It’s incredibly evident to the reader that Lord Chesterfield’s son takes advantage of him and this letter is probably Lord Chesterfield’s last effort to guide his son. Lord Chesterfield’s wisdom and core values that he has acquired throughout his life are portrayed into this detailed letter to his son using a variety of rhetorical strategies. In Lord Chesterfield’s introduction to his letter, the atmosphere of the message itself is modest and gentle. He uses his words in such a way that it comes off as if the advice he is going to give is something that his son has grown tired of hearing but Lord Chesterfield is going to share this same piece of advice one last time with his son in a gracious way. One example of Lord Chesterfield’s humble attempt to fill his son with his judgment is through personification: “I know how unwelcome advice generally is;” (lines 5-6).
In the excerpt from the letter written by Lord Chesterfield to his son, he implies that he would like to advise his son and also reveal his own values. The author uses several rhetorical strategies throughout the text, such as anaphoras, rhetorical questions, and metaphors, which indicate his own values. Lord Chesterfield uses long sentences, separated by colons or semicolons, which may suggest he wants to advise his son in a quick, but friendly manner.

The author also continues to explain to his son that he is “absolutely dependent upon him” and that “he neither had, nor can have a

“I became what I am today at the age of twelve”. This quote shows the way in which strong narrative voice is used but also shows how without introducing the protagonist yet we know him we are going to know him through his past and know that we are going to discover what he has become. This is used by Hosseini to frame the character a build a platform that we will return to as we read further in the book. It also uses the idea that the past is everything that you are and is something that you will keep with you forever and something that, even sub or unconsciously decides the path your life will take, as we experience reading The Kite Runner and by reading Amir’s life. Another key part to this chapter is the “pair of kites, red with long blue tails, soaring n the sky.” Not only does this represent the title within the second paragraph in a very figurative a vivid way but leaves the reader with a sense of judgment at the end of the first chapter, with the kites “like a pair of eyes looking down”.

For us, George appears to be like a father figure towards Lennie, he attempts to plan all of their everyday communications to try keep life as normal as possible for the both of them. From the start of the novel, we are immediately informed about George being the leader of this relationship; “They had walked in single file down the path, and even in the open one stayed behind the other.” It would seem to us from that the start that George and Lennie are ‘opposites’, Steinbeck does this to specifically play with the reader and the
