As a producer/director it is hard to precisely depict genuine occasions that depend on a genuine story. Edward James Olmos went up against that test as he featured and coordinated the gang related motion picture in light of genuine occasions titled American Me. Brutal scenes go with the job when making films about packs and mobsters, and Olmos saved no cost with American Me. Olmos ' offered a reasonable delineation of how the Mexican Mafia started and in addition what it resembled for a youthful Chicano to experience childhood in Los Angeles amid the 1980 's, and the 1940 's. What can be troublesome about recounting the account of posse life is the way that on the off chance that you reveal excessively data about what truly happened, there can be shocking repercussions that accompany it. Robert Lopez composed a piece 1996 in the Los Angeles Times remaining that Olmos

A Film Unfinished, Badenhiem 1939, and Jacob the Liar all deal with the concept of Jews relocating to a different town to be punished which many of the characters in the story believed they were going to come out alive in this harsh process and that there was nothing to worry about but in many cases that was wrong. Many of the Jews in the story had the same mindset on what was going to happen to them even if their perception turned out to be wrong. There were many hints in all of these stories that gave them the perspective of something negative could have happened to them but many didn’t see it coming. On the eve of deportation, all of these stories mostly show the Jews in the Ghetto in a negative perspective. In the film “A Film Unfinished” by Yael Hersonski, the movies attitude toward the Jews in the Ghetto is basically how wealthy one is.
In the passage, “On Seeing England for the First Time,” the author, Kincaid, uses different stylistic and rhetorical devices to convey her perception and attitude towards England. She shifts from glorifying England to making it sounds like a piece of trash on the ground. The two devices that were highly enforced in this passage were tone and repetition, with these two devices Kincaid made her statement clear of how she felt about England. In the beginning Kincaid begins her passage by stating she was just a child when she first laid eyes on England. “The England I was looking at was laid out on a map quietly, beautifully, delicately, a very special jewel; it lay on a bed of sky blue..,” (Page 364, paragraph 1) states how mesmerized Kincaid was by her first impression of England.

The Disconnect of Dialogue and Interiority in Selected Stories in Olive Kitteridge Introduction After reading a short story or novel that leaves me with that intangible effect that I think all writers want their stories to possess, I like to read interviews from the author.

Most of the time I want to know how her characters came to be and how they evolved into their fullness. Reading these interviews always leads me to reflect and compare my own process of writing.

Recognizing the enormity of conflict can often be difficult. In lines 41-73 of Book 22 of the Odyssey, Homer uses diction and juxtaposition of language to contrast the calm and flattery tone of Eurymachus with the harsh and stark tone of Odysseus, and to illustrate the magnitude of the conflict, as well as dialogue to illuminate conflict between the suitors and Odysseus. Homer utilizes these literary techniques to underscore the tension between the characters in the passage. Book 22 begins with Odysseus confronting the suitors about his dismay at them for occupying his palace with Penelope while he departed. Eurymachus then uses a calm tone full of flattery in an attempt to mitigate the conflict with Odysseus.
Genre Throughout the different texts we analyzed in the first half of the quarter, we looked at the various genres of the texts in order to see how they affect rhetoric. Genres are important to rhetoric because they raise and manage expectations the audience might have for a specific work. This is because people have internalized the generic conventions of a genre. We delved into these conventions by analyzing different genres of texts such as Pitbull’s music video, film, various poems, and speeches. An example of how we analyzed a genre is how we annotated Horace’s poem about carpe diem.
