He got his point across without offending or being rude instead he decided to use logic to polite alert everyone to the crisis he was seeing. The speech was so well made that even though no one transcribed his words everyone in the room would not forget them. Now hundreds of years later we all know of Patrick Henry’s great speech. Henry believed that Virginia should be free of the practices he perceived to be slaver enforced by Britain.
He sticks to his goal of trying to prove that he is the luckiest man alive during the whole speech by giving several examples and explanations from his life. While communicating this point, he is also showing to the audience that there are many things to live for even when some negative things are happening. Overall, the most persuasive appeal used is pathos because it really makes the audience open up and believe what he is saying. Lou Gehrig’s farewell to baseball speech was about much more than just baseball. It showed people all throughout America that even when someone is going through something devastating, there are still a lot of things to remember to be thankful for.
His use of metaphors to establish credibility, imagery to provoke fear and rage, and rhetorical questions to catch the audiences attention are just a few of the different persuasive techniques Henry used in his speech. In the end, Henry was successful and did manage to get the colonists to go against Great Britain, and made many rethink what they had previously thought or believed in. He was straightforward and daring in his speech, ending it strongly and without any doubt or hesitation: "...give me liberty or give me
Paine’s purpose of using imagery is to make his words and ideas easier for the continental army to go and fight for their freedom. Imagery is similar and supports the inclusion of repetition. Thomas Paine uses imagery to make things easier to understand just like if he were to repeat something many times to make it more clear. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” He is describing how much tyranny is like hell and how hell is not easily conquered. He gives the appeal that we must not be afraid and in the end we will have great triumph.
Henry states that the other men of the convention have different views than his but it would be "treason" if he did not speak his proposition. He continues, saying it is the colonists' duty to follow his call to action. He then infers since he is "guided... [by] the lamp of experience" the others should trust his views. Next he builds up the emotion in the room by using imagery and allusions to call to mind the Britain's recent actions. Henry remarks that the colonists' false hopes in the British "will prove a snare to [their] feet."
Even at Julius Caesar’s funeral, he shows respect to him, but shows the citizens his actions were for their own safety. He did what others would dare to never do, kill the king to save Rome. In Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, Brutus has the more effective speech because he is more persuasive with motive, pathos, and character trait; he provides a powerful speech that is more loyal and humbling to the country of Rome. The literary term motive, applies to the reason a character does something, and Brutus and Marc Antony both show motive in their speeches. For instance, Marc Antony’s motive for refusing to read Julius Caesar’s will is to avoid
Antony tells facts, “implementing logic”, that the people have witnessed and that’s why his speech is better than Brutus’s. Antony giving facts that the people know of using lothos, ethos, and pathos in his speech was a great way for his speech to be much better than Brutus’s. As Brutus is speaking about Caesar during his funeral he remind the people that they did love him indeed, but what Brutus has done is far greater than what Caesar would have done. “did love him once, not without cause: What cause withholds you then, to mourn for him?” (2.2.30-31). Antony was telling the people of Rome that it was logic they did love Caesar, but since he is gone, why do they still love him?
The Persuasive Patrick Henry And The Colonists Patrick Henry’s “Give me liberty or give me death” speech is one of the most remembered speeches in US history. The colonists followed Patrick Henry because of his motive and drive to do what was right for his country and persuaded them pretty good using Logos, Ethos and Pathos. Patrick Henry persuaded the colonists using Ethos and Logos the most by using Logic and Ethics to get the colonists on his side. Henry’s leadership not only persuaded the colonists but also helped them see something to fight for and risk their lives to make this country free and independent. From the start, it was important to get as many colonists on his side and recruit more and more.
Martin Luther King’s enthusiasm towards his cause in the “I Have a Dream” speech is as strong as America’s desire to win the Vietnam War. In this great speech, Martin Luther King Jr. creates a story in the form of a speech by including so many great traits, such as his vivid figurative language, encouraging statements, and his will to stand up for the people who are to scared to do it for themselves. In this text, King mostly states how corrupt our nation is and how we need to fix it. I believe King’s central idea in his speech is he wants to end racism; in his speech, there are three attributes that show how badly he wants to end racism, and they are he will not rest until racism is gone, he doesn 't want violence to threaten his chances of abolishing racism, and he believes our world can be better than this.
That we should end slavery and all the racism out there, to have a free and equal country again. In conclusion, Abraham Lincoln delivers a very persuasive speech due to his use of figurative language and utilization of pathos styled techniques. He uses these examples very well in his speech to persuade people to believe him when he says that these men that died in the battle of Gettysburg shouldn’t of died in vain, that they died for a reason, and that reason is that all men, no matter the race or religion, should be treated
In conclusion, Patrick Henry ordeals a well-developed meaning to the delegates and the President that they will not express fear and lose an act of bravery to the British. With an organized speech, he conquered the fear of the British being lifted from the convention to represent this act of freedom. Hopefully that Henry convinces the delegates through God and ideals repetitions to follow his speech in the victory of
"It appeals to the emotion of the thought on being a slave. Inspiring people to be free rather than being under British control. Another example is when he says, "It is natural to man to indulge in the illusions of hope," Explaining that sense of peace feeling we want to have. By appealing to the audiences emotions he made them quick to remember everything in the past they went through with Britain. Finally the last appeal Patrick Henry uses is logos appeal to thinking and the audience’s logic.
Which I agree to because no matter how you approach something as long as it is for the right purpose and is the truth. It is bound to get some attention and probably some light into other peoples’ mind because the more people who agree with you the more support and progress the situation would go through. There would be some people like Donald Trump who would say “find another nation to call home” which he actually said because he knows that he it telling the truth. In the national anthem it literally says that people where satisfied with the death of slaves who had freed themselves. And how it was the bravery of the black to fight the wars and battles for the
“America has given the Negro people a bad check, a check which has come back marked “insufficient funds.”’(King, 1) This is an argument that made sense. Of course Ethos because he is the one who is credible for his speech. He also used pathos because the entertained the young audience in his crowd. The devices he made was appropriate and appealing to the audience. “With this faith, we will be able to work together, to pray together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, knowing that we will be free one day.”(King, 3) This made an argument because it shows and explains how they will be stop being segregated when they get their rights.
Firstly, Bambara’s use of metaphor brings out how Granny believes that they deserve privacy, by showing how Granny felt about the suicidal man having his privacy invaded. Secondly, Bambara uses the symbolism of the camera to reveal how Granddaddy believes that he and his family deserve privacy, and that he is willing to do anything to protect it. Many people around the world also believe that they deserve privacy, and that they will do anything to protect it. One person that exhibits these beliefs is Edward Snowden. He believes that people deserve privacy so much that when he found out that the government was spying on the American public he ignored the chance of going to prison and released all of the details about how the government was spying on the public.
