Rhetorical Analysis : Lady Lazarus

- First, the poem’s interfering similes and metaphors undermine its formal coherence and consistency. Whereas the foregoing paragraph explains the uniformity of tone, syntax, diction, and purpose that emanates from the poem’s form, its conflicting comparisons make the poem’s subject protean at best and amorphous at worst. I will argue that Lady Lazarus is the latter. Plath employs several similes and metaphors to describe Lady Lazarus, but these comparisons serve only to destructively interfere with one another and thereby create confusion....   [tags: The Holocaust, Nazi Germany, Holocaust victims]

Night, By Elie Wiesel

- The holocaust was a tragical point in history. About six million Jews were slaughtered for no reason at all. Many innocent women, men, and children were killed by the dozens everyday.
