In Patrick Henry’s “Speech to the Second Virginia Convention”, used figures of speech, metaphors and similes, and rhetorical questions to persuade his audience to agree with his views on the war and the conditions of America.
Ancient stories and legends of history help people in their stories by accomplishing one main goal as a literary story.

Morals and a different set of values arises in every story to give the growing minds and general population a reason to read. The tale of Henry the IV is no different as people read about the daily lives of certain characters. Assessing for a moment are the characters in the tale known as Hotspur and Falstaff, throughout the story they will mention the idea of honour and what is means to them.
Throughout William Shakespeare’s 1597 History “The First Part of King Henry the Fourth”, the importance of individual reputation proves to be a catalyst for character advancement and plot development alike. King Henry’s repeated emphasis on the superior characteristics of himself and Hotspur earlier in the scene establish a dichotomy between the ideal leader and Prince Henry. In a rebuttal to his father 's disapproving tone, Hal vows to reclaim both his honor as a prince and his honor as a son. Shakespeare’s use of language through lines 129-159 in act III.2 foreshadows events to come while reinforcing Prince Henry’s earlier assertion that he will be the victor when battling Hotspur.
Aun: In paragraph 2, Thomas Paine tries to explain to the colonists that they have been tricked and that they had made big sacrifices only to be tricked. He says the colonists say that they have the protection of Britain, when Britain’s main motive was interest in the new land, not to attach to it. Britain did not fight for us but fought for itself with people we were at peace with. Britain gave us new enemies. Thomas explains how they should be independant and let Britain fight its own battles with France and
The Colorful Language of Shakespeare’s King Richard II A great portion of Gaunt’s dialogue throughout the play makes strong reference to God. For instance, his philosophical, holy dialect in the play is first evident in the conversation between the Duchess of Gloucester as her emotions are heightened in regard to her husband’s death (Bevington, 2014). Gaunt then speaks more in-depth about Richard’s incompetent ways of ruling in a conversation with York, and he describes Richards leadership in England by utilizing a colorful analogy of a garden and the ways of nature.

Paul Revere, the amazingly brave American hero who saved the country, say the storytellers and poets. While he really was just an average messenger who was captured by the British. In the poem Paul Revere’s ride by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow, Longfellow does an extraordinary job at creating suspense throughout the poem. He does this by often using metaphors, similes, and detailed descriptions including rhymes. Longfellow wrote “A phantom ship with a mast and spar Across the moon like a prison bar,” which are examples of rhyme, metaphor, and a simile.
Michael Prestwich in his book Medieval People courageously attempts to encapsulate in few pages the early life, as well as the contribution of the Pope Urban II in the reform of the Catholic church and the creation of the first crusades, yet he fails to quote the Pope himself with regard to his speech with the reference to the Christian Holy War against Islam. Such an important missing element demonstrates his prejudice toward Christianity. In particular, Prestwich begins his brief chapter on the life of the Pope Urban II by recalling his contribution to the Crusades. Also, he provides an incisive background of the expansion of the Muslims and the Byzantine empire before the creation and the rise of the crusades.
In the passage, Henry David Thoreau uses the literary device of a metaphor to contrast the morning’s dawn with the awakening of the reader’s intrinsic knowledge. To drive his metaphor, Thoreau uses vivid language, which paints an ideal scene for the reader. The sentence, “Then there is least somnolence in us; and for an hour, at least, some part of us awakes which slumbers all the rest of the day and night,” characterizes a persistently hazy state of being from which an individual rouses to find clarity. By juxtaposing the natural and spiritual, Thoreau alludes to a transcendental ideology rooted in self-enlightenment. The phrase, “Little is to be expected of that day, if it can be called a day, to which we are not awakened by our Genius,”
Personally, I believe that the time period had a lot to do with King Henry’s marital problems. During this time lives were shorter, and the urgency to father a male child was pressing. From what I know of King Henry he was very focused on having a son, some wives were discarded due to their inability to produce one. Ironically, we now know that it is the male that contributes the Y chromosome which results in a male child, so his lack of a son was his own fault.
