Language is powerful, and can even mean the difference between life and death. This proves to be true in Tobias Wolff’s short story “Bullet in the Brain,” in which he makes a point about criticism and language. The main character is Anders. His profession as a book critic is essential to the story because he deals with language every day. He even ridicules bank robbers who point a gun at him because their language is stereotypical.
I want to smash his face in. I want to shout smash is face in!.” I want to see blood spurt out from Mr. Wingfield high ranking nose. “ This shows that Samuel is aggressive because he wants to see other people hurt. Later in the book it shows that Samuel is aggressive when Samuel and Richard were fighting and the author states“ His cheeks are swollen and one of his eyes is turning purple. I am proud of my handiwork” Sameral is aggressive because he doesn 't like when people annoy himself or tease him.
Anger is experienced by almost all characters in Hamlet on and off throughout the play, but in the finale, more anger and hate is displayed there than in all the collective of the Tragedy of Hamlet acts combined. Dan Ariely continues to deduce that, the concept of being impassioned can severely affect our decisions in the heat of the moment and what we deem as acceptable (133). The majority of anger is displayed primarily by Hamlet himself once he is given his chance to display his anger in its entirety, which culminates with him killing Laertes and Claudius in Hamlet’s immense state of anger. Dan Ariely makes an adequate representation of how self-control and immediate gratification for our actions play a big part in how individuals can be so irrational (157). Hamlet’s truly embodies the concept of the appeal of immediate gratification in that during the final scene of fighting, he commits actions that he may not have had he not been so immensely affected by his emotions, particularly the sting of anger.
You disarm it,” was a way to express how some people deal with hatred and relate it to indifference. Asyndeton is strong in the speech too; when Wiesel defined indifference, he stated a list of differences without a conjunction to imply that differences are all around us. This device was also used when he listed victims of indifference to communicate that there are more types of victims than he could name. Caesura was the most prevalent device throughout the speech and was used to grab attention and bring emotions out of people. By asking frequent rhetorical questions, Wiesel was able to make his audience think about their own actions and question their
Rainsford becomes the new general of ship trap island. There are many theories to explain why this is true like he is more violent throughout the story and he is very similar to General Zaroff. Rainsford becomes the new general of Ship Trap island because he becomes more violent over the course of the story. “ ‘Do not make me condone cold-blooded murder,’ finished Rainsford stiffly.”This quote is taken from the middle of the story before the game starts. At this point of the story, clearly Rainsford is not okay with murder.
Was Dante suicidal? This seems like a silly question to ask, but it seems to be supported by the very text that he wrote. Suicide is a touchy topic. Suicide is also a very important topic in life and in the Inferno. Dante put them in the Inferno rather than in Purgatorio, he pities the souls that commited suicide, and he gives the souls what they wanted in life and through death.
In her essay, “Sizing Up the Effects”, Professor Sissela Bok states the harmful effects of aggressive media and accents her informational argument with scholarly accounts of emotion in order to grab both the hearts and heads of her audience. Bok references a study done on homicidal men and says “What is most startling about the most violent people is how incapable they are… of feeling love, guilt, or fear.”, shortly after she takes a quote from Macbeth “I am in blood. Stepp’d in so far that, should I wade no more, Returning were as tedious as go o’er.” By including these hard hitting, poetic pieces she stimulates a new part of each audience member, a personal element is introduced making all of her given information apply on a deeper level.
It was very obvious how angry he was. When he was telling one of his stories, he used a very proud tone and spoke faster, more excitedly. He used his hands a lot to help tell the story, and they seemed to be moving quite fast. He also faced a lot more to the audience to help get a reaction out of them and to establish a connection with them so that his death is even more emotional, which seemed to always work. As Edward got sicker, he started speaking less, and it was always quieter and slower, with pauses between lots of his words.
The book is very fast paced and for people unfamiliar with the Lincoln assassination can seem very riveting. The pace is given praise by Brian Odom when he claims that Killing Lincoln is a “fast paced, enthralling narrative that unfolds more like a true-crime” (Odom). The pictures of those involved in these historical events help to clarify and to paint the scene. The maps also help people that are unfamiliar of the geography in and around Washington, understand the layout of the area around the capitol city. Killing Lincoln is quite fast paced and functions well to an audience that is looking to simply familiarize themselves with the events of Lincoln’s death.
In Othello, many people turn to race when they are frustrated or angry thus making the play racist. Throughout the play many show great respect for Othello, but as soon as the war ends internal conflicts arise, giving the characters more time to notice race and aggravate one another. This switch from war to peace is crucial in the play because if the war had continued race would not have been an issue. The war discontinuing allowed hatred and discovery of each character sparking the time to think and plot events. Iago 's hatred comes from Othello chosing Cassio as the lieutenant when he had no experience in war through Igao’s perspective.
Levitt and Dubner start right off the bat using a rhetorical strategy called appeal to pity by very vividly listing the things the Ku Klux Klan did to their victims. This strategy makes us think about how terrible those the things they did are now and how it would be front page news if any of those things happened to any person nowadays. Once our emotions are conjured up and in tune, us as readers are more likely to agree with what the authors have to say. If Levitt and Dubner did not want us to
The majority of this article is emotion appeals. The author draws the conclusion that the way the Republican leaders in the United States are responding to this refugee situation is a way of repeating history. The number inferences made between the current situation and the Holocaust pull at the audience’s emotions. The Holocaust is such an powerful part of history with extreme hate and tragedy that at the mere mention of the word “Holocaust” emotions are being affected. The author furthers this tug at emotions by mentioning the story of St. Louis, reminding the us that United States has turned away people in need before and forced them into a death by ignoring their need for help.
A human thrives off of attention, even the shy introvert begs for it. Most Americans and people around the world watch other people make history and become infamous for acts of courage and acts of deceit.
