In Dunbar’s poem “Sympathy” there is end rhyme present but no real rhyme scheme. Those are some of the rhythmic elements Dunbar uses in his writing. Dunbar writes his poems on very serious matters, such as life and dreams and identity. In his poem “We Wear the Mask” Dunbar writes about people wearing masks but the true meaning of the poem is how people will try to hide their identity to look like a better more perfect person. In his poem “Life” dunbar writes about how life is not always good and at t8imes life seems to be really bad.
In the Introduction, Jay Heinrichs provides the reader with a foundation about the upcoming concepts on rhetoric, persuasion, seduction, and argument used in our everyday lives and in writing. Throughout this section, he discusses rhetoric that he encounters throughout life and without rhetoric it is merely impossible. He tries to go through a non rhetorical day, but it turns “out to be pretty darn rhetorical, but nonetheless agreeable” (11). Rhetoric prevents fighting, because without an agreement, people use fighting as a way of arguing. So, although people may see rhetoric as manipulation and/or seduction, it provides an agreement, within an otherwise violent, aggravating argument.
O’Brien had used many literary devices in his book, especially rhetorical devices which are important for how and what he writes, but, the meaning of them is the most important.

Once he is able to open up more he is able to achieve a sense of clarity, “I now knew what I had missed the most, I missed me, Tom Brennan, and that’s why I could now smile, ‘cause I could see I was coming back”. This is a significant shift in Tom’s attitude towards life and marks the final stage of his transition. Revealing he has successfully overcome his own obstacles. Likewise John Mayer experiences his own journey of transitioning as he deals with the idea of growing up. His apprehension towards the idea is incorporated through the title “Stop This Train”.
The opposition between fate and free will has become a reoccurring theme in literary works, motion pictures, and everyday life. In these moments, the audience questions whether characters are living out their destiny or if they are doing things on their own accord. In fact, in the Old-English epic poem Beowulf, many characters show copious amounts of evidence for both living out their fate versus acting at their own discretion. Although many will argue that Grendel acts upon his own thoughts, many textual excerpts from Beowulf point to the idea that Grendel is living his destiny.
In the novel The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini, there are many different important conflicts throughout the story. These conflicts are brought upon by the recurring motifs, such as redemption and loyalty.

Elliot simply used these allusions to tell his own story, sometimes giving new meanings to quotes, or adding emphasis to new words or phrases. Often, these references had to be understood themselves for a reader to truly know what was being said in one of Elliot’s works. One such work that contains so many references to past writers and works, is “The Love Story of J. Alfred Prufrock”. The story of Prufrock is an intriguing one dominated by allusions and many references to earlier works of literature that Elliot himself read, and applied to a story of a modern man.

After his experience at college now when he ever visits a different college, he looks for people who have trouble with the mechanics of writing. He states in his biography,” I encourage them to work on the mechanics, but more importantly, I want them to understand that writing is storytelling! The story is what holds the magic and power. The story is why we created language (Mikaelsen).” This is one of Ben’s quotes when writers ask him how to become a better writer, “Go out and live!
What is theme? Theme is a motive or lesson of great importance that the creator wants us to learn. In the story “Rikki-Tikki-Tavi” by Rudyard Kipling, good triumphs over evil is the theme of this amazing, exciting, and deep novella. I absolutely, without a doubt, know this is the theme because for every well behaved character something wonderful happens to them. For every awful character something despicable happens to them also.
