Directions: First, read the speech closely and write a line-by-line paraphrase in the column to the right. Then, on a separate sheet of paper, answer the following questions:
1.What effect does Antony’s speech have on the crowd?
2. Antony uses the word “honorable” to describe Brutus and Cassius eight times. Each time the way in which it is spoken is different, and with a different purpose. Carefully trace the transition from the first “For Brutus was an honorable man” to “They that have done this deed are honorable,” explaining how Antony’s speech has led the crowd from one point of view to another.
Ethos is an appeal to the audience that the speaker is a credible authority on the matter that is being presented. It is how the speaker convinces the audience that he or she is qualified to speak on the particular subject.
Pathos is an appeal to the audience’s emotions. It can be in the form of figurative langauge, a passionate delivery, or even a simple claim that a matter is unjust. Pathos is most effective when the author connects with an underlying value of the audience.
Logos is logical appeal, and the term logic is derived from it. It is normally used to describe facts and figures that support the speaker's topic. Since data is difficult to manipulate, especially if from a trusted source, logos may sway cynical listeners.
Active Reading- Please read and annotate the lines below. Make sure to label each part of the speech that is an example of ethos, pathos, and logos. Furthermore, in the space to the right of the text, please rewrite the speech in your own words.
