analysis i have a dream On 28th August 1963 Martin Luther King delivered/gave his famous speech. "I have a dream" at the Lincoln. Memorial in Washington D.C. after/during the March on the capital. With this speech he wants to draw attention to the injustice concerning negro people and his dream to end racial segregation and to achieve equal rights for everyone.. different rhetorical To do so he makes use of many devices which I am going to examine/analyze in the following text. First of all king addresses his audience directly by using personal pronouns, such as we or "our" (ll. 2.3.) right at the beginning and also continues to do throughout the whole speech. He wants to connect his listeners/ with the people and therefore includes himself in the fight against segregation. The fact that King uses the term "my friends" reinforces this as well and shows how important "community" is to him. personally. Furthermore he begins his speech with an allusion / reference to Abraham Lincoln who signed the Emancipation Proclamation in 1863 (ll. 3.f.), His 26th Oct. knowledge of the proclamation proves his credebility it and also picks up his own dream, because it had already shaped the sense of freedom of blacks.

hundred years later" for example (ll. 7.ff.) stresses the inequalities black Americans are still facing 100 years after the abolishment of slavery. Most famous is the anaphora "I have a dream" (ll. 32 ff.) which King uses to point out his understanding of freedom and equality. King's dream and his values are love, faith, hope Ill. Soff.), racial justice (ll. 27-ff) and brotherhood (le. 35. ff.) so that black and white. children one day are united and treated equally regardless of their skin color. "With this faith" (ll. Joff) and "Let freedom ring" are other examples for anaphoras with them he wants to hint at a peaceful and most important non-violent realization of his dream and to possible and necessary stress the geographic extent of it. Additionaly he makes use of images and metaphors to illustrate and visualize his ideas. "A great beacon light of hope" (ll.4) at the beginning points. out the large impact of the Emancipation Procla- mation for the history of African Americans in the United States King equates (the light with freedom and the darkness and night with injustice and oppression. The "flames of withering injustice" visualize the danger and threat of injustice for negros a check" Furthermore he talks about "cashing (le 22 ff.) which stands for the white's debt of equality and justice they are to the blacks. too. At the end of the first half of the speech king also mentions another reference, this time one to the American Dream. This makes his own dream more powerful, because it appeals to whites and blacks. The following allusion including the quote "We hold these touths to be self-evident; that. which is all men are created equal." "taken from the Declara- tion of Independence shows that his dream is deeply rooted in the foundation of the nation and in the care principle. King refers to a document written by white men which is still not carried out in reality. Numerous repetitions, enumerations and a parallel sentence structure underline his opinion and dream as well Repeating "brother hood" (Il 36,...) means that they are united in their fight against racism Examples and numerations (ll 47ff, 7u) point out the equality of whites and blacks and stress the unity of people, even when they have different beliefs. Also various adjectives visualize and illustrate his dream of equality throughout his whole speech. At the end he then appeals to the audience to take action and realize equality with the phrase: "If America is to be "great a great nation this must become true" Ill.63.f.). There he refers to everything he said in his speech. Looking at all the mentioned aspects above it is clear to say that by using especially anaphoras and metaphors Martin Luther King wants to convince his audience of the importance of taking action against racial segregation and injustice as soon as possible, because to his mind racial justice should already have been achieved.
