GAS! Quick, boys!’ places a confronting reality amongst the literature. In addition, polysyllabic verbs such as ‘fumbling’, ‘stumbling’ and ‘floundering’ force you, the reader to place emphasis on these depictive words which create visuals and mirror those moments of sheer desperation. It is through the controlling techniques of pace and imagery in my poetry that I hoped to depict the violence and utter vulnerability of life at war. However, the horror does not stop there, the dehumanisation is unrelenting.
Ralph is said to have ‘screamed, a scream of fright and anger and desperation.’ Here, the lack of punctuation shows how overwhelming the feelings are for Ralph and how they are uncontrollable. The use of the word ‘desperation’ also shows us how Ralph is so scared and helpless that he has become desperate for survival and consequently screams out allowing the feeling to be free. Because we are able to understand this we sympathise with Ralph, much like we did with Jerry. Jack and Emile are the two characters we despise in
How is the issue of violence represented in the lives of individuals in your core text and in one other related text? Violence is presented in Blackrock and Harry Brown through the issues of, the negative influence of peers, the influence of drugs, and powerlessness. These can be seen in various scenes in both texts where youths are creating harmful situations for themselves and others around them. These issues can be examined in the scene where Ricko and Jared fight which causes the relationship between them to melt. In Harry Brown, night raids turn into a large scale riot which is a powerful example of the negative influence of peers.
Quick boys, an ecstasy of fumbling” and but someone still was yelling out and stumbling” creates the image of chaos and confusion within the soldiers that are being attacked and infected with the poisonous gas (9-10). . Dudly Randal uses many words to describe the image of war, pain and discomfort in order to let the reader relate and feel the agony and suffering these soldiers
The particular news piece portrays teenagers in a negative method by the use of language and structural features. Higgins has written her article in a criticising way in order for the readers to perceive all teens as destructive and out of control. The language features that have been included in the article are, negative emotive language, intensifiers and exaggeration. Whereas, the structural features that were used include the use of bolding specific information and the general order of the information. Due to these factors the article ‘Party crawl turns ugly’ by Kate Higgins, which was published in the Townsville Bulletin is a bias
Emotional abuse includes all the forms of verbal abuse. Emotional abuse is systematic in a way that it brainwashes the victim into thinking they’re worthless. Emotional abuse erodes away self-confidence; a sense of self-worth and it’s often disguised as advice or guidance. Victims of extended emotional abuse often developed emotional scars that are harder to heal than physical ones. Emotional abuse is also used as a way to control one’s partner.
However, it is not until a bit later in the tale that the two themes of sex and violence are obviously linked. This is clearly shown when the protagonist sees “a dozen husbands impal[ing] a dozen brides” in the mirror. The use of the word “impale” here is interesting as it has connotations of violent stabbing and penetrative sex. The Bloody Chamber, I think, is one of the best examples of a tale wherein sex and violence are always linked. In The Snow Child the themes of sex and violence are closely linked.
The author uses satire to accomplish his objective because it is the most effective way to awake the people of Ireland into seeing their own corruption. He uses rhetorical strategies such as sarcasm, juxtaposition, and paradox to compile his proposal. The sarcasm mentioned in the first paragraph, “It is a melancholy object to those who walk through this great town or travel in the country, when they see the streets, the roads, and cabin doors, crowded with beggars of the female sex, followed by three, four, or six children, all in rags and importuning every passenger for an alms.” The sarcasm in this speech is that it’s not obvious whether it is a melancholy for him to see homeless people every day or for the beggar’s way of life. Someone would think that he really sympathizes with the beggars and their way of life almost as if he too was a beggar. However as one later finds out it is not the way he makes it appear because he is nowhere near a beggars state or class and is being only sarcastic showing how the lower class are a nuisance to the select few in society.
This text states of his appearance, “His vesture was dabbled in blood and his broad brow, with all the features of the face, was besprinkled with scarlet horror,” (pg.425). Based on this quote the masked figure is scaring all the guest and giving them something to “fear” about. The quote also is saying that the red scarlet would represent blood for fear for dying. Based on this symbol of the seven apartments would symbolize, life. This text states the symbol of life because, “In the first is blue and vividly blue… second chamber was purple… third was green… fourth was furnished and lightened with orange… the fifth with white… the sixth with violet… the seventh apartment was closely shrouded in
As he says, “it is a high time to face the persecutors who haunt the bright kid with thick glasses from kindergarten to the grave.” The bullying, the teasing, and the harassing for their abilities and their “disgusting taste” must be stopped, as stated in his writing. Using a firm tone toward the issue you can tell he has experienced this, and that connects him deeper with the audience though pathos. Leonid Fridman shows a very negative attitude towards the focus of “Nerds and Geeks.”He supports disagreement through pathos, satire, and a impressive word choice, He over take the mind of the reader with these rhetorical strategies. Through elementary school, middle school, and in high school, everyone needs their nerds and
