David Foster Wallace and Ernest Hemingway are two American writers. Even though they come from different generations, both men argue about the same subject, abortion, which is controversial during their time. While both of their short stories using a third person narrative, Wallace portrays his characters’ actions and behaviours by making readers experience their thoughts in “Good People” while Hemingway portray his characters by allowing readers to observe them from the outside in “Hills Like White Elephants”. Firstly, their different writing styles can help the reader to either understand the characters relationship quickly or slowly. Next, it would seem that the involvement of reader to understand the characters in “Good People” is greater than in “Hills Like White Elephants”.
While both Mark Antony and Brutus use ethos to depict important positions to the audience, Brutus' position captivates the audience and trumps that of Antony's. In his speech Mark Antony describes the friendship that he and Caesar shared, "He was my friend, faithful just to me," then continues and provides concession, "But Brutus says he is an honorable man." This shows how Antony believes that he is more prone than Brutus to know and understand the character of Caesar. On the other hand Brutus takes on multiple positions by targeting multiple types of people, "Romans, Countrymen, and lovers! Hear me," to provide for more people in the audience to open up to what he is saying, and as a result gain more support.
Antony’s rhetorical question was very effective since he is making the people question Brutus’s claim. At the same time, Antony uses rhetoric to persuade the Romans. While Antony is questioning the citizens why they do not love Caesar anymore, he uses pathos. He asks, “what cause withholds you then, to mourn
Antony’s speech begins with him using verbal irony to deconstruct Brutus’ argument as well as a mix of logos and pathos to appeal to as many as possible. Throughout his speech, he also uses visual aids and figurative and physical language, as well as logos, ethos, and pathos to turn the hearts of as many men as possible. Antony is a master at knowing his audience, something that Brutus lacked. This is the reason Antony was able to turn the hearts of the Romans. Antony was closer with the plebeians than Brutus.
In the play The Tragedy of Julius Caesar one of the main characters Caesar is killed in Scene 3 act 2.Then Brutus and Antony both give speeches about how bad they feel.Brutus gives a good speech by using all three of the rhetorical appeals to persuade the crowd to want to listen to what he say by using logos,ethos,pathos to his advantage.Brutus gives a better speech that draws the audience attention,Antony not as much.Therefor here are some very valid points on why Brutus’s speech used the Rhetorical Appeals better. Brutus uses Pathos most out of all of the three Rhetorical appeals.He tries to use the crowds and the reader’s emotions to win their heart.As Brutus talks to the crowded they are very angry,so Brutus starts off by trying to cool them down.”Be patient till the
“Into what dangers would you lead me, Cassius, that you would have me seek into myself for that which is not me?” (I.II.68-69). In the play Julius Caesar by Shakespeare there are many characters that can be compared and contrasted; two of those characters are Brutus and Cassius. Brutus and Cassius both have quite a few similarities as well as their differences. One of the few similarities that both these characters share is that both were involved in the assassination of Caesar; the difference between these two is their personalities. Cassius likes having everything his way while Brutus cares and loves for his country, Rome.
In the play "The Tragedy of Julius Caesar" by Shakespeare, two individuals named Brutus and Antony give a funeral oration to the people of Rome in concern of the justification of Caesars death. Both of them share an opposite view towards the death of Caesar, Antony thinks his death was unjustified, while Brutus believes in the opposite. Despite the fact that Brutus was able to deliver a better ethical appeal. Antony delivers a more persuasive rhetorical speech since he appeals to the crowd more with his emotional and logical appeal Ethical appeal was used by both individuals in their funeral orations, evidently Brutus was able to execute a better ethical appeal than Antony. Brutus wanted to make the people of Rome feel like the death of Caesar was necessary for the sake of Rome.
Because Brutus uses prose, it is a reflection of his rational argument defending his reasoning for assassinating Caesar and his own rational thought process. Mark Antony however, approaches the audience with a more emotional and tactful oration. He speaks in iambic pentameter, which is common when one is speaking emotionally and passionately, as in the case of Mark Antony. This is an illustration of his emotion eliciting speech and passionate rebuttal of Brutus' accusation of Caesar's ambition. As for the actual content of the speeches, Brutus presented a group of more rational and intentional ideas rather than Mark Antony's sympathy and tact.Brutus' preliminary addressing of the crowd and speech structure support his argument.
In the play Julius Caesar created by William Shakespeare Julius Caesar is becoming the ruler of Rome. However there are some people who are called conspirators that do not want him to be crowned ruler and want him to be over thrown. So the conspirators try to convince others to help them overthrow Caesar. In order to do this they use multiple tactics and make many attempts to persuade everyone to join them, for example Cassius fabricates a petition, Cassius makes Brutus believe he is more important then he actually is, Cassius leaves a letter in Brutus's room telling him that he has to recognize certain features about himself, and Brutus assures the Plebeians that some things are necessary. When Cassius creates the fake petition he makes it seem as though there are many angry Roman citizens who want Caesar removed from the thrown.
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. If King were still alive, he could improve by still incorporating his current techniques, but use them more so. King is a tremendous speaker and in large part does not have much too improve on in terms of the content he uses in his speeches, the organization of his speech’s, and the way he delivers his speech’s.
