Henry V grew up amidst tavern people before he became King, because of the way he was raised he was able to convey well with all of his men unconcerned of their rank or status. Henry was in a position where he had around 10,000 soldiers that were worn down and in a mindset of defeat already, compared to the 50,000 fresh French soldiers. His speech was the turning point in the war and this was before the battle started thanks to the way he was able to make all of his men feel equal and accounted for causing a victory in the battle.
Shakespeare’s play, Henry V, portrays the newly crowned king of England, King Henry V, as a committed, fearless, and relentless leader. France is England’s archenemy and their relationship only worsens after the Dauphin delivers a mocking message to England’s new king. The Dauphin frequently ridicules the English and King Henry, whereas, the King of France, Charles VI, does not underestimate Henry and his people as his son does. (Source B) Throughout the play, the two leaders display their differences in terms of personality, leadership, communication skills, and ethics.
Henry’s temper is hard for him to control because he is sometimes faced with situations when he cannot distinguish between King Henry and friend Henry. This duality, paired with the duality that is being a king is an obvious cause for confusion and rage. Henry had such a strong bond with his old friends, that when his new friends were so quick to betray him he was deeply hurt. Another time Henry exhibits incomplete control of his temper is during the battle of Agincourt. Throughout the battle, Henry’s soldiers have taken many French soldiers prisoner and seem to have the advantage.
He had many wars that he fought in order to increase his land. He grew the country the France with these wars. By growing the land that France owned he increased his power by increasing the amount of people he ruled over, and also gained the respect of the people making it easier for him to be an absolute
Henry was done with all the begging for the British and all the lies that they have given to their citizens, saying that the British are their friends. But in reality the British ministry are not friends, allies, or companions with the colonies. They just want to take over. “We have petitioned; we have remonstrated; we have supplicated; we have prostrated ourselves before the throne….(Para.3, lines 48-50).” What Henry tries to explain is that they tried everything and have no other choice.
He did point out that he was tired of trying to get the England to understand. Patrick Henry was and anti-federalist. He wanted to go to war. He wanted the power of Britain by attacking
Historical Essay #2: James Madison and Patrick Henry Ashleyann Mabatid Azusa Pacific University College James Madison and Patrick Henry In this essay, I will be discussing James Madison and Patrick Henry.

Patrick Henry had the four Rhetorical Strategy to show the power of his argument to fight the England. The England may have had a bigger army but they didn’t give up what they had believed for freedom and to be with their families. Patrick Henry had a goal with the “Speech of the Virginia Convention” that he conquered to make it
His well structured speech touched the people, gave them courage. Henry's speech made them consider he was right and war was soon to begin. Henry's use of of rhetorical devices helped make his speech more powerful. Henry’s use of ethos helps him gain people's trust and helps encourage them to do what is right.
Henry went on to say that they had done everything possible to avoid going to war with Great Britain, but nothing worked. He stated, “we have done everything that could be done to avert the storm which is now coming on” (Shakespeare, 1996, p. 118), meaning that war was already here. This use of symbolism helped back up his statement saying that there was no other option other than to go to war. Henry hoped that seeing that there was no other option than war would make the listeners want to go and fight in a war against Great Britain.
His rhetorical appeal is extremely important in doing this. Henry did many things through the speech to ensure that everyone would have a well understanding of what he is trying to say, such as, using God as a powerful way to get his point across; showing how necessary it is to go to war with England; and proving to his audience that England has blatantly betrayed them as colonist. All three of these rhetorical appeals help Henry throughout his speech to get his audience to change or make them firm believers in what Henry is trying to say. Using these three strategies Henry can easily persuade his audience because all of these things he is saying stop and make them think because the words he uses connect to his audience on a personal
He needed to get them to refuse to be a dog to the British and get the freedom they deserve. He used pathos as a persuasive technique in his speech to highlight fear and emotion to scare the colonists into agreeing with him. “I know of how way of judging the future but by the past.” (Henry 110) This was an effective quote because it is showing no matter what Henry is there with the colonist through this journey and that he cannot tell them exactly what is going to happen, but he can make a presumption based on what has already happened.

First, he threw out the situation to the audience that they won’t have the peace through negotiations, the only way to achieve peace is to fight for their own; the war was around the corner and it was an unconquerable tide. To continuously argue that the inevitability of the war, Henry compared the coming war to the “gale “ that “sweeps from the north will bring to our ears the clash of resounding arms.” And then, he said a lot of questions to raise the empathy of the convention, some of those were rhetorical questions; some were used to inspire people to ask themselves inside.
Shakespeare is known thorughout the world as a genius author. He is a master of using different devices to convey meanings beneath the surface of his plays. Henry VII is no different. In Shakespeare’s play, Henry VIII, the playwright uses allusion, tone, and figurative language to convey Wolsey’s response regarding his dismissal from the court.
