The most important aspects of Rhetorical Situations are exigence, and audience (Grant-Davie 266-270). Without exigence, there would be no discourse. Exigence is what spur the rhetor to create discourse. It asks the questions: why is the discourse important, what is the discourse about, and how is the discourse hoping to change the situation? (Grant-Davie 266).
In John D Mayer and Peter Salovey’s, “What is emotional intelligence?” emotional intelligence is described as “the ability to perceive emotions, to access and generate emotions so as to assist thought, to understand emotions and emotional knowledge, and to reflectively regulate emotions so as to promote emotional and intellectual growth” Mayer, J.D. (1997) “ In the best of stories, it is actually characterization that moves the story along, because a compelling character in a difficult situation creates his or her own plot." (Bernardo). Our performers understand that they need to be able to portray believable emotions in order to portray the correct emotion to the audience.

Vocabulary, as King says, shouldn’t be dressed up. It should be your own words and not an elaborate show that you put on to impress people. Stephen King’s writing techniques are very helpful and influential. The first one he uses, which every writer should use, is a focus on the reader’s interest.
She finally breaks after seeing a woman under the wallpaper. He husband is stunned in the last paragraph when she says to him, “’I 've got out at last,’ said I, ‘in spite of you’”. In the end, the husband’s ignorance to his wife’s condition leads her into psychosis. She believes that she was the woman she saw behind the wallpaper. This is an example of a woman wanting to please her husband so much that she ends up hurting
For every person, these unique forms these factors take are used to justify every action they perform. Therefore, even the most far-fetched action may seem completely normal to someone with the correct perspective and justification. In Edgar Allen Poe’s “The Cask of Amontillado”, it is apparent that the assumptions and decisions made by both the readers and Fortunato can be understood with the correct perspectives, but also affect them negatively as a result of failure to see other perspectives and a failure to receive wider context. Throughout the story, Poe conveys the importance that context and perspective has on the decisions and actions that people make. By better understanding what drives other people, and by better understanding of others’ past and current circumstances, perhaps society can make better decisions as a whole—ones that benefit the majority instead of just one individual or

Introduction Though Francis Bacon did not make a mention of the importance of the art of listening, it is still the primary soft skill without which the other communication skills, namely, speaking, reading and writing, may not be effective and successful. Undoubtedly, listening occupies most of our time. However, listening is not the end of communication. Mere listening to the words of wisdom is of no use unless the listener is guided and benefited by them. Failure to communicate the message properly or effectively or failure to receive the message well may result in a communication gap.
One major downfall of this rhetorical strategy is that it implies any and everyone has power to speak on any subject without having knowledge to back accusations. With the intention of persuading someone on the basis of emotion alone is
I quickly learned that rhetorical analysis required some unique critical thinking, different from an analysis of a pie chart or a position versus time graph. Rhetorical analysis did not require a single, definite answer; these essays often possessed a myriad of correct answers. I figured out that I needed to be open minded and impartial in order to view a piece of written work as a whole to see all the possibilities and applications of rhetoric. I also realized becoming more observant and scrutinizing every single, minute detail helped expand the extent of my

These actions show that King spends crafting his words with precision for maximum impact, while Johnson prefers to speak off the cuff after assessing the emotional climate of the specific situation. Johnson can transform himself to fit the setting, but King is unable to be anything other than who he
