Similarities and differences are present between nearly anything. For instance, two books can be compared in regards to their themes. Likewise, multiple people can be contrasted in regards to their personality. Similarities and differences can be good and bad and they can also help one to clearly see which of the subjects that are being compared are better than the other. Another example of where two subjects can be compared is in Macbeth and The Social Network, in regards to the characters. One may wonder how such different pieces of work could possibly be compared and contrasted, but after analyzing both pieces, it is clear that such similarities and differences exist. Characters
A library can be a repository of knowledge or a squirrel’s worst nightmare. With this in mind an angle of vision is being created. An angle of vision is not simply written, it is carefully and deliberately constructed through the proper use of five rhetorical strategies. Word Choice, Sentence Structure, Overt Statements, Figurative Language, and Selection and Omission of Details are the strategies used by writers to create the angle of vision. To understand these strategies I have written two paragraphs that are similar in description yet carry vastly different angles of vision.
Would you like chocolate chip cookies or Snickerdoodles? A point by point comparison and contrast blends the similarities and differences equivalent to the snickerdoodle. The block distinctly shows the similarities and then the differences similar to the chocolate chip cookie. Whichever method a writer chooses to use, the results conclude in the same outcome: comparing and contrasting.
To begin with, rhetorical strategies are techniques which writers use in their article to assert and persuade the audience about a specific point. These techniques can include narratives, descriptive, and cause and effect.

The political spectrum in general, have grasped manipulative rhetoric tactics in gaining the public’s support on both sides of the prominent gun possession issue. As everyone knows, the media exploits a multitude of strategies and tactics to influence the community in a specific direction, depending on what opinions they are trying to press on the people.
Comparing two things is like trying to find a flaw in an object. Contrast is different than the rest, or it stands out. Rikki Tikki Tavi is a story written in a book and played as a movie. Rikki Tikki is a mongoose. He fights off snakes and he protects his human family. At first Rikki gets lost by a wave of water, but then he gets taken by a nice and friendly boy named, Teddy. Teddy and his family care for him and watch over him. Although the movie and book have similarities, but they both give different details.
Using rhetorical strategies is a very difficult writing style to achieve, it requires patience, organization and the strategic use of different words. Rhetorical strategies such as ethos, logos, and pathos are very simple to define, but using these strategies in writing, is a very complex skill that I struggled with prior to taking English 1301. After creating a Prize presentation about different rhetorical strategies, writing a rhetorical analysis essay with the aid of Purdue Owl, became more understandable. Prize presentations made it easier to understand difficult materials because my professor made other students and I represent each topic with an image and explanation. By allowing students to use Purdue Owl as a writing tool my professor
In this entry for chapter three of, Writing about Writing by Wardle and Downs, the main goal is to introduce ideas of using rhetoric as a research device. Overall, rhetoric is a very broad topic, so to make the topic easier for people to digest, it has been broken down into many different sub terms and criteria’s. One of the first ideas brought up concerning rhetoric is rhetorical theory. Rhetorical Theory help’s people understand different aspects of writing, “how writers, texts, readers, and contexts interacts; how writers come up with what to say; how texts construct knowledge; and how people make up their minds, and change them.” (318) These four concepts are essentially the building blocks of creating “accurate conceptions of writing as
Though these two perspectives elicit no fewer contrasts than comparisons, their juxtaposition highlights the workings of the
Point-by-point analysis and subject-by-subject analysis are the most common ways to develop a compare and contrast paper. The point-by-point method requires you to discuss each point of comparison or contrast between each subject before you discuss a new point. Conversely, the subject-by-subject method discusses each point for one subject before discussing the related points for the second
Definition: An analogy is a comparison between one thing and another, usually for the purpose of explanation or interpretation. It is similar to metaphor and simile; they are usually used in conversation to relate one situation to other.
There is one way to think about allegories i.e. as extended metaphors, or comparisons, between two things, usually regarded as unalike. Since they are intended to make big concepts much more accessible, allegories are not always obvious.
