Inthis situation the rhetoric usage in literature works are at use tocreate a compelling story. The writer has to use all the bestapplication methods at his or her disposal to make sure that thereader is moved and interest to go through the written work iscreated. Many writers can easily scheme some piece of work and getbored before the main ideas are home. The availability of rhetoricsituations has prompted writers in completely doing good research onthe best techniques and more coaxing themes to apply so as to win theattention of the readers. The audiences may change to a liveperformance which makes the situation more complicated. In suchinstances, the script writers and the performers must ensure theycreate the urge in the audience which gives them a chance to belistened. The rhetorical observation and approach examples have beendiscussed below.
Thelanguage that authors chose to use in their sets of writing mattersmost. First, getting the best language to present a piece of workwould most probably attain a strong interest from the listeners. Ithas been stated on many occasions that good rhetoric gives a stableplatform for writers to create and assess information effectively.This ability once thought to be by an old Philosopher Aristotle hasenabled individuals to different perceive the information shared byothers.
Hyperboleis a rhetorical approach exhaustively used by many authors in theirworks. This method exaggerates the first or natural occurrence tocreate an attention that would catch the interests of the readers orthe audiences. In the film Borat. When the persona says, "Myname-a Borat. I like you. I like sex. It is nice." This is thenew approach and take of events that many people have been madebelieve about the United States of America. Due to culturaldifferences and less exposure or media laws that restrict so manyprograms even those about sexuality in the Middle East nations givesthem a wrong implication of the United States. Immigrants from thesecountries as seen from the play tend to see a very different lifeafter visiting the great nation USA, and many things are never totheir expectations.
Theauthor has tried to bring in exaggeration by pasting a very differentUSA in the minds of the viewers from his first statement. Later on,the author knows that having taken away the viewers’ minds then hecan quickly pass his message to the audience. It is against the oddsto only say that natives Americans have eroded their culture andrespect to personal contents over sexuality issues. The hyperbolicstatement is actively pulling the audience into knowing if that washow things worked in the USA. The writer`s targets wits and he trulyachieve that. All the borrowed accent and the funny lines pull theaudiences closer to following the events of the movie. It is clearthat the script writer was very innovative to take the rhetoricapproach and it is very simple to read and assess. The language usedis a layman and easy to understand.
Thehyperbole was indeed very useful. Anyone viewing the play would havea different feeling on hearing this from the performer. But, it isjust an overstatement. The use of these materials in writing the toneof the statement seems amusing. On the other hand, not many MiddleEast people took it positively. The tone seemed harsh, and they evenwent on and banned the Borat movie from being sold in Pakistan andIran for example. Some of the scenes are varied and culturallyobscene across the different audiences. The biggest question readersshould ask is that would the movie be humorous as experienced withoutthe rhetoric devices such the hyperbolic statements? The integrationof these declarations and this method in this piece of work has alsobrought an account into another one. Allusion, the writer, referswhat he finds in the USA regarding lifestyle and other events tohappen way back in his native country. The allusion helps to sharethe author`s information on cultural conservativeness.
Inthe second account, the focus is directed on how the author usedamplification. It is mostly used when the point to drive home has tobe keenly stressed on to so as the listener in the audience or theviewer takes it into consideration. Emphasis is a basic way of makingsurecertain information is reliable or relevant to the audience. Useof amplification provoke audiences into strongly considering theinformation delivered as very critical. It is a rhetorical approachthat was never left out when the outgoing United States President,Barack Obama’s speech was written. The author of the second speechof inauguration wisely put the art of writing into usage.
Fromthe statement, “What makes us exceptional-what makes us American-isour allegiance to an idea articulated in a declaration made more thantwo centuries ago.” In his words, we can see that the president wasvery straight forward and incisive about claiming the power of hiscitizens. The writer of this speech was trying to make the premierallege to his people that they were together and their strength wasin what they believed.
A good rhetoric device and well used within context. Unlikehyperbole, amplification seems to very effective for an author. Inthe first case, we saw that the exaggeration was misunderstood by thenatives of the Middle East. While in this case, the repetition goesout very evident that every individual has it that the leader oftheir own meant business. It is very easy to communicate to theaudience with amplification rather than employing hyperbole. Theauthors` choice of rhetoric scheme would be influenced by theliteracy levels. Some techniques such as exaggeration would require asharp mind to understand the author’s intentions. That compels someauthors to deliver little than expected and thus a failure inliterature art.
Thetone in our second scheme cannot be otherwise misunderstood like inthe first case. It is very clear of the hope and direction in theauthoritative powers bestowed to the presidents through the ballot.It is a method that persuaded many of the Americans to listening andwatching President Obama address the nation. The information andlanguage used remains within context unlike in the case of Boratwhere it might have triggered some erotic message.
Insummary, Repetition in some other context it may create a rhythmwhich can be musical that is if well utilized in other pieces ofwriting by the authors. The use amplification also generated otherdevices within the context such as Anaphora (WE) as the speechcontinues it has also got many other rhetorical forms. It is evidentthat every can use the rhetorical methods at their disposal to createa super delivery way of information dissemination. The methods arealso very paramount as they keep the audience involved and active bypersuading their interest.
