Rhetorical Analysis: Growing Up Empty - ... In her book, Schwartz-Nobel effectively uses logos, ethos, pathos and kiaros to convey her message of hunger and compel the audience to take action against this huge hunger epidemic that she claims is facing America today. Schwartz-Noble manages to successfully deliver this message by brilliantly using all four of these rhetorical appeals. The appeal to pathos is most probably Schwartz-Nobel’s most effective appeal. Evidence of this can be seen from the very first page of her book. Here, she begins to tell the story of traveling back to her old neighborhood, only to find it to be “a distinctly poorer one” than it was in her childhood days (1)....   [tags: Literary Analysis, Loretta Shwartz] 1808 words

This can be because they had the means, ways and opportunity to exploit their situation to pursue the arts. Steven Beller states quite unequivocally "Whether it be Freud, Schoenberg, Schnitzler or Wittgenstein, the number of individuals at the top level of Viennese culture - or rather that type of culture for which Vienna is today so famous - who are of at least partly Jewish descent is so large that it cannot be ignored." (2) And indeed it has not been ignored, rather it has been used to create myth.(3) with many of the authors who write on the Jews of fin-de-siecle Vienna depicting a golden age and of a homogenuous Jewish culture with a shared common identity.(4) Yet Ernst Gombrich recently controversially asserted, whilst giving a lecture on the topic of, "Fin de siecle Vienna and its Jewish Cultural influences", "I am of the opinion that the notion of Jewish Culture was, and is, an invention of Hitler and his forerunners and after-runners....   [tags: European Europe History] 4531 words

Noting that the story’s characters, physical environment, and even its climactic action lacks significant individuating detail, most critics view “The Lottery.” As a modern-day parable or fable, which obliquely addresses a variety of themes, including the dark side of human nature, the danger of ritualized behavior, and the potential for cruelty when the individual submits to the mass will....   [tags: The Lottery by Shirley Jackson]
