In the passage, Nancy Mairs, who has multiple sclerosis, calls herself “a cripple.” Mairs presents herself in the passage by using rhetorical features such as tone, word choice, and rhetorical structure. Among other vocabulary possibilities, she specifically choose cripple to be the word that describes her. Why she choose this word, she wasn’t really sure. Perhaps because the word cripple doesn't hide the truth from the outside: “ I have long since grown accustomed to them; and if they are vague, at least they hint at the truth.” Perhaps she uses the word “cripple” to show that her conditions is more severe for it to be described as “handicapped” or “disabled.” The rhetorical feature she used was tone; it showed that she has already accepted
By using all three points of view the reader is able to see all the different perspectives and gain an understanding of everyone in the book. It also helps readers be able to see what Zusak is trying to tell them. The different tones allow people to see the different sides of Death and understand how he views the world. “It kills me sometimes, how people die” (464). By using first person confessional people are able to see Death in a new way, it shows his emotions and makes him more humanized.
Joan Didion is an author who was part of the New Journalism movement during the 1960s and ‘70s which was a change from the traditional styles (Rustin 1). As a member of the New Journalism movement, Didion used stories and real-life events to explore sensational events that occurred in the sixties and seventies. Using imagery to centralize her ideas, Didion boldly informs the reader on the subject of morality and gets him/her engaged with the text. Didion’s use of gruesome imagery resonates with the idea of survival-based morality because in the most physically painful and emotional situations, people are defined by the actions they take. Joan Didion positions her view by providing symbolic imagery including the blazing desert, the nurse who travels one-hundred and eighty miles of mountain road for an injured girl, the sheriff’s deputies who search for a kid, and the painting by Hieronymous Bosch illustrating the diverse concept of morality, all which construct the exaggeratingly annoyed tone of the essay and deliver an idea that survival is central to morality.
Such approach of conveying the vital information to the audience is fairly useful as evokes different feelings which in fact urge to read more on the presented topic. That is because the given statistics is taken from the credible sources and that in turn, makes it appropriate enough within the provided context. Moreover, Beaty, in order to appeal to her readers, uses pathos while explaining a variety of emotional behaviors. In particular, the author introduces a number of killers, including John Wayne Gacy, Ted Bundy, and Jeffrey Dahmer. By doing this, she analyses their psychopathic tendencies developed from abusive families in which they have not received enough love and care.
They were absolutely moving, inspiring and hauntingly beautiful. I could relate to some of the struggles within the text as I struggle with eating issues as well. So the way she wrote about such difficulties was therapeutic for me. Her work truly spoke to me and resonated with me on many levels. I handed them in because I was to insecure about my own work, but I learned that everyone has its own style of writing, and nothing is right or wrong.
The career offers pros and cons, it offers a chance to help injured animals and other peoples peace of mind, but there can be a lot of stress and sadness in the career.

Agatha Christie uses characterization and conflicts in the story to teach the theme. Of course the major conflict, guests vs. killer is what is the main thing used to portray theme and is the most effective but the smaller, minor conflicts also help out. The internal conflict Vera has with her guilt is also meant to show that punishment is inevitable. when Vera kills Lombard her guilt over her past crime overwhelms her and Hugo drives her to commit suicide. Christie also uses characterization to enhance the theme.
In future speeches, I want to be able to give a speech without feeling nervous or awkward. I need to learn how to stay focus and not get off track while presenting my speech or story. One way I can fix this issue is by organizing my ideas clearly on loose leaf or index cards. By writing out my ideas I will have a better chance of remembering what to say while presenting. My speech would look better prepared and well organized allowing me to perform it in a comfortable manner.
These reviews I have seen are mostly positive. One of the reviews says it should be read and loved by everyone. (Jack London’s Naturalism) The review says this because the story shows a odd but lovable hero that in the end if he believes and tries his best in the end he can achieve his goals and live the life he would want to live. Another review says that it is really good but is not for young animal lovers. (Call of the Wild- Book Review) It says this because in the story the hero has to do some bad things like rip out other dogs or even humans jugulars to save himself or some of his new found friends, but in the end the review still says it is a really good book.
