In Reagan’s eulogy Thatcher uses pathos to unite herself with the audience, through the mutual feelings of grief and sorrow over losing a friend. In the opening lines of the eulogy Thatcher creates pathos by using diction. In lines one and two Thatcher said that a “Great President… Great American… Great man….” has died. Her choice of using the word great instead of good or any other adjective, effects the audience by showing what kind of man Reagan was. Since death is a universally known topic, it is safe to say that everybody has experienced the pain of losing a great person to death.
I was foolish,” and “I have let you down. I have let down my fans.” He creates an appeal to pathos with this repetition by repeating that he was wrong and foolish. He creates emotion in his words with the feeling of letting down his fans. Woods also creates an appeal to pathos when he said, “I hurt my wife, my kids, my mother … and kids all around the world who admired me. He creates an emotional thought

President Obama follows this event with a speech, its goal being to inform the American people of the death of the man who had caused the death of so many loved ones, and achieves this by using rhetorical devices such as parallel structure and appeals to emotion. In the beginning of President Obama’s speech announcing the death of Al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, he reminds the American people of the tragic events that took place on the morning of 9/11, when “nearly 3,000 citizens were taken from us.” The purpose of Obama painting this image back into people’s heads was to remind the American people of the severity of this tragedy and that this nationwide grief was caused by Osama bin Laden, and he gets this message across so well due to the use of appeal to emotion by stimulating feelings and make possible connections or sympathy towards the victims. He does so by creating an image of things such as “the empty seat
In one instance, it is used to convey that the mourners believe they should try to prevent such a tragedy from occurring again because of the impact the deaths had on them. For example, in the fourth, stanza it states, “for there we strike by day and by night, / there we kick by day and by night, / there we spit by day and by night / until the doors of hatred fall” the repetition allows the reader to realize that the narrator is frustrated by the war that has caused the militiamen to die. The repetition of “there we…by day and by night” indicates that the mourners are greatly impacted by the militiamen’s deaths because they are willing to take action “by day and by night” to make sure this does not happen again. In addition, repetition is also used to relay how strongly the mourners feel about the loss of the soldiers. They feel “more than anger, more than scorn, more / than weeping,” and the “mothers [are] pierced by anguish and death”.
The video plays on the injustices faced by Native Americans during the colonization of North America to strengthen the modern appeals made by the speaker. Towards the middle of the ad, the narrator says, “Struggling” as images of extreme poverty cuts to an image of a Native American sitting on a box with his head in his hands. Realizing the injustices of their situation, The imagery conveys a feeling of guilt within the audience. Americans took Native Americans land and put them on reservations to be “forgotten” (another one word description in the video). Through these images and language choice, the speaker makes an ethical appeal: many Native American in modern society already live in poverty and suffering, and having a mascot called the Redskins only adds insult and shame to their lives.
Guilt is an emotion that O’Brien wanted to bluntly throw at the reader because the guilt is something a lot of soldiers faced in and out of war. There are multiple examples of the guilt in this book of all the trauma and all the love,the guilt starts to find its way into the characters. Continuing this, O’Brien runs with the psychological theme of guilt, and he does this masterfully. "They carried shame for almost dodging the draft. The weights they carried couldn’t be left behind and for some of the soldiers in O’Brien’s unit, they carried these intangible weights for more than twenty years after returning home from war"(Clark).
In “Daddy”, poet Sylvia Plath uses imagery and allusion to show her bad relationship she had with her father, how her life was miserable while she was writing the poem, and blaming her father for her status by comparing her depression to the holocaust during World War 2, thereby suggesting that her pain is greater than a world catastrophe. Plath starts off with Imagery in lines 6-8 “Daddy, I have had to kill you./you died before I had time-/Marble-heavy, a bag full of god”. In this sentence Plath talks about how her father is deceased, and describing him as a known and strong godly figure with the words “Marble-heavy” and “god.” This line also goes back to the holocaust allusion that is shown in the poem. When Hitler ruled Germany, he was also described as a godly figure. Hitler also had many statues of himself, or figures that represented him and his rule.
In “Mid-Term Break”, Heaney describes the thoughts and feelings of the people that are described in the poem, from those distantly related to him to his immediate family who are lost for words at the prospect of the death of an extremely young member of the family. Symbols of masculinity, like the boy’s father and “Big Jim Evans”, are described before the weaker individuals such as the boy’s mother to shock and upset the reader, creating a sense of suspense and mystery, as well as to develop a sense of trauma and tragedy. Big Jim Evans especially says the event was a “hard blow”, to give a sense of how much the strong men are
What Brack is really saying is that his family is upset and so many feelings and thoughts are swirling around in all of their heads, and know those thoughts are coming out. He used this strategy to show the problem in more of a dramatic tone. Barack Obama also included personal anecdotes to convey his challenges, experiences, and goals in his memoir. He used this strategy to remember his father, childhood, and find his meaning as a black American. These stories are clearly shown in part one oragants.
Hoover had veteran support before the removal of the protestors, after the protest, “Hoover also lost support of the VFW [Veterans of Foreign Wars] and the American Legion, both of which condemned Hoover’s actions in local newspapers throughout the country” (Keaney 2). William R. Rice, the commander of an American Legion post, sarcastically complimented Hoover on revealing his, “sadistic principles of government,” to the nation (Lisio 39). Additionally, the Veterans Central Rank and File Committee, ridiculed the unjust treatment of the protestors, stating, “We got bullets in 1917. Many of us [veterans] were maimed and crippled for life. In 1932 we get the bullets and gas of the police, as we did in Washington, and the troops, which Hoover called put against us.
The majority of this article is emotion appeals. The author draws the conclusion that the way the Republican leaders in the United States are responding to this refugee situation is a way of repeating history. The number inferences made between the current situation and the Holocaust pull at the audience’s emotions. The Holocaust is such an powerful part of history with extreme hate and tragedy that at the mere mention of the word “Holocaust” emotions are being affected. The author furthers this tug at emotions by mentioning the story of St. Louis, reminding the us that United States has turned away people in need before and forced them into a death by ignoring their need for help.
I think that he would reply by saying that he felt angry, and upset with all of the villagers leaving him behind. Salva would probably respond by also saying that he was very depressed about losing his family during the war. I’d ask him whether or not the war was the most devastating event that had happened in his life. If I ever was able to ask Salva all of these questions, then I would gladly ask him every single one of them. I would really have a lot of deep questions for Salva if I had the chance to meet
