  • Rhetorical Analysis Of The Death Of A Moth

    Rhetorical analysis of “The Death of the Moth” by Virginia Woolf “Where there’s life, death is inevitable and the greater fear of death, the greater the struggle to keep on living”, an idea well represented in Virginia Woolf’s “The death of a moth” (Mo Yan Quotes). In Woolf’s book, she describes a moths struggle to hang on to its life before accepting its fate and allowing death to take its last breath away. The longer the moth tried to stay alive, the more it endured. The cycle of life is depicted, showing that no matter how much we try to avoid it, it is inevitable, a part of everyone’s life. Woolf portrays this idea, the struggle between life and death by using rhetorical employing an emotional appeal, visual imagery, and anthropomorphism. One of the most used emotional appeals in Woolf’s excerpt is pathos, the appeal that evokes feelings. Woolf touched many readers soft spots when she said “when there was nobody to care or to know” after the moth died. This is many of the readers biggest fear, everyone wants to be remembered when they die. Her goal is to make the readers feel empathy towards the moth. This allows the readers to “identify” with the idea that even though death is inevitable, everyone must always tell others how much they mean to them and remind them that they are loved. Everyone is going to die one day but that doesn’t mean that anyone should think that they are insignificant, further showing the struggle of organisms. Another example where the use of…

  • Virginia Woolf Professions For Women Analysis

    gender makes the society be unfair to female. When “like a girl” is accepted as a joke, it is pathetic indeed. There is never a standard way of living or behaving as women. Thus, the public should never impose a kind of description on it, either. Therefore, women must stand out for themselves, full of bravery and confidence. The similar concepts of self-improvement from “Stop your search engines” written by Peggy Orenstein and Virginia Woolf’s essay actually help me to think deeply about the…

  • The Importance Of Beauty In The Eye Of The Beholder

    “Beauty is in the eye of the beholder,” implies that beauty is subjective and that one decides what is beautiful and what is not. However, there are things that are objectively beautiful that were created by God. Beauty fits into Christianity because of these inherent beauties, as seen, in nature, in things that are symmetrical, and in things that have order. Inherently beautiful things were created to draw our attention to value and importance in God’s design. First, God created nature to be…

You also had a very nice case presentation this Friday. I am pleased you shared with me in your reflection that you want to advance your case presentation…
