Testing Men’s Emotions What turned scared, timid men into brave battle ready soldiers? During the time of the revolutionary war when men were needed to go up against the British. Thomas Paine was using persuasive writing techniques to get men to stand up and fight. In Thomas Paine’s “The Crisis No. 1” the most persuasive technique used is pathos, because it appeals to a man’s care for his family and self-pride.
Paine’s purpose of using imagery is to make his words and ideas easier for the continental army to go and fight for their freedom. Imagery is similar and supports the inclusion of repetition. Thomas Paine uses imagery to make things easier to understand just like if he were to repeat something many times to make it more clear. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered; yet we have this consolation with us, that the harder the conflict, the more glorious the triumph.” He is describing how much tyranny is like hell and how hell is not easily conquered. He gives the appeal that we must not be afraid and in the end we will have great triumph.
Paine then challenges the men’s bravery and patriotism to their country by stating the line “The summer soldier and the sunshine patriot will in this crisis, shrink from the service of his country.” This statement successfully peaks the men 's interest in the passage, and takes a jab at the readers manliness and willingness to protect his own country in time of need. “Tyranny, like hell, is not easily conquered.” This line, similar to the first line, is stating that this evil that was the British government is not going to be an easy opponent to defeat. This also puts the readers in a position of readying themselves, similar
Roosevelt states, “...the tempo of modern warfare could bring into our very midst the physical attack which we must eventually expect if the dictator nations win this war” (15). Roosevelt says this in the way he did because at this point in time he didn’t want to physical fight but he knows if the country needs to we will. Roosevelt knows that wars do not solve the problem which is why he simply wanted to aid countries and not physically fight with them, causing the loss of many lives. Roosevelt had four basic freedoms that he wanted to be conserved and saved. Roosevelt believes that freedom is being able to express yourself in the ways you believe and what you believe in.
Salva needed bravery. He found it in himself and used it to get out of the difficult position he was forced into. To demonstrate, the book says, “He knows it will be hard for me, Salva realized. He does not want to leave me there, but he has to go back and fight for our people. I mustn’t act like a baby I must try to be strong” (60).
Martin Luther King’s enthusiasm towards his cause in the “I Have a Dream” speech is as strong as America’s desire to win the Vietnam War. In this great speech, Martin Luther King Jr. creates a story in the form of a speech by including so many great traits, such as his vivid figurative language, encouraging statements, and his will to stand up for the people who are to scared to do it for themselves. In this text, King mostly states how corrupt our nation is and how we need to fix it. I believe King’s central idea in his speech is he wants to end racism; in his speech, there are three attributes that show how badly he wants to end racism, and they are he will not rest until racism is gone, he doesn 't want violence to threaten his chances of abolishing racism, and he believes our world can be better than this.
In the literature of “The Crisis” by Thomas Paine the type of writing that it use in this speech is persuasive and propaganda; and this literary form a pamphlet; the purposes of this speech is to get men to fight and concepts the age of reason is the logic and reason, quest for freedom. The literary devices uses is anecdotes in his speech because in the speech it says “a generous parent should have said, “if there must be trouble let it be in my day, that my child may have peace.” this single reflection, well applied, is sufficient to awaken every man to duty (Paine). The reader played with their emotions and give them the thought of dislike for Great Britain and impacts us as a reader to urges. The age of reason brought down on Paine the charges of disbelief as he tried to demonstrate that the Bible promotes the natural religion and argues for the existence of creator-God. And one of the quotes by Thomas Paine says ‘It is from the Bible that man has learned cruelty, rapine, and murder; for the belief of a cruel God makes a cruel man.” This type of writing in this speech is persuasion; the purpose is to decide if Virginia

Knowing a company philosophy will help the viewer to make less of a biased opinion on an idea or product.
First person. For centuries the notion of war as an exciting and romantic endeavor has existed until Stephen Crane DE glorified war in his novel The Red Badge of Courage. He tells about the true nature and experience of war through a young soldier Henry Fleming and contrasts it with his romantic imagination. Crane introduces a more realistic approach to war which is in contrast to Henry’s expectations. Along the journey from home as they go to Washington, Henry and his regiments are treated so well that he now believes “he must be a hero” with “the strength to do mighty deeds of arms.” Contrary to his expectation he does not become a hero immediately he is confronted with self-doubt.
He devises a secret plan to encourage Miranda and Prospero’s relationship: "But this / swift business / I must uneasy make, lest too light winning / Make the prize light" (1.2.542-545). He promotes their love by pretending to disapprove of them. By doing so, Ferdinand must fight for Miranda and will consider her worth the struggle. He involves himself in their relationship right from the beginning. This act is merely a part of solidifying his revenge to ensure he will be related to the royal family.
American Crisis was a series of pamphlets written by Thomas Paine. This quote is explaining that although it is hard, we can make it through and win this war. George Washington was a great leader who pushed the men to do amazing things. George Washington never left the army, showing that he was an amazing leader that believed in the army. Washington also believed that with faith we could win the war against Britain.
America’s First Committee was said to have been formed to give American citizens a voice. It also helped those who were potentially going to be sent to war a voice. Lindbergh, the spokesman for America’s First Committee, believed more time should be spent on strengthening our military rather than waging wars. He believed the policy of America’s First Committee should be, “a policy not of isolation, but of independence; not of defeat, but of courage. It is a policy that led this nation to success during the most trying years of our history, and it is a policy that will lead us to success again.” By strengthening our military, we would deter other countries from invading our homeland.
Finny is a person who you can get along with easily, so if he ever joined the war, he would interact with the opposing team, which he would cause confusion, and eventually become the enemy. Finny doesn’t have natural boundaries and how he seems to be neutral when comes to taking sides. “If he ever attacked at all: if he was indeed the enemy” (Knowles 204). Gene is suggesting that wars start in individuals and then gradually build to larger wars, where innocent people are killed. Mr. Hadley says that the war will leave a person with memories and he wants the boys to make a choice based on memories.
"Well, I tell you, sir, frankly my boys are beginning to wonder at the attitude of the high command toward my division... But I mean, the whole war could be damn well over soon... and my boys would have missed it. This book also sets up the importance of the battle for if the south were to win this battle It would be the battle that pulls the Confederates so much need allies. this book is great for our class because we have covered the revolutionary war for what the south is fighting their own one but at the same time we can see how important it is to finally take the offensive against an enemy in war as to pull some much need friend s to join your side. cause as we have seen this year we could not have beaten Britain without French support but that was the same for the Confederates the battle of Gettysburg was a repeat of the battle of Saratoga but end with the reverse affects leading to the South losing any hope of getting foreign allies to join in on the
The revolutionists fought for what they believe in and they we not going to back down until they got what they thought was right. They believed that taxes should not be so high so they took a stand and fought to get them lowered.”For imposing taxes on us without our consent”(Jefferson 171). They will go to war if they need to because they are strong and want what they deserve. The war will go until they win and get their freedom and they will not stop. “When in the
