In Florence Kelley’s heart wrenching call for awareness of child labor she uses quite a few rhetorical devices. An anaphora is the most recognizable as she’s trying to nail in how she would could be helping the children. Pathos is another of her persuasion methods used in her tone. Kelley also uses a fair amount of imagery throughout the passage. First and foremost, Kelley’s use of an anaphora is what really pulls the audience’s attention.
This imagery, like the illustration, appeals the listener's emotions as it gives them an inside look on what it is like to be a child working under these conditions. In conclusion, Florence Kelley used many rhetorical strategies in order to call her audience to arms against child labor laws. She accuses the laws of being unjust and labels the children prisoners. In the last two paragraphs, Kelley refers to her cause as the "freeing of the children."

Sara Teasdale was an American born lyrical poet whose work focused on expressing a woman’s changing perspective on beauty, love, life, and death during the time of the Gilded Age in America. Many of her works were thought to portray her own perspective on said topics. Later in life, Teasdale struggled with her mental health and, as a result of this, depression eventually caused her to take her own life at forty-nine years old (“Sara Teasdale”). Teasdale’s bleak view of her own life during her later years is mirrored in “Barter” as the speaker expresses clear feelings of regret; as described in the poem, the speaker believes that she herself has not lived her life to the full extent. Through imagery, tone change, and an extended metaphor, Teasdale supports her vital message to the reader that one must take full advantage of the wonders of life before the opportunity to do so becomes no longer achievable.

She showed the audience that because she moved with grace demonstrated through out swinging, suspended and sustained movements it did not mean that she was fragile.
