By placing their trust in language or action, their choices determine their outlook. Cora takes language at face value and trusts in the meaning behind words. Addie distrusts language on its own and requires action to believe in what words mean to express. In “’As I Lay Dying’: Family Conflict and Verbal Fictions,” John Earl Bassett states, “Human experience and interaction require language” (126). Addie gives strong evidence to support her need for deeds and belief that words cannot encompass the importance of experience.
This would be further reinforced when she goes into details about the effects of the migraine, which the reader could also relate to. When Didion then states that there is “nothing wrong with [her] at all”, she could word it to be a warning to the reader. By adding “and there won’t be anything wrong with you, either” would cause her to be speaking directly to the reader, comforting them that although the doctors may not find something wrong, there actually is a problem. She then describes how she continued her life, “ignor[ing] the warnings it sent”, instead of trying to fix the problem. While she presents this example as one that can be learned from, she could still present it in a more direct way to this new audience.
She provides enough personal experience, and critique of herself, to be able to question the others in the field without coming across as rude. She makes her point of the importance of cultural resources and the need for the better relations between archaeologists and the native peoples, in relation to artifacts. She makes the article easy to read, and covers many different point of views. She proves her thesis by providing personal examples of how she has failed other natives, while also providing other examples of shortfalls, such as the possible misuse of Devils Tower, and Zuni War gods sculptures . The article provides enough information to support her thesis, and while the main theme seems to be toward fellow colleagues, she makes the article interesting for the general
Overall, it is a well written essay, she uses a lot of strong words and emotion to show how it affected her. She shared her own experience which made her very credible and likeable because she wasn't making any of this up. Even though she could have used a lot of facts on how many women are affected, what age group reports the most, where you most likely to be assaulted and more. There are many sources out there for her to use. The essay was easy to follow nothing was confusing, but there were some repeated words and other experiences.
For instance, one of the things she learned was that people were kind and forgiving when you really need it. “You never know when and where you will find a spot of human decency.” This evidence from the text is essential because Ahmedi learns that when someone really needs the help, another person is willing to give help to them. Plus, Ahmedi learns that she can bring out all of her strength hidden deep down in her body. That is a good because she can do something if she really tried. “I was walking quite will that day… I scrambled up like a goat.” This information is important because it tells Ahmedi that she can do something if she really believes it.
Although she can be characterized as fundamentally flawed, she is still content with herself. This comparison helps a reader develop a greater understanding of the characters’ origins and could not be made without knowledge of the author’s
Conversely to stanza 2, stanza 4 starts with repetition of the phrase “the way the” showing observation and insight of her surroundings, nevertheless time implying that the reader knows what she’s talking about because it was beyond words. Overall, in the contrasting tones it is clear what Oliver was more passionate about. If you do what you’re passionate about, if you’re happy with what you’ve accomplished, then that’s true
An additional linkage exists in that Pearl possesses similar artistic abilities to her mother, however Pearl’s artistry always involves nature. Hawthorne describes how nature calls to Pearl, “and to please them, Pearl gathered the violets, and anemones, and columbines, and some twigs of freshest green…With these she decorated her hair and her young waist” (115). Hence, similar to her mother’s flair for stitching, Pearl possesses an uncanny flair for adorning herself with innumerable items found in nature. Hester’s stunning “A” symbolizes her ostracism; likewise Pearl’s adornment of nature symbolizes her ostracism from society as well. Hawthorne develops a relationship between Pearl
She supplements her article with anecdotes from her own childhood and family members. Thes memories enable her to establish a connection with her audience and as such her pathos appeal is significant. Her educational background and intimate knowledge of the subject matter enables her to explore ways of convincing the audience. On the other hand, Gray’s position is lacking in the use of pathos since it is essentially a bashing of the Prime Minister’s apology speech. The feature is riddling with facts and figures which are not likely to dissuade the audience to her personal point of view.
To be happy, Doherty argues, one must be neither too controlling nor too controlled; and sometimes the only way to gain perspective on one’s sense of control is to lose control for a while. Nurse Betty Black is a control freak. In the opening scene, she reacts to news of her infertility by steering the conversation—about ways she has tried to control her
This seemed a bit obvious or maybe she saw she could have and would do more for the victims she let die. I also understood that in most cases when the morphine was injected, no one stayed with the patient until they passed. They died scared and painfully alone. She changed the ways we will handle a tragic day that was Katrina. LifeCare was irresponsible.
c. How does the author demonstrate ethos? The author creates ethos by clearly connecting with the audience. Riordan is writing about the looks she and her friends directly get because they are disabled. Therefore, the author establishes a sense of confidence and credibility to her piece. d. Does the author use any other rhetorical appeals.
How she relayed the message to the readers were very smart in the fact that she was unbiased. This was an article that anyone could read and it wasn’t just pointed to a particular group of people. Her personal experiences throughout the story made us sympathize for her, which is another great tactic that she used. Her tone throughout the story are both defensive and sympathetic which, again, pull you into the story even further. Ultimately, I do think that the message that Balsamo was trying to make came across to the readers.
