You all did love him once, not without cause;
What cause withholds you then to mourn for him? (3.2.101-102)

Which form of rhetoric is best seen in the above statement and why?


Logos; this appeal is best seen here when Antony comments on the people's fickle characters by providing them with an unrealistic reason for their inability to mourn Caesar.


Pathos: Antony is using the pathos appeal when he offers this statement up to the citizens to make them realize that they loved Caesar because of good qualities he had; therefore, they have no reason to discredit these feelings for him.


Ethos; Antony uses the ethos appeal in an attempt to prove to the citizens that what they are doing, supporting the conspirators, is wrong, and this is their opportunity to do the right thing.
