By concluding with the resilient Kenny Dobbins, Schlosser gives the reader Kenny’s entire story which becomes more and more appalling as they read on. The author’s reason behind the conclusion of the chapter is to express the worst stories of slaughterhouse employees that become so shocking the stories themselves can be seen as unbelievable, but are sadly true; Schlosser uses the most dramatic story to portray how atrocious the owners of the slaughterhouses are, the story is used to justify his arguments against the slaughterhouses and is proven with the careless treatment the corporations have toward their own employees. Chapter 9: Analyze how Schlosser combines logical and emotional appeals in this chapter to create an effective message. In other words, how does he manage all this scientific data, making it easier to understand and read? Cite specific strategies such as diction, analogy, facts, and cause and
To massacre!” (Villaseñor 21). The use of hyperbole in this statement emphasizes that he hated teachers who destroyed his self-confidence. It also affects readers emotionally because it dramatizes the intensity of his thoughts. Surely, the thoughts of killing a massive group of generalized people does not cause alarm. Those who read about hearts being ripped out and responding with extreme vengeance can see the tremendous effect that these teachers had on him.
However, the subject matter is a decomposing carcass with “so frightful… the stench” (15). The speaker also goes into great detail about the carcass, likening it to a woman, as previously mentioned. Later in the poem, Baudelaire takes the blason a step further: the speaker departs from his first comparison to proclaim that his lover will one day be like the carcass as well: “—And yet you will be like this corruption, / Like this horrible infection” (37-38). He uses various terms of endearment, including “Star of my eyes” and “sunlight of my being” to gild his words (39). While the terms of endearment may sound like flattery, in truth, the speaker’s true message is his lover’s death and decomposition.
I finally realized Daisy had a huge impact in this book because of the article written by Leland Person Jr. called “Herstory” and Daisy Buchanan. In the first paragraph of the essay, Person explained what other people thought of Daisy Buchanan, “To Robert Ornstein she is criminally amoral, and Alfred Kazin judges her vulgar and inhuman” (250). Person responds to these claims by stating what he believes Daisy really is, “Daisy, in fact, is more victim than victimizer” (250). Person emphasizes that even though many people believe Daisy was evil, she actually should not be faulted because she was the one that was the victim. These findings have important consequences for the broader domain of world perspective.
The poem “Battlefield” by August Stramm uses imagery to depict the destruction that the human body can take. On the bodies, “bloods clot the patches where they oozed, rusts crumble, fleshes slime, sucking lusts around decay” (Stramm). The bodies are disgusting and completely disfigured and with every blink, there is more and more death. Similarly, the poem “Dulce Et Decorum Est” by Wilfred Owen also portrays the repulsive circumstances that the body is put under. Described is a man’s “hanging face, like a devil’s sick of sin… the blood come gargling from the froth-corrupted lungs, obscene as cancer, bitter as the cud of vile, incurable sores on innocent tongues” (Owen).
30-31). Lady Macbeth hallucinates these spots due to her overwhelming guilt over the murders of Banquo, Macduff's family and King Duncan. These spots symbolize the permanent stain of what they have both done and how it cannot be undone. Blood is an adamant symbol throughout the entire play. It symbolizes the horrible violence and deeds executed by Macbeth that Lady Macbeth is suffering from.
He describes Mary screaming, “ as though infected,” while the girls cower, “as though” they had been cursed. (118) These similes paint a detailed picture of the scene, intensifying the craziness and depicting the mass hysteria in the courtroom. Mary, due to Miller’s directing, embodies the sense of fear driving the panic of the scene. She sustains the wildness of all previous allegations through her exclamation that John Proctor is, “the Devil’s man.”(118) Miller uses Mary’s accusation to add drama, as well as a new dimension of suspicion, to the situation. All of these powerful emotions combine to reach a point of utter hysteria.
