Gettysburg Address Rhetorical Analysis

On November 19th, 1863, Abraham Lincoln composed one of the shortest yet greatest speeches of all time. In the midst of a Civil war, Lincoln commemorated this address with a hopeful, serious, and empathetic tone. His display of tone can best be seen when he appeals to the audience with ethos and pathos when he announces, “We have come to dedicate a portion of that field, as a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live.” Through the speech, Lincoln never addresses the audience as “you,” instead he uses “we,” “our,” and “us,” to connect with the audience. As President of the United States he addresses the people as one collective group; there is no individual who caused the division between….

Literary Analysis

Langston Hughes’ “Theme for English B” is an interesting piece of perspective from an author who is obviously struggling to come up with an answer to what a teacher had thought to be a fairly straight forward question. When Hughes’ instructor asks him to go home and simply put down truth on a single page, it opens his eyes up to all of the things that he has done in his life. In addition to that, it opens his eyes to who he really is, what things drive and motivate him, and how other people have helped to shape him. He touches on certain racially charged issues, though he never really gets into them in detail. For the most part, his writing is a compilation of that several….

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz

Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz was born into an overwhembled Europe on the edge of collapse in 1646. There he would lay the foundations for automated calculations, logical computation, artificial intelligence and binary language. In western thought, Leibniz was grand and impressive, publishing books on law, economics, theology, politics, chemistry, architecture and physics! Nonetheless his work on mathematics and physiology is what made him go down in history. As a young boy his father, Friedrich Leibniz, died in 1652. This left his uncle and mother to educate him until he was allowed into his father’s giant library where he taught himself latin and knowledge at college level. In 1661, at age 15, Leibniz went to the university of Leipzig to get his first formal education to study science, law and….

Nike and King Consumer

Popular culture, indeed, has always held athletes in high esteem, dating back to the days of the ancient Greeks and the first Olympiad events, thousands of years ago.  However, in recent decades, talented athletes in sports which had in the past been relegated to the upper class, such as tennis, are now embraced by the masses of all socioeconomic levels.  A case in point is the Russian tennis phenomenon Maria Sharapova.  Admittedly, she is an excellent tennis player, but there are countless other talented tennis players who have not gotten even a fraction of the media attention as has Sharapova. Taking a closer look at this pop culture frenzy, the adoration that has been showered upon Sharapova and many other athletes comes down to how our culture has….
