Rhetorical Analysis Of Nature By Ralph Waldo Emerson

Good Essays
Things can be seen different in many perspectives. It can be interpreted in ways others can’t see. But in order to regulate and adjust our lives, to show the meaning of what we see, we need the solitude to consolidate our thoughts and see things that were hidden in the first place. In “Nature,” Ralph Waldo Emerson applies rhetorical strategies for instance the imagery of unity and the allusion of God to experience the nature in solitude. Emerson starts off his piece with imagery of the unity between man and nature. He personifies nature: “Nature says-he is my creature, and maugre all his impertinent griefs, he shall be glad with me.” (Emerson 91) This connects humanity with nature as if we exist as equal, as if we are dependent on each other.
