1” the most persuasive technique used is pathos, because it appeals to a man’s care for his family and self-pride. One example where pathos is used as the most persuasive technique in ‘The Crisis No. 1” is when Thomas Paine starts off the pamphlet with the quote “These are the times that try men’s souls.

At first Kino hears “…a song now, clear and soft, and if he had been able to speak of it, he would have called it the Song of the Family.” (Steinbeck, 6). Then, he thinks of all the things he can buy with the pearl: “…and the music of the pearl rose like a chorus of trumpets in his ears.” (Steinbeck, 28).
Through Mr Birling, Priestley demonstrated the life of the 1920s ‘hard-headed businessman’, influenced by greed, money and power. He shows no remorse or concern for his wrongful actions unless they affect his position in society or finances. Priestly believes that capitalism was responsible for both world wars and Mr Birling portrayed as a defiant capitalist. Priestley used Mr Birling in ‘An Inspector Calls’ to highlight the need for change in his 1946 audience if they want a peaceful, fairer, more caring future society. Priestley set his play in 1912 as it purposely contrasts to the time when he was writing in the mid-1940s.
An evolution, or change, in form from a prior being into another more mature being, or so that is the idea many believe metamorphosis is. “The Metamorphosis” provides a greater insight of what happens when this process does not necessarily progress the being into a respected and valued individual. One of the hidden messages in Franz Karka’s short story, is about portraying how isolated and taken for granted one’s hard work and dedication can be overlooked. Gregor Samsa, in the depth of his family’s financial despair, has taken the responsibility and pride of being the sole provider of his family. However, this status of power is taken away from him when he changes, or goes through metamorphosis, into a cockroach and loses his status as the

In fact, it’s like the alternative because Romeo and Juliet are allowed to be together and they never died. Further, the modern ending ended with no real lesson of their true love, but showed how the dads can cooperated and make peace. In this situation, Montague and Capulet worked together to create a plan that had worked, but also making their children happy. Modern Romeo and Juliet may not be as involved with drama as the original, but they sure do find a way back to each other. As well as a cost of humor which came from the kidnapper in the end.
The use of imagery here clearly tells the reader that the clothes he is wearing gives away who he really is. Instead of a experienced hunter look that he tries to copy from Wilson, he looks out of place. Hemingway also uses this description to build up his character to the readers only to be discouraged when Hemingway calls him a coward. Francis’ wife is one figure in his life that has a big negative impact in how he acts and the way he presents himself. Mrs. Macomber tends to treat to her husband in a way that makes the reader feel that this marriage has anything but love and support.
Their distancing during the development of the novel shows that they truly do not love each other for their qualities as people but the quality of their pockets and their name.

With Huck’s outsider’s perspective Twain shows us hypocrisy in common society. Every time Huck (and by extension the reader) starts to agree with a particular ideology of a group of people, every time Twain starts to develop a theme (such as the importance of family or religion, brotherhood, community), Twain addresses the problems with such idealisms in his estimation. Take, for example, Chapter 17’s ‘the Grangerford and Shepherdson episode’. Huck come to be with a kind and rich family and does genuinely think about staying there for a while as they seem perfect and really show the importance of family to Huck… it was not meant to be. On a walk with a Grangerford, someone from the Sherpeson family… and the Grangerford attempts to shoot the Shepardson for no apparent reason.
