Discussion Board 6
Respond to ONE of the following questions:
- Martin Luther King uses logos (the message), ethos (his credibility), and pathos (the emotional connection to the reader) to convince a group of pastors that his cause should also be their cause. Discuss the ethos King portrayed to the reader. How did he prove to the audience it was worth listening to his voice?
- Jonathan Swift’s use of satire could be considered vulgar and extreme if taken literally. Do you think this was an effective rhetoric strategy? If you agree, what specifically worked well instead of confronting this problem with more realistic suggestions? If you feel this approach is ineffective, why? What would you do differently?
