She told john she would confess then when she tried she got nervous and accused John to save her own life. The third example of vindictiveness is when Thomas Putnam accuses Jacobs. Jacobs had a lot of land and Thomas saw the opportunity to get it for free. That as a very vindictive move from Thomas Putnam. The final example is at the beginning of the play Abigail threatens all of the girls.
Throughout the entire book of The Crucible, female citizens are being accused of witchcraft and one of the most prominent rhetorical devices used is bandwagon. “On the bandwagon” is a term used to describe people that jump on trends that most people are doing. In The Crucible, when Rev. John Hale was interrogating Tituba, she started accusing two other citizens in hopes of everyone else not accusing her of undergoing witchcraft/ being a witch. She is seen accusing the people “there is Goody Good … Aye, sir, and Goody Osburn” (47) which shows Tituba’s characterization as a liar and a deceiver.
In this essay I will explore the ways Lopez turns the article into a melting pot of facts, opinions, and real life stories in order to convince the readers that physician-assisted suicide should be illegal everywhere. I argue that the techniques that Lopez used throughout the article created a strong argument that could very likely change the minds of many people in the world that support such an unethical act. Katherine Jean Lopez starts this article with an excerpt from a letter that a girl dying of cancer writes to another girl with cancer that wants to end her life with physicians-assisted
fter nearly 20 years of being treated like a punchline, Marcia Clark’s story got a feminist re-examination thanks to Ryan Murphy’s “The People vs. O.J.” The miniseries shed light on the misogyny that dominated much of the coverage of Clark when she was prosecuting O.J. Simpson. She was called hysterical; the press and judge criticized her hairstyles and outfits; a tabloid published topless photos sold by an ex. Two decades later, these incidents read as so obviously disgusting that they require a reckoning. Clark deserves to (finally) have a voice, to tell her story on her own terms.
“Now why should that man have fainted? But he did, and right across my path by the wall, so that I had to creep over him every time” (Gilman 320). This is an event in the story that basically confirms the symbolism expressed leading up to it. The wallpaper was one of the sole factors in her imprisonment, and getting rid of it freed the woman she believed was inside, which was actually herself. In conclusion, being able to recognize the symbolism in the short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” is key to understand what is going on throughout the rest of the plot.
All characters in the crucible are puritans, which means that they are religious and they often attributed frightening occurrences to devil’s work, but Miss Putnam is the most pious puritan in this book. When Betty blacked out, Mrs. Putnam simply concludes that Betty is bewitched and cannot hear Lord’s name without pain, while Rebecca Nurse thinks that it is a normal disease that a child gets. Mrs. Putnam’s seven babies all died without any apparent reason. Convinced that someone used witchcraft to kill her babies, Mrs. Putnam sent Ruth to Tituba to contact the sprits of her dead children to find out who killed her babies. She doesn’t mean to harm anybody; she just wants to find out the reason why her babies have been dying.
Fred Van Valkenburg calls Allison the witness stand starts questioninh,she states,"...And I can be honest with you in saying that if I had found out that some girl was going through this hell...I probably would have killed myself. "[Allison 223] If she knew someone gone through thecsamexpain because she was silent,she would kill herself. This shows how much she cares about Beau harming anyone else ever again. She is displaying
Another example would be in the middle of the book where Melinda describes over-analyzing a book called The Scarlet Letter as “tearing it up and chewing on its bones”. Word choice and figurative language are also used to paint a better picture of the tone of the story. Instead of describing Melinda’s parents as simply mad at one another, Laurie Anderson used the phrases “Mount Dad, long dormant, now considered” and “Mount Saint Mom,oozing lava, spitting flame” to show the high degree of anger her parents had towards each other and to Melinda herself. When students at Merryweather High School ask her questions, whether directly or behind her back, the author always adds an element of suspicion and hostility to them. Imagery and making inferences was also a method that the author used to further the plot of the story.
Explain- They take in woman that can give children to people that can’t have kids.

Yossarian says in Catch 22 “Every victim was a culprit, very culprit a victim and somebody has to stand up sometime to try and break the lousy chain of inherited habit that was imperiling them all.” (Heller, 39:465). Yossarian said this right after he left the combat and refused to fly more combats. He was thinking about Nately’s whore and that she was holding him responsible for his death and this came to mind, that she had every right to hate him because he was part of the war and part of the misery that landed on her kid sister and every other kid. During my research I found this cycle in some novels. In The Merchant of Venice and Othello by Shakespeare the cycle never stops, it is a consistent cycle between Jews and Christians.
While in jail, Winner called her mom and said, “Mom, those documents. I screwed up.” Prosecutors expressed that Winner had desires to meet Taliban leaders, create a burner email and use the dark web. While speaker to her sister, Winner expressed that she would cry in court to gain sympathy. As of late, Winner stands by her not guilty
The Ways We Lie by Stephanie Ericsson explains how everyone lies in this world, one way or another. Ericsson expresses the many ways people lie and why they do so. She educates her audience by describing the different types of lies told daily by sharing personal stories, asking rhetorical questions and creates hypothetical situations to support her statements.

Then she continues to explain a façade, changing your personality making people believe something you are not.

This episode was a bit confusing because of the simple fact that she was lying and there were so many added elements into the storyline. The episode starts off with her, Janice, coming into the police station to report a possible child abuse case. She told detective Benson that she was a therapist, named Dr. Anna Young, and wanted to report one of her patients. Coincidently, the patients name was Janice. The patient
