Abraham Lincoln: Gettysburg Address Analysis: The Gettysburg Address was written and delivered by US president Abraham Lincoln in November 1863-the height of America's Civil War. The short speech honored soldiers who died during the recent, pivotal Battle of Gettysburg, when Union forces turned back an invasion by the Confederate Army. The speech also called on US citizens to rededicate themselves to freedom and equality for all Americans. The speech " Gettysburg Address " delivered at Gettysburg, Pa. on november 19th 1863 by Abraham Lincoln, during the time of the civil war, deals with the struggle of the United Nations at that time. Abraham Lincoln gives his most famous speech as president and was able to use this speech as a sign of hope for the people who have lost it and their beloved ones. Although his speech was so short, he could show to many people the importance of a new unity and ways to the people needed. In his speech, one can recognise numerous stylistic devices with which Lincoln tried to convince his audience to support his opinion. At the very beginning of his speech Lincoln tries to inform the people that the United States is founded on the principle of equality and he plans to do all he can to remain it that way....

The citizens in the country at that time wanted the country to come back together on the principles it was founded on. "[O]ur fathers" (1.1) is a metaphor which stands for the descendant presidents of the country. Moreover, if one look even more closely to his speech, you can see that he uses a inclusive language to show respect to his listeners but also for the people, „who [have lost] their life on the battlefield" (l. 4-5), ( cp. “ we are engaged "(1.3) ). In the same line, 5, Lincoln utilises an euphemism "a final resting place" and also the repetition of the same consonant in short succession through the word "f", such as battlefield, field, final, for, and fitting (1.4-6), so that the people can remember the fatal situation they were in, at that time, but also for the people who have lost their lives. To create unit with his citizens, he repeats himself speaking of the personal pronouns "we"( I. 2,4,6,7,9,12,13). Furthermore, he turns to recognise those who have fallen for their country(l. 4-5). And because of this fact, he effectively uses contrast by stating " those who are here gave their lives that this nation might live" (l. 5-6) By using this contrast, he create interest to the living people, who need to complete the "unfinished work❞(1.10). Also when analyzing his speech, it is clear that within the speech there are nomerous repetitions such as dedicate (l. 2,4, etc.) shown. Evenmore, in line 7, an anaphora can be clearly seen by using " we cannot [...],we cannot [...], we cannot" this is also a tricolon, which he uses, in order to make his statement. To heighten the audience's attention, Lincoln employs metaphors at the end of his speech because of the "dead" people, who " they gave the last full measure of the devotion" (1.13). With this statement, he shows the massive respect for those who fought for their country, now the rest is up to those, who are still alive. Lincoln tries his best to influence his audience to understand the importance of their country's equality and "liberty ". To win over so, he also puts another metaphor at the end of his speech " birth of freedom" (1.15) Finally he finishes his speech with another tricolon " people, people, people(l. 15) to engage the citizens.
