These negative characteristics are emphasized through the use of metaphors and, again, personification....   [tags: Literature] 2192 words

When the twin towers fell in 2001, the United States seemed to be thrust into a new world of Weapons of Mass Destruction, Jihadists, and a global fight against terrorism; bombs were dropped, ground forces were deployed in foreign states, and anyone who publicly questioned the urgency o...   [tags: Politics] 1375 words
