Rhetorical piece by AJ Gilpin

Martin Luther King Jr's "I Had a Dream" speech.

  • What made this speech rhetoric was a lot of pathos.
  • There was so much emotion in the way MLK gave the speech and the content would also appeal to the listeners emotions.
  • He also used some logos while he talked about Abraham Lincoln by using dates and stating facts.
  • Ethos was the hardest for me to find but I think he had some near the end talking about what the children will be doing.

  1. I agree that the king used a lot of pathos. He strongly appealed to peoples emotions throughout his entire speech.
