The discrimination of people depending on the color of their skin was just as bad as well. The main character Mare, developed amazing friendships with some Silvers after she learned to look past the differences and she tried to learn who they really are, not just their appearances. Through reading this novel it helped me to understand the pain of discrimination and since the story was told in first person, I could feel the emotions the main character was feeling. I think discrimination because of what a person’s blood or skin is like is truly an awful thing to do and this novel helped me stand by this argument more
Capote uses this choice of words to establish a setting and paint a picture in the reader's mind of what Capote truly wants them to see and to expand on the grim and dismal mood that the readers feel throughout the entire passage. He uses many tone words like, slapped, pruned, stamped, cursing, and numbed as tone words to shift the mood of the reader to the depressing mood that Capote intends for the readers to feel and to help provide vivid imagery for the readers. These words are used to help Capote and help the readers understand what is happening in the passage with detail and with a unique perspective. In conclusion, Truman Capote effectively uses rhetorical devices such as metaphor, imagery, and diction to contribute to the shift from the third section of In Cold Blood to the fourth and final section and to pride a grim and dismal mood for the readers throughout this entire passage. Without the use of these devices, the transition would be much more difficult to understand and Capote did a phenomenal job of making it as clear as possible to all who read this
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury is about a dystopian society and how in their society books are neglected and burned. How he conveys these emotions or moment in the book by using lines from other books called allusions. Allusions are used to express how people feel in the moment of the book. Authors use allusions because it makes it easier for people to connect to the book and you get the sense of what is happening in the book. Bradbury uses it in Fahrenheit 451 because the book is complex and harder to understand so he uses allusions for the reader to get a better understanding of what is going on and what the situation is.
He needed a way to vent, to mourn the loss, and he did this through writing. He helped others mourn by writing letters to their relatives, or reading letters for prisoners who were illiterate. “In return for cigarettes and coffee, I’d write chicks for the cons in the dungeon” (). This is because many of them if they could write at all they weren’t good, and they wanted their girlfriends’ to be able to read and enjoy it. It wasn’t an unfair exchange, and Jimmy enjoyed writing poems specially for people.
Dorothea Lange’s goal as a photographer, indicated in the article ”Dorothea Lange : Photographer of Truth” was to show the public the frustration and desperation of people affected by the Great Depression. For example in paragraph 10 of the text it reads, “She wanted to capture people and their frustration, despair, strength, hope, or dignity in the face of adversity.” This proves that her goal was to capture people affected by the Great Depression and share it with the public. The author also states that “Lange’s photographs and written descriptions of the unfair conditions endured by migrant workers were utilized in hearings held by Congress, and influenced their policies concerning victims of injustice.” This example from the text supports
In the poem “Ballad of Birmingham’’ written by Dudley Randal, some fellow peers might disagree with his ways of figurative captivation that he uses about the tragic events displayed to his audience, but believe it or not, there might be a few reasons behind this occurrence- and why it may have surpassed us all. First and foremost, the author took advantage of the heartbreaker and tear-jolter of literature known as Pathos. Pathos is the element of persuasion that was used to make his readers understand the mother’s pain and placement of losing an innocent child; your innocent child. Secondly, he clearly understood his adjectives and word elements throughout the poem and obviously objectified them to his own advantage.
In the book Cinder, the author expresses the theme that bravery is how you decide to face the worst, through her word choice, and dark and desperate tone. Her powerful words contribute not only to how you view the protagonist and Peony’s lives, but also to how they decide to face the cruel world around them. Although the word choice shows that they both have a hard life, they’re constantly fighting the pain, to get over it, which relates back to the theme. Both word choice and tone had a great influence in how readers decide to view the characters, and the lives that they are leading. While reading this book, it seemed that word choice played a really big part, as to how you view Cinder as a person.
The mask is like putting a pretty painting over a hole in the wall. The wall would now look appealing on the outside but, broken behind it. Montag didn’t want that pretty painting anymore to hide his brokenness, but learn to express them and understand his emotions. These “happy masks” relate to my theme because in a perfect world you are not acting happy but living happy. The crying women represents Mrs.Bowles and her new found emotion of sadness.
You have the potentials”(Gaines 191). In this excerpt from Grant’s speech to Jefferson, the author uses simple language to paint a simple scene. The reader can easily imagine the distress in Grant’s face and exhaustion he feels from his words while he is trying to explain to Jefferson that he has the power to grow and make a difference. Symbols can also be used to demonstrate the theme, such as the hog in A Lesson Before Dying. After being called a hog by his defense attorney, Jefferson’s godmother, Miss.
Although the speech speaks for itself, there were some confusing parts that I later understood. When I approached this assignment I knew that I was going to have to dig in deep and understand the speech to be able to start my assignment. I really enjoyed reading the Gettysburg address because, it's always great reading about events that happened in past history and how they've changed the world. I felt the work I did was difficult but I pushed myself so I would to be able to give an explanation on the what I was trying to
1 What type of documentation did you see and inspire you? To my perspective, all those projects have been a trip toward the unconscious mind of the child and has released his/her deep emotional and visual experience. Also, the project has been a bridge between the self-unconscious (intangible) and language of self-expression (touchable) as “Artifacts”. To me as an educator with major study field in graphic and Fabric design, the outcome of the documentation has been a pure art which was occurred based on the unconscious of the child and affected his/her behavior and emotions. For the art, the timing of skill and the skill itself must be primarily unconscious responses.
I chose this article because I wanted to know if there was more to crying then this emotional drag, if there was a scientific reason of some sort. And I thought if I read this information, I could learn to understand why we cry at times and how to calm down. Have you ever realized that you start to cry after you feel upset? A beginning key line stuck out to me in the article, “Research suggests we don 't weep because we are upset (like we might run because we are afraid); we cry
