  • Equiano Rhetorical Analysis

    In the passage Equiano uses abstract terms such as bitterly, punished, displease, abandon, distress and violence to describe his state of confusion and betrayal. These words with negative connotations are not directed at Pascal who wronged him, but instead they are directed at himself and God. He believes that he has wronged God in some way, so he repents, “I therefore, with contrition of heart, acknowledged my transgression to God, and poured out my soul before him with unfeigned repentance” (Chapter 5). Equiano then utilizes words with more positive connotations such as, reflected, calmness, good, teach and wisdom to demonstrate the peacefulness and strength that he also finds in God. Although Equiano experiences an array of intense negative emotions, it is his belief that the Lord placed him there for his own good, so that he can in some way learn a lesson; that helps to demonstrate not only his strong faith but also his moral character.

  • Reflective Essay On Unity In Diversity

    Unity in Diversity For a second I was not a teenager, not a female, not a friend of all, not a species. To simply put it, I was just a student eager to learn the mathematical discipline. I entered the O.Henry middle school classroom as sound introduced itself as a symphony of chatter and shuffling. I began to sit by the young male, his skin on the other side of the spectrum. He aggressively sighed. “I don’t sit by your kind” he scoffed. My mind ran at an accelerated pace as I rummaged in my…

  • The Consequences Of Pajama

    Pajama's are comfortable and should be able to be worn. It's not a distraction, they are just clothes. A lot of people get distracted easily and the school is just blaming it on what people wear.

When a girl has a little bit of their stomach exposed they are sent home to change or just yelled at. I know because this happened to me. That's just not right at all. The things that…

  • Literary Devices In Rebecca, By Daphne Du Maurier

    This portion of the excerpt shows the progression of nature into Manderley. An illustration of literary techniques du Maurier uses is in lines 12-15, “The drive wound away in front of me, twisting and turning, as it had always done, but as I advanced I was aware that a change had come upon it; it was narrow and unkempt, not the drive we had known”. Here the narrator is on the path to Manderley, but the path is different from the one she recalls. The change to the setting in Manderley creates…

  • Distraction In Language

    In my case, information isn’t meaningful anymore and is lost within mere minutes. Carr would agree that this is the case for many modern students. If we want to grasp the full meaning of our language not only on paper but also for the purpose we use it for daily, communicating with others, we have to understand how connotations work into modern language.
