1.type of appeal
i think it's a emotional appeal. because we can see it uses a lot of parallelism to enhance it's tone in order to affect listeners' mood. these words like"let freedom ring" or "i have a dream" can make listeners feel excited.

2.rhetorical devices
repetition:"i have a dream" "let freedom ring"

parallelism:"let freedom ring from the snowcapped rockies of colorado! let freedom ring from the curvaceous slopes of california! but not only that; let freedom ring from stone mountain of georgia! let freedom ring from lookout mountain of tennessee! let freedom ring from every hill and molehill of mississippi. from every mountainside, let freedom ring."

3.Does it commit any Fallacies?
i can't fully understand this question. but as the word say i think it doesn't contain any mistake.

4.Literary Devices
metaphor:"let freedom ring" here writer consider freedom as a bell because he hopes freedom spread as the ring of bell around the world.
simile: "i have a dream that one day even the state of mississippi, a state sweltering with the heat of injustice, sweltering with the heat of oppression, will be transformed into an oasis of freedom and justice." here writer think injustice and oppression is sweltering and state with freedom and justice is oasis.
symbolize:"i have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low." here mountain represent dofficulty.

5.your opinion
i think this speech is really affective. it use motional words to make people realize the importance of reduce racists. first, he use a parallelism to enhance his tone, then is a statement. finally, again, a parallelism push the speech to the climax. it's exciting words suit it's porsitive nature very well.

1.type of appeal
it's ethical appeal. because all things he give you just his idea. we have no evidence to prove it. so if all his ideal imaginary is wrong, every thing is not true.

2.rhetorical devices
parallelism:"the infinite might, and majesty, and terribleness of the omnipotent god shall be magnified upon you."
repetition:this speech always repeat an imaginary that you are on a gap with fire inside and only god's force can help you.

3.Does it commit any Fallacies?
i think it depend on people. people don't believe god may think it is not true. but people believe in god may think it is true and be afraid of it

4.Literary Devices
simile:"your wickedness makes you as it were heavy as lead." or "would have no more influence to uphold you and keep you out of hell, than a spider's web would have to stop a fallen rock"

metaphor:"however you may have reformed tour life in many things, and may have had religious affections, and may keep up a form of religion in your families and closets, and in the house of god, it is nothing but his mere pleasure that keeps tou from being this moment swallwed op in everlasting destruction"

5. your opinion
i think this speech mainly use motion to affect people. it use a imaginary to affect people's motion, to make them feared and then make them believe that their only choice is to believe gods. though it use emotion, i still think this is a ethical appeal because all things is speaker's own opinion and we have no evidence to prove whether it is true.

EDWARDS:
appeal:emotional. He uses many similes and metaphors to make his audiences feel serious situation.Also ethical. His speech was basically about the morality and values.

rhetorical devices: repetition. "i repeat it" restatement "we cannot"
parallelism"with...with" . antithesis"ask ..ask". rhetorical questions "?"

fallacies: "this is the day of mercy", "angry god" are fallacies.

literary devices: simile, metaphor, conclusion.

opinion: Personally speaking, I feel his tone was very calm. There is not any up and down in his voice and that is why he made audiences feel boring.


KING:
appeal: emotional. King made audiences, the slavery, feel exciting using very changable tone. Basically, his audiences are all moved by his speech because they are the same group of people.Therefore,ethical.

Does it commit any fallacies: well, maybe some logical fallacies.Some people will argue whether God exists...

Type of appeal: emotional appeal because the ton of speaker is very radicial and critical so that audience would feel serious.
Rhetorical devices: repetition-- i repeat it,
Does it commit any Fallacies?:yes, the speech said that the God will take you to the Hell no matter whether you are a good guy
Literary devices: Simile, metaphor
Your opinion (Does the speech convince you?): this speech is totally said that the God is the most powerful. The voice sometimes is to serious that no up and downs so that it cannot make me really be inspired.

King
Type of appeal: emotional appeal, because this speech exactly stir up emotion of the black. logical appeal, because all of the speech is the truth and moral.
Rhetorical devices: repetition--"I have a dream", parallelism--"with this faith...with this faith...", restatement--" to work together, to pray together, to sturggle together"
Does it commit any Fallacies?: No. I think this speech is realistic and totally the truth, want their children to be equal treated and to play with white boys and girls which was the most black people wanted at that time.
Literary devices: cannot find
Your opinion (Does the speech convince you?): Yes, and it is a really great speech that pour out their heart. Black people just had a dream to be treated equally, to let their children play with the white children, to have the same human rights as the white.

