Gavin Alexander:In what ways could any 2 texts on the module be said to make such persuasive appeals?

Use of rhetoric in Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Hamlet

Description

Question: Gavin Alexander says rhetoric is ‘all about persuading a particular audience by appeals to reason and emotion’ (Gavin Alexander, 2010, in Michael Hattaway (ed), A New Companion to English Renaissance Literature and Culture, vol. 1, Wiley and Blackwell, Oxford, p. 38).

In what ways could any TWO texts on the module be said to make such persuasive appeals? (The two texts I’m using are Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar and Hamlet)
