come busting in like she did” (196). Candy enters so suddenly and unexpectedly that the machinery cannot calibrate itself and, thus, burns out. This apparatus is unable to register Candy’s free and unguarded movements because it is used to only controlling the confined men.
The claustrophobic feeling this invokes suggests to the audience that the girl is completely trapped, as her body now occupies most of the space in the frame. Furthermore, the contrast between the previous wide shot and the following close up, emphasises the abrupt and shocking nature of the attack. The girl is shown thrashing in the water and is dragged side to side, to simulate a shark attack. Through the effect of the close up, the audience becomes part of the attack, as if they are in the water themselves. Lester Friedman agrees that the audience becomes emotionally invested in the events onscreen: ‘while our rational consciousness understands that these are fictional creations with no power to harm us, we share the emotions of the characters trapped within the narrative unfolding before us’ (Friedman, 2006).
Anne Sexton comes up with the idea of suicide, she has done the numerous suicide attempts. But when the unnameable lust returns, it has brought her to the eternity. It seems like that the time has its own wings, it keeps flowing up to the sky, which makes her “cannot remember” (1) how a pretty chipping sparrow is cheeping on the branch of the oak, or even what she had done in the past seven days. “I walk in my clothing” (2) even when she wears clothes, she still feels like she is naked in her soul. Walking inanimately knows that life has nothing for her and when the soul has guided by the boredom, it comes to the voyage, the voyage of seeking to death.
