LUTHER BREAKS DOWN THE STEPS OF A NONVIOLENT CAMPAIGN
Many other devices are used in Luther's letter, such as rhetoric reasoning and the use of pathos.
In the letter there is a great amount of pathos used, because Luther shows a sense of tiredness and defeat, so he tries to sway the reader to feel the pain that he has been through. One example of pathos used is seen at the end of Luther's list where he states, "when you are harried by day and haunted by night by the fact that you are a Negro, living constantly at tip-toe stance, never quite knowing what to expect next, and plagued with inner fears and outer resentments; when you are forever fighting a degenerating sense of “nobodiness”—then you will understand why we find it difficult to wait.”
