Washington and Audre Lorde may be from two different worlds in their genes of writing, they both use rhetoric and figurative language to make them icon figures in modern day literature. Yes, both Washington and Lorde may be from figuratively different worlds in the gene they write in, the motives for their works, and many other differences, they do come together under the way they use metaphors, specific word choice, the use of pathos, and repetition. Their similarities in the way they structure their argument could even compare to Socrates and they way he structured philosophies, it’s this complex development of writing that sets the bar for authors be considers masters of their craft. In total, although two individuals may be completely different in styles of writing then can always be compared through their level of mastery in the use of complex figurative language and rhetoric

Following summer comes fall which symbolizes beautiful death that involves Jay Gatsby and Myrtle. A couple pages in the novel, it says “And so with the sunshine and the great bursts of leaves growing on the trees, just as things grow in fast movies, I had that familiar conviction that life was beginning over again with the summer.” (p. 4) This shows how spring symbolizes a new beginning where it is the renewal of Earth, welcoming summer. Not only is summer itself just dawning, but so is Nick’s new life. Nick is beginning his new eastern life for the first time. Also, it is a similar situation with Gatsby as his life seems to restart as well as he attempts to regain Daisy’s love for him.
Poe vs Hawthorne According to the online Oxford English Dictionary, romanticism is defined as “a movement in the arts and literature which originated in the late 18th century, emphasizing inspiration, subjectivity, and the primacy of the individual.” Romanticism can also be described as writing that finds it’s inspiration from nature. It focuses on emotions with more of a deeper and darker feel to it. Edgar Allen Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne are two talented Romanticism writers. Edgar Allen Poe wrote “The Fall of the House of Usher,” and Nathaniel Hawthorne wrote “The Minister’s Black Veil.” Edgar Allen Poe and Nathaniel Hawthorne do share similarities such as their use of symbolism and imagery. Both writers also possess many writing characteristics that individualizes the two from each other, for instance, their philosophical beliefs/personalities.
His first volume of poetry, Leaves of Grass, is regarded as one of the most important works in American literature. Basho raised the haiku from a comic from to a high art.

In poetry and other literary and rhetoric works, parallelism is a term that refers to a literary or rhetorical device that makes components or parts of a sentence have the same constructions or look grammatically similar. In other words, parallelism entails using repeated words, phrasal forms or successive verbal constructions that parallel in their meter or grammatical structure to create a particular pattern to prose or a literature passage. Authors and poets establish parallelism by using devices such as antithesis, anaphora, and asyndeton, among other literary devices in different possibilities of juxtaposed contrast and repetition. In “The Declaration of Independence” there are several examples of parallelism, and the one I select for
This era is unusual due to it’s overlapping of both the Romantic and Realism Era. Due to its coexistence in two eras, this division serves as a platform for authors to attempt to establish a new literary culture aside from the rest of the world. Encompassing the Transcendental Era are the beliefs of ideality, establishment of a utopia, skepticism of religion, and the arrival of knowledge through intuition.

Literary theories are some ideas which try to define what literature is and how it needs to be studied. These focus on the nature of literature and present some methods to analyze those. These theories are like different lenses that views literature privileging particular aspects of a work over other characteristics.
