Rhetoric Analysis of an excerpt from The Jungle by Upton Sinclair Rhetorical devices are used to strengthen writing and add dimension. When used properly, they add layers of complexity to any prose as well as further evidence for an argument. No one understood this better than Upton Sinclair.

This would ultimately lead to one of his most memorable speeches in United States history, a speech that announced what it meant to be progressive in a time of immorality and unfairness. Rhetorical Analysis Throughout Roosevelt’s speech, his use of diction is prevalent with each sentence he had formulated. Each connotation is used in a way that amalgamates his main idea into a clear picture of the dishonest man and of a dishonest America, and also
William Damon’s “The Death of Honesty” presents a solemn analysis of the decline of modern virtue due to a “dysfunctional tipping point” where honesty is no longer viewed as a moral characteristic worthy of pursuing. Dishonesty is presented as both a virtue and a vice that is shaping our contemporary society. The Hoover Institution of Stanford University published Mr. Damon’s article in 2012 under the Task Force on the Virtues of a Free Society, which would provide a target audience of students
Analysis of The Wasteland by T.S. Eliot Q5 "Much of what Eliot writes about is harsh and bleak, but he writes about it in a way that is often beautiful". Comment fully on both parts of this assertion. Most first time readers of Eliot's work would, probably, agree that his poems read as bleak and depressing.

Drawing inspiration from such imaginary characters Falk first thought to portray Phantom as a wealthy lover boy fighting against all sorts of evil but we see that Falk moved Phantom to the jungle in his first story, “The Singh Brotherhood”3.
