Examples of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos in Antony's funeral spe
Transcript of Examples of Ethos, Logos, and Pathos in Antony's funeral spe
"He was my friend, faithful and just to me."
"When the poor have cried, Caesar hath wept."
The appeal to character.
The appeal to logic
"I thrice presented him a kingly crown, which he did thrice refuse. Was this ambition? Yet Brutus says he was ambitious, and sure he is an honorable man."
Antony's funeral speech in Julius Caesar
The appeal to emotion
Here, Antony is building Caesar up, showing that he was a good friend to him. He shows Caesars loyalty, and my saying this he is showing his admiration for his friend, in attempt to make the other citizens feel the same way.
"Bear with me. My heart is in the coffin there with Caesar, and I must pause till it come back to me." (weeps)
Here, Antony is showing his love for his dear friend Caesar by saying that because of his friends death, he's feeling such deep sorrow and he misses his friend. He does this to strike compassion in the hearts of the citizens. He wants them to feel sadened by Caesar's death in order to get them against the conspirators and on his side.
Here, Antony is attempting to tease the people with Caesar's will. By telling the citizens no, he is trying to make them desire it more, which they do.
"How dearly Caesar loved him!"
"But here's a parchment with the seal of Caesar.I found it in his closet. 'Tis his will. Let but the commons hear his testament-
Which, pardon me, I do not mean
By saying this, Antony indirectly points out the betrayal of Brutus on Caesar by saying how much Caesar adored his friend Brutus. This reflect poorly on Brutus' character because it shows that he was fine with betraying someone who thought so highly of him. It makes him seem uncaring, a trait that someone in power should not have. This portrays Brutus as cold-hearted.
By saying this, Antony is building up Caesar's character. He shows his compassion for the people, and how he sees himself no better as the people- when they are sad, it effects him too. The makes him seem like a good leader.
Here, Antony is contradicting what Brutus had previously said about Caesar. He does this innocently, but still in a way that takes away Brutus' credibility.
Repetition, Irony, and Sarcasm
Throughout Antony's speech, he repeats the line, "But Brutus is an honorable man." His point in repeating this line is to undermine him and his character.
