With dialogue as simple as few word responses and narration as complex as a paragraph on a location’s description the difference is hard to miss. But what do they do with their difference in regards to the novel? They do what the other cannot. The narration and the dialogue both have roles as different as their language, while the narration provides immersion and deep thinking, the dialogue provides an understanding of the characters and the world. Without one or the other, the novel would not have the same effect on the reader.
Overall, this article can be valued as a credible document for scholars seeking a summary of these two pieces of work. However, the frequent use of summary instead of breaking down the text takes away from Wright 's point of racial oppression and alienation each character faces in the story. This article is recommended to those who are unfamiliar to with these stories in particular from Uncle Tom 's Children. Nonetheless, the author spending an excessive amount of time summarizing the text takes away the value of the article. If a scholar was seeking an article that contains a decent amount of literary analyze this text wouldn 't be beneficial.
Medea uses Ethos, the persuasion through ethical arguments, to appeal to the female Chorus who live in a patriarchal land. Medea and the women of Corinth both share, to a different extent, the experience of being unfairly categorized as the caretaker of the family, which aids Medea in persuasion because she can be trusted as a woman to speak on the patriarchal society. She continues as ‘’of all creatures that have life and reason we women are the sorriest lot’’ (229-230) of all the living things Medea describes women as the ‘’sorriest’’ which suggests that women are pitied and helps Medea to allure the Chorus to be on her side. Medea suggests to the Chorus that Females ‘’must at a great expenditure of money buy a husband and even take on a master over our body: this evil is more galling than the first.’’(231-233) Medea is arguing that women must sacrifice a ‘’great’’ amount of money to ‘’buy’’ their partners. This conveys the patriarchal community in Corinth.
In the end of the article Brady uses a rhetorical question, explaining that the wives are the ones who do all the work: “ My God, who wouldn’t want a wife?” (230). Her reference to this quote uses pathos because the rhetorical question adds humor into the thought of why she wants a wife; Judy uses pathos to put the reader at ease and to suspend judgment. Another example of pathos is in Paragraph 8 “ I want the liberty to replace my present wife with another one” (230); this statement is more of a ridicule than humorous. Pathos is the emotional appeal based on their feelings. Judy Brady mainly uses humor throughout her article, but other ways it may be interpreted may include to build bridges or to sustain an
Brady uses words and various rhetorical elements to bring more awareness towards the feminist movement towards readers. In the essay, Brady establishes ethos by allowing the readers to know that she is a housewife with the first line, “I belong to that classification of people known as wives.” Throughout the essay, Brady uses irony and sarcasm to show the absurd standards that women have to meet in the household, “I want a wife to go along when our family takes a vacation so that someone can continue to care for me and my children when I need a rest and change of scene.” Brady successfully delineates her criticism of societal expectations of housewives by their husbands through her use of words. She effectively crafts her thoughts into words that make the goal of creating equality between females and males more
Often times, literary works can easily distinguish between a good character or an evil character. Other times, a character can be very complex, which makes it difficult to characterize the character as good or evil. This complex character complex is known as Moral Ambiguity. In other words, readers are discouraged from identifying a character as purely good or evil. One particular character that can be views as morally ambiguous is a woman named Edna Pontellier.
Judy Brady’s “I Want A Wife” is a revolutionary piece that attempted to reveal the unequal roles men and women held in society. She goes through her prose by listing all the responsibilities her wife must have and the ways to make her happy. Brady’s whole article is satirizing these roles and is, in general, very sarcastic in her tone. She mocks a society that has given women an impossible standard and she starts with the deprivation of her education then continues with the role her wife should play in domestic ways, and then finishes with the expectations the sexual aspects of their relationship. I believe that Brady’s underlying message was and still is important for the development of equality in our nation.
Having a primary judgment is natural, but preventing oneself from experiencing human interaction because of some broad title is uncalled for and rude. Those who read fiction and mentally observe this socially constructed isolation tend to be more understanding, empathizing, and open minded. By using literature and even historical events to open one’s mind, one can surpass this subconscious animalistic judgment and break these metaphorical barriers of social
Although Judy Brady’s I Want a Wife and Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s The Declaration of Sentiments both revolve around the mistreatment and desire of equality for women, The Declaration of Sentiments emphasizes political and social justice while I Want a Wife focuses more on domestic life. In I Want a Wife, Judy Brady explains much of what is expected of women through rhetoric by stating that she too would like a wife. She then goes on to discuss the various, so-called, wifely duties that men seem to expect from their spouse. Brady states that “[she] wants a wife who will work and send [her] to school” (Patterns,502) and that while she is attending school she expects the wife to care for the children. To dress them, feed them, arrange playdates
Curley’s wife uses Crook’s skin color to her advantage because during that time, black people were oppressed. Although she projects power, it is only to hide her vulnerability. She explains why she is dissatisfied with her life to Lennie and why she is living the way she is now. “Coulda been in the movies, an’ had nice clothes--all them nice clothes like they wear” (Steinbeck 97). Curley’s wife admits she doesn’t actually like Curley and married Curley because she didn’t want ruin her life.
Stephanie Ericcson appeals to readers emotions, because everybody does what she says in her writing. Being around people, and telling them things don’t always come out like they should, When talking to people it’s ok to tell the truth sometimes. People don’t always need to know the truth. Being in a bad situation and trying to get out of it, and telling a lies ok, some may not agree, but I think its ok. Rhetorical: why is the speaker?
Brady appeals to the reader’s emotions in her article why I want a wife by using pathos. She creates a connection between herself and the reader to make the reader feel what she is feeling and relate to her, which by definition is pathos. In Brady’s article “Why I Want a Wife” she develops a valid argument of why she wants a “wife” by using examples of pathos to connect with her female readers of the Ms. Magazine and draw their attention. This is a rather effective method when one considers that this article was written in the 1970’s when women’s rights acts was just starting to take place. Before stating her argument Brady identifies herself as a “wife” to establish her credibility.
In Lamott’s writing, she animates her ideas of writing raft drafts to the readers. Lamott delivers her message very creatively by using various descriptive and poetic phrases, making her piece entertaining and impressing. She frankly talks about her struggles as a writer in order to encourage the readers to feel comfortable making their first attempts. However, because of her language style in the article, her argument becomes vague. From the reader’s point of view, the intention of this article seems to be a ‘writing guide for beginners’ rather than an argumentative essay because her writing lacks evidence and credibility.
It says, “Even some highly trained writers or speaks make a mistake such on Wayne Booth”. So a rhetor should be more careful and practice because it is one way of persuasion point to an audience. Argument is different than persuasion. It stands to discuss and to agree or not agree with situation. It depends on the knowledge and what you are arguing about, sometimes an audience does not have to give the reason.
Since the argument is primarily backed with pathos and ethos, her persuasion does not have a lasting effect on many people who are less easily persuaded simply by addressing their emotions. Thus meaning, her message is not as strong as it could be if she incorporated more logic. Op-Ed is the shortened way to say “opposite the editorial page”. This means that the article written in Op-Ed is not affiliated with the publisher’s editorial board. The significance of Op-Ed is to allow an up-and-coming writer to express their opinions regarding a certain topic.
