I do agree with Joe Turnbull’s essay, and I also understand why Shepard Fairey keep continuing his artwork even though it might have raise so many ethical questions. Even though, the artists reserve the right to be able to express themselves within his/her artworks, the artwork should be within the range of appropriation. Fairey’s stickers should’ve been more in the private or not as common as door to door public for those people who actually support the theme of his work. Fairey also an artist that do not need to make more name but people still want more, according to Turnbull’s essay, Fairey was “reported net worth of $15 million” (Turnbull pg9/15).

Laura Esquivel in the book “Like Water For Chocolate” uses many strategies throughout the book like imagery ,and exaggeration. Both imagery and exaggeration helped develop the tone and the mood ,and set the purpose the passages that were given to us by Esquivel.

The use of words that Esquivel uses gives us a better understanding of the strategies being used by the author, and what she is trying to say by using those words. There are many other strategies that Esquivel uses, but exaggeration and imagery have a huge role in the book, and not only in the passage where she describes Nacha, but in others where the food is involved.

His lesson is greed is the root of all evil, and he proves this lesson well by being evil because how greedy and deceiving he is. He shows how greedy he is by selling people fake relics for money.

Often known as the Father of American Literature to many educated individuals, Ralph Waldo Emerson in his oration “The American Scholar” brilliantly provides a sublime example of how Emerson earned his title through the appliance of diction, syntax, allusions, and many other rhetorical devices and strategies. Indicated towards his highly educated audience, the Phi Beta Kappa Society, Emerson introduces the idea that the common class and common concepts of everyday life are becoming the future of art and literature through purpose, credibility, and tone. As many great writers, Emerson does not simply tell about his idea, but instead uses rhetorical strategies to help show his central point, one such strategy being purpose. Being focused on informing his audience of the coming days, the use of purpose can be
