Rhetorical Analysis on Border Patrol States After a bad experience with border patrol agents Leslie Silko, a Native American writer felt the need to fight back in the only way she knew possible, by writing “Border Patrol States.” She eloquently writes an article that is timeless and relatable even today about the unjustness people feel at the border checkpoints. Silko’s article is able to pull feeling from the audience through the use of multiple rhetorical devices. It’s clear while reading the article that Silko was raw with emotion while writing the piece, but the article falls short in the author's overuse of pathos and limited evidence to support her claim. Silko begins building her argument with anecdotal evidence and reputable sources, citing convincing facts, and successfully utilizes emotional appeals; however her attempts to appeal to readers’ emotions weaken her credibility and ultimately, her argument. Throughout the essay Silko provides anecdotal evidence and facts to support her
I am so amazed that Shariati is able to tell us in his writing about the whole story from the birth till the death of Fatima. I used to found the biography of the Prophets and His Companions but the biography of Prophet’s children is rarely found. Before I read the book, the only thing that I know about Fatima is that she is the beloved daughter of the Prophet and is detested by Aiesha; the wife of the Prophet after Khadijah’s death and the daughter of Abu Bakar, the first of the Orthodoxs Caliphs. Surprisingly, after I’ve read the book, I just realized the real life story about Fatima. Fatima is the fourth and the youngest daughter of the prophet in Islam.
The authenticity of ‘Anne Frank: The Diary of a Young Girl’ has aroused much controversy in the society. To a large extent that many people are having doubt about its authenticity and I would like to take a deep look on it by analyzing different parts of the text and comparing with relevant historical events and secondary resources, and evaluate whether the diary is authentic or not. The book published in 1947 in Dutch. It was translated to English and published in 1952. Anne started writing diary from 12 June 1942, the last entry is dated 1 August 1944.
Furthermore, Diaz also uses conflict to characterize the personalities of each character. Junot Diaz uses various methods to project his stories that allow the readers to understand the stories vividly. Junot Diaz begins his book with an epigraph by Sandra Cisneros in which it states : Okay, we didn’t work, and all memories to tell you the truth aren’t good. But sometimes there were good times. Love was good.
There are even more symbols in “The Hand” but these are the biggest ones seen in the story. This is a story a woman learning the flaws of the stranger that she married and how she learns to accept and maybe even love in the future. Manly Hall once said, “Symbolism is the language of the mysteries. By symbols, men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the limitations of language.” The author uses the symbols in their writing to tell a different story than what the words written on the page say to the reader. How each of these individual readers interprets the story is the difference between reading and understanding the
In Fitzek’s novel “The Eye Collector”, there is a classic line which Zorbach utters nearing the end of the novel that will stick with most readers: “How could I have been so blind?” This revelation is especially striking considering the numerous warnings from the Eye Collector to Zorbach to relinquish the case. The juxtaposition of Gregoriev’s physical disability to her visions of the future complicates the plot in which the theme of metaphorical blindness is prevalent. This is further strengthened by the backward chaptering of the book and third person narration in retrospect by the unnamed narrator. This essay will discuss how the theme of metaphorical blindness is brought out through the plot devices, structure and diction used. Zorbach’s blindness is illustrated by his being led involuntarily into the heart of the case by the false radio broadcast and his planted wallet at the scene.
Disability is a topic that has been difficult for many to talk about. Many people have many different viewpoints on it, but the brilliantly written book, Flowers for Algernon, has put a new spin on the topic and opened up a whole new world of possibilities for new discussion. This is all because the genius author, Daniel Keyes, gave people a way to discuss the topic and the book in a third person point of view when they are really broadening and speaking their minds on how they think about miserable diseases that is burdening many in this world. In Flowers for Algernon by Daniel Keyes, Charlie Gordon is a thirty-two old man who has an intellectual disability. He works at Donner’s Bakery where he is met with many of his “friends”.
The Everglades is a much more complicated natural feature then known on the superficial level. When writing, Ogden breathes so much life into her pages with stories and facts that sometimes you can easily forget you are reading a work of nonfiction. If had not read this book, I would still be in the dark on this culture and the challenges they have faced and continue to. Not only did this book teach me about the culture but also allowed me to explore theories I had never interacted with, like the idea of rhizome. Now I see the Everglades for what it is, a superorganism with human and non-human activity giving life to its
Many people use books and stories as their primary sources as information but these sources are flawed. They are made to sell, not to inform. People often take these books as credible sources of information about Natives even though the sources only talk about the things that people want to hear about: the sun-dances, rituals, and stories. Lucy sees this and shares how, “She’d read in the papers how some white woman in Hollywood became a medicine woman. She was selling her book on her life as a medicine woman” (Warrior 174).
