Trust it not,sir; it will prove a snare to your feet. Suffer not yourselves to be betrayed with a kiss.” (Henry 102) Henry uses pathos,using words that have a deep meaning such as “insidious” and “kiss”. The insidious smile makes it seem like the no matter what you do to try to change the British minds such as with the petition, they will always find a loophole or by pass it to continue to have full control over the colonies. They also will make everything seem like it will be better in the future by “giving the colonies a kiss”, but they will be betrayed and be oppressed once the British have full control of the colonies,and by then,it may be too late to
In his speech, Henry state's “Our chains are forged...their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston”. The chains represent the enslaved feeling the colonist have when dealing with the British’s unjust actions. Because of this veiled fear, Henry can amplify it by using the unpleasant imagery to of the clanking of slave chains and exaggerating the sound, as if it can be heard all the way in Boston. The intolerable actions of the tyrannical British forces Henry to invoke the deepest fears of his fellow colonists. By hyperbolizing the potential consequences of the colonists' naivety, it encourages the listeners to want to jump on his cause to prepare for the war against Britain.
Whilst addressing this state of slavery, Banneker declares that the United States has neglected to learn from the mistakes of British tyranny by supporting the "groaning captivity and cruel oppression" of blacks through slavery. The words "groaning" and "cruel" are words that engender an emotional almost horrific response. Using this gruesome diction permits Jefferson to vividly visualize the horror of black slaves in America. Banneker's emotional tone may reach Jefferson, therefore Jefferson may be more empathetic and realize what the wrongdoings of slavery are, prompting the government to end
Hucks guardians, Widow Douglas and Miss Watson, practice Christianity. Huck and Jim on the other hand, believe in superstition: they look for signs for answers rather than God. They look for bad signs in everything; if anything bad happened to them they 're sure to have a sign that was leading to it. Though their superstitions are silly, they do have reason to believe bad things will happen to them: they live in a world where nature is dangerous and people act with hatred. Huck has a realization that the Christian “good’’ isn 't really “good”; they believe Huck will be condemned to hell for saving Jim from slavery.
The Declaration of Independence is a letter to King George III of Great Britain from the American Colonists who are upset of their poor treatment. The Colonists develop their claims by listing what the King has done unfairly, then explain their previous attempts to petition. Their Purpose is to separate the United Colonies from the British Crown in order to live a better life that is not dictated by one man. They establish the righteousness of their beliefs and their want to leave. The Colonists empathise pathos by repeating the same phrase “He is…”.
In grievances fourteen thru twenty one, the word that is being repeated changes to the word, “for”. Lastly, in grievances twenty two thru twenty seven, the word that is being repeated changes back to, “he has”. The repetition of these words creates a hammering type of effect, when it is read by the audience. The List of Grievances is full of the rhetorical device logos. Jefferson uses logos in the list because he’s using actually examples that the British king did, to appeal to the logic of the colonists, about why they are separating from Britain.
Jackie Rios Ms. Thompson AP Language and Composition 21 October 2015 Rhetorical Analysis: “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death” In Patrick Henry’s speech, “Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death”, he addresses the president at the time and all patriots in a motivational and persuasive tone, to act at once against the British in order to as a result gain their rightful freedom. Henry begins his argument by speaking directly to the president and also states his belief in patriotism, thus creating credibility to himself. Aside from this, Henry gets straight to the point to why he is speaking and declares the issue that is bothering everyone, “For my own part, I consider it as nothing less than a question of freedom or slavery; and in proportion to the magnitude of the subject ought to be the freedom of the debate. It is only in this way that we can hope to arrive at truth, and fulfil the great responsibility which we hold to God and
The negative diction and details clearly show that Banneker is dismayed concerning the issue of slavery, while the positive diction show that Banneker is tenacious concerning the need to end slavery. Banneker uses negative diction to let Jefferson know why slavery needed to end; Banneker uses such words as suffer, injustice, and slavery. Banneker uses the words to remind Jefferson about the treatment of slaves was injustice and how the United States once used to be in the same predicament. Banneker also appeals to Jefferson’s Christianity by using these words to show that all people did not have freedom. Banneker uses negative details by using quotes from the Declaration of Independence and the Bible to use against Jefferson.
Our chains are forged! Their clanking may be heard on the plains of Boston!” Henry appeals to pathos here because he emotionally describes how there is no other choice but to go to war and fight the British. He feels retreating to the British would only result in slavery, and not grant the colonies their freedom. He uses an onomatopoeia to create imagery to the people as if they are locked up, and he lets them know just how great and negative impact a retreat would have on the colonies, thus creating an emotional appeal.

The Puritans believed any religious beliefs that did not heed to the Church’s law is ultimately satanic and against God. After Hutchinson’s banishment from their society, the Puritans rejoiced “it was a happy day to the churches of Christ here, and to many poor souls, who had been seduced by (Hutchinson)” (119). This statement by the Puritans helps indicate that any wrong doing against the Church was considered