Edwards:
1. Type of appeal Personally speaking, it’s a emotional appeal. We can see many similes and metaphors to enhance the tone and mood, which makes it infectious. In those years(basically there is no true science and knowledge), maybe most of the people will be affected by this.
2. Rhetorical devices Repetition
3. Does it commit any fallacies?
The author thinks the god is universal and everything depends on his mood, including human’s fate. And once he is disrespected, human may get into trouble. This is a ridiculous thought in today’s view.
4. Literary devices simile, metaphor, conclusion
5. My opinion
According to me, this is absurd because it makes no sense to me. The basic reason is today’s technology and most people consider stuff like this as a “belief”, not a necessity. This doesn’t convince me because only hard working can make my future brighter.
King
1. Type of appeal emotional appeal . King wants to persuade the people to believe that every god’s child equals. So he has to add something emotional to create the same feeling in other’s deep inside.
2. Rhetorical devices: Repetition, restatement. "I have a dream." Parallelism
3. I think there is no fallacies here. For the equality of human!!
4. Literary devices: symbolize, envision, analogy
5. My opinion
This is a really good speech, especially when king gave it to the citizens. I believe that everybody in the world equals. But after I finish reading it, it seems that a picture of a harmonious global village appears.

Edwards:
1. Type of Appeal:Ethical appeal.Because in the whole passage,the author just kept telling us how terrible life people would get if there is no god.He used a lot of proof just like the truth.So I think it is the ethical appeal.
2. rhetorical devices:parallelism.Because in the whole work,he always told us two different stiuations(one is the situation with the god,another is the situation without the god) and compared them.
Repetition:The writter always use the situation (when you are on the spider’s wab) to describe a terrible stiuation which has no God.
3. Does it commit any Fallacies?
I think it really committed a lot of fallacies.The author just wanted to make people believe the god and all depend on the god.I think this will push people into the hole of losing motivation of life and just depend on the god’s help.
4. literary devices
Simile:
metaphor
5.In my opinion ,I really do not like his speech.Because I think that there are lot of fallacies in his speech and I think this will have bad effect to the society.Also I think that his tone is too mighty


King:
1. Type of appeal:Emotional Appeal.King tried to express his mind to the audience in a emitional way and at the same time also make the statement more powerful.He gave his emtions to the speech which made the speech owned the soul.
2. rhetorical devices:Repetiton:He always mentioned that “I have a dream……”
parallelism:He compared the good and bad stiuation.
3. Does it commit any Fallacies?
In my opinion, I really think he was telling his real mind and there is no fallacies.
4. literary devices
Symbolize: He use the “ring ”to indicate the win of getting freedom.
Also use the “mountain” to express his imagination.
Visualize
5.In my opinion, I really like the speech made by king.I think that he was telling the truth of freedom,fairty and encourage the whole society.

1.emotional:All of us don't know whether god exists.So all the writer's word are depend on his own imagination.Also the strong words he use make me feel that it's emotional.
2.ethical:He tell us his dreams.And if these dreams can all come true that must be a great progress in our society.All he desires make me feel he is a kind and ethical man.I feel excited and also moved after reading this.



1.antithesis.He only tells me the great power of the god.And we will get a lot if we believe in the god.
2.repetition.



1.No body can decide whether others will be killed.Even he is the god.It's guity if you don't save the man who don't believe in you.
2.His dreams are all justicial.



1.Hyperbole.All his words make me imagine how powerful the god is exactly.
2.repetition.He repeat the sentence'I have a dream'for many times.And that really make the speech sounds more powerful and it makes me really moved.After listening that I feel the bright future is possible if we try our best to do something right.



1.I don't like the 'angry god'very much because it tries its best to make us believe in the god.At least I thought like that.Though there are many wonderful words and allegory.I don't like the world has a dictator .
2.Maybe his dreams won't realize for a really long time.But I think the other will be encouraged because of his speech.I like this better because from his words I feel the sincere and his strong desires.I think it is the shouting from the deep side of eveybody.

1.type of appeal
I think the type is emotional because he uses lots of words to describe the scene. He aids his motional into the article.
2.rhetorical devices
rhetorical devices: repetition. "i repeat it" restatement "we cannot"
repetition: This speech always says that you are on a gap with fire inside and only god's force can help you. So we should believe the god.

3.Does it commit any Fallacies?
I think it depend on people. Some of people believes the god they think it’s truth. But some of the people the god doesn’t exist, they won’t believe it. It’s hard to say that.

4.Literary Devices
simile, metaphor, conclusion
5. your opinion
I think this speech mainly use motion to affect people to believe the god. He uses the scare scene to make people to be afraid. And let people believe the god exists and to believe him. The speech is good because it’s very infection.

KING:
appeal: ethical and emotional.

rhetorical devices: repetition, restatement. "I have a dream." parallelism. Antithesis “something in real world and his hope”

fallacies: I don’t think it’s wrong.

