Once said by a wise businessman, poet, and humanitarian Samuel Ullman,“Maturity is the ability to think, speak and act your feelings,”(Samuel Ullman). William Bell successfully shows this in his novel Crabbe. Firstly, Franklin Crabbe is a troublesome teenager who is incapable of understanding emotions. Through the novel, readers see his development of feelings towards people and himself. Secondly, Crabbe develops intellectually when he learns that although he is school smart he is not as smart in the wilderness. Lastly, Crabbe is introduced as an antisocial teenager without many friends, except his ‘pal’ Silent Sam (Vodka). Furthermore, Crabbe opens up to his family and makes friends through his journey. Although Crabbe at first is a selfish person, antisocial, and an imbecile, he develops emotionally, intellectually, and socially as a result of his journey in the bush and meeting mary.
Piggy, though not the most memorable in The Lord of the Flies, resonated the most whilst reading this book. Piggy is the stereotypical nerdy kid who seems to be perpetually bullied, even when he is on a deserted island. He has pinkish skin with glasses and asthma with a belly that ate perhaps too much candy from his aunt’s candy shop. While Piggy is almost useless physically, he is very strong mentally, and proves this when he formulates the idea of the conch, but is too weak to blow into it and call everyone. Piggy seems socially awkward, as if he hasn’t spent much times with his fellow peers and rather passed the time with the adults in this life. We see this when Piggy frequently parrots his aunt’s advice such as “My auntie told me not to run… on account of my

Meow Mix Commercial This commercial is for Meow Mix Irresistibles Cat Treats. In the beginning, it shows a cat peeking out from under a pile of laundry. The cat then ducks back down and the owner looks at him. The owner is an average looking, younger woman and the cat is brown with a dark coloring. Next, the cat keeps his head out of the laundry basket and the owner looks happy and surprised to see him there.

Has your happiness toward something ever pushed someone to try something new? In A Separate Piece by John Knowles, Finny starts his college days in the summer of 1942 at Devon.

William Gay’s short story, “The Paperhanger” does an excellent job illustrating the theme that, “You can’t judge a book by its cover.” Today’s society is so focused on outward appearances, that they tend to forget this popular idiom. This expression can be interpreted in many ways, both literally, and abstractly. While a book may appear fun and adventurous on the outside cover, the inside context may lack excitement and adventure. On the other hand, those that look sweet and innocent on the outside may be manipulative and evil at the core. Moreover, those that seem rough around the edges may be the sweetest, most kindhearted individuals on the inside. The main character in “The Paperhanger” is a great example of a man whose outward appearances and actions do not match his inner personality traits. While the paperhanger appears honorable to the outside world, deep down he is devious and spiteful.
Analysis of Rhetorical Appeals a. Pathos Because the advertisement was aired five months after the September 11 incident, there were intense emotions among the American citizens. Budweiser was aware of this and created a commercial with strong emotional appeals. With pathos loaded, the advertisement seems to appeal to the viewer’s emotional senses. In the beginning, a character in the form of a man is fascinated by the horses. The image of the horses is reflected in the glasses of the windows. Business takes place in this area, but he takes a break from all the activities to watch the passing horses because of the awe factor that the Clydesdales stimulates. Thus, as an audience, I will resonate with the man by showing the same reaction. The behaviors of the man are expected to the audience how they should react as well. They are expected to stop every activity they were performing and understand the powerful message conveyed by the majestic creatures.

Right when Twiggy finds a major clue
The trickster character appears in many cultural mythologies across the world and across the span of time. Despite the individual personalities of a trickster being unique across time and cultures there are unchanging characteristics belonging only to tricksters, which still appear in our modern day media. A wonderful example of a modern day trickster, who has lived within our society for the past 85 years, would be Bugs Bunny. Bugs has undergone a few minor changes within his personality and outward appearance throughout his life, yet he is recognizable to the current three generations living within our society today.
