The writer proved the point with relatable dialogs and an anecdote to let readers visualize a plausible situation. The author also connected this argument with argument #2 to demonstrate her point made before. Argument #4: “Women's conversational habits are as frustrating to men as men’s are to women” (Tanner 19).

I believe that the critical lens that provides modern society with the most compelling view of literature is Feminist Criticism because it analyzes distrust and disloyalty among relationships, women being treated as possessions and shows the representation of powerful women. Modern society would analyze literature using a feminist perspective because most literature analyzes the relationship between genders and the powerful influence and meaning it has to the readers life. Othello is a great play to analyze with many different types of literature criticisms, but Feminist Criticism analyzes the plot and the main characters situation most. It is still so common to see many of the points presented in the book till this day, men believing that they are stronger than women and treating them as inferior. Even so women are trying to make their voice be heard and demonstrating everyday the vital impact they have in society.
As she elaborates on her idea of how women should be displayed she refers to a book called The Body Project, an intimate history of girls by Joan Jacobs Brumberg to gain credibility and build up her argument, that way the audience will realize that there is a problem that is occurring. Lipkin agrees with Joan’s idea of how girls body parts have become a “project” to fix and mold. By having Brumberg’s opinion in the essay and Lipkin elaborating on those ideas it shows that Lipkin has a concerned attitude and allows her tone to be consistent throughout her entire essay. Lipkin also uses rhetorical strategies that are blended together to support her evidence the strategies used are ethos, pathos, and
Sanders displays his change in viewpoints through masterful uses of interior dialogue. This literary technique allows the reader to understand what the narrator is thinkinging as events unfold in front of him.

Staples creates an emotional approach with his use of anecdotes and diction in order to be able to connect with the readers on a more personal level. Staples uses anecdotes throughout his writing to provide real world experiences of his own life. The opening paragraph of the writing paints an image into the reader’s mind of a woman as “[s]he cast[s] back a worried glance.” This image alone allows Staples to connect with his reader by showing what he saw first-hand. This anecdote creates a sense of sympathy and pity for Staples from the reader, which, consequently, builds their trust for him. Furthermore, Staples uses gloomy diction throughout the writing to create a sense of dread when approaching the subject of black men in public places.
Also throughout the book Ozment presents several morals that are not normally viewed when looking at historical records. Ozment does a great job of creating a narrative about a woman's struggle against social prejudice and the justice system because of the way he sets up the story. At the beginning of the story he introduces the reader to the main character, Anna, and makes the reader have a strong understanding about her childhood. Throughout the narrative Ozment does a great job of demonstrating
One of these perspectives is analyzing communication through gender. In the book, You Just Don’t Understand, Deborah Tannen (1990) popularized the term “genderlect” to describe the way in which men and women communicate with each other. She suggested that men and women have different styles of conversing, forming two distinct dialects. In a review of Tannen’s book, DeFrancisco (1992) attributed the differing communication styles of men and women to the respective cultures in which they grow up. Because of such gender differences, misunderstanding between men and women creates a gap in the communication process.
These reasons explain why overall, Steinem does a very good job of persuading the reader to think differently about the perception of women’s strength. Throughout this essay, Steinem uses various rhetorical claims in order to establish credibility.
