Rhetorical devices keep the writing or speech different and more interesting so they aren’t monotone and make the reader or listener bored. Martin Luther King Jr. starts off his speech with a rhetorical device, “I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.” (King) He exaggerates how his speech will be famous and known to everyone, this gets people interested in his topic and makes them want to hear and listen more to see what it is actually about. “I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exhalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight” (King) He over exaggerates that
With his speeches he often uses repetition in his speeches in order to drive home a point. Additionally, King often starts his speeches by saying what changes society needs and then in his second half of speech asks the audience to imagine the change. This style of speech giving is very effective as King is reinforcing his ideas and causing the audience to picture the change he is hoping to achieve.

Here, pathos is very useful in proving Traub’s claim because by the end of the article, the reader will be in complete agreement that newspaper comic strips are a treasure and will soon be a thing of the past. Another instance of pathos is seen in paragraphs three and eleven when Traub references characters and their different personalities from several newspaper comics. By doing this, Traub is effectively appealing to both his intended audience and those who are not adamant newspaper comic strip followers. This is because he is able to effectively point out that every person has a comic strip character that they can relate to, and even gives several examples. Pathos is seen again in Traub’s writing in paragraphs five, six, and seven.
