The Emmett Till documentaries had plenty of archival footage that shows the audience the horrific murder of Emmett Till. By using archival footage, the documentaries serve as rhetoric functions providing pathos for emotion appeal and logos to convince the audience. In The Untold Story of Emmett Till, I noticed there was a strong usage of applied specificity. One of the examples of applied specificity is Mamie Till talking about Emmett Till and while she speaks his baby pictures surface onscreen. The filmmaker showing this footage humanizes Emmett Till as more than a corpse.
Whereas, in The Cask of Amontillado, the reason behind the murder is revenge, “The thousand injuries of Fortunato I had borne as best I could; but when he ventured upon insult, I vowed revenge.” Additionally, Montressor’s jealousy is another reason because of which he murders Fortunato. The other difference noticed in the short stories, is that in both of the short stories the aftermath of the murder is different. In The Tell Tale Heart, in the near end of the story after the murder, the narrator feels very happy , and
Although Capote describes the Clutters as a symbolic representation of a perfect family, his importance is to show the difference of lifestyles from Perry coming from broken homes to the Clutters home therefore; he contends family life is a key determinant that can affect a person, later in life. Capote uses an anecdote to help his readers formulate where Perry came from and how he became abnormal. After Perry made an “admission he hated to make” of himself and Dick having to be crazy, after killing a perfect family, Capote says: “His mother an alcoholic, had strangled to death on her own vomit. Of her children two sons and two daughters, only the young girl, Barbara, had entered ordinary life, married, begun raising a family. Fern the other daughter, jumped out the window of a San Francisco hotel.

In Cold Blood, written by Truman Capote, “reconstructs the murder and the investigation that led to the capture, trial, and execution of the killers.” Murders of this kind cause more fear and phobias in not only rural communities, but really any community. The murder of the beloved Clutter family is more widely recognized and emits an abundant amount of fear upon citizens in the small town of Holcomb, Kansas. No one thought such a terrible tragedy could transpire to them… until it happened. There have been similar small town crises throughout history that have left lasting effects on not only the town, but the nation as well.
Murder can be defined as “the unlawful premeditated killing of one human being by another”. How then, are others able to make us sympathize with not only murderers, but people who have committed horrendous crimes? For example, the media is constantly attempting to humanize rapists and even terrorists with phrases like “lone wolf” or “alienated and adrift.” Such phrases make some of us want to pity the criminal. This can be seen when we compare Perry Smith and Dick Hickock from Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood.
