Præsentation af teksten

Titel: “Everyone Is Going Through Something” (2018)
Afsender: Kevin Love
Genre: Essay

Kevin Love (f. 1988) er en professionel basketballspiller fra USA, som spiller for holdet Cleveland Cavaliers i den amerikanske NBA-liga. I slutningen af 2017 fik Love et voldsomt panikanfald under en kamp, hvilket inspirerede ham til at gå i terapi og begynde at tale mere åbent om sine psykiske udfordringer.

I dette essay fra 2018 fortæller Love for første gang historien om sit sammenbrud, og hvordan det inspirerede ham til at få en mere sund indstilling til sit eget mentale helbred. 

Uddrag

Nedenfor kan du læse et kort uddrag fra vores study guide til teksten:

Repetition

Though repetition is only used a few times in the essay, this rhetorical device still plays a significant role, as it explicitly serves to underline Love’s most important message: “I want to end with something I’m trying to remind myself about these days: Everyone is going through something that we can’t see. I want to write that again: Everyone is going through something that we can’t see.” (ll. 99-101)

Since the first half of this quote also appears in the title of the essay, it is repeated a total of three times. The repetition serves to emphasize how important Love believes this insight is - not just to himself, but to anyone reading the essay. Also note how he even calls attention to the fact that he is using repetition (“I want to write that again”), to further stress his own firm belief in this message.

The repetition works well because it is an intuitively convincing message that is phrased clearly, which helps catch the readers’ attention when they see the title, and helps them remember the central message of the essay better when it is repeated twice near the end.
