He used repetition to try and sway the plebeians. He often refers to Brutus as an “honorable man”, each time with more sarcasm. Antony also uses reverse psychology on the crowd. He tells everyone about “Caesar’s will”, however, he says that he cannot read it. This makes everyone beg for him to read it.
Both Brutus and Antony delivered great eulogies to Caesar, but Marc Antony’s was more persuasive to the crowds of Rome. Although both Mac Antony and Brutus used logical arguments to persuade the crowds of Rome, Antony’s eulogy caught the crowd’s attention more effectively. As Antony explains “you all did see at the Lupercal I presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse: was this ambition” (citation). Antony here in his eulogy is trying to explain was nothing near too ambitious if he would refuse a crown three times. Antony is befuddled that
The Disdain of Total Equality Total equality may seem fair and justifiable in the eyes of some people, but in many cases it turns out to be little more than a form of oppression, in which a group of people limit the abilities of others. Throughout the story Vonnegut speaks of this necessity for equality and the means that the government goes to achieve it by using devices called ‘handicaps’; one example of this is George’s earpiece, “A buzzer sounded in George’s head. His thoughts fled in panic, like bandits from a burglar alarm.” Vonnegut’s simile here creates a sort of loud diction, which expresses the sheer discomfort invoked by these restraints on the person wearing them. The governing body in this society views this as the solution to a problem, one that happens to be relatively impossible to solve, this is how Vonnegut incorporates satire into his story. He is poking fun at the age old concept of ‘equality,’ one that has inspired wars and movements alike; he accomplishes this by creating a system to make everyone equal, a system that happens to be just as stupid as the idea of ‘total equality.’ Under this system equality is achieved, but it is at the cost of individual freedom and a society full of stupid people, this in-turn creates the situational irony found in the story.
Assertions has made the impact on the world, on whether to " consider" on learning the cold truth and accepting the truth. Antony's use of such rhetoric devices leads the crowd to want more and to learn more information, because the more who know about the cause and effect of the loss of Caesar, the more people will revolt against Brutus. Overall, Antony uses
Ethos, Logos, and Pathos in Julius Caesar Brutus and Antony both use emotional appeal, a self image, and logic to extract pity and anger among the audience in their speeches, however Antony spoke 2nd, allowing him to easily counter Brutus’ arguments with logic, logos. Brutus, an honorable, loyal citizen of Rome that is highly respected by the town speaks with his honorable self image, logic and emotion to compete for the crowd’s favor. Brutus, having a high reputation for being trustworthy, uses his image, ethos to his advantage. “Believe me on my honor and keep my honor in mind, so you may believe me.” (3,2 pg.127). Right away, the crowd is moved by Brutus’ speech and is immediately on Brutus’ side.
This characterises Iago as a dishonest & deceptive character, contrary to what seems to be popular belief; it allows the audience to question their previous impressions of Iago, who initially appeared to be an honest and loyal character. The other characters are continually led to believe this, solely due to the reputation he has gained for himself merely for the success of his plan. The way Iago represents himself – as an honest and loyal man – is what leads to the eventual success of his plan to manipulate Othello into believing Desdemona cuckolded him. Othello begins to trust Iago; he entrusts him to take the responsibility of escorting his wife, Desdemona, to Cyprus: “My Desdemona must I leave to thee” (I iii 291) and he places trust on
In the play, Marc Antony is speaking to the common folks of Rome, whose opinions change as quickly as the Tucson weather. He uses this to his advantage when eulogizing Caesar, and draws upon the sympathy, inconsistencies, and greed of the citizens in his speech. Marc Antony starts off using a strong sense of pathos, or emotional appeal. He uses this strategy a lot throughout his speech. In the first line of his speech, “Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears” (Line 1), he is building a connection with the crowd, letting them know that he is one of them, their friend, and that they are all part of the great country of Rome.
We can also tell that every experience he goes through is glorified, that everything worked out for the better. It almost seems that Dane takes things too lightly; when he should be active about a situation or argue about something, it seems that he would always brush it away saying in a way, ‘God has my back.’ In terms of Bacon, his biases are more obvious, as he is not only more boisterous in character, but also as the point he is making is, to him, vital to the future of the colony. An example of Bacon’s biases is found on page fifty three: “...to oppose and indeavour the destruction of these honest quiet neighbors of ours”. Here, we can see Bacon’s bias in terms of personal opinions and power. By reading Bacon’s declaration the reader can see that he is on a quest for personal power.
At several points in the story, he all but addresses us directly, imploring us, for example, to notice how bad Aylmer looks in comparison even to an animal like Aminadab. The narrator can also be characterized as a moralist who condescends to his readers. Rather than trusting us to figure out the symbolism of the birthmark, for example, or allowing us to draw our own conclusions about the soundness of Aylmer’s experiment, the narrator rushes to explain every metaphor and symbol as if we might miss his point. The strong narrative voice of “The Birthmark” epitomizes a key difference between modern American short stories and nineteenth-century American short stories. Modern stories are often told in an objective, distant, even ironic voice, whereas nineteenth-century stories were usually told by passionate narrators who infused their own strong opinions.
Both his actions and thoughts showed how jealous he was of Finny. The traits Phineas possessed were a major cause of the envy. Gene let his jealously overcome him, and ended up seriously injuring his “best friend”. To begin, Gene wanted Finny’s way of smooth-talking. There were many times when Phineas did something wrong and simply talked his way out of it.
