Arguments happen everyday in history and now a days. Weather the arguments come from speeches, debates, body language, or even a paper; they contribute to everyday life. These arguments can happen by audio or visual rhetorics which help to strengthen the argument and its purpose. Both Daniel H. Cohen and FDR use great rhetorics in their speeches, ethos and pathos, while keeping in mind the audiences they are speaking to. These two men both had a purpose in their speeches, weather it to argue the importance and ways of argument winning, or the future of the country. All are important in their own mind and by the end the audience to believe it.

Almost everyone throughout Maycomb thought Tom was guilty just because of the color of his skin. But, the real question was, did Tom Robinson really abuse and take advantage of Mayella Ewell?
Lead author of the Harlem Renaissance and first African-American anthropologist studying his own culture, Zora Neale Hurston is, in many ways, an exceptional writer. Indeed, unlike others such as Robert Wright or Alain Locke, Hurston does not deny the cultural legacy that represents the black folklore, folklore that will influence both the form and substance of his art. As a trained anthropologist, Hurston has been able to capture the American black culture and use it through vernacular oral transcriptions. In Their Eyes Were Watching God, we will analyze the mobilization of language that Hurston uses in order to create a pictorial world. Firstly, we will explore the use of vernacular language. Then we will show the importance of rhetorical figure of speech used by the author. We

Tragedies, they will happen without a hint of awareness but they cannot be stopped or answered for. When they do occur it leads people to shock and grief. However tragedies brings forth something that gives people unity, hope, and direction. This something is called a leader and throughout history many people have embodied this quality. There are many instances where people have stood up an embodied this quality. For instance G.W. Busch during 9-11 and Abraham Lincoln with the Gettysburg Address. These two occasions might be different in many ways but they share a person rising to an opportunity to provide inspirational words for the people. Specifically, we can look at Ronald Reagan and how he rises to an occasion and unifies people while providing direction in a speech about the tragic “Challenger” event.

Bartleby the Scrivener is a story narrated from the perception of a Manhattan lawyer responsible for managing an interesting office. The center of this narrative is Bartleby, and it concentrates on the affiliation between him and the narrator who hires him to work in his office. There is not much clarity as to how the narrator finds Bartleby, but this is not an issue of concern until matters take a different direction. Bartleby is revealed as a good worker in comparison to other employees in the office that tend to show their faults like partly being excellent employees. The narrator requests to work on an ordinary job which is not completely relevant to copying, and instead of writing, he prefers to object. When confronted by the narrator about the issue and his reasons for declining the request, he says that he desires not to. After considering the happening for a long time, the storyteller moves his office to a different place to get rid of Bartleby. As the story split ends, Bartleby says no to eating, and he is seen starving himself to death. Various incidences in the story portray Bartleby as a hero who reveals his braveness in facing the unjust community by his authority and molding the conscience of the narrator.
To start off, Mr. Herbert challenges the rights of the slogan that both the Coca-Cola company and Mr. Seaver’s Grove Press company have been using. Herbert attempts to emphasize the size of the problem, claiming that “Several people have called to our attention…” the trouble of both companies using the slogan (line 1). Herbert underscoring the problem creates the effect that it is a noticeable problem that needs a solution as soon as possible. In addition to that Herbert uses a professional tone, introducing his claim in a formal manner, and not plainly demanding for Grove Press to stop using the slogan. Establishing a professional tone can help in an argument as that makes the writer seem like credible, which connects back to ethos. However, Mr. Herbert’s reason for wanting full ownership of the slogan for Coca-Cola is not justified. Herbert’s company having a long history with the slogan does not justify him wanting the Grove company to, “... stop using this theme or slogan in connection with the book” (lines 6-7). The only slogans that Coca-Cola could have full authority over would be any phrase with the word Coca-Cola in it.

It took just forty five days for United States citizens to acquiesce their rights to freedom and privacy for the sake of safety following the events of September 11, 2001. Forty five days is how long it took the United States Congress to pass a law that gave up the very concept of liberty upon which this country is founded. The morning sky was a brilliant shade of blue with not a cloud in sight in New York on that fateful day of September. That all changed at 8:45 AM when a Boeing 767 jet plane tore into the north tower of the World Trade Center. Eighteen minutes later, a second Boeing 767 bit into the sixtieth floor of the south tower. Screams and sirens pierced the air; thick, black smoke and flying debris ruined the perfectly clear
Rhetoric should come back as a staple in learning. Rhetoric can help students recognize persuasion and develop critical thinking skills. Jay Heinrich says in his book that rhetoric has been an essential part of education throughout history. Only recently has rhetoric become generally unpopular.
