What other examples of strongly emotional language do you find in the essay? Start with what the question gives you: Prose uses “strongly emotional language” as part of her argument. The associated and evoked emotions are the key here; you must see that any shock (the “putting off” of readers), as well as any other examples of emotionally charged language, is tied to a specific purpose. Notice the
These “stream of consciousness” narratives are not in place only to convey the depth of their pain, but also a way in which the author can communicate their personal experiences and find closure from the happenings that have damaged their souls and changed their interpretation of humanity. Both of these stories convey my thesis that; whichever end of war you are on, delivering or receiving, the only thing that you can guarantee is pain and change. Uncertainty only lies with how an individual copes with them. The following essay will analyze and compare how the protagonists of each story convey and effectively communicate their grief. The first aspect that I would like to discuss is that of the plot within “The Rite” and “The Man I Killed”.
When Moore conducts interviews with people whom he intends to foreground as trustworthy and intelligent, the atmosphere is very relaxed and laid back. This atmosphere is generated by the comfort which both Marilyn Manson and Matt Stone express physically in their interviews, and also by their easy going nature and speech. They also mutually convey the idea that America’s culture of fear is chiefly responsible for the domestic gun violence which the text revolves around. These opinions, when expressed by people other than the director, are reinforced in the eyes of the audience. Whilst effective and persuasive, these interviews are severely deceptive.
It could be argued that, it is better to be liked than to lead, which insures the conflict may be won with a minimal amount of bloodshed. Furthermore, it is always beneficial to understand the various forms of anguish our soldiers are put through. This knowledge furthers our respect for their sacrifices. Yet, a soldier must stay focused on what must be done, and leave thoughts of the outside world behind. As such, the hard lesson can be examined through the actions, immaturity, character, and various trinkets being carried by the officer and his subordinates.
Nevertheless, both dramatists incorporate the theme of comradeship and team work in their plays, again with stark differences. Where Journeys End clearly shows the sense of unity and team spirit amongst the soldiers brought about by the war, Accrington Pals conveys the opposite effect, on the women’s part who experience a lack,of comradeship and develop a sense of self empowerment, from the effect of the war. Both dramatists ability to construct complex yet realistic characters is notable in the way the theme of comradeship and
His continuous irony throughout “A Modest Proposal” allows him to indirectly present his proposition, which is mostly confusing until the reader becomes educated with his style of writing. By choosing to use irony so often in his essay, Swift is able to illustrate to his audience just how extreme Ireland’s poverty conditions have gotten. With his use of sarcasm, Swift creates the impression that he is truly sincere and sympathetic towards the poor families who are constantly begging, but behind his satirical intentions he is actually meaning the opposite. Frequently in his essay, he portrayed irony when describing his “modest” proposal, that the carcass of one year olds would be profitable. Swift emphasizes his proposal’s advantage of preventing abortions, then clearly conveys irony when he contradicts this benefit three paragraphs later by reassuring his audience that he has been informed a “well-nursed” child “…is at a year old a most delicious, nourishing, and wholesome food, whether stewed, roasted, baked, or boiled…”(Swift 1026).
O'Brien's war stories, "The Things They Carried" and "How to Tell a True War Story" were similar in concerning the mental turmoil that Servicemen undergo while experiencing a life fighting in a war. My hands-on experiences are limited in physical contact; however; both stories are told by the narrator(s) about a letter that is being wrote to two special people of interest. In reference to Lieutenant Cross's letter from "a girl name Martha" (O'Brien p. 78), his misconception of “wishful thinking" about a virgin name Martha, he knew was mentally a myth, "the Love was only a way of signing and did not mean that he sometimes pretended" (78). However; O’Brien’s "How to Tell a True War Story," the 2nd person narrator describes his encounter about his Vietnam collogue during the time of his murder. This character uses the writing technique to "the guy's sister" (O'Brien p. 361) proves to the readers that he grieves and distraction of this incident consistently overtakes his daily focus.
Furthermore, Anna's narration forces readers to recognise the achievements of the female characters whilst highlighting the barbaric nature of the men. However, whilst to a degree Brooks portrays the male characters as brutal, she offers an insight and understanding in to their psychology. The narration by Anna Frith achieves feelings of empathy for the central protagonist and to a lesser extent readers are encouraged to empathise
Hill’s use of the first person narrator is a key element of the novel. Susan Hill’s characters in this novel have limited development because the story is told by the main character, Arthur Kipps. His character is developed in an interesting way because as narrator he is looking back and describing events from the perspective of his younger self. This adds depth to his character and to the plot because as readers, we live through his nightmare with him and share his fears. This viewpoint is particularly effective in this chapter, as readers, we can relate to the terror and anxiety felt by Arthur.
Gordimer tells stories of ordinary people, illuminating moral vagueness and varieties. Her characterization is nuanced, exposed more through the selections for her characters through their maintained identities and beliefs. Perhaps one of Gordimers’s most riveting and controversial literary pieces is Once Upon A Time. In this piece the most important element is its theme. The entire position of the story is about relaying to its readers that human beings create their own annihilation.
