We are the "The Green Room," a constituency of university students who have one single-minded goal: to bring the knowledge of the academy to the public. Though we value what we are able to do ourselves, our real power is in what we are able to help others to accomplish. That is why we are reaching out—we want to help. To this end, the Green Room is committed to diligent scholarship on issues of contemporary relevance, and to sharing what we discover with the world.

Guinevere's Blog #11 Rhetoric
1. Photograph by Dorothea Lange, pg 101 Pearson Reader- "Migrant Mother"- destitute pea pickers in Dust Bowl/Depression era, California, a 32 yr. old mother of severn children. I first saw this picture when reading a book about the Dust Bowl era- this picture is an ex. of powerful rhetoric, and sums up the times.
2. Poetry of e.e.cummings- a subtle rhetoric of communicating with disconnected words that together create images.