Edwards VS King
1.type of appeal
I think the first is the emotional appeal. It contains much subjective view,about the serious problem with god's existent.More about the emotion by himself.
the second is ethical. Evidence: Freedom, Equality,Glory,Brotherhood.
2.rhetorical device
This is repitition.It always shows us the what the god should do with the sinner.
the second is repitition too----I have a dream
3.Does it commit any Fallacies?
my answer is positive.I do feel the phoniness. Why did the god exist? what did it represent? I can't figure it out
It's true I can feel the energy,the desire,the sream.From his speech i think he wanted to fight.
4.Literary Devices
obviously it's simile, metaphor.
obviously It's symbolize
5.my opinon
first I think the speech is hard. I found the speech a little bit reasonless.It cotains too much emotion.And we hardly to look for the truth.
second from his aloud claiming, I saw a new bright dream. He sreamed for his dream.It's so moving and exciting, It's radical.

Type of Appeal:Emotional/Ethical
appeal.It describe the terrible situation clealy and fear to the god.It is also about the god and the adjudgement on the sinners.so it maybe ethical appeal.

Rhetorical Devices:repetition"to see so many…" "i repeat it"

Does it commit any Fallacies?The whole article seems that the god controls everything but some people don't believe that gods exist,What's more,"gods controls everything"is very unscientific because people may lose incentive if their destiny has been already decided.

literary devices:Simile and metaphor
Your opinion: (Does the speech convince you?)Though the speech describes so clear about the scene but i really don't have much feelings about it.I don't believe gods can control everything.Such a long speech may also be boring.

King
Type of Appeal:Emotinal appeal.The person who gave the speech experience the situation himself and the speech is all from the deep of his heart.The audience is easy to have sympathetic response too.

Rhetorical Devices::Repetiton"i have a dream."

Does it commit any Fallacies?The person just tell all the real things and about his own mind.

Literary Devices:symbolize, envision, analogy
Your opinion: (Does the speech convince you?)I heard of this speech a long time ago and i think it is really excited and moving.It is a historic time and it can make me have the sympathetic response.We can feel the people desire for fair and harmony.

the used in his speech is prefect to support his opinion and let the reader feel the truth of the force of the gods.
King:

1.type of appeal
It is emotional appeal because it uses vivid metaphor and simile to convince readers that god is powerful and irresistible.And in the listening part, I felt strongly trembled with fright because the man's voice is terrified and stimulated.So that's why I think it is emotional appeal.
2.rhetorical devices
parallelism: and nothing to lay hold of to save yourself, nothing to keep off the flames of wrath, nothing of your own, nothing that you ever have done, nothing that you can do, to induce God to spare you one moment….
repetition: the wrath of God is like……
3.Does it commit any Fallacies?
Yes. It committed a message that if you don’t believe in God, you will be punished to the hell.
4.Literary Devices
metaphor: There are black clouds of God’s wrath now hanging directly over your heads, full of the dreadful storm, and big with thunder.
simile: ……and your destruction would come like whirlwind, and you would be like the chaff of the summer threshing floor.
5.your opinion
I think this speech is very powerful and inspiring. Obviously it uses fallacies to convince or induce someone to believe in god and his theory.And from the speech, I felt that this was really powerful to change people’s mind and persuade people. The man speaks justly and severely which makes me think it was a truth.
King
Type of appeal: ethical appeal & emotional appeal. It uses the modern moral value that every race is equal, every ethnic is equal. It appeals that the Black should get the same right and treat and the White did. They should not be treated unfairly.
Rhetorical devices: repetition--I have a dream& Let freedom ring from……
parallelism--with this faith we will be able to transform the jiangling discords of hope. With this faith we will be able to work together, to struggle together, to go to jail together, to stand up for freedom together, knowing that we will be free one day.
restatement-- to work together, to pray together, to struggle together
Does it commit any Fallacies?: No. This speech is based on reality and morality.The Black did have the right to struggle for their freedom and equality.
Literary devices: metaphor: I have a dream that one day every valley shall be exalted, every hill and mountain shall be made low, the rough places will be made plain, and the crooked places will be made straight……here “valley”,” hill and mountain”, “rough places” represents the discrimination and inequality in the U.S (especially on the Black) .
Your opinion (Does the speech convince you?): Yes, absolutely. I’ve heard about this speech many times. And I know a little about the background that after the president Lincoln had liberate the Black, Slavery was abolished. However, actually, the Black didn’t totally get freedom and equal treatment. They were also discriminated by others just because of their skin and race. King made this speech to appeal for the equality and freedom to the whole society. He claimed that he believed this will come true one day and he had the faith. Even though nowadays, the black still don’t get total equal treatment, there still exist people who look down on the black and the racial discrimination which is the most ultimate conflict, the situation compared with past has been eased a lot thanks to his speech .
