Rather than Thatcher’s heartfelt vote of sympathy for a colleague presumably known by most within the conference, Luther Kings audiences only common ground is their struggle and desire to take action, and he attempts to arrest the feeling of this need.Here, King is dealing in emotive absolutes, building up the importance of the event, and stirring he crowd into excitement and attentiveness, ready to take in the rest of his great speech.
Rather than speaking to a more contained group of political figures, he is responsible for enflaming the hearts of thousands of concerned individuals who may well however have come from all walks of life, and his opening rhetoric seems to reflect this.
Rather, they are expressions of a state of being that is contrary to American History and instants that go against the fundamental nature of the nation. King's repeating of "I have a dream." In each of its uses, the phrase evokes a vision of America that is contrary to its reality.
The repetition technique expertly shows how different American reality is from American history.
Within this essay, I will be investigation Thatcher’s and King’s manipulation of such techniques.
Beginning with Margaret Thatcher’s speech to the Conservative Party Bournemouth conference in 1990, it is interesting to note how she begins her speech with an impassioned mention of a former colleague killed in Ireland.
