I am going to take a journey to rhetorically analyze this twentieth-anniversary commercial by explaining both the positive and negative aspects and use what the average viewer and the fan might notice. I will get the negative aspects out-of-the-way. Firstly the commercial uses a lot of jump cuts due to chopping out forty seconds of the original one minute and ten-second commercial, but it is not the commercials fault.

    that elevate dogs and cats to something akin to children. Those countries that elevate the animals find that eating dogs or cats is a taboo that should not be crossed and those who do are treated with hostility and hatred.

  • Charlotte Mew's Poetic Voice

    Charlotte Mew (1869-1928) is the first selected woman poet in this study.

Thus Victorian and feminist approaches are used in examining her poetry. Mew's poetic voice is an integral link in women's writing from the end of the nineteenth century into the first two decades of the twentieth century in that it enables contemporary…

  • Objectification In Great Expectations

    The persona of Havisham lacks stability and the relationship in ‘Quickdraw’ is whimsical and fast-paced, emphasised by the two lines: “you ring, quickdraw, your voice a pellet in my ear, and hear me groan”. These erratic verses are followed by the crux of the poem, cleverly disguised by Duffy through the use of enjambment. If lines 5 and 9 are put together, they read “you’ve wounded me through the heart”. This ingenious manipulation of structure intensifies the meaning of the poem and makes us…
