JE #22: MLK’S “LFBJ” QS 1-6 (RHETORIC
AND STYLE)
1.What is King’s tone in the opening paragraph? How might you
make an argument for it being ironic?
2. Why does he arrange paragraphs 2-4 in the order he does?
How would reversing the order have changed the impact?
3. How do King’s allusions to biblical figures and events appeal
to both ethos and pathos?
4. Why does King go into such detail to explain the basic
principles and process of the nonviolent protest movement?
5. In the long sentence in paragraph 14 (beginning with “But
when you have seen…”), why does King arrange the “when”
clauses in the order he does? Try repositioning them and note
the difference in effect.
6. Paragraph 16 exerts a strong appeal to logos. How can you
express King’s argument(s) in a series of syllogisms?
JE #23 MLK’S “LFBJ”
(RHETORIC AND STYLE)
7. What are the rhetorical strategies in paragraph 25? Try to identify at least
four.
8. What are the chief rhetorical strategies in paragraph 31? Identify at least
five.
9. Trace one of the following patterns of figurative language throughout
King’s “Letter”: darkness and light, high and low, sickness and health.
10.
King uses various kinds of repetition-repetition of single words or phrases, of
sentence structures, and of sounds. Focusing on a passage of one or more
paragraph’s length, discuss the effect of King’s use of repetition.
11.
Why does King wait until the end of his “Letter” (paragraphs 45 and 46) to
address the clergymen’s claim that the Birmingham police behaved admirably?
Considering the final three paragraphs as King’s conclusion, discuss whether you
believe it is rhetorically effective.
