Question:

How does the rhetorical strategy of narrative contribute to the author's persuasiveness?

Inactive
Elena L.
Answer:

Narrative often evokes both ethos and pathos. Narrative often helps the reader feel closer to the argument. However, while narrative is an effective rhetorical strategy, it is only an example of one experience and may not be representative of a larger population.

Question:

Compare Hermia's relationship with her father to the relationship between Oberon and Titania.

Inactive

Answer:

Both of these relationships are examples of violence against women. Oberon seeks to humiliate and punish his wife while Hermia's father aims to control her. If he cannot control her, he seeks her death by law.

Question:

The Merchant of Venice portrays Portia as an extremely capable and intelligent young woman. However, Shakespeare also portrays her limitations and pitfalls. What are her limitations as a woman and her character flaw?

Inactive

Answer:

While Portia is portrayed as intelligent, we also see her mobility challenged by society's limitations on gender. In order for her to move around freely, she wears men's clothes. However, while she is afforded this limited mobility, she lacks compassion and empathy for other marginalized members of society. For instance, while she is 'othered' for being a woman, she cannot emphasize with Shylock for society shunning him for his religion. In the final act, however, she chooses to use her newfound power that men's clothes have given her to humiliate and demean Shylock.
