Kennedy spoke differently when discussing achievement and success. Patrick was explaining how the American people should wake up and see how England is being unjust. Henry voiced, “ Those who have eyes, but not see, ears, but hear not” (83). He was attempting to wake up the people supporting England, the people are not done, nor finished fighting for this country. In contrast, John F. Kennedy communicated with the people of the of the United States to help extend a hand to people in poverty.
In the speech, titled “The Perils of Indifference,” Elie Wiesel showed gratitude to the American people, President Clinton, and Mrs. Hillary Clinton for the help they brought and apprised the audience about the violent consequences and human suffering due to indifference against humanity (Wiesel). This speech was persuasive. It was also effective because it conveyed to the audience the understanding of
Brutus’ tactics going into his speech were to influence the minds of the plebeians by using logical and philosophical reasoning to expound the death of Julius Caesar. In Antony 's speech, he was able to coerce the audience using emotion and vengeance. He used personal experiences in order to make the crowd question their position. The use of emotion was effective as the plebeians, with chants and pride, supported Antony. Finally, by using her words to make the public consider the facts, to get them involved in chants, and to create an atmosphere of impassioned fury, Emma Gonzalez creates a sound and justifiable claim that the crowd is not only willing to listen to, but truly believes.

Kennedy’s use of antithesis are used to strengthen his argument. He strengthened his argument by inviting the audience to think about what one can do for the country. Another example Kennedy uses, “Let us never negotiate out of fear, but let us never fear to negotiate” (para.
These emotions can be easily seen in many speeches as they’re usual abstract terms that invoke a particular emotion within the audience. The usage of terms and phrases such as, “power to abolish…all forms of human life,” or even, “destruction unleashed…engulf all humanity in planned or accidental self-destruction,” are all used to invoke fear. (Kennedy) This makes American citizens fear for them and also forces them to listen to the solution that President Kennedy would propose. Fear although isn’t the only emotion, there are also many invigorating and inspiring words sprinkled across the speech. Abstract words like, “loyalty” or “liberty,” make sure that there is a sense of patriotism to the ideas that America has been known for.
Because this piece was written to be spoken, the use of repetition has a greater impact. While the audience listens, they can detect the emphasis the speaker puts on certain words. For example, Rowling reveals a specific instance from her past, where a young man who lost everything wished happiness for Rowling’s future. Not only was this ironic considering the horrible acts this man has endured, but it was also very impactful because of the way Rowling depicted it. This highlights another main idea, that life is a gift and there are always people who have it worse.
Oedipus’ typical compassion is tested when his position is at risk, exposing his selfish nature. Oedipus is usually a compassionate ruler. He would communicate with his people and give them a chance to be heard. For example, Oedipus goes to his people and after hearing them speak of their sufferings, he replies, “each of you suffers in himself alone his anguish, not another’s; but my spirit groans for the city, for myself, for you” (Fritt 5). Here, Oedipus is showing his sympathy and pity for his people and that he wants to help them.

Rhetoric was an influential force in both Brutus’ and Antony’s eulogies. This force was presented to the audience by the power of the strong, contrasting opinions of both men. During Brutus’ eulogy, he tries to convince his audience, the people of Rome, that he killed Caesar because he loved him, but he
