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.

Alcohol and cannabis were used by the author as devices to break down the barriers between Robert and the husband.
Examining Inherent Sin in Hawthorne’s Short Stories Nathaniel Hawthorne often presents his readers with myriad references to hidden sin in both his short stories and novels. In his short stories, protagonists Mr. Hooper in “The Minister’s Black Veil” and Georgiana in “The Birthmark,” experience the negative social gaze of those around them. For Reverend Hooper, it is his congregation that views his black veil as the symbol of sin or imperfection – there is something abnormal about his wearing of the veil. In Georgiana’s case, her husband, Alymer, views her birthmark as an unnatural imperfection which has manifested itself into the shape of a hand on her cheek.
