Ethos, Pathos, and Logos

Broken heart symbolImage via Wikipedia
In my paper I have tried to appeal mostly to the reader's emotions because I feel that this sort of occasion deals mostly in that field, but I try to dabble in the other areas just to make a well rounded argument. My logical argument is that public proposals are no longer a question but a statement, and this is the wrong approach to such an intimate occasion. I appeal to the emotions by making the reader envision the hopes and dreams of the woman and then making them realize that these dreams will be crushed if they make this terrible mistake. Finally, I establish my credibility but putting myself into the situation and giving my personal insight.This area was difficult for me because I have yet to reach this state in my life, but I feel that because I am a woman I can understand where these other women are coming from.

  1. I like how you say that when you are asking in public it's more than a statement. I don't know if I could say anything if someone proposed to me in public, defiantly not a no. I love this topic.

    1. Agreed! I would probably freeze up and then pass out or something! I'm glad you like it though.
