Jennifer Price uses tone, irony, and sarcasm in “The Plastic Pink Flamingo” as her rhetorical devices to reveal her view on not only flamingos, but also culture. She engages her audience and this causes them to continue reading. There are deep issues that Jennifer Price addresses in her essay such as consumerism and the materialistic society. She calls these issues to her audience’s attention by speaking of the less serious plastic, pink flamingos. Price criticizes the United States culture by juxtaposing the seriousness of a nation bouncing back from depression with the quirky nature of the flamingo.
One technique he certainly utilizes more than once is exaggeration. By embellishing the story, he heightens the enjoyment for his reader, and also gets his point across more clearly. Furthermore, satire and sarcasm help illustrate what Sedaris finds absurd, while still making it humorous. In “I Pledge Allegiance to the Bag,” Sedaris ridicules American tendencies by writing, “Trains don’t normally sneak up on people. Unless they’re derailed, you pretty much know where to find them…” (216).

The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn a classic American novel by the satirical master Mark Twain. It is bursting with humor, adventure, the bonds of friendship, and many lessons to find. Translated into many different languages and read all over the world it gives people a taste of Americas harsh, but true past. With our stars Huckleberry “Huck” Finn and Jim the runaway slave this is an exceptional book to be taught in high schools, the following essay will explain why. Let’s begin with the ingenious use of three different dialects; although it confuses readers, even me, it’s easy to get the hang of.
The Persuasive points of The Modest Proposal by Jonathon Swift , The persuasive use of Ethos, Pathos, and Logos can persuade a nation full of citizens to kill one another, if used correctly. In The Modest Proposal by Jonathon Swift, he announces an idea that would help alleviate his country from the burden of overpopulation, hunger, and sadness; but most would agree, his suggestion wasn’t so modest. Swift proposed to use the unwanted children, year of age and older, for repast and commonly used goods like boots and gloves. He backs his reasoning by citing other civilizations that practice cannibalism: promoting family values: and building the failing economy that his country was in. To be successful at persuasion, there must be facts to back your statement.
Additionally, the transition in language allows the audience to see Mercutio as more than a jokester. Because of this, he gains credibility for his views. Furthermore, as the language used becomes less whimsical and more patently alarming, there is less breathing room between phrases, which creates the image of Mercutio losing control. Mercutio’s delivery of these lines is effective in that the audience is able to sense how destructive and delusional dreams are – to the point that they can drive a sane man mad. Through the “Queen Mab” speech, the audience it introduced to Mercutio’s lightning-quick wit and ability to steal a scene.
“HPV Vaccine Texas Tyranny”/ “The HPV Debate Needs an Injection of Reality” In the essay, “HPV Vaccine Texas Tyranny” by Mike Adams, his response is centered around his “CounterThink” cartoon while he expresses his opinions about young girls and HPV vaccinations. For a cartoon artist, I found that his writing was effective. Adams uses appeals, like educating the reader about what made him create his cartoon, as well as facts and his own opinions. Just by reading this essay you can tell that the whole situation really set him off, but his within his writing he tends to rant a little too much, however, I like how he openly expresses his opinions and isn’t afraid of telling the world how he feels. I like how Adam’s addressed that Merck should “..pledge to give away all their vaccines free of charge…this is all about money, not public health,” and “If Merck was really about “patients first,” they should convert to a 501( c )3 non-profit, stop paying their CEO’s 10+ million salaries, and give all their drugs away for free as a gift to humankind, shouldn’t they.” While Adams states this controversial issue that he feels so strongly to make it known to the people of the United States, he also offers what his audience can do to spread the word about this issue, even offering to let anyone post his cartoon, free of charge in order to stop this “medical tyranny.” I consider Adams essay valid because he addresses medical facts and companies, and his tone is persuasive and demanding (some people do not like reading demanding work).
My position that A Modest Proposal is not despicable lies within the irony of the entire piece. In the first eight paragraphs of the work, Swift explains the issue of poverty and what children could amount to in a rational way. Suddenly, he changed gears and provides the irrational suggestion of eating the children which he presents in a very logical way by showing the many benefits that will occur if his idea is implanted. One of the clear examples of irony is in the title itself because his “modest” proposal is anything but modest. As you continue reading and closely examining the work, it can be seen that every suggestion Swift makes is filled with sarcasm and mocking the English and Irish governments.
He also explains principles of friendship and enmity as shared pleasure and pain. He discusses how to create in readers a sense of fear and shame and shamelessness and kindness and unkindness and pity and indignation and envy and indignation and emulation. Then he starts all over and shows how to create such feelings toward ideas in various types of human character' of "people" of virtue and vice; those of youth, prime of life, and old age; and those of good fortune and those of bad fortune." Aristotle warns us, however: knowing (as a good willed writer) how to get your readers to receive your ideas by making readers "pleased and friendly" or "pained and
ENGL 102 Evaluation of the Modest Proposal There are many proposals that can be made to reduce a population and poverty. Many believe that a nuclear bomb would destroy such an entire country if wanted to, but the reality is there are many ways to do it. A child is a blessing from heaven for a couple to have, and not everyone is lucky to be able to conceive a child. In 1729, Johnathan Swift would write The Modest Proposal, where he makes an outrages proposal to reduce population and poverty in Ireland. With many ideas that Johnathan Swift had he proposed that babies would make a good meal and would also reduce the population, and eventually would be removed from society so that there would be less poverty in the future.
