Andrew Hall Mrs. Krause English 11 Honors August 28, 2014 Abigail Adams Rhetorical Strategies Abigail Adams writes to her son, John Adams, in order to guide him and offer advice as he enters an important part of his life, of which she feels obliged to be a part of. In her letter she provides many instances of sincere and helpful advice, yet does not do so without the use of rhetorical strategies to emphasize her point and persuade her boy to adhere to her strict plan for him. Her acts of persuasion are in no way malicious or ill-fated, as they simply exhibit a classic “mother knows best” attitude in spirit of love and care for her child. In her letter to her son, Abigail Adams uses parental glorification, an appeal to the importance of knowledge, and an appeal to pride in one’s country in order to advise her son toward acts of her will. Abigail is well aware of the heavy regard for herself that she has bred into John, and thus uses this pre-established respect to heighten her own position to inform him.
