In 1791, Benjamin Banneker wrote a letter to Thomas Jefferson attempting to show him the wrongs the United States are dealing with slavery. Banneker uses his high intellect to use descriptive language, he uses allusions to speak about biblical quotes, and historical events and other rhetorical devices to combat the problems with slavery. Banneker’s advanced knowledge at the time allowed him to use descriptive language to emphasize the subpar fairness to African-Americas at the time. Banneker notes that slavery is “apprehensions of the horrors of its condition,” stating that African Americans had a much more unpleasant experience than others in this time period. He also references the “groaning captivity and cruel oppression,” Banneker coveys

Hi Citlaly, I believe that when you say “we are not from just one place or the other but we are a mixture of both.” is what Paredes ’s try to emphazise in this line of his poem: “he no gotta country, he no gotta flag.” The idea of not knowing where you really belong, that you are not just for one place because you are the mixture of both, as you said.
In the letter, “Rilke's letter one”’ Rainer Maria Rilke uses very unique words to convey his point. Rilke uses these word choices to help the reader better understand his point of the letter. Rilke also uses figurative language throughout his letter to help emphasize what he is saying and also help paint a picture for the reader. Rilke uses his word choice to help develop the tone.
In Albert Einstein’s letter to a sixth-grade student, Phyllis Wright, Einstein provides a rhetorically ineffective response about the role of religion in a scientist’s life by misusing specific diction and appealing to ethos. Einstein uses words like “supernatural” and “fragmentary” to describe his religious beliefs; although he understands his audience is young, he is unable to conform his diction to suit the audience’s needs. The grandiose language Einstein uses could be too complicated for Wright. Through the confusion this causes, Wright could miss the candid response Einstein is attempting to provide. In addition, Einstein attempts to appeal to ethos , but dreadfully fails.
In the last letter, Rilke tells Kappus how to be firm with what he is grasping onto and to always trust art. Rilke uses the words “trustingly and patiently” and “unique, unrepeatable being” to emphasize that in order to be a exclusive individual one must wait and trust that something will happen. This furthers that art takes time and effort to produce in order for it to truly be the only one of its kind. There has to the spark between it and the creator who is pouring his heart into what s/he is creating. Rilke says the words “great natural Things” and “all we need” as metaphors to show that nature is still very important when it comes to writing and art.
In other words Rilke tells the poet that he should be himself and start writing about the everyday beauty and nature that surrounds him to later help him realize how to criticize his own work and make him a better poet that only he can

The narrator begins to change as Robert taught him to see beyond the surface of looking. The narrator feels enlightened and opens up to a new world of vision and imagination. This brief experience has a long lasting effect on the narrator. Being able to shut out everything around us allows an individual the ability to become focused on their relationships, intrapersonal well-being, and
Moreover, the poem is stating that it is not a matter of if the user will cry, but when the user will cry. Whether the pain is a physical cause from the process of applying eye makeup, or mental from the psychological strain that beauty expectations place on women, the process does not sound desirable either way. Now, the speaker 's attitude extends beyond the beliefs of society, to the women who follow through with this process. The speaker is exhibiting how foolish it is to place oneself through suffering in order to achieve artificial
Erdrich’s use of strong imagery and sensory language leads to striking and vivid diction in her poem. Painting a picture of what this tragic scene looked like while she also gives light to the actual situation going on, asserts the story Erdrich is trying to get across.

He states that “Reflecting on experience help us re-enter life with a new understanding and sense of direction. ”(Monte Par. 1). Which this is true due to the fact that reflecting, allows one to relive a past event and learn from it, to prepare for future situations. It gives a person the opportunity to see what they have done wrong or right in the past to use that knowledge in the future. The speaker acknowledges this in the poem as he says, “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
They may not need to confront death and the unchanging world, but neither will they be able to have the human experience. The lovers will never be able to experience the kiss. The two domains of the transient reality and the permanent idea. Keats is balanced between the two facets as life recompenses for the incompleteness of art and art recompense for the transience of life. Keats concludes the poem with the chiasmus, “Beauty is truth, truth beauty,” saying that art educates humans.
