24 Rhetorical Devicesl. Slogan: Short easy-to-remember phrase – often shows up on bumper stickers, campaign literature, etc. 2. Specific Evidence: detailed evidence and lots of it is necessary to back up any opinion. 3. Verbal Irony: words that seem to say one thing but actually mean the opposite. Antony says that Brutus is an “honorable’ man, but he means the exact opposite. How can we tell? Listen to the tone or emotion as the character speaks. 4. Loaded Words: some words are loaded with powerful connotations, or emotional overtones and associations. The associations may be either positive or negative. 5. Repetition: Advertisers know that people tend to remember and eventually believe messages that are repeated. What messages in the campaign are repeated for effect? Is it effective? When does it become less effective? 6. Parallelism: repeated grammatical structures 7. Rhetorical Questions: questions requiring no answer because the answer seems obvious. 8. Euphemisms: “Telling it like it isn’t” or substituting a pleasant term for a blunt one. 9. Hyperbole: Gross exaggerations for effect 10. Appeals to Self-Interest and Other Emotions: People can be made to care most about themselves, and everyone longs for a happier, “better” life. Consider the speeches of both Brutus and Mark Antony.
25 Ethos / Logos / PathosWriters persuade by appealing to ETHOS, LOGOS and PATHOS.ETHOS: CredibilityExpertise & knowledge, experience, training, sincerity, etc.LOGOS: ReasonClarity & rationality, specific details, facts, statistical data (numbers), expert testimony, etc.PATHOS: EmotionPersonal anecdotes, figurative language, “loaded” words (with strong connotations – positive or negative), vivid description, visual elements, etc.

33 Exit Ticket Questions: Non-Honors: If Brutus and Marc Antony were running for president, whom would you vote for?Honors: Why is Brutus considered the tragic hero of the play?Question #2What is Shakespeare’s message about human nature? (What does the play suggest about what it means to be human?)
34 “You blocks you stones, you worse than senseless things!” (3.1.37) One of the qualities of ‘being human’ is the ability for independent thought, for new ideas, and being ‘uniquely useful.’But: how often are we swayed into thinking ‘along with the crowd?’How often are we either convinced, persuaded, or pressured into thinking – and acting – in ways we’d otherwise not?One of Brutus’ flaws was trust that all Romans’ were ‘noble’ and able to think for themselves. But Antony was able to change their minds.What are ways that society attempts to ‘sway us?’ Can our culture exist, if we are ‘senseless things?’What kind of leader might we have?Cassius said of Caesar that he was great, only because Rome was ‘rubbish and … offal’ ( ).Brutus justifies his actions by ensuring Roman freedom: “who is here so base that would be a bondman(slave, servant)?’ ( )
