In the poem “Ballad of Birmingham’’ written by Dudley Randal, some fellow peers might disagree with his ways of figurative captivation that he uses about the tragic events displayed to his audience, but believe it or not, there might be a few reasons behind this occurrence- and why it may have surpassed us all.

In this excerpt, Samuel Johnson’s feelings about dictionary writers is are very strong, in a sense that he has a direct emotional appeal on the reader about how they, the dictionary writers, are often neglected. In this essay, I will focus on two rhetorical terms - ‘asyndeton’ and, from Aristotle’s Three Appeals, ‘Pathos’ or emotion. The idea coming from these two terms have a profound impact on Johnson’s writing. Overall, the tone is a mix between sad and mad.
During the 18th century, Britain prided themselves with their constitution and individual liberty, however their economy was heavily based on the slave trade. During this time the triangular trade was in place and was transporting 40,000 African Americans on this horrific journey to the New World in exchange for goods such as tobacco, rum, etc. The Romantic poets during this time had a major impact on this matter and in 1780 most of the major poets were writing for this cause. With the help of these romantics who brought up many debates, the Emancipation bill was enacted in 1833 and freed about 800,000 slaves. The autobiography of a man named Olaudah Equiano had a great impact on the abolition of slavery, where in his autobiography he

The boy she likes has this girlfriend who is nasty to him and doesn’t understand him like she does. Given away from the song title, Swift believe that her friend belongs with her.

Some people view Janie as a woman who should be dependent on her husband, following the traditional roles of women, being satisfied with her life as the less powerful sex. Janie should follow the stereotypical, traditional role women follow, where “men are encouraged… to place [themselves] at the center… while women are forced to center around and serve the needs” of others (Ellison 98). The main goal of women is to take care of the family and the home. Janie, including all other women around the world should be satisfied with her life as the less powerful sex. “A gulf of inequality between men and women… establishes men’s superiority and normative status” (Ellison 98). “The women actively participated in their part of the work, therefore, they complement the men’s part” (Gonzalez 32). This is seen when “the men hunt game and the women clean and dry the meat. The women are

He uses all three effectively, however pathos has the greatest effect out of all three rhetorical strategies.

In “The Pastoralization of Housework” by Jeanne Boydston, Boydston explores the effect of the romanization of housework. The pastoralization of housework that occurred during the Antebellum period was the result of the development of early industrialization. In order to have something remain constant in the changing times the formation of two separate gender spheres allowed a routine to an ever changing society. A result of these two spheres was the pastoralization of domestic labor in the early 1800s that made labor ‘invisible’ and began to discredit the women’s work at home, but also raised them to a higher pedestal in the family dynamic. By embracing the idea of True Motherhood women were able to flourish by the naturalization of the social
