    setting, where the only audience is the individual, speaking to himself. Regardless of the size or location, words are impactful to whomever they’re delivered. Admired are the individuals who realize a moment to persuade and seize it readily. Harvey Milk is one such individual. Milk’s role as a rhetorician can be likened to that of Socrates in Plato’s The Trial and Death of Socrates, and his speech works to address his historically situated audience, the San Francisco City citizens and government, and their largely anti-gay mentality, through encouragement to be catalysts of hope, appealing to the indignation of the audience against wrongful treatment of minorities in a pathos appeal introduced by Martin Buber and later analyzed by David Brooks in a New York Times piece “Read Buber Not The Polls”, as well as appealing to his own ethos as Fredrick Douglass does in his speech, “What to the Slave is the Fourth of July”. A closeted homosexual at the start of his political career, Milk became open about his sexuality in his forties, beginning his involvement with homosexual civil rights. This particular campaign speech, made during Milk’s run for city supervisor in San Francisco, highlights Milk’s identity as a homosexual man fighting for equal rights during a time of open discrimination against gays, as well as his ability to persuade an audience with powerful rhetoric. Addressing an audience that is not necessarily made up entirely of people supporting gay rights, Milk…

    Martin Buber believes that our existence consists of the relationships we have with other people and the world around us. These relationships can be split into two categories, the I-You, and the I-It. In the I-You, one “stands in relation” to the other being, seeing them as they truly are, every part of them comes together to form one whole being (Buber 60). The I part of the word I-You sees all the characteristics of the You, yet they all become relative – as they are seen through the light of…

    “I can consider a tree,” Martin Buber states in his book I and Thou, “I can subdue its actual presence and form so sternly that I recognize it only as an expression of law” (22). This idea of Buber’s that humanity’s classification demeans the true value of an item or individual is a motif that the writers of the poems “Adam’s Task” and “Naming the Animals” employ in response to the creation myths of Genesis. In both of the response poems, John Hollander and Anthony Hecht focus upon the task of…
