Example text

How did his rhetoric and oratory include the Aristotelian triad: logos, pathos, and ethos? Finally, it will examine an element often ignored in discussions of speech: how JFK’s political and policy goals influenced the strategy behind his speeches. The chapter examines over 30 of JFK’s presidential speeches, especially (1) his Democratic Convention Acceptance (1960a); (2) Houston Ministerial Address (1960b); (3) Inaugural (1961b); (4) UN Address (1961d); (5) Rice University speech on space (1962b); and (6) American University Commencement speech (1963).

Johnson, 1964d) In ‘To Fulfil These Rights’ Johnson identified a cycle in American history: It is the glorious opportunity of this generation to end the one huge wrong of the American nation and, in so doing, to find America for ourselves, with the same thrill of discovery which gripped those who first began to realise that here, at last, was a home for freedom. (Johnson, 1965c) The jeremiad expressed three convictions: the work begun is not yet finished, this was a critical moment in history, and the future lay in the hands of the American people.

JFK uses single-word metaphors, such as in his first UN address when he used the metaphor of jailor to express the need to tolerate many economic systems (Kennedy, 1961d): ‘conformity is the jailer of freedom’. ’ Furthermore, JFK used simile to put statistics in context, such as during his 1962 Rice University speech (Kennedy, 1962b). Here, he uses an analogy expressing the difficulty of landing a man on the moon.
