Use of Language in Old Major’s speech, English homework help


Re-read Old Major’s speech and analyze his use of language. Why is Old Major so persuasive, considering his use of language (syntax, diction, rhetorical devices)? As well as any other specific syntax (inversions, sentence types, use of phrases, active voice, etc.) and diction (negative or positive connotations, double-meanings, etc.). Use these specific grammatical/rhetorical terms.

Make sure that you have a clear claim that you can back up with cited evidence (“cited” means include the page number) and full warrant. Focus on the language in the book, not on the historical figures Old Major may represent.
