Writing information that touches the reader emotionally, it feels as if Abramsky is trying to make the reader feel bad for the prisoners. Other than just providing an article full of guilt and sympathy, he delivers outside sources and statistics. Overall, I believe that Abramsky uses pathos in an unfair way, and finally logos and ethos in a smart and effective way. First off, in Sasha Abramsky’s, “When They Get Out,” Abramsky uses pathos and appeals to the reader’s emotions by painting a visual of the life of inmates in isolation. He says, “The inmates are often tormented by headaches.
The work of Riis inspired Lincoln Steffens, the man considered to be the "godfather" of investigative journalism. "He (Riis) not only got the news; he cared about the news. He hated passionately all tyrannies, abuses, miseries, and he fought them. He was a terror to the officials and landlords responsible, as he saw it, for the desperate condition of the tenements where the poor lived. He had exposed them in articles, books, and public speeches, and with results.

The speaker also narrates the violence surrounding the Miners’ actions with detailed aggressiveness even if he is not present to see it which is his way of expelling the frustration he has towards the brothers. This occurs when the narrator explains the psychological process of a teacher when one of the brothers masturbates in her class: ‘She felt she could beat him to death with all the bones in her body, her bones knocking against his until one or the other turned to dust and fluid marrow’ (p.72). This passage is an instance of catharsis because Ken expresses his own desires of revenge throughout it. Every Miner’s action then described is more appalling than the precedent, which makes the reader and the speaker’s wait for the brothers having what they
One such flashback “the japs’d come round and beat us for the fun of it”. By using visual imagery in an innocent woman’s gives a description of the horrendous environment of the prison camp. The inhumane beating of civilian emphasizes the grotesque nature of camps. The ongoing physical abuse from the Japanese soldiers became a motif throughout the play evokes pathos and the understanding of the barbarity of the war time environment. Another visual imagery use the emphasis the horror of war is “get down on all fours… hack at the earth” which demonstrates the intense work the prisoners had to endure; this evokes a sense of pity and gain sense of sympathy from the
Now, in part three of the book this is where he gets punished for his actions and the process of turning him “sane” begins. The process of punishment which Winston experiences, reemphasizes the theme of fundamental horror of physical pain, all that is happening to him cant be stopped, he is under the control of the party through O’Brien who is more then determined to change Winston. In this part of the book, we find out that Winston starts thinking that nothing in the world is more worse then the physical he is experiencing. O’Brien’s power over Winston is an example of the manipulation of the mind the Party has over their subjects, it is impossible to resist it as the body too is under control. We know that O’Brien is part of the
The Ministry Of Love, despite the name, is a place of torture for prisoners that have been captured by the thought police. It is constantly bright and strains people's eyes and the guards torture the prisoners severely. The guards beat them with metal rods and allow them to heal a bit and then continue to beat them. The guards have tortuous weapons that they use on the prisoners and the prisoners are barely given enough food to survive. When O'Brien made Winston look at himself in the mirror, Winston could not recognize himself.
Section 1.1 Beloved Morrison portrays Sethe as a character whom widely faces physical and mental oppression throughout Beloved. Sethe’s recollection of the nephews attacking her can be viewed as a form of physical and mental oppression. “One sucking at my breast, the other holding me down”, the use of the cacophonic verb “sucking” accompanied by the repressive verb “holding” emphasises the brutality and aggressive nature of the act, physically oppressing Sethe; while the personal pronoun “my” highlights the perversion of it. “Their book reading teacher watching and writing it up”, Morrison’s use of the verbs “reading” and “watching and writing” creates a lexical set of learning, this could infer that School-teacher is using the attack as an experiment. However the verb “watching” could allude to the Male Gaze, a term coined by Laura Mulvey in 1975.
KEITH MOORE CASTRATION AND JUDGES 11/3/11 JADM Week 2 Assignment Castration is defined as being rendered impotent or to deprive of vitality especially by psychological means. For men it is to deprive of the testes and for females to deprive of the ovaries. There have been lots of questions being raised about castration being used as punishment for criminals like rapists, and child molesters. I myself find this interesting because until I researched the topic I learned that there are two ways of castration which are surgically and chemically. Usually when castration comes to mind most people think of the chopping off of a person’s private parts.
