This democratic leadership style ignites Oedipus’ yearning to save his people. By all means, Oedipus attempts to get ample information concerning Laius’ murderer. He wants the plague to be expiated to the extent of even cursing himself. He proclaims that if by his knowledge the land’s pollution lives by his heart, let his curse fall on him (Oedipus the King lines 270-271). This provides a rigorous proof of Oedipus’ cleverness which can also be likened to the worth he gives to his countrymen’s wellbeing.
His message addressed a couple of specific points like his gratefulness to the American people, the different crises America is facing, how America will overcome these crises, replying to his cynics, addressing the world, and then he reminded America again to be brave like they’ve always been to overcome the hard times (5 Speechwriting Lessons from Obama's Inaugural Speech, (n.d.). His speech had ethos, logos, and pathos throughout it, which is why it was a great persuasive message. According to Aristotle’s three speech situations, this speech used
D. Analysis of Text Has the speaker demonstrated or is it clear that a need exists for a fundamental change in policy? In the speech, President John F. Kennedy challenge to the people when he stated: “Let every nation know, whether it wishes us well or ill, that we shall pay any price, bear any burden, meet any hardship, support any friend, oppose any foe to assure the survival and the success of liberty” (Kennedy). This statement is explaining the importance of the United States being the strongest leadership to protect all the peoples' survival through their hardship to be a success with the liberty for themselves. Most of the people who are living in the villages of the United States with their family are so poor, they are going to work
Discovery of such history had a profound impact on Equality such as when he read the word “I”. It is through man’s writing in which Equality came to understand “the blessed thing which (he) had called (his) curse” (98). This writing had such a positive impact on Equality that he decided to “write the first chapter of new history of man” so that it would be eternal (101). It is through his writing, that Prometheus will be remembered not as a number, but as a hero who vanquishes collectivism. His eternal message cautions the reader of the dangers of an irrational society so that someday man will think twice before chaining himself to the word
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.
Some of President Roosevelt’s greatest accomplishments were the creation of the Panama Canal, the establishment of the national forest’s and wildlife refuges. Roosevelt won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 for his efforts to mediate peace between Russia and Japan (Kelly). The second President I would nominate for the monument would be Franklin D. Roosevelt. FDR took the reins of the United States in 1932 when the country was in the depths of the Great Depression and he immediately went to work in restoring the public’s trust. Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal redefined the role of the Federal Government in the lives of the everyday citizens.
In contrast, John F. Kennedy communicated with the people of the of the United States to help extend a hand to people in poverty. Kennedy commented, “... for man holds in his mortal hands, the power to abolish all forms of human poverty” (p1). He was trying to help all people in America, not just a handful of people. Both speakers have goals for the country; they both just have found different ways of being
Not only does FDR convince the audience to retaliate by appealing to their emotions, but he also convinces the audience that retaliation is necessary by allowing the audience to see the logic behind the attack on Pearl Harbor. He states that "The United States was at peace with that nation and…was still in conversation with its government and its emperor looking toward the maintenance of peace in the Pacific." This proving that the United States had not done anything to provoke this attack. Because the U.S. have done nothing to deserve this attack, FDR believes it is only logical to fight back. FDR wants the people of the United States to know that they do not deserve to be walked on.
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
Churchill stated that what he was saying was not aiming at " recrimination", and all he wanted was to give the people a clear image of England 's situation. Churchill continues his speech by telling his people that instead of worrying about the past, they rather be thinking about the future, and about all the things they could do to gain victory. As Churchill says: "of this I am quite sure, that if we open a quarrel between the past and the present, we shall find that we have lost the future." Churchill also talked about how the people should obey their leaders and trust that were doing what was the best for
