By using vigorous pathos, she gets the reader to fathom that a girl’s education is important and meaningful to them.

Diction varies between text as a children’s novel will have less advanced word choice than an academic paper. In Bill Bryson’s “How You Became You”, the diction plays a major role in advancing the purpose. The usage of words in this essay is very important as the author need to find a fine balance between alienating the audience through complex words and phrases and completely losing all credibility by sounding too lax and ignorant.

Pg.
Throughout this essay, Steinem uses various rhetorical claims in order to establish credibility. For instance, from the beginning the utilization of pathos was applied in order to catch the attention of the readers. Steimen expresses, “I
In the short story “The Yellow Wallpaper” by Charlotte Perkins Gilman, the emotional state of the narrator and feelings toward her husband are reflected in her description of the setting through the use of first person narration, imagery to portray feelings of oppression and figurative language to create a consistent tone of isolation and cynical irony. The narrator uses symbolism to portray her connection with her observations and the yellow wallpaper. From the moment they moved into their house, the narrator felt like her husband treated her like a child which was shown when he forces her stay in a nursery. John forces the narrator to repress her imagination. While her "habit of story-making" might have found a healthy outlet in writing,
The presentation by Janna, Ashley, Joey, and Amber described the effects of Romanticism through their powerpoint and role play game. Through Emma’s early life, marriage, and affairs, Flaubert criticizes Romanticism. These ideals just created an illusion for Emma about what life should be like, constantly making her unhappy, restless, and bored.

To Emma, her affairs seemed like the perfect way to escape from her mediocre life and mundane marriage.
He thinks of Margo as an event or force in his life — a “miracle” that happens to him — rather than as a person whose existence is separate from his. Margo and Quentin are very different. When they discovered the dead man, it was like an intrusion on Quentin’s innocence, breaking up their play date. However, Margo’s fascination with the body and apparent comfort in the presence of death suggests she is not so childlike as Quentin is himself, or as he remembers her.
Death, our narrator, tells the story of Liesel Meminger. We begin with her at age nine, right after losing both her mother and brother.

Banning books also filters realism. Parents surely cannot expect to shelter their children from the real world forever. These books might have have violence and torture and bad people, but so does the real world and kids should know what to face if they have to when they grow up. If you read about people with sad, terrible lives, you will feel more grateful for what you have and you will be a better person. If you don 't about the dark and sadness of the world, you can 't know to appreciate the happiness and light.
Controversy will always be woven into society. Yet, controversy would not be a problem if everyone did not have different opinions. " People generally see what they look for, and hear what they listen for" (Harper lee). Harper Lee wrote To Kill a Mockingbird as a social commentary, so that we could learn life lessons about what used to happen to and so that it does not happen again. This is one of the most taught pieces of literature to students, because of all of the controversy and to make sure that students learn from the horrid mistakes of the past.
