This doesn’t give the soft tone of sympathy but a harsh tone of death. Hersey likes to use alliteration to evoke a feeling into the reader’s mind of pathos, more if he or she had just read the story. Alliteration offers the chance of more feelings and emotions to readers throughout the story. John Hersey’s Hiroshima is not only a detailed account of the Americans bombing Japan in 1945, but he inserts rhetorical devices that encourage readers to feel pathos while reading.
An example of some of the things that George Henderson says in his paper about poverty is, “Poverty is staying up all night on' cold nights to watch the fire knowing one spark on the newspaper covering the walls means you’re sleeping child dies in flames. In summer poverty is watching gnats and flies devour your baby's tears when he cries.” In the novel Enrique’s Journey, by Sonia Nazario poverty is everywhere, some places are just worse than others like families living in shacks, only being able to eat one meal a day. These authors and others are pointing out an indisputable fact. Poverty is everywhere and everyone needs to be doing something about it. Sonia Nazario describes a very graphic picture of children without one or any parents, food, shelter, and clothing, which many Americans choose to ignore and go about their business like it doesn’t happen here and around the world.

According to Holden, Allie was the nicest person he knew and Holden compared his brother to innocence. On the day Allie died Holden was so broken up that he did not know how to express his feelings about the event. Holden could not deal with the immense pain of losing Allie, so he started to induce physical pain on himself. Holden said “I slept in the garage the night he died, and I broke all the goddam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it” (Salinger 39).

(Page 18) The reader can assume that Seymour Glass could no longer cope with his life after he returned from the

For months these men lived in these trenches without baths, little food and knowing that death or mustard gas awaited them.
