Question:

What is Anthropomorphism?

Inactive
Cassandra C.
Answer:

Anthropomorphism is a long (and tongue-twisting) word meaning the attribution of human characteristics and behaviors to a non-human entity, like an animal or object. We see this in writing everywhere from Rudyard Kipling's "The Jungle Book", to academic science articles where scientists discuss what circumstances bacteria "prefer" (cells don't actually have the capacity to like or dislike something!), to a kindergartner drawing a speech bubble above a doodle of her dog. It can be a fun writing tool to create humor, appeal to a wider audience (the general population loves animals) and facilitate creativity!

Question:

How large is the chorus in Henry V?

Inactive

Answer:

Trick question! The chorus is actually played by a single actor who functions as the narrator in the story. Chorus helps to guide the audience through the play, even calling on them to use their imagination to analyze flaws in the plot and characters and insert themselves into the world. Chorus asks the audience to forgive the simple means offered by the Elizabethan stage: But pardon, and gentles all, [Forgive us, and be gentle!] The flat unraised spirits [actors!] that have dared On this unworthy scaffold [the stage] to bring forth So great an object: can this cockpit hold The vasty fields of France? or may we cram Within this wooden O [The Globe Theatre was shaped like an O] the very casques That did affright the air at Agincourt? [Can this theater hold the helmets - probably meaning the noble soldiers - that invoked such fear at Agincourt?]

Answer:

1.) Ethos: the appeal to credibility and ethics 2.) Logos: the appeal to logic 3.) Pathos: the appeal to emotion These appeals are excellent tools with which to analyze persuasive writing. They allow you (the reader) to discuss what tactics the writer is using to argue their points and even evaluate how successful they are in doing so!
