Rhetorical Analysis of “These Hands” by Ben Carson Author, surgeon, Christian, and philanthropist, Ben Carson, in his political commercial, “These Hands,” advocates that his hands can heal America. Carson adopts a sentimental tone in order to appeal to the viewer’s emotions and create a sense of hope for the future.

In Joyce Carol Oates’s suspenseful short story, ”Where Are You Going, Where Have You Been?” antagonist, Arnold Friend, uses faustian tactics such as flattery, fear, and lies to manipulate and overpower the protagonist, Connie. Equivalent to the Devil, Arnold Friend uses flattery to deceive Connie. Throughout the story it is evident that Connie is suffering from a deficient amount of attention from home.

He used Logos and Pathos by telling facts about racist voting restrictions and then phrased it in a way to make the crowd give sympathy. An example of him using logos and pathos is when he said: “Yet the harsh fact is that in many places of this country men and women are kept from voting simply because they are Negroes.” He said this right after he said “Every American citizen must have an equal right to vote.” these two lines shock the audience.
