The most effective rhetorical appeal used in the passage was logos and pathos. King used reasoning and experiences to try to persuade the clergymen or ministers, to bring unity and pacifism. In his applauding and jaw dropping letter, he writes from jail, to the ministers about his aspect on racism and segregation. Additionally, King uses allusion to refer to unconventional events in the past, that support his work. For example, in the letter he speaks of Apollo Paul.
Worse than Slavery, by David Oshinsky, is a novel about post-Civil War America, and the life it gave free African Americans in Mississippi and other parts of the South. Oshinsky writes about the strict laws and corrupt criminal justice system blacks faced after they were freed, and while the contents of the book are not typically read about in history textbooks, it is important to understand what life was like for the freedman. Anyone interested in reading his book would profit from it. With the end of the Civil War came the destruction of the old system of slavery. Many white Southerner’s were outraged, but were forced to accept the newly freed blacks.
Well correct me if I’m wrong but it sounded like you were concerned that other inmates would stop being your friends. So you in return ignored everyone because you were unsure if you could trust anyone. When this random inmate talked to you and realized you were absent you unconsciously thought that not all inmates would stop being friends with you? This is just a thought but I just want to know what you think?
Corresponding ideas and uses of rhetorical devices can bridge together multiple stories. The themes of interdependence on other human beings and essentials of life are shown throughout the novels “102 Minutes” by Jim Dwyer and Kevin Flynn, and “Into the Wild” by Jon Krakauer. One may think that these pieces have nothing in common, but in order to interpret the overlying ideas, readers must look deeper than the main ideas of each book to figure out how they develop upon one another. The stories “Into the Wild,” and “102 Minutes” both use a plentiful amount of overarching viewpoints and many of the same tools of rhetoric, such as word choice, delivery and style to help expand and make connections between novels. Jon Krakauer’s purpose for “Into
As Nelson Mandela once said, "Education is the most powerful weapon which you can use to change the world.” Donovan Livingston, a graduate at Harvard Graduate School of Education, has similar views on education. His passionate and inspiring speech called “Lift Off” was given at HGSE’s Commencement Ceremony on May 25, 2016. The speech discusses the importance of education as well as the obstacles and injustices students, especially those of color, have experienced throughout history in getting an education. Livingston’s graduating classmates who are becoming teachers, as well as teachers and educators in general, are the audience of his speech.
In Eudora Welty’s “A Worn Path,” Welty discusses the very lengths an individual is willing to go to in the name of love. The protagonist, Phoenix, an elderly black woman, takes a long and treacherous journey from the countryside to the nearest city, all in hopes of collecting medicine for her sick grandson. Welty’s characterization of Phoenix conveys a tone of perseverance; the character battles many negative forces of the wilderness throughout the story, but despite this, Phoenix’s reaction to her surroundings is one of a pleasant tone. In Welty’s “A Worn Path,” Welty uses contrasting diction and a lexicon that conveys layers of both dark and light storytelling, while Phoenix, a woman of great strength and tenacity, despite her age, defies all odds through her
The working conditions of the 1800s were very harsh on the employees. They would be burning hot in the summer and in the winter the employees would be freezing cold. The workers would get caught in the machines. They would have long working hours, for example, they would work approximately 11.4 hours a day. The workers would get tired and by the end of the day, more accidents would happen.
During my years of being a scholar most of my writings have come mainly from research papers. My teachers would either assign a research topic or you could choose your own. Sometimes we even got readings or books that we would have to read and write a paper on. This past semester I took English 1001 and typed papers I had never learned to do before and I also learned how to do an annotated bibliography. These papers were papers like visual and rhetorical analysis.
There are currently around 37,000 prisoners in Australia and over 2, 200, 000 in America, populations that have both been increasing greatly in the past decade. 1 2 Therefore more people every year face the immediate concern of rebuilding life, upon release from correctional facilities, and the stigma that will follow them forever. It is the government’s duty to make the transition from prison to society as effective as possible, and to help prisoners become active members of society. Although both America and Australia have strategies that function both inside and out of prisons there are many flaws that are present in these systems. One thing both countries have realised is that it is important to start the process of reintegration
Nalini Nadkarni’s TED Talk, Life Science in Prison, argues that change is possible in a prison system. She uses trees as a metaphor for prisons to suggest that trees are dynamic entities rather than static objects, and that this reformative thinking can also be applied to prison systems. Nadkarni advocates for change because inmates are confined behind bars in small cells, and the number of prisoners and reoffending individuals in America is rising. The intended audience for this TED Talk is individuals who are receptive to change, but also who have the power to generate movement in society’s institutions through their education, money, and social influence. In Life Science in Prison, Nadkarni critically evaluates static systems in society and within individuals, and successfully convinces audiences to reimagine movement and transform their thinking.
