Rhetorical appeals reveal the hidden message the character is trying to convey. The rhetoric also highlights the character’s emotions, feelings and the significance of the text. It allows readers to gain a better understanding of the characters. Arthur Miler, the author of The Crucible, highlights the importance of mass hysteria through rhetorical appeals. John Proctor, the tragic hero is a loyal, honest, and kind-hearted individual.
These abilities are important as a warrior because both his men and the hero reflect and are influenced by them. Some of the abilities are excellence in war, courage, leadership and fighting qualities. These qualities are seen through the heroic characters Hector and Achilles. When Achilles is not present with his men, the Greeks are well defeated by the Trojans with no motivation or support. Achilles is also described by his men as a power figure when the poem says “These were his words,/ and all Achaeans gave a roar of joy/ to hear the Prince abjure his rage.”
It was more for entertainment purposes only. Character Dr. Cooper is who i chose. He is brave and courageous. Rushing into that tomb with guns a blazing takes some serious guts to accomplish. I also like his adventurous side, Like adventuring further into the tomb just to learn more even more, though he knew how dangerous it was Evaluation
Keeffe P. pointed out that In Cold Blood also has biblical allusions “Though he was a good sentry, alert, ever ready to raise Cain, his valor had one flaw: let him glimpse a gun, as he did now-for the intruders were armed-and his head dropped, his tail turned in” (Capote 13). Cain is one of the sons of Adam and Eve, and he is a murderer because he killed his brother Abel. Truman Capote Describes the Clutter family as about “to raise Cain”. “Raise Cain” is an expression which means to raise hell. The use of the expression qualifies the previous description of the guard dog because while he is described as obedient and as a “good sentry” he flees when the intruders approach with their guns.
Two pieces of writing that give an accurate representation of the critical lens, are The Crucible written by Eric Miller, and Fahrenheit 451 written by Ray Bradbury.. Both of these pieces of writing have characters that obey their conscience and are extremely brave, each in their own way. In The Crucible a great deal of bravery is shown by many of the characters, including Rebecca Nurse, Goody Proctor, Giles Corey, and even in some ways, Marry Warren. However, the character I believe relates the most to the critical lens is John Proctor because of how his conscience takes a hold of him, and convinces him to voice his sins in order to save his wife and friends from unjust rulings.
When faced with adversity, people become stronger, wiser, and are forced to discover abilities they didn’t know they had in order to survive. Horace’s quote on the subject is absolutely correct, because adversity is what prompts people to build character. In instances such as The Professor and the Madman by Simon Winchester and the United States during World War Two, Horace was proven to be accurate in his statement. The Professor and the Madman is a brilliant non fiction novel that shows the life of Dr. William C. Minor as he faces charges of murder. Throughout the book, Minor is a man searching for his purpose in life.
In as much as Troy exhibits a villain personality throughout the play, he can also be regarded as a hero. He is at the center of the play and the main character whom the audience focuses on. There are various incidences in which Troy has portrayed his heroic nature. First and foremost, Troy is a brave and courageous individual with a wild imagniation. He is seen to courageously approach his boss and request for a driving job instead of collecting garbage like other colored persons who have fallen victims of racist influence.
The archetypes of the Hero and Hero’s Journey are repeated across many works of literature which involve the development and maturation of a previously immature character. In Homer’s The Odyssey, the characterization of Odysseus fits the hero archetype. Like a typical hero, he faces many tests and challenges on his journey, but unlike a typical hero his greatest challenge is not to defeat a monster but to reunite with his wife. He is cunning and a good strategist, making him similar to but also very different from Bilbo Baggins, from J.R.R. Tolkien’s The Hobbit.
Every story has its antagonists and protagonists, good and evil, and heroes and villains. In S.E. Hinton’s The Outsiders, the whole gang is portrayed as the protagonists, but there is one true hero. Johnny is the most heroic character in The Outsiders because on many occasions he brings himself out of his comfort zone to prove his bravery, selflessness, and loyalty towards not only his friends but strangers in need. Johnny shows qualities of a hero even in what others think is a crime.

Washington Irving, this author is famous for his great stories. Three of which are The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, Rip Van Winkle, and lastly The Devil and Tom Walker. All three of these stories are very well written, given with very much detail. One of my favorites by him would be The Devil and Tom Walker. This story was about this man named Tom and he was going through what seemed to be a war, but then came across “the devil” who in which cursed Tom.
In the epic Beowulf, the idea of good vs evil is relevant in many ways. Just like in everyday life today, Beowulf shows us different characters with good and evil natures.

This epic shows us different heroes who are good, evil villains and demons, and how the two battle each other constantly.
