Ethos, pathos, and logos. Ethos is appealing to the reader by the author establishing his credability. Pathos is appealing to the reader by the author "pulling at the readers heart strings." This means he is illiciting emotions in the reader. Logos is appealing to the reader by the author establishing logic in his argument. These stratagies are used by all authors, not just historical fiction writers.
I had a very good friend called Liam. I used to always go to the park with him and play with each other. but one day, his attitude seemed wired. I tried to talk to him, but he just ignored me, so i slapped him playfully in the arm, when he suddenly punched me in my stomach, and broke my rib. He ended up breaking his own fingers, but i just remember how mad he was at me, for a reason i never knew.
i hope this helps!! :)
this is a story from my friend who dosent mind me sharing, but here it goes.
along time ago when i was very little, i was being teased, but i made it seem like a big deal. One of the kids who was teasing told me to mind my own business, but i got mad so i defended myself and said, " you shodent say that." the kid was got very mad and actually came up to me and pulled my hair. I started to cry, because it hurt, but someone intervened and the kid got in trouble.
sorry if this isnt good enough, but i dont know what else to write. :]
