Not to mention questions scattered throughout the entire speech. In the fourth paragraph of his speech, Elie Wiesel asks of indifference, “Is it necessary at times to practice it to keep one’s sanity, live normally, enjoy a fine meal and a glass of wine, as the world around us experiences harrowing upheavals?” This question suggests to the audience that he is not completely against indifference. However, he then goes on to say that while indifference is certainly easier than action, it is not necessarily right. This contradiction makes the audience begin to realize that indifference is wrong. Weisel’s choice of words for his speech is meant to horrify, anger, and otherwise arouse the audience into action.
The reader second guesses their first opinion of him and sees a selfish side to him, as he is drunk at his cousins funeral with no regards to other peoples feelings. These are not the expected actions of a character whose sole purpose is to be comic. Act 2, Scene 3. Throughout this scene, Toby continues to show a different side to the funny personality he is assumed to have. There is something unpleasant about him and he is certainly not simply comic although he does provide some comedy.
The fact that he quickly came up with a fib to tell in front of his guests obviously shows how used to covering up his eating problem he is. Not only is his eating considered highly improper compared to the society he is surrounded by, but Algernon's compulsive eating also reveals men’s weakness in the whole play. A key detail about Algernon's frequent and exaggerated food consumption is that it is always someone else's food, always women’s . In general, it is men, especially men in the high society, should provide food for women and guests. While ,in Algernon's case, he is always receiving food from the women around him, rather than providing for his guests .This fact also observably proves that the men’s weakness in the high society.
Hunter, Sanson, and Mr. Hacklett show huge strides in development that would leave the audience confused and detached from the story. In this first scene, Hunter and Sanson drink to their health. Neither one looks away from the other. This shows distrust of each other, which explains Hunter’s actions in their final battle. Hunter thought to himself how he did not trust Sanson after he “took the glass and raised it in toast.
While Rose showcases the effect of prejudice and its impact on conflict, he endures using his jury, the major influence personal experience has on people, and each other, making the decision from come personally. The play, being set in the 1950’s America, impacts on all the textual concerns that Rose presents. For instance, all the racial tension which created the rift in the 1950’s between different groups of people supported the significance of the play. Personal pressure is a factor which affects conflict, with its power and conformity it can impact on how others think and how they view the whole situation. However, personal experience is also a factor which impacts on every conflict, and from what the person has experienced from their own past, it can change the way that person views the other.
In other words he told the society that they are stuck on unserious matters, while important political events are taking place. Bill Clinton’s goal was to make people get over the scandalous relationship and concentrate on America as a nation or basically subconsciously reproached the nation. Mr. Clinton, in this speech built the next strategy: not to fit the stereotype of a man bringing his apologies, not to be miserable, but to show how strong he is by saying these words aloud and therefore to how strong he can be in any other problem. He claimed to apologize, but at the
Starving for Art When examining artists from the past decade, one characteristic stands out above the rest: artists today are misunderstood. Whether it is Lady Gaga and her interesting choice of dress, the blatant stupidity of advertising, or someone’s opinion of the performing arts, artists tend to get frustrated with those who do not understand their ideas. In Franz Kafka’s “A Hunger Artist”, the Hunger Artist is an example of a misunderstood artist whose audience temporarily enjoys watching him go through the stages of fasting; however, they do not fully understand his reason for fasting. This societal aspect is what the Artist must put up with in order to maintain the attention of his audience. In Kafka’s “A Hunger Artist”, the Hunger Artist is alienated through the audience’s misunderstanding, the nature of his art, and his manager’s intentions for him.
Bill Clinton Rhetorical Analysis In “I Misled the People” and “I Have Sinned” by Bill Clinton, the former president addresses his past affair with Monica Lewinsky and asks the country to forgive him for his lapse in judgement. Clinton delivered “I Misled the People” on August 17, 1998 on national television, and then a little less than a month later he spoke to a more intimate group of people at the annual White House Prayer Breakfast. Both speeches were meant to express his sincere apology for his mistake while one was directed towards the American people, and the other was directed towards a smaller group made up of family, friends, and staff members. In these speeches Clinton connects with his audiences emotionally by using analogies and humor, he builds credibility by using parallelism and religion, and uses both formal and informal diction to present facts about his relationships with both Monica Lewinsky and Hillary Clinton. Clinton emotionally connects with his audiences throughout both speeches by using analogies and humor.
Eventually, he regresses back to childhood and crawls to Stephen, asking him to “hold me” and to “call me by my name”. After this, Weir becomes dependant on alcohol, with clear symptoms of alcoholism; his shaking hands and the “inability to talk sensibly until the liquor had put some strength and reason inside him”. He is also a superstitious man, searching for constant reassurance from Stephen in the form of tarot card reading, finding hope and comfort from the outcomes. His lack of familiarity with women is one that reduces his masculinity, as it is expected of men to be confident and experienced with women by his age. When Stephen takes him to the prostitutes’ house, the old woman said that Weir started to cry, revealing his fear of intimacy with women, a trait unexpected of the typical
Yet what makes this speech powerful is it has the ability to relate to and possibly persuade the audience in an effective manner. This aspect grants him the power to fulfill his life’s purpose which is to educate the audience of the evil of indifference and to learn from past mistakes. Elie Wiesel was a victim of the Nazi hatred toward the Jews in World War II. He was sent to a ghetto and then to several concentration camps. He survived the horror and was liberated by American soldiers, but he has been changed forever.