“I, the miserable and the abandoned, am an abortion, to be spurned at, and kicked, and trampled on.” –Frankenstein As he stood over the corpse of his creator, Victor Frankenstein, the monster uttered these words, not in a remorseful manner bur rather in a self-pitiful way. Frankenstein becomes self aware of the crimes he had commited, that of which caused distress upon almost all the indivuals around him. The monster however, could have simply been driven to insanity by the feeling of uselessness and disregard that he felt. Internally he was suffering
Restricting knowledge is the first step toward a society much like the one presented in The Giver by Lois Lowry. The book satirizes censorship and shows the potential threat it would bring to the global population. Although the theme of the novel is the danger that censorship creates and lack of individualism, the uninformed still protest its reading based on the belief of the presence of sexual ideas and violent themes. This is the irony of
In a forum created to discuss the book, we witness a large array of comments expressing fear that this kind of publication is harming the image of Walloon as a valid language, reducing his richness to a subset of offensive epithets, but anger is also recurrent in the comments. It appears that Walloon speakers feel resentment against this type of work as it perpetuates a specific and restricting vision of their language (c). (c) This comment ideally comprises both apprehension and criticism “Gn-a d’djà âssèz d’djins qui critiq’nut l’walon! Adon, pou z-aprinde dès man.nèstès èt dès djurons ...”1, here the user clearly expresses concerns that this kind of book will not help to improve the collective representations of Walloon, and frustration is also discernible in his discourse. To sum things up, derogatory comments regarding an alleged vulgarity of Walloon are scarce in the corpus, however, a significant number of users feels the urge to affirm that Walloon is neither rude nor vulgar, and a publication of a dictionary of swear words brings forward an overall uneasiness among speakers, even though the publication of a book about Walloon might be a source of joy rather than fear.
The selection I am choosing to analyze from The Fire This Time is the introduction. The introduction is Jesmyn Ward explaining her motives for creating this astonishing book. Ward wants her readers to know how not only herself, but others feel about racial issues that are still very prominent in today’s society. Ward begins by talking about the death of Trayvon Martin. This particular event sparked Ward’s rationale to write The Fire This Time.
Kathleen Parker’s article entitled “Tea Party has Steeped too Long for the Nation’s Good” is a admonishment of the Tea-Party for their failure (specifically through John Boehner) to raise the debt-ceiling. Parker’s motive behind this article is to convince the public of the kind of poltical dangers the Tea-Party presents and of the need to oust it from government. To do this, Parker employs blistering, cynical, admonitory tone behind her rhetoric, complaining of the Tea-Party’s hubris and incompetence, in general. But while the technical failings of the Tea-Party are clear in Parker’s opinion piece, what is more apparent are the character flaws of the party, itself. A further analysis of contents to this article will make this point clearer.
This resulted in his beheading in the Tower of London. In addition, it saw him become a main opponent of the Protestant Reformation. More’s main issues with the Reformation fell under his concern for peace and unity in the Church. He felt that Luther did not have the authority to make the claims that he did against the English Crown (which Luther did), and also showed concern that the Reformation movement would end up bringing about a lot of violence for England (which it did). As part of this conflict, the two would occasionally trade letters to each other where they would call each other names such as “pig”, “dolt”, “liar”, “ape”, “drunkard”, and “lousy little friar”; in addition to writing theological responses to one another (More on behalf of the English Crown).
In “The Black Cat” Poe writes, “Goaded, by the interference, into a rage more than demoniacal, I withdrew my arm from her grasp and buried the axe in her brain,” when talking about the savage murder of the wife. This narrative is cringe worthy because it would be absolutely excruciating to have an axe driven into one’s skull. Edgar Allan Poe details the nasty specifics of the torture and murder of Fortunato in “The Cask of Amontillado” when Montresor chains Fortunato in the chamber filled with niter and walls up the entrance, torturing and leaving Fortunato to die from whatever lethal element can stop his heart first. . This is brutal because Montresor says, “I heard the furious vibration of the chain.
