His uses of the persuasive language of logos helps to explain that African Americans have waited too long to receive the freedom they very well deserved. This evokes sympathy in the clergymen and makes them realize a change must occur. On the contrary, King utilizes emotional appeal to explain to the church officials that the way African Americans were treated does not deserve praise: “I doubt that you would so quickly commend the policemen…if you were to observe them, as they did on two occasions, refuse to give us food because we wanted to sing out grace together, I cannot join you in your praise of the Birmingham police department” (para. 44). King implements the use of emotional appeal to convince his readers of clergymen that the Birmingham police force does not treat African Americans who were peacefully protesting as they
When frontmen of Breaking Benjamin Ben Burnley had an interview and been asked which Breaking Benjamin’s song new listener needs to hear first, he answered: “I would probably play you “I Will Not Bow” - because it’s one of the few very, very positive Breaking Benjamin songs - there’s a lot of negative songs but that one has a lot of energy and it has a good message.” Even though it is considered one of the most positive of their songs, it is evident that it’s message is not so optimistic. For instance the use of metaphor here: “And I 'll survive; paranoid/ I have lost the will to change”. This song is not about a person who almost died and now lost the will to change something. However these words mean that in this spoiled world people have lost their faith and desire to

John Milton utilizes Biblical allusions to convey his evaluation of how his life has been lived or how his time has been spent. The poet especially contemplates his life’s contributions considering his physical state of blindness. Milton wonders whether or not he is using his abilities for God’s utmost glory. He longs to do more, but feels that his disability holds him back. At the beginning of the poem, Milton’s fleshly thinking allows him to believe that God expects us to go out and do physical works with our hands, and because he is not capable, then there is no way that he is pleasing God.
This led him to wish that his brother was different, and when seeing the opportunity he decided to help his brother walk. Although this may seem as if it was a compassionate and helpful act, the narrator did all of these things not for the well-being of his brother, but instead for himself. In the text, it describes, “They did not know that I did it for myself; that pride, whose slave I was, spoke to me louder than all their voices, and that Doodle walked only because I was ashamed of having a crippled brother.”(Hurst 389). This quote reveals the narrator’s true feelings and the selfishness that hid behind his righteous deeds. Also, the narrator selfishly became mad after not achieving his goal he had set with his brother.
Nevertheless, the last two lines of the poem are the most blatant indicators of the speaker’s regret. Everything else in the poem has only been hinting at the speaker’s realization of his childish ignorance, but he explicitly states that he didn’t understand the more understated ways of expressing love in the last two lines. Repetition serves as a powerful tool for amplifying the pain and regret felt by the speaker, as he openly criticizes his past self for thinking he had his father figured out without searching deeper. The son knows he can’t go back in time and teach himself the “austere,” or harsh, and “lonely offices,” meaning roles, of love. A parent’s love is mostly subtle, and his lack of understanding that as a child is something he can never take back.
Also, during that time people labeled him as “Wacko Jacko”. So, you can tell that he was having a really rough time. However, what better way to counter these rumors through his amazing singing talents? He also reminded people that he cared about the people around him. Also, he wanted to regain his image of that young sweet boy who had a dream he wanted to accomplish and that somewhere along the way people forgot about that.
In these first four words of the poem Hughes is perhaps trying to depict a person that is wanting to be recognized. This person is tired of being overlooked stating “look at me I am here and I count, pay attention to me I have been ignored but now is my time to speak”. The singing mentioned could either be interpreted as a joyful or sorrowful outcry. The poem continues, “I am the darker brother.” (2). The “darker brother” that is mentioned could be left up to interpretation, and is possibly pointing out that all people that are not white are affected.
