In the musical Hamilton by Lin Manuel Miranda, the writer uses a variety of appeals to connect the audience of today to their past. Throughout the forty six songs used, Miranda uses many different techniques to create a deeper understanding and connection for the beginnings of America in a way a contemporary audience of today can relate to.

I felt his excitement when he met a distinguished rider and I also felt his fear when he met a drunk and nauseous rider. Also, the author is very likable and tries to relate to every person that enters his cab. In addition, Mahedy also tells about some of his own life experiences when they relate to the the rider's story. Also, the author includes YouTube links in some his stories to prove that the information he is telling is true. The only complaint I have about Uber Taxi Cab Confessions by Joe Mahedy is chapters thirty (Ten Commandments of Drivers) and thirty-one (Ten Commandments of Riders).

Even within "Tintern Abbey," Wordsworth shows an unpleasant time through his lamentation of the loss of youth. In some ways the poem refers to a crisis of passing time, maturation, and the effects of memory on "that best portion of a good man's life" (34). By claiming "all its aching joys are now no more," (85) he laments the passage of time. Memory helps to highlight the good in these times long passed. This crisis of age is eased through his utilization of the memories he has created at places like Tintern Abbey.

He yearns to feel free, to enjoy life after 10 years of intense work, a kind of bondage. I understand. And how (another sip of vodka). “Take another sip of vodka, dad,” says our son, hoping that Alan will stop bugging, lol.
