Her use of imagery paints a picture for the readers which ultimately helps to make learning the writing process easier. For example, when she says “the critics would be sitting on my shoulders, commenting like cartoon characters”, this creates a humorous and memorable image of shoulder sized critics (Lamott 469). This step in the process is unusual from what other authors say, yet it’s interesting which engages the reader. Lamott also uses similes and metaphors throughout the essay to explain what it is like for most struggling writers. She states “we all often feel like we are pulling teeth” when it comes to constructing and composing a piece of work (Lamott 468).
Such approach of conveying the vital information to the audience is fairly useful as evokes different feelings which in fact urge to read more on the presented topic.

Moreover, Beaty, in order to appeal to her readers, uses pathos while explaining a variety of emotional behaviors. In particular, the author introduces a number of killers, including John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, and Jeffrey Dahmer. By doing this, she analyses their psychopathic tendencies developed from abusive families in which they have not received enough love and care.
In the passage, Nancy Mairs, who has multiple sclerosis, calls herself “a cripple.” Mairs presents herself in the passage by using rhetorical features such as tone, word choice, and rhetorical structure. Among other vocabulary possibilities, she specifically choose cripple to be the word that describes her. Why she choose this word, she wasn’t really sure. Perhaps because the word cripple doesn't hide the truth from the outside: “ I have long since grown accustomed to them; and if they are vague, at least they hint at the truth.” Perhaps she uses the word “cripple” to show that her conditions is more severe for it to be described as “handicapped” or “disabled.” The rhetorical feature she used was tone; it showed that she has already accepted
Short stories often utilize suspense to peak a reader 's interest and keep them reading until the end of the story. One story that utilizes suspense is CP Gillman 's "The Yellow Wallpaper" as a woman 's experience with a rest treatment is described through an intriguing stream of consciousness. To determine how suspense is created in this story it is important to closely analyze the word choice of the story and how it plays a role in the reader 's interpretation of the text (Bennet and Royle 227). By looking at how the narrator describes her mental state, the reader is better able to understand exactly how the narrator is feeling and discern her mental state. In addition, the syntax of the novel leaves certain aspects of the ending up for multiple interpretations creating tension between open and closed readings of the text (Bennet and Royle 232).
Dawn used this book as a way to become one with her inner demons, and to show to others like her that they are not alone in their feelings. The more mental illness is talked about, the more it creates a feeling of commonality and togetherness between all sufferers and those who wish to be a part of their lives. With Dawn’s work, it feels not exactly like she 's sharing secrets, though there are some, but that she is in the middle of the street making pain and pleasure known. She does not hold back and sugarcoat or glamorize her illness, but rather pick apart the being that it is and describe in detail every aspect of it. Depression is a monster, that “divvies, clinically scores [her], into that and this and this and this.”(Dawn, ..), and letting others know that this monster exists is a huge step towards feeling understood by those around.
Satrapi uses these impossible perspectives and blank backgrounds to emphasize the extremist ideas that are being portrayed in the foregrounds. In conclusion, Marjane Satrapi use of numerous artistic styles and structure, and techniques in this passage to help her in having a positive effect on her readers, by aiding
These reasons explain why overall, Steinem does a very good job of persuading the reader to think differently about the perception of women’s strength. Throughout this essay, Steinem uses various rhetorical claims in order to establish credibility. For instance, from the beginning the utilization of pathos was applied in order to catch the attention of the readers. Steimen expresses, “I
The readers managed to get an inside look of Esther’s thoughts and feelings as the narrative is detailed and intimate. As the reader, I was able to emphasize with her and the writing allowed us to experience the helplessness and emptiness first hand. Esther’s presentation of major of depression was written eloquently as Plath did not hide her character’s major flaws, and she still humanizes Esther, something that is very rare in fiction as most characters with depression tend to be portrayed as “crazy” or not entirely “human”. Sylvia Plath herself was also diagnosed with depression and The Bell Jar is considered as the fictionalized account of her own clinical depression. Esther’s downwards spiral into depression was parallel to Plath’s own descend into depression.
Roald Dahl’s ‘The Landlady’, a mystery-horror short story, is purposely written to entice the readers to think about how people are not always as they seem. Dahl uses the art of foreshadowing to focus on the mysterious Landlady. The Landlady is described as about forty-five or fifty years of age with a round pink face, gentle blue eyes and pale lips. She also has small, white, quick moving hands with red fingernails. At first, the Landlady seems pleasant and accommodating, however, as the story progresses the reader discovers there is more to the Landlady; her true personality and purpose.
Both, short story and video, convey the partialities that individuals with incapacities face. The video “Waiting on the World to Change”, is motivational for the individuals who have a hearing impairment. In my opinion, “Disability” by Nancy Mairs story makes a more effective argument than the video “Waiting on the World to Change”. By portraying her own encounters, she attracts us and tells us what it is like for her. She discusses individuals who have inabilities and how people regard them as if they were not the same as any other person.
Overall, Frankie and Alice was a thrilling tale about an African American young woman learning to cope with her past. It gives such an in depth perspective of someone who suffers from this disease, and shares it in a way that makes others understand it; rather than judge like many people are prone to do. Frankie and Alice also shows that with the help of others, it is possible to somewhat defeat this disorder, by cohabitating with the alter egos. This movie gave all of us an interesting insight to the world of those who have DID, and it is a movie each person should
