He goes in depth about some of the scenery around him on the beach, like the bloody abandoned shoes, broken-handled shovel, and smashed radios. Pyle chose this organization for his article because the audience needed to be eased into the picture of death and destruction. Pyles builds ethos by showing himself to be sensitive to needs of the audience because he has to be gentle for the people of loved ones that’ll read his article with tears in their eyes. Pyles also uses examples of pathos in his article. He shares the sacrifices of all the soldiers he is seeing upon the beach shore, all while honoring them.
He uses parallelism to move straight to the point by exposing that he himself had gone through the pain of seeing white men celebrate the event in which he himself had only seen sorrows “The sunlight that brought light and healing to you has brought stripes and death for me” (P.3). He fuc disengages himself from the audience and presents his k past by saying “ [...]brought stripes and death to me.” This use of parallelism of Douglass has brought a haunting tone that reassures the audience that he does not agree with audience on where they stand with Fourth of
Crunchy Granola Suite’s music is by G. Harrell ("Fosse - the Musical."). This specific piece of work is recognized by many dance critics to be one of the strongest pieces in the revue. The exciting piece, danced by twelve dancers is described as a showstopper. Two company members sing Crunchy Granola Suite: Brad Anderson and Eugene Fleming. These two members have been seen in previous numbers dancing, which is yet another example of the versatility Fosse expected from his dancers.
This is a broadening in the poem; it’s like we opening the lens wider. Finally, the speaker talks about the pale eyes of a white vet.

“A pair of stage “twins” who turned out to be the girls in yellow” (Fitzgerald 51). With yellow shown to portray as gold and status of wealth, having the girls wear yellow does just that in showing how rich and lively his parties were specifically hinted at and pointed out by Fitzgerald. Overall Fitzgerald likes to incorporate the color yellow into the parties to show how vibrant and rich they were.

In the beginning of the novel, McMurphy came from wilderness and begins to gain followers by teaching the men that it is good to rebel against Ratched. In the middle of the novel, McMurphy chooses to rebel, takes the men on a fishing trip, and creates miracles by making Bromden break his twenty years of silence. At the end of the novel, McMurphy proves to be a Christ figure because he stands up for George and in return gets EST, gets betrayed by Billy, and receives a lobotomy. The idea that sometimes one must sacrifice himself for the greater good is still a relevant message in today’s society because it is important to stand up for other’s who cannot stand up for themselves. For example, Nelson Mandela peacefully protested in South Africa against apartheid and was jailed in doing so, but he did it for the sake of
Vonnegut uses a convenient narrator and character who is able to comment objectively on a variety of social situations. The main character’s position makes it possible for him to observe a story that is happening outside himself, in this case, the narrator’s position as director allows him to tell the story of Helene and Harry, two actors who are directed to fall in love on stage and simultaneously fall in love in reality. This short story was definitely a page turner, especially because I enjoyed Helen’s determinative attitude to bring Harry to love her despite the difficulties. Even the last line of the story: “She gave me a big smile and said, “Who are we this time?”, left me smiling to the ending of this thoughtful, loving short story (Vonnegut
“I’m very tough,” he says. “And I am not not brave. I do this, and we’re very successful.” At the end of a performance by the Mark Morris Dance Group, Mark Morris himself appears on stage, arms flung wide. He takes a swooping, extravagantly theatrical bow to the audience and then turns to salute his dancers. This gesture of thanks is warm, humble and hugely embracing.

The medicine man thanks God for all creatures including man. Those in the ceremony are thankful to God and ask forgiveness of all those they have hurt and extend forgiveness to those who have hurt them. The author thought it was a primitive superstition.
Some of the other rituals that the author focuses on includes the, at least once a year, visit to the highly respected people, or “healers”, known as the holy-mouth-man, and the medicine men. Miner goes on to describe the barbaric sounding rituals that the Nacirema people experience when they visit each man respectably. For example, in the article, Miner explains how the holy-mouth-man appears to find happiness in causing people pain in their mouth when the man either drills holes into bad teeth or rips out teeth. Miner is astonished that the Nacirema people faithfully continue go back to these “healers” even when these “healers” seem to cause more pain for these people. In conclusion, the author has a hard time understanding how these Nacirema people have survived for so long as a culture while they seem to torment themselves by trusting in the magic of the healers and society who appear to cause them distress at least
