In fiction, the narrator controls how the audience connects to and perceives the various characters in a story. A good author can manipulate the narration to connect the audience to certain characters and deepen the reader’s understanding of their conflicts. In “Previous Condition” and “Sonny’s Blues,” James Baldwin illustrates themes of loneliness and isolation in the pursuit of finding a space that feels like home. Although this theme is clear in both stories, Baldwin is able to portray it very differently in each story through the relationship he allows the reader to the characters struggling with these feelings. While “Previous Condition” provides a more intimate relationship to the narrator, “Sonny’s Blues” is able to deliver an additional level of understanding by telling the story through Sonny’s brother, therefore disconnecting the reader in a way that forces him or her to share the characters’ feelings of isolation and confusion.

Was he just unenlightened and mistaken to put the well-being of others above his own personal interests?” (Page 2, Para. 2).
The worse thing the pressure brought to Hughes was his loss of faith. He no longer could believe in Jesus, and he lost that faith while making other people happy that he had been “saved.” Orwell doesn't buy what society believes about beggars. Beggars have to go through a lot on the streets, to still be detested by society. Society doesn't care what beggars have to go through, they only care about who has a lot of money.

Authors always have a message they wish to instill upon readers. That is, of course, the purpose of writing: to eloquently devise a message that can be easily interpreted by the public so that they can develop a better understanding of something that an author represents. The success of an author, then, in creating a powerful message, manifests itself in whether or not those who read the message decide to take action on the issue presented by the author. The success of Brent Staples in “Black Men and Public Space,” and Andrew Sullivan in “What is a Homosexual?” in conveying their messages come from the ways that the authors utilize various rhetorical devices and tone, elements which help to solidify the purpose of their essays.
