First, he argues that the sinking of the USS Cyclops was due to unreliable wireless communication in 1918. This is a pathos appeal because the sinking of the ship has never been explained and failure of communication does not mean a vessel should sink. Secondly, the author uses logos appeal to show that SS Marine Sulphur Queen was prone to get an accident because the vessel was already in deplorable condition and was further compromised when it started to be used in carrying molten sulphur from carrying oil. Thirdly, he argues that the disappearance of NC16002 was due to the plane’s batteries not been fully charged which led to interference with communication during the flight – this line of argument has a logos appeal. Finally, the author also uses logos appeal to explain the disappearance of Flight19 – this happened mainly because of the confusion that Lt. Charles Taylor had put himself in.

With a plethora of books on varying subject matters, the world of literature is almost endless. Quality books and authors often camouflage further meaning behind a character, theme or symbol providing a treasure for readers willing to search. Ray Bradbury includes a hidden treasure in his novel Fahrenheit 451 by contrasting two of his main characters. The overall message of the story describes a futuristic society with many technological advancements, and the prohibition of books, where Ray Bradbury shows how devastating a society is with mindless technology and lack of quality literature and interactions. However, by exploring the juxtaposition between the characters Mildred and Clarisse, a further meaning can be found through their differing
“There Will Come Soft Rains” is a short story by Ray Bradbury that was first published in the May 6, 1950 issue of the Collier’s. The story was later published in Bradbury’s The Martian Chronicles, which was a collection of science fiction short stories.

The Effects of Biblical Allusions on The Grapes of Wrath In 1939, shortly before the outbreak of World War II, a gifted American author, John Steinbeck, was able to publish a novel with blatantly Leninist, communist leanings called The Grapes of Wrath. Although it was hated by some, it was read by many, and even led to Steinbeck’s Nobel Prize in 1962, during the height of American anti-communism and the Cold War. America was able to accept this communistic novel mainly due Steinbeck’s ingenious mixture of realism, Leninism, and abundant Biblical references. John Steinbeck’s use of religious symbols helped to deliver Steinbeck’s Leninist message disguised within a story that often references the Bible and the teachings and love expressed therein, through the interactions of representations of Peter the Apostle and Jesus Christ, the ideal worlds of the promised land and the Garden of Eden, and the love surrounding the Song of Solomon’s Rose of Sharon and a Moses figure. Steinbeck begins the story with heavy handed parallels between Jim Casy and Tom Joad and Jesus Christ and his apostle, Simon Peter, respectively.
The theme the past can affect the present is represented through Vladek not hiring anyone to do work for him, Vladek always making Art finish his food, and Vladek's glass eye.

Vladek was on the roof by himself because he didn't want to hire someone to fix the problem and he thought he could do it himself. Mala was getting worried that he would fall or get hurt. “I’m telling you I don't know what to do with your father, he just climbed onto the roof!” (CITATION) Vladek does not trust anyone else to do his work.

The inaction and sloppiness of the US government and its military at the time is what caused the USS Indianapolis to fail and for the nearly 900 men to die at sea. If the ship would have been properly repaired and stocked, along with the men on the ship being properly trained for sea life, all those innocent, brave lives would not have died. The ship sank and failed due to the military 's haste upon needing new recruits and the how utterly unprepared the ship was
