By using strong word choices, Mairs comes to terms with the words used to describe “cripple,” by displaying her strength and admittance to her existence as a cripple. She believes in the use of words describing cripple, and wants people to use the word precisely to label her disability. Moreover, the author uses figurative language to explicate appropriate words used to label her disability. The inaccurate use of words depicting her disability is
In terms of diction for this essay, the author uses three appealing words. The first word is 'body types'. The author uses this word to say how important looks and body types are to women today. "And if you have the 'wrong' body type, well, then, you're just going to have to change it, aren't you?" (Yusufali 1).
Hermes’ response is also full of flattery, he describes her as “high inspired” and “beauteous”, but it is the response Lamia desired to provoke, as he offers her “any bliss” she “canst devise”. Lamia immediately presses her advantage – reinforcing her serpentine nature – as she interjects, demanding him to “seal” his word “with oaths”. This act emphasises how she is unwilling to continue unless she is going to garner some advantage
The moral of the movie for me, is that you should trust your instincts: Höfgen knew the Nazi’s were no good, but he got involved with them anyway and in the end, it didn’t work out well for him. I think this is also the moral message that this movie wants to bring across. That and, stick to what you know. Höfgen was a great actor, but he shouldn’t have tried to interfere with politics as well, that only caused trouble for him. The film is provocative culturally or politically, it forces you to judge the situation and make decisions for yourself, it shows a bad side of the Nazi’s, but it is way too late to do anything about them.
On the other hand Ann is more like the tortoise. She types her syllabus, has an attendance policy, and teaches books she knows well. Their distinct personalities and different methods are evident. The author’s purpose was not only to illustrate Lucy’s character, but to represent Lucy and Ann’s friendship. “They need us to survive, but we need them as well.” This creates the idea that Anne and Lucy are dependant on each other.
Also I believe her aspect on singularity and how an essay should lean more towards a conversation is brilliant. She gets her point through by comparing a restricted newspaper essay to that of a more flavorful and individual essay. What makes Orleans essay so convincing and compelling is that she uses the devices and technics she suggest makes a great essay, in her own individual essay, to prove her point.
In her speech, Atwood challenges the ideals regarding women presented in literature and society, and in doing this also challenges the ideas of extreme feminists. It is in her casual and conversation-like style in delivering, however, that she constructs textual integrity through the use of many rhetorical devices to enhance the style and message of her speech. Her style, although considered ‘rambling’, overall benefits her topic of ‘Problems of Female Bad Behaviour in the Creation of Literature’ in the way that her anecdotes and allusions to many other texts involving the role of women enhance her argument as pieces of evidence. Quite early on in the speech, Atwood uses a personal anecdote to display the role in which fiction plays in society. In the anecdote, involving a play including her nephew where the two lead roles did nothing but eat breakfast, Atwood
The Second Noble Truth is that craving causes all suffering. When we look at psychological suffering, it is easy to see how craving causes it. When we want something but are unable to get it, we feel frustrated. When we expect someone to live up to our expectation and he or she do not, we feel let down and disappointed. When we want others to like us and they don't, we feel hurt.
Ayim (1998) explicitly states that the realm of political correctness encompasses areas including: “policies governing fair language practices, affirmative action in hiring practices, legislation dealing with sexual and racial harassment, and greater inclusion of women and people of Colour in the curriculum” (p. 446). Ayim, however, believes
Machiavelli says it is better to be feared the loved. As for that statement, I strongly disagree. He does have means for saying that, but his morals are wrong. Machiavelli shows himself to be a person who does not understand the importance of love and acceptance, for him all that is important is power and conquering. First, he says “A prince should make himself feared in such a way that, though he does not gain he love, he escapes hatred.” Clearly, Machiavelli does not understand the importance of love and respect.
