  • A Rhetorical Analysis Of Speech By Edward R. Murrow

    Speech #1 Edward R. Murrow, a CBS reporter and war correspondent delivered a report from Buchenwald, Germany on April 16, 1945. He delivered this dialect upon seeing the atrocities committed by the Germans towards the Jews. He addresses the American people, describing the scene he had witnessed at this labor camp, which he found the scene to be so unbelievable that he is rendered speechless many times through out his speech. Murrow’s outrage is so apparent through-out his account, that it is even felt by the audience, making it an emotive speech. His objective is to induce his audience with anger and horror for what had been done. Murrow uses short punchy sentences as well as vivid details to evoke emotions within his audience. He uses details but has the perfect balance of being able to create a picture in the listener’s mind, yet not overdoing it and getting lost in the specifics. For example when he describes his experience with see the children, he uses short, to the point sentences like: “Some were only six.” Or “The others showed me their numbers.

An example is when he describes the courtyard of Buchenwald. “…We proceeded to the small courtyard. The wall was about eight feet high…. We entered. It was floored with concrete.” These type of sentences are found through-out his entire account, intensifying the emotions of his audience.…
