all that it can project in such a short description. Overall, imagery clearly wins this round over hyperbole because it excels in all three categories, where hyperbole tends to lack. Final Four Round 1: Metaphor vs. Irony Metaphor takes the win over irony as is the superior term in this semi-final matchup. Metaphor is a more useful and frequently used rhetorical choice compared to that of irony. Irony is the cooler term out of the two due to the way it can twist and bend your mind, but the fundamental qualities of a metaphor make it the obvious winner of this competition. I chose metaphor as my winner because it is the more useful term out of the two and is more frequently used in literature and article work, even though it is deficient in the cool category. Final Four Round 2: Allusion vs. Imagery For a trip to the championship game, imagery grasps the final win of the night over the opponent allusion. Imagery was too much for allusion, with its overpowering use and frequency compared to that of allusion. Although allusion and imagery have different techniques in demonstrating why the author does what they do, imagery does a better job of setting the scene and getting the point across compared to allusion. Allusion may boast being cooler than imagery as a word and definition, but it comes just short of making it to the final dance as imagery glides to the finals. I chose imagery over allusion as the winner because of its unlimited use and frequency of use unlike allusion. Championship Game: Metaphor vs. Imagery The ultimate winner of this whole tournament would have to be imagery. There has been stiff competition all tournament long, and the final two competitors are the strongest of them all. Imagery would have to win over metaphor because although both are used pretty frequently, the depth that imagery provides in all aspects of texts is unmeasurable. Metaphor put up a good fight, but in the end came just short of the win. Imagery checks off all categories as the strongest competitor and is deserving of this win. I chose imagery as my ultimate winner over metaphor because it usefulness is unmatched, and it is the cooler term because of all it can do. Better luck

next year metaphor, imagery is the champ! March Madness Tournament Champion Rhetorical Term: Imagery Imagery is the 2019 March Madness tournament champion! This rhetorical term week after week beat out the competition to be in this position. The intricate way that imagery can bring a piece of text to life and give it added depth and perspective makes it a very powerful rhetorical choice. Imagery has been utilized over such a long period of time by so many authors and writers, and it never fails to elevate writing to the next level. It is the coolest term in the way it can manipulate your mind to envision what the author is envisioning, and the exposure in texts and writing makes it easy to comprehend and mirror. This is a well-deserved win, and a quality rhetorical choice for all to use to improve their writing and make it stronger.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
