The Rhetoric Situation: The Challenger Address - ... Reagan’s The Challenger Address is widely considered one of the finest speeches of the 20th century (Eidenmuller 27). He proves what magic can happen when there is a mastery of the rhetorical situation. This only occurs when one takes into consideration the four speech elements: audience, occasion, speaker, and the speech ( Zarefsky 13). His audience was on the national level but more importantly an audience of mourners. He made certain to mention and give special attention to all those involved: the crew’s families, school children, NASA employees, and the entire American public....   [tags: American History Speech Analysis]

After several readings; however, one can interpret that both authors have the same message. Even though Thoreau and White use extremely different styles, they both portray nature as the simplest way of life.

Use of Narrative in John Boyne’s The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas - Narrative is a rhetorical structure that distorts reality in order to reveal it.

Through this distortion, Boyne is able to evoke the reader’s empathy, portray the horror of the Holocaust to a younger audience and convey human’s capacity for inhumanity and indifference. This is achieved by Boyne, primarily through the exaggeration of innocence throughout the novel, the content presented to the audience, and the use of a child narrator....   [tags: Holocaust] 998 words

explication of cummings' poem since feeling is first - explication of e. e. cummings' poem since feeling is first       e. e. cummings' "since feeling is first" is about feeling (802).  This is immediately evident from the title and first line, which emphasize the word "feeling" in several different ways.  The stresses on "feel-" and "first," as well as the alliteration between those two words, make explicit their connection and importance, and the repetition of the same line in both title and first line serves to enhance the effect.       The meaning of the first line is clear, but because of cummings' characteristic absence of punctuation and capitalization as well as sentence structure, the next few lines are more ambiguous.  The first three lines together could be paraphrased as, "Because feeling comes first, who cares about the rules?"  Feeling is first in order of importance, and the rest does not matter.  "Who pays attention" is a rhetorical question meaning that no one pays any attention.  However, the ambiguousness of sentence structure means that the last two lines of the first stanza, "the syntax of things / will never wholly kiss you," can also be read together.  Linked together in such a way, this clause means that structure, such as grammar, is not engaging; it does not seize the imagination or emotions the way feeling does....   [tags: since feeling is first]
