He first utilizes ethos in order to establish his credibility and principles before he proceeds any further, which the man does on purpose in order to gain the plebians’ trust. Proceeding his use of ethos, Antony includes a solid amount of pathos, allowing the people to realize his vulnerability and start to feel pity towards the man. In the end, this causes the people to place an even greater amount of trust in Antony; making it easier for him to sway the minds of the people. Similarly, Antony also utilizes logos and other various rhetorical devices. By using logos, Antony appears to have an even stronger argument, which compells the people to believe in his words even more.
Throughout our lives, we are faced with challenges that require us to persuade the trust and support of our peers and followers. Whether speaking or writing, we can earn this certitude through the manipulation of rhetorical strategies. In his speech, the Inquisitor evokes a cognitive, rational response through logos and conjures an emotional response through pathos while demonstrating his own reliability and competence through ethos. In order to provide his message with consistency and clarity, the Inquisitor adds logic to his reasoning regarding Joan of Arc's fate. He warns the audience that Joan will rightfully suffer the most cruel and just punishment that the men of the court have ever seen due to her mindless treason and disrespect
uses high vocabulary diction, so that his audience will respect him and not disregard what he says. He uses words like “anesthetizing” and “astronomically” and “infanticide” and “gladiatorial” (King Jr. 11). Also, he writes intelligent, moving phrases, like “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere” (King Jr. 2). Along with diction he uses powerful syntax. He structures his sentences in a way to grab the audience’s attention.
The author extends his gratitude toward them through the use of figurative language, particularly imagery. For instance, he claims that these religious leaders have “carved a tunnel of hope through the dark mountain of disappointment” (43). This image of light in the midst of darkness appeals to emotion. By creating this sense of hope, King inspires the audience to join him in his fight for desegregation. Though it is undoubtedly disappointing that there is a lack of support from the majority of clergymen, King conveys his faith in them through this image and shifts his focus from disappointment to
But your statement, I am sorry to say, fails to express a similar concern for the conditions …” He expresses logos then ethos to support his evidence in the paragraph. He uses logos to strengthen his arguments toward the clergymen and to have a good structure. In explanation,” A just law is a man made code that squares with the moral law or the law of God. An unjust law is a code that is out of harmony with the moral law.” By giving an explanation he strengthens his argument and gives evidence of it later on in the paragraph. Even though he states the ethos and logos he has more pathos.
Both individuals use different tactics to appeal to the readers such as through emotion or logic. The power and effectiveness of words is displayed in George W. Bush’s, “A Great People Has Been Moved to Defend a Great Nation". His puissant speech, similar to the speeches of Mark Antony and Brutus, is used to coerce the audience. These speeches, given prior to a tragedy, are used to motivate their vulnerable audience
The sermon begins with an introduction to the story of Peter Healing a Lame Beggar and emphasizes on Acts 3:1-8. Bishop Jakes discusses that the man in the story was only expecting to receive something, no matter what it was, as long as it was something. He then goes into how people are afraid of disappointment, how to have the courage to raise your expectations, and how to break your patterns. He describes how the environment you are in can affect your success and how it’s beneficial to surround yourself with others who are better and who have different things than you do. To be able to want better and receive better, you have to surround yourself with better.
King also argues for unconditional love by reminding his audience to “love the person who does the evil deed while hating the deed that the person does”. (3) Using these bible references reminds the crowd of King’s background as a preacher. It also appeals to ethos by showing the character of the speaker and assuring the audience that he is qualified to be speaking about the power of love and nonviolent protest. These Bible references from King remind the audience of the importance and usefulness of love as well as encourage them to continue fighting for their rights. The bible references reassure the audience that the use of nonviolent protest is the optimal way for them to go about working to correct injustice in society.
Mark Antony uses the examples of Caesar’s goodness to make the audience feel bad and feel sad at the death of Caesar. A major difference between the two speeches, Martin Luther King desires peaceful protests. He tells the people not to be involved in violence and to not be hateful. He also uses faith to give truth and unite the people. His use of the Bible creates authority, but it also inspires people to desire change and gives them hope for a better future.
Through these lines, the audience receives their first image of the Pardoner’s satirical hypocrisy as, in his sermons, he preaches against greed while, at the same time, uses the guilt of his audience to feed his own. His preaching include encouraging the members of the Church to be giving with their money and make donations. This action would not seem hypocritical at all to those unaware of the fraud that occurs behind the
This effective strategy aims straight at the hearts of the readers as he/she must question if what they recently believed in, is truly humane and justified. His use of the quote from (Matthew 22:36-40) help him accuse the humanity others hold, and how they could allow their ‘neighbor’ to go through such emotional pains and
For example, when the man brought his son with the unclean spirit, he implored Jesus by saying “have pity on us and help us” (9:22). This mutual pleading for and display of sympathy appears to be a significant feature throughout Mark’s Gospel. I conclude that for Mark, Jesus responding with pity may have played an important role in encouraging a group of people who were facing great trials at that
Often in the sermons pastors persuade their audience to behave in a spiritual or more fashion. Such is the case in Jonathan Edwards “Sinners in the hands of an Angry God” where he sends sinners to hell, who do not repent. Edwards wanted to impact his audience by appealing to their fears, pity and vanity. Edwards had a powerful impact on his puritan audience because of his use of a cautionary tone, clear imagery and complex figurative language. Foremost, Edwards has a powerful impact on his puritan audience because of his use of a cautionary tone.
His sermons were made to serve as a wake-up call for those who dismissed God’s magnificence while exaggerating their own value as decent, hard-working individuals. Edwards strongly believed that only a sincere conversion is required for a person to join a church. Preachers like Edwards wanted not only to address their congregations’ intelligence but also to engage their emotions so as to convince them of the weight of their iniquity and motivate them to seek salvation from the wrath they could expect from a powerful God. The results were encouraging as revival was spreading throughout the colonies, but one congregation in Enfield, Connecticut, seemed to be resistant to the call for radical conversion. In response, Edwards was invited to preach there.
In the book he uses a series of examples; wealth, wisdom, popularity, and pleasure. To show how each of them ultimately ends in disappointment IF it becomes the sole reason for your existence. Earlier I stated how, in todays world, most of us are chasing after Money, Power, and Respect but how many of us are willing to take the responsibility, hard work, and stress that comes along with possessing these qualities? Ecclesiastes 1:18 reads " The greater my wisdom, the greater my grief. To increase knowledge only increases sorrow".
