Okay. So I would go through the text and find examples of ethos, pathos, and logos. Also look for some metaphors and other figurative language.
what are ethos, pathos, and logos? I haven't learned that yet.
Ethos is things that make the reader have an ethical appeal to the text. Like if I wrote a paper on how puppies are being abused in pet shops, that would make you feel emotional.
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
I'm sorry I mean Pathos
Okay thanks :) what about ethos and logos?
Logos is logical explanations in writing which can be statistically based. If you say "4 out of 10 students failed the test." you would think it is more credible than just saying "A couple of people passed the test."
Awesome! Thanks so much for the help! I have a really stupid question... what is an analysis? I kind of know what it is, but I'm not 100% sure.
And Ethos is a shared belief in a community. So I know King was very spiritual so you could use God or Christianity in that aspect.
An analysis would be creating a thesis which is basically "I think King uses (example), (example), and (example) in his writing to influence his readers."
The thesis would be your first paragraph and the rest of your paragraphs are for explaining your examples.
Thank you so much! There needs to be more of you on this website to help explain stuff haha :)
No problem! Haha thanks. This is just my favorite subject.
